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 :)

I have to say, that it's probably the best shojo series I've ever read. Nothing compares to it.:thumbsup:

It's very beautiful. :) The expression on Kyo's face seems to be everything he feels for Tohru. Very wonderfully done.

i love how the sun makes them pop out. the left arm looks a little weird in my opinion and it looks like she is missing a leg. i know its hard to not make them too tiny..

thank you! which left arm looks weird to you? Kyo's or Tohru's?
Tohru's right leg is supposed to be right under the top, left one :D

oh my Kyoru! It's been a long time since the height of my Fruits Basket fandom, I miss it. :(

This is really beautiful I love the warm glow it gives off. I really like the effect you tried to capture with the sheets and the sunlight and I think you did a good job!
