mutually assured destruction

surprise surprise fanart other than Naruto eh 8D

sighhh okay like i finished this Cold War-theme picture wayyyy back. I only posted America on DA because I kinda kept trying to change Russia’s expression. And I just felt there were a whole lot of mistakes so I kinda told myself i’d revamp them both but never quite got around to doing it

found it again in my computer today and decided i should stop being so picky and just post it because i do like what i did with the colours (even if I feel there are mistakes elsewhere)^^ instead of leaving it to collect dust

I do love Alfred and Ivan’s dynamics ^^ I dig their antagonism for some reason hehe. And I do like the idea of portraying America with the sort of insanity and malice the fandom sometimes associates too much with Russia. I mean for me, it’s like “c’mon, they’re two sides of the same damned coin!”

#superpowers #cunning #and ruthless #headcanon america is far more intelligent than he lets on 

#you mean CANON america is far more intelligent than he lets on cos he’s pretty fucking smart like you gotta give him that #okay so this is another one that i love because not only do they both look devious but they’re both fucking insane #and you have to kind of think about it because dude like this war has put them in a pile of shit and look now they both look like shit #and russia look sfucking psycho and america #okay let me talk about america for a second and i’m not being biased (maybe i am cos he’s one of my faves) but at the same time i’m not b… #america is a super SUPER sweet character who cares about people and loves being chill and loves to love #but then this war rolls around and he becomes his country and his government— HE BECOMES OBSESSED #FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER HE LITERALLY BECOMES HIS GOVERNMENT. he becomes crazy #and obsessive and just downright fucking FRIGHTFUL. and i’m a huge activist #so it’s weird that america is one of my faves because real america is a fucking asshole but alfredis just awesome because he’s just great #but this is the moment where i sit back and say holy fucking shit.

reblogging for the commentary :D this is an old piece but i really like it. and it’s similar to my sentiments towards America/Alfred- a country with its faults and has done hideous things and failed to live up to its ideals at times, but one i admire for its creativity, dynamism and creed nonetheless. there’s always two sides of the coin to every nation.
