The Final Boss by TsaoShin The Final Boss by TsaoShin
Gannon, the Prince of Darkness, faces Link in the final chamber of Death Mountain from the original Legend of Zelda.

As an '80s kid, few things were more important to me than Legend of Zelda. I was Link for many Halloweens and I often created "dungeons" out of couch cushions and blankets around our house. Hyrule was a constant source of inspiration for drawings which continues even today.

This scene is when you first enter Gannon's (not a typo) chamber and Link holds the completed Triforce above him. During my first play through of the game, my hands were sweaty when I saw this final boss after hours of navigating his maze-like dungeon (no Gamefaqs back then!).

I took liberties in the design here so in b4 omg inaccurate :P I borrowed a lot of Gannon's design off his more recent incarnations.

Enjoy!

See my other Legend of Zelda pieces!

I may not be an 80's kid, but I love the Legend of Zelda probably as much as you do. I was born in the 90's and experienced the OoT when the Zelda games became what they are today. I really think its awesome that you had this artistic representation of the game that started it all. :)

It looks awesome! I love all the detail you put into everything, especially Gannon: his armor, his musculature, the designs on his staff... I also like how you drew the light coming from the Triforce and the ground near Link's feet.

Ganon looks like a Hindu go!  Awesome!  I always picture Link as being in his 20s, but other than that I WOULDN't change a thing.
