Last Night Vale picture, I promise.  Well, at least for now.  I chose to put them back to back instead of in a more overtly romantic pose, but I couldn't resist a little surreptitious hand holding.

This one was tricky to color and I'm still not entirely satisfied.  I gave Carlos a primarily yellow palette to contrast with Cecil's purple, but yellow is a tricky color to work with, and that made it difficult to pick a background color: Cool to neutral colors make Carlos stand out too much and warm colors make Cecil stand out too much, but there needs to be a background color or else the hair, shirt, and lab coat disappear into the background.  You can see an earlier Carlos design here.

Pose reference by syccas-stock.
