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 :)

Kyo's complex expression is so wonderful, somewhere between sadness yet a gentle gratefulness of finding his other half. Mad though if I saw this in the contest I would almost give up. How can you top this. though the background could use a "tiny" bit more work (like a little bit more of a secondary color?) but other then that its well rounded.

:XD: Thank you! I am very proud of how his expression came out :love: :glomp: I can understand what you mean about the contest (I've been blown out of the water many times in many contests), but it's better to shoot for your own personal best rather than worrying about whether or not other artists' works can kick your work's butt. It's all relative. My goal is not just to wow the viewer but to make something that makes me really happy. I think you are very right about the background, but I was reaching my limit of working on it. :3 Thank you!
