You're Still Their Hero by Red-Lynx You're Still Their Hero by Red-Lynx
"What a soothing melody... My sorrows melting away into the song." ~Darmani

-=-=-

Finally, after a whole day's worth of work, here is my entry into the "Majora's Mask Moments Contest", hosted by :iconfans-of-zelda:. Holy crap. My hands hurt. But I was determined to get this done. The phrase I used for making this image is: "Never Lose Faith"

Even before I was interested in Gorons as much as I am now, the scene where you get the Goron Mask was always my favourite, and one of the most powerful... It was just so heartfelt and emotional, seeing Darmani finally letting go of his fears and regrets while watching his people cheer him on...

Media Used: Copic Sketch markers, airbrush, and white gouche.
Time Taken: About 17 hours from draft sketch to finished product. In the span of about 24 hours.

Link Goron was always my favorite link form (and still be) and Darmani is really the best Goron ever (along with Darunia).

Darmani is my favorite Legend of Zelda:Majora's Mask mask character, I feel bad for him that he isn't with his tribe and most importantly his son.
I love this so much great job!

Absolutely excellent work! I thought this was in my favourites. :[ Odd that it isn't. Bleh. This is just awesome. I think my favourite part is Darmani's hair...
The only criticism I'd give it would be Link's left arm. Other than that, it's incredible.

I had way too much fun drawing and colouring Darmani, especially his hair~ I'm glad you like it! <3

Unfortunately, Link was the only big problem I had with this piece, and I wish I had given myself the time to fine-tune the picture more... I actually hadn't noticed his arm issue until you mentioned it, but I was personally bothered with how poorly I meshed his colours with the rest of the picture. Live and learn, I suppose!

It's easy to see. XD He looks fantastic.

Actually I think Link's colours help bring the piece together and balance it out. :D

Really now? Well it's great to know that it still works out, despite my own judgements on that part of the picture~ ^-^

Pretty cool pic, but one thing that's always bothered me is how the gorons think that Link's goron form is Darmani when they don't really look all that alike. Goron link is clean shaven and bald (at least as far as I've seen) while Darmani has a full beard, side burns, and mountain man hair. not only that, but there's also all the scars Darmani had (although they might be from when he did. I guess that one can slide) and the fact that he looks way more buff than Goron Link. *shrugs* But this is still an awesome scene and an awesome pic.

...You have a good point. I'd never really questioned how different Goron Link looked from Darmani, although he is missing a lot of features like his beard and the arm-length tattoos on his one arm. That and well, the big pointed hat. I'm surprised no one pointed that oddity out at all, now that I think about it. xD

Perhaps he looks just enough like Darmani to the Gorons to convince them? Even without the beard and extra tattoos, Goron Link is still wearing the same beads and gloves, and he actually does have those rockin' sideburns.

(Speaking of, I do recall that one Goron in the village does point out that your sideburns are what made him recognize you as Darmani! Guess that sort of hair-growing power is something not common in anyone but Goron heroes. *laugh*)
