It happens to the best of us.
I’ve mostly been working on my pet project this week, but here’s a random Daira. Everyone’s favorite Zelda II: The Adventure of Link enemy! “Hey buddy, welcome to Death Mountain! Here, have some axes, I brought plenty!”
So I beat NES Legend of Zelda last night.
This is pretty much what happens. After being shot by the silver arrow Ganon explodes into chunks and a cloud of blood and leaves behind a nasty bloody red pile with the Triforce of Power sticking out of it which Link just goes on up to and grabs. Pretty weird.
Anyway that was fun, I had played Zelda as a kid but never beat it. I do remember fucking up my cousins cartridge and all of their saves being deleted though. hah oops. Anyway after I beat it last night I tried the second quest and ended up dying more times beating the first dungeon than I did during the entire first quest. 11 vs 7 I think. Crazy. So I’m skipping the second quest and playing Links Adventure instead. Yup!
Also Ganon wasn’t wearing pants.
Man I’ve fallen off the art wagon and haven’t drawn anything in weeks. So here’s a doodle of what I’ve been doing mostly, playing my Wii.
After I beat Skyward Sword I decided to play Twilight Princess again for shits and giggles. There are a million things to say about these two games but for now I’m just going to say Twilight Princess’s flying segment is so much less annoying than Skyward Sword’s. Also TP’s Twilight Bird monster is so very awesome.
Honestly I never played Halo so I’m going generic futuristic. Also Zelda helps this time cause dammit I want them to make her something other than a damsel in distress for once. Plus she shoots lasers from her crown so yeah.
Since Liv took the pinup approach, I was left with the full armor badass option. Nabs in armor.
This is so great, these ladies need more art.
There are a lot of reasons why Wind Waker is my favorite, and one of them is cuz Link has a family and that’s awesome. I could go on for a while, but for a series where you’re technically supposed to project yourself onto the character, Link’s family is never really a factor. It’s so much more relatable to go on a journey to save your sister than it is to just be told you have this huge destiny to save the world or whatever.
Also, I love WW Link’s island clothes. People should draw him in it more.
Dude, can I just, like, marry your WW Link?
(and the rest of your art)
has no shame
That was pretty much the same reason I loved Wind Waker too, (maybe this is the big brother in me) there was just something about having your little sister kidnapped that turned the whole thing into a personal oh hell no moment for me.
