APH - Edelweiss by fablespinner APH - Edelweiss by fablespinner
Sometimes a sketch comes out better than intended and rather than screw it up by messing with it anymore I figured I'd leave it alone. Sometimes less is so much more.

All done with just the pencil tool in Manga Studio. That's it. Simple.

Here's HRE (In my fan-verse he is also Germany/Will become Germany.) and N. Italy.

Non-Chibi (Cause my chibi's really suck.) Plus I really like drawing children. :heart:

I love the whole "They were always meant to be/Soul Mates" angle so here they are picking Edelweiss in a field being cute and adorable (and crossdressing thanks to Papa Austria. Really Austria did you never give the boy a bath! LOL!)

I think it's pretty obvious cause we never see Chibi GERMANY do we and HRE looks exactly like a Chibi Germany would. It's not much of a stretch to connect the dots.

No he doesn't because he's 6 and he's warm playing outside in the sunshine it's summer time and I thought it was cuter this way with just the lederhosen and Italy in a traditional Italian summer dress both barefoot in the grass.

This is too cute and very beautiful. I love the patterning of the clothes and the way their faces and bodies look like real children. Absolutely delightful! :clap:

WoW! Excellent, I like the shading of their faces. Awww! One has to wonder if they will ever realize just who eachother is when they grow up ~_^
You know how to draw kids, Girly. They look like they just trotted out of one of those German fairytales.

I hope so, I want Germany to get his HRE memories back and then realize he's been in love with Feliciano forever. Awwwwww. They are almost as squishy as SuFin for me. :heart:

I was looking at pictures of real lederhosen and traditional Italian Dressess to get ideas for the trim patterns on their clothes. (I like to be accurate with little details).

Hansel and Lucretia went up a hill to pick a basket of flowers... (and the damn song Edelweiss from Sound of Music has been on my mind for HOURS now.)

*nods* I to want to see that to! *lol* Germany thinks he can't get rid of Feliciano now, imaging said Italian know that Germany is his 'Holy Roman Empire'.

After seeing a few really awesome pics, I imagine that Prussia somehow 'killed' Holy Rome, but took the blank-slate child that was left as his own.

I always picture it as After it's Fall/Defeat HRE was so wounded he suffered amnesia. Head wounds can be nasty, so yeah, BLANK SLATE, but he was still *ALIVE* so there was some LAND out there that was his "CORE" which is current Map Germany. I always see the nations as being tied to/part of the land itself. I see Prussia and Austria (and Even Switzerland) having a hand in reshaping what was left of HRE and perhaps (here's my thinking) when little Italy sees the wounded HRE and he does not recognize him at all it breaks his little heart *BUT* he knows Ludwig is still Alive and that's all that matters, and they can start again someday.

*AWWWW* I know sappy right?

I know. And the whole time I'm drawing this I'm thinking about :iconlaurazel:. She's an Italian friend of mine and she *IS* Feliciano or rather I think Himaruya actually knows Laura too. Because he totally based Feliciano's personality on hers. She is the SWEETEST thing ever! (Even if she is Southern Italy based on where she lives. ;) ) And I've known her longer than Hetalia has been being drawn so I giggle whenever I see Feli because Laura ALWAYS springs to my mind instead. :)

I wish. She lives in Taranto, Italy. She's a professional artist (which means she's dirt poor!) We were talking earlier today how ONE OF THESE YEARS I'm either going to get my ass to Italy or She has to come here. She makes me squee she's so damn cute. :)

Apparently Italy is going through some political unrest right now, to the point where S. Italy is talking about UNDOING the unification. Like for real. She's not a happy girl right now and this is stuff you don't hear on ANY news programs. Apparently the current Prime Minister is a total fascist and things are getting really UGLY in the political arena these days.

Thanks. :heart: It started out as just a nonsense doodle cause my eyelids are freaking twitching tonight (Have you ever had that where your muscles are driving you nuts and just twitch uncontrollably?) So I didn't want to work on a commission with my eyes bugging me, so I just started doodling and I like when something nice happens from that. :)

I know all about uncontrollable muscle spasms, I have chronic hiccups XD

When I have bad twitches I feel the need to roll on the carpet or run around the house.
