A Duel Lost (Link vs. Marth) by AmazingArtistYellow A Duel Lost (Link vs. Marth) by AmazingArtistYellow

THANKS FOR MAKING ME FEEL BAD YOU GUYS.....I DON'T WORK AT A STUDIO, NOR DO I HAVE ANY EXPERIENCE WITH ACTION SCENES. I ALSO HAVE MY OWN OPINIONS REGARDING THE CHARACTERS OF SMASH BROS (because if you can have Jigglypuff beat up Ganondorf, then you really can't go wrong with anyone), BUT THANKS ANYWAY.....TT__TT

:iconmarthplz::iconsaysplz: I do believe you've underestimated me, knight.

This is my first attempt at making an "action" scene (Even though all the action that takes place is just 20% of the GIF...:P).
I do hope it's decent, CUZ I KNOW IT AIN'T THAT GREAT!!! DX

I like to imagine Marth as the more "skilled" and strategic sword fighter when compared to Link, who would be the more impulsive and erratic/unpredictable fighter with no real fighting pattern.
I still do believe they're both equally matched swordmen.
Besides, Link already won his battle against Pit in the Palutena trailer. Let's give another awesome character a chance for victory, shall we? :icondontunderstandplz:

Also, Marth, WHY IS YOUR HAIR BLUE?!?! (Yes, I'm only questioning Marth and totally ignoring Ike. XD)

Programs used: Photoshop CS5 and Sony Movie Studio 12
Frames: Lol, 306 frames. :lol:
Time: 18 hours

Dont feel bad for portraying your thoughts on a battle, literally anything can happen during a duel. I like the animation, it's very good, keep up the good work!

I don't mean to nitpick, but I'd like to point out that Link has almost never been disarmed in battle. When he has, it is usually due to extenuating circumstances out of his control. The only instance that comes to mind is during the early Ghirahim battles, wherein Ghirahim is able to enchant his hand with dark magic to steal Link's unawakened (and therefore fairly weakened) sword away from him. Even then, it rarely ever happens. You'd have to be rather reckless or still not be used to the controls (if not for some other reason) for that to happen. There are times when Link has been shown to make tactical errors, but they are often caused by unforeseen developments. I'd also like to point out that Link's proven maximum capabilities somewhat exceed that of Marth's maximum in some areas. There is also the the fact that if Marth had actually managed to slash Link's sword out of his grasp from the angle shown, the Master Sword would have actually been launched to the side, and Marth's Falchion would have cut into Link's arm. Considering the fact that Marth is shown moving forward and leaning upwards while performing a close range horizontal one handed swing with a long sword, the most likely scenario would be that the Falchion was embedded into Link's arm, the Master Sword would have clattered to the side, (based likely positions at the time of Marth's strike) bounced off blade first of Link's shield and ended up awkwardly askew between Link's feet. Furthermore, the awkward angle, momentum, and and force/acceleration placed into the arc of the swing would have likely sprained or even broken Marth's wrist. There is a reason you are supposed to wield a long sword or great sword with TWO hands. Marth would lose his grip on the Falchion. This would mean that the Fachion, though still embedded in Link's arm, would be loosened, eventually falling out of Link's arm. Now, this would all happen within a likely range of 20-30 seconds. If you also consider their stances and these events, Link would then proceed to trip over the Master Sword, likely also damaging his legs, and Marth would also likely tumble forward from shock and momentum, landing on Link and both swords. I.E.- They would both die (but only Marth is subject to permadeath).

All that aside, you did a very good job with the gif. The animation is smooth, appealing, and well done. I would personally prefer a more realistic portrayal of the fight scene, but considering the fact that you probably didn't think of the exact angles and all that real-world nonsense, this still calls for a high grade. If I were an art teacher, I'd give you an A+.  Since I'm just some guy on the internet, I'll instead rate this 10/10. Great job. Keep on just like this.
