Edit 2: The original artist of the whitewashed picture submitted a corrected version here: [link]

This is how you react to being called out on whitewashing! No excuses, just a correction! That's how to be a good person. :) Very commendable!!!


This was inspired by my desire to fix this whitewashed picture: [link]

Seriously folks, if you're drawing people of color, don't lighten our skin/draw our features white. Otherwise we'll take vengeance by redo-ing all of your whitewashed pictures. =P

Time: ~11 hrs
Tools: PS CS3 and Paint tool SAI

I’m quite proud of the result.

It looks great! I'm impressed. The one thing I see wrong is their facial features all look the same. You might want to try on differentiating. It'll give them more character. I think the lighting looks good, but I can't tell if Yue is spirit or human. Her hair is glowing, but her skin isn't moon pale as it would be as a spirit. You might want to think about that. Other than that, everything looks good. I love the way you found a balance in how many lines to put in the hair. I also like how you reflected the blue onto the skin. Looks great :)
