Year of the Snake! by Shattered-Earth Year of the Snake! by Shattered-Earth

Happy Chinese New Year / Lunar New Year!


This year is the year of the snake if you follow the eastern Zodiac, and Feb 10th marks the beginning of serpenty goodness. I myself am a dragon, so I am waving good bye to my year tonight and welcoming the year of 95% of my former classmates XD

I hope everyone is having a great night and for those of you who celebrate it, i hope you are with or thinking of your family and having a great feast!




Bonus trivia, my snake girl is a red banded snake, Dinodon rufozonatum 赤链蛇, a common snake indigenous to China and east Asia~

Red is a lucky color for the new year!

And the chinese character for luck 福 is displayed upside down for the new year to symbolize luck coming :3 we always had one back home TuT

I love the lighting on this and the colors you chose. The light from the lantern hitting the end of the tail is especially stunning.

Time to say goodbye to the year of the dragon . It was my younger brother's year, and I have to say for the bad luck year he came out pretty unscathed!
