Link's Blacklist Round II Banner

Welcome to Link`s Blacklist, an art tribute to the Bosses, the Monsters, the Evildoers of the Legend of Zelda Games!

Over 80 artists from around the world draw Ganon, the Skullkid, the Octoroks and many many more characters we had to fight since 1986.

 

Have fun wandering through the darkest side of Hyrule!

There are hundreds of bosses and evil enemies in the over 10 Legend of Zelda games if you count them all together. While it is our goal in the long run to get just all of them drawn, this will most likely take years to accomplish.

To see the artworks and read about them and the Zelda Bosses and Enemies, just click on the smaller versions of the artworks here and a new window will pop up!

In Super Smash Bros Melee he was a playable character for the first time.

There are speculations that he is the reincarnation of Demise

 The Background of Link`s Blacklist…

Nope, this is not the usual ” we are Zelda fans since hundreds of years and want to draw, sing, compose what we love” thing. Link`s Blacklist came to Life when we asked the community of our Game Art HQ group on deviantARTabout  a handful of possible choices for art tribute projects on the website in 2012.

We asked about 16 bit era Heroes, Actraiser and well..i had the Idea about doing something for the Legend of Zelda series, but for a change get people to draw something beside Link and Zelda for a change (you see fan art for those just everyday). And Link`s Blacklist was born as it got a massive positive feedback by our community :-)

Project was born in June 2012 when i had the Idea for it and got a lot positive feedback from Artists of the Game Art HQ Community
