You know I need to stop getting urges to write a fic for whenever I draw a new pic like this which has no reason or purpose for being drawn, I just...draw it.
Spain and Belgium this time; another steam punk theme. I was going to have Romano in the background being all "...the fuck is going on here?" but his lineart accidently got cut off when I cropped the picture at an earlier stage so I had to leave him but I think it's pretty good how it is. XD I think the best thing about this picture is Spain's face. He looks like he's about to cry.
So yeah, this actually does give me a good idea for a fic. Spain is a bit overly obsessed with wanting to make a some sort of invention, or anything that would make people stop and pay attention to him for once since he's not that type of guy in this world. So he tries to make a turtle...and it's breathing smoke, hence the title, "It's not supposed to do that..." XD Yeah, Spainey isn't the best to come up with brilliant ideas. But what I like best about him in this story is no matter how bad or clutzy he is, he's extremely determined. He doesn't care an ounce about finding love or socializing with friends, he just wants to reach his dream.
Get famous, live in a tomato house.
I played about a lot with the lighting at the end. Background is simple, there wasn't any need for anything complicated. I'm starting to use this new style of shading which I absolutely LOVE. I think I'm going to use it from now on. I just love how Spain turned out. Bel...not so much. I think she was okay, I just need to work on her face. Then again I did redo Spain's face like 10 times.
I started the lineart two days ago and it's actually taken me since then to get it finished. So that's almost 2 days, but I was getting distracted a lot. Either way I'm happy with how it turned out. The shading makes them look much more 3D if you know what I mean which is what I like about the shading style.
