Link's Blacklist is the Game-Art-HQ Art Collaboration about the many monsters and bosses of the complete Legend of Zelda game series.

The Blacklist Round III on ZDjpg by Reinhold-Hoffmann LB  and GA-HQ.com on Destructoid by Reinhold-Hoffmann LF on ZeldaUniverse by Reinhold-Hoffmann
It is running since June 2012 and is one of the most viewed galleries on Game-Art-HQ now. Websites like Kotaku, Destructoid, GoNintendo, Zelda Dungeon, ZeldaUniverse and i think..around 100-200 more wrote about our art project and praised the fantastic artworks which are illustrating Ganon as well as a classic Moblin from the first Zelda game with breathtaking details.

The most of the illustrations are drawn but there are also 3d Model based illustrations, there is Cake-Art, Puppets and Plushies made for Link's Blacklist in the past.

Around 160 Monsters and Bosses of the Zelda games are drawn and featured on game art hq in own galleries. You can find this gallery here www.game-art-hq.com/links-blac…  . Each character is illustrated with screenshots and the official artworks as well as text about the characters and the artworks.


Now it is time for the next round and it is your chance to be part of this popular art collaboration.

Only 25 of you can join the 4th round now, 25 spots were already claimed in the last week by game-art-hq contributors who participated in previous art collaborations already and are members of the contributor group. Through participating in this round and showing your talent to the group and the thousands of visitors on game-art-hq.com every week you can get the contributor status as well.


You can claim one of the spots below with a simple comment. Not every artists can participate in this project. The artists of the first round set a high standard, it is up to you to reach or surpas it.

The deadline for Link's Blacklist Round IV is the 31st May 2014

The spots below are almost all for common enemies of the Zelda games, since a lot of the bosses are already part of the project, we try to get more of the enemies drawn now of course. If you submit your take on one of the enemies before the 1st May however you can also claim a boss character of any of the zelda games, it does not matter if it was drawn before already.

I am interested in this! The enemies in the Zelda series are intriguing and drawing one of them would be a fun challenge!

I am just a bit uncertain of how this blacklist works. Since this is the fourth, is the idea that those enemies that have been drawn are before not on the list of possible choices here? If something like that is the case and if it's not too much trouble, could you name like three or five enemies that are still free to draw for the blacklist?

There are still..probably over 250 of the many enemies in the Zelda games available..while around 210 different ones are illustrated now after 2 years, we did not even reach half-time yet I think with all those many minor enemies but also a lot bosses left.

Currently I have a very big problem. Last week I accidentally deleted the database of the website gameart-hq.com which...well basically destroyed the whole site.

According to my webhoster they have a back-up but I won't get it before tomorrow or wednesday.

There on the site you could see the whole Link's Blacklist main gallery which means you can also see which characters were drawn and which were not.

I also thought about making Link's Blacklist Round V a "Free 4 All" Round which would mean that also the already drawn Bosses and Monsters can be claimed again. As long as we don't have 10 Ocarina of Time Ganondorfs and another wave of 20 Ganons from the other games that should be fine ..can't hurt to see Ganon, Twinrova etc getting illustrated by different fans with different visions :-)

Is there a specific character you would really love to draw for Link's Blacklist?

Ohhhhhhhh that's terrible! I can only imagine the amount of work you have put into the site. I truly hope everything will turn out to the best eventually.

At the moment I'd like to draw something more or less creepy in my style. Twilight Princess was my first Zelda game and I love Majora's Mask as well so an enemy from those games would be perfect. Haha I could get a great excuse to draw some of the eerie atmosphere in those games.

Hmmm.... I think I can work well with anything but th chu chus from the games... I imagine all the main bosses are already taken (or are they?). What is the picture situation with Death Sword, Darkhammer, King Igos du Ikana, Wizzrobe miniboss, Redeads or Redead Knight, Carrier Kargarok, Shadow Kargarok, Kargarok in TP, Shadow bulbins, helmsaur and helmasaur?

Sorry, I hope it's not too much effort. I am sure you are busy atm, so take your time!

We have one damn awesome Igos Du Ikana illustration with this one The Undead King, Igos du Ikana by Golden-Whale but another one would be really cool.

Yup..put like thousand+ hours ino the website which has around 8000 articles ranging from simple galleries to articles where i wrote 2000 words strong descriptions about the development of a game character like Elizabeth from Bioshock Infinite...if that is all lost ..oh my good..I will go crazy and kill some kittens or worse....

Depending on the next days, LB Round IV will be published as planned on the 30th June, or I have to rebuild Link's Blacklist completely which will take me months. Depending on how long you need I can put your choice of a character either to LB IV or V or just the main gallery, this project grows and grows anyway and the rounds are only there to give the whole project a structure + pauses for me to work on other things. Beside the Link's Blacklist we have currently also the Playstation, Tekken and King of Fighters 20th Anniversary Projects ongoing

I like it a lot! Just requested it for both groups, it will be part of Link's Blacklist in the next 2 weeks. If you like you can send me a note about the idea behind the image maybe, how you feel about Link's Blacklist in general, how you created the image and what you like about the Guay

Also, I'd like to know: since I finished it before May 1st, does it mean I can just claim and draw also a boss enemy?
If so, does it mean I could draw Ghirahim or Vaati?
Thanks in advance, and thanks for inviting one more time :)

here's mine!

nummonkee.deviantart.com/art/L…

so.. i got a question.. errr questions. i was going to do an arm mimic if i finished this one early, but i just read the thing about being able to do a boss.

-does that apply to mini bosses?
-if so, can i do a dark link one with regular link taking up a good half of the picture?
-and if so, can i change my mind and do the arm mimic if i feel like i can't finish dark link?

thanks in advance lol
