I painted this last year in celebration of the 10th anniversary of one of the greatest games ever, Ocarina of Time, which was on November 23rd.

It depicts the dragon Volvagia, who is also the boss of the Fire Temple, devouring Gorons within the crater of Death Mountain many years before the game takes place. The dragon used to be a feared enemy and predator of the peaceful rock people, until a hero of the Gorons defeated him with the Megaton Hammer (here depicted standing defiantly in the background). Darunia, the Goron chieftain during the events of Ocarina of Time, is descended from this nameless hero. Volvagia is later resurrected by Ganondorf with the intention to feed him delicious Gorons as a warning to the other races of Hyrule not to oppose him.

In celebration of the anniversary I wanted to draw a scene not from the game itself but from its universe and history, depicting an event integral to the story but never illustrated or described in detail. I always find game fanart more interesting that way - a better exercise in creativity and imagination, I think.
