My idea is similar to Hetalia or Countryballs- I draw personifications of different countries. The idea came up a year ago, but I was late with its realization. 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. And a some politics is always fun, from time to time.
Every character is going to have some stereotypical attributes, that I am going to use in one way or another.
The motherland. And I gave her a bit more than she currently is.
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 in that? Still, it usually clears the riffraff that is not worthy of the chilly, wintry, personal embrace.
The word "pizdec" is engraved on the sword, which pretty much symbolizes the Russian life in any age and era. And "poshol nakhuy" is written on the other side, as a usual phrase for "welcome".
There is a bear with AK-47, of course, but it's guarding the nuclear reactor back home. And the vodka. Probably a bad idea though.
