Perfect Lady (oh and Argentina next to her) by FlopyLopez Perfect Lady (oh and Argentina next to her) by FlopyLopez
Nothing really, I felt like drawing something very shiny in Himaruya style, and after I drew Tina I thought "oh I want to draw Ukraine" so she's standing there,next to Argentina and her dumb face haha

:bulletblue:Random Info: Brazil and Argentina are Ukraine's friends from South America, they met her around 1890s, with immigration. Uruguay and Paraguay have also had ukranian immigration, but the most significant number of Ukranians in South America stay in Argentina and Brazil.
As I view it, at some point Ukraine traveled to those countries and stayed some time to work in their farmlands, that's how she developed a friendship with them.
I think Ukraine is possibly one of Argentina's best female european friends! Or actually, one her best female friends, since at that time, she was in a rather conflictive situation with most of her neighbours; Argentina was a little isolated. The cultural connections with Ukraine remain until now, despite not being a numerous community.


I think the reason I like Ukraine so much it's because I've liked the country since I was a child. My little town, founded by the British who brought the railways, was populated with immigrants. The most important communities were the Spanish, Italian, Polish, Ukranian and Arab (Lebanon & syria). I've seen Ukranian clothes, dances, food and religion for my whole life, I went to a Catholic Ukranian Primary School, after all. While I don't seem to have any trace of ukranian blood myself (I'm 100% spaniard haha) I admire the country and it's culture :)
I wish canon aph Ukraine was portrayed as something more than a crybaby with huge boobs, though. :/ She is such a nice character.

I didn't expect to write all of this lmao but it's nice to find an opportunity to share this headcanon
I'll draw something better about their friendship sometime <3




Ukraine  Himaruya

De hecho así se le consideraba a Ukrania, se dice que Hidekaz la dibujo con el busto grande como referencia a la agricultura. Si resulta ser cierto intuyo que Argentina DEBE ser una chica.
Saludos :D

It's a terrific job. Besides, I agree with you about Argentina and Ukraine. Somewhere I've read about it, hehe. I'm so happy that you drew it! I can't put into words...

I really like to imagine Ukraine as a good friend to Argentina who gives her advice about being a woman (since she didn't have many female friends at all :XD: ) and Argentina admires how pretty Ukraine is :heart: (and they both love cows!)
