Inang Bayan by Bambz-Art Inang Bayan by Bambz-Art
The title is Filipino for "Motherland" which is the name of the character representing The Philippines in the play, Kahapon, Ngayon at Bukas(Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow).

Another inspiration is Hetalia. I was thinking what kind of design would The Philippines have if the author decided to make one? Then again, if I was in Himaruya-sensei's shoes I won't make a character for The Philippines. Seeing how easily we are offended by such little jokes, who knows what kind of reaction we'll make when we see The Philippines look like a maid or something. I'm not saying we should take insults lightly, but don't we have more pressing issues to attend to other than what foreigners think of us? We value outside opinion too highly. Also, rather than being insulted, shouldn't we take these offending jokes as a reflection of our society? There is some truth in them after all. The faster we acknowledge who we are and what's wrong with us, the faster we'll be able to improve for the better.

Okay, I'll end here since I'm sounding too high and mighty. Sorry about that. >///<
I welcome opposing opinions and critiques of any sort but please make your critique meaningful, thoughtful and helpful :)

This is so lovely.
(This is a little bit embarassing, but can I use your post for my Hetalia infobox?)

This is Maria Clara "Claire/Lei" de la Cruz-Densen. Fits the Filipino woman persona perfectly! ;)

The Densen surname, because in my Hetalia headcanon, my OTP is Denmark and The Philippines, and they just got married last CHRISTmas... :D
