FELIZ BICENTANARIO DA INDEPENDÊNCIA!!!
Brazil day 🇧🇷
Ehehehehehe BRICS gang (+｀∀´)b
Aha thank you for using MayMay <3 <3 I loved your Arg and South Africa (yesss South Africa OC <3 )
This is one of my favorite artworks I've drawn: the BRICS group 🇧🇷🇷🇺🇮🇳🇨🇳🇿🇦 of Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa! Also featuring Iran 🇮🇷 and Argentina 🇦🇷, the two countries that submitted applications in 2022 to join BRICS.
I think this group of countries would definitely be good friends and have a lot of fun together. BRICS was originally coined to group together the five major emerging economies of the world, and the leaders of the five countries meet annually at BRICS summits. Combined, they represent over 40% of the global population and BRICS often serves a platform for multilateral collaboration and connection between countries in the Global South. Many countries other than the seven I drew have also expressed interest in joining BRICS but haven't applied yet.
The beautiful Brazil design is by @ms-dora who graciously allowed me to draw her OC, and the designs for South Africa and Argentina are by me! The design for Iran is the canon Hetalia design for Persia, except I drew Iran as female.
I did a little research and drew each country wearing clothing from their cultures: Brazil with a skirt and blouse design I borrowed from @ms-dora, Russia in a kosovorotka, India wearing a Nehru jacket, China in hanfu-inspired robes, and South Africa in a shweshewe dress and sandals with her national flower, the giant protea. Iran is wearing a dress inspired by some beautiful Persian clothing I saw online (but I didn't draw the fabric patterns) and a headscarf. Argentina is wearing bombachas de campo trousers and a woolen poncho.
Also, in case this wasn't already clear, I don't really do digital painting so these characters are ONLY lineart.

KAKAKAKAAKA me desculpem por sumir sem dar sinais-- ahaha, um monte de coisa rolou, mas estou de volta <3
What does Miss Brazil think of the lovely @ask-aph-tanzania?
I hope we can interact...!
What’s it like in Brazil
it's honestly very hard to answer this question because Brazil is such a huge country, each region is so different... there's not one universal brazilian experience
but I could try to sum it up and say that being brazilian is gathering an impossible amount of friends and family in a tiny backyard, in a 37°C heat with one ceiling fan, to make churrasco and drink beer until 5 pm. it's sitting in the sidewalk or going to a bar in a late afternoon to gossip and complain about politics. being brazilian is learning how to deal with being harassed or mugged, staying constantly aware of your surroundings on the street. we are loud when we speak and our conversations sound like heated arguments, even if we're mutually agreeing. we brazilians like to touch, kiss, hug, push, pat each other's backs, hold hands, shake our friends by the shoulders, and rub our bodies when we dance
Brazil is a very high energy country, people are always flooded with many emotions at once, both good and bad. we feel anger and frustration and resentment very deeply, but we party and sing and dance and love with just as much strength

Hi! Besides Brazil do you have more OC characters (on South America)?
Thank you ❤️
yess!! mercosul/mercosur gang ~~★ characters are free for use bc I am a bad oc mom
To those of you who aren't in the Portuguese speaking sphere, let me give you a hilarious update. Parents in Portugal are currently HORRIFIED because their children are now only speaking Brazilian Portuguese from watching so many Brazilian YouTubers. They are finding this deeply disturbing and want the Brazilian Portuguese to end IMMEDIATELY
