YAY!! :la: I won second place in :iconrusky-boz:!Rusky-Boz's contest, "Show Me Your Love" rusky-boz.deviantart.com/journ… ! Thank you everyone for your kind comments and faves! :heart:


I chose to paint Kyo and Tohru together from Natsuki Takaya's manga series, Fruits Basket. Through rocky and terrible times, they found love and hope in each other in such a beautiful way. One's life would not be complete without the other. :love: It's wonderful to think they can also embrace each other in the end.

Artistically, I wanted them to appear to be laying down on bedsheets while at the same time backlit by the sun's warm rays.

Takaya's Fruits Basket is one of my very favorite series and deserves a try from everyone. Here's to finding the glowing warm of love, even when you think you are lost alone in the darkness. :peace:

first of all, i really like the coloring, yellow and white background in a wounderfull design wich resembles the sun. you can also feel the warmness of it just by looking at it. the characters are really adorable and very good drawn. very good sun color effect on them. the hair is very good shaded & detailed . but the thing confuses me is are they standing on the ground , falling or allready down? (i guess they are over the background since its called "Bed") but it dont really look like that. so overall. yeah its really amazing. and a very lovably artwork :)

this is beautiful! The way they hold each other is so tender and fso perfectly conveys that "I can't live without you" sentiment. The warm glow of the sun's rays also visually complete the warm emotions in this picture. wonderful!

yay! Depending on if you want just one or a few, they are $3 for one (which covers the cost of shipping) and $1 for each additional one. So like 3 would be $5 total. The are glossy oversized postcard prints that are just larg enough to hang up and display, or send in the mail to loved ones, or give to friends. :3 Still want one? :D
