I love the contrast of colors here. Her pure light and his tainted darkness....It makes quite a sad story but I still love it. :3

I'm starting to ship this so hard.

This is beautiful.  I stared at it for at least ten minutes before adding it to my favorites, and this is the third time I've gone in search of it.  Utterly beautiful.
Ponthion Featured By Owner Oct 23, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Thank you so much!

OTP feels, I have them.

I love how they're both subtly in the darkness; it suggest so many things, like how they're using the last bits of time to -be- with each other.

Can I please express.

How freaking beautiful this is.

I think you captured emotion so well and evoked in me something I hadn't felt in a while.

Thank you.

Oh, wow ... das ist so wunderschön. Der Kontrast ist dir großartig gelungen - und obwohl es zwei solche Gegensätze sind, ist die Ruhe... der innere Frieden da auf dem Bild zu spüren.

Sooo schön! Q_Q

This is so gorgeous. DX IT'S MAKING ME SAD, THIS PAIRING ALWAYS MAKES ME SAD. But the art is beautiful!!
Maochiato Featured By Owner Sep 25, 2012
Ich liebe dieses Bild! Es hat so viel Gefühl und ich könnte stumpf drauf losheulen, wenn ich es länger betrachte...
Besonders hat es mir die Coloration angetan, dieser Kontrast und... T\\^\\T
Ich bin definitiv verliebt und Fan von diesem 'Pair' geworden. Q\\\U\\\\\Q
Ponthion Featured By Owner Sep 26, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
sadghbajdg aaaww Mao ;__; :heart::heart: Ich freu mich so, wenn Leute, die eigentlich mit den Charakteren nicht viel anfangen können (denk ich mal..?), das Pair mögen buhuhu
LatteDah Featured By Owner Aug 22, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
dear god this is beautiful... ;-;

I love this ship. LOVE IT. I definitely need to draw something with it, and I have no idea why I haven't yet because it is perfect in its own dysfunctional way. :heart:
Ponthion Featured By Owner Aug 22, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
waaaah you have no idea how utterly happy it makes me to read this ;__; oh god yes please, draw something for them. I will cry till the end of time
Queaky Featured By Owner Aug 19, 2012

I am mostly a Zelink kinda person just to throw that out there and I've always though Ganon and Zelda would have an interesting relationship if that just sat down and actually talked.
(Ganon is awesome and misunderstood. He is no pig. XP)

Anyways, lemme just continue to foam at the mouth about how much I love this picture. :P Insta-fave.
Ponthion Featured By Owner Aug 22, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
thanks so much :heart:
TaliaLunari Featured By Owner Aug 7, 2012
Oh that is so cute <3 I love ZelGan so much they are my fav pairing! Really beautiful picture I love it!
Ponthion Featured By Owner Aug 7, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
you have no idea how happy it makes me to hear that! ;_; Everytime I hear that someone else ships it I have a bit more confidence to draw them and actually upload something of that pairing
warningyou Featured By Owner Jul 7, 2012  Student Digital Artist
The contrast between them is breathtaking. I can feel the light touch of Zelda in Ganon's inmortal skin. very very beautiful
kiwihugs Featured By Owner Jun 27, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Wow, beautiful AND thought-provoking! I love deviations like this. It's so controversial! XD LOL about creeping people out!
pudgybat Featured By Owner Apr 20, 2012  Student
... Huh.
I actually never considered this pairing in thought at all.
But now that I see this... Wow, that's actually kind of bittersweet. :c
vya Featured By Owner Apr 20, 2012
That´s great!<3
Sorelliena Featured By Owner Apr 17, 2012   Digital Artist
This looks so beautiful.

I really, really want to read the rest of that snippet, pretty please? D: I love the way you did Ganondorf's expression and the blood dripping down his face... and the contrast... oh gosh and Zelda's clothing...

So pretty ;_; don't be ashamed! this is lovely 8D
Ponthion Featured By Owner May 8, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Maybe someday I'll draw some more from this scene, and then I'll put something from that snippet in the description. Maybe. I've I feel brave enough then. xD
And thanks a lot :heart::heart:

This is ridiculously beautiful. The composition and the details on Ganon's face and cloak and everything is just wonderful!
feverwreck Featured By Owner Mar 24, 2012
SO BEAUTIFUL D:!! I love the contrast in this piece, and don't be embarrassed about the quote it sounds wonderful!
Ponthion Featured By Owner Mar 24, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
aaaah thank you so much ;u; That makes me feel less weird about it haha :heart:
MandolynDragon Featured By Owner Mar 13, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
It reminds me of the old-time tale of Beauty and the Beast (not the Disney one :no:)! c:

Ooh, love the contrast of light and dark here~
kiesu Featured By Owner Mar 12, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I still love this so much <3
Ponthion Featured By Owner Mar 12, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
ooh thank you, you don't know how happy it makes me to read that ; u; ~:heart:
kiesu Featured By Owner Mar 13, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Can I haz teh story please and drool all over it yes?
Ponthion Featured By Owner Mar 13, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Ooh there's no real story behind it, just a sort of ficlet, which is super cheesy and embarrassing and I laugh at myself about it. Though I'd like to think about a whole story that goes with this sometime
kiesu Featured By Owner Mar 13, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I know right, I must work out a little story of my own in my head with every great game or pair I come across with too. I love imagining those so much, I never really write anything down even tho I'd like to, I just like inventing and thinking dumb sweet stuff like that
MACHINE-BIRDY Featured By Owner Mar 10, 2012
Lovely, I absolutely adore this pairing.

CreepyBear Featured By Owner Mar 7, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Uhhh... Interestin pair? beautifully done despite the odd couple.
KittenCrazy Featured By Owner Mar 7, 2012
...that totally explains why link had to keep protecting zelda.
ganon/ganondorf loved zelda.
zelda was nice to him, but she didn't necessarily love him.
ever since, ganon's been scheming to steal zelda's wisdom triangle..
so she could be stupid enough to fall for him.
forseeing this, zelda used her womaly wiles on link,
tricking him into forever devotion to her.
navi knew that zelda was just using him, so navi would always try and get link's attention to tell him this important information. but every time she would say "Hey!" or "Listen!" link would just swat her away..
so easily tricked.
and women.
so intelligent that they're stupid. .o.
........oh wow, just look at my ranting.
sorry. it's really good, by the way.
i really like it.

what the hell
RemaNigia Featured By Owner Feb 11, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I prefer zelink, and I am sorry but it's too late to save whatever there might have been of a ZelGan fangirl in me.
yes, yes it is. If you don't believe me, let me unleash the rabid Zelink fangirl within me.
-O_O AHHHH yeah it's too late.
X) but still, that doesn't mean I can't love this piece of work! In fact, it's one of THE most lovely pieces I have seen for any pairing, so much emotion, feel, and detail, her glowing aura is incredible too. lovely, FAVING!!! :D
CarolynNocturnal Featured By Owner Feb 9, 2012  Student Writer
OMG i love this pairing! This picture is amazing. There's so much emotion and feeling in all of this... dude, and his face, and her eyes....


Everything about this is wonderful :3
