"Out for a leisurely stroll, your Highness? Tsk, tsk, tsk! You know that’s not allowed!"

Well done. You just lost the tutorial level.

Guess who's replaying Spirit Tracks? :dance:

And like Tubba Blubba, I kind of drew this because my previous drawings of this guy fill me with horror and shame.

My favorite Zelda character (well, second fave. My main favorite is the half-mummy man locked in a closet that's planning to eat his daughter) is an evil demon leprechaun with a high pitched voice. I'm the worst fan in the world.

After drawing that one picture with Chancellor Candy, I had to draw Chancellor Cole from The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks for real, especially since nintendo-fc is having a contest where I'm considering entering with a Malladus!Puppet Zelda picture. I find it funny that basically my Zelda fanart is basically just drawings of this one guy when most of the fandom doesn't even really like said guy. I blame the fact that I like short angry men with sharp teeth.

I always found it kind of weird that Batreaux in Skyward Sword had wings but Chancellor Cole didn’t even though they’re both the same species. I mean, I guess you could say it's like the Zoras in that there's multiple branches of the same race, but still. What became a speculation doodle (what if Cole’s demon form had wings and sharp claws like Batreaux instead of just the horns?) went a little too far and became sort of like an alternate version of the opening cutscene, complete with beefed up demonic reveal. Purple smoke and hats flying off just seemed a bit...anti-climactic, especially considering how "subtle" Chancellor Cole was being with his evilness. If you're gonna be evil, go all out.

My theory is that Cole just prefers to levitate and teleport because teleportation doesn't shred 250 rupee coats the way wings do. Well done, Cole. You just blew a hole in a perfectly good outfit.

I also drew him with a cane because why not.

Well, this was fun to shade. I tried a new shading technique where I put my lights on a separate layer and do that first instead of shading with the darker shades first and then putting the lights on after that. I really liked how it came out.

Regardless, I'll probably revisit this tomorrow and fix any problem areas I see with the shading.

Love it!  The wings really add to Cole's intimidation factor. Wish he looked like this in the game.

Yeah, tell me about it. The wings certainly do make him look more of a threat.
Although the little wingless leprechaun look has its own charm if only because of the crazy faces he makes. =D

Hi Chancellor :)

Ooo awesome. I was going to say I didnt remember him having wings, but then I read the description. Didn't remember him having a tail either, Batreaux didn't have that. I guess the reason why demons in SS look so different from demons in ST is that they're so far apart in time. Like, millions of years. If zoras can become a completely different species in hundreds of years, demons can lose their wings in millions of years. I do like this better than how the game did it though.

Ha ha, weeeell, one of the reasons I gave Chancellor Cole a tail is because I always saw his demon form as having one after the Malladus Cole monster at the end of the game sported one. I know it's not canon, but I think it looks cool and the picture looked kind of empty without it. I was always kind of disappointed in that, in the game, nothing's different about Cole between his human form and his demon form other than one has hats and beady eyes and the other doesn't. So I drew a picture of him with wings as a test and it really worked out favorably. =D It was fun just to experiment with a fanon idea.

And now that you mention it, that is a very good explanation as to why demons wouldn't really have wings anymore since Skyward Sword and Spirit Tracks sit on opposite ends on the timeline. Another explanation I like is that Cole is only a half-demon and has human blood in him too, if only because of how human he looks in demon form, especially compared to characters like Batreaux and Demise.

Demon/human? You parent demon and the other human? o_o Wow. The only way I can think that would be possible is if Batreaux fell for one of the Skyloft women after he was transformed into a human, had a family with her, and somewhere down the line, the demon genes showed up again. Maybe Cole has Batreaux as a distant ancestor?

And I see. I havent beaten ST yet, but I'm close.
Turquoisephoenix Featured By Owner Jul 12, 2013  Student Filmographer
I like to think that Cole is related to Batreaux, if only because it'd be heavily ironic that the incredibly kind, friendly demon who doesn't want to hurt anybody is a distant ancestor to a demon that tried to resurrect a dead demon god and destroy all of Hyrule. I'm sure Batreaux is proud of his great great great great (x100) grandson.
It's also supported by the fact that both of them have red hair and mustaches.

Nah, I was thinking more along the lines that there were pure demons all throughout Hyrule's history until multiple wars including the demon war in New Hyrule pretty much wiped them all out and that Cole himself was born during the war that sealed off Malladus.

Course that also works if Chancellor Cole is full demon. I'm open to multiple ideas involving him.
