another pic title from sigur ros, you should listen to it when you can~ --> [link]

i think my hands were twitching while uploading this because i can't believe i'm finally at the point where i can call it "finished"...

original colors will always look better but im tired of adjusting it to match it, i just hate jpg and png quality =____=

anyway there's lots of angsty hetalia fanart of this war so i wanted to go for a different feel!
i was loosely inspired by howard pyle and i wish i had a fraction of his talent sob

view process here! [link]

This is just amazing! The coloring and detail given to this shows the exact emotion of the picture!
Rhov Featured By Owner Jul 3, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
This is one of the most breathtaking American revolution pictures I've yet seen. The fact that you used my dear Hetalia Alfred F. Jones is just...epic!
HeroicPlights Featured By Owner Jun 25, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
So beautiful!
I really love your coloring style, and I especially love how there looks to be a lot of people there, like a thick crowd, but you didn't have draw it all in detail in order for us to see it. Your art is incredible =)
Also, I love how Alfred is holding the flag up from the bottom, crouched down like that--it's a perfect spot for him to be, holding up his young flag. It's got a great triumphant feel!

This is how it should be. We were ecstatic to be free. :)
Tracy1LaiYen Featured By Owner Sep 19, 2011
hi! excuse me, i have a question.. xD... who are the guys holding the 13 colonies flag? (like.. who is the one standing and who is the one kneeling?)
hakuku Featured By Owner Sep 20, 2011  Professional Digital Artist
the one kneeling is america/alfred f. jones from axis powers hetalia and the other people are random revolutionists
LiberaFlight Featured By Owner Apr 13, 2011
I love this! It looks like something that could be found in a history book!
ashleyjordan Featured By Owner Feb 27, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
One of your best works I believe, this is gorgeous and so full of detail and emotions! I love how most of your pictures are based on actual events or at least inspired by some element of least to me it appears that way. I really like this one, the colors and emotions of struggle/victory are very evident and you displayed the concept beautifully!

Wow, fantastic. I love the colors and the faceless soldiers.

I LOVE war hetalia fanarts... and this is probably one of the best I've seen.
You're very good.
Icemask12 Featured By Owner May 5, 2010  Student General Artist
Oh, wow! Loving the color scheme here! Love the expressions in the front, the ethereal exhileration feeling.
americanheroalfred Featured By Owner Mar 22, 2010
In light of our current events I had to make this my desktop background. I enjoy the sketched out feel to this along with the soft color scheme. I just have to thank you for taking time out of your life for this creation. It's a cheerful reminder of our past and what we can accomplish.
B-gata Featured By Owner Mar 1, 2010
I like that you drew a different take on the war than the angsty one. It really gives a feeling of hope and looking to the future. I particularly like the person in the center of the picture raising his fist. The colors are much more mature than one usually sees in fanart. This must have taken a really long time. Thanks for sharing it with us.

All of your pieces are so emotionally inspiring~

It makes me want to shake my fist to the sky and say 'Fuck yeah!' Such a rowdy group. Love the motion.
Asia14 Featured By Owner Oct 22, 2009
I don't know much of american history so i don't truly understand the reasons of what happening *lives in europe* but the coloring and the feeling i get is great.
Stacye Featured By Owner Oct 20, 2009
Such a strong classical composition.... very nice~!
hiei9934 Featured By Owner Oct 18, 2009  Student
I love the color and motion in this pic. X33

Can't wait to see more!! :D
insomniel Featured By Owner Oct 16, 2009
This is amazing! I love the colors and poses, so impressive.
jinsai9 Featured By Owner Oct 15, 2009
The energy and expressions in this are amazing! And I love that you added in France! Honestly, I love the whole concept of it. It's great to see America celebrating, rather than mourning like he's so often depicted. I'm not against UK/US/UK, but I don't like when America is shown yearning to belong to England again, after he fought so hard to break free. So this? Awesome.
hakuku Featured By Owner Oct 15, 2009  Professional Digital Artist
i don't really know where people got he idea that the 2nd figure is france (except maybe the hair) but i find it kinda funny XD;;; cuz i know the french had different uniforms lol.
thank you though!
though its still interesting to see the Loyalist side of America~
jinsai9 Featured By Owner Oct 15, 2009
*laughs* Actually, I thought it was based on the other comments left here! I scrolled back up to look and the picture, and yeah, the guy holding the flag DOES look like France.

The French uniforms appear to have been very similar, from the images I've seen. (I've been hunting for a good image, as I was thinking of cosplaying Revolutionary War France.)
hakuku Featured By Owner Oct 15, 2009  Professional Digital Artist
lol i never intended for that guy to be france but i dont mind people interpreting the pic differently
still-prince Featured By Owner Oct 13, 2009
Absolutely wonderful~ =D
I can't help but get the feel you would see this picture in a history book xD But Hetalia is awesome anyway!
dai-hima Featured By Owner Oct 8, 2009
I always get an epic feel from your pictures. :]

They're the type of paintings that people 300 years from now will still admire and study.

Dearest, you are a legend. *//A//*
r-uoi Featured By Owner Oct 8, 2009  Student General Artist
Wow, I absolutely love the sheer joy in Alfred's pose and expression... somehow it makes me feel just as happy. That's amazing, I don't think I've ever felt like this over a piece of art :heart:
