I prefer for pics done traditionally done with a white background because a detailed background takes some of the focus away from the character. I'm personally not that great at backgrounds either, even with Photoshop, I just cheat and use premade brushes that are in the shape of a tree or whatever it is I want in the background.
How did I not see this before? Oh well, I guess it does not matter, this pic has the potential to make people go blind because their eyes aren't used to this level of cute! One of the cutest things I have ever seen!

Aww, aren't you just the cutest little thing? *kisses his cheeks*
