Gilbird: A Peaceful Perch by In-Fewer-Words Gilbird: A Peaceful Perch by In-Fewer-Words
I drew this for :iconthe-european-hetalia:#The-European-Hetalia's Flower Contest.


The flower I chose was the Tiger Lily because it's just so freaking awesome and because someone said "tiger lily" and I don't have a favorite flower so this was as good as any... and since I couldn't imagine Prussia holding flowers I drew the next best thing. Gilbird is my all time favorite Hetalia character. He/she needs a little more love.

But since this contest theme was about flowers I decided to have the brightest and most "in focus" thing in the picture be the flower in the foreground. I wanted Gilbird to almost look like an afterthought here, like you were looking at the flowers and then realized after several long seconds, "Oh hey! It's Gilbird!" :iconyaygilbirdplz:

It took me far too long to figure out how to draw that really simple looking background but I've finished it now. In total this picture took me probably close to ten hours.

Also, it was drawn on 20 layers.... ENJOY!!:iconsparkelsplz::iconyaygilbirdplz::iconsparkelsplz:
