30 years. by FlopyLopez 30 years. by FlopyLopez
:bulletred: Well, I'm not really sure how to explain this...

Today, April 2nd, it is the Day of the Veterans and Fallen of the Malvinas War, on this holiday we remember the soldiers that fought and died on said war, in 1982. Nowadays this topic is very sensitive for us argentinians and specially the ones who lost their fathers, brothers, sons and friends. It's a black day for Argentina, in fact.

Long story short: We lost the war. Great Britain still 'owns' the Falklands Islands and its goverment refuses to negotiate with Argentina about the sovereignty. However, Argentina will never give up on having a pacific solution. Damn it, we just want peace.

So abut this picture, Argentina is thinking of her little 'sister' Malvinas, she misses being with her, she misses her smile, she misses her love. On the other side, Malvinas (who prefers to be called Falklands) doesn't miss Argentina. She is happy being with England, and that makes Argentina feel horribly sad.

I didn't want to make a too sensitive nor violent picture. Also my drawing skills don't help me too much, but I hope this little tribute is okay. Really, tell me if this is offensive. :(

:bulletgreen: Supongo que no es necesario que vuelva a explicar algo tan conocido por todos, así que nada más les digo el significado del dibujo.

Argentina no puede ver a Malvinas muy seguido, así que nada más le queda recordar el poco tiempo que estuvo con ella en paz. La extraña mucho, Malvi es muy importante para ella, y le duele mucho que la niña la ignore y que prefiera estar con Inglaterra. Cada dos de abril, luego de visitar el cementerio de los soldados caídos, Argentina se va sola a tomar un café en algún restaurante local de allí y se sienta a reflexionar, terminando por llorar en silencio, sin que nadie se de cuenta que la guerra le afecta más de lo que parece. No quiere perder las esperanzas que todo algún día se va a solucionar, pero la realidad es más dura de lo que ella quisiera.

Wow eso sonó profundo :/
Como ya dije antes no quise hacer algo muy fuerte o violento, además de que si quisiera mis habilidades para dibujar no son suficientes, pero espero que esto cuente como un pequeño tributo y dejar en claro que sí me importa este día y la situación que está pasando. De hecho me desespera y me da bronca, pero eso es mi opinión.

Espero que por lo menos le haya gustado el concepto, OTL.

As I have said on many a similar picture, the fact of the matter is that the people of the Falkands don't like Argentinas' behaviour. The Islanders have made their opinion quite clear, they don't want to be part of Argentina. The British government has always said that the Islanders have the final say on their status. If Argentina is serious about dialogue, they should talk to the Falklands government.

Like you, I am a Hetalia fan. I see The Falklands as a young, pretty woman who has inherited her fathers stubbornness (and eyebrows!) who is constantly being put upon by Argentina who claims that she's his. No matter how many times she tells him no, he keeps demanding her father enter into marriage negotiations. Arthur replies that she is a independent woman and he won't make her decisions for her. However, like any good father (and by her request) he will protect her.

Yes I am aware of Malvinas/Falkland's position on the matter. 

However I don't understand what was your point on the last paragraph. Are you referring to Argentina as a male? And that Argentina demands England to marry Malvinas? Because if that's what you meant then I don't think it would work with my characters since my Argentina is female and Malvinas/Falklands is a younger girl and Argentina has a motherly aspiration towards her relationship with her, not a romantic one. Sorry if this seems confusing, but I really did not understand that 'marriage negotiations' thing. Pehaps you thought the brown haired girl  in the picture is Malvinas/Faklands? She is Argentina, actually.

No sorry I should have been clearer: I imagine Falklands as female and Argentina as male taking after Spain mostly in looks etc.

Oh, I see. Well, that's not the case here ^^; But even if Argentina was male I'd still see their relationship as purely platonic, not romantic.

Rustic-King Featured By Owner Oct 4, 2013  Hobbyist Writer
I'm sure you would, and you're entitled to interpret the relationship any way you want, but I still think it more accurate to say that Falklands wants to be left alone by Argentina.

Aside from all that, it is genuinely good art.

But I DO know that /MalvinasFalklands doesn't want to be with Argentina and prefers to remain a British overseas territory, haha. In this picture (wich was drawn a year and a half ago) I portrayed Argentina's desire to be with her dear Malvinas, however that doesn't mean the other girl feels the same way :XD:
Oh and thanks!

A fantastic picture, really well done

I am British, and I feel our government is completely mishandling the situation (the real power in this country are rich, right wing bankers that shake their swords at the mere mention of "peaceful negotiations")

A peaceful, final referendum from the Islanders themselves and shared oil finds would be so simple in practice, but they're making a mess of it.

I am really glad you like it, I was afraid british people would get mad at me for doing this ^^;

I don't like what my president is doing neither. She's doing everything for 'politic propaganda' to make the ignorants that follow her believe everything she's doing is good for the country, and that we are in the perfect country thanks to her. Meh, I think she's exagerating the patriotism feel she wants to give us. I don't like the fact that the british goverment is so convinced that we want to start another war because in fact, we don't. We are not prepared and we already learnt from our mistakes. Sometimes I really wish those islands just got their independence and the UK and Argentina calmed down, geez.

brachio30 Featured By Owner Jul 23, 2012
I don't think the Presidents methods are entirely just either (standing in front of the Falklands/Malvinas map with an Argentine flag over it didn't help much) and that this issue should be left with the decolonization committee

Most public opinion over here is that "The Islanders are British, therefore they should remain in Britain" even though we don't have any authority with governing the Islands.

All I can say is don't trust the British media on this, they like everything to be pro-UK, no matter what the story is xD

Yep, nowadays they still refuse to dialogue, their reason is self-determination for the islanders (not something wrong, actually, but that's because all the people there are british and of course they wouldn't want to change).

There not British they are citizens of a British overseas territory. There is nothing to negotiate as long as the Falklanders themselves want to stay part of the commonwealth Also the people there were all born there and can trace their ancestry back to before Argentina was a country. Nice artwork though.

Wow, it's okay! I have something to say but I don't want to start a political debate in English because it's not my first language and I don't feel like my vocabulary would help me, so just stick to your opinion, it really doesn't affect me.
Thanks for the compliment though.

a tu diseño en general, en los personajes, respecto a el fondo en la atmósfera, en personalizar/diseñar el fondo de el dibujo en sí con texturas variadas, a esos pequeños detalles que no son muy necesarios pero le dan un gran efecto a el dibujo como el difuminado a transparente en el fondo de malvinas, y el brillo que tiene alrededor

a todo <3

¡Muy linda pieza! ^-^ Me gusta mucho~ A pesar de que este día es triste para nosotros, me agrada que el concepto que utilizaste sea calmo y reflexivo. Creo que es lo que nos queda por hacer, justamente: sentarse tranquilamente y reflexionar sobre los hechos llevados a cabo este mismo día, hace 30 años. No mucho se puede hacer por ahora, pero que estamos en el camino correcto, lo estamos. Es ese, el que siempre fue, el de la palabra y el reclamo firme y pacífico.

El tiempo dirá y dará razón. Pero el tiempo se toma sus días, y a pesar de que es sabio, eso no impide que duela un poco la espera.

Quizá algún día recuperemos Malvinas. Dios quiera que así sea. Y si no ha de ser así, Dios quiera que podamos volver a ser una familia de todos modos.


¡Te felicito por esta obra! :heart:

Vamos, ¡ánimo! =( Yo tampoco existía cuando pasó lo de la guerra... pero nos queda lo que nos cuentan padres/amigos/profesores/conocidos que sí la vivieron. Yo creo que nuestras generaciones están cerca de ello, porque nacimos cercanos al evento (sólo han pasado 30 años)... y por eso nos es transmitido todo con mucho más fervor que lo que será transmitido por nosotros a generaciones que nazcan más alejadas en el tiempo. No te culpo por andar de bajos ánimos, más no te preocupes tanto. Yo prefiero tener memoria, pero siempre teniendo presente que ahora disfrutamos de una democracia que espero se prolongue en el tiempo. Hay que quererla y celebrarla. Ver los vistos buenos que nos ha dejado un evento tan traumático como una guerra... pues aunque parezca mentira, alguna que otra cosa puede ser rescatada... como la enorme valentía de quienes fueron voluntariamente y con la convicción de defender a sus seres queridos y recuperar lo que sentían suyo por derecho. Sé que puede sonar un poco extraño... pero considero que es la mejor manera de recuperarse: siendo honestos, teniendo memoria, reclamando pacíficamente, condenando las acciones bélicas, pero no menospreciando el esfuerzo de quienes lo dieron todo.

No te preocupes... Argentina es fuerte. Y va a levantarse cuantas veces haga falta.

¡De nada! Sí que es bello este dibujito que hiciste~ ^O^
