Let’s be perfectly clear because I’ve been getting hit by this "white wash" agenda in my inbox that I DO NOT WANT TO BE APART OF.
I have no issues drawing/illustrating/sketching colored people.
Especially claiming that I have issues with colored minorities.
It just happens that my favorite character is Liliana Vess/Veil and I would’ve never noticed her (let alone continue playing MTG) if Steve Argyle didn’t do his rendition of the character.
The image above is not a "cop out", but of Bruna I did for a friend a few months ago. This was never shared on Tumblr since I have other social networks with separate friends on those as well.
This does not include illustrated works I do professionally with a separate alias/pen name that I use, which includes clients from Bollywood, Playboy, Bose, Starbucks, Samsung, etc. I have a day-job like everyone else, but I maintain a professional separation of work from “Polish Tamales”.
Once again, I am not “white washing”, I am just simply creating things I love on my own spare time. Hard to believe, I know. If I don’t taylor my illustrations based on your personal preference, c’est la vie.
If other people like it, great. If they don’t, then they should unfollow, because quite frankly, it’s my personal blog. I even post my own cooking recipes here… Seriously I lost 13 followers after my last post on Chicken.
i love polishtamales’ art but it bothers me that they don’t draw anyone who isn’t really, really white
They also left the fandom sooo
Who said I left?
Also, why ask other people about me when I’m here silly!
