Happy Birthday, Birds!!!! (and I'm sorry ^^)

Happy birthday birdsofshore!!

I'm sorry I'm giving you such a lame gift. In fact, it's not even a gift. It's more of a "gift", like an attempt at a gift, and why it ultimately failed. But since I'm obviously a masochist I'm going to show in detail this whole debacle. :D In fact, all the pictures can be made bigger by clicking on them.

I got in my head that I wanted to do an ~illustration~ of In the Company of a Rubber Duck. I had good intentions, honest! But – well, you'll see.

I had everything nearly ready. I had a great idea. Harry in the tub, with Draco talking to him and smitting him and it being cool and funny, but stuff happened. Look:

Harry:



Rubber Duck!Draco:




With a bonus of Mouthy!Rubber Duck!Draco:



The tub & ~scene~ settling:



Seemed to go pretty OK, yeah? Well.

I ran into my first obstacle with Harry though. It turns out that action figures for children cannot be undressed -- which I suppose is a relief? But really, not very conducting for my project.

See:



But hey, I'm nothing if not diligent and I figured I could make the ~bubbles~ high enough and the rest your dirty imagination would take care of.

But then I ran into another problem; bubbles. God, you don't want to know all the stuff I tried – which I'm telling you anyway (in no particular order): cotton, sheets, towels, a beret, rubber, and digital (I took far too much time on this and the results weren't even worth showing). At the end it was a weird mix of, well, I'll keep that mystery to myself. And still didn't work because. . .

The biggest problem, as a matter of fact, was, again, Harry. He just wouldn't co-operate. And probably not his own doing. But the thing is, this action figure would not sit in the tub. Yeah, he just wouldn't bend properly in position (and I should have seen this one coming after the fail at undressing him, really):



He looked very uncomfortable, I reckon because he never planned to take a soak, you know? Being dressed and all.

He can kneel though! (I don't know why I tried that, frankly.)



Which I'm sure it's OK.

But I was committed to this idea and I actually got this rubber duck for this so I had to do something! And finally, I realised Harry was smitten with Draco!Duck and that's the story I should "tell".

And here are the results:



I'm so sorry, Birds. But I love you. <3 I promise I had good intentions. I hope you're having a fantastic day! ♥♥♥


Disclaimer (which I know, it should go on top): In the Company of a Rubber Duck by birdsofshore should not be blamed or even at all related to this project. The story is amazing and this (what is even this, really?) is not. ^^

HAPPY BIRTHDAY BIRDS! ♥
