Inspired by my old artwork, but also inspired by my recent playthrough of Twilight Princess again. I like to look in-depth into the games sometimes and something occurred to me. Link never really touches the Fused Shadows (or the Mirror Shards) as Midna holds onto them for him, but we know that they corrupt anyone who does make some sort of contact with them (as the Light God of Lanayru explained). So I thought "What if Link did touch these without any help from the Twili?" Of course, Link does have divine powers from the gods (which is why he turns into a wolf instead of a spirit or monster like everyone else), but at the same time, we see that Midna grows into a monstrous beast when she wears the Fused Shadows. So… something *must* happen to Link if he was exposed to the dark magic, which is what inspired me to create this design of mine.

This is pretty much a mixture of the Twili monsters and a hint of Fierce Deity Link~

Coming to so of your older works and I'm blown away. The quality has gotten better but this is still breath taking, would have liked to have seen a "Fused Shadow Wolf Link", though beggars can't be choosers. Love all your work regardless.

Midna doesn't have any divine powers. Link would simply turn into a wolf if he touched them.

Holy crap this is epic!!! I can see this happening where after TP Link, in his desperation to reunite with Minda, gathered and repaired the fragments of the Fused Shadow and used it's dark power to access the Twilight Realm.

With his newfound power augmented by the Triforce, Link now commands vast legions of Shadow Beasts and proceeds to lay siege to the Palace of Twilight.

Neither Hylian nor Twili, man nor beast. The Hero of Twilight is now something....more.

Oh wow, this is amazing! It's such a creative design and it stays true to the dark shadow beasts of the Twilight Realm while staying somewhat Hylian.

So dark and gorgeous in a way that will probably kill me. We have seen what it has done to his body, but what of his mind?

It's like, all of Link's purity has been taken control of by some malevolent force, somewhat against his will, and his (most likely) chaotic actions are just from those two powers battling it out. So basically, epic.

That looks as if Link became a pasta and then decided to attack BEN for giving the other dark game a bit of a reputation and making people forget about his game.
