'course I like the guy we helped each other a LOT through times, like this one time England CAME TO MY PLACE AFTERWARDS ONLY TO KICK US, THAT ASSHOLE // Ireland
Oh you’re right, I’m sorry, I just thought I should do something because YOU WERE HELPING HIM, DUMBASSS // England
[[The Spanish Armada in Ireland : in 1588, Phillip II sent his armada to invade England. However, the spanish were defeated, and decided to head back home through the North Atlantic. Of course, they didn’t plan the violent storms that made them CRASH on the west coast of Ireland. Because of it, English government freaked out, thinking the irish who were being conquered at the time would join the spanish. Yet, when they realized the armada crashed, so Fitzwilliam just ordered that all spaniards be captured and hanged, while anyone helping them be tortured and charged as a traitor to the Crown. From England with love.]]
I got my laptop back today and the first thing I do is draw GoT AU dudes.
Prince Antonio Martell, younger brother to the ruling Princess of Dorne, and his swordmaster Joham Storm, rumoured to be his paramour.
I wanted to contrast with this the two music types, and with that the spirit of the two countries. I hope the ladies can also be at least a little recognizable.
Jacket is based on this
I just thought it’d look really cool!
King Phillip II of Spain, Phillip I of Portugal, during the Iberian Union, in which he ruled both countries. Phillip was the heir to the Portuguese throne after the Death of King Sebastian of Portugal, who died without children.
I think I unintentionally made Portugal look younger than Spain orz, though it should be the opposite. I thought of this while on the Subway, and decided I wanted to try portraying Portugal and Spain like a proper Union under the same King, as opposed to an unwilling Portugal under Spanish control. See kids, this is what happens when you act all clever and marry off your royals to the point where your only heir is spanish. I have a feeling Portugal was hoping that Spain would be in the heirless situation and it ended up being him instead. The clothes might be innacurate ;u; I used Velazquez paintings as reference, but the cloaks were a bit too dark for me to figure out, and I was in a hurry drawing this.
Spain: “Er it popped again!”
I loved his shirt so much I had to draw this. Romano is just tired of the walking fashion disaster. Lux is messing around with his older brother by copying his hairstyle.
It’s become a pretty long Halloween. Hahahaha.
Even when the main story ends,
the whole month of November might end up with an atmosphere of Halloween
from the requests and chibi-characters and omake manga↓ lineup.
Today, I’ll keep doing the requests and manga updates starting around 11.
