First of all I really want to say thank you to everyone who participated in Voting for the best hairstyle for my main character. I appreciate everyone that participated and gave me their general opinions and ideas! I really appreciated all of the encouraging words and support! ❤️❤️❤️❤️So the hairstyle with the most votes was number four, so we’ll use that! The second largest number I will use that hairstyle as a hairstyle for her as a child as some of you suggested! Thank you so much!! 😊😊😊😊😊 AAs the characters age, so will the styles so I may hold another vote sooner or later 😉
Also, let me address some concerns with persons who think I am “ perpetuating or conforming to European standards” because of the blond hair.
My character is Melanesian. If you research, a lot of Melanesian persons of the Solomon Islands have blond hair and dark skin. I wanted to do something a little different, but best believe the ultimate goal is to get a black character out here that is a household name! That little black girls can look up to as an action hero, etc.
I’m a little behind because I am developing characters, storylines, plots, personalities, Villians, timelines, etc. I don’t want to rush this for it to be placed on a back burner! If Marvel, DC, Dbz can last and continue for over so many years and still be popular, hell, why not make that my goal as well? #love #crushandchill1 #melanin #melanesian #blackblondes #blondehaironblackwomen #naturalhair #art #artist #drawingwhileblack #draw #design #characterdesign #originalartwork #procreate #ipadproart #ipadpro #hair #hairstyles #voting #blackexcellence
