Fun with Budgies! by Gamma-Wings Fun with Budgies! by Gamma-Wings
*Before this becomes a ramped mistake, this guy is not the budgie president but rather her servant.*

Say hello to the meek little budgerigar servant who works under Albana Pavor, the budgie president. His job is to follow her around, serve her whenever she's too lazy to do something "mundane", and to act like an idea board, but he has no real power over her thoughts or anything politics related. He's also posing with a cartoon parrot, which is likely some children's mascot, for a possible propaganda poster exclaiming just how great Wellensittar is. Or, why Albana needs to become empress. Take your pick. 

I needed any drawing for the month of March, and since I'm unlikely to draw much of anything because I'm generally tired and sick, I thought that something simple like this would do. Besides, I'm liking this guy's colour scheme/ design.

It's nice that Albana has a servant here. I like the red cape he has as well as posing with the mascot. It works well as a propoganda poster.

Such a lovely picture.

I like how simple and clean the robot on the wing looks compared to his very detailed cloak. Meow :3

Thank you! I'm glad you like it. Yes I thought the contrast in styles would be interesting. 
Long time no see, I was wondering whether you'd return or not.

The cartoon parrot is just fantastic haha, adorable! Anyway, good work on this. I really like how you drew the eyes, in particular the irises.

Death metal? I'm not much of a fan of it, furthermore I haven't listened it much.
Industrial metal? I like it.

I can't say I found any pure death metal songs I like, but my favourite band (Scar Symmetry) is melodic death. 
I know only two songs as I haven't explored that category yet, both I really like though.

Yet another cute propaganda from such a sassy president. :XD: The thing that I noticed the most here are his eyes and his little curly hair. His eyes are brilliantly colored in metallic grey. And, you said that his curly hair is just an accident, but I think it should be connected to his idea board role? And well, judging by his expression, I can say that he's not impressed when he have to pose with that little robotic mascot, I presume?

Haha yea, she ordered another propaganda poster to be done as the more advertisement you get the better. Thank you, I loved drawing the eyes. I enjoy putting life into them personally, and I'm glad you liked the colouring. The curly hair might have a deeper story idea attached to it. Yea he's definitely not amused, he'd much rather do something else but orders are orders. The robot mascot was likely drawn in later, like how we often draw in cartoon things after taking a photo into our advertisements and such.

Such a contrast between him and the mascot. I think it's really cute.
He seems nice but by the looks of it he's not really happy. Perhaps too much work is laid on him constantly

Yea, I noticed that contrast when I started drawing the mascot and I liked it, so I decided to keep it this way. Thank you!
Haha yea, maybe he is a little pissed. Perhaps he doesn't enjoy having his picture taken. :XD:

Cute, cartoony propaganda. That is World War propaganda all over again, though not with the xenophobic tendencies that basically dehumanized certain ethnical groups (and none were innocent), and more with self-glorification... essentially what today's politics in some places look like. It basically blands together the worst of the old with the worst of the new. But heck, that cloack on that servant just looks pretty cool. I would definitely say he is someone, who can both show humble demeanor and and a cruel, cold side that is basically perfect for a badguy's assistant. He stands out, but not too much.

:icongamma-wings:
Gamma-Wings Featured By Owner Mar 24, 2016  Hobbyist Digital Artist
That it certainly is. Oh the budgies have a habit of creating a ton of propaganda, always have. Though they're more concerned about just glorifying themselves, and saying how they're the one race who is worthy to lead. So unlike the World Wars, it's highly unlikely they'd actually demonize any group... as they have no real reason to. Ha, in a sense it does then... blend the worst of the old and the new worlds. And, perhaps in more ways than just propaganda posters. Thanks, I think the cloak turned out pretty cool too. Hmm, you did get pretty close to his personality actually. I won't say much else about him, though. Yes, it is clear he's one heck of an assistant but for his purposes it's best he not stand out much.

I love your cartoon budgie style.  He has pretty eyes.  He looks gray or maybe anthracite (rare mutation that is dark gray almost black) to me.  He might have to give cartoon bird a good nip.  His cape is nice too.

I love the juxtaposition of styles between the cartoon mascot and the budgie servant. I could be imagining it, but he looks almost vaguely annoyed at having the cartoon on his shoulder. That one little curl on his head is adorable :)

Thank you! I noticed that contrast when drawing the mascot, and loved it so I decided to keep it that way. Hehe, maybe he is... or he just hates having his picture taken. Other people have pointed it out, so you're not really imagining it. Thanks, I find the curl amusing personally.

he is a servant fit for the president. I love the regal look with his expression, and this is very well done for a simple drawing.

Ha, yes that he is. :D Thank you, glad you think he looks quite regal. I always try to make my stand alone art look good, regardless of how "complicated" I consider it to be. I care less about simple sketches, though even then I try to make them relatively good. So, I'm glad you think this turned out well.

Thank you. But if you read the description carefully you'd see he's actually the servant to her and not actually the president.
