Title: What you wear or what you eat?
Characters: Lithuania + Poland, Korea, China + Rome, Belarus, Australia + New Zealand... uhh wait there's a lot. Spain, France, England, Canada, America, China, Russia, Italy, Germany, Belarus, Liechtenstein, Japan, Hungary, Lithuania, Poland, Greece, Sweden and SPECIAL GUEST Himaruya-sensei
Warnings: Image heavy? It's an art dump, after all
Summary: Assorted fanart of assorted nations. Which, as an afterthought, have a vague theme of clothes and sweets.
I drew this one solely because I wanted to see Korea in a headband. :D Yes, I am shallow.
China and Rome. I will forever be charmed by the fact that they did kind of meet, historically, and how puzzling they must have looked to each other. (China, you old, old man.)
Little Belarus, in a traditional dress.
A pencil-sketch I did for a travelling art book last year. ♥ (Click for larger image)
(For those who don't know, Australia and New Zealand both claim pavlova as one of their national foods, and they've been squabbling over its origin for a looong time. Apparently it really did originate in New Zealand though lol. I say this as an Australian, so to my fellow countrypeople: please don't lynch me.)
Finally, I drew this for a cultural food-themed art competition over at #APHetalia-Club on dA. I chose to do desserts and sweet foods. :D
From what I wrote on dA (and this is all internet-researched, so apologies for any mistakes!):
