Alt-J and Loyle Carner land top prizes at Britain’s NME Awards

  Alt-J and Loyle Carner land top prizes at Britain’s NME Awards Alt-J and Loyle Carner landed the top prizes at the 2017 NME Awards in London on Wednesday night (14Feb18). The U.K. hip-hop star beat the likes of Dua Lipa, Liam Gallagher, Ed Sheeran, and Stormzy to land the Best British Male prize, while indie rockers Alt-J were named Best British Band at the bash. Other major awards went to J Hus, whose record Common Sense was named Best Album and Charli XCX, whose song Boys picked up Best Track. English rockers Kasabian took home the trophy for Best Live Artist, while Muse claimed the Best Festival Headliner prize, and Ariana Grande was handed the Hero of the Year prize. Her One Love Manchester fundraising concert for the victims of the terror attack on her concert in the city was Musical Moment of 2017. Honorary awards went to Liam Gallagher, who followed his brother Noel in being named a Godlike Genius by NME editors, and Garbage rocker Shirley Manson, who was honoured with an Icon award. After accepting her prize, Shirley told WENN she hoped the honour would inspire women in music. “I feel very strongly that women are not recognised enough in our culture, in our art and our industry, so me getting an award, is like, 'Yeah, I’m gonna take it'. Do I deserve it? I don’t care.

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."

Iran

 

She wrote:

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.

Meet Anastasia Bulgakova. She's a Russia-based artist who specializes in fantasy and sci-fi art . Anastasia's art has been all over Tumblr, Reddit and other corners of the internet lately because of her series re - imagining countries of the world as sci-fi/fantasy warriors.

That was the question that Russian artist Anastasia Bulgakova thought about for a year before starting her latest project. Countries of the world re - imagined as anime characters, countries draw as humans, and gorgeous cartoon girls.

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. 

Japan, Russia, USA and Germany
