Conquer Yourself by TsaoShin Conquer Yourself by TsaoShin
Fanart of Link and Dark Link from Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. This was one of my favorite parts of the game and I've really loved the Dark Link/Shadow Link character since his inception in Link's Adventure.

Here's my take on the epic battle against yourself. Oh how frustrating this fight was until I busted out my Megaton Hammer ^^;

Created in Adobe Photoshop CS4. Inspirations for the poses from :iconselficide-stock: and Photoshop brushes from obsidiandawn.com

Link, Dark Link and Legend of Zelda are Nintendo.

See my other Legend of Zelda pieces!

At first it was fun! And then I had to keep going back and forth and tryin' to find those darned walls where you play the song, and those secret rooms... that's when it started getting frustrating :noes: I'm so glad to have finally gotten out of that place xD

Now I'm at King (Lord? idk) Bongo Bongo. The Spirit Temple was actually really fun!
Those levitation boots are so much fun to run around in xD

This fight was literally my favorite part of all the Zelda games I ever played, with the possible exception of the fight at the end of Twilight Princess. I didn't know to use the hammer, so me and my double danced for a *very* long time. Dear god the epicness was palpable.

Yeah I love how imaginative it was with the surreal stage and how different it was from everything else.  What a great game :)

During this battle, the game must have glitched, because people always rant about how difficult this battle was.  Just as the battle started, I immediately whipped out the hammer and it was over in under a minute.  Literally the easiest thing any Zelda game had ever thrown at me.

Yeah the hammer makes it super easy. If you don't don't know about (or think to use) the hammer, that's when it's hard.  If you're using the sword it's horribly frustrating because he mirrors all of your moves and you can't hurt him ><  You want a real challenge?  Go back and fight him with a bottle XD

Bottle?!  Like, AS A WEAPON?!  YOU CAN DO THAT?!!!?!

TsaoShin Featured By Owner Mar 6, 2014  Professional Digital Artist
Yeah XD  It's tough to use in the boss fight with Ganon when he's hitting those energy balls at you.  Trying to time it to deflect it back is hard o.o

Omg, beating Ocarina of Time was difficult enough, but to do it with nothing but a bottle?!

I think I'm going to kill myself just for wondering if I should try it.  xD

I never had trouble at this part, probably because I only played it recently when I was more experienced, but I must admit it was cool fight (especially when D.Link stepped on my sword!) great art too!

YES!! One of my favorite scenes as well in LoZ: OoT! <3 I love that you included the island and OMG! You can see the tiles in the water! The tree is absolutely amazing. I love that you can see that you can see each branch twist. My hella favorite part of this aside from the tree is the sparks from the Shadow Sword VS Hyrule Shield! Thank you so much for sharing this!
