Ganon by Txikimorin Ganon by Txikimorin
This is Ganon, the transformation of the evil king Ganondorf.
This design doesn't appear in any game, it' my own version of Ganon.
For years I have been versioning Zelda character's, enemies, and bosses from all the Zelda saga, trying to make my own Zelda world/game, it all started from this drawing I did for a contest in 2008: [link] , this was the only thing i put in the net, and this is the second, hopefully some day I will have time to show you all the project!

I'm so glad Zelda Universe tweeted about this.

Holy crap, this is incredible. The design is amazing, and the flying saliva is a great touch.

Doesn't appear in any game? He looks like the Ganon from Twilight Princess.
Txikimorin Featured By Owner Nov 10, 2015
Yeah, I can't really blame you for thinking that.
As I see that there have been some of you discussing it, I'll talk a bit about the design idea, so thank you for the comment!
It is supposed to be a mix of both ocarina of time and twilight princess Ganon, so both of you are right. Although many things on the face are taken from twilight princess, the idea is that this ganon would stand up like the one in Oot (unfortunatelly, the only hint for that here, is that he is still wearing the neclace). Twilight princess has fur all over the body, whereas this one shows more green skin, like the Oot Ganon. I took the idea of the fangs from twilight princess too, but I decided to change their position (TP Ganon has them in the mandible) so they wont move when he opens his mouth (like the horns in Oot).
As the description says, this design is for a project, and the project is set between Oot and Twilight Princess, that`s why he looks like those two Ganon. Also because they are my favourite ganons :D.
When doing Zelda Fanart I try to be as loyal as possible to the game model, reimagining just the things that we can´t  see because of low poly modeling and low res textures (specially Oot or Majora). What I mean is that if I were to do a fanart of TP or Oot Ganon, I´d try to be very loyal to both of them and hopefuly you would instantly recognise them in their own game title.
May be I´ll post the full body design of this ganon someday.

I see.  And you're welcome for the comment.  I honestly have not been playing many Zelda games and I only own 2: Link to the Past and Twilight Princess so I am not familiar with all of Ganon's forms.  Regardless, this piece is fantastic and I like mixing the forms of the same character or different characters with similar traits.

Just when I thought that Ganon couldn't get any more proved me wrong. :fear:

I still haven't been able to decide if this TP version of Gannon or the OoT version is scarier. I think OoT wins out by a degree, but facing this mammoth porker is still one of those great "oh sh*t" moments in gaming. 
sonofahare Featured By Owner Aug 19, 2014
It looks like it's Ocarina of Time. The eyes and rather grotesque appearance fit with the OoT version.
JaketheDino Featured By Owner Nov 10, 2015  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
But the tusks and mane look not to mention the horizontal appearance give an uncanny resemblance to Twilight Princess.

¿tu propia version? ¡que tremenda e intimidante versión entonces! D:
Los colores, las luces y los detalles están fantásticos. Me encanta como se va desdibujando a medida que se aproxima al cuello y al cuerpo. La cara te quedó impresionante realmente. ¡Felicitaciones por este hermoso dibujo! :)

How do you make fur?

Txikimorin Featured By Owner Oct 12, 2013
i first worked it in blocks and then i did the hairs one by one mostly, using also the burn tool to shadow some parts and the other tool next to it to highlight other parts. but to tell you the truth I haven't done a lot of fur since then, probably there are much better ways, I used that because it was the first way I thought about it
nooneartist Featured By Owner Oct 12, 2013
One by one... This seens complicated. And thank you very much, just asked you becaus I though it got really good and awesome.

This is one of the most epic pictures of Ganon I have ever seen. Seriously. I totally thought it was the design from Ocarina of Time, too.

FINALLY! He's actually scary here! I never could take the OOT design of Ganon seriously :XD: This is so badass, well done!

I never imagined a boy like you could give me so much trouble. It's unbelievable that you defeated my alterego, Agahnim the Dark Wizard, twice!

But I will never give you the Triforce. I will destroy you and make my wish to conquer both Light and Dark Worlds come true without delay.

lizardlea Featured By Owner Nov 16, 2012 absolutely TERRIFYING! If I came across this in a dark alley, or even in the middle of the day in a park, I'd run away screaming my head off. O_O

The detail on this is amazing!
