Subterranian Lava Dragon by TheStealthNinja13 Subterranian Lava Dragon by TheStealthNinja13
This is a Christmas gift I made for my girlfriend's little brother. He loves the Legend of Zelda, and he said his favorite boss was Volvagia, so I tried to capture this encounter from Ocarina of Time!

I HATED VOLVAGIA!!!  That blasted dragon creature knocked me out 3 times when I went up against him!  It was a good thing I killed him shortly after he made me use up my last fairy.  In the Boss Challenge in OoT 3D I failed my first time against him but I beat him in my second attempt.

I hated Volvagia but I love this picture!  I like how all the red and orange tones harmonize together, and how the cool blues of Navi and Volvagia's eyes stand out.  :-)

But Volvagia was awesome, and so badass and charismatic and his story was so sad, in the manga he was originally the dragon pet of the young Link

I guess you're right.

Bongo Bongo is even worse.  I always have trouble against him and he's the only one I can't beat in the boss rematches in OoT 3D.

Excellent image! :D Something about the lines makes it different from most typical things like this... fabulous.

The prettiest boss, but way too annoying. D: But pretty.

Very well done!
I like it when it's less cute, more realistic, well, I don't know if that was your goal, but you certainly did a friggin good job here~

You're welcome!
Oh really? Well... it's not my favorite Zelda game, but I am excited to see other fanarts of yours!
Did you ever play "Links Awakening"?
It's just a GameBoy game but I would love to see some serious boss-drawings out of that... will try that out on my own eventually, heh!

:iconthestealthninja13:

Its not my favorite either, but I figured I'd use it as a starting point for creating some zelda fanart.

Yeah I have played it and that sounds like an awesome idea!

You make me happy, good thing I already watch you so I get notice as soon as you may upload some Links Awakening Boss Fights!
Even the first Boss would be interesting, the giant Worm, wasn't it?
Man I have to play that game again...
