I finally got ideas for a Russia/China doujinshi!
Jumping right in to new projects!
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!!
It is going to be a serious story
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!!
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....
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.
(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
- 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)
 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
