[HETAOC] Younger Philippines by melonstyle [HETAOC] Younger Philippines by melonstyle
I keep meaning to draw my Philippines at different ages throughout her history. Lmao I didn't mean to make her look this young here, I pitch her at looking somewhere between 8-10 years old when she met Spain idk she was always a shortie though, that's why she looks younger pff//bricked

anyways I headcanoned that New Spain (:iconnerdyjones:'s babbu particularly) often did Philippines' hair for her... and it was during this time that my Philippines got into tying her hair back a lot. She found it more practical and um, I guess she started to act more feminine too. I feel like Philippines can be both badass and feminine depending on the situation and stuff anyways--

and none of this 'Spain mistook her for a boy lol' crap pfffff, I feel like he took one look at Philippines and saw a young girl--

but yeah this is early years of Spanish colonisation. I'm hoping to draw her pre-colonial looks soon! uvu

and yeah my Philippines wasn't always called Maricela-- (Maricela is a combination of the names Maria and Celia though!) - she used to be a Maria when she was a little one 8I

so yeah Philippines / Las Islas Filipinas / Maria Celia de los Santos belongs to :iconmelonstyle:

thank yoooouuu! :D I felt like a hairbun would suit Philippines more during her later years of the Spanish Colonisation, and so for earlier on, I wanted her hair to reflect someone younger and not quite mature, and I thought the braid would be a cute idea, ahaha-- XD
