I am one of those persons who love Valentine's Day regardless if I am with somebody or not. Haha, not only because I am a hopeless romantic. I think it is nice that we have those days when we think about other people.

I can somewhat understand the ones who think the day is a commercial ripoff. Personally, I think that so long as our own private feelings are sincere that is what matters the most. I will also not blame people who hate the day because it makes them feel lonely. As for myself, I do not want anything other than "the real deal" and so long as I have not met anyone to feel that deeply for I am satisfied being happy for everyone else's sake.

Actually, I did not have the time to draw anything for Valentine's Day. I ended up pulling out the drawer with my old sketch pads and tried desperately to find something I could bear to put in my gallery. I found this one of Ranma and Akane. Then, just as I was putting my finishing touches on the colouring, my laptop crashes and I lose the complete file. I nearly broke down. I wanted to celebrate Valentine's with a drawing so badly that I wasted time I could actually not afford and it ended like this? Well, I cheered up enough to waste a teensy bit time more. It's a bit late and not anything special but at least it is something.

Hugs for all you wonderful people out there. Remember to eat lots of chocolate.

This is really cute; I like Akane's gentle, somewhat shy expression and the natural way she's grabbing his shoulder. The faded coloring gives it a really nice soft look that brings out the gentle mood.

Also, I am exactly the same way about Valentine's Day, haha. I tend to rename it Shipper Day in my mind. :P

Haha, now I will also most likely end up calling it Shipper Day :giggle: Thank you so much for your comment. It always amazes me how many nice things people can find to say. Words don't always come easy and one must choose to express them so I am really grateful :thanks:
