Link has seen some sh*t, man
Hyrule, its neighboring nations, and its parallel dimensions are filled with no shortage of remarkable enemies, ranging from cute and unassuming to pure nightmare fuel. When you step back and realize just how varied The Legend of Zelda series is, it reminds you why people love it so much.
GameArtHQ, a collection of various fan-made videogame art, has recently assembled Link’s Blacklist. This gallery puts the bosses and low-level grunts of Link’s myriad adventures in the spotlight, rendered by over 50 artists the world over. I’m not kidding when I say they are colorful — just look at the amazing Dodongo, Skull Kid, and Puppet Ganon in the header!
I’ve uploaded a few of my favorite pieces below — how many can you identify without looking at the filenames? Be sure to check out the main gallery to see the whole showcase.
