Hmn, well, I don't usually go for minimalism or vector art, but...it's Italy. Mini Italy. A design that's simple, bright & clean suits him perfectly.

I decided to go with this strange pastel-e green 'cause a.) there's no way I was going to stripe the wallpaper green, white & red to match the Italian flag, and b.) the colour fit the bill for the whole simple, bright & clean-thing. Ditto for the monochrome.

'Make Pasta. Not war.' is a quote from the comic strips. I'd link the exact strip, but, I'm much too lazy to go and find it. ^__^; Haha~

Uh, let's see...right. On to the technical things:

Program: Photoshot CS5
Tools: Round brush (1px-4px), pen tool, pattern stamp (pattern self-made).
Time: A couple of hours? '___'; *didn't check*
Changes to Original Image: Other than the vectoring? The flag's totally re-done. It's based on the original, but, the position and size of the flag in the base image weren't quite right, so...yeah. That's new. *fails*
Base Image: The base image came from this lovely scan, brought to us by the fabulous FlyAwayGrenade.
Fonts: The larger, non-bitmap font is 'Avant Que...'
The smaller/bitmap font (used on both the subtext & sig.) is '04b03'

P.s., Other characters wouldn't work as well with this idea as Italy (well, maybe America... XD), but, I'm considering making similar walls for them anyway. XD *shot* Yes? No? Let me know what you thing~ X3
