"Young lad, do you plan fighting the mighty beast Ganon? It once was a proud man, blessed with a bright mind and imense power by the goddesses. But he strived for too much. So when he gained the land the desired for, his mind fell to the darkness.
The man was swallowed, leaving behind a struggeling beast. Now it is not more than a wild animal, blind of anger and desperation, waiting for someone to finally release it.
Will you have the courage to strike the giant, young lad?

So go on.

But it is dangerous out there. Take this."

Love this one, has a great 'old medieval legend' feel too it. Amazing line work and use of color, I also like your image description.

 The style sort of reminds me of Katsuya Terada's (aka "rakugakingu") work; are you familiar with it? He did a lot of commissioned work for Nintendo Power back in the day (the Dragon Warrior/Dragon Quest I strategy guide insert, the backstory illustrations for the A Link to the Past official strategy guide, etc). He was apparently also one of the concept artists for LoZ too. Anyway, if you aren't already familiar with it, you might like his stuff. He's always been one of my favorite fantasy artists.

I love the flowing color, the Legend on the pillar, Link's tinyness, and Ganon's beastial figure stomping up to him, "Prepare to die," attitude. 
:D 
Do you by chance have any zelda fanfiction?
