Some of you know me because I used to draw Ganondorf all the time. :dummy: I thought yesterday, why not draw him? It's been a while! XD So I sketched him up and did a speed-paint. Not in one sitting, mind you, but all in all it took about 4-5 hours I think! :) I painted up from a black canvas instead of white. :D

Naturally Hyrule Warriors Ganondorf is my favorite version and I've only drawn that version once before now. XD I hope you like it though! And please don't mind the messiness ^^

Enjoy! :heart:

Pffft XDD

To be really fair, the Hyrule Warriors of Ganondorf is also my favourite version of the Ganondorf as well for many many reasons. Including that it's like what happens when all of the Ganondorfs from the past, such as Ocarina of Time, Twilight Princess, and Skyward Sword(even though it is Demise, but there's a good reason) combined into one to make one of the absolute best Ganondorf we've ever seen at his best. ^^

Exactly! I feel like they took all the best parts and put them in this design. I wish Nintendo showed us what Ganondorf would have looked like in Breath of the Wild though!

(nods) True that there, or better yet, it would be even better if we wished that Ganondorf's Hyrule Warriors design was brought onto Smash Bros. Even Masahiro would enjoy playing as Ganondorf in this type of style too since Ganondorf is his favourite Smash Bros. character. =3

Your name was Ganondorf's Girl before right? lol 
Hey have you read the web comic "A Tale of Two Rulers", the way the artist draws Ganondorf is mind blowing. Recommend! Incredible reference material.

Yep! XD That feels like so long ago now lol!
I have read that one! I follow it on Tumblr. She does a great job drawing him. Very inspiring XD

He has that giant manly feel to him. Personally it would scare me away lol

I've read "A Tale of Two Rulers". For some obvious reason, Ganondorf looks as though he's drawn by Glen Keane, a famous Disney animator who did the Beast for Beauty and the Beast. Wouldn't you agree with on that?
