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 :)

Wow. I can really feel the emotion in this piece. Your color choice works really well, and the expression is amazing. Excellent form too, Kyo looks really masculine (I know you've had some doubt about drawing guy-bodies.) but it's awesome.
I mean, really, really awesome. I'm just stunned how real their emotions look. The lighting, the posture-- awesome awesome awesome!

YATTAH!!!! :la: :dance: I'm so proud! :glomp: Thank you so so much Mikey!! I am really happy with both of them, for the expressions and forms - I think it's some of my best work :XD: I totally have trouble figuring out guy-bodies... I think Kyo is less wonky then he could be because part of him is hidden by Tohru :3 I've been working on this for over a month so I'm really happy you like it! :love:

very pretty but in a way it reminds me of my art history class when halos where put around peoples heads in paintings during the Renaissance

that's cool! I was thinking something similar while making it: not to be disrespectful by giving them halos or holiness, but to present their love as a purity, a blessing. That, and I also really love the circular design motifs of Art Nouveau. :D

This is lovely! I especially like how the background meshes well with their hair (especially Kyo's as his is orange). The expressions are also heartfelt and sweet :)
