We have been accused of whitewashing Angel. This was very surprising to us, as we don’t actively try to lighten her skin tone. We do not want to do so.
We use one PSD for ALL of our pictures. We don’t use a particular colouring for Angel and a different one for the rest.
This is the picture in question:
And here are another Angel pictures for comparison:
Our colouring has a gradient. It is lighter at the top in ALL the pictures. We take the picture and we add our PSD. We don’t touch anything else, therefore, the pictures may look differently according to what their original properties were.
We don’t think this is whitewashing. We certainly DON’T WANT for this to be whitewashing. However, if many of you think like this, please let us know and we will try to come up with another colouring.
Our ask box is open for concerns such as this and we’d appreciate it if you came to us directly with your criticism, instead of just reblogging our pictures with accusations. We’ve said time and again that we want your feedback and we are in a great need of it.
