An artist who goes under the username of Dogbomber on Tumblr has been producing some interesting Zelda concept art for a personal project of theirs known as The Legend of Zelda: Echoes of the Future.
Their work is purely based on a “modernised Zelda game” where a lot of the Hylian citizens believe that magic does not exist anymore, and science fiction takes up the world of Hyrule instead of the “traditional magic” that we have experienced in all Zelda games so far.

Their personal thoughts: “Something of a personal project, I’ve wanted to do a sort of Future Zelda for some time now, and school tossed this assignment my way: redesign an old video game.
I’ve always wondered what Hyrule would be like in some strange, parallel, bombed out universe, and this is my exploration into that land over the course of 7 weeks. This is part 1 of 2 parts, showing the various character and monster designs I decided to work with. Part 2 will contain more developmental pieces, including some of the environments and props.”
