3d Links Awakening Character updates 9, 10, 11, and 12

Sorry for the delay, I have actually had these models ready to post for a few days but I have been busy visiting with family and friends.

Our first character up is the Like-Like, an enemy that want's nothing more then to eat your shields, forcing you to buy new ones.

Next up is the Goponga Cheep-Cheep, found in the Goponga swamp and in caves. I am just guessing for the name here, since I cant find them in any enemy list, and they look different from other Cheep-Cheeps in the game, they act differently too.

Normal Cheep-Cheeps are only found in side scrolling underwater segments and swim back and forth, Goponga Cheep-Cheeps are found in overhead areas and swim under the water with their fins sticking out (sorta like sharks) and leap out of the water to attack you.

Next is the Goponga Flower, I don't know if they are named for the swamp or if its the other way around. These flowers are annoyingly hard to kill, if I remember correctly only Bow-Wow and the flame rod can kill them.

Finally we have the Giant Goponga Flower, they are four times the size of a normal Goponga Flower, and have the ability to spit fire balls, or poison, or something roundish at you, they are just as hard to kill as normal Goponga Flowers.

The aforementioned Family visiting cut into my time working on Helix a lot more then I would have liked, sadly I believe it will be a no-show for this year.

I also have a really Awesome-Update™ coming Soon™, I may even put up a forum on the day of the Awesome-Update™ so that you may discuss the Awesome-Update™ amongst your selves.

It will be Awesome™

3d Links Awakening Major update 4

Alright, our fourth Major Update. Fun fun.

Here is the Goponga Swamp, Location of the second Dungeon, the Bottle Grotto.
I believe this is the smallest area I've done so far, oh well, it was fun

As promised, here is a render of the completed portions of the Island, as well as all remaining areas. Be careful, it weighs in at 4000x3000 in size, plenty of detail for you.

The next few updates should be of enemies from the swamp, as well as a few more items.

3d Links Awakening Quadrant update 51

Quadrant D4 is complete

Again, fairly empty, so a shot of the entirety of the swamp proper.

Only two quadrants left

3d Links Awakening Quadrant update 50

Fifty quadrant updates, and we are STILL only on the West side of the island.

Oh well, quadrant D3 is complete

There was so little in that quadrant that I decided to leave the other two quads in the picture

3d Links Awakening Quadrant update 49

Quadrant C3 is complete

Roots and water, so much to see here.

Getting close to the completion of the swamps and the next major update. You had better enjoy that one since, if I remember correctly, the next area up is MASSIVE, meaning no new major updates for a while (and by proxy, no new character, item, scenery, etc updates as well)

I think I will be ready to shed some more light on Project Helix around Christmas, no promises tho.

3d Links Awakening Quadrant update 48

Quadrant C4 is complete

I think I am pretty happy with how the roots turned out.


Just in time for the Holidays it's the MithosK store!

Just kidding, I have had it since long before I started this project, but you might find something enjoyable enough to buy there, just shirts and a thong right now. Nothing mentioning the Zelda Project yet, as I would like to stay under the Nintendo Copyright Radar for as long as possible, maybe next year.

Anyway, the store is located at if you are interested.

3d Links Awakening Quadrant update 47

Quadrant A3 complete

Time to move into the Swamp Proper, once it is complete I will post a top down render/wall paper showing the estimated final size of the island, including all completed parts. It will be big enough that you can zoom in and see each quadrant in detail.
