why is this movie so hard to color

You know when you bring up fandom racism and someone (or several people, usually) responds with some kind of version of ‘your view is invalid because you’re only considering race as a factor for why CoC is unpopular (or white side character is super popular), without comprehending other factors’? 

Not only is that incredibly patronizing, it’s also totally backwards. Because over and over again, I’ll watch movies and TV shows and see a story being told with important characters of color, and then watch as fandom ignores them to embrace white characters, no matter how minor. Over and over. 

That is what I and others notice. And to those people trying to invalidate our observations, I say: We’re not the ones disregarding the story to focus on race – you are

I mean, they’re not consciously thinking about race, which is why the whole discussion is so hard for them, but the result is always that CoC don’t matter as much as white characters. There are always a million non-racial reasons why, but in fan spaces like Tumblr and AO3, it always comes down to whiteness mattering more.

Credence Barebone

A new and hard series of fan arts. I tried to draw it in a soft color. Credence is adorable, and so does Ezra Miller. I would rather see him be around with lilies instead of dark.I always fall in love with a boy whose hair is curly and brunette. It explains why i love Sherlock,Ben Whishaw, Colin Morgan, Sebastian Stan and  Tom Hiddleston properly. It’s hard because i will finish those gradually. And print it maybe.

OK ya, a Spirited Away AU is so cliché and overrated?? BUT this movie is undeniably one of my favorite Miyazaki films of all time so I couldn’t resist doing a cross over (btw if you haven’t watched Spirited Away yet, I recommend this movie)!!

ok tbh, I wanted to redraw one or two scenes to practice on my coloring, and experiment with different brushes/techniques–but I think I  got a little carried away

So yeah!! Random Haku/Chihiro scenes with a Mika/Yuu twist :-))

Harry pulled the Invisibility Cloak from inside his robes, swung it over himself, and sprang to his feet, as Neville moved too.

In one swift, fluid motion, Neville broke free of the Body-Bind Curse upon him; the flaming hat fell off him and he drew from its depths something silver, with a glittering, rubied handle - The slash of the silver blade could not be heard over the roar of the oncoming crowd or the sounds of the clashing giants or of the stampeding centaurs, and yet, it seemed to draw every eye. With a single stroke Neville sliced off the great snake’s head, which spun high into the air, gleaming in the light flooding from the entrance hall, and Voldemort’s mouth was open in a scream of fury that nobody could hear, and the snake’s body thudded to the ground at his feet.

If you look at the concept art you can see the evolution. Also, the colors go better with the overall tone of the movie. Furthermore, black is a very consuming color/value. It sucks up everything on screen. It’s hard to do costumes with a heavy black motive in a brighter toned movie right. That’s why Enchantress sticks out so much. She’s a very dark character visually and aesthetically. Colors and tone need balance. Source: My Honors thesis professor with a Doctorate in Visual Media

I’m not defending it, I just see the technical side of it.

I see what you’re getting at and I’d be willing to buy that, but it’s still not able to justify the change. Here’s why: there are already several characters that also wear predominantly dark if not black clothing.

And as this picture shows, she already stands out more as she is now than she would with the red and black. Even if she did have red/black, she’d still stand out regardless. The only place she fits in more is on the later posters for the film and then everyone else fails to match up with the brighter aesthetic.

Not only that, but Deadshot and Katana have a straight up red/black color scheme for their outfits, so I don’t see why Harley couldn’t also have one.

So that technical explanation doesn’t really seem to be the reason. It still seems more like an arbitrary change that wasn’t necessary. Harley still could’ve kept her original color scheme.
