Uncle Sam's Debt by CrimsonMagpie Uncle Sam's Debt by CrimsonMagpie
Another image for the third issue of Thunk, which you can see here [link] ! :meow:

This is a comment upon the USA's financial situation within the world economy, especially with their arch-rivals / bosom-buddies China. Uncle Sam is fun to draw, and this isn't the last time I'll be depicting him. In all seriousness he's an awesome character to work on. ;)

Thanks to *tintits for showing me how to digitally fix the colours of his hat, because I bollocksed them up.... :paranoid:

Watercolour and pen on paper

I've never drawn Uncle Sam myself, but I love his character design and am really tempted to try. itcheh

I found his face the most interesting part to draw; there's so many different things one can do with Drawing human representations of different countries would be an ace opportunity to practice charactarisation. :p

What some certain people don't understand is the fact that China doesn't really gain anything from giving endless loans to America. If they aren't paid back, which they aren't, then they lose that money. Someday China will up and refuse to give the U.S. government more loans.

Imagine if you were the CEO of the world's largest bank. You are approached by the CEO of a large corporation to give them a loan to keep capital going, due to continual financial losses every quarter. This particular corporation has not paid off any of the debts it amassed in the last century, and its CEO and every one of his predecessors has explicitly expressed the intention of never paying off any future loans. Would you give these guys the loan?

So sad that our economy is in such bad shape that we're losing to the Reds. DX

Their economy is tied closely to the success of the Western economy though; if the USA fails China fails too. =p
