You know what’s funny?
I was about to make a post about how when bismuth is introduced in same old world she had a darker color pallet to make her seem more mysterious to refute the whitewashing thing, but I found something hundreds of times less conceptual in nature straight from The Answer itself.
So, when looking for a screenshot of the answer to use in this post I found
This little beauty. And you might be confused how this would help out my case but what’s that? The hand is lighter? And it’s in the light? Why it’s almost like lighting does something to colors. Let’s just check it with current colors to be sure though
Huh, well I guess my argument falls fl- HOLD UP THERE BUCKAROO, have I got news for you. We are now going to likewise compare the day pallet of sapphire, a conveniently blue character, with her colors in the answer.
based on this we can conclude that the darkness was due to either lighting once again or a style choice made during the episode. That will conclude my rebuttal and cruddy image comparing for the day. The pallet truly changed about as much as you guys claim lapis’ did.
