The Wrong Crowd for a Celebration by harwicks-art The Wrong Crowd for a Celebration by harwicks-art
I've always liked the classic fantasy vibe the show has used from time to time (although they seem to be drifting more regularly into modern times with Season 4 especially)... and if there's one thing every classic fantasy story needs, it's a tavern for the heroes to gather in.  Admittedly, judging by the crowd above they might have taken a wrong turn somewhere along the way...

Anyway, have a little something to celebrate St. Patrick's Day!  Only with very little green in it.  Still, it was a fun image to do, and I'm quite happy with how it turned out.  It also allowed me to tackle a lot of the antagonist side of the cast that I haven't managed to draw in any prior works, so that's always fun.  If you get the chance, I'd recommend looking at the larger version of it.

A wild Trixie appears! Roll for initiative.

I love how Gilda's up on the rafter; just like a cat, or in this case, cat-eagle mythological chimeric predator.

Aside from that I just don't know what to say. This is just wonderful, the level of detail is astounding, and the work you've put into it boggles me. I love how you drew Rainbow's mouth, it really makes it look like she has an actual muzzle instead of just a big nose. Though if I had to nitpick, I'd say the bubbles on the drinks are a bit overdone; they kinda look like they're drinking bubble bath water. XD

Just, an awesome, awesome picture, sir.
