Fruits Basket Bookmark - Tohru and Kyo by tahliadenae Fruits Basket Bookmark - Tohru and Kyo by tahliadenae
I don't know why it's taken me SO LONG to upload these here, but finally, more than a year later, here's the Fruits Basket bookmarks I did to take around to conventions.

Kyo and Tohru (and Fruits Basket in general) have a really special place in my heart. It felt good to finally do some fanart of these two.

Feel free to critique, though again, this is more than a year old and I can see a lot of mistakes myself. But still! Critique is ALWAYS welcome!

Kyo and Tohru, and Fruits Basket belong to Natsuki Takaya.
Art is mine. More at my tumblr!

They look great in your style! The background is so cute and the lines are so clean. (So jealous of your clean line-li-ness!) I have to admit though.. I do prefer your original work to your fanart. I feel I see more of you as an artist with your original stuff ^^

Oh, I prefer my original stuff too, haha. In general I prefer seeing original work from artists. Fan art is nice and all, and sometimes you want to put your all into paying homage to a favourite series, but more often than not the original work is where an artist really comes alive, and I love that. I love seeing characters and stories come out of someone's own imagination.

This is so sweet! I really like how the cellshading came out, especially for his pants. Great work on the lighting too! Critique-wise, the aspect I find most "off" would be the size of his hand compared to his face?

Awww, shucks :blush: Thank you! I was trying to find a style that paid homage to Fruits Basket, but was also not a direct copy, so it's nice to see that that's come through :) You're so kind, thanks for taking the time to comment! :heart:

WOW! Amazing detail and colouring! So pretty~! But the apples remind me of death note...
Reply

tahliadenae Featured By Owner Aug 3, 2012
Haha, thank you! Can I ask: do they remind you of death note because of they way they're drawn/coloured... Or just because they're apples? I can definitely say I did not have DN in mind when I drew these =P
