The Dark King of Hyrule: Ganondorf Dragmire
"The approaching Shadow, with a cape shrouded in the blood of Hyrule.
It's Hatred reflected upon the twisted appearance of this dark Knight of Evil.
The greed for Power, starving the Blood lust.
With it's fragment of Divine Power, will cover Hyrule in ashes of its's past and Claim the Sacred Power for itself.
This Shadow from ancient times, of origin forgotten, whispered by the name, the name given the Dark King of Hyrule... Ganondorf!"
My first fully completed sculpture.
Made as a Christmas Gift for
but is also my interpretation of Ganondorf for the Super Smash Wars Concept [link]
It was all in all a rushed work, and did at times mess it up, making me doubt my ability to actually complete it. But here it is as well as i could pull it of within a 5-6 days time frame.
It's a 1/8 scale figurine of Ganondorf known from the Zelda Series.
The appearance is my own interpretation as it came along while sculpting, so there were no definite design planned initially.
I wanted to give him an unique sword, not as glowing and unusual as the one he possess in Twilight Princess, I rather aimed for a Equivalent opposition to the Master Sword, A foul blade granted by the desire to destroy the sacred bloodlines of the Hero, and Royal Family of Hyrule.
I would mayhaps call it "Blade of Din", though it's not as catchy as Master Sword, so I'll ponder upon a better name.
I drew most inspiration from the Twilight Princess version of him, as it is my favorite presentation of him.
I did however try to bring the realism from the Ocarina of Time version, as the facial structure is more pointed and human like when seen in profile.
The suit design drew most inspiration from the TP version but with the colors taken from the Wind Waker version.
I wanted to give him a full war armor reflecting that from Twilight Princess, and go a little beyond that.
Also time wise, the plot he is a part of is further down the Twilight Princess timeline (If you've caught up on the official timeline you'll know of the divided time/story branches).
Entire figure is of Super Sculpey polymer clay, the blade of the Sword was cut and filed in copper for the sturdiness and metal feel, and the cape pin chains of steel.
Cape of a basic fabric, painted red(was originally blue) and some last minute gold pattern added.
If you found interest in this and read trough it all, I really appreciate it!
