lol not intentionalOh, okay.
But, Bella sho got a deep tan.
That's actually what I was going for, I wanted the Kyooms to look very similar to each other, because they are all sisters in the end. Of course that's a little into the story (which doesn't exist in print as yet - books are expensive so I am only doing art prints for now) but I do have at least a small very simple overview of them on the website that is currently under construction at the moment.I just don't see any distinction amongst the three....all shades of brown, lighter to darker....same eyes, same noses, etc...just different racial assignments. ....The only thing that distinguishes "Melody" is "kinky hair" while the latin child's hair is black and straight and the white child's hair is blonde and straight.
Note I do need to edit Melody's description a little here
Hm, well it's hard for me to say, it deopends on the type of parent of course. I feel like you may be asking if a "concious" parent would, as opposed to just most black parents.At first glance, would most Black parents buy these books for their little girls?
Or would most Black parents have to take a deeper look to see the "story-line" and then buy them?
I'm just sayn.
I think black parents may in general, even I owned a Barbie growing up who was not black, so I don't see why a parent would not want to buy a character who is not only black, but represents something positive, is adorable and a main influence among her peers of different backgrounds.
One of the things I wanted to do when creating a positive main black character was to have her excel among peers that weren't necessarily of her own background, to me, nothing sends a stronger message of confidence to a black child than showing a black child can be successful even when they venture out of the comfort zone of people who are most similar to them.
