Links Blacklist logo by TheCuraga

Update: 22.02.2013
6 more artists could join with Zelda 1-IV characters


Update 28.11.2012
After only 9 days all 40 avaiable spots for the second round of Link's Blacklist are taken!

There will be a third round for sure but more about that in June 2013. The next Link's Blacklist related journal will show you the first 10-15 drawn entries of round 2.
Like in the first round, a few already created artworks of Zelda enemies and bosses were chosen. These are all characters which were already drawn for Link's Blacklist you can see them here:

Mature Content

Dead Hand by Jujulica
Link and Volcania by Zefy You're in the wrong part of town... by Asashi-Kami -- Zelda Tribute -- Trinexx by sarrus


If you did not make it this time, don't worry, Link's Blacklist will continue for maybe 2-3 more years. The Zelda Bestiary is big and there are still over 150 more not yet claimed enemies and bosses


---------------------------
Update, 27.11.2012

41 Artists are onboard Link's Blacklist II now.

Like the last time only 40 artists can participate in this project, means no more spots are avaiable.

More and really  cool news are that Link`s Blacklist was seen by over 10k people already, sites like Nintendofans and ZeldaDungeon promoted it last week. IGN comes next at one of the following weekends.

---------------------------

I got notes and questions by artists here on dA as well as via email about the future of Links`s Blacklist and that they would love to be a part of it, and here we go!


Links Blacklist II
Artists can claim up to 3 Legend of Zelda Boss or Enemy Characters ONE after ANOTHER = One claim first, and after it being submitted/accepted the 2nd one can be claimed and so on

Like before, you can submit ONE Zelda Boss or Enemy which was already drawn, it does not matter when it was drawn.

The first claimed Boss or Character MUST be one which was not drawn before for Link`s Blacklist already. However the 2nd and 3rd claims can be Ganon, Skullkid etc. that is totally up to yourself. A list with all so far drawn characters is on the bottom of this journal

Link`s Blacklist is a project which got submissions of an awesome quality and creativity to be sure this stays a feature of the project, entries should be colored, detailed and have a background, except they are rendered, like the Nightmare (Link`s Awakening Boss) entry as example. This project is currently getting promoted on more and more websites, Game Art HQ.com is getting a lot visitors anyway but Link`s Blacklist is currently the most seen gallery, if your submission(s) are a part of it you can be sure many thousand people see it, and with that your name / nick and also a link to the pas... i mean to your profile /own website..whatever you prefer.

Beside drawn art, cosplay, 3d renders, crafts can be submitted as well.

Battle scenes between Link and a Monster / Boss are okay as long as the focus is on the Monster and not on Link.

Deadline: 1st May 2013. New Gallery on Game Art HQ.com @ the 20th May 2013.
You can submit your entry whenever you want between today and the 1st May, however if you want to claim more than one character, you need to submit your entries sooner of course, the 1st May is the "ultimate" deadline.

Kudos to you if you take the challenge and claim one or more of the classic Zelda games (Zelda 1-4) characters.


Submissions beside Bosses and Enemies:
For now, Link`s Blacklists entries are sorted alphabetically on Game Art HQ.com www.game-art-hq.com/links-blac… if Chapter II continues to be as great as the first Chapter, there will hopefully be around 120+ great artworks together in May 2013. This means that we can sort the entries by games now, hopefully without having only one single entry for Link`s Awakening as example.

This made me thinking that Fan Art which illustrates one of the Zelda games could be great to use as logo and introduction to a games gallery. As example a fan art which shows Link fighting in the typical labyrinth like maps in Legend of Zelda I in a top down view thats just an idea though.


So, after the walls of texts, you are welcome to claim your entry for the next Chapter of the maybe biggest and at some day most popular video game fan art gallery ever made!


You can find lists including images of bosses and enemies of the Zelda Games here at the Zelda Dungeon Website: www.zeldadungeon.net/gallery/

I'm really sorry but I don't think I'll still be able to do my part. :hmm:
But since the spot was double claimed anyway it shouldn't be so bad I hope. :)

nah its not that bad since there is the flying guard now anyway, but next time please send me a message asap, if we had february now or march i would have made a journal about one spot left. Anyway you are welcome in the next round :-)

If you have started something already, we can just move your spot to the next round or something "in between"..it wouldnt be a big problem for me since i will create the article with the flying guardian anyway, one more image there means only 20 minutes of work :-)

Next time the deadline will be shorter, there are only 3 days left now till the 1st may and there are still 20 entries not drawn, i got over 40 awesome submissions now already anyway but it seems like a long deadline (7 months) does not work as well as a 3 months one. Last year i had almost all submissions weeks before the deadline ended while there was much less time ^^

I agree, I think because the deadline was SO long I kept postponing it over and over again telling myself there was plenty time anyway but then the deadline was there too quickly. ^^; So I think it can't hurt to make it shorter. After all it's not that different from a general contest and you rarely see deadlines that are further away than two months or so there. :)

Hey so I've chosen my first entry which is supposed to be restricted to unused bosses/enemies. Would I be able to take on Stallord as my second entry? I'd absolutely love to give this (the most epic foe I've ever defeated) my respect.
Reply
:iconreinhold-hoffmann:
Reinhold-Hoffmann Featured By Owner Dec 1, 2012
the 2nd and 3rd entries are totally up to you which means stallord can be the 2nd one of course, but you can't claim a character before your first entry is submitted and accepted of course

I bet you could do a great ghirahim in his 3rd form already, but that one was drawn already, the rule is that you claim a character which was not yet drawn while the 2nd and 3rd entries can be already claimed and drawn characters

Here is a gallery with all the Zelda SS enemies [link]

Ahem-I'm curious. With the release of the Wii-U came the release of NintendoLand. Which has a "Zelda Battle Quest" game within it. Could we possibly paint one of the villains from this game? There was one in particular that caught my eye. And if it is possible, I'd love to claim it.
