And a special thanks and big hugs to [ profile] bunnysworld for taking the plunge and picking this piece to write a fic for. I wish I could have done more art, but RL slapped me hard in the first quarter of the year.

This is wonderful!! Merlin shy and nervous and Arthur so tender-I really REALLY love the panel with their fingers entwined and the way the three panels are like a camera panning down-starting with the upper bodies, then zooming in on their hands and then finally panning down to their legs...and the reason why Merlin is so nervous (or at least that's where my mind went). Also love the way they are backlit from the window-gorgeous!

Just so so much awesome here!!

Now I can't wait to read what Bunny wrote for your lovely art <3

This is just such an emotive and wonderful piece of art Amph, you have the best ideas!! Love the execution and the gradual reveal. LOVE the bashful and delighted Merlin at the top, the hesitant fingers, the wonder we feel at what he's been through when we arrive at the end. Just fantastic! WELL DONE YOU! <33333

The lighting came out better than I expected! I was really aiming for a nice hazy summer late afternoon vibe. Thank you so much for commenting! *HUGS*

Oh, this is wonderful! I love the way you made the viewer linger on the words before you directed the visual attention to Merlin's situation. Just gorgeous, and Merlin's apprehension is so sweet.

That's a clever trick I picked up from reading comic books - taught me how to guide a reader's eye!

Thank you so much for commenting!!!

I looooove all the emotion you were able to convey with only three frames, and your COLOURS. Love the atmosphere in this. Wonderful. All of it. :D

I'm always such a scrooge when it comes to panels. I always try to tell a story with as few panels as I can get away with ;)

I still can't get over this piece, damn you! The shy tenderness of it, the way it captures me with the blush and the hesitantly entwining fingers and the nervous mumbling and then punches me in the stomach with the realisation what it's all about. You do that a lot to me, and I love you for it! ;)

This is a terrific series of drawings that tell a wonderful story of nerves and affection and moving into new territory in a relationship. Gorgeous drawing, coloring, shading and plotting - okay, gorgeous everything!

I remember seeing this in the prompt list and thinking how AMAZINGLY EXCELLENT it was and how it was bound to inspire a great story. Really beautifully done.

I swore I commented on this, but I loved this piece every since I saw it for claims :) Just beautiful---the way Merlin's shy and Arthur is "coaxing" him---eeee! my heart! Also I'm utterly in awe of how you use light and it just adds so much more texture to the piece. Really just beautiful!
