hi idk how well you know me but i just wanted to pop by and say that your OCs are gorgeous and thank freaking yes for your decision to create awesome African OCs. They're so overlooked, but I really do want to know more about each of your OCs. :D

Thank you so much! :iconasdfghplz:
I just felt like many people in the fandom don't hear much about different African history or about African countries in general (as in a good way) so, I believe that might be the reason why many people don't attempt to do African countries as much.

 So just I wanted to show people that African countries are rich in culture and do have history that reaches back to ancient civilisations. 

I'll try to do more history for them. :iconlazycryplz: ( I know I'm kinda slacking ;_; )

BTW YOUR ART IS GORGEOUS!!!
AHHH SO PRETTY :iconsparklesplz:

I think it's such a shame that most of Africa is neglected. I'm hoping to make an African OC someday too, though I manage heaps already-- But I think it's both that and the fact that heaps of the fandom tend to whitewash the characters in the first place. I mean, even with just PH OCs which ought to have a tan, I've seen people say that they colour their PH OC lightly because they don't like colouring darker skintones?? And that was just stupidity imo - don't make an OC of a place with colour if you don't lke the colour??? And on that note, those types need to fix that sort of attitude. It's crazy how many people think like that though. 8I

I think the African countries are gorgeous, diverse and totally fascinating. I know there's several ups and downs across the continent, but I'd love to research the continent more in depth. It's nice to see awesome African OCs like yours to kind of encourage that desire to learn. Well, for me anyway, I love learning about the world.

And aww thank you so much! ;A; For your lovely compliments and for the watch back, ahaha-- :D

I definitely agree with you on the whitewashing problem it really makes my blood boil because the makers of them seem to be really ignorant about it and in addition it's just really offensive. They always tend to justify it with something like " I can't colour in darker skin tones."  or they would just justify it,  by very, VERY lightly colouring their oc in a small brown / cream colour... 
 
when the country majoritly has a darker skin shade.....

???????????

:icondoushioplz: But it's really nice to know that you're interested in African countries! ahh, you've made me very, very happy ,thank you so much. Have a lovely day~~
