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.
