Countries: Poland by Sinto-risky Countries: Poland 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. 
You can still offer your ideas, of course!


Many people have asked for Poland, and it's the country behind the Country Balls craze, from what I remember (it was called 'Poland and friends' here in Russia).
A small Slavic country in the Eastern Europe. A relative of Russia, Ukraine, Czech Republic, and other Slavs.
He's a noble Winged Hussar on a literally war-torn horse. The poor thing was kicked, slashed, blown up, torn to pieces, devoured and annihilated. It came back angrier and cybernetically augmented from the fires of hell, since "Poland Is Not Yet Lost" (that's the anthem's English name, btw).
As for the rider himself, even though he's good with his weapons, he's not that big and strong, not anymore at least. Back in the day, though, he and his Lithuanian bro could kick anyone to kingdom come, which is exactly what they did, angering a lot of wrong countries/people along the way, who eventually took revenge. Time and time again. Painfully. His mighty steed was torn to shreds, his lands were occupied, his riches were no more.
Things only went downhill from there, as is customary, when you are torn to pieces without much power to do anything. Russia, Austria and Germany became the new masters. Poland rebelled several times, but always failed. France tried to help, but traditionally failed. USA tried to help, and actually scored! Gaining independence was invigorating enough to even kick away Russia with her crazy new Red ideas. But shortly after, Germany went berserk again, and cowardly France with traitorous England pretended not to see it. Red Russia came flooding, and everyone pretended not to see again. Miraculously, though, Red Russia has withered, leaving Poland beaten, twitchy, drunk and, finally, free...
Due to his rich life experience, Poland became moody, border-conscious and paranoid. Everyone can be the enemy, every shadow conceals the next invasion. Except for Hungary, he's the new bro. Everyone else are traitorous bloodthirsty ****ing kurwas!

Awesome work, finally great to see some Baltic countries. But one thing keeps bugging me. From what I recall of my history classes Lithuania and Poland were bros yes, but then Poland became hungry for power and and wanted to "absorb" Lithuania into it. From then they became something like friendly enemies.
Still an awesome piece of art. It would be great if you showed some attention to Lithuania and man are we tired of being war torn or what. And yes I'm from Lithuania. Love your work, keep it up!

OMG, it looks really cool! Yep, stereotypical, pretentious and exaggerated but man, tell me those three words don't describe Poland perfectly xD
And those 4 sentences in the end of description. This is exactly how I see Poland.
(by the way I'm Polish, so I think I know something about this nation :P)
And thank you for remembering about horse.

I literally just saw your art today and I’m hooked so great!!!! I know you have a long list of countries you want to draw but could you do Nigeria 🇳🇬. It’d be awesome to see my country and I haven’t seen any African countries in your gallery (so far I’m still browsing). Your work is beautiful and really detailed for someone who’s doing this as a hobby

Thats the best description I have ever read about our country!

Great fanart, you even drew our pride-hussaria wings!
Love it

And I love how other countires are evolved with technology, like taken from sci-fi, and we are still riding on a horse, 
Wich is super cool, cause even if we are somehow evolving pretty fast we still are a little behind ^^

This is really good
THANK YOU!

Nicely done. No punches pulled and true of many a war torn people. The Polish are good people who really won't stand for arrogance from anyone even when they are faced with overwhelming odds. They are hardy, Stoic and have a never say die rebellious sense of identity, even when forsaken by others. Also to be noted for their academic and logical prowess (most Slavs make for very talented engineers and technicians with very logical minds).

P.S Can't wait until the celts get a look in (Ireland specifically). Note that Ireland is a land of strong, wily and beautiful women backed by stronger men. A land of fey beauty and masculine under pinnings. Imagine a fair maiden with Fiery hair, a white robe, A book in her right hand, a dagger in the other (pointed away from the viewer and held at waist height as if to conceal it) to display a discipline and mischief. A knowledge and danger, yet playful and serene. Behind her are 4 strong men, each draped in historic cloths reflecting an ancient history leading to modern times, histories still very present. Three stand to her left One with ancient celtic dress, the next a tudor smock, the nearest in Jacobian attire. To the maidens right a Royal Soldier in a suit of Elizabethan  Armour and Mail. Emblazoned across each figure are the arms of Munster, Leinster, Connaught and on the right, Ulster. Everything is backed in Green in a forest setting, with maiden Front and centre surrounded by green, stood in a grassy clearing (with the faceless figures just behind), Fiery Orange hair, Pure White Dress and the Green land she walks upon (Green White and Orange).

Awesome work indeed. I am Polish myself and perhaps You may be interested in this idea sometime later on. 
1) I already saw the Badass Uberawesome mech-Germany by you
2) The stereotypes is mostly spot on minus the details pointed out by carmicheal somewhere above here in the comment section

If you are feeling a bit provocative on the stereotypes...maybe you can put Poland and Germany or England in the same image, and for example Our handsome dude from this image "polish"-ing (har,har X3) German's fancy mech armor and depict that Poles like to go abroad for work, because "...his ritches are no more". XD

I really love your artwork of personifying countries as physical people. I've always been attracted to that idea and I think your designs are truly incredible. You've already done my country, which is Canada (and absolutely loving the stereotypes for him XD We Canadians have got to be one of the few countries who like to laugh at our own stereotypes), but I was wondering if you've had many requests for the Netherlands? It's my ancestral homeland and I would love to see it considering how it is often overlooked.

I would love you to do the Czech republic, neighbor of Poland and my motherland. I love this concept of countries being personified, and though there's a slim chance you'd do the Czech rep., (can't imagine many people requesting it), I'd really love to see your rendition of it. Personally, I'd like to see Czechia (Still getting used to this 'new' name) as a woman, but I love all your work, so whatever you do, it's gonna be great <3
