SatW Map Pool by Waffle-the-kitten SatW Map Pool by Waffle-the-kitten
This is my fanart about the Scandinavia and the World comics by Humon!
I really love those comics, so I decided to make my own drawing...
It feats Iceland, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Denmark and Åland (in the picture Sweden dropped). My idea was to place them in a way that would remind the actual geografic positions of the countries, naturally I ignored Russia and Germany (as well as Estonia and the rest of Europe and all...) otherwise they would be mostly out of the picture, and also I wanted it to include just the five (six) main characters. The reasons why I ignored the Faroe Islands are 1- It would have to be a photography or something like that, just like Åland, because they're also very small. 2- As I said, I wanted to draw just the main characters, and Faroe would be somewhat weird there...
Naturally I could not use the right proportion (of the countries), I think the reasons are quite obvious.
The situation here is simple: they are all relaxing on the sea, Iceland has a shiny and clear surfboard, and he took one of his cute "pets" with him. Norway got distracted by a dragonfly and started movin on his inflatable mat, which caused it to hit Sweden's mat. As Sweden was very distracted by his boyfriend's photo he got startled by the bumb and accidentally dropped it (and it was taken by the wind, making him desperate). Sweden's matt hits Finland's head and he gets mad (what a surprise), now he's got a pin on his hand (I wonder what he'll do with it...).
While all this happens, Denmark is just watching and laughing on his float (almost touching Sweden, which is a geografic reference).
I chose arm floats for Finland because I thought it was the most "likeIgiveaF***" kind of float, and it kind of fits him. I was initially going to drawn him just floating, with no float or matt... But I thought it would look weird and be hard to draw.
I used Paint Tool Say for the whole drawing, got the colors used on the original website comics, and the sea texture was a mix of some sea pictures that I've found on the web, that I merged and edited (blur, Hue, contrast and all), then I've drawn the little "waves" showing the movement of the characters.
I hope you liked this Fanart! I must leave a link for those who don't know SatW comics yet:

what's the name?
If I ever make a Marco drawing (which is very probable), I may tag you. I only have a few Sonata Arctica drawings so far, but there is a "Marco Easter Egg" on the audience in this one:

This is great! How long will it take for Finland to go over the edge...

The drifting photo of Åland was a nice touch, too.

I like the details, and notice that Iceland has one of his demons on his surfboard too!
