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
