James Hiller by SacredLugia James Hiller by SacredLugia
This is my poor portrayal of James Hiller, a character from a kid's show called Liberty's Kids, which used to air on PBS Kids in 2002/3. (This is also just a shading/stylizing test; I need to find a style to stick with :B)

I was studying China in my AP history textbook the other day when (as it always happens) my mind wandered away from the printed words and I started daydreaming. Somehow, I steered my thought process to shows I remember from when I was a kid, and this happened to be one of them. Although, all I was able to recall was that there was a female character with obnoxiously orange/red hair and it was a cartoon about the American Revolution. After five minutes of Googling, I found the show on Wikipedia, and memories returned. :la:

I distinctly remember watching this when I was around six; I was old enough to know it was a war between the British and Americans and that's about it. They would often say "the English did this" and "the Americans did that," and my small child brain was too under-developed to know which side was American and which side was British, because my reasoning stood that the "English" must refer to people who spoke the English language. So, I would often alter between shouting "Go Americans!" to "Go English!" despite the fact I was strongly against the redcoats at the time. XD

Anyway, I found it on Netflix and am now watching the whole series over again because I feel really cool when I watch shows for ten year olds. :dummy: ((I also remembered that I learned that hog's hair (I think?) was used to make a form of early toothbrushes from watching this. That's attractive.))

Liberty's Kids DiC/PBS Kids (I think. Meeerp)

I remember this show. Now that I think of it, there needs to be a crossover pic with LK and Assassin's Creed III (same time-period and all)...

Oh, I've never played the AC series before! That would probably be fun to see, though. ;p

Ah he looks so cute in this chibi form! Great choice of a background too, man they are so hard to draw! Also your story in the comments was adorable, I remember being like that too when I watched it...and I blame this show for causing me to fall in love with history, not that bad of a result, huh? I'm so glad you got distracted in class xD

I'm stoked its on Netflix! I can't believe they brought it back-let me know how you like it!

Aw, thank you! :hug: I found it on Google; I wanted to try something different. :giggle: Aw, you couldn't tell who was who either? c: Haha, I'm glad I'm not alone! As for helping me appreciate history, I gotta give that to the series Hetalia - it's helped me out on so many tests, since I'm taking Global and not American history the past two years. :dummy:

Hehe, of course! I haven't gotten too far; I had to take a break 'cause things got hectic IRL. It's waiting for me in my Instant Queue. :la:

Hurr hurr and the funny thing is this was never my childhood. In fact, I remember disliking the show. I'd only watch it if there was nothing else on TV.
