Anastasia Bulgakova is a Russian digital illustrator and she is behind these incredible works of art of countries as people.

She imagined the characters with some stereotypical attributes but also created an imaginative backstory, often drawing on the relationships between different countries in the real world.

Anastasia usually uses Photoshop to create her art and posts it to her page on Art Station.

The form of art she produces is similar to a kind of manga known as Hetalia - which was adapted from Japanese webcomic Hetalia: Axis Powers

She wrote on her page: "I draw personifications of different countries. All of them will be militant and warrior-like, with dirt and blood. Not because of some political persuasion, but simply because that what I always draw in any case, and the idea of warrior-countries gives a lot of creative freedom. Every character is going to have some stereotypical attributes that I am going to use in one way or another."

My first ancient civilizations character.

I was interested in arabian tales. You know, Aladdin, djins, travelers and heroes in sands, mysterious creatures and so on.

I didn't know to which country should I attach to my character. After reading a few articles I decided that it would be Iran.

England

Even though it's England and not Great Britain, I chose Union Jack's colours, since they are more recognised. The hairstyle is wild and red, since he is a punk. I have a few versions with different heads that you can see in the link below.

Canada

Canada is simple guy with puppy eyes. He is kind and not conflicting. Prefers to be at home and not look for any problems in others' battles. He only fights in sports- hockey. He finds it honest and cheerful. Because of his success in hockey, he's called "The King of ice". Sometimes a crown appears over his head and he often dreams about future victories.
