ummm, well firstly - Philippines is one of my main OCs so I felt obligated to do something. Secondly, I've had this sketch sitting around since forever. Thirdly, idk, I was bored enough to try and spend the day working on this when I probably should be doing other things, lmao. Oh well.
So it's Philippines' Independence Day! So I drew her more present self, which is more brightly coloured and has the Philippine flag in there - the position of the star on her hand was deliberate cuz idk, effective? And then off to the side is Philippines when she was younger and a Spanish colony. The chains on her wrists and the darkness and faded look is her darker past, where she was more trapped. She's still looking forward though, towards her older, brighter self! She knows she will reach that future someday, and her future self embraces it fully, she feels she can fly free now.
That's kind of the ideas I was getting at anyway. I used a different colouring style, but it doesn't show as much here, ahaha.
Anyway, this fanart is dedicated to the Philippines/Filipinos/etc. Also to
, because she was my 600th watcher, and she wanted to see an Independence Day fanart of my Philippines OC. So yeeeeaahh--
Faves and comments always appreciated~
