APH - Brigantessa e Soldato Regio (Sketch) by RizafromKeron APH - Brigantessa e Soldato Regio (Sketch) by RizafromKeron
I think that's the first time I draw (not deformed) Romano and Veneziano Vargas.... They look too serious, haha. Italian pride and all that jazz! X'D

Little useless historical information as usual:

Brigantage/Brigantry: after Italian unification in 1861 poor people in Southern Italy fought against the new northern italian government becoming bandits (killing and stealing in the name of the liberty of Southern Italy, protected, hidden and helped by most of the southern italy people who didn't like a bit the new situation). So soldiers from Northern Italy were sent South to sedate these rioters in blood. Among the brigants there were some female ones, like Michelina de Cesare.

For 5 years we fought a bloody civil war. So much for an italian unification... :S

Veneziano is dressed like a northern italian soldier, of course. Don't know if I wanna colour it, it was just to try and draw some dress and uniform (and trying to draw the Vargas Brothers - I'm not Vargas virgin anymore! ) in truth! X'D

Hahahahahha nooooooo of course not, I'm sure your italians will be astounding as usual since you're putting so much into that drawing (and the pirates were for my Birthday, oeh! _ It was important to draw them! XD) ! And what are you talking about? No original? We have totallydifferent styles. You're more into fightings and blood and males (loads of sexy males! :iconsoaparthurplz: ) , so no connections at all with this and no comparisons! u.u In truth it's 'cause I've been listening to Americano by lady gaga for 2 weeks at least and I DON'T KNOW WHY since it speaks of a latino girl and an american boy I had this suddenly wish to draw the Italy brothers! X'D
My mind is totally absurd.
And proud of it!
:iconyayfemitalyplz:


Thank you, always so kind. :iconsoaparthurplz: No need to compliment me for the clothes, I didn't invented them but shamefully copied from some pictures from my book about the Meridional Question. X'3

Well i do need to redraw the poses anyways....but the idea still isnt original. So sad.
I still love this though! And I was looking for a good reference for Feliciano's uniform, so I guess I'll just use this! :iconus-xdplz: Best reference I've found yet!
Crap...cant use this for Romano's outfit though.....he's not a girl in mine.
(I LOVE HOW YOU DREW HIM/HER!!! SHE/HE LOOKS GREAT!)

They were in the same poses?! Aw, I can't believe it!!!! :iconfinallyplz: (cursing inside) I thought that you would have drawn some fight scene and I did a still pose on purpose! The fudge!!!!
:iconromanosulkplz:
(I would have minded about the similities if I had been at your place, but I knew you don't want to "copy" other people work, so.... Aaaaaah, I needed to watch at your sketch before starting mine! X3 Hadn't thought about it) Don't change the poses for me... If something, draw two pictures! :iconitalyraepfaceplz:

It's cause american google image doesn't love italian history! :iconromanosulkplz: Haha, look for "Brigantaggio" with google image, there's a lot of cool ideas for Romano's outfits! :3 Or you could crossdress Romano, I'd approve, haha! :P

Oh no no no! I misled you again! They are already in different poses, but I need to fix them anyways. I was just saying that.....you know, cant remember why I bothered to bring that up...but I'm still gonna draw them. Gotta fix them though. Gotta make them look cooler than yours (not gonna happen but I'll try)

yay! References! Thank you my dear!
I could draw him in a maid outfit...perfect symbolization of the north taking over the south, no? :iconspainapprovedplz:

You're misleading too much lately, If I hadn't already close the card envelope I'd draw one of those British little monster who mislead people in the woods, make them lost and then eat them! :P ANd you'll draw two of them? :iconsoaparthurplz:
Haha! XD

"Prego" :iconenglandgiggleplz:
You could tell me about you problems in finding stuff for references, I would have given a hand sooner! X'D Hahahahahahahha, but not a FRENCH maid tough! XDDDD They already stole our art and now they want to steal our southern italy's virility?!
No way! XDDD

Still don't know what, I've got a couple of ideas! :iconsoaparthurplz: ). I'm going to send tomorrow the ones for you and the frenchie. :3 Have still to finish the one for my russian friend and I have to buy another 2 of them.

Oh! I love Fem!Romano, she looks so cool!!! I would totally be friends with her. Oh, Veneziano doesn't look like a mannequin... he's too nervous looking for that. HAHA Run Veneziano, run from your angry big sister! XD

oh I notice one mistake... Their hair curls are switched. Veneziano's is on the left side of his head which would on the right in the picture, Romano's is on the right side of his head so it wouls also be on the opposite side too.

Hahaha that was totally me back in the high school, same sweetness and all that jazz, but we're already friends- well, more doppelgangers that friends! :iconenglandgiggleplz: Hahahha to think that at the end Veneziano wins the civil war makes me so angry, he totally lacks temper and fisique du role to win even a Bingo match! XD AFter this picure was taken he ran for his very life, leaving the flag behind. Sure of it! XD


Eeeeeee dannazione! :iconamericaflipplz:
XDD I did knew it! I didn't check 'cause I was lazy yesterday and I hoped that I would drawn the curl in the right side (I had 50% of possibilities to draw it right) I messed, of course ('cause i'm left handed, so Romano HAD to have the curl on the left side of her head, haha!)! XD Never been a lucky person, haha! Thank you very much, I'll correct the mistake! XD

I was like that in high school too (of course) and I only had a few female friends in high school because American teenage girls are complete bitches (they act like they're you friends when your with them than talk bad about you behind your back). That's why I mostly hung out with guys... they have no problem telling someone they hate them. the few female friends I had were like fem!Romano... total bad-asses.

Haha, we my friend have the same luck... to anyone else 50% odds are great, but I still end up losing XD.

Hahahahha I was a borderline punk instead, a real criminal, I didn't have friends and I fought with both guys and girls and one time I threw a desk against a teacher (I missed her on purpose, don't worry)! But she totally deserved it in my defense. u.u It was a funny period! XD
Now I'm quite the opposite, it's scary in a way!

But of course I totally agree with you in general. Men are a lot more.... mhm.... Well, maybe american men are more like that, all the italian men I've met were just like Veneziano to the core even if they pretended to be all mighty and cool. XD Embaaaaaaarassing.

Maybe I was unlucky! XD
Well, probably I am unlucky I'd say!
Let's beat some lucky person to have a bit of his/her luck! _

I was a loner in high school, I didn't really talk or hang out with anyone so people thought that I was unapproachable and stuck-up. my two friends (both guys btw) told me I should be nicer to people so they could "get to know me better"... apparently they though I was a real life tsundere...guess I kinda am. I didn't really care what people said about me... still don't to be honest.

I had all the luck in the world when I was younger. Now I have the worst luck ever, I don't know, maybe I broke a mirror or something. But I'm game if you think beating someone up will get us their luck.

Being nicer is a waste of time, tell your friends! XD I've been nice for.... Mhm, 5 years more or less when I was a child and people only put metaforical huge dicks in my arse (so THAT'S why I love yaoi, now it's clear!!!) ! XD At least being a punk was funny and I could hurt people!
:iconenglandgiggleplz:
You look very very kind to me now!
It's the old age, it tends to pacify people! :P

So at the end you need to be tsundere to be lucky! When you were unapproachable you were lucky and vice versa! XD Beating someone ALWAYS brings happiness and luck IMHO... Except if you're a buddhist, that is. u.u
