The Forest Shrine is guarded by Farren, the Aspect of the Forest and Creation. The monkeys are her familiars, and are to watch the shrine in her absence. However, the corruption spreading due to Ganondorf's return has changed them into savage beasts, bent on destroying anything that they come across.

Size references are shown, to give a rough idea of how big each creature is compared to someone of Link's height and build. Color charts are also given, mostly for my own benefit. The monkeys are a mix of the models from Majora's Mask and Twilight Princess, while the Wolfos are based loosely on Ocarina of Time, and referenced from the older version of Staff of Power.

I decided halfway through lining this that I would try to give the fur of the Wolfos a sharper edge, to make them a bit more menacing. With the monkeys, I tried to do the opposite. Softer edges and rounder features. Also, monkeys are really hard to draw. I like to torture myself, apparently.

Well Koal, i'll have to agree with you on that. i like the way that Link's personality is shown differently here than most other places, i feel it suits him very well
