Translation of Author’s comments:
I BRING YOU TODAY THE MALVINAS SISTERS!!!
Soledad (Spanish name for East Falkland), grumpy and cold
and Gran Malvina (Spanish name for West Falkland) loving and crazy
IT TOOK ME LIKE TWO HOURS AND A HALF TO DRAW THEM!!!
And, yeah, the background isn’t here, but I didn’t feel like making one =w=
Both are Argentina’s sisters, but it’s still not known if they’re Diego’s (Argentina) or UK sisters x3
They’re cold with people they don’t know.
I’m glad submissions are open because I always hated this OC LOL.
The art is so crappy, the research is poor and the fact that the author made tons of drawings of them with Argentina’s flag and stuff, makes me sick. There’s nothing more inaccurate than drawing the Falkland Islands surrounded by Argentinian flags! >:( (They are fuc*ing British and I say this from my chair located in Argentina)
I roleplayed twice with the author in 2010, it was a pain in the ass having to read that her OCs had an army of corgis, that they were perfect at playing the violin and that Iggy could turn them into males with his magic (shitty excuse to RP yaoi with Argentina/America/England)…
And blah blah blah…
I feel like both of these OCs are the same image, except mirrored and with some minor edits in colour and hair, but that’s about it. I’m going to overlay the OCs over one another in a later post, just to see if they really are the same exact art.
But, submitter, you are correct. Most Falkland Islanders are, ethnically, mostly Scottish or Welsh. So…while I can see Argentina being somewhere in their past, the population and the fact that they are a British colony needs to be represented.
But your experience with these OCs seems utterly awful. I’m sorry that you had to deal with that.
