Artist Comment

Wasn't really planning on submitting this here (or on AP), but I decided to do it since, after all, I've got nothing to lose :) This began as an iPhone wallpaper for the a little [boys] lovin'. challenge, but I liked it too much to not have it on my desktop, so I extended it XD There's nothing major about that, though, most of the work went into coloring and cleaning the original manga page.

If anything, this wall is more like what I used to do with icons, taking manga pages and coloring them. But after so many busy walls (and icons piling up continuously) on my desktop I really wanted something simpler. That's why there's a lot of space on the sides and, depending on which resolution you're looking at, the bottom. I wanted the focus to be on the artwork itself, with a minimalistic (but not empty) background c: I didn't know what to do with the background so I tried a cutout style but the edges didn't fit so I made them round, like a sticker. Then I added that pattern in the background and the text.

I also made a gray version, which I personally prefer because it's easier on my eyes and makes the image pop out even better than the orange version.

    I really like this! Simple, cute and well done :D The warm colours are perfect, and I like this simple type of background :3
    Keep up the good work! :)

    I'm not really a fan of shounen-ai/yaoi but I really like this. I actually also prefer the orange version because it looks more upbeat and chipper than the cooler, gray one. Nice job on the vector, too and the minimalistic approach really fits the overall scene. The only thing I'd point out is that they seem kind of like they're 'hanging' too much from the top while the bottom is a bit empty but that's just my symmetry OCD so ignore that. Nice job overall! :)

    I just adore this one, Pande~
    I love the minimalistic design and you did such a gorgeous job on the coloring.
    The fact that it's BL is just an added bonus. e-e
