Huzzah I finally did my image for
's round 3 of Link's Blacklist.... like three days from the deadline. XD For those of you who don't know, Link's Blacklist is a community project to draw every monster from every Zelda game. www.game-art-hq.com/links-blac…
(I believe it's invite only now though, but I may be wrong. Well, at least you have to get accepted to do an image at first, and then you get invited back if they like you. XD) My previous round monsters were the Wind Waker Darknut for round 1->
and the Poes from Ocarina of Time for round 2->
For round 3 I decided to pick a more obscure Zelda enemy: The Doomraddle from The Adventure of Link. And oh my gosh, that decision has been biting me in the butt ever since I picked it. >_< I was originally going to do the Garo Robe from Majora's Mask, but decided it was too similar looking to the Poes, and went with the Doomraddle instead. And if you don't know what the original design looks like, here you go- zelda.wikia.com/wiki/Doomraddl…
Look at that guy, in all his 80's game design glory.
I was thinking "Oh it shouldn't be too hard to make this guy cool right?" I was so wrong. So very wrong. OTL I've been trying to do an image of this monster since the round began a couple months ago and it has just been eluding me for so long now. I didn't want to do a cute version of Doomraddle, but it just kept coming out cutesy and fluffy.
But today I finally buckled down and did something so that I wouldn't miss the deadline. XD It took me forever to get a design for this monster that I was happy with, but I'm actually alright with how this turned out. I may make a few tweaks to it later, but for now I just wanted to get it up. And next round I am so picking a monster with a design that won't frustrate me so much. XD
