So this year it’s actually happening. I’m going to have a artist booth at Comic Con Niagara Falls!
I’m also hoping to hit up a few more conventions this summer as well. I’ll keep you posted as to which ones.
Anyway, I thought I would celebrate the occasion with an appropriately geeky piece. This one features Link fighting the Infernal Dinosaur (Seriously I wish I had a title like that!) King Dodongo.
It’s a funny thing about video games in that when you play you think “Ok it’s a slow-moving boss with a rolling attack and I kill it by throwing bombs into it’s mouth.” Now if I was to be put into that situation in real life, my reaction might be something more akin to…. this.
I like to try and visualize them the way they would look if you were actually staring down the infernal gullet of a dragon as big as your house.
Fun fact: The first time my brother and I played this boss, we couldn’t figure out how to beat it at first and we took some hefty damage. After figuring it out, we finally beat him with exactly one quarter heart left (for those who haven’t played Zelda before that means one hit and we’re dead).
For the rest of the game, whenever we beat a boss with a quarter heart left, we referred to it as “Dodongo’s luck”.
