APH: Wars of the Roses by murderaddict APH: Wars of the Roses by murderaddict
I was listening to Orchard of Mines while drawing this. You should listen to it too, it'll give you a nice atmosphere while staring at this piece~ (Note that the song actually starts at 0:33)

Ah, my Hetalia addiction is back... orz... Oh darn you, Shakespeare and your highly Hetalia-relateable plays...

If you couldn't tell, it's Henry VI... Well, he's not King Henry, he's just plain ol England, but the play I stole this from was Henry VI. I went to a play last night for English class~ Ehehe... Schickspeare... *shot* The entire cast of the play was female, which I thought was an interesting concept~

Oh, I got lazy with the background (what's new?) I'm happy with England's clothes, though~ But I still suck at drawing England himself. UGH! I fail as an artist! *emocorner* I can never do him justice... mostly because of his manry brows~ Lawlz~

Misshapen Dick, and Lady Bona have nothing on England. ;D Henry the VI was a horrible king. Margaret was a better king. And she was the queen.

wow. the slightly translucent roses, the crest of House Windsor done in full epicness in the background, the black cloak over the ermine-trimmed robes, the powder smoke in the bottom of the pic, wearing the Crown Jewels in a very emo fashion... this is very neat. +fav.

thank you~ Though fail background is fail... I are super laaaazy... and I tried to grasp the whole "emo-emo-angst-angst" of the war... Because, I mean, civil wars are so much worse when they're Hetalia-fied. What's worse than a nation with an identity crisis~?

But America, of course, can't have an epic civil war picture. Observe. If you're wondering, the American Civil War involved the northern states (the Union) fighting against the southern states (the Confederates). The south wanted to cede from the US because the north was making slavery illegal... And the south needed their slaves as cheap labor force... War ensued, couple tens of thousand died, the south gave up, and now we don't have slaves. (but Hawaii wasn't even a state back then~)

tyhen again, as far as civil wars go the Wars of Roses were pretty tame. there was one or two battles every few years, in which one contender to the throne would meet the other upon a field of battle...
Ilya: ...and the two would battle to the death! king and usurper matched and only glorious battle to decide the victor!
me: *shoves* thank you.

yeeah, we kind of have to know about that. since these days, 'International' is politics-speak for 'American'. like how the International Monetary Fund (the one that gives money to bankrupt nations and helps out with disasters like in Pakistan) is based in Washington~

murderaddict Featured By Owner Aug 24, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Bah, it's a civil war, though... by Hetalia standards, any civil war is horrible~ Especially if it's someone who's otherwise stable... *shiver*
Lol~ That sounds epic~

Oh the irony of it all~ I think American schools should teach us about the outside world, honestly. Our classes don't even MENTION wars that America wasn't a part of... And then they worry that kids are growing up isolated from the outside world. But others complain about kids who aren't patriotic enough... MAKE UP YOUR MIND, DAMMIT. (Pakistan~ Oh, America should just stop butting his nose into places he doesn't belong...)

yeah.. luckily, both sides had exactly the same ideology and motives, so for a couple hundred years Iggy had the most boring split personality in APH~
Ilya: my sincere thanks, ma'am.

actaully, its floods in Pakistan atm, an area the size of Britain is under water right now and millions are now homeless...

Ah, that's nice... (Hey, you called him Iggy~) America's split personality is pretty much the same personality, only different ideas... And Japan's split personality is just day and night... And Russia's split personality is canon and scares me shitless...

Ah, really? See how isolated America is? Never heard of it. The only thing that's in Hawaii's newspapers right now is the economic problems of Hawaii and dissing America (but that's always there)...

yeeah, Iggy is something else i picked up from you. short for Inglatera (or however its spelt), i'm told?

Russia's split personality... may you explain?

wha? it's one of the biggest natural disiasters of the year, and noone's being told about it?
Reply
:iconmurderaddict:
murderaddict Featured By Owner Sep 2, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
You pick up things amazingly quick *shot*
And yus, it is short for Inglaterra... I think...

Weeeell, he's a yandere~ Yandere characters are generally normal people, but when it comes to personal possessions or a love interest he or she will do ANYTHING to protect it. I'm assuming that Russia/USSR is a yandere because the USSR used to be so big and covered so many countries. And in Hetalia, occupying nations means a "family" with a possessive, yet really young "dad/big brother" named Russia. But he's just a yandere (he's always like that, it's not really split personality)... Japan actually has a split personality... He's normally polite and curteous (per Japanese sterotype) but Hetalia WAS based in WWII...

Ah yeah... *asks parents* ... Nope, they haven't heard of it either. And now I redirect you to this article which'll probably explain our lack of knowledge. And it's true. There are no advertisments like for Haiti, no news coverage, plus it's a flood (we don't hear about those very often), AND Hawaii is pretty much just a vacation spot and a military pawn to the rest of oblivious America. The people who bring us information aren't fans of any country in the Middle East.
