Scream for Me :colored: by JereduLevenin Scream for Me :colored: by JereduLevenin
Ghirahim: "...You're not screaming loud enough, boy."

Link: DX


Ghirahim: "You're not going anywhere."

Painted using nothing but The Gimp 2.4.7

So sorry. I believe I'm nearly done with Skyward Sword, and I've been loving it so, so much. I'm on the LAST dungeon! But I had to stop and draw some fanart first. It's just been nagging me.

I was shocked to discover that Ghirahim was actually MORE flamboyant and MORE sadistic than I thought he would be after seeing the E3 footage. And seriously, he's fixated on Link. He's even talking about a red thread of fate binding them and everything, which, if you're familiar with Japanese mythology, means that the perceived homoeroticism isn't even subtext at this point, though I'm quite sure it's entirely one-sided. I think Link would be perfectly content to never see that bastard again.

But yeah, as creepy and hilarious and altogether melodramatic and psychotic as Ghirahim is, I luv him.

The music I've been listening to while working on this: [link] looping continuously. You know what's terrible? I haven't played Spirit Tracks yet. EVEN THOUGH I OWN THE GAME. I wanna beat Phantom Hourglass first, which I've nearly done. I just haven't had a lot of time lately, and now I'm distracted by Skyward Sword. XD But I was so excited when I heard that the team that developed Phantom Hourglass would be working on Skyward Sword, because PH had some of the most creative and innovative puzzles and abilities based on utilizing the DS capabilities to their fullest. So the Wii being the Wii, I knew we were in for a treat when it came to puzzle design and item controls. Took me forever in PH to figure out that when they wanted me to "stamp" a glyph (one one screen) onto my map (on the other screen), I was supposed to close the DS and reopen it. XD

Ghirahim, Link, and The Legend of Zelda Skyward Sword are (c) Nintendo.

Painted as a follow-up to this:

Because I painted that back in June before the game was even out, and all we had was E3 footage. That, and I've learned a thing or two about digital watercoloring since then. That painting is actually very sloppy and I wasn't paying enough attention to details. The new painting is partially to show what I've learned since the first one, but also partially just because I love Skyward Sword, Ghirahim, and his interactions with Link.

I'll critique this since you asked for it, but there's barely anything to say.
I'll just write a couple tiny things I noticed:
1. Link's torso looks like it kind of just disappeared behind the sword a little bit.
2. I also can't really tell what Link's body position is. Is he facing Ghirahim or facing away from him?
3. I think Link should look a bit more limp and weak, considering he looks a little beaten up and has a sword digging into his shoulder, lol xD
4. I agree with Crimson-Graphite, Link's hands look a little awkward, they should be looser, his facial expression maybe as if he is about to faint.
5. Also, I think their facial expression should be a little more obvious, because Link looks fine but I can't really tell what Ghirahim is feeling. It;s all in the eyebrows and the eyes. Focus there to create wonderful and animate facial expression.

Hmm, I probably shouldn't critique this, as you are a far superior artist, and most of these are probably just nitpicks, but here goes. Warning, most of my problems are with Link.

Okay, first, Link's hands: They look, what's the word...awkward. In this position, I imagine they would either be really loose, or incredible tight. The way you drew it, they look king of in-between.  Oh, and just a side note, how is Ghirahim's hand able to go around the wrists like that?

Link's head: The position, looks as though he's trying to get off the sword, but appears (to me) like he's just pushing up against it further. Either that, or he doesn't care...Then his mouth. I he screaming? I was going to assume yes, because of the title, description. But I looks like he's just moaning. This could be easily fixed by the mouth shape, but don't pay attention to that...And I would expect that he would be looking at Ghirahim, mostly in fear.

And the final thing is Link's body position. I don't know. It seems a little off to me.

On the other hand, I adore, how you did Ghirahim. The sadistic look in his eyes, and how he's licking the blood off his lips is top notch.

Anyway, do not feel obliged to take anything of this into consideration. You've probably gotten better since then.

This is epic oh and when girahim said " this was destined to happen by the crimson line of fate" (or something like that) he ment that the thread of fate woud be dyed crimson with Link's blood meaning that no matter how Ghirahim and Link played out their lives no matter what path Link took they HAD to fight at that moment, that it was printed in time and space and that's what he said if you read it correctly so he ment that he was destined to hate link not love him p.s i hate Ghiralink but meh each to their own and I ship sarilink from OOT so meh <3s

Wowwwww... Ghirahim, you naughty thing you! LOL! Yeah, I can't believe how much of a creepy stalker Memetic Molester Ghirahim turned out to be. I mean, seriously, Nintendo? The rating is E10+, and you have a canonical homosexual borderline rapist who likes to lick the side of Link's face? It's like they were CATERING to the perverted side of the female fanbase, lol... the side in which I'm now firmly going to place myself, by the way, because this is AWESOME. Unfortunately I can't be more specific about why I like it without totally creeping myself out, but yes. This is lovely.

The string of fate Ghirahim mentioned actually wasn't referring to the RED string of fate, that was just a coincidence. By what he said, he meant they were destined to fight, and that the string would be soaked crimson with blood.
I ship these guys as much as the next guy, but Ghirahim wasn't exactly talking about homoeroticism.

These with Ghirahim are disturbing... It makes me not want to eat the school's home-made pizza anymore.

NOT! I love these kinds of things! The torture really gets me! I just imaging what it would feel like to be in Link's position and I love it! (sorry... just a little bit masochistic...)

I'm not the only one yay!
I know, it's realy weird how much fun it is to imagine being in pain. I'm not the kind of person people would think would do that. XD

True. But sometimes, I imagine it feels good. Weird, I know. But yay! I have a buddy!
