Zelda Fanart Spotlight- Project Link’s Blacklist

HachiAugust 15th, 2012 by Hachi

Today’s Fanart Spotlight features an ongoing colaboration project by the people over at Game-Art-HQ called Link’s Blacklist, a tribute to the baddies of The Legend of Zelda series.

Dozens of artists are participating, and while it will still be a few months before all the entries are completed, some amazing pieces of work have already emerged from this project. One of entries has already been featured here on Zelda Dungeon, and several artists who have been featured on this site before as well. So today we’ll be doing something a bit different, and spotlighting the multiple pictures and the artists particapating in the Link’s Blacklist project.

Minish Cap: Gyorg Pair by ApplejackMan

Kill them aaaaall by Vertuchou

Skulltula by Asashi Kami

Ganon by Vancamelot

Chuchu by Thecuraga

Ganondorf by Sugar Thief

Queen Gohma by Pertheseus

This is only a small sampling of the entries already finished, and you can see the rest of the submissions by viewing the project’s DeviantART Gallery. Unfortunately for interested artists, sign-up is now closed, but there is still a lot to look forward to with more great Zelda enemy inspired Fanart that’s sure to crop up for this project. Please don’t forget to support these artists by checking out their individual DeviantART galleries, and leave us a comment about today’s Fanart Spotlight below!

      Oh dear gods WHY DID YOU POINT IT OUT. As if it wasn’t scary enough already.

      • Name

        You Hylia! Why are you afraid of a redead?

        • Name

          I meant You’re Hylia

    • Olamarr

  • crb

    the artists are really talented great job

  • Midnafan

    Some of these are really good, some are kind of weird, and some i don’t think fit the villain very well. most of these are REALLY good though :)

  • Linkfan99

    all of these are good…..but wtf the third one???
    anyway, i especially liked the play on words for the redead one: You’Redead :p

  • Ninty

    Ooh I love the super-deformed Ganon! “Master of the Swamp Palace” has such a cool throwback style kinda like the ALttP Power Guide artwork mixed with a little bit of the old late 80′s show.

  • gurst

    gannondorf looks like a fairy king in a pixie galaxy

    • baileygirl99

      I thought he looked a little fairy-like!

  • 7thHanyou

    These are some fantastic pictures. I can’t even decide which is my favorite. I love how this one basic concept can yield so many different styles and creative ideas. There’s a lot of tension in many of the pictures, too. This project is nothing if not ambitious.

  • FierceDeityFan

    after looking at the chu chu picture, i realize how much i would want one as a pet… I would name it Chuchubacca!!! *gets slapped*

    • baileygirl99

      XD XD XD lol

  • FierceDeityFan
  • baileygirl99

    I luv the chu chu one! It’s so cute!

  • http://www.facebook.com/gameart.hq.7 GameArt HQ

    Oh, nice our Zelda Art Project is hitting some first waves already :-)
    Hope you like it. Small side info: While the sign up is indeed closed, this tribute will most likely be continued in 2013 to cover more of the ton of enemy and boss creatures of the Zelda Universe. Around 60-70 are in the current Tribute when it is finished, we hope we can publish it in October on Game Art HQ http://fanart.game-art-hq.com

  • Zanthos D

    I think the 4th one is pretty epic. :)

  • Red-tuniclink

    My favourite is the chuchu,They’re like one of my favourite enemies in zelda(apart from the Tp ones.)

  • I <3 Legend of Zelda 4Ever

    These are all really good, some weirder than others, but my favorites are Chuchu and Queen Gohma.

    Reminds me of the rogues gallery IGN posted over a year ago for Zelda’s 25th.

  • itsameluigi1290

    That Chu Chu one is hypnotizing.
    Also, I loved the Gyorg Pair, it was hard at first, but I got the hang of it. Reminds me a bit of the thing in the whale guy’s back in SS.

  • Person

    These are all beautiful . . . I love seeing all of the different art styles.

  • roedburn

    I REALLY like the skulltula art.

  • TheCuraga

    Thank you for all the compliments on my chuchu piece everyone. I don’t think it’s as good as the others, but thanks everyone!

  • InvertedTime

    This is awesome. I’d love to see (or perhaps even draw) an entry for Dead Hand or Bongo Bongo. For some reason, those two in specific fascinate me as art subjects.

  • Esther Sulca

    All these are really great. It kind of inspires me to try and do Zelda art, but I’m still going to stall…. :)

  • http://twitter.com/Peacock486 Arron Standish

    Thanks for slashdotting all of these… :(

  • Rob

    I like Skulltula the beast!

  • Olamarr

    these are great pieces of art, some are very dramatic and others a lighter, theirs a nice balance, and the chu one is freakin amazing, I know a friend who will love it when I show him.
