Awesome job! You make Ganondorf look really menacing despite the colorfulness of the image.

WARNING! Carry on reading! Or you will die, even if you only looked at the word warning!
Once there was a little girl called Clarissa, she was ten-years-old and she lived in a mental
hospital, because she killed her mom and her dad. She got so bad she went to kill all the
staff in the hospital so the More-government decided that best idea was to get rid of her so
they set up a special room to kill her, as humane as possible but it went wrong the
machine they were using went wrong. And she sat there in agony for hours until she died.
Now every week on the day of her death she returns to the person that reads this letter, on
a Monday night at 12:00 a.m. She creeps into your room and kills you slowly, by cutting you
and watching you bleed to death. Now send this to ten other pictures on this one site, and
she will haunt someone else who doesn't. This isn't fake. apparently, if you copy and paste
this to ten comments in the next ten minutes you will have the best day of your life tomorrow.You
will either get kissed or asked out, if you break this chain u will see a little dead girl in you

Thank you for the notification. Unfortunately, he's not the first to repost without credit... looks like his entire profile is filled with such images too. :(  I guess I'll be watermarking all future fanart.

Ganondorf is one of my favourite Zelda characters. With Ocarina of time being my favourite version of him so far you've drawn him perfectly!
Amazing job! :aww:

Hiya, i just created the article for Ganon from OoT in his humanoid form for Link`s Blacklist! There you go [link] you can see the full progress of the Project so far here [link]

Say, do you have something to say about your entry maybe which i could add on the article? Like your own impressions of Ganon in the game or the battle with him or about your entry?

btw, we continue Link`s Blacklist next year!

Oh wow, fantastic job with the site layout! Can't wait to see it in its completion! :la:

Hmm... the N64 OoT was a significant part of my gaming childhood which, like many other gaming friends I know from my generation, was the game responsible for exposing me to the Legend of Zelda series. So I was pretty sure I wanted to draw from OoT. I still remember the battle with Ganondorf and the sequences that followed were incredibly intimidating for me back then, so I wanted to try and express that feeling I had somehow. It was challenging and I honestly don't think I succeeded, but maybe someday, I'll try drawing him again and it'll be closer to that badass boss that terrified me as a child.

And that's great news that you'll be putting together another Link's Blacklist! I hope you'll have me again, I had a lot of fun with it this year! :)

Yes you are welcome, my plan would be that Link`s Blacklist just gets increased /enlarged with the target to cover the complete bestiary of the Zelda games someday, its clear that this will need over 2-3 years probably but the result in form of art for just all the funny and bizarre creatures could be damn great :-) Via my site i try to cover as many different video game characters as possible anyway and try to motivate artists often to draw characters which are rarely getting any attention, somehow i got 15 artists last year as example to draw the characters from Battle Arena Toshinden, a fighting game from 1994. I see it as some way of preserving video game history through visual art.

I look how i can add your description to the Ganondorf article there

Brings back memories of a magnificent final battle. Great artwork, the detail is incredible and the attack effects are spot-on. An excellent portrayal of the Great King of Evil.
