Ancient automaton KOLOKTOS by Joelchan Ancient automaton KOLOKTOS by Joelchan
My entry for the Legend of Zelda-Link's Blacklist tribute from Game Arts-HQ [link]

Koloktos is a boss from Skyward sword wich is guarding the Ancient Cistern dungeon. Otherwise deactived is Ghiraim who brings the massive contraption back to life with his cursed magic one last time in order to defeat Link.

This animated armor has two distinctive forms. The first being the one as I depicted above! After Link with his trusty whip defeats the monster pulling his arms off, the automaton will reunite all his parts and pull himself out of the ground chasing Link with 6 huge swords!
I can tell you that this boss became one of my favourites and made me appreciate the wiimotion plus very much. The moment that I though to sweep the legs of Koloktos my body just reacted like I was using a real sword and it worked!It really worked! It was definitely one of many amazing moments that I had with this game!


As usual I used a regular 2 HB pencil on a white A3 paper, black ink pens for the tracing and coloured it on photoshop.It took me a couple days I guess.

Please enjoy!




The Legend of Zelda and all it's characters are a (c) and TM from Nintendo.

at least we're all thankful that wii-motion remote didn't try to copy the weight of sword and make it more difficult to swing around... I means, it must be weight like a tree log, trying to swing around at same time!

"This “Ancient Automaton" defends the Ancient Cistern and eliminates intruders. The cursed energy supply Ghirahim provided to this contraption has given it power far beyond its conventional limits."
