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.
and we’ll never be RusGers (RusGers)
it don’t run in our blood
the Brest-Litovsk Treaty just ain’t for us
