Old Friends

I don't know what it's called, but I often see this type of style being often used in animation illustration. Shapes are clean and shading relatively simple.

I did a similar one before A Moment in the Sun by aJVL, but only did recently became more fond of this type of work. 

Anyhow, do tell me what you think as I hope to do more of these. 
Is the yellow tint unnecessary, or do you think it should cover the entire background? Are the colors harmonizing well? Any which you may think I can improve on.

I think the yellow tint adds to the book loving of the characters. It makes the background look like old paper and remind them of the old memories that they shared together. It really fits well with the illustration style of the characters and the characters are very well done.

Nicely done. It's a relatively minimalistic take on the two characters, but nothing feels under-done or out-of-place.

If you have a twitter account you can probably report it. I hear they're actually doing stuff about copyright now.
