An Art for Doujinshi trade with :iconmazoku85:
If you would like to find out how to get a trade/commission out of me, please check out my DA journal entry or History of Hyrule [link] It's something I've never offered before and I don't know how long I'll be doing it.

Shad and Zelda from Nintendo's Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess. I love it when I can have liberty with costumes XD

This is about 9 hours of quick non-analness on my part. (which is rare, I usually change things to death. And I wish quick for me was quicker than that... *sobs*) That's from start to this finish. I did a small sketch on paper and the rest of it was done in photoshop. I know there are some major flaws (like his sleeve, and her shape by her "belt") but I can spend months... or years... tweaking pieces. The colors were taken directly from the character's model sheets, but were toned down to make them feel more like winter. The background is a copyright free picture that I drew over a bit. The texture is a copyright free image of "grunge"

Also- & this always applies to my web haunts- Please no bitching about pairings. Just because someone likes something doesn't mean you have too and, honestly, no one but yourself would want to hear it. Please show tolerance and respect to others.

A note: I was REALLY dying to draw last night... I still had people I needed to reply to though! Forgive me, I couldn't help it DX I'm about to start getting to everyone- Trust me, I've been looking forward to it! You're all being so wonderful, thank yoU!

Hm, I actually ship Ashei x Shad, and i don't really like this pairing, but this is such an amazing drawing!

I really like your artstyle. :D But I don't know about Shad and Zelda though...^^;
It was a commission, I never even made it as far as Shad in the game, and thanks!

Truth is I really don't like this pairing (I'm all for ZeLink).
But you made them look really cute! :D
I love it!
This is a really beautiful piece, I'm blown away with how lovely the lines are and how pretty both of their faces look.
Oh helloo there my favourite headcannon :D

Knowledge and Wisdom. Quite a good pair.

Shad is so nerdy and cute, specially when he is all hyped with the whole "city in the sky" thing. And he's such a gentlemen.

And Zelda is the wise princess of hyrule.

These two were made for each other :D
