Dark Link Zelda OoTDark Link from Zelda: Ocarina of Time by GO-MAXPOWER from Sweden for Link’s Blacklist Round III


Dark Link is a quite strange character and enemy in the Zelda Universe and also a recurring boss since Zelda II: The Adventure of Link.

In Zelda: Ocarina of Time he is not the final boss, but a mini boss in the Water Temple Dungeon.

Link sees himself there in the water and Dark Link materializes himself, ready to battle his good counterpart.

Dark Link is as strong as Link himself, often defends and counterattacks moves, and is quite difficult to beat for being just a mini boss.

There is nothing of a back story about Dark Link in the game..he appears..he fights Link..he gets defeated..he disappears..and that’s it.

Dark Link Ocarina of Time Link's Blacklist 2015

Adam Scythe from Hungary drew a couple of really interesting and very creative alternate designs for characters like Link some months ago which led me to invite him to our Link’s Blacklist 2015 Art Collaboration.

He liked the idea totally and was hyped to draw Dark Link fromthe Water Temple Dungeon in Zelda: Ocarina of Time. The result was one of the first Link’s Blacklist artworks that were made with traditional art tools like good old water color, markers and pencils. 

This was his first submission for one of our art projects, I look forward to his next ones!

Dark Link OoT for Link's Blacklist


Mike “Sarrus”  Williams from the UK drew this incarnation of Dark Link as his second submission to Link’s Blacklist Round II and described his work with the following words:

I was originally going to try and do the iconic watery area where you encounter him, but after a few attempts of it not working too well, I decided to be lazy and copy a background from a previous deviation which had quite a remarkable result, as I hadn’t thought of using reds in the background.

Going in with heavier lines and ink shading again which gives this quite an impact, I think.

Done in PS CS6 in about 4 hours.
