[Art dump] The Aristocat + Princetalia

Or, a small art dump of half-finished projects with I-ran-out-of-creativity names.

Titles: Aristocat; Princetalia
Artist: sobdasha
Characters: Austria-cat, N. Italy-kitten, HRE-kitten; HRE, Chibitalia
Pairings: HRE/Chibitalia
Rating: G
Warnings: None
Description: Apparently I like my crossovers: Aristocat = Nekotalia + The Aristocats; Princetalia = Chibitalia arc + Le Petit Prince

So this first one you can blame on icon #27 from this post. At first glance I mistook Hungary-cat for a N. Italy-kitten, and promptly gave a joyous squeal of "It's just like that scales and arpeggios song!" quickly followed by an equally silly proclamation: "From now on instead of Austria-cat I'm going to call him The Aristocat!" But then I realized that it was actually Hungary-cat, and that I still needed my crossover, and I was forced to draw it myself.

Aristocat - Scales and arpeggios:


You must learn your scales and your arpeggios

No, I don't know of this "perspective" you speak of. And yes, the piano is supported by magic, Aristocat is just that amazing.

Aristocat - Practicing:


If you're faithful to your daily practicing you will find your progress is encouraging

Practice = stalking ??

The correct way to draw a Holy Roman Empire-kitten is to shrink a Germany-cat and then put a yellow ribbon on him, Y/Y?

In theory there are more pictures that can fit in this series, but so far I've been too lazy to draw them.

This next one is not a complete storyline, but apparently I can't resist trying to cross everyone in Hetalia over with Le Petit Prince.

Princetalia - Petite vie mélancolique:


ta petite vie mélancolique
your melancholy little life


The background shading was a last-minute compromise experiment, which hopefully turned out well.

(I also scanned this in black and white, because I can't decide between the two versions; this one preserves the softness of the background and keeps it from overwhelming the picture, but the black and white has a charming crispness to it)

Princetalia - Ramona soigneusement ses volcans:


Il ramona soigneusement ses volcans
He carefully swept his volcanoes


Technically since I just made Chibitalia the rose in the preceding picture, he shouldn't be the one to sweep the volcanoes. But with all the sweeping Chibitalia does, how can I possibly resist this image?

(I also scanned this in black and white, because I can't decide between the two versions; this one preserves the softness of the background and keeps it from overwhelming the picture, but the black and white has a charming crispness to it)

And then for a bonus, because they both ended up on the same paper, here's the sheet of reference-sketching I used:


As it turns out, if I not only get a reference image, but also try drawing it on scrap paper first, it actually improves my drawing ability. If only I could have gotten that through my head years earlier.

The images are from:
- That blog image
- Icon #27
- That other blog image
- Lei Chi Sono Dolci 01, for both Chibitalia and HRE
The other four scribbles are debating how I might color in the background without messing the picture up

I could also probably add at least one other picture to this series, but--lazy.
