Ganondorf Shoes - sneaky peek by tavington Ganondorf Shoes - sneaky peek by tavington
For those who follow me on my Facebook page, you will probably know that I am painting myself a pair of Ganondorf shoes for the Zelda 25th Anniversary Symphony Concert which is in October.

I'll be bringing these bad babies along and wearing them on the night!

My friends :iconubermidget: and :iconadder-adz: will be sporting Wisdom and Courage T Shirts and shoes, respectively...I am THE POWAAAH!


This is, at the moment ONE SHOE.

It's not even finished yet. Painting shoes takes so looong :___; *cries*

I'm just using regular acrylic paints for this. I've never done a project like this before!

For more Facebook updates, friend me on: facebook.com/tavington

Thanks for looking!

You're welcome! Seing three different Ganondorf on the same shoes,that's amazing! _

Hehe, they did take me a while <__, I have 4 panels on each shoe, and they took at least 2 hours each to complete.
I've only wore them for the Zelda concert and once more before that as a trial run, so only a couple of times.
I am a UK size 7 :P

OH.MY.GOD! The paintings are amazing, I think you just upped the value of this shoe by googleplex (=infinite amount) pounds! Ganondorf looks delightfully evil in the first painting (so much detail!), terrifying in the second one (brave little Link at the bottom with Navi :iconyayzplz:) , and thoughtful in the third! (Was that the part in Windwaker when he said why he wanted to rule Hyrule?) Much love for these shoes Donna, I can't wait to see both completed in October! :D

I will try my best to add protection to them before I wear them. I don't really want to use varnish, but I have waterproof spray and dubbin I can use instead, so I can put a waxy coat over it and soften the shoe so the paint won't crack (hopefully!)

Painting shoes does take long. I usually end up with a messed up back after I get finished. But the end product is always worth the hassle. These look great btw. ;)
