Comments can no longer be edited after a certain amount of time, so we ask that you post ONE strudel per comment, so that you can hide the comments after it has been traded off. Posting multiple in the same comment causes confusion if you cannot hide just one strudel in particular. ALSO if your strudel is not on the masterlist, please post to the Can't find your strudel? entry on the StrudelCupboard (https://www.deviantart.com/strudelcupboard) to help us find any missing babies!

i really really really want to see more ppl experimenting with their art, esp in the wings of fire fandom (i love u all but please. Please. stop copying realtense) so this is what i'm going to do to encourage that. what is the challenge? draw something out of your comfort zone! if you usually draw w lines, try lineless. if you usually use muted colors, try bright ones. if you usually draw standing poses, do an action pose. throw some cubism in there. go buckwild. genuinely just stretch yourself beyond your comfort zone and what is... well, 'fandom popular'; the ability to diversify your style is a strength, not a hindrance. what are the re

:star: Jumping right in to new projects!


I finally got ideas for a Russia/China doujinshi! :iconchuuplz: I've been wanting to draw one for a while, but I couldn't guarantee 100% I would finish it...Looking around my desk, I've seen so many failed stories and sketches, probably 7-8 different ones that never even made it to the inking stage..(they were all GokuTsuna, haha..!) But this time I finally have enough passion to stick to the end! I will get this done before 2009 is up!!:iconhandsomeonionplz:

It is going to be a serious story actually...:iconimseriousplz: OTL I wanted to start out with something light-hearted or cute or funny, since that is how I like them, but it turned out this way... I also think I'm more suited to doing humor stuff, but... *hide face* the story is running off by itself!! :iconimhachuneplz: Maybe after this one I'll do a fun little story, but as for now..

I'm going to have to do a LOOT of research for this, since it's sorta embarrassing, but....I'm not really familiar with early Russian history (Cossacks and stuff) and also Ming dynasty...orz better with 1900+ also because most Hetalia fandom is in that timeline..! So I gotta study... To the library! It's history, so I want to be accurate!

ugg....WALL TEXT.... let's break it up with some random tegaki~


The story is actually 2 parts: China-side & Russia-side. So yeah...must draw 2 doujinshi! but..which one first?!?! I don't mind either way, it's kinda really sad no matter who it is...well, I think China-side is sadder....:noes:

Which side should I draw first, China-side or Russia-side?

It's the same time period, but different point of view.

Also....

CAN SOMEBODY RECOMMEND ME A SOMEWHAT-FAMOUS CHINESE SONG THAT HAS TO DO WITH LONGING, HURT, ETC? JUST A SMALL PART OF IT HAS TO MENTION/HINT AT IT, CAN HAVE HAPPY ENDING. ACTUALLY YOU CAN JUST GIVE ME A HUGE LIST AND I CAN LOOK THROUGH THEM. NEED CHINESE LYRICS & ENGLISH TRANSLATION..!

It's for a good purpose.:icondesiremeplz: (actually it is for China-side, I already have a Russian song I wanna use)

Someday I will draw a Germany/Austria, or German/Austria/Prussia one! But first I must learn how to draw Germany manly! And Prussia's hair is so hard for me...orz


:star: Dogs artbook

Joined a Dogs artbook project.........:iconimstilltwitchingplz:
With all of these amazing artists...

:iconshoumon: :iconflyingcorpseinthesky: :iconappleloo: :iconnmriyeh-san: :iconaka-shiro: :iconshy-smile: :iconkiwishu: :icong0th3g1gg13s: :iconbosmitze: :iconkagami222: :iconjohwa: :iconeiniv: :iconkou-chann: :iconakinohara::iconsaigu::icontoonikun::iconpchaness:
Probably more people now, this list keeps getting bigger and bigger...AND MORE INTIMIDATING....

I don't think I have the time to be a full artist for that, so I might just do guest work, but...we'll see /A

IT'S BEEN A YEAR SINCE I'VE READ DOGS. I guess this is a sign to BE MORE DILIGENT IN MY MANGA FOLLOWING!

:star: Other To-Do

- Ivan/Yao tegaki video(more story + art, less constant animation)
- finish APH Napoleon Dynamite dance animation
- Diaries of an Aristocrat (collection of Ludwig/Roderich 4koma comics)
- desktop wallpaper ver of Russian alphabet (eek, finish this soon!)
- Turnabout Sino business card thing
- Nice...Liaoning? Shandong? China doesn't have as obvious a phallic geography as Primorsky+Khabarovsk....
- OH YEAH, HOMEWORK. AHAHAHAHA: two twenty-page essays on China, read & analyze 4 huge books on modern Chinese history, AGH I SHOULD'VE KNOWN "STUDY-ABROAD" IMPLIES HW AND NOT JUST TOURISM....

Am I forgetting anything? Do I owe anybody any art??

Ok, off to the post office to mail those 250+ blasted calendars now...(btw, if you didn't send in an order form or didn't pay for your calendar yet, well...your copy got bought by someone else who did. : I can't "reserve" any for anybody since I honestly can't remember..I check my email to see the order forms sent and that's how I make lists, not by my memory. I think I still have around 5 left, so if you want one please order asap!!

and then my driving road test tomorrow..(failed last time for not have dramatic enough head turns)

:star: [edit] Forgot about this...

Um...parody of Brüno.....because I loved Austria, but it turned out...

DO NOT DO NOT WATCH THAT MOVIE..!!! IT'S NOT RATED R, IT'S FREAKING NC-17. UURRGGWWAAAHHHHHHHHH....MY EYES, MY EYES, I COULDN'T EVEN FINISH WATCHING IT.....
Unless you like to watch uncensored singing penorz and people shoving fire extinguishers & champagne bottles down each arsenhallers....shudderrrr........even a veteran doujinshi reader like me couldn't handle it...
I mean, parts of it were funny but then some things just WEREN'T NEEDED...nfgggraaaaahhhhh

well, china side first!!!
willl you post it on deviantart?
also, chinese song?
I'd go with Deng Ni Hui Lai (waiting for you to come back) Old sad one sung by a women (LIke NiNi! <--*shot*)
bunnbunn's avatar
Maybe you should start with the Russia side first because you already have a song? :3 it sounds interesting...can't wait to see!

DID I JUST SEE GERMANY/AUSTRIA/PRUSSIA IN
THIS JOURNAL

Dogs! I think I read the first volume at AX. Seems like I should catch up. XD

@_@...that's a lot of hw...what kind of class/credits do you get for it?

ASLFKHG AUSTRIA!BRUNO XDD
AND WTF UNCENSORED SINGING...wat...WAT

Did you want the Chinese song to be more traditional (like a poem almost) or can any song do?
kagami222's avatar
kagami222Student Filmographer
maybe...XD China-side makes Russia look like a bastard.. :\

OHYES YOU DID, ünf~

One's for Honor's credit (mandatory poo), another's for Globalization (I don't even need this...)

WELL I DIDN'T WANT TO LOOK TOO HARD, BUT IT WAS DEFINITELY SINGING.....

Any and ALL!! Choices are good~ It would be easier to work with if there was a variety of feelings in it..you know, instead of like one gigantic angst song or something, if there was also a happy part and a mad part or something..
bunnbunn's avatar
Oh! Okay XD
I found a few songs from [link]

Here's 'Our Memory' by Shiva Lee [link]
the translation/lyrics: [link]

and I liked 'Fine July 7th' by Evonne Hsu [link]
It. Contains. SNOW ;_;
the vid is subbed...but I can't find the English lyrics >:
I reply more if I find anything else XD (dammit, msn why you hate me @_@)

kagami222Student Filmographer
OH MY GOD, "FINE JULY 7TH" WOULD BE AWESOMELY PERFECT..IF, IF ONLY...THERE WAS ACTUALLY SOMETHING HISTORICALLY IMPORTANT THAT HAPPENED ON THAT DAY. I searched wiki and found..7/7, the Battle of Luguo Bridge - the start of the SINO-JAPANESE WAR. dljglfsjs If only it was Sino-RUSSIAN war it would be so damn perfect....URRAAAGGGGHHHHHHHHH......and I'm not making Kiku/Yao doujinshi either >:T

As for the first one, it kinda makes Yao sound like a pansy... |D
bunnbunn's avatar
INORITE I GOT CHILLS WATCHING IT WITH RED TINTED GLASSES
I thought the idea of the song was romantic enough, like:

It snows the day Russia leaves -- in the middle of summer.

XD but yeah...it would be really cool if something actually happened...I saw the Russia Revolution on the wiki article but...@_@ it has nothing to do with China!

But, reading about foreign involvement in this article ([link])#Foreign_involvement) about the second Sino-Japanese war, the one that started 7/7/37, it says that the USSR wanted to keep China in the war against Japan because Japan entered the Anti-Comintern Pact with Germany against the USSR, and the USSR didn't want Japan invading Siberia...but it also lead to the Sino-Soviet nonaggression pact and uh, THAT GOES AGAINST EVERYTHING YOU'RE GOING FOR? X_X maybe you could use the date as a flashback kind of thing, Yao remembering when times were good between them...
(should we move this to gmail? XD)

...HAHA IT REALLY DOES

kagami222Student Filmographer
lol, I don't really care just feel free to message any way. XDDD
The thing with that song is that it mentions the date TOO OFTEN so that it becomes a central point. If it were just once, I could use the flashback thing, but not when it's mentioned so many times...

Right now I'm looking through some Jay Chou lyrics. They're actually quite flexible so it seems like they'll be easy to work with..
bunnbunn's avatar
XD I just felt like I was being too spammy...
I think I meant it differently but I realized I don't know what you have planned ><; so nvm.

and not really related but. This is the cutest thing EVAR [link]
kagami222's avatar
kagami222Student Filmographer
lol dawww, omg so cute....I lost it, please give me another one. 8T

Speaking of which, did you see this one too? 8DDD [link]
xblkdragonx's avatar
Hmm.. how about this song [link] <<<song by a Hong Kong artist but it's in mandarin.

Chinese Lyrics/Pinyin/English translation here: [link]

(btw that song is a chinese remake of Take Me To Your Heart by Michael Learns To Rock)

whoooo can't wait to read ur doujin

(I also wanted to suggest Waiting For Your Return but lol it's soooo old and nowadays ppl think it's a horror song. It's not I tell you!)
kagami222's avatar
kagami222Student Filmographer
ah..~ That's a good song, but I feel like it's more from Ivan's POV (I already have one for that, so I'm looking more for one from Yao's POV)

and loool, people think Waiting For Your Return is a horror song?! It doesn't sound that bad...I think....
