This is not what I'm going to turn in for Illustration class. XD
(I wish - but everything has to be done by hand for that class)

I admit that it looks good as it is, but I really want to add color this - which is going to take a lot of time to do (which I don't have right now; I'll eventually replace this file with the colored version once it's done). XD

[EDIT: Here's the colored version: [link] ; it's simple, but I don't have a lot of time to spare these days :XD: ]

Here's some things I want to point out before some of you complain about them:

*Germany/Ludwig actually doesn't have a last name - in fact, he's the only APH character who doesn't have one!
So I used his brother's (Gilbert/Prussia) last name, which is also spelled Weillschmidt.

*Japan's name... it is customary to have the last name first in Japan, so it shouldn't be such a big deal if his name is in the wrong order. XD

*France/Francis' last name is also spelled Bonne-Fois, which literally means "Good Times" in French. XD

*If you hadn't noticed, I used the Italian flag colors on the title (pretty obvious why).
I thought about using the German flag colors on the Axis Powers countries' names, but I didn't. XD

*There's a nice Nazi eagle emblem with the swastika on it (sarcasm).
So what.
It's historically accurate pertaining to this series and subject, and it pays homage to the inspiration for this pic - Quentin Tarantino's Inglourious Basterds uses the eagle emblem for the "O" in the title.
(hah, it's like I'm also lecturing about my Avatar XD ).

That's all I have to say for now...
So let me know what you think. :D

AXIS POWERS HETALIA is created by Hidekaz Himaruya.

INGLOURIOUS BASTERDS is created by Quentin Tarantino.

OMFG that is awesome! I can Imagine America cutting a shwastica into Germanys head or Britain getting shot in the funbags in a bar after gettting to drunk.

Lolz... Indeed. :D
It would make an awesome APH episode (if not a movie). :XD:

That would be cool. I'd feel bad for England though. And Germany. And basically everyone else.
