not real colors

It's funny how nonblack "pure" Amazigh ppl always say how Arabized folk should recognize that they're not Arab and that they're originally indigenous but then in the same breath say that black Maghrebis aren't native or indigenous to the Maghreb and that black Amazigh don't exist/only adopted Amazigh culture. They'll go lengths for non-black Arabized to say they're not Arab but black Maghrebis can't say they're native to the Maghreb? I saw this on Twitter today but the convo ended days ago 😤😡

yeah its ugly how black maghrebis/black north africans are erased bc of racism twitter is a cesspool of dumbass views as to what skin color ‘real’ indigenous north africans are smfh i don’t even fuck w/ that part of twitter they give me headaches. i feel like none of them remembers than sahrawiyeen exist lol. black imazighen = real imazighen period

My second SU collab with Kiwi Byrd/@cat-pun!  They did the gorgeous flowing lineart and obviously I did…all this color stuff!  I’m pretty happy with how it turned out except that I think the red lighting kinda washed out Lapis’ blue skin? ;v; BUT I STILL LIKE IT.

Surely you already know of Kiwi but if you don’t, damn dude!! Go check out their speedpaints and art in general, it is all TOP-NOTCH!

Also btw here’s my speedpaint of this angsty ocean gem:
