Ah, still a fresh bond, very nice to see them in the calendar! Wow, the soft warm light makes for a wonderful setting. I love the way you color and shade skin. Looks so soft and nice to touch. :love

Your style is always a welcome addition to the calendar. This looks like cel animation, which is really cool.

Thank you both for the lovely comments.
When I saw the chosen theme for this year's calendar, it was clear to me that it was these two who I wanted to draw.

Aaaawww . . .  Tender moment for the month of Hearts.  The dreamy quality to the background and surrounding colors is so perfect; soft and soothing.  Honest caring comes thru in the body mechanics and the slight lean from Mender shows his wonder in Dart as a mate. So sweet.  Beautiful choice, ShujiE.

The pose looks like it drew itself really - were there any troubles with the choice?

What a tender moment you've captured! I love how you chose to color the background, the purple and orange looks great.

@Tah-Marien Yes, the pose was the first thing that popped into my head when I started doing this. I did have a couple of false starts, but the end result did practically draw itself once I stopped thinking about it. I'm glad I got the tenderness come through.

@Startear Thank you!

Tehee, soft light, indeed. Very fitting for this romantic scene. And the light is spot on the characters and sets a good focus on them.
Dart seems to be fairly serious about it all, enjoying the moment, but still being serious about his feelings; but I am not sure if Mender is doing so as well, he looks more playful and seems to be taking things more lightly. Also interesting to see the warmth captured with this relatively limited palette.

I considered doing these two for last years calendar, they do make a lovely picture. As others has said, this looks so warm and soft, it's really well done especially given the limited palette that you've chosen!
