so you're not going to draw pharmercy art anymore just because a bunch of delusional people attacked you over nonexistant problems?? :(( Your art is great! and the fact that they're the ones calling your Pharah an animal when she clearly doesnt look anything like an animal shows how racist they are cus their the ones seeing similarities to animals!!
I haven’t stopped, just taking a break (from art in general cus I need to work on my final project for college). A few other artists came and told me some of the people I encountered belong to a group of aggressive pharmercy haters and have attacked multiple artists over nonexistant problems purely cus pharah, a black/middle eastern woman has been paired with mercy,a white woman, and instead of blocking or blacklisting the tags like decent people they have chosen to kick people out of the pharmercy fandom through constant harassment (this is what ive been told). And honestly people like that imo are pathetic. Its fucking tumblr, if you dont like it then dont go on it, not rocket science. And from what I’ve seen them complaining about, it’s clear they’re trying very hard to complain about anything. Get a life seriously and maybe fucking chill. Not everyone in the world is hell bent on offending you :L. Cus you’re not at the center of it.
However, with that out of the way I have spoken to some other people who had complaints but they mostly pointed out how Mercy looks very dainty compared to Pharah, which highlights pharahs features and therefore makes her imposing, not so much that pharahs design alone is the problem. I’m still not sure what the problem with drawing a person with body hair etc is, regardless of skin colour, and many people agreed with me that pharah’s design on its own was ok, different from her original, but not bad, heck I even went and contacted my mothers two friends (jamaican/african and slovakian/african) and one of their daughters (my friend) to ask them what they thought and even they said pharah looked fine but they could see why problems could arise when I placed her next to mercy, which I can totally see why it would do that. And that’s totally ok! I was growing tired of how I drew mercy anyway and agreed with these people that id be changing mercys design to be a lot less hyper femenine, so as to eradicate the juxtapositioning issue that most people have had, and they were happy about that, so I’m glad the misunderstanding has been cleared up.
That group of aggressive anti-pharmercy people have been blocked anyway, (atleast the ones I know of) since they hate my work so much but cant wrap their head around using blacklist I decided to make it a little easier for them.
