Volvagia by Xenonia Volvagia by Xenonia
This is the painting I was asking about in my latest poll: [link] So as you can see, not many expected that I was drawing Volvagia.

This is not what I usually draw. It is my first painting of something dragon-ish, so it's not that good, but I really enjoyed drawing it! It was really fun!:) And that's what matters to me in these stressful times. ^^ Hope some of you like it anyway!

Volvagia is the boss of the Fire Temple in The Legend of Zelda - Ocarina of Time (which is the best game ever, btw.) I've always liked Volvagia!

Done in Adobe Photoshop CS2 with a Wacom Intuos4 medium tablet.

The fire behind the dragon not actually lighting the tail doesnt make sense (same for the backlight on the front, it's there but should probably a bit more present on parts) but besides that it looks good.

Simply sweet. Volvagia's design is really good, and he looks so awesome in fan art. Presumably because he's a badass lava dragon who eats giant rock peoples, and that guarantees awesome points.

Beautifull Art piece this is =D

That although Ganons true form is harder, Volvagia is pretty hard to beat.

Guess if i was faced with a fire dragon i would use a hammer to beat it too ;P

Although there are zelda games with greater graphics today, Ocarina of Time stands out as one of my favorite zelda games. =D

Every Zelda game has a beauty of its release :)
