-- Zelda Skyward Sword : The Imprisoned Fight -- by Kurama-chan -- Zelda Skyward Sword : The Imprisoned Fight -- by Kurama-chan
For the :icongame-art-hq: tribute : Link's Blacklist
I'm very sorry for the delay
I've chosen to draw The Imprisoned not because I like him, but actually because I hate him. He was one of the worst bosses I fought, and I imagine he was also the nightmare of many Zelda players too.
So drawing him was a challenge to myself. Hope it can be enjoyed!

Characters from The Legend of Zelda : Skyward Sword game by Nintendo

I liked it a lot, actually, and I found it interesting how it wasn't just a boss, but a character on its(his?) own, and you could fight it with different methods each time and even during the same fight.  ^^

ah, it feels like i am playing the game once again. I love this by the way. The first time I faced the imprisoned the second time *barely* I kicked his butt and sealed him away again. The second time I faced him, it was so quick. Yes, second time I played Skyward Sword. Well done with the art work. I am a HUGE Zelda fan by the way lol.

I always skip the second fight.  That's the one I hate the most because it is tolerable the first time and easy the third (if I can aim when you  have to launch Link onto his face).  It's the second fight that always gave me problems and I was so ridiculously happy that I could skip it.  Your art is amazing, though I admit to a slight sinking feeling in my stomach when I saw The Imprisoned.

I always dreaded going back to the Sealed Grounds because of this boss. It was really repetitive and if you made one mistake you would most likely lose.
Great art though. It must have take forever to make all of its scales.

Indeed. It is the thing that made me stop last time and the reason I haven't finished the game yet.. Hitting it with the thing I also don't like about the game, the sailcloth (because I can't steer the thing and have to do so at a very decisive moment -_-')  

Nice picture of such a frustrating moment in an overall good game.

Oh, yes, I'll be honest, at the moment I fought with it and lost for the first time, I became scared of fighting it again and I spent some days without facing it again. But you'll feel great at the time you can win the fight! I hope you can get the game and try again!

Thanks!

I KNOW RIGHT! D:
*Thought process* 

#1: First time seeing it, annoying but hey every zelda game has to have 1 boss that's annoying, and to be honest its kinda neat 

#2: Okay why is he faster, why can i not get on his head, and why does his arms make this process longer than it needs be? In fact. WHY ARE WE HERE AGAIN!?

#3: IT WAS 2 MINUTES AGO SINCE I LAST SAW YOU! God its going to be the 2nd fight over again but faster -n-#. He is now flying . . . this thing has gotten a plus for making me use the catapult :3. Well that was . . . that was easy ._______.   .... theres gonna be a 4th one isnt there? ;A;

You're right, that guy was horrible XC the final boss demise was easier than than his "weaker" form imprisoned in my opinion XD

I think repeating the same boss over and over didn't help to become more challenging?

I think it helped it become more tedious and infuriating. More challenging? Well a few of the last times were pretty hard but they were no less interesting than the first times
