OC - Ma. Claire by matsunoki OC - Ma. Claire by matsunoki
Maria Claire is obviously inspired by the earlier clothing of Filipina women but with a twist coz i made her for the present. Her name is also a phun of the popular conservative Filipina icon, Maria Clara. Also, her supposed to be surname was Silang (derived from Gabriela Silang, a filipina national hero). Her weapons are the itak (common tool in the rural areas round here) and a spear which design was inspired by the Philippine flag of today.

I entered this in a contest (and used my original name... :jawdrop: )... but i didn't win... no remorse on that one though coz i didn't lose a body part anyway. XD She also has a backstory with her.. but i think this description is already long so that would be for some future art or something. Lastly, a revision of this is somewhere in the corner... i am doing that now together with other projects.

N'joy.

Ma. Claire ME.
Art ME.
Please don't steal any part of this for own personal purposes.
