Stan and Ian Tutorial - step by step by TeeJay87


Follow-up from tutorial series:






with my OCs Stan and Ian, who can be seen in couple of my older works. They don't have quadrupedal versions, though it's possible they may have such ones.

Ian is mentioning old Arab proverb we adapted into Polish through cultural exchange with Osman empire, somewhere around 16th Century.

Stan and Ian belong to me.

alitta2Another great tutorial, and I agree with the proverb! :)
Intersting that I've never heard the proverb before, even that we shared culture with the Osmans at least for 150 years (more precisely, they've brought it themselves and forced it on people of  territories annexed by the Osman Empire). As thinking about that present time, the Osman-era was also as useful for our culture as it was demoralizing that the third part of the Hungarian Kingdom was under their control. The same analogy can be concluded for the Austro-Hungarian Monarchy-era anyway, if we only look the cultural effects.

TeeJay87Our national weapon , known here as "Batorówka" (after Istvan Batory, duke of Hungary and king of Poland 1576-1586) , was definitely based on Turkish kilij , the same can be said about outfits worn by our noblemen between 16th Century and 1795

Even some of our kings were fond of such oriental fashion:

- John Cassimir Vaasa (reigned 1632-1648)

- Istvan Batory (painted 1583) , he does look a bit like one of Osman pashas in such robe.

alitta2Yes, this fact also prooves the cultural effects of the Osman conquers in Eastern Europe, but this cultural exchange is much spectacular on those regions that were under their rule for longer period, just think about the present day Bosnia and Hercegovina or Albania, where because of the Osman presence over 400-450 years, people gave up their former beliefs and turned to be muslims.
I've heard in a joke that listed the cultural similarities between nations that a Bosnian is actually a muslim Serbian.
Among others, I've heard in the same joke that the Romanian language had taken shape when a Bulgarian shepherd found a Bible on the ground written in Latin, and tried to read it out loud :D

TeeJay87The joke about Bosnians being Muslim Serbs isn't very far from truth - Serbians, Bosnians, Croatians and Slovenians speak languages very similar to each other. Apart from few different words and Serbian being written in Cyrillic instead of Latin alphabet , they can be considered as regional dialects of one language.

Haven't heard the joke about origins of Romanian language, though it's said to be indeed based on Latin.

They almost look like twins.

TeeJay87I didn't know how to depict the 4-year age difference between Stan and Ian without drawing them as kittens or visibly aged Stan. Thus they look almost identical to each other, except brown blotches.
