The task was to redesign three items from the Legend of Zelda series. I chose items from Link to the Past; the mirror, the fire rod, and the grappling hook.
The grappling hook was the most obvious of the items. I imagined how they might work internally, and for each of the designs, I tried to show that in the silhouette. The fire rod was simply trying to decide how to represent a rod that can form fire. Two were magical, and two were more mechanical.
The mirror, I thought was the most clever. The purpose of the mirror is to send you into the past, a sort of alternate dimension. In each of my mirror designs, I made sure the mirror could swivel; the idea being, when shifting to the other world, Link looks into the mirror, then turns the mirror surface around, shifting the world around him.
