So, early on in the Sochi Olympics, there was a flag mix-up between Canada, Netherlands, and USA. When I shared the score board with a friend on FB who happens to RP Canada from Hetalia, she screamed out (in character) "NO! Give me back my Maple Leaf!" Aaaaaand, that prompted me to do my first Hetalympic painting. I feel bad that it took the entirety OF the Sochi Olympics to actually get the things done.
It was a pain in the ass to paint. Canada was the MOST cooperative character. He's paler than I had expected, but I figured...he takes his Maple Leaf VERY seriously.
For those of you who have NOT figured it out yet, YES, I KNOW the flags are wrong. That's the joke.
First time painting America and Netherlands. America's map of the US was a pain to paint too. The joke there, for those that don't know, America, despite having traveled the world, tends to only use a map of the USA to find things...a nod to how most Americans tend to forget anything exists outside of our own country.
The characters are from Hetalia if you haven't guessed by now. Also, in case you can't see America's map too well, the images are of the Statue of Liberty, The Seatle Weather Needle, Mount Rushmore, and the Alamo.
