A Patriot by humon A Patriot by humon
For more [link]

I just wanted to play around with style, shadow and color, and ended up drawing an overly patriotic picture of Agent 250.

Most of the characters in the Niels comics are Americans (Except Niels, 300, Rose, and Magnus of course), but 250 is by far the most American American out of all of them, and in many ways he is what the media from his youth painted as the perfect American man: A patriotic Christian who is fighting for his country.

And he does think of himself as an American. Not as more of an American than his fellow countrymen, but he is very proud of the stars and stripes. He doesn't even care much about where his family originally came from as a lot of Americans do, because this country is were he was born. That he does have a strong interest in Scotsmen is another matter...

None of this is meant to be negative by the way. Being American just means more to him than to most of the other Americans in the comic.

Though he wouldn't wrap himself in the flag any time soon. That's a bit too much even for him. :XD:

I'm a very patriotic American Pagan, and I still like this picture a ton (motto being: don't try to convert me or sneer at me - and don't be a bad person - and we'll get along no matter what your religion is). Agent 250 is one of my favorite characters, and he looks great here. You work is so awesome!

Wearing the flag is against flag code, looks like he's not much of a patriot :/

A true patriot would know that wearing the stars and stripes as clothing is against the flag code XD

Just a comment, not criticism against the artist! (just making sure that's clear)
