Kudos on the recent comic/tutorial. You put it so that everybody can understand it and in an entertaining way that doesn't offend or ridicule. Brilliant job! :D
thank you so very much!!!
I was bashed because one of my black character didn't have a "black guy personality" and that he was "acting white"
ARE YOU SERIOUS WHAT THE FUCK!!
My team was once asked if a female character could be ironic..
Your post on how to design good characters of different genders, sexualities, ethnicities, etc, is good, but simplifying it too much is problematic. Someone who is a transgender latino man is going to have extremely different experiences, struggles, and personal victories than would someone a cisgender white man, and it's important to take those into account when making a character like that. It's important to avoid stereotyping, but authenticity doesn't completely ignore identity.
Yes, true, but that is why I say it belongs to the backstory. And only if you decide to. But im kind of sad that in “commertial culture” cliches are so hardcore. I mainly work in my personal art with fantasy and adventures. I rarely go social. But when I work for corporations (basically for whom this post is meant to) there are so many stupid limitations that it makes me crazy. This post is not meant for people that already know this. It has some innacuracies, and its impossible to be 100% precise, I left too many other “stereotypes” out of the pages, but its supposed just to open the mind and then apply logic to everything else…
