People are always getting my races for the kids wrong? I don’t know if it’s because I use uncommon skintones for the races I’m trying to represent, or if it’s because I’m trying to make them read as actually being ethnically ambiguous (not just, you know, caramel-dipped caucasian features), or if it’s because I’m genuinely failing at getting it to read or what.
But spoiler alert: there are more races than black and white. Spoiler alert II: I hardly ever draw white Homestucks.
For the prospit kids, I try to do a mix of South Asian and Pacific Islander, with Jade being most towards the latter and Jake being most towards the former, John and Jane being somewhere in between.
With the Derse kids, I try to do a mix of Latino and Black, with Rose being most towards the former and Dirk being most towards the latter, Dave and Roxy being somewhere in between.
I give the Derse kids a pale white skintone because albinism and the Prospit kids a mid-dark skintone because pretty, but maybe it all reads better with no color? IDK w/e
I feel kind of sad about these updates sobb I mean, thinking of them being all alone and everything… D:
