Facade Legend of Zelda Link's Awakening Boss for Link's Blacklist

Facade, the boss of the Face Shrine Dungeon in The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening is probably one of the most unusual bosses in the Legend of Zelda games but was just a genial idea for a boss design on the small Game Boy screen

Facade returned in the Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Seasons as a Miniboss. Our first illustration was drawn by Scowlingelf who participated in Link’s Blacklist before too!

Notes and Description by the Artist: 

“My original plan for this pic was to do a cutesy mosaic, all square tiles, all very precise. But when I got it ‘done’ (still hated the mouth), it was seriously missing something. Exasperated, I scribbled a messy face on top of the tiles. And something clicked.

So I kept going. I would like to thank all you weird and wonderful people who post hi-rez closeups of gecko eyes on the ‘net for Google Images to pick up, even though it ended up partly covered and looking more like a cat eye. I would also like to thank Facade for being my favourite boss from LA (is that weird…?).”
