Ganon FUN by bumbleton Ganon FUN by bumbleton
FINALLY Ganon is done.  I've been so excited to get this thing finished and I went through so many ideas before settling on having him taking arrows from the hero's bow.  I guess this is what he would look like if the sword wielding Ganon similar to OoT came back in a new Zelda?  Who knows.  I combined the things I liked the most from both the OoT and TP Ganons.  Hope you enjoy.

Dear bumbleton  , 
My name is Anna and I’m the founder of YourArtPath.com - an Art Blog for artists! 
In it, we have a lot of tutorials, reviews, interviews and inspirations. 
Currently, I’m working on a blog post “Zelda Fan Art” where I’m planning to collect art from a variety of artists :) 
And I really love your take on such a popular show! 
I was wondering if you would allow me to include your work in it as well :) 
Can’t wait to hear back from you, 
- Anna. 
P.S. We have done 2 of them in the past, "Harry Potter Fan Art" yourartpath.com/harry-potter-f… and "Stranger Things Fan Art" yourartpath.com/stranger-thing… in case you would like to see what the post will look like :)

That is a terrifying Ganon.  Amazing.
I admit the first time I played LoZ, about 25+ years ago, I was afraid to fight Ganon.  Even though I had defeated everything else leading up to him.  If I had come across this guy I might have just turned the TV off and crawled into a corner.
Everything about this picture is cool.

Now this is something that would be really cool to have in actual game some day. =) Sure, we got in TP that horseback fights but this is something on its own league.

Really awesome picture and idea!

Faving!

OoT and TP are my favorite Zelda games! SS too! Actually, they were all amazing. xD

This is just jaw-dropping amazing. I love it! To me it looks like official artwork. That's how good you did this.

Haha thank you! I sent my friend my Nabooru image and he thought she was getting announced for Hyrule Warriors or something.  Oh Hyrule Warriors...  (Don't forget Majoras Mask!)

Oh that's right! I forgot about that game that's coming out real soon isn't it? I'm so excited for it even if it is a Spinoff of the original series. All Zelda games are amazing.

I've never played Majora's Mask or the Oracle games.

:iconbumbleton:
bumbleton Featured By Owner Aug 25, 2014  Professional Digital Artist
Yeah I have high hopes for it even though it didn't do amazing so far in Japan.  Majora's Mask is one of the best experiences, it's different from the other Zelda games, and can be done pretty quickly if you manage your time right.  I know not everyone agrees here, but I liked the Oracle games a lot growing up.  They're worth a shot as well if you can grab em on 3ds virtual console.  They look so good! haha

Nintendo is selling the mobile versions on the eShop.

I know, apparently Zelda is bigger in the West somehow...  But yeah, I grabbed them on the eShop since a physical copy is a treasure hunt these days.

That's like Fire Emblem. It wasn't in the west until after SSBM when Marth and Roy were introduced. From their the popularity of the game just skyrocketed. Probably because both are so good looking. (I honestly can't remember what Roy was like in SSBM because it's been so long since I've played the game. Dx)

I saw the oracle games (I think) in Walmart the other day. I'm just like: Cool.

Wow thats amazing!!! It looks so cool T v T I could fangirl for ever!!!
I always loved Oot Ganons really evil design, and how you could only really see him when the lightning flashed~ it was so intense!
That link really resembles the TP version, haha XD

I LOVE what you did wuth this~ arethey in a desert?
Btw, why did yiu choose to have a brighter background? I would imagine a scene like this would be in a rainy nightime setting with lightning, but this looks like daylight. What influenced that decision?

bumbleton Featured By Owner Aug 22, 2014  Professional Digital Artist
Haha I'm such a Twi Pri fan I will implement pieces of that game into everywhere I can.  But yeah, I imagined them outside of whatever temple they just met up at.  It's like late afternoon, and the lightning and clouds are rolling in as the battle starts.  Maybe he changes to Ganondorf for the final stages of the battle and the sky turns completely black?  I just didn't want to copy the scene exactly how it is in the game I guess.  For some reason just imagined it being bright out lol.  Anyway, glad you liked it!

I would NOT want to go up against him in a fight. Using Link as a proxy for such a fight, however... I might make an exception :P

Thanks!  I didn't know what to do for the bottom half, and wanted some sort of action.  So what better than to have Link flying by on horseback rather than standing there with a sword like we've seen 9218310 times before?
