Bem visto, deixa cá mudar…
Having seen my quite old, very embarrassing work floating around tumblr (via qualityhetalia - thank you for reblogging my stuff, by the way!)… this is the “updated” version (the same as the one I uploaded to deviantArt over a year ago).
Yes, I like Austria x Hungary*. No, I still cannot draw people, interiors, crowd scenes, or chandeliers.
*…Not as much as I like Prussia —-> Hungary, though.** /bricked
**more on this next year (at the rate I’m going).
"Really? Well, on my planet, we have a legend about people like you. It’s called Footloose. And in it, a great hero, named Kevin Bacon, teaches an entire city full of people with sticks up their butts that, dancing, well, is the greatest thing there is."
I loved that quote, and had to draw him in said great hero’s suit.

One of the things that is really notable about Moscow and yet not many people outside Russia know about, is how gorgeous the Moscow metro is.
These photos? That’s what the metro stations look like.
They’re called the “People’s palaces of Moscow” or else “Underground palaces,” and they were built during the Soviet era on the Communist idea that art and beauty should belong to the people rather than only being available in the houses of nobles.
These photos show just some of the metro’s attractions. There are many more mosaics, statues, etc, placed throughout.
And the metro is always this clean.
In addition to being beautiful, it is incredibly functional. It gets you pretty much everywhere in Moscow, and the trains run at intervals of every three minutes or less. At peak times, they run every 90 seconds. You never have to worry about missing a train, because the next one will come almost immediately.
Not always of course. In the late evening or early morning hours, you may have to wait as long as five whole minutes for a train. They’re also super easy to navigate.
We Russians are pretty proud of our metro system.
OH o///v///o thank you!
