fun times with fans

Have a super vibrant picture of Rabbit that I made with watercolor markers that I don’t remotely know how to use

[Image description: There are two drawings. The first is an unfinished drawing of Rabbit (an intricate copper automaton with long hair, defined face plates, a swirl on her chin, wires instead of a neck, and ribbed vents in the sides of her face). She is shown in profile, smiling. She wears a bandana on her head, along with a hat with a pair of brass goggles on it. She is drawn in a loose brush style. The second image is the finished version of the first one, now with vivid, sketchy colors (such as oxidized copper for Rabbit’s face plates, a bright red bandana, and a navy blue hat.]

Honestly thanks so much for making this blog all of the other restoring blogs I've found before seemed to b non-Asians who were wildly out of their depth just randomly darkening idols/making them super yellow/orange. I didn't really support restoring before bc it just looked like a bunch of white saviours randomly darkening Asians to save us from western beauty standards or some shit like that but as an Asian I was so insecure abt my own skin colour (1/2)

And seeing all those white washed idols was making everything worse I wouldn’t go out in the sun At All bc I was scared I would tan. My family also made fun of me every time I was a bit darker than normal. White fans don’t seem to understand just how shitty colorism is and that affects All Asians thank you so much for restoring bts it’s helping me love my own skin again you’re doing a great job and thank you for everything (2/2)

Hey, I don’t really blame you for viewing restoring that way before. I also never liked the idea of people who weren’t Asian telling us what Asians are “supposed” to be like. And I still don’t! And frankly, those non E/SE Asians that are restoring kpop idols are way out of line. Even IF they are correct in the color of skintone, it felt as if they viewed us as very lowly and wanted to put their opinions over us, the ones who it actually affected.

But y’know I felt that pain too. From not loving my own skin color because of both societies. Western and Eastern society. It felt like I was trapped. It was one thing for myself to feel that way… but when I slowly began to realize that other Asian kids felt that way and I learned more about whitewashing and how it affected communities of color… I couldn’t sit by. I really really really love kids. And it pained me to know that so many kids of color would grow up hating their own skin color. I wanted to help badly.

So I am really happy that whenever I get messages like these. It feels like all the researching about colors, reading textbooks, watching physics videos, learning about photography, etc, is all worthwhile. Even though I am still going through the process of it myself, I want everyone to love their own skin. 

Sorry for answering this really late! I was caught up in a lot of family matters but this ask was always sitting in the back of my mind. And I wanted to reply well so please forgive me~

TLDR: YOU SHOULD LOVE YOURSELF!

Overwatch thought: Pharah and Genji partner up to give international aid to the many forgotten Bedouin peoples.

Please click on them! Pixels look much nicer when not muddy.

okay but i love both outcomes of this either a) he’s going to sing kiwi and he thought this would be a fun and sweet way to let the fans know ahead of time or b) he’s playing a prank on us and it’s gonna become a lil inside joke and i’m just very endeared either way
