For some reason I keep coming back to peek at this drawing.

I just... love everything about it.
I'm a sucker for kissing scenes, I never dare to draw one for Birdie & Basil... only a small sketch somewhere in a corner :XD:

But this scene, it really touches me for some weird reason.

*hides*

I'm a weirdling aren't I.

this pic gives me the giggles ! <3

I tell yah, Regardless of being slightly more of a Ratigan fan myself.. this pic just appeals GREATLY to me <3 ITS ADORABLE! ;u; !

My 'awwww!' meter is goin' off the charts!! OMG!! I LURVE YOH ART ! HAAA :la: :la: :la:

Okay.. down to the actual comment:
Oh my goodness :iconbasilsangelofmusic: is a lucky guurl <3 ;p
Their expressions are what clinches the moment so perfectly! I have yet to see Basil so... vulnerable ~ <3 You even gave his outfit a christmassie twist! <3 ! OOOooOoo <3 SO MUCH RESPECT FOR THIS!

Iona looks lovely! Her expression is so sweet <3 and I can't get over how pretty she looks >u< ! The way she tugs at his scarf
I looove kissie pics <3 >U< they make me giggle

I love the clear distinction you create when drawing male and female (as well as mouse and rat) characters >//< you make it seem like second nature *_* the way you draw their snouts, face, and body structures. I keep forgetting to point this out!

The background ties it all togetherr <3 ! Merry X MAS to you THT! you deserve one on the house <3 XD

I HAD to give him Christmassy clothes ;P If not, it just wouldn't be Christmas, amirite ;P
When drawing female mice, I'm always afraid they're going to look generic, and I have to admit, some do - which is why certain characters are so much more fun for me to draw, because they have distinctive looks which makes them stand out from the crowd (and yes Lyn is amongst those), but every once in a while it is just nice to draw a female mouse, without having to worry about special body-feature for example. 
Basil is always entertaining - I love both guys just as much (Basil and Ratigan) which is so rare in a movie, and just goes to show WHY TGMD is such a classic!

it gives his otherwise formal get up a sorta sassy, slightly flamboyant, almost flirty flair * _ * 
I revere your artwork, surely you know that >U< if not. .... 

THT I HAVE A HIGH OPINION OF YOH DANG ART STYLE <3 THERE ~! 

Oh >u< that's always been a hurdle for me too >_<, you seemingly draw them effortlessly :) and with such variation sometimes, almost as to suggest you practice on a very regular basis ( * x * )
Llama Emoji-10 (Shy) [V1] Thank you... aw... Lyn thanks youh.
:giggle: TMGD for the :D WIN

I'm so happy to have you as a follower - you're sweet, kind and incredibly crazy talented yourself, and man, your drawings just really makes a day!

It was a secret santa, and she wished for IonaxBasil stuff, so... Besides this was a gift for :iconbasilsangelofmusic: not for anyone else.

You're really amazing at drawing kissing scenes!
The love you've put in here is too gorgeous to look at.

Drawing Basil in a kissing scene ain't easy, due to the shapes of his face...
You pulled it off perfectly though!
And Iona looks so adorable, with that pouty mouth :heart:

The way they're sitting in their chairs is pretty epic too.
You manage to handle all those difficulties in their poses, it looks so elegant and easy~

The way they're leaning into each other is so lovely too. And Iona grabbing Basil's tie, so adorable I'm gonna die <3

The background is just... just... breathtaking.
Ohmygod, it's so perfectly looking. So soft yet everything stands out clearly.

I envy your talent <3

And BasilsAngelofMusic is a lucky gal to receive this as Christmas gift :heart:

Aw, thank you so much. I normally never include backgrounds, but this was a Secret Santa, so I wanted to add something special... Which in my case is going the extra mile and adding a bg ;P
But yeah, it was a lot of fun - normally Basil is either hit or miss for me; it works or it don't, and I find that drawing him in profile is when I almost always feel like I get him right (IMO of course). Luckily most of the kissing-scenes will be in profile, so yay for that! He is a lot of fun to draw though, once I get him right, but man... he is still one tricky SOB.
