bastafunk:

Y’ello everyone! Take some of the fancomic’s artwork/development for your viewing pleasure :> Still have much to draw and write, but things are going steady! Sorry for the long-post but…it seems that photo-posts don’t deserve a ‘read more’ tool…right. Great.

FINALLY, MOTHER OF GOD I WAS SO TIRED OF DOING THIS ILLUSTRATION.

I don’t think I remember doing a picture with so many different noses, hairstyles and body-shapes in it. i’m glad they are ‘just’ 13 because I was starting to lack ideas for those noses! GEEESH.

And the hardest part of the character design was to make them all different but still similar enough to look like they are bothers. As if designing independent characters wasn’t hard enough >_>

I have a love-hate relationship with group pictures. Hate to do them, love to see the final results. *looks at the fruits of her labor* Yup, I dig it.

Okay! So this is my headcanon for the Westergard family! 

It is rather usual for everyone to assume that Hans’s brothers were cruel and bullied him frequently, but…sometimes neglect is the worse kind of abuse. Physical pain can be more tolerable than psychological pain, and I think that his brothers didn’t exclude Hans from their lives with the actual purpose of hurting him. I really think that they all suffered from the same predicament: the constant hunt to find their purpose in the kingdom of the Southern Isles. The problem was that Hans came too late, and when he wanted to show that he was good enough and could be of value, all the positions were taken. So, let’s analyse each brother, one by one.

While discussing the plot with Nanofemur, she stipulated that their mother could have started ‘procreating’  at a really young age (like 16-17), which would give us a doable pregnancy-timeline for 23 years (without risking her life…much).

I - [Age: 46] The older brother, king of the Southern Isles. He was the busiest of all brothers, expectations and future responsibilities already piled on his shoulders at young age. He’s a very family-oriented person, and wished to spend more time with his brothers, [e]specially Hans (he could see how the constant solitude was affecting him, but every time he tried to reach for him something always came between them - responsibilities, lessons, trips, misadventures). He has a really strong connection with the II brother, accustomed to playing with and taking care of him when they were infants. He’s very kind and patient, and avoids drastic measures at all costs.

II - [Age: 44] The second son, the spare and the adviser. He couldn’t care less about knowing how to rule a kingdom, if it wasn’t for the constant company of his older brother. He rules right next to him, as his most trusted adviser. Still, he doesn’t like his royal responsibilities and has a terrible jealousy of his VIII brother. He wanted to sail, live a carefree life…but he will never admit it publicly. He knows that his brothers would do anything to be in his shoes, and he feels like he’s betraying them by having such selfish thoughts. So, to hide those feelings, he adopted a joyful/joker posture (which annoys THE HELL out of the III brother).

III - [Age: 40] The Admiral. He’s the most uptight, serious and responsible of all brothers (the II brother says that he lives his life too seriously, and should just relax & have some much-needed fun). He controls the Southern Isles naval fleet, and has been awarded several times for his impressive deeds at high-seas (his brothers joke with the fact that he seems to be collecting medals like stamps, which will result in a very deadly look at each of them and a “If you were more inclined in doing your jobs correctly, I wouldn’t be the only one to ‘collect’ distinctions.”) Unlike the first son, he has a very fiery temper, and does not tolerate lack of etiquette or any type of scandal associated with their family. 

IV - [Age: 38] The entrepreneur. Behind that joyful and playful posture, resides a very seductive man. He’s adored by several noble ladies, almost competing with his VI brother’s misadventures. Still, his heart was once stolen by the art of trade and business, followed by the pleasure of eating and drinking. He finds great joy in selling the finest goods from his country. He loves to tell jokes, and spends a good amount of time with his V brother (I think their mutual love for business / profit brought them together like butter and bread). He really dislikes grumpy people, but tries to dig into their shells every time.

V - [Age: 36] The accountant. This brother loves order, logic, perfection and silence. Since he was very young he was always of frail health, which made him stay indoors often. He soon grew to enjoy it, due to his terrible allergies (pollen, dust and some types of food). Even if he likes flowers, he can’t stand to be next to them without going into a sneezing spree. Being a brilliant mathematician, he realized that he could aid greatly by managing the kingdom’s finances and investments. One of his favorite hobbies is to play chess. He’s also very austere and shy, making his conversations with the opposite gender something hilarious to behold.

VI - [Age: 34] The womanizer & external-affairs brother. He’s the kingdom’s socialite - he loves parties, chatting, dancing - but he’s also a very conniving person…able to steal secrets very easily. He doesn’t take his responsibilities very seriously, but he’s able to complete his duties without much effort. He has a strong connection with his VII brother, even if they are constantly bickering about the way he deals with his life (a man of his position and skill cannot have emotional ties with any woman, something that his brother strongly believes). Note: I wanted him to have an affair with an exotic foreign woman (maybe indian?), one of the few that didn’t fall for his charms.

VII - [Age: 33] The internal-affairs prince. Just like the king, he has a very kind and easygoing attitude. Much like Hans, this prince faced the lack of a purpose in his home, so he constantly visited the town’s folk (partying with them at taverns, town’s balls,…) to feel more accompanied and happy (he liked being a prince, but the simple life of his servants attracted him greatly).This behavior didn’t go unnoticed by his older brother, who updated his status due to the strong connections he made with their underlings. He would talk with them personally, hear their concerns, avoid commotions and forward all the important information directly to the king. As stated above, he doesn’t approve of his VI brother’s lifestyle, so every time he would cross the line, the prince would play the biggest pranks or disturb his ‘Don Juan’ advances. Note:he will most certainly fall in love with a commoner :>

VIII - [Age: 30] The adventurer & bounty-hunter. Probably the prince with the most ‘exotic’ profession. He graduated from his naval academy with 5 stars, but working with the fleet had too many rules and limitations…and he wanted feel like he made a difference. More of an action-man than a strategist, he would frequently risk his life trying to hit the core of the problem instead of working around it. That’s when he realized that he would be happier sailing to wherever he saw fit, with his own set of rules, tracking down & hunting problematic fellows that disturbed the balance of their kingdom. After some voyages, he would meet his VII, II and IV brothers and tell them all of his adventures (I get the feeling that he must love to tell stories). 

IX - [Age: 27] The vet. He’s like a male version of Snow White, the perfect gender-bending of a Disney princess: he seems to attract all types of animals, and has a very melodic voice. At a very young age, he demonstrated his affinity towards his pets; they were his constant company, pushing the loneliness away. Once Hans was given his first horse, Sitron, he would sometimes teach his brother tricks and tell him how he should take care of him (he even healed him when he was sick). Years later, he would state that he wanted to be a vet, but his III brother wouldn’t allow it (having bounty-hunter in the family was scandalous enough). After much discussion, the only way for him to follow his dream was: if he studied to be a doctor, his brother would allow him to expand his knowledge and take a specialization in animal care. Displeased but determined to follow his dream, he sailed away for several years and completed both courses with distinction. Note: He’s one of the few brothers who didn’t have a naval career.

X & XI - [Age: 26] The naval-twins. These brothers were partners-in-crime since…well, forever. They always had each other, so solitude never really hit them hard (just the knowledge of not being truly needed in the kingdom). Both enjoyed the naval life, so they stayed with their III brother for co-managing the royal fleet. They are both very mischievous, but their personalities are very different. One is more daring and smug, and the other humorous and gentle. They were two of the brothers who ignored Hans in the past, not because they didn’t like him, but simply because they loved to tease him (tricksters as they were…but being fair, I think they tricked all of their brothers). They had a bit of jealousy towards his strong relationship with their mother, and thus decided to pick on him more. The three youngsters are very alike, a similarity that Hans would gladly go without.

XII - [Age: 24] The musician & composer. Without a doubt, the GRUMPIEST of all brothers. He was the second prince to avoid going to the naval academy (rather unorthodox for a country surrounded by water and ships) because his main concern was music. Trying to avoid a tantrum from his III brother, much like the one that occurred with the IX prince (and aware of the difficulties of his youngest kin), he allowed it (much to the III son’s dismay). Unlike all his brothers, this prince fought solitude with notes, music sheets, practice and composition. Hans would try to talk to him or get closer…but to no avail, because he embraced the solitude as a gift, not a curse. Solitude made him better, improved his skill, and made him one of the most promising young musicians of his time. He was the third brother who ignored Hans for 2 years, but I assume that the only interaction that they got after that were casual mutual compliments. He enjoys the sound of birds chirping and some opera singers, finding them to be the most melodic natural sounds in existence.

XIII - [Age: 24] The unlucky son. So let’s summarize: he didn’t notice the first son’s advances to make him feel loved; all the other older brothers were too busy with their own affairs/dreams to pay attention to him; the vet was one of the only brothers who he actually spent a bit of time and bonded with, but due to the III son’s request he had to leave overseas for too long; the twins made his life a living hell when they were kids (and probably teased him when he was a teenager) and the musician never actually cared/wanted to spend time with him (or any of the other brothers, to be honest). His mother loved him greatly, but her health was very fragile, and when he was 10 she passed away, leaving him completely alone (which ultimately froze his heart and changed his personality).

A huge kissu-kissu for helping me with the beta-reading, Talia <3

Oh, and if anyone is interested, i can spare the lineart for some color-studies :D The comic will be duotone and i can’t waste any time doing things that won’t be relevant for the for it. So…just send your falcons to my askbox if you wish.

Stay Basted!

What I love about Bastafunk’s take on the Westergard family is that her 12 brothers are not complete bastards that have mistreated Hans all his life.

Not that I have something against that headcanon, it is just interesting to look at it from a different perspective.

Nikolai out of his uniform. Trying my hand at drawing this cutie because I draw stuff, and if I am writing a fic of course I am going to draw the main character. Obviously.
On that note, I am still writing the fic, I swear, you can ask bastafunk. It&#8217;s just not ready.
Anyway, Nikolai in a civilian attire (ignore the poor attempt at the clothing, it was not my main focus) with what I imagine to be the hairstyle hidden beneath the hat and what it might look like in a casual occasion.
Oh, and I am still trying to find a last name for him T^T please, suggestions are most welcome.

This is one of the many toughs that went through my mind during the betrayal scene, and it is one I haven&#8217;t seen out there yet.
Hans was unexpectedly decent for someone who was mercilessly crushing Anna&#8217;s illusion of him. Stay with me, let me explain why.
He leaned forward for the kiss and he stopped, well aware it would not work since he did not love her. He stopped and went for the full disclosure of the cruel truth.
By that point Hans was sure Anna was as good as dead so he revealed his cruelty, but he somehow chose not to kiss her. We could argue it was not worth trying, but why would Hans care about that when he did not care about Anna.
He could have kissed her and, upon &#8220;the true love&#8217;s kiss&#8221; not working, drop all his pretenses, leaving Anna in an even worse state because she had just kissed the man who was proclaiming to have never loved her. Imagine what having shared such tender moment with Hans would make her feel as he left her alone locking the door behind him.
Let it sink in.
Had Anna died, she would&#8217;ve done so feeling the flavor of his betrayal on her lips.
Had she lived, she would forever remember the taste of treachery of her (most certainly) first kiss.
In the end Hans not kissing Anna was the most decent thing he could have done, given it would be much crueler of him if he had. Of course he was still a cold blooded bastard, but I never denied that.

What about that is cute you fiend? Not saying I won’t do it, but I think more followers are needed before Hans allows me to remove his clothing. After all, he likes the attention but he aspires to be king.

Thoughts on Hanna - answers

frozen-heartburns reblogged this from bastafunk and added:

Definitely, I follow enough people to find Hanna things, but this pairing has a small fandom and a master comm would be would be nice

That was the main reason I though it to be a good idea.

sun-moon-and-talia reblogged this from bastafunk and added:

This sounds interesting, but how would it work? Would all the writers  have to be admins, or would there be a volunteer keeping the blog?

I was thinking a small group of admins. That way managing the posts, tags, submissions, asks and all that, would not be too much of a burden. Making the suggestion was also to see who would be interested.

weavingmemories answered: Oh man that would be awesome!! I don’t know if I could neatly organize anything to save my life though, but if anyone needs a helping hand??

Well, it will be a job for more than one person. I will let you know as soon as this starts becoming more than an idea (and I’m guessing it will).

prince-hans-pants said: Great idea! Let me know if there’s anything I can do to help get it started!

For now I’m just trying to see if people are interested. But I am counting you in if this goes forward.

secretarendelle reblogged this from sun-moon-and-talia and added:

I want to help with this. Or something.

One more on board. It is still just an idea, but if I get enough positive feedback I will come back to you.

Thoughts on Hanna

This is something that came up while chatting with bastafunk.

How nice would be to have a tumblr where we could find all things Hanna neatly compiled (with links to the authors), and where we could share head canons, brainstorm, suggest prompts and collaborate.

I apologize in advance for anyone I might forget (please let them know).

I don’t believe I would pick Frollo over anyone, really. I mean, I have a strong dislike for Gaston and even that wouldn’t make me pick Frollo. This is disturbing.

I know how you feel, but some people really like him for some reason…

He does have an amazing villain song, I will give him that, but the only thing I would want with him is distance.

I finished this weeks ago for a comics anthology some cool people at my school put together.  Chris Kindred asked me to contribute something because he is super nice.

I definitely learned a lot from this project!

Feel free to ask me stuff, maybe sharing why you have started following me, or anything else you are curious about (since I don’t share much). I will answer everyone, privately or publicly, whichever you prefer.  

Seriously, no one. This is kind of sad… should I just give up?

NOTE: Because of many people’s similar reaction to my previous post, I feel the need to clarify that this series isn’t intended to have a Hans-apologist kind of vibe. My purpose here is not to excuse his behaviour in the film or to get people to pity him. I just wanted to add a little bit of ‘depth’ where it was suggested there were stories behind his actions. I’m basically trying to figure out a possible background and progression that could explain why and how he was shaped into a villain, if we accept some villains are made rather than born. But I get some people want this character to be evil for the sake of being evil, and that is completely fine! So please don’t get too upset over these, keep in mind this is just my take on a hypothetic past, loosely based on hints from the movie and what Frozen directors have revealed so far.

Inspiration from rennydraws for the 8th panel and donc-desole for the last one.

The first part was beautiful and the second is even better.

The fourth panel is heartbreaking and the fifth, well, I spot the Ugly Duckling’s tale and is that a drawing of Arendelle’s royal family inside the drawer at the bottom?

Hans, the movie concepts based on this amazing edit of Wanderer above the Sea of Fog 

Just wanted to get back into the swing of things and practice (…after a rather long break due to technical difficulties) before jumping on the RotG bandwagon again 

References/Inspiration from Lisa Keene’s stunning work, Minkyu Lee’s Wicked, Beth Turnsek, David Kawena and credits to the bunch of tumblr users who came up with sad headcanons and analyses 

I loved this and not just because Hans’ is the subject.

The sequence is just stunning in terms of coloring and lighting. Story wise each piece is woven into a touching tale of the 13th prince’s solitude which just breaks your heart into a million of tiny pieces.
