Volvagia Zelda OoT for Link's Blacklist

Zefy from France drew the first submission of Volvagia in 2012 and wanted to participate in the first round of Link’s Blacklist already but missed the deadline. She thought with that, there would be no chance to get her artwork into the project, when it was published in December, but when i saw it i just talked with Zefy and we decided to put it into the second round. To that time, Volvagia was claimed another time though and well..that’s why we have two submissions of the evil dragon already 🙂

@her inspiration why Link and Volvagia are friends there:

“I always thought Volvagia was naturally “nice” and it only turned mad because of Ganon… so I wanted to show an alternate ending for these two”

Volvagia is the boss of the second dungeon in Zelda: Ocarina of Time, the Fire Temple and maybe the same character as the Barbra boss in Zelda II.

In Zelda OoT Volvagia is also known as the Subterranean Lava Dragon and is a big snake like dragon, most likely based on the Chinese forms of dragons. In the game Link must defeat it under any circumstances, otherwise Hyrule could become a total wasteland due to the destructive and aggressive nature of this ancient beast which was revived by Ganondorf.

Our second submission is quite the opposite of the first one. Rhafiel from Mexico wanted to stick more to the source and illustrated the…”relationship” between Volvagia and the Goron’s which were eaten by Volvagia.

While Zefy’s art was created with digital tools, the one by Rhafiel was made with traditional tools like watercolor, ink and pencils, means we have to quite different art production styles represented through the first two submissions about Volvagia.

“Volvagia has always been one of my favorite boss battles, how can you not love that overgrown snake dragon lizard lava jerk?”


GraniteFire is a relative new member of the Game-Art-HQ Community and his take on Volvagia from Zelda: ocarina of Time is his first contribution to Link’s Blacklist after a good couple of great works for our Art Challenges earlier in 2015 🙂
