Στην παγκόσμια σκηνή, κάθε χώρα έχει την εικόνα της, αλλά πώς θα έμοιαζαν ως άνθρωποι;

If Countries Were People

In the global arena, every country has its image, but how would they look as people? That was the question that Russian artist Anastasia Bulgakova thought about for a year before starting her latest project. «I draw personifications of different countries,» she wrote. «All of them will be militant and warrior-like, with dirt and blood. Not because of some political persuasion, but simply because that what I always draw in any case, and the idea of warrior-countries gives a lot of creative freedom.»

«Every character is going to have some stereotypical attributes that I am going to use in one way or another.» From an American that’s a bit naive and idealistic to a silent Japanese guy with a suspicious smile, you’d easily recognize these ‘people’ if you met them in the street. Scroll down to check out the character designs that any game developer would be interested in, and let us know which one did you like best.

#1 Canada

Canada

Canada is simple guy with puppy eyes. He is kind and not conflicting. Prefers to be at home and not look for any problems in others’ battles. He only fights in sports- hockey. He finds it honest and cheerful. Because of his success in hockey, he’s called «The King of ice». Sometimes a crown appears over his head and he often dreams about future victories. Wants to believe that USA is… Read More

#2 USA

USA

A bit naive and idealistic, but quite vicious on the inside. Very attractive and charismatic, easily turns others to her side. Pursues her goals with no regard to morals or consequence. Her main goal is to survive- and do it with maximum comfort. She wears leather armor, since she prefers extremely long range battles with her two sniper rifles. Cybernetic arms and legs give her extreme speed in combat. She is… Read More

#3 France

France

An alternate reality France. Here the monarchy has won, and the revolution failed. He is an ancient country now, more that 1500 years old. An aristocrat and a vampire. Blood and wine is totally his style, and art, of course. The monarch’s reign is supreme, and the vampire nobility is stronger than ever. He absolutely hates revolutions, uprisings, equality and «power of the people». Believes that democracy is just a… Read More

#4 Japan

Japan

This time it’s Japan, of course, and he is a man. I took some liberty in my decision since there were not too many comments. So next time, be a bit more active to get what you want ; ) Japan is a silent guy, with a suspicious smile. Likes technologies and perversions. Has some strange relationships with other countries, especially the neighbours. Ah, that sweet-sweet China… No one ever truly… Read More

#5 Iran

Iran

My first ancient civilizations character. 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… Read More

#6 England

England

I was asked not to make England too stereotypical, with tea, royalty and Downton Abbey. Well, here you go then… My England is fresh, young and wild- punk culture and rock music. I also really like Joseph Gilgun, and he was originally going to be my England, like you can see in the early sketches (link below), but the design didn’t work. England is hot, proud, jealous and impulsive. He remembers… Read More

#7 Russia

Russia

Pretty, cold, straightforward and with diplomatic skills of a sewer drain. Still, if you know her a bit, she will show you how warm and loving she can actually be. She wears a glamorous armor. Always. Since she is at war. Always. Now combat, she likes it close and personal. Especially against the odds, especially at winter, and especially if it’s heroic. She can shoot a bit, but where is the fun… Read More

#8 Germany

Germany

He still is a Teutonic knight, and a big one at that ( if you can see a knight in this concept, of course). And high-tech. Extremely. Germany is considered to be clean, orderly and modern, so he wears a mechsuit. Something like an Ironman suit, but with more precision German engineering in it. And more stylish. Unlike earlier times, he mostly fights long ranged battles now, to keep the… Read More

#9 Mexico

Mexico

«Coatlicue»- the mother serpent, the beginning and the end, a goddess from Aztec mythology. Living in Russia, I know very little about Mexico, besides a few stereotypes. So my Mexico is a drug lord- dangerous, beautiful and vicious. Slim and tall, she likes to wear classical men’s clothes, like any proper high-class crime lord. The upper body is covered in Aztec-Mayan themed tattoos. She likes being elegant, and doesn’t like… Read More

Israel

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… Read More
