Ganondorf vs. the Helmaroc V2 by Iroas Ganondorf vs. the Helmaroc V2 by Iroas
For those of you who don't know, this is a scene I envisioned for a young ganondorf comic. (This is actually not the helmaroc from the wind waker.)

I know I said I wasn't gonna work on it anymore, but I found some stuff out that I had to try on it.

Yeah You might not notice it at first sight but there are a few changes made, I removed most of the line art for example, cleaned it up a little and tried out some new tools and brushes I discovered.

At first I thought of just replacing the file of the first one... but.. I can't decide which one I like more x)

Not sure if what I did with the wings was a good thing though.

I'll stop whoring this piece now. I promise.

I would like to see a Zelda game with ganondorf as the main character for his own story. the way ur drawing looks. I say that story of looks interesting.

That actually looks like Capt. Falcon who actually seems to have the same moves as ganondorf in super smash bros melee

-brainsplosion- My god! This is absolutely EPIC! The shadows and blurring are juuuust right, the colors are amazing, and I can just feel the intensity of the picture just coming off a ton! You can just feel the excitement and terror and awesome power as the young Demon King fights for his survival against the massive Hemalroc!
it' i really like that its the oot ganondorf that figths somthing form another game, and just to make it clear. i only like the ganondorf form oot the reson is, he uses magic in a way that no one else dos, he was a dissapoint ment i ww no magic he was a dissapointment in tp of only useing twilli powers, and only in oot he uses what he had as the gerudo king, also i thing it's crap with ganondorf ww he is the dessenten vertion that got seal away from oot and so is the one in tp so WHY THE FUCK DOS THAT MAN NOT USE MAGIC AND WHY THE HELL IS THERE NO GERUDOS IN EATHER GAMES I MEAN COME THE FUCK ON PEOPLE KEEP TO YOUR MAIN STORY.

Great scene, I only wish Ganondorf wasn't so faded out. :/

bird meets magic, magic beats bird, magic turns evil,evil meets good,evil is banished,evil returns, joins with bird, both meet good, both bite the dust. it runs full circle.

btw the first time I saw this, it knocked me down on my butt. No, seriously, I can feel POWER coming from the screen of my computer.

Amazing and stunning; the setting is perfect and the Helmaroc's size, intimidating. The battle itself is looking incredible and epic! =D

me gusto la estructura del templo de las arenas, pero creo que el ganondorf que tienes es muy joven, se puede notar en su complexion, me gustaria leer la historia por la cual esta alli.. ademas me gusto como lo pintastes, tiene mucho dinamismo...

esta genial!
Devillady Featured By Owner Apr 13, 2010
Excellent job. I like the perspective!

Young Ganondorf is such an awesome idea! I'm extremely jealous. Don't give up on it!
invertings Featured By Owner Mar 15, 2010
This is pretty darn awesome. That wing on the left seriously looks like it's ready to pop right out of my monitor.
Vestergaard Featured By Owner Mar 15, 2010
This will always be the coolest picture on deviantart. I love how the wing nearest the viewer is all hazy, like it's actually close. I want to draw backgrounds like you do. :heart:
Iroas Featured By Owner Mar 18, 2010
The coolest picture on DA?! Hahah I love you xD My art isn't all that great, yours looks much more pro <3
Nitrinoxus Featured By Owner Mar 15, 2010  Hobbyist Writer
This is mind-blowing! I can feel the rushing wind that the Helmaroc is stirring up with its massive wings; I can feel the heat of the unrelenting desert sun. There's just so much movement captured in this image!
Iroas Featured By Owner Mar 18, 2010
Wow! I think this is one of the best comments I ever had x)

Helmarok: GROYARGH!!!!!

Ganondorf: Now the Gerudos will see what I'm made of. WARLOCK PUNCH!!!!!

I really like this pic! I would love to see more boss battles from your young ganon comic, even if you aren't going to make the comic! (which would be awesome if you could make it!)

i love it. the positioning of the characters, the angles you show it at. ^^ good job.
AmandaMullins Featured By Owner Sep 1, 2009  Professional Digital Artist
AMAZING. I think the best thing about this is the perspective and angle. No doubt I'm sure it was tricky, ha.

You should keep doing this. It's a good idea and personally your work is fun to look at (in a good way if that's insulting in any way or form)
Ryuu-Atrineas Featured By Owner Jun 15, 2009  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Simply stunning! O.o I'm amazed!
thisolddeviantart Featured By Owner Jun 14, 2009
Ganondorf would obviously win XD

so here's the question: how will you explain what a wind-waker-era monster is doing fighting pre-ocarina ganondorf?
AstroZerk Featured By Owner May 20, 2009  Professional Digital Artist
This is really awesome! I love the POV
