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.
First of all, I know that women don't wear Tzitzit, or use Tefillin, but Israel is female and there aren't any well known feminine religious symbols.
Israel is a soldier girl, in her current incarnation. She is, actually, quite ancient, but due to her always being small, she gets trampled, exiled, or destroyed, only to reborn again a few generations later. Since she always tries to remember all her wrongdoers, most of which no longer exist, she ends up being salty and angry with the world. Nevertheless, she is quite positive by nature. Building, researching and eating, is her favorite. Of course, there is always the question of her neighbors, which are actually her numerous cousins. Family is a battlefield, and Israel is forced to protect the little she has.
She is sensitive and impulsive, when it comes to her relationships with other countries. The European family loves to troll her about pretty much everything, and she always responds, like the little girl she is. She wants to be accepted in the West, even though she lives the East. Tries follow all the rules, but always ends up frustrated, since she usually betrays herself in the process. She is young after all, she will learn..Despite all that, she has some very bizarre relationships with some countries.
Her best friend is USA, but they can actually be called siblings, or maybe one of them is a clone? In truth, it's still unclear which one is the real Israel, who rules who, and in turn, the rest of the world. There is a love-hate relationship with Germany. No matter how many times Germany sends her crying, Israel always comes back.
There are also friends in the Far East. South Korea decided that she and Israel are BFF, since both are small and get bullied by weird siblings. Israel even trusts Korea with her lifeblood- printing shekels. Japan is a strange fan of Israel, but he is a strange fan of many things, including Russia. Lately Israel has found a vocal support in Micronesia- it's always good to have friends in the middle of nowhere.
Israel wields a big pulse rifle, and commands an army of UAVs, UGVs and drones. Since she is too small to win directly, she uses her brains to outsmart her opponents and always have the tech advantage. If possible, she will fight from afar with the her automated army and prefer defensive combat. When it's not enough, the big rifle is probably good for something. She also has a hedgehog scout, flying on the drone. He is invisible on ground and simply weird in the sky...He loves Israel very much: )

Please, I hope you draw the countries of Latin America. Especially to Chile.
I am an Israeli and I find it really nice, also I liked that "Sababa" on the gun, heh.
Also I understand your description there with Israel being young since we are just about to celebrate 70 years to our country.
We do have mistakes here in there but we are trying our best! : P
Well have a good day! Or night? I can't really tell with these time zones, lol
I like Israel too. I hope your country will be fine)
it is something special
Now I have plans to do another country.
But recently I visited Italy. I still have many mixed impressions.
We are considered to be the "Little brother" of Germany, but we hate that title...
Here some examples of old personifications of Austria...:
Austria is very interesting country. Of course I will try to find the time for it.
Thanks you for ideas.
It would be really cool if you did Switzerland sometime.
She fought a brutal war for her own freedom and although she hasn't fought a war in a long time, she's still very paranoid and constantly preparing for it.
It would be awesome if you could capture that feeling in Switzerland.
Hypocrisy of the situation, you do not complain about my drawing of Iran, where people are now imprisoned for Instagram.
Well, If you do not want to be in the ban, leave hypocrisy and politics.
I don't mean to ruin anything, but my comment is something to think about.
If you want to put politics into Commons of a drawing at least be accurate.
No one is prison in the Palestinian. there's not even such thing as Palestinian! because Palestine is not a place nor it was ever a thing.
The correct term is Palestina. Not Palestine.
Palestina is the way the British soldier used to call the entire area of Israel when they occupied it. it was just a nickname. NOT a name. therefore there was never a thing called Palestine.
Now about "helping the Palestinian keep their land" they could have left. they had five different opportunities to close deals with Israel and get a country of their own or leave the territory they're occupying because that's not their territory. even when the odds in ALL those agreements were against Israel, Israel still said 'hey I'm willing to do this agreement, just give us peace' but EVERY SINGLE TIME the Palestinian said no, so who is really murdering And staying by force?? the Palestinian.
they send their kids to attack soldiers and citizen, they send people to explode and then they celebrate death! not in a good way like Dias de los Muertos in Mexico, in the worst way ever. when Israeli people get murder because they send their kids to exploding in Israel territory, they celebrate by throwing candy to kids on the street. they celebrate that INNOCENT people died and that THEIR OWN kids died knowingly and instead of grieving over their death ones, over losing people, they're celebrating that.
and by the way a lot of the things you see on the media that show Palestinian injured and soldiers from Israel that are molesting them? 99% of those are pure bullshit. if you'll do a quick search on Google you'll find the original photos, which most of them are coming from Syria, and frankly you don't even need to do that, you really think that Israeli soldiers walk with sandals on the field?? no army in the WORLD is walking with sandals in the field.
So anytime someone is sandals is holding the weapon to the kid's head and its claiming the person holding the weapon is an Israeli soldier, that's a COMPLETE lie.
Now try to learn a bit of accurate history instead of shooting bullshit and onaccurate facts out of your mouth.
And you are a hypocrite, because you don't seem to complain about Iran where people are being imprisond because they are gay or because woman's are walking without covering their faces or their heads, and you're not complaining about Syria where there is a civil war right now or Lebanon where there's a civil war right now and people are dying every single day and ISRAEL is helping refugees from both those countries and taking care of them and their wounds one and is welcoming all of them to stay until they recover and send food and clothes and medicine to them.
You don't talk about THAT because you probably don't know that because you don't care!
and you don't care to actually search and check your facts.
there are a lot of people are like you. they claim to care about people but they only say lies about Israel and they don't know the actual status of what happening in Israel and you and them don't know that Israel is helping her enemies, because every time Israel does something good apparently no one is interested but every SINPLE time Israel does something that TONS of different countries including Syria, Lebanon, Iran, North Korea, most of Africa's countries excetera, are doing to their people, suddenly Israel is not okay and suddenly the entire world care! but it appears that no one cares about all the other people suffering in the world in those countrys I just listed, that are doing WAY worse stuff and are executing War crime on a DAILY basis.
if you claim to care then:
A. start learning the actual facts and don't eat up every lie the media is sending your way.
B. try to learn ACTUAL history.
and C. don't be a hypocrite and claim you care about one thing or one population when you obviously don't care about any other population that is suffering WAY more.
"palestinian" lives a very good, quality life in Israel. the reason they don't want to leave is because they know that in ANY other Arabic country they would NEVER have the same life level they have in Israel.
They wouldn't have democracy, their kids will not be able to go to school, they wouldn't have constant and FREE Medical Care. Their life in Israel is really good so stop believing lies.
Sinto-risky, I am so so sorry that I comment about political stuff in this drawing but I just had to correct those lies.
If people will keep on spreading those kind of Lies and would not listen or learn about the truth the situation will only get worse so I'm seriously terribly sorry about that but I just had to correct them about everything they don't know and all the lies they are being fed.
Sorry to the artist, my intention is not to continue the discussion on politics, but just to let someone know that their act of courage didn’t go unnoticed. I really like your art, and I can imagine someone writing a fanfiction about your characters.
I just do not like when under my drawings there are political discussions. My project is for fun.
Thank you for understanding.
I wonder how other nationalities sees other countries It is sorta cool to see different people have their own styles (Like Hetalia and SATW have different perspectives and stereotypes) and can't wait to see more. It's cool you go with the punkish military-ish style, reminds me of cyberpunk which is one of my fave art styles other than steampunk.
If you don't mind, can you do one or two South East Asian countries (especially since Vietnam has ties with Russia or the Philippines with ties to USA)? I'm sorry if I am asking too much..
Thanks for the comment)
Now I'm going to draw one European country, but in future it is possible to create some Asian countries, in addition to Japan.
I just need a time.
On the side note, you're one of the best artists I've seen on the internet the shading, colors and the value of colors seem to blend so well.
Anyways keep up with the good work
Support and love from island nation of Palau!
