I fully understand that real whitewashing is a problem and insulting. But… when people are attacked for just shading not enough, using a wrong color palette, going for a pastel look etc… it’s too much. Everytime I look at my indian and african OCs I feel disgusted by myself now and feel like crying. I feel like never draw and shade anyone beside white again.
What is probably the opposite of what those people want. But on that blog especially I saw so much bashing of beginner artists with mistakes, it’s really really demotivating to even try and practice anymore.
Try to see what is white washing, what is experimenting with light sources, and what is simply beginner mistakes.
Oh and before putting someone on a giant bulletinboard for whitewashing and racism, maybe contact them if they really intended that.
Maybe they really just experimented with colors or wanted a pastel or aquarel look, not to make a character “white”.
Sorry for my bad english.
lol cry moar
lol!!! WE DON’T CURRR!!!
Excuses excuses! We don’t buy your bullshit about “shading” If you can’t “shade” dark skin you’re not worth shit as an artist.
Whoa! calm down, falcon. as a person who is unfortunately surrounded by artists (thus thrown into their crazy world)and understands how the color wheel, graphic programs, how different art supplies interact with each other (most fanart being a product of shitty supplies and no knowledge/schooling of whats good) and shading works, I understand their plight (and laugh becuz I’m a wonderful friend) Calling them a “shit artist” is pretty fucking harsh and unnecessary. You think it’s easy doing that shit?
Whitewashing is a serious problem and I’ve seen some valid entries and obvious whitewashing and agree with you guys tons on a lot of things but right now it feels like a KKK hunt :/
