Denmark is holding some Trifolium pratense (red clover) flowers, which apparently is Denmark's national flower. How quaint!
Sorry for all the Hetalia fanart, it's just been so inspiring;;;
Not entirely happy with my Italy. I may redo him once I get the rest of the Axis and Allies done.
France turned out decent... And it's amazing what a bit of effort and reference does despite my dislike for drawing flowers.
I was trying to draw Japan next, but I keep failing on poses. Maybe I'll skip to England or Russia instead, then come back to him.
Anyway, will probably touch that up and color it for con use. Now if I'd just concentrate, I could do a bunch of these! Except I've only got 24 sheets of postcard paper left. I hope that's enough. =x=;;
On a different note, recently got into a small discussion on the definition of the slang use of "moe", which apparently is 萌え (budding) and not 燃え (burning) like I had first learned. I was trying to translate a line in a manga that just said 萌えます and someone said she would help, but all she told me was... it means budding, which... I could figure that out myself. A character stating 萌えます while looking at two other characters he thinks look good together, translating it literally as "budding" is not going to work in English. Hooow do I translate this? Augh, slang. /random rant
So I drew a young P.G.
I'll color this later, I cleaned up the line art already.
I've got a ways to go, though I sure don't want to copy Himaruya's style, this helps me get a grasp on proportions. Now I've gotta improve on making it look more dimensional and getting a better handle on linewidth and feeling more comfortable drawing chibi-stuff in general. It's a start!
