I came up with an idea for a "what if" timeline in the Zelda series which goes a little like this: what if Ganondorf had been successful during the events of Ocarina of Time? What if he managed to completely take over Hyrule and rule it for centuries? I wanted to show a realistic, renaissance-styled papal Ganondorf. He is inspired by many portraits of popes, Christ, the facial likeness of Peter Cushing and Emperor Palpatine, and the borrowed hairstyle from Gary Oldman as Dracula in Bram Stoker's Dracula. Oh, and I'm sure "Grandpadorf" from Brawl subconsciously inspired me to make a truly old Ganondorf.
