"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.

:O Don't envy me! :P
I love the dark sharp lines and so many colours! :wow: And the colour scheme you used made it somehow look medieval!

Thank you :heart:
I'm glad you like the style~
May you have a happy 2013~ :hug:
Thank you and you too!

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:
