APH England_Golden Illusion by darkmello APH England_Golden Illusion by darkmello
Doodle pic, lack of detail (as always)

Little England (a.k.a Arthur Kirkland) from Axis Power Hetalia ^^
My fave chara (besides China and Russia) :heart:

Btw, I have unimportant question related to England in Hetalia, just curious...
Is England really have strange sense of food? (I never eat England's food)
My friend said that England's foods are tasteless, is it right? :?:?

Done in Photoshop 7.0
comment and critique much welcome :D

that was true some 20 or 30 years ago and they eat crips with vinegar *shudders* But nowadays that has changed a lot!! Top notch star cooks like Jamie Oliver, Nigella Lawson, Heston Blumenthal, Clare Smyth, or Rachel Allen from Ireland clearly show that pretty clearly.

my sister has an english friend & she invited her to her home-made english food, & she said it was really delicious!!,... it was some kind of coconut coockies cake....the reason that england taste of food is strange because the whole series suppossed to be a big sarcastic humor based on steriotypes!!!... the english food are kinda excuisite & high-class that of an english queen!!, so i bet most of english people in england have an aristocratic taste of food...., then again we should all know that england is a guy & this is another joke that his taste of food is strange!!....*if only he took cook lessons from chief ramsey* !!!! Xb :iconenglandwtfplz:

I love the childlike element in this picture, I've seen many pictures of a young England, but I find this one particularly peaceful and innocent, with a slightly otherworldly atmosphere. I love it so much! :heart:

I think the lack of detail actually adds to what's so charming about this picture. It's simplistic, but it suits the concept and the purity of the scene.

Oi, our food isn't that bad, though yes admittedly quite bland :XD: (Yorkshire puddings are gorgeous with the right gravy) Not too keen on the fish and chips though... but it's ok :D

Oh wow, your art is so beautifully done <3
Little Arthur looks so cute!

About our food. English food is very "bland" in comparison to a lot of other places. We don't tend to use herbs & spices much, neither do we add a lot of salt or other condiments to our dishes.
Our only real success in the culinary department is with sweet foods.

Wikipedia mentioned Europe making dry fun of England's... cuisine.

Also. Spotted dick. I have yet to meet a non-British person who can say that food's name with a straight face.
darkmello Featured By Owner Jun 29, 2009
oh, I open wikipedia and already know where the name came from, lol :D :D
darkmello Featured By Owner Jun 29, 2009

hmmm british food is LOVELY in winter beacause its proper winter food....nothing beats walking into a house that smells of potato hash or lancs hot pot when youve just come in after walking home in the freezing wind and rain ..with a broken brolly by your side. haha

Then in summer I guess its best to just rip on other countries foods :P
fantasy4eternity Featured By Owner Mar 28, 2009
wow thats beautiful! ^^
yeah im from england! the foods not TOO bad, roast dinner is delicious! and fish and chips is ok i guess...but yeah other than that, there isnt anything particularly special...other countries food is a lot better in comparison, i think...

English food may not be the most glamorous or exquisite food in the world, but I'd hardly call it tasteless.
Full English Breakfast?
Egg, bacon, sausages, hash browns, baked beans, mushrooms, half a tomato and (depending on where) sometimes a Black Pudding. Lovely stuff.
darkmello Featured By Owner Mar 4, 2009
That's sound great :heart:
I wish someday I can try it :D

I adore this, he's my favourite too! You've captured him perfectly!

Being English myself, I dont find our food tasteless. We dont use quite as many spices or herbs as other countries, but its not tasteless! I'm gonna send you over some of my mums home-made Sheppards Pie, now THATS tasty.

I cant get over how stunning this picture is. Fav'ed x

Very pretty pic, what a sweet English boy hehehe and I think it's awesome how you did this white glowy fairies! :aww:

As for English food... I find it pretty weird when people can say a country's food is tasteless. I think any nationality's food can be tasteless if it's not made right. Personally I like a lot of English foods, perhaps because some of the meals I grew up with were quite English really. I don't eat much red meat now, but I used to LOVE stews (which are quite Englishy) and roasts. And yeah I love fish and chips and... I dunno, I don't have a problem with their meals in general :D At all. And I have tasted very bland/tasteless Italian food in my life, for example. And other kinds which other people think are tasty, I don't like. So... here's me defending the English food. Oh yeah and English breakfasts, those are good too. I HAVE been to/in England twice and sure, some of the food isn't made that well, but it's the same here and I bet elsewhere. :shrug: People have different preferences when it comes to flavour and that's fine. :D
