Behind the Gate by gem2niki Behind the Gate by gem2niki
Was for contest. But yeah, like the usual, I didn't win. I really suck at contest >_< I should probably stop entering in any drawing contests, cuz I am never able to win. >3< Must be something wrong with my concept and crap.

Anyways, original characters. The theme was "in the name of love" but in my mind, I have this vision of some foggy room and two charas getting into a train or some gate. So yea, that was my idea lol. But I didn't really cg it that way.

I just realize my monitor is really different from the monitor I used to cg this, so it looks darker on my screen but lighter on some others. So now, I don't know what the contrast/brightness actually looks like XD;; (I need a new monitor...dumb bulky 15" XD!!)

*adds this to my print shop X3*

Hi, I used this artwork in my compilation of

Sweetest Anime Pairings Artworks: "How Sweet it is to be Loved by You"

You can control F the title to locate it.

Please tell me if you don't want it there, but I really REALLY LOVE it so please let me keep it in the list. I have linked it to the source and stuff if you press the image so I'm not stealing.

If you have other suggestions to make the list better, just tell me. :)

Thank you and more power!
