Bongo Bongo (Phantom Shadow Beast)

Submitted by BossGengar
This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
Another boss from the N64 Zelda games! (One of my favorites)

Definitely one of the strangest and creepiest model I've created.

This one took a bit of time to finish because of school, but alas, it is finished!

In Zeldapedia, Bongo Bongo is described as a "gargantuan, invisible, and evil spirit, appearing as a one-eyed monster with disembodied hands and a black-purpleish colorization."

Mesh is made in Milkshape 3d by me, used this as an inspiration

Feel free to tell me any problems with the model :)

Anyone who wants to make a BTN/DISBTN for this model would be
appreciated :)


Thanks to @Mister_Haudrauf @Cuore @Alethos and @Kyrbi0 for helping me out big time with this model!

Give me credit if you use this model :)

Don't distribute this model without my permission please!

A solid model that is inspired by Zelda lore. Works in-game and performs well. Good job.

    Yeah but the original thing is sort of a big shadow-y mess.

    then it needs some more shadow around it? :xxd:

    but this texture really doesn't feel wrapped right

    I'm not the best at wrapping, and it does look pretty messy I have to admit.

    I'll try to fix it and put some more shadow particles around the whole body maybe :)

    It's a pretty good representation of bongo bongo, exactly because it's messy, I think.

    a lot of billboarded planes with a shadowy texture ( like demon hunter's ) will give you a nicer effect than a bunch of particles. although using both in moderation might look even neater

    You might want to make the model 'speed up' in decay animation as it seems a bit too long and slow.
