Just a little something I thought would be interesting to get the community involved in for some fun. Pick any 2D Zelda graphic that you want, and upgrade it to a higher resolution. The repository of completed things would be kept in this first post, with the contributing artist identified.
Fairly simple process, as shown above. First, locate the original graphic somewhere. Next, scale it up x2 in both dimensions. Finally, to do a smooth version, clean up the pixels so that the look is less boxy, while also shaped out a bit more where applicable. For the high resolution version, do some cleanup to make it look nice at the new resolution, bringing it back to a x1 pixel scale in the process.
Just a few basic rules to keep everything steady, and straight forward.
-You may update a previous entry if desired.
-Critiques and edits are welcome; we want the community effort to look nice, and so the community should be able to contribute with the process of getting an entry to look nice as well.
-Everything in here is free to use, with credit. Since we don't directly own the graphics anyway, since it's all stemming from official Nintendo works, everything in here must be free to use. However, if you do decide to use someone's work, give them credit for the effort they put into it!
If you want to keep things organized as I did in the process example, feel free to download and use the template (and make it larger as needed, if your graphic is bigger) above.
