And finally, the finished product! Russia still playing his balalaika and looking rather sentimental. And really, what is Russia without sunflowers and blood? It had
to be done.
Please ignore how fucked up that balalaika is. By the time I really recognized how horribly I drew it (I don't think there's a straight line in it, to be honest), it was about a week too late to fix without having to redo half of the picture. So I changed the design completely and tried to make it look better, and I think I did all right, but don't look at it for too long or you'll notice how cockeyed that thing is. How embarrassing.
I'm still kicking myself for not using better references when I drew the balalaika and Russia's hands, but you're only here to look at Russia, right? Right. And I realize how small the balalaika looks compared to Russia, but some balalaikas are pretty tiny and Russia is a pretty big guy, so take your pick.
By the way, I don't know where the hell this is either. Maybe a shed...where Russia keeps his sunflowers and...his...guns? Man, I have no idea. .___."
