Ganondorf Dragmire by pulyx Ganondorf Dragmire by pulyx
Hello guys!

I'm back, and this time, with a drawing i've been planning to do for months.

I am really really happy with the result of this one.
It's incredibily good when you meet all your expectations, and do good job portraying a character you love.

This, for the people who never heard about him, is Ganondorf Dragmire. One of the big if not the biggest Legend of Zelda villains.
And it's also, one of the most beautiful, well drawn , stylish and amazing character designs i've ever seen.
I think the designer is Ryuji Kobayashi. But the credits in the game are kind of confusing.

I dedicate this to All Zelda fans, hardcore or not.
I also dedicate this to everyone who visited my page, faved my art and commented and gave me feedback! i really appreciate it guys. Thanks a bunch!

So, summing up.

About 8 or 9 hours.
Photoshop CS and Painter IX
Wacom Tablet.

Lineart and painting done by me.

Hope you guys dig!

This is just incredible. I love the style you picked in tandem with the Wind Waker design.

Holy shit!! Even though I have never played Wind Waker, that is the best painting of Ganondorf ever. And I have never know that his last name was Dragmire! I'm such a lousy LoZ fan.

Since this was from all the way in 2006, and everyone always improves in their art over time, I'm not going to go on about how freaking AMAZING this looks, even though it still looks so amazing ;3;

Instead, I'm going to give you a little fun fact that you may already know by now! :dummy:
Did you know that Ganondorf's swords in Wind Waker are named Koume and Kotake? :D

Dragmire was only used as a last name in an NoA translation of ALttP, though. It's ambiguously canon at best.

Love the painting. Especially the more realistic depiction of him crawling out of the sea at the start of the Wind Waker.
xployalist Featured By Owner Jul 25, 2012
I honestly like Ganondorf's Wind Waker design much better than his Twilight Princess design. His design in Wind Waker looks wicked without looking pompous. An excellent, excellent deviation. I'm stabbing the favorites button, but it only works once :{

He looks so cool. Now tell me, how did you get the face just right? I can't seem to draw him well.
crazyforchocobos Featured By Owner Jan 31, 2012
how did you find out about Ganondorf's last name?
btw you made him look BADASS!
pulyx Featured By Owner Jan 31, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
In the launch edition of Ocarina of Time came with a special booklet that had info on all the main characters and his name was Ganondorf Dragmire =)
crazyforchocobos Featured By Owner Jan 31, 2012
ah thanks, I have a Gamecube version with Master Quest and that trailer of Wind Waker (My mom loved the music from Wind Waker)

So awesome!! T he lighting effects really help set the overall mood of the piece. Ganondorf is my favorite of the Big Baddies in the Zelda series!

Microstar245 Featured By Owner Jun 9, 2011
Not fat, just..... muscular, I think.
Except for Mr. Piggy Ganondorf. HE was fat.
Blues-on10 Featured By Owner Jun 17, 2011

WeirdoQueen Featured By Owner Feb 28, 2010
the only flaw i can find is that the sword doesn't match up with the hilt...
though you can easily make up an excuse for that.
PullItApart Featured By Owner Dec 24, 2009
Is it just me, or did he get a serious chest reduction?
Know-Kname Featured By Owner Oct 8, 2009

Great artwork.
But I have a question whats that furry thing in the background?
QuixoticallyYours Featured By Owner Aug 13, 2009
Oh God. I think I love you now. XD

I soooo love Ganon, evilness and all. X3 And you made him amazingly detailed, awesome and attractive. This is my fave Ganon outfit (because I can draw it all in one sitting! Lol).

You're awesome! *faves*
Dark-Link117 Featured By Owner Aug 11, 2009  Hobbyist Writer
