VsDemise by R-SRaven VsDemise by R-SRaven
I wanted to render this a bit more, but work is taking all my time- So I decided to post it anyway.


SPOILERS!!11!!?? ( but it's been more than a year since game's release!!)


Don't know what to think of Demise, the lack of backstory and origin other than: I'm a bad guy, deal with it gwahahaha! and his relationship with Ganondorf is what takes me off...

Maybe if they had explained more the conflict between Hylia and him and the previous war in SS, but meh. It kinds of destroy everything they've built up with Ganondorf so far. And that lead to a bigger problem with it, IMO Ocarina of Time should' ve been first in the series, for various reasons (and good ones I think) I should explain later.

I know Mangas are not canon, but the manga that comes with Hyrule Historia should've been included as a cinematic, or flashback or something. It almost makes sense after reading it.

Still, it is pretty badass, cool design, first time I saw him I was like: oh, sh"t! ,so I tried to capture that in this quick painting.
I was going to paint the battle second phase with the lightning and stuff, but I decided I wanted to use warm colors for this one.


Hope you like it.

Question. I'm wondering if I can use this.
I have a fb page for Demise, and there is just not enough Demise fan art out there.

Awesome job creating a much darker atmosphere for one of the most epic final boss battles in the Legend of Zelda series.

Your pic is absolutely gorgeous! I love the detail and the mood that this stare down leading to a most epic battle. My only critic is that Link is left handed not right, but other than that there's nothing that I can say bad about it.

Did anyone else thought that his final form looked too much like ganondorf?

Ah, so you're the mastermind behind this work of art. I give this a 100/100, because that wallpaper-like drawing is simply the best description I've ever found on this most awesome battle of all time! Really great work!

I absolutely love this picture, it is the background to my computer. I think it really gives a sense of scale, the impossibility of the fight Link is about to take, and it makes his actions all the more Courageous.

i like Demise and as for him ruining gandorf i disagree ganon was allways born evil now we know why

and the zeldaverse had grown to a point we NEEDED a creator of evil and an origin for monsters and demons

There should be more people who agrees on this, because the Zelda Universe really needed this. Plus, the King of Evil sure as hell is badass as who-knows-what!

Wow!! Amazing work, I love the fiery effects you did around the battle scene, and the darkness of it all! When I played the game, I thought it was pretty weird that you're fighting the main boss, this terrifying King of Demons who has been ominously threatening to escape his prison for weeks, in a peaceful alternate dimension with some pretty water and pretty clouds. This is more like it! XD

Well, good thing he changed the weather, huh? xDD I didn't really think about that at the time, I think. Was a battle full of lots of tension.

The first time I saw Demise, I thought to myself: "Oh...So Oni Akuma and Mukai had an unholy love-child together?"

Demise for me, was possibly the weakest Zelda villain in the series, simply because he seemed like some kind of poorly written excuse as to how Ganondorf came to be.

I still view Skyward Sword as being a stand-alone Zelda game and outside of the official timeline due to all of the plot holes that were created by the game.
-Sigh- Why Shigeru?

You are awesome. I think that it is official that you have the coolest most professional original fanart for this game that I have ever SEEN in my LIFE! I can totally relate this to my own fandom- you have expanded my inspiration by 90%.
OVO
Thank you.

Demise certainly looks intimidating here.  He wasn't too hard in the actual game, although he will still tough enough to finish me off the first time I tried to fight him (I took a severe beating in the previous fights against Ghirahim).
