Link vs. Morpha by Txikimorin Link vs. Morpha by Txikimorin
This is the battle between Link and Morpha: Giant Aquatic Amoeba, from The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time.

Link is using the Longshot, the item from the Water Temple; the Zora tunic, which allows him to breath underwater and the Iron boots with which you can walk underwater.

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.

I must say that, in my opinion, this and barinade are the worst bosses of ocarina of time, specially because after beating all the water temple, which was so frustrating due to the way you had to equip the iron boots, this boss was not rewarding enough. However, it has been a big technicall challenge because of the hard perspective and the water effects. Hope you enjoy looking at it as much as i did painting it.

OH GOD...Words cannot describe how much I DESPISED this boss!  Even with the Biggoron Sword, it took forever for me to beat Morpha because I had such a hard time hooking the nucleus, and whenever I tried getting nearer, she'd grab me and throw me across the room.  I've gone up against Morpha twice in the Boss Challenge, and I failed both times.  You are right, she truly is one of the worst bosses out there.  Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.......!!!!!!!!

I like this drawing you did of Morpha and Link, though.  I love how you drew all the water waves---the effects are amazing!  I also like how you drew the folds and wrinkles in Morpha's nucleus and Link's boots.
