.: Hey Little Birdie :. by C-Yen .: Hey Little Birdie :. by C-Yen
"Hey Little Birdie, could you do me a favour?
Tell them goodbye for me."


Finally back in New Zealand!~ Funnily enough, while in China I got a huge burst of ideas for Hetalia but nothing related to Yao. :/ Ah well. This was one of the ideas that spawned on me while over there and I drew most of this there when I had time.
Does Gilbird look like himself...? I am no good with chicks. :XD:

Hope everyone had a great Chinese New Years!~

I feel like this is a bit plain from my normal work... no idea.

Media used:
0.5 Mechanical Pencil
48 Classic Colours Faber Castell
0.4 Fine point pens.
White Gel Pen
Vivid Markers - Black

Hetalia - Prussia (c) Hidekaz Himaruya
Art (c) ~GhoulofDemise

You have such beautiful art! I was loving your gallery, but when I saw KH and Hetalia, I just went nuts. You are very talented btw, though you must already know that :D

And thank you!!! :heart:
I can't say I have much KH compared to Hetalia at the moment but I do plan on drawing more Kingdom Hearts in the future when time allows me too! I may not draw anymore Hetalia though. It has been a long time since I've watched it or read it or been into it. That part has retired!
Nawww shucks, you are too kind! I hope you have a wonderful July Lovely Shoujo Emoji (Huggy Hug) [V2]

I love the dark sharp lines and so many colours! :wow: And the colour scheme you used made it somehow look medieval!

But then Germany came and said "you'll be my East so you'll never fade away". And they lived happily, reunified ever after. /shot

All kidding aside.

Oh my gosh!!! I swear I never saw this in my inbox. D= How could I miss this? It's so great! Once again, I am captivated by your style and your shading! And how the deep, dark lines give such a great contrast.

I think that Gilbird is fine. He wasn't really given much detail in the webcomic, so it's great here.

That'd be so very sweet.

I did upload quite a bit in that month. It was probably easy to miss :XD:
I swear my style changes quite a bit. Maybe it's more subtle than I thought~ Glad you like the contrasting; it was the most plainest background of mine yet. Colour wise anyways :P

I suppose everyone has a different Gilbird in mine, whether he be a chubby chickie or an actual bird. Thank you~~~ :heart:

[I'm am loving all of your comments right now :hug:]

I really like the way you make folds and shadows, because it adds an ounce of originality to it, even though it's fanart. It makes your work stand out :)

I don't know, what your original intention was, but the triangle corners reminds me of an old photograph frame, which makes me think of your drawing being a picture taken of Gilbert in one of his last moments as Preußen, before he slowly fades away..

By the way, don't worry about Gilbird. He is often drawn in a rather cartoonish style, mostly as a roundish yellow spot with eyes, and I may not know a whole lot about chicken anatomy...:icongo-on-plz:
but I think you can't mistake your Gilbird for anything else than well, a Gilbird ;)

Oh you got me. I'm obsessed with folds and shadows :XD:
I love drawing them, that even sometimes it may be just a bit over the top. ^^;
But I'm glad you like that aspect~~ :heart:

I have no idea of my original intention to be honest. :/
I just wanted to make it seem like a bittersweet parting and our dear Gil literally disappearing~

Gilbird ends up being a fat podge
I swear in my BFT work I'm doing at the moment, he's become a soldier bird.
Chicken anatomy is a rather humourous concept. :la:

Thank you so much for your comment hun~ :hug:
I appreciated it heaps (I love long comments)
Hope you have the most amazing April (what's left anyways!) :love:

Gilbird as a soldier bird? Hm, with Preußens military history, it would seem logical, that he would be a fierce chick ;P

I'm glad you liked my lengthy thoughts! I hope you will enjoy the rest of the month :hug:

Poor Gilbert~ I ought to draw him in more ... happier (?) times~
He's just too fun to draw in a serious aspect.

Give your Prussia a hug! Yes?

Oh my! You wish to steal this piece of art - although mind you getting the original will be quite the difficult process. :XD: As difficult as finding me with the work in New Zealand for that matter!

I'm so glad that you like it that much. You make me very happy to hear or read that (whichever). Hahaha it seems there is beauty in representing Gil's disappearing~ As sad as it is.

Hurray for the little cutie!

Thanks for your ongoing comments hun! How's your work coming along? :la:

I do apologise for my late reply! I must admit when I drew this Gil was originally going to be quite sad. That is until I wanted his last moments to be burden free and at least be somewhat happy. Somewhat. :P

Thanks I did have a rather nice Chinese New Years. I do hope you enjoyed yours and hoping you have a lovely Valentines! :heart: :heart: :heart:
Hopefully I can submit something quick for you lovely people regarding that. Hahaha it's been a while since I've been called that. Perhaps it's due to me preferring to be called by my shortened name, Yen. ^^;
