New Spain and Peru by FlopyLopez New Spain and Peru by FlopyLopez
:rose:While reading info about the viceroyalty of Perú I decided it was about time I drew colonial María Isabel and Raquel :heart:
The viceroyalties of New Spain and Peru were the most important ones in America, as they were the ones with the most outstanding economy and social, politic establishment by the Spanish. They were Spain's spoiled girls ;P

Isabel (Perú)'s dress is inspired from the "tapada limeña" without the cloak covering her face… . I found out this fashion tendency was followed from women of high and middle class during the 300 years of viceroyalty, so I thought it would fit her nicely (and because I don't want to dress the colonies as maids).

By the way, I changed my Peru's name from María to María Isabel; I'll refer to her as Isabel. Mainly because the headcanon Panama I use is named María too and I don't want confusions, plus I wanted to change her name. Her name is María Isabel Rodríguez. :D
Yes, when she was a colony, she had long hair and usually wore one braid. She cut her hair at some point of her life; still haven't decided when. It might have been when the peruvian-bolivian confederation was dissolved, but I'm not sure yet.

Hope you like it! uvu

Ahh thank you so much for your kind words!
I use Easy Paint Tool SAI (or just known as SAI) for lineart and colouring. I add effects and backgrounds with Photoshop CS3 :)

Mann... Everyone uses SAI, but I cannot properly... When I used it, my art looked like a glorified version of MS Paint

:XD: It takes a lot of patience to get used to complicated programs.. I still don't know what all the settings mean, and I've had it for three years :P You can start looking up for SAI tutorias (I think there are plenty of them here in deviantART!)

They look pretty! And looking at this pic, I just made up this headcanon that back then, most of the colonies were a bit jealous of new Spain and Peru for getting Spain's attention the most. XD
(Sorry if that sounded too cruel)
