Happy New Year by CrystalCurtis Happy New Year by CrystalCurtis
HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! Daniel, Luke, Alex, and Ander enjoying their New
Year’s Eve tradition: having a pint (or 7, in the twins’ case) at the Swamp Laurel,
one of the local taverns. Tinder would most likely show up later, after
moping by herself about another year having passed without finding the
prince. q:

Oh, and I stared at a shield reference until I learned how to draw metal.
+_+ That was a learning experience.

Yeah, Alex and Ander (two boys on the right) are fraternal twins, which means they aren't identical.

Don't ask. I have this fondness for pictures involving men drinking. :shrug: It kinda turns me on, for some weird reason I have absolutely no clue what is.

Still, it's a very well drawn picture. The warm colors really add to the whole theme; gives it that cozy effect, you know. I love it! Fave time, I think! :+fav:
