Have You Hugged Yourself Today?

Young Luke gives Asch a hug.“Get away from me, dreck! You smell funny and you can’t even walk right. Hey! Don’t hug me!”

Young Asch and Luke from Tales of the Abyss. It’s been done a thousand times before me, but seeing these two as “brothers” in their youth simply strikes me as cute. And, for once, I’m satisfied with my own coloring job. Used the same cel shading wannabe style here I’ve been using in Swordmaster Odyssey as of late. Gives me some practice if nothing else.
