Doomed by Destiny by Ponthion Doomed by Destiny by Ponthion
“After several years of training, the young king of the Gerudos had to face his last task. He made his way through the Gerudo desert until he reached the Desert Colossus, where he meditated for two days without any food or water. This completed his physical and spiritual training and showed him worthy of being a king.
But this king should be different from the ones before him – instead of receiving the blessing of the godesses, the Imprisoned possessed him completely, which later made people refer to him as „the Great Demon King.”

"Though this is not the end. My hate... never perishes. It is born anew in a cycle with no end! I will rise again! Those like you... Those who share the blood of the goddess and the spirit of the hero... They are eternally bound to this curse. An incarnation of my hatred shall ever follow your kind, dooming them to wander a blood-soaked sea of darkness for all time!"

And thus is began.

Nice artwork and nice interpretation of how Ganondorf as we know him was born.
But I am more in favor for the idea that Demise possessed him after his birth or when he even was in his mother's womb or that Demise in fact is responsible for his entire existence.
But anyways. That's just how I'd interpretate things. Your artwork here is a nice interpretation of the story nonetheless :nod:

I could be possible that he may have started out decent at some point and demise ruined him. It really would give a tragic depth to his character

thank you!
The idea I used in this picture was the one I had when I first played OoT, over 10 years ago ;) So now it's a little outdated for me, but I like to combine these two interpretations.

oh my god please tell me there is a fanfic somewhere that is spawning from this picture right now

In my head there will be ZelGan and SHE WILL FIND A WAY TO SAVE HIM because of reasons. fjksl;jafklsdah

Well, for that headcanon I try to do a little comic just around that ceremony, and I have a storyline for a Zelda AU in my head (with subtle ZelGan ehehe), but not really with her saving him, I'm too much into drama XD sorry

It's tragic, I love the dimension it adds to his character, I interpret the expression as one of determination, to be something else. Really great job.

The red tattoo on his chest- I thought it was chest hair at first pfff. You see what you wanna see right? Lol

Absolutely love the background wall paintings and candle frame decor btw.
Also, where can I get one of those human-sized candles? xD

FINALLY! Ive waited for this to be uploaded here.
The lighting is SO dramatic and a great contrast to his meditating pose. This make the nearing doom so tangible.
Oh man and I love that you used his WW-pattern as wall painting!
I'm really glad you participate as well :heart:

I barely made it in! I actually thought the contest was long over, but this Sunday I read it's still going on...
The WW pattern was a MUST hahaha. I also tried to put TP in there, but it might not be the most obvious detail.
A scene I wanted to draw for so long, glad it's finally out, whoo!
