The Lily Among Roses by ScarletteDiscord The Lily Among Roses by ScarletteDiscord
An image of Matthew I had in my head and decided to draw. He's based loosely on Kitak's Matthew, but it's not necessarily him, just inspired ;)

The title is both literal and metaphorical. It refers to the bouquet in his hands which has a lily and two roses but can also be a reference to Matthew himself (a colony of French origin in the British Empire), so the flowers can represent the characters themselves: Alfred and Arthur, the two roses, and Matthew, the lily.

That outfit he's wearing kinda makes him look like France almost. Almost...
Beautiful concept though. :nod:

Thank you very much :)

As for the outfit, since he was a French colony at one point in time, it would make sense for him to look a little bit like France, at least that was what I was trying to portray here. I hope I didn't confuse you too much :)

Of course! Well, Canada does have some French influence (especially in Quebec), and he kind of looks like France too. Must be his "sexy (French) 'air"...:giggle:

Hey Scarlette, I saw this post recently about someone who's taking requests for Hetalia-themed Journal skins and seeing as I'd just gotten a Premium Membership, I thought I'd ask for one as well.

I would like to ask the artist to use your picture here, but neither of us will go ahead on this if you don't want us to. So, if you could please get back to me on that, I'd really appreciate it - thanks!

Here's the post I was referring to if you'd like to check the person's creds first: [link]

Yes! I think this would look awesome! :D Never even thought about this being a journal skin, but if they think it'll work, go for it. Can't wait to see what it'll look like!

This is gorgeous! I love the detail you put into the clothes, and the flowers are very well done (can't draw flowers to save her life :iconorzplz: ). I also really like the colors you used, particularly for the ribbons. :) And I agree with Pineapple; I want to hug him. :3

Thanks! :D

Thank my new tablet for those details ;) My old pen could only do one brush size and couldn't simulate pen pressure like this new one. I was able to get all kinds of little things done.

I wasn't sure about those ribbons, glad you like them :)

Mattie is quite huggable isn't he? lol
