Someone I've Needed So Long by Elera Someone I've Needed So Long by Elera
Always felt this song was perfect for how Mickey feels about her: [link]

In most stories they seem to be orphans, and it's obvious that they're each other's first loves, so it must be overwhelming sometimes, having someone enter your life suddenly and become your everything. So when it's Mickey who's suddenly overcome, his approach is smushing and squeezing.

The other night I really wanted to draw some fluff but all I really sketched was this; tonight I inked it and splashed some color on it really fast. The pattern in the background is from this wallpaper site: [link] Hopefully that's okay. The song lyrics were an afterthought - I just thought it needed a little something more.

I couldn't decide what clothes to draw them in, and I didn't want to obscure Minnie's outrageous curves and pointed feet, so I just drew them in their undies which are white in this because art. Yeah, I've stopped worrying about people being offended or whatever about me going too far with such G-rated characters. We all know what they'd really be like offscreen. Or at least I have some idea in my pervy adult mind. Yeah I'm finally coming to terms with the fact that I don't really have a reputation to protect and as for me ever producing art for a company or something or ever being a professional anything, that boat's sailed. #deaddreams

Sorry as usual for not tending to more important things - this last week I've been adjusting to a new job with crazy hours. I'm tired.

Happy Belated Birthday, you two. :heart:

Well if you think you that about probably never being a professional artist because of this adorable picture, your wrong I'll hire you. I'm looking for artists. Of course I still think you'll get a professional job someday(if not already).

Good pick for "their song". <3

And again, I think the thing I love most about this pic is the clothing choice; I've said it before, but it always bares repeating that whatever elements of sensuality you add to these characters never feels perverted or gratuitous, but simply honest. Here in particular, there's honestly something so perfectly touching about this warm, emotionally-open moment being shared between them in a state of open trust. I don't mean to over-dramatize or anything, but that little touch of having them be that open around each other clicks very nicely for me.
I also continue to adore how you handle physical interactions with these two; it's always got this great, cartoon-like elasticity to it, but also a gentle, clever touch of something a bit more "realistic"; Mickey's cheek-nuzzling in particular is just perfect, but I also love the way Minnie curves into his hug, or the stretch of their feet. And, of course, the faces are enough to melt ice; strongly emotive and simply adorable.
I hope adjusting to your new job goes well, but if it helps at all, I think this is the best kind of gift for our favorite mice. ^3^
