Another one for Comic Fiesta goods.
Once when I was deeply engrossed with Hetalia (still am though, although not as crazy as I used to be), I created a whole bunch of ASEAN OCs (all 8 of 10 members of it, since Himaruya has created Thailand and Vietnam) and made the series SEA Gakuen. I’ve been itching to publish a doujin book based on these characters but feeling reluctant because, well, if I want to categorized it as Hetalia doujinshi, it contains more OCs than the canon characters and personally I’m not really fond of too much OCs in fanworks. So, after much brainstorming with my friends, I decided to turn this OCs into an original series of my own, with tremendous help from the wonderful starstray.
New settings and concepts have been reinvented, and the SEA Gakuen now has been reborn into the aptly named original series: United World Academy (well, excuse me), with focus on characters from ASEAN countries and their interactions with characters from other countries. There are also new designs for characters from Thailand and Vietnam which I will reveal later on.
The inaugural pilot edition of this original doujin book will be sold at the upcoming Comic Fiesta.
PS: Starstray colored most of the characters and I helped with the background, damn I feel my skills are deteriorating somewhat. Must practice harder.
Okay, I was cheating and this is actually a really old picture, but I deemed this is a good opportunity to post this one, because:
Happy Birthday Indonesia!
May you live long and prosper <3
Ridiculous hat was actually a part of Indonesia’s old military uniform from War of Independence era. I think I drew this in response of the movie Merah Putih back in 2009? I guess.
Prepare for an incoming influx of sketches, bb!
Surprisingly Brunei got quite a number of fans lately, I’m so happy for her! *motherly tears*
Sometimes I feel bad for Brunei, because much like the fate of Canada in Hetalia, she was often forgotten when people were asked about the countries in ASEAN grouping. Maybe because she’s indeed really, really, quiet. But that’s okay, we still love you, honey.
For this mysterious anon, Brunei says:
Posting up colored picture like a boss! Though this is not finished yet, there’s still some detail I’d like to add later.
FYI, I do know CNY has already passed long time ago, I just felt like drawing it. OK jk this was originally for CNY post before rl got in the way, since I already made the base so why not, udah kadung bikin ya terusin aja :P
Happy Valentine’s Day guys! Let’s celebrate it with corniest mock teen flick movie poster ever. With corny layout and corny title.
Gosh, I wonder what the heck did I drink last night, how did I come up with idea like this for Valentine pic I just can’t- *__* I even thought up the whole storyline for this schijt which brought me to another dilemma, but I’ll talk about it in another post.
(I wonder now, should I tell you guys the synopsis? Should I? Should I? Nah, I don’t wanna ruin your Valentines with the horror of possible mindfuckery after reading it).
Now that I acquire more free time lately, it’s time to pay off some debts I’ve put on hold due to irl cockblocking. Starstray, if you think I only got this much for ASEAN then be prepared for incoming posts bb, ‘cos I’m on the roll!!
‘Sahabat Jadi Cinta’ (Indonesian) could be freely interpreted into ‘From (just) Friends Become Lovers’. I took it from a song with the same title by Zigaz, a local band, which lately become my earworm since my neighbor put it in their stereo on loop -__-;
