Link vs. Bongo Bongo by Txikimorin Link vs. Bongo Bongo by Txikimorin
This is the battle between Link and Bongo Bongo: Phantom Shadow Beast, from The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time.

Link is using the Fairy Bow; the Hover Boots, the item of this dungeon: Shadow Temple, which allows Link to walk in the air some steps, and the Lens of Truth, which allows Link to see invisible things, in this case we see the part of Bongo Bongo's body that Link sees though the lens.

As allways I've tried to be as loyal as posible to the design of the original game from Nintendo 64 rather than using oficial ilustration as reference.

So gorgeous and detailed! I have wondered how Link would be able to use the Lens of Truth and shoot arrows at the same time, but now it seems that is the answer. :D (Big Grin) 

(How much I hate this boss... (- . -'))

Well it takes time but I guess it's all about trying and trying and trying...
By the way I´ve been listening to some of your songs, and it is awesome to have a place to watch and hear them because me and my brother both play instruments and love Zelda's music! This scores look great because they are not like a  billion voices and I can hear and read them without even downloading them or using Finale. So thanks for the comment and thanks for the music

Drawing and art like that just isn't my thing. Clearly you're amazing at it! I love the Morpha one too!!! I pretty much have devoted all my arrangements to nintendo XD kondo is my IDOL. I'm so glad you like my music! There are so many scores people do with just too many instruments... I guess it's just about getting the balance. Thank you for the feedback ♥♥♥

This has got to be one of the most kickass pieces of art I've ever seen.


Seriously, the attention to detail, the blur of Bongo Bongo's other hand, the Lens of Truth attached to his bow, the halo showing what you would see through it, Navi acting as his guide in the dark for God's sake! It all comes together to make something both intimidating and memorable.

You know, it was implied though not proven that Bongo-Bongo was originally a Shiekah who created the Lens of Truth and the Mask of Truth, but he went mad and killed several people. As punishment, his hands and head were chopped off. In the place where his house stood, the Kakariko Well was built and the Shiekah sealed his dismembered body and his crazed soul in the well. Impa was probably a child when that happened.

Txikimorin Featured By Owner Oct 31, 2013
I heard that, but i prefer the theory that says that the well was there before him, and that the torture chamber with blood on the floor was where he was mutilated. After all the sheikahs has been living in kakariko before it was built, working for the royal family as some kind of "medium ninjas" thats why the royal graveyard is in kakriko instead of being in the castle town. But yeah, I love that theory of the sheikah becoming bongo bongo.

In theory it may say that Bongo Bongo betrayed the laws of a Sheikah. Got to love see positive theory's of Zelda games. Like archeologist discover something.

Freaking epic. I love the composition of the peace, the insinuation of depth due to the fuzziness of the hand in the foreground, the lighting coming from the eye and the boots illuminating what's around it, the anatomy shown in both Link and Bongo Bongo, plus the effect of the circle of vision afforded by the Lens of Truth, this is a beautiful piece of art~!

Bongo Bongo's top finger's like: "You remind me of the guy I squished last. In other words, YOU'RE DEAD!!! I like how Link isn't afraid of a giant monster. Then again, he's faced other giant monsters in older games.
