like? honestly this is one of the worst parts of rpc ‘’’aesthetics’’’ to me. everything is so pastel and high contrast that if you play a poc and don’t make your own icons and psds then you’re sol in terms of your character retaining their natural skin tone. this is stuff that only looks ‘good’, for a given value of ‘good’, on white or white-passing FCs. The current trends in icons and colorings makes it that much harder to find usable resources for non-white FCs, who are usually fairly underused as it is.
I shouldn’t have only two icon packs that remember my character is a brown woman when there’s roughly 8 icon packs in her rp tag. Even when the resources are available, you have to either accept playing the character as whitewashed through icons or just.. not have icon resources at all. It’s ridiculous.
