EDIT: From Nintobervilltch 2008, the progenitor for my annual Nintober project. Back then I only sketched 11 Nintendo villains rather than 31 monsters. It's 2012 and I'm redoing the old artwork and dragging them into the new template to make it one continuous project, if you like!

005. Koume & Kotake from The Legend of Zelda series

I must say updating the old artwork but keeping the same pose is pleasing. I couldn't do it with everyone, but it's quite cool when it works.

Fusion is just a cheap tactic to make weak witches stronger!

I only had one thought when they became Twinrova.  But I'm too nice of a guy to say that word.  (To think they actually had the nerve to flippin' WINK at the guy..!)

Why did two creepy witches fuse into a super-hot woman?! O_O

I wish they had never died. :-( They deserved to be recurring characters in the Zelda games. Heck, as many times as Bowser's 'died', he's still around to this day.

Great work!

To be fair:
A) They came back in Majora's Mask and the Oracles; and
B) The Zelda series kinda jumps all over the timeline, so they could still come back :)

That's awesome! :-D They're some of the best characters of the series in my opinion.

Thanks for the info! :-)

Huh, their Japanese names appear to mean "Light" and "Matter"... I'd never thought to look that up before!

You're the second person to make a Studio Ghibli comparison. Not that I'm complaining!! If my stuff is starting to look like Miyazaki art then I'm definitely on the right path ;)

maybe if you went a step wackier and added in a cute sprog or two, and a weird and wonderful quest, you could make a studio ghibli-esque cartoon of your own!

They are HIDEOUS! I didn't realise just how hideous until I had to track down official art for this sketch ;)

The most disturbing part of that battle was not only did the two hags become this amazonian-esque witch, but that she then winked seductively at Link.

I swear, OoT Link was the biggest Nintendo pimp ever. Well, next to FE6's Roy, of course.

Hell, every Sage had something for Link! You even had Darunia trying to give him a Big Goron Hug... and nobody knows what Rauru got up to for those seven years!

Yay! Its my suggestion! They came out really great Fry! Maybe when you've got more time, you could colour some of these?

Well, I'm not going to do any more till I'm done with the daily sketches. If I colour them, I'll more than likely completely redo them instead ;)

Their boss battle was awesome. Gotta love bosses with personalities like those two.

They don't come along every day, that's for sure!
