Legend of Zelda: Tektites by karniz Legend of Zelda: Tektites by karniz

Completed: July 29th 2012
Media/Program: Paint Tool Sai
Origin: Legend of Zelda series

Illustrated for "Link's Blacklist" on Game-Art-HQ

Tektites. How I love and hate you at the same time. I have died most to this enemy in the entire Zelda series than any other monster... [not including Master Hand... they defeat you in a different way... /cry]

Recorded in a Livestream session, which you can watch right here! | Tumblr | Twitter

Heya, i just created the article for the OoT Tektites with your entry as part of Link`s Blacklist, you can see it here [link]

The complete project is done tomorrow, and wil hopefully create some buzz about the artworks and GA-HQ. Link`s Blacklist will continue next year for sure though due to its great success already in the form of art submitted to it, you are welcome to be onboard again in 2013

Heyo! Cool to see the entry like that! hahahaha... gotta love/hate those Tektites...

My only comment is to correct my... err, name?
Now, I do love Donna Summer, but my name is Donna Brown... No biggie. Hehe! ^w^;;

I like seeing these Black List posts! Very cool~ ♥

God damn, you managed to turn annoying enemies I purposefully try to avoid into total badasses. Great job, man!

Oh SICK! :noes: Is this the last thing you see if they swarm you and pin you down on Death Mountain trail? :fear:

Ughughuhghghghjhrekjksjhl. I feel confident enough dispatching these pathetic baddies on OoT.... or running over them with Epona, being invincible and all.... B-)

I'll never forget the first time I encountered them on horseback in Twilight Princess, though. :|

HOLY. FREAKING----I DON'T EVEN. :iconnoeswooplz: Ever been knocked off your saddle by these creeps?? UGH!

And that's how Contraltissimo regained her respect for Tektites. :|

You've definitely captured their flying leaping creepiness in this lovely portrait. :clap:

Oh man, those damn Tektites have been the bane of my existence for many, many years. :( Still, I friggin' love how dynamic you drew and color those little devils and that "I'm gonna get you!" vibe I'm getting just by looking at them. :XD:

ACK! Tektites freakin' disturbed me to the core when I was little... I guess maybe because they're so spider-like but with the bloodlust of a death mountain lion ._.

I love this dynamic bugs eye angle. Fitting~ xD

hehehehee... I am not arachnophobic, but I do not like Tektites...
It makes me always think of: "...they came from... behind!"
