Please think twice about using Real Life current events such as the Scottish Referendum as fodder for fan fiction, art, doujinshi, and whatnot. Especially if you are not Scottish.
It’s usually considered polite to wait at leastone year after an event has occurred before you create hetalia-themed fanwork about it. And even then you should tread carefully and make sure to listen to the people whose lives were directly impacted by the event.
Seriously, cut that shit out and stop giving the entire fandom a bad reputation.
There are a million and one ways to make art of paper (as we proved in our paper art post), but there’s one artist who recently caught our eye (again). Yulia Brodskaya, an artist and illustrator born in Moscow, creates stunning works of art using the quilled paper technique.
While quilled paper seems simple at first glance, we’ve never seen someone whose work matches Brodskaya’s in terms of detail, color and expressiveness. This art is create by rolling or bending strips of paper and gluing their side to the surface. This makes them essentially lines, but the paper’s width gives these “lines” a depth that 2d art can lack.
