Aight *cracking knuckles*
I'm gonna attack this sucker: I am SO so so so happy for this piece!
It's just... wow. First of all, this is the first DawsonxBurke-fanart I've ever received! With Dawson being a tricky character to draw, I can also understand why that is, but it just makes this piece SO much more important to me! 
Technically, this piece is superb as usual - The outlines are fantastic, I simply adore how you used the tails to 'close' the image and colours are wonderful. So much brown/sepia love, and so soft, all of it. The digitised background really works well with you traditional piece - it fits together really well, which can be very tricky and the bubbles around them gives it such a light, happy, bubbly vibe to it. 
I seriously can't get over the colouring - it's just fantastic! So soft, so smooth - perfectly blended, nothing less.
And MAAAAAAAAN the image itself! 
You really get the sense that these two are a couple of middle-aged comfortable people, with a lot of history together. The affections that radiates from them both seem so very genuine and I am eternally grateful for that. Dawsons expression (and his hand :trollface:) is so sweet and the way he gazes at Burke is beyond touching. Burke herself is perfect; I love how giddy she seems, all of the sudden - I can absolutely see her being like this when Dawson is being all affectionate. 
Everything about this piece is wonderful, and I really think you caught them at the sweetest and most affectionate! Dudette! Yara! My lady... 
Can I adore you forever, because I simply love this to bits!!!!!

I didn't know this was the first DxB fanart! Damn, how is that even possible.
They practically drip adorableness... if that doesn't sound pervy :XD:

It was incredible nice to work with these colours! I wanted to take the opportunity to draw Ediths original outfit again <3

The bubbly background was inspired by yours, hahaha ^_^

And am I relieved Edith is not OOC! I wanted to try to draw a different side of her, because I thought she would look like this whenever she's caught off guard with Dawson being all "romantically grabbing her hand and staring in her eyes".

Ah, giiiiiiirl, stawp it with all the love and the hugs, ffff :tighthug:

I WILL NEVER STOP!

Yeah, I actually do need to work out a method to show off how their relationship evolves; It includes a lot of Edith leaving and returning to London. It's not a steady relationship, as they are in separate countries which of course tears on both of them, until the moment they realise they cannot see each other anymore as they can never settle and long-distance (especially back then) is next to impossible. Eventually it will lead to a 'break-up' (or whatever they would have titled it back then ;P

At least until Edith makes a drastic move ;P

And no, they are not OOC at all - I like the idea of them being dorkish-romantic instead of romantic-romantic ;P It suits them so much better, IMO.

I just can't thank you enough for this! My very first DxB-fanart :love: Means the world to me.

Thanks, I hope so. I'm just sad that I can show it off properly in drawings, nor that I can't write it, so I'll have to figure out a method to properly convey it ;P

This is so sweet. :aww: Dawson looks like he even lost a little weight here. He could be trying to shed some pounds to take care of his health, and that's a good thing. :) I'm glad to see you're doing better, Yara. :heart:

Yeah, I drew Dawson too thin :XD:

You're welcome! :hug: No, it's a good thing! Dawson's character is based on Nigel Bruce's Dr. Watson. The actor was slightly more on the heavy side, mainly to stand next to a thin rail such as Basil Rathbone's Holmes. Dawson is average build in the Eve Titus books, where the difference next to Basil is only height. I like to think here that maybe Edith is taking good care of him, and he's lost a little weight due to better eating. That, or all the running around chasing criminals has caused some weight loss. :XD: Sorry, this was bigger explanation than intended. The point is, I like your results here! :aww:
