"Well, you are a soldier, but you can do everything a knight can. Knights are chivalrous, strong, loyal... all you would have to do at the ball is dance."

"I cannot do everything such a knight can."

"But you're all of that. Unless... you can't dance?"

"That is correct."

"Oh, Sir Meta Knight, it's easy. I can teach you."


This scene just... *strokes arms uncomfortably* feels familiar...

I was gonna draw for Meta Knight's birthday (3/23). I totally remembered Meta Knight's birthday. I was drawing before his birthday. And the day of. And the day after. And the day after.

And then I forgot my flash drive when I went to go upload it yesterday during that uploading spree. :P Long story...

But I had no clue what to draw for a while. Except when playing DDR/ITG/Stepmania, some nerds were talking during the song "Pick me up and Tango," something about amiibos, and then "Meta Knight should sing it." Ever since then I've been dying to see Meta Knight in a couple dance.

I think the reason I liked seeing Tiff with Meta Knight is probably some badly disguised self-insert being fulfilled. :P But he's so much of a teacher at the last second, she'd probably be willing to return the favor. She cares about him like an ally and it baffles me how she does not find him incredibly attractive but that's a whole 'nother fanfic. *bricked*

And now I'm so old the non-pun dub names don't really bother me anymore. 'Cause I can't lie, I did like it, and I probably never would've seen it had 4Kids not spliced and diced it up for TV. And Eric Stuart signed a picture of Meta Knight and I can't lie I loved his voice at least miles over the Smash Bros one (the VA is wonderful at his job, it's just, you know, 4Kids Mety was pretty ramble ramble ramble...)

OMG, I love it. I never stop thinking of Metaknight wears the gears from Smash Bros WiiU/3DS dancing together with Tiff.

Yeah his ssb4 attire looks more elegantly designed than his anime outfit, its like he was ready for a special occasion. Tiff however looks unchanged.

If you want it to be pedo, then there's not much I can do about that. :|

If you want it to be a father-daughter-eqsue bonding time, it's that. If you want it to be Tiff turning the teacher-student tables on Meta Knight, then, well, that's what I was going for.

oh neat it's you again haha
After commenting on yours, I figured if you came back I'd confess I think of the two dance pics being sequential events. xD;
I think I caught yours in the club gallery slideshow and started looking for it in the traditional section like "where the f is it" and then "oh whawhawhat this is digital?"

Thanksultra~

I can imagine Fumu dancing with Meta Knight.  I like your drawing, and I enjoy the Hoshi no Kirby anime a lot.

Had to find some excuse to make it happen. Meta Knight has to have one thing he isn't good at. I wonder if he's also bad at cooking...

OH MAN it's so crazy seeing stuff you drew TEN YEARS AGO compared to now. I like this a lot--Meta Knight looks fantastic, and I love the way you drew Fumu/Tiff's hair.

Though I would point out that something about the shape of Tiff's head feels off (I think at the very least, her "nose" should be rounder? It looks sorta flat, and forms a tangent with MK's mask), and the perspective on the background feels weird--the stones that form the floor get smaller closer to the viewer, when it should be the opposite, and the bricks that form the wall feel too small. That could be just me, though.

I will say that the colors look very lovely and unified. None of the colors feel out of place, and it gives the piece a very nice atmosphere.

Overall very nice work! %D

WE ARE SO OLD HEAVEN HELP US wellnotreallyitjustseemsthatway *bricked*

I agree, I still see issues with Tiff's head. She had like Photoshop head surgery probably three times in that it was too big and too far back in the original sketch and finally I was like "screw it, I'll hide what I can with color." xD; The bricks were sssort of an experiment that I could've used a reference on or at least tried perspective lines, but I ignored both options. Remained indecisive on how to curve the wall. :shakefish:

Baha, looking at that old picture I guess I did opt for straight lined bricks then, but I drew these one at a time (at least with guidelines for the rows; not that much of a masochist xP). Something about doing repetitive details is relaxing on the brain. : D...

Thanks for 'ze input~
