sorry I couldn't think of a good title.. D:

For :iconoreana:'s birthday, which is tomorrow, but since tomorrow is going to be hell for me I'm posting it now so I won't forget. I'd rather something be a little early than a second too late. :)
I wasn't sure what to do for a background and then I thought I wanted to do those awesome light effect..things. Which as it turns out are called Bokeh. I think I went overboard but I really don't care, since I love the effect. I think it looks very warm, romantic and maybe a little magical even. :D
Happy birthday Oreana. :hug: I hope you'll have a lovely day. 

(also, I HATE that DA is messing up the quality of images! WHY?! >.< )

It's a very lovely gift. :heart: I love the tender pose, and this cool bokeh effect adds a lot of warmth to the picture. You drew Ignis very well, too.
Overall a charming scene, literally sparkling with love - and as you said, magical! :D

(Indeed, DA is very bad at compressing large files; I noticed years ago that it tends to add unwanted noise around any contrasting edge. A solution could be to reduce the size of your image yourself, and choose "Original size" after uploading the file on the submission page. This way, the quality is preserved. That's what I do now ; ))

Thank you very much. :D

I had no idea it's been going on that long.. I only noticed it for a few months now.
Thanks for the tip. Funny thing is, I used to do it that way. XD but since I have a redbubble, I've been making my images a lot bigger and just using a smaller size here on DA. Guess I'll have to go back to the way I did it before. ;)

catching love ;~; It looks absolutely beautiful.. I really love the poses and the outfits you chose for them both! :heart: The setting looks so magical indeed--like they're just somewhere that is indeed full of mystical beauty! I love that you didn't put too much emphasis on the background as I think I would be too focused on Ignis' eyes and love more than anything else in this situation and the world around me just wouldn't exist for a time.  In Love In Love  It almost makes me think they're in Altissia at night with how lovely the lighting is!

:hug: Thanks so much for the lovely piece. :hug: I absolutely adore it! In Love 
And I totally understand putting things out early. x3; I do it all the time just in case something happens. :hug:

True, you'd be so into Ignis that you'd forget all about the surroundings. XD
Actually they are. :dummy: I took inspiration from Altissia at night for the background. :D
You're welcome. I'm glad you do. :hug:
