Fem! Spain is going to teach the little chibi Italies how to fly…by jumping off a cliff. Logic: Natural Instinct will take over. However I think this more or less traumatized them into never flying because it looked like mama just commited suicide. Austria is not happy about this. Don’t worry she survived.
Headcanon- Portugal taught her to fly just like that (i’ll make a follow up picture hopefully) I can’t draw wings and half assed the others obviously
I decided to try to try and define some different ways to do lighting and coloring in scenes, and (since I couldn’t find any of these types of references while I was working on this myself rip ;w;) I decided to put it together into a little chart!
Of course, there are definitely more extensive and detailed ways to do this sort of thing, this is a pretty good way of finding colors and such.
Below is a more detailed explanation of the above!
Just my base colors–the kind of thing that you’d just eyedrop off of a character guide or something.
Warm Outdoors lighting. Basically just the darker beige color on multiply for shadows, and then another off-white (I tinted it yellow) multiply layer to change the colors a little bit. The highlights are that beige color but with an overlay layer instead.
Cold Outdoors lighting. It’s the same as the above, but instead of yellows, they’re blues, with another color for the highlights. ovo
Red lighting, probably for stuff like a volcano scene or something with just really dramatic red lighting! I had to add in a general wash of dark red in another layer, as well as that kinda orangy color to denature the colors more (especially the green)
Blue lighting, particularly for underwater stuff. From bottom to top, those swatches are multiply, overlay, multiply, then overlay!
Green lighting, especially for some lab or sci-fi stuff! You could also probably add in a yellow gradient for more depth and it’d look fine.
Pinklighting. This is especially inspired by the general color palette of Alone Together, from Steven Universe! It has a very romantic and lively feel to it in my opinion lol
Orange lighting! Especially something like a sunset or something. You could also probably add a yellow gradient or shade with purple to get more into the dusk/twilight feeling.
Purple lighting. I’m picturing like, someone sneaking around at midnight in the dark-type lighting.
Indigo lighting! If the purple lighting is too intense, then I shifted the hues to more of a blue and lightened them considerably too!
Over-exposed lighting. I widened the highlights in the hair so that they would give off the illusion of washing out in the light, and the other highlights don’t really show up. I’ve noticed this happen a lot in Steven Universe recently (especially with the Diamonds) and I think it could also look really cool on general magical-glow scenes!
Character lighting! This is just how I shade my Hapsburg-family stuff. Feli and Eliza I just make all the shadows a muted yellow/green (respectively) and use a soft-light or overlay layer, and for everyone else, I do the same but with their own character colors. It’s not very realistic, but I like the feel of it a lot.
you know anna and elsa are sisters its scientifically frowned upon for you to ship them as more than friends/sisters its gross
I am aware they’re sisters. Scientifically, you say? I mean, technically they’re unable to reproduce so there’s nothing to be concerned about biologically as they wouldn’t have offspring, and therefore couldn’t adversely effect their future descendants. I think you mean socially frowned up, as incest is culturally taboo in many societies.
That being said, this is largely do to the fact that it is known to have negative repercussions on later generations if it persists, especially when spanning over multiple generations. Like in the case of the Hapsburg family. Mind you, for various reasons, it is also considered to be illicit behaviour because of religion; in the case of ancient Rome, for example, it’s considered nefas (against divine law).
It’s mostly just the stigma that surrounds it, seeing as much of the disgust and hate towards it stems from religious teachings and historical accounts. It is true that it can have adverse effects on future offspring, and there are many laws regarding it, but as it goes I think that any love - honest and true - between consenting adults is fine.
As long as both parties are aware of their actions, and are not harming anyone in any way, then all the power to them. Really, at its core, incest is just another ‘taboo’ in the same way homosexuality, bisexuality, pan-sexuality (or any other non-hetero-normative preferences) is still considered to be in many places.
In this case, I ship Elsanna, but only ever as consenting adults. I am aware they’re sisters, am aware the message in the film is preaching the strong bond between family, and the ability to believe in someone even when they cannot believe in themselves, but I also like to ship them romantically.
I respect your choice not to, anon, as I very much believe to each their own! Thank you for your time, and I hope you have a nice day.
Hi Kata. A family in the book im planning are descended from Greek mythology but aren't related to the Gods. They're my antagonists so they're rich, back stabby, greedy and full of hubris even towards their own kin. Im having trouble researching mortal Greek myths with families of people like that. Can you give me any suggestions? All I can think of is Sisyphus and I don't want to step on your toes!
Sorry this took so long to answer, I had to get all my notes in order. You wouldn’t be stepping on my toes, and you CANNOT GO WRONG with all the wrongness of the House of Aeolus. They are just totally fucked up from beginning to end and a lot of their most prominent members are on the Tartarus roll call.
Let’s do a brief overview, shall we?
Aeolus Punished his son Macareus and his daughter Canace for incest by throwing his grandson (their issue) out a window to be torn apart by dogs. Thus he was a kinslayer, possibly the greatest sin in Ancient Greece and went to Tartarus.
Sisyphus Son of Aeolus. Murdered house guests (one of the biggest no-nos in Ancient Greece as they were all about hospitality), raped his niece Tyro, tried to trick Persephone into releasing him from the underworld, got his wife Merope to skip certain funerary rites for him so he could con his way back to earth, trapped Thanatos in his own chains, captured Thanatos in a sack to keep death from happening. Ultimately punished by Persephone and currently stuck rolling a rock up a hill for eternity.
Salmoneus Brother of Sisyphus, son of Aeolus. Murdered his subjects by throwing lightning bolt shaped spears at them from his chariot, which he’d set up on a wooden platform to mimic thunder. Pretended to be Zeus, was subsequently struck down by him. In Tartarus, punishment not specified.
Athamas Due to serious and continued shaming and philandering, his first wife Ino convinced him to kill his son by another mother, Phrixus, by way of human sacrifice, but Phrixus was rescued at the last minute by a fairly complex deus ex machina. He was subsequently driven mad and murdered his legitimate son, Learchus.
Cretheus Fathered several sons and daughters and seems to be the only one of the four major sons of Aeolus who didn’t fuck up extraordinarily. He married his niece, Tyro, but that was something very common for royal Greek families who wanted to keep the bloodlines pure (and true of royal lineages before and after, ie. the 4-8th dynasties of Egypt, the Hapsburg family, etc.) Ever wonder where the term “blue blood” comes from? It’s because those of royal blood were so inbred that their skin was thin enough to see veins. Hence, blue blood.
Tyro Daughter of Salmoneus, wife of Cretheus, raped by Sisyphus who did so with the intent of begetting sons on her that would dethrone her father so Sisyphus could usurp his kingdom. When Tyro found out, she murdered her sons by him. She is the only singular female mentioned as a denizen of Tartarus (besides the Daenids).
Here’s a little aside to all this though: The Aeolic branch of the Greek nation was Thessalonian, their descendant rulers were kings of Boeotia, and stories about them function about the same in mythology as the explanations about the lines of Ishmael and Lot function in the Hebrew Torah. They’re not very flattering. Tales about the House of Aeolus were written by Athenian authors in Attica, who were almost constantly at war with the Boeotians in pre-classical and classical times.
In the same respect, the descendants of Isaac (Israel) were constantly at war with the descendants of Lot and Ishmael, so of course they would tell unflattering stories about the founders of those tribes (Ishmael was born from a sex slave of Abraham, Lot conceived his nation by incest with his daughters). By that same token, the most memorable and transcribed stories about the founders of the Aeolic branch of the Greek people would include their members all residing in Tartarus because those stories were written down by people who lived in Athens.
