:iconhetalia-100-guises: Submission: 1) Cowboy

Alright, two down...98 to go!

I wasn't too sure about this guise at first, but as I worked on it, it kinda grew on me. The inspiration for this guise came from the Clint Eastwood movie "The Good, the Bad and the Ugly", mostly with the poncho he's wearing. It's the first thing I thought of and it wouldn't let me go, so I just went with it, lol. The background still feels a little rushed to me but I'm happy all the same. :)

Also, I would like to dedicate this piece to my friend kelbora :iconkelbora: whose been having a rough time as of late and I felt this pic could lift her spirits. A cosplay of hers also served as the inspiration for it's name so I hope she doesn't mind my borrowing it ;)

Hope this puts a smile on your face, my friend :iconcatsmileplz:

Well, the Confederate America was more like the bastard child with conditions.

Cowboy America just as sexy as pirate England! I like how Nantucket is sticking out from his hat.

Lol YES! Just like the fights a nerd has over whether Captain Kirk or Picard is better. :XD:
Personally, I think Wayne is better. :w00t:

:omg: So... AWESOME! Seriously, Scarlette, this is AMAZING! The detail on everything, the astounding coloring job, the lighting, the shading, the colors, ASDFFGHKJKSSASGH! :iconrainbowdashsoawesome: And I love how his hair fwip is still trying to get out from under his hat, as if it's trying to say "This hat cannot contain me! I'll show you all!" :XD: Yes, I am random sometimes. Ignore meeee~

(BTW, how's the song list I sent you working out? :) See any of the new song suggestions that you like, or any of the ones that you suggested that you think could work?)

Thank you very much! :D There was a point at which I thought I was putting too much effort into the coloring but I just kinda ignored that after a while and went with my gut, lol.

He is nothing without that hair fwip (love that word for it, lol) Yeah sure, it could be just some random cowboy, but that fwip makes it Alfred ;) (there's more to him than that of course, lol, I just had to include it in there since it's pretty much an indicator that it's Alfred/America and not another character)

(It's coming along, sorry for the delay ^^; I'm trying to work out my own ideas as I've pretty much eliminated a lot of songs from my list and seeing what I get from the songs you've sent. Hopefully this week i'll have something for you :))

NP, hon! :hug: Yeah, it turned out awesomely! I'm glad you went with your gut in this case. =D

Oh, I don't know. Who else has blonde hair, blue eyes, glasses, and would dress up as a cowboy? I'm pretty sure Sweden wouldn't try that. =P But yes "fwip" is an awesome word. I love it. :love:

(No, it's fine, take your time. :) I know how much brainstorming something like this takes. :dead: I just wanted to know how it was going, that's all. =D I can't wait to see what ideas you've got! :excited:)

Lol, another one of those cases where I had to tear myself away and say it was finished ^^;

You never know, lol, but his scary face would definitely give him away :fear: (give him the right outfit and he'd make a great villain, lol)

(Ok, I just feel bad with how long I take with these things though because I know how eager I can get, lol. My fault for wanting to be thorough, I guess ^^;)

You know, between you and me, I never thought Sweden looked particularly scary per se. Intimidating, sure, but not scary. But I'll take your word about the outfit. =D

(Being thorough is a good thing, lol. =D Better than going off half-cocked with only a half backed idea, at any rate. And anyway, the delay just makes me pounce all the more eagerly on any notes that I get. ;))

Okay, NOW I see the comment about Kel's cosplay in the description... :iconheaddeskplz: Sorry, I just woke up and I'm still a bit dense.

But that being said, I'd like to tell you - for future reference - that you could submit this directly to Alfred's folder on Hetalia 100 Guises rather than the Featured folder (which functions almost like the Favourites...but for Group Members). I just checked the settings and you should be able to do that now.

It's okay - at least you know now :) And fortunately, it's not like this group gets swamped by submissions so it's no huge sacrifice on my part to move it manually.

Wow...he looks AMAZING. Seriously, he does :) I've always liked the "cowboy" getup on Alfred, but looking at this...it's different from the canon design, first of all, and I can't help but wonder if it was influenced by Kel's cosplay (at least in part).

Oh dude...you are so blowing me out of the water right now with this thing - so I'm glad it's not a competition!

:iconscarlettediscord:
ScarletteDiscord Featured By Owner May 27, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Thank you, I was worried about him for a bit since the whole "Alfred-as-cowboy" thing is one of his most common looks so I tried to do something different with the poncho. It was just something I hadn't seen yet :) There was a slight influence, lol, but mostly for the name as the outfit itself was already designed and colored by the time I noticed a similarity. And I thought it would be a nice gesture to help her through right now :)

:iconembarrasedplz: Thanks >////< I'm just happy that people like it. There are plenty of artists that I admire who are better than me so I'm glad for that too.

Yeah...we all seem to be on the same wavelength as far as posting stuff for Kel's concerned right now. True, I can't draw as well as you, but let's just say that she REALLY liked Charlie the Hamster as well :)

I like this outfit compared to the canon one, actually. That one's...always grated on my nerves a little bit simply because it's completely anachronistic for Colonial America :P I like this version a lot more.
