Power and Courage by dapper-owl Power and Courage by dapper-owl
I'll be attending Otafest this coming weekend as well as Anime North the weekend after that. I'll also be selling this print at Otakon, Calgary Comic and Entertainment Expo, and Ai-Kon.

There is a serious lack of Ganon art on the interwebs these days. Link is a given, and there will always be plenty of him floating around, but Ganon is largely under-appreciated and ever since I set eyes on the man I've been a huge fan. From the very beginning to every installment of the story he shows up in, he appears to have fallen even further into his own insanity, anger and hatred. The longer he hounds Link and Zelda through the ages the more twisted and crazy he becomes. That theme totally jives with me, and I love that they seem to be reborn happily every time and he is stuck with his memories of the past battles plaguing him. I feel kind of bad for the guy, actually. He really got a shit deal. But I guess that's what you get when you're an evil psychopath.

Sooo.. I wanted to show the Duality of Link and Ganon, opposing forces, and how Ganon always seems to be on the brink of winning when Link is able to rise up and defeat him.

The greatest fan art I've seen of LoZ. Truly. the concept. I would love for there to be more like this. 
And you are right. There should be more.
And yes. That's what happens when you die and fail over and over again.
And yes. that is what happens when the hero wins and reincarnates happily again in a future he created.

Possibly the best Ganondorf I've ever seen. So pretty! And I really like what you've done with leaving his arms bare. That looks awesome.

Oh my gosh, I am love the mad contrast in this. :D And how Link's cloak seems somewhere between tatters and.... just this streaming kind of light. :heart: And oh my gosh Ganondorf is so huge.... very menacing.

Just a cool composition all over. :clap:

Agree, definitely not enough Ganon art around here. Seeing something this epic really made my life more complete. Thank you!
