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.

Bongo Bongo is honestly my most favorite boss in all of the LoZ games I've played. It was the most times I died. Second place is the boss from the temple of courage in PH

Wow. This, is the definition of what epicness is. The perspective is crazy, you capture the mouvement so well and the athmospher is so right. And oh, the details, Lens of truth with the bow, clever.

WHAT IS IT WITH NINTENDO AND GIANT HANDS THAT INSPIRE SO MUCH NOPE???

We have Bongo Bongo, Dead Hand, Wall Master (whom I believe is Master Hand with his GLOVE OFF)...

This is why I love Zelda fan artists, they create some of the highest caliber fanart I have seen in most any series.

Kill it with fire, Link...

The Hover Boots...huh. Never would have thought of that. I always do the Desert Colossus after the Shadow Temple. Makes sense. Also might explain why I have such a hard time with him...

At any rate, the entire "battle collection" is quite impressive. Definitely a lot of attention devoted to each one, which I can really appreciate. Great work.

I encourage you to try it! It really makes it easier when fighting Bongo Bongo, it helps a lot when he plays the drumms as they keep you in the air instead of making you bounce once and again.

Thanks for the kind words, it's been some time since the last one, but I think there will be another one in less than two months, I'm finally getting time for myself after years and this collection needs to be finished before it gets old!

Great artwork, I finally beat Bongo Bongo with arrows, lens of truth and Biggoron's sword! That was the worst boss since Volvagia (the Dragon in fire temple and it basically the rubbish boss by just flying around...) I'm now in Spirit temple at the moment.... :D XD

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 ♥♥♥
