Link's Final Day by nna Link's Final Day by nna
You are going to need a bigger bomb bag.

This is kind of an updated version of the End of Link [link] Same basic concept and similar compositional elements but a brand spanking new drawing and painting.

I consider this a whole new piece really, and there are a lot more characters in this one, including the Skyward villain (whom I still know nothing about because I still haven't played the game, I know, I know.)

If you blog this on tumblr, please blog it from my personal tumblr so I can keep track- [link]

Aww, the sad look on Link's face :' (
Birdeyes12 Featured By Owner Mar 20, 2016
Wonderfully menacing. I can definitely feel the danger and threat Link is going to face.

kalenakeeper Featured By Owner Dec 15, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
cool! but.....where are the skyward sword baddies? I dont see either of them
nna Featured By Owner Dec 16, 2012
Thanks! And to answer your question, Ghirahim is on the top left, close to Bellum and Majora. Demise is not there, but when I drew this piece I hadn't played Skyward Sword yet (I stated that in the description) so I didn't know who Demise was. I only knew Ghirahim because pictures of him were floating around and it was hard to avoid spoilers for that particular character.

I demand that navi and midna be added.
nna Featured By Owner Jul 2, 2012
Will the exception of Link, it's really a villain piece, so there's no reason for Navi or Midna to be there?

I mean maybe Navi, but in all fairness Navi isn't a villain, just annoying :p

Wow this is amazing...
Hydrargirium Featured By Owner May 30, 2012
Such a stunning piece! I love how dinamic it looks, yet light and "breezy". The colors are great, all these elements together catch the feelings of the final battle!

The only thing these villians have acomplished is to make it easier for Link to kick their evil asses, now he doesnt even have to hunt them down
timpu Featured By Owner Apr 1, 2012   Traditional Artist
good one.
NintendoSegaGirl Featured By Owner Mar 31, 2012   General Artist

Whoa, I love the art style on this!!! And, wow, you really remebered all of the villains! I love how you gave a spotlight to more of the obscure ones too, such as Veran, Bellum, and Malladus. If I was doing a collection of Zelda villains, I would have gotten way to carried away with drawing Ghirahim again. Xp But, oh my goodnes, I just have to say it again, YOUR ART STYLE, I LOVE IT!!! I love how you made the lines for loose and cartoony to add to the visual flow, it looks so cool! In some ways, it makes me think of the paper cut-out art that they use at the beginning of Phantom Hourglass and Spirit Tracks. ^v^ Really awesome job, I could totally see nintendo using this art style for their next Zelda game. :D

haha, i was scanning for ghirahim, then i saw that red cloak or cape thing of his, and i went "there he is and that hair"
LinkQuest Featured By Owner Feb 11, 2012
Link's having a hard day.
AliceDraco Featured By Owner Feb 11, 2012   Traditional Artist
Love it!~
I like how you added Malladus in Zelda's body, alot of people forget her/him and Bellum in their enemy fanarts.
Skull-the-Kid Featured By Owner Feb 9, 2012
The redesign you gave to the characters is brilliant.

oh gawd this is so good. where'd u learn to make art like this :)
FallenAngelGM Featured By Owner Jan 28, 2012
Outstanding work!
JackAllenArt Featured By Owner Jan 28, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
wow, this is stunning, im just curious, do you use programes like painter, artrage etc or is this traditional and edited
nna Featured By Owner Jan 28, 2012
Thank you! And I use painter and photoshop mostly. This particular piece is all photoshop, with custom brushes and my own custom textures (I don't always make textures but this piece is large and I didn't want a resolution loss.)
JackAllenArt Featured By Owner Jan 28, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
its so seemless and appears traditional, im not familiar with painter but this really shows the awesomeness that can be achieved through photsohop and such programs. Id love to see a process of your work by any chance? its so wonderful and smooth.
nna Featured By Owner Jan 29, 2012
The nice thing about Painter is it was really made to mimic traditional media, the reason I don't use it more though is that it can lag if you want to use big brushes or layers, I can live without layers but sometimes the brush lag really kills me.

Photoshop was not meant to mimic real media but it's been getting more and more advanced with each version. And if you have a great custom brush set you can really do a lot of the same things that you can do in Painter. Of course painter is getting more advanced too and in a lot of ways getting more like photoshop, so it usually just comes down to personal preference.

Link looks so unsure D:
Gah... all of your artwork... ish soo BEAUTYFULL :'U
Foo-Foo-Flower Featured By Owner Jan 21, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I lol'd at your comment :XD: I love this! It makes it all the more better that I'm playing Ocarina of Time right now!
LordPendragonOfCaria Featured By Owner Jan 18, 2012  Hobbyist Writer
That is SO epic :D
Abilene22 Featured By Owner Jan 18, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Let's see...
Ganondorf, Ganon, Bellum, Skull Kid, Ghirahim (<---yes!!), Aginim (spelled wrong, I know), Veran, Zant (<---yes!), Onox, Vaati, Malladus, Phantom Zelda, Cole, and Dark Link. Did I miss anybody??

Anyways, this is an amazing piece of work! I really love it!
This must have taken a lot of time...
TheGingeryOne Featured By Owner Jan 17, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Yup, still pretty awesome :)
And I still can't pick my favourite... But the composition is amazing! I particuarly like MM sort of balancing on Bellum. And Onox reminds me of Major Glory for some reason :D
This wouldn't look out of place in a LoZ comic tbh :) It's cool!
Oh, and Chancellor Cole's expression. So many thoughts...
