Once upon a time - USUK by maiyeng Once upon a time - USUK by maiyeng
2 princes attempting to rescue a princess.

This was drawn earlier in the year. Some of you may have seen it already on tumblr and the USxUK LJ comm.
First pic was done for Sweetheart week. The rest are follow ups: First meeting, getting along, beaten to it, mission failed, and happy ending.

1. cute comic~ I love England's outfit~ (though isn't it a more...ahem...German empire - based outfit? xD)

2. Is the "princess" fem!Austria, by any chance?~ And her "prince" male!Hungary? 'Cause it sure looks like it :D
Reply
:iconmaiyeng:
maiyeng Featured By Owner Nov 2, 2012
Thank you!
1) Really? The outfit is somewhat on Prince Alfred Duke of Edinburgh. Maybe it's the colours.
2) Yes! Since last year's Halloween comic, Hima has Austria dressed as a Princess and Hungary dressed as a Prince. :D

Welcome~
1) Woops. I just thought of Archduke Franz Josef of Austria and Wilhelm, the first Emperor of Germany...though maybe it was just "style" in all countries back then~
2) Austria is so un-manly. But he makes good pastry! :D But wait...are the two genderbent or not? xD

:iconmaiyeng:
maiyeng Featured By Owner Nov 2, 2012
1) It's ok. I guess it must have been. :)
2) Austria is pretty much like a princess. Heck, Germany looks after him. XD; He is definitely female, but Hungary I intended to be female too. Though a lot of ppl see her as genderbent here, and I'm cool with that too.

I wouldn't say that to a full-fledged Austrian if I were you~ Ever since the Dualism, we're sensitive and get cranky whenever the fact Germany is stronger than us is mentioned xD Yaay, femslash! :D BTW I've always wanted to ask, how did you learn to draw the characters exactly like in the show, just...better? xD And, last question,what are your ships? :D
Reply
:iconmaiyeng:
maiyeng Featured By Owner Nov 8, 2012
Oh, don't worry about that. I'm just basing this on the characters, not the actual countries since the comics aren't the be all and tell all of facts. I understand how you feel.
I did start from drawing from the show, but moved on to use the comics as reference since the artist himself has improved a lot in his art style. XD
Uh, ships are USUK, SuFin, SpaRom.

Oh no, I really don't mind,I make fun of Austrians a lot as well xD Just...other Austrians might not be so humorous~ Roddy is very much fit to represent us - conservative to the bone but in the name of laziness, we'll do whatever! :D
Your art is awesome, I think it's cool you can copy it so exactly!
I...should've been able to guess those xD They're more or less the pairings most people ship~ They're the cutest pairings :3

:iconmaiyeng:
maiyeng Featured By Owner Nov 20, 2012
Haha, that's good to know. :) I haven't visited Austria personally, but from what I've seen of it, it looks like a lovely place to visit.
Thanks! Though there are a couple of artists here on dA who draw very closely to Hima's style that it looks much like it. Funny thing is their art gets leaked onto tumblr by people confusing it for official art. XD;
Yes, it's pretty much the common pairings. How about you?

I absolutely love the colors in the first and last panels and how the characters came out along with their outfits. That background in the last panel is another big strength, and I really like how the lines and shading came out as well.
