Conquest 2 - APH PI,Palau,Guam by FrauV8 Conquest 2 - APH PI,Palau,Guam by FrauV8
Another pic of my APH OC Philippines and her "suitors," but with 2 younger sisters, Guam and Palau, who both suffered similar fates of being ruled by many of the same boss countries.

Of the 3 sisters, Palau was the most fun - she has a cute little jellyfish on her head. XD
There was a documentary I was listening on the radio about Palau, and they mentioned about these beautiful golden jellyfish that live in this giant lake, and they're harmless to humans because their stingers had evolved so much since they have no natural predators (here's what they look like: [link])

And some of you people are probably wondering "Palau? Where's Palau?" especially since they accepted the prisoners from Cuba.
Palau is this tiny, tiny little island somewhere in between Japan and the Philippines. She was under Spanish control along with Guam and the Philippines until the Spanish-American War. Germany was around the area and paid a lot of money for Spain's Southeast Asian islands since he hardly had any overseas countries when everyone else did, but only got Palau (America took Guam and the Philippines).
But not long after that, Japan takes over in WW1 after Germany is defeated, then America comes over to play hero and takes over in WW2. XD
And in 1994, Palau is finally recognized country thanks to America, so she's still a child just like Sealand - except Sealand isn't recognized as a country like Palau. XD

Guam is still under American control, so if I had to describe her in a story, she'd probably be a crazy fangirl of America. XD

And we all know the Philippines' story: Spain finds her and abuses her, England thought she was cursed so he gives her back to Spain, Germany wanted her badly but America takes her away after the Spanish-American war, Japan captures her in WW2, and finally America saves her and gives her freedom (he always has to be the hero, doesn't he? XD )

Now about this pic...

I tried to make it look close to the original artist drawing style, but you can never 100% copy the master. XD

I also decided to keep things simple, so no gradients, "Magic Wand" tool, or major textures (the background has a slight texture).
I just used default brushes and tried to make it look like if I used a tablet (touch-pad's like finger-painting XD ).

Let me know what you think. :D

I didn't create APH, and she's not an official character in the series.
Therefore, you're more than free to do so. :)

I never watched APH, but I knew the whole character concept. I always imagined Guam being a character, but my character is... totally way off from what you did here. I imagined a tall and robust man. But then again, some Pacific Islanders nowadays have a different stereotypical image.

im not sure if guam would be a girl or a boy since the story of fu'una and punta
spain found guam and thought guam liked to steal
when he/she was only curious of what spain possessed
japan took advantage of guam
france named him/her"guam" when it was really "guahan"
america saved guam i think
guam was tall,a bit tan,and strong,plus a little territorial
spain and japan eventualy stopped taking control of guam
japan visits alot often along with america, spain dosnt come often

BTW, why do in almost every story/explanation... why do you guys always say England thinks Philippines is cursed? XD

It would've been better if England is defeated by the Bad Touch Trio (or something.. just twist the damn plot. XD).. and that's the reason he lost Philippines...

Okay. My point being is.. some people portray England as lame or something if the "England thinks Philippines is cursed"-plot is used. LAWL.
I'm not bashing you or anything.. I'm just suggesting... :D
Please don't hate. >__<

*U* I love your Guam, NGL.

Also, as a *cough*bornandraised*cough* Guamanian, I'll just drop a liiiiitttle info on my tiny island:

In regards to Guam is still under American control, so if I had to describe her in a story, she'd probably be a crazy fangirl of America. XD ...Well. Truth is, the natives of Guam, the Chamorros, aren't that tight with Americans. Guam is primarily only under control of the US as a navy base in the Pacific. The only reason the US doesn't give up Guam or let us have out "independence", is because Guam is used to refuel US Navy ships, and is also used as an air force base. Their intentions are primarily to keep a little base out near Asia, but other than that, people up in the big buildings in DC couldn't really give two shits about Guam, save for Congresswoman Madeline Bordallo, who is actuall from Guam, even though she gets little speaking time.

Though Guam is a US territory, we are under their laws and jurisdictions, but we still have our own government. However, though we are allowed to elect and vote for our chose governor, lt. gov., etc, we are not allowed to vote for the President, which upsets many Guamanians. Especially because of the fact that we are born as American citizens, and the only way we can vote is if we take up residency in one of the 50 states and register for voting.

Guam, however, though it is primarily used as a military base for the US, is a lovely tourist destination. Majority of the island's income is from tourism, especially Japanese tourists. Many hotels, shops, and the like opened up on Guam primarily as tourist hot-spots, but we still retain and show the culture of the island everywhere.

In regards to Guam as a personification, I would say that she loves Japan for his money, wants attention/support from America, and has quite a grudge against America as well, for quite a few reasons. The most recent being military overcrowding. But that's an entirely different thing.

I apologize if I've just bombarded you with drabbles. OTL. Also, feel free to ask me any questions you have about Guam or Guam's culture? ;V;

**Also, I was wondering. Would you mind submitting this deviation to the gallery at #HetaliaPacific?

:iconfrauv8:
FrauV8 Featured By Owner Jun 11, 2010  Student Digital Artist
So Guam has a hate against America just like the Philippines used to... maybe she makes a 'I hate America-as-my-Boss Club' with her little sister Palau instead? :XD:
(though the 'Crazy Fan Girl' thing would still work if she's just pretending to like America so she can try get his attention :XD: )


No, no... I don't mind long Comments/Responses.
If it helps clarify things and provide interesting info that I can use for possible future works, then that's a good thing. :)
However, if it's demeaning, rude, and offensive not only to me but to others then it'll be another issue.


**I don't at all - feel free to suggest it for the :iconhetaliapacific: Gallery and I'll put it in there. :)

FrauV8 Featured By Owner Dec 2, 2009  Student Digital Artist
Oh, Germany's was there in PI alright... :XD:

Basically, Germany with 8 ships were at Manila Harbor to protect their interests there and waiting to see what will happen to the Philippines 'cause he's interested in annexing her as one of his colonies.
America arrives, so Germany cuts them off from the harbor and refuses to salute them (especially since he had 8 armed ships versus one measly American ship); America swings his big stick and threatens to cause a conflict with Germany if he continues being hostile and takes the Philippines as his own after defeating Spain, thus kicking Germany out (sometimes I wonder if this was a factor why America and Germany are so distant in APH). :XD:

How I know this?
I remember briefly reading about it in my AP World History book, and lots of research online for my story on the Philippines (ie. this Spanish-American War article: [link] ).

(I have lots of family members affected by this - their homes had been washed away, my aunt and uncle lost her jeep, it's just really bad over there :( And my mother plans to visit there this December, so it's going to be interesting this time around for her to see everything she remembered all her life now gone)
