.: 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

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:
