Okay, let’s start. At first, I’m really sorry for the shitty pic - I haven’t my tablet here, so I can’t draw as usual. I often check the tag of Seychelles and see that on most of the arts she is WHITEWASHED - her skin is extremely pale. The same is with Egypt, Spain, Romano and other southern countries. But they are not white, not pale. Spain, Romano, etc. are really tan, and Seychelles with Egypt are dark-skinned. This is because of their climate and population races. You can say that Hima and Deen had drawn them white. But it was their huge mistake. And just look at the last Hima’s arts and the 5th season of anime! The characters have so many different skintones there, because they are different countries, all over the world! Isn’t it beautiful?

..Well, I’m not good at explains, huh. You can read more about whitewashing here: http://fucknowhitewashedseychelles.tumblr.com/ 

Big thanks if you’ve read this post!

(I’ll also post it on pixiv - YES. ON PIXIV. and deviantart. I really hope some of the artists will think about this problem.)
