I'm not a fan or Nazi's or Soviets/Communists but some of their uniforms were stunning and I love the way you draw them whether they are enemies or allies. I hope I can find fanfiction for this pairing as good as your artwork!! The V chevron on Gilbert's arm is the "Honour Chevron for the Old Guard" and was worn by SS members who joined the NSDAP prior to 1933.
Gilbert : "Surrender, my precious Russland. You have no chance against me. And as a favour Me Awesome will ask Italy to lend you a white flag." Ivan : "I promise you, Nazi bastard, your ass will regret this."
P.S. Great job. And I actually have a question. What letter "V" on Prussia's sleeve means?
LOL at the white flag. i can't imagine Ivan holding that kind of flag. thank you. to be honest, i don't know! XD i just search of image references of the uniform and NOT actually looking for the meaning of those other things. i'm kinda lazy...
Oh the irony when ypu're supposed to do a copslay of both of these characters... Yeah I'm doing USSR Russia (or more like buyng the uniform XD) for 2015 september.. and I'm doing (buying the uniform once again XD) Nazi Prussia... don't know where though.. I already have a Prussia copslay in the blue uniform... but I'm like dying here because this picture is way way too perfect
It is cool. for once my height comes in handy (because the USSR will be going to a group cosplay... And I'll be the tallest of us... XD). I'm laughing at a fact here and it is that I'm supposed to do Cardverse Italy for a group cospay too.. And most likely I'm the tallest of our group.. And we have all of the main nations... Germany, Italy (meee~~), Japan, France, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, America, England, China, Russia, Hungary , Austria, Prussia and Sealand.. We also have some minor pulled out of nowhere ideas for characters to be hearts or spades etc. XD
Yeah my character range is from the other end to the other.. I'm not really sure if I can cosplay Russia (Because I'm so different from him myself) but I'll have to try. I've noticed often that my personality changes when I'm in a cosplay.
It is all that sweet sweet tension. Love the expressions and I like how you decided to go with the lighting too. The pose is with them being so close but also agressivly so because of the betrayal really comes across. Really adore how you draw these two
