Marth and Zelda - Embrace by Spelarminlind Marth and Zelda - Embrace by Spelarminlind
Marth and Zelda have quite a few things in common. I would not say that this is reason enough to support them as a couple, but somehow it just said click for me (my first non-canon couple). Drawing them is quite a joy as they are both very beautiful (even by manga/anime protagonist standard). In spite of how lovely they are to look at, I found this drawing to be a pain to color. I must have spent +1 hour on each one of those flowers :faint:

I do not even want to begin counting the mistakes (no light source, metallic hair, Zelda’s ear messed up by the top order of the layers, wrong positioning of the buckles on Marth’s gauntlets, crooked diadem, crooked pauldrons on Zelda, flat decorations on Marth’s armor near the light areas, Marth’s nose, etc.). Enough is enough. There are still things I doubt I will ever be able to do again. Marth’s cape, how did that happen?

Never mind, hugs are underestimated. How romantic to melt into a warm embrace and feel close both in body and soul.

The sketch can be found here

i think this amazing. i love how you shaded Zelda's hair, her armor, and the flowers. In fact, I'm gonna use this a cover picture for my ZeldaxMarth fanfiction. Do you mind? XD feel free to check it out. It's ZeldaxMarth: Poison Kiss, then Burning Passion.

Just copy the URL in the address bar and paste it into your post. But you do not have to trouble yourself. If the stories are in your gallery I will find them.

just... wow, the hair and the clothes look so realistic, the background is amazing, you captured the emotion perfectly, and I love this pairing.

Thank you. I think there is a certain mood between these two characters that make them feel like they would fit together. Well, I am not able to explain what kind of feeling so I drew this instead. It is always nice meeting other people who like this pairing as I find us to be quite few.

Your comment made me very, very happy :D Thank you.

Yay for Marth! I have a new found love for him ever since I borrowed Super Smash Brothers Brawl from my friend! =D <3

Anyways, awesome work! I agree, hugs are very underestimated. I think they are so romantic! I like this picture a lot. The work you did on the flowers really shows.

Oh, yes, he moves so gracefully it is difficult not to be awed, even though he is just a character in a game. His history is quite engrossing as well.

Thank you so, so much for your kind comment. I cannot say how much I appreciate it.

Indeed, and not to mention quickly. I like Ike a ton too, so there's a big speed contrast between the two X3

You're welcome :heart:

I find it hard to switch between characters that differ too much in speed and weight while still being equally good when playing them. I have an easier time with speedy characters so I prefer Marth.

Although, I think my image of Ike was somewhat shattered by my cousins screaming "PIZZA!" every time he used his "Aether" attack.

Well I don't find it too hard but I probably choose Ike more than Marth. I like Marth, but I play better as Ike, plus I just like to use his "Prepare Yourself!" taunt. X3

Aww, Ike still has my respect, well sorta... :giggle:
