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.

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 :{
