APH- Fly by koulin APH- Fly by koulin
Semi-speed painting around 4-5 hours. Technically it's 10 hours, but I was having this unmotivated period and most of the time I just slacked 8'D

I don't know why I'm doing this but I painted this because I wanted to submit it to our school's Summer Senior Gallery show or whatever the hell it's called (never remembered). I mean, I get extra points so why not? *shot* But to tell the truth, my main purpose is to draw a Hetalia character and see if anyone recognizes :DDD Because my friend and I were so sad when we realized that our school doesn't have that many Hetalia fans DD:

And YES I KNOW his bomber jacket isn't officially right xD But I want it long and flowy and fluffy so there you go.

EDIT EDIT: LOL OMFG they used this for the 2011 course planning guide. I was like, dude, were the selectors drunk? Hell is going to freeze over................

I LOVE the perspective on this, and how you did the background. =D And it's also very obviously America, even with the modified bomber jacket. ;)

Can I ask, did you illustrate this when you were in high school, at Lord Byng?
Because I remember seeing this on the course planning book back in Grade 8 and after seeing this on tumblr, 2 years later, it blew my mind. I didn't even remember it was Hetalia at the time.

Also because I commissioned you at C&E, unbeknownst to the entire thing and it was just so asdsdfkjlk;.
Do pardon, sorry.

HAHAHA oh man this is rad. Yeah, I'm an alumni of Lord Byng, shh! x) It's weird though, Mr. Hartley-Folz's the one who told me this piece got picked. I was all 18 kinds of wtf at the time. It was strange submitting fan art for a course planning guide. I suppose at least I satisfied the juniors from the anime club or something xD

Oh! Did you commission me? Who were you may I ask? <3

Ahaha, I understand the fanart thing, but it really is one of those pieces that looks just as well if you don't know the fandom.

As for the commission, I was the Shinra at Cos&Effect who commissioned a piece of Yukio, from Ao no Exorcist XD (I really love it btw!)

Your paintings are amazing!

I like your choice of colors, in the mountains and grass especially. The windswept effect in the clouds, the grass, and America's hair is really nice. The mountains are a nice touch to put at the horizon and help fill up the sky, and this version of the bomber jacket is just fabtastic.
