Countries: Iran by Sinto-risky Countries: Iran by Sinto-risky
Disclaimer: 

1) My project is about stereotypes. I don't want to make all countries pretentious and epic. 
There are a lot of these characters on the Internet without my project.
I believe that my "countries" need more humor and stereotypes: )

2) I try no to use nowdays politics in the project and I'm not trying to offend anyone.
But if our points of view on a country/nation don't match, well, that's life.
Also, I do not know everything about every countries. This can be reflected in my drawings.

3) I'm sorry if I have not had time to draw your country yet. I read many comments and I remember about all of you.
I have a permanent main job and ocasional freelance jobs. And sometimes I'm just lazy.
This is not a Patreon project, where people have to give something every month. I draw my Countries for pleasure.

Thank you for staying with me and be patient.


My first ancient civilizations character.

I was interested in arabian tales. You know, Aladdin, djins, travelers and heroes in sands, mysterious creatures and so on. 
I didn't know to which country should I attach to my character. After reading a few articles I decided that it would be Iran. Because it's location was the largest cultural center of the middle east for a long time. You may disagree, but this is my decision.

Iran is a mage (the first mage in my series). He is gloomy and not talkative, because talk is cheap, unlike gold and power. This hero is on the "gray side".
Dressed in arab style clothing with gold armor elements. Uses the golden mask to hide is face and intimidate his opponents. He has a magical lamp with a djinni, who will fulfill the mage's wishes. It's not like it has any other choice. In fights he mostly uses magic and diplomatic pressure. The curved saber is mostly used for executions, since djinni does most of the dirty work.
He's definitely the Lord of Sands. Many disagreed, of course, but good luck finding their remains in the desert. 

The djinn consists of blue flames that resemble liquid. It is sentient and wears elements of ancient armor, which are mostly broken by now. 
It usually appears from the lamp to protect it's master and speaks in an strange language.

It's a typical mage and summon duo.

ok dear, I don't want to say you what to do. I just want to prevent the distortion of history because some people may accept your imaginary desing instead of reality!
these pictures may help you to have a better historical desing next time:

   Aryans8 by FZ-Nashenas   Aryans3 by FZ-Nashenas   Aryans2 by FZ-Nashenas   Amestris with Xerxes the Great by FZ-Nashenas      798px-Farvahar001 by FZ-Nashenas   

if you need more images let me know. I consider any difference with real history of my country that may mislead the people of the world as insulting.
Regards

Thanks for the explanation.
I'm a bit nervous because there are some complaints and charges about this project. It annoys me, of course.

I know about Persia. But I did not draw Persia. I drew Iran. These are different styles, different times, and even countries and religion.

I hope my words do not make you tired and angry, Persia and Iran both are same ancient words in my language and have the same meaning: aryans land, and none of these words belong to 2 different times.
next point is: entry of a religion from a country to another country does not make the quiddity of the people or the symbols of that country difference. the sentence you said is like saying all Christians in the world are like Romans and all Christian's symbols are like Roman's symbols around the world! but isn't it.
Iran has maintained its past, Iran did not have ever a warrior like the warrior you designed. (your picture is like arab warriors and that's reason of people's complaints and charges)

Thanks and best regards,

Arian

I understand you. But it's not easier for me.

I'm just not pleased that someone refers to my work as an insult ("that's reason of people's complaints and charges"). I spent my time and energy and I do not see a valid reason for complaints, to be honest.
I painted a foreign country. If someone does not like it, he can pass by and not look. It's like that you give something to someone, and another person complains about the gift...It does not matter, a good gift or a bad one. Although, I do not think I did shit.

As I said, I'm not a professional historian. I know about Persia, I know about Iran as an eastern country. And I draw how I see it. 
Persia and your references, this is another country from the past. I chose Iran, which I see today. I see it as an Islamic eastern country. 
I believe a lot off people on the East and West do not see much difference between ukrainians, russians, poles, czechs and belarusians. But we are different. And I'm not complaining. Ok.

If I decided to paint ancient Persia, of course I would use such references.

Of course I try to develop my skills and project and accept some feedbacks. 
But I'm really tired. Everyone is trying to be soo serious about their religion, the nation. 
My project is about stereotypes and fan.
I hope it was clear now.

Thank you too.

OMG!
your reasons are not persuasive anyway.
you see Iran is in the middel east but Iranian are immigrants came from southwest of ancient Siberia and some Europe areas near Germany thousands years ago, and are so difference with Arabs that are permanent residents of the middel east. if you dont see much difference between Ukrainians, Russians, Poles, Czechs and Belarusians it is because of none of them are immigrants!

What you see today about Iran in the media does not matter to me,
But what I see in Iran as an Iranian is completely difference with your views.

I do not want to do a historical debate with you, your picture is amazing and I appreciate you for the time and energy you spent on this work.
also I do not want you to make a change in your drawing, I just want you to remove the name of Iran from your description and replace it with the name of an Arabic country related with this image and this Arab legendary character. Is this a big demand?

by the way rescue yourself from complaints and fatigue.

Nobody accepts an irrelevant person in the history arts!

THANKS AGAIN!

"your reasons are not persuasive anyway."

Well. Thanks for worrying about all of that and me. But it is my artwork, my mistakes. I do not like being pressured. 
The problem is too exaggerated. This is personal project, not international political project.
I heard your opinion, I will accept it when I decide to draw Persia or another Eastern country.

hey, first you should know Iran is not arab country. Iran and Iranian are aryan and it makes so difference. I suggest you search more about something you want to desing. ancient Iranian costumes have been very different from Arab dresses and something you desinged.

Hey.
Firstly, I do not owe anything to anyone.
Secondly, you should read that disclaimer- Countries: Poland
Also, you could read the comments and notice that I'm a little tired of answering all these complaints about his suit and nationality.
I'm not a professional historian, I paint for myself. 
Little respect for other people's work.
Have a nice day.

AWESOME piece!! 
But if you are anthropomorphizing countries then this does not suit Iran as much as it suits Iraq or Kuwait or Yemen or Oman or the interior provinces of Saudi Arabia or Jordan or Syria .... Basically more Arab and less Persian .....

Very, very talented. I love how detailed everything is, and the description. Also, can you do Philippines? That'd be awesome, considering the culture has very unique mythical creatures, like the Bakunawa, the dragon that can eat the moon.
