Drawesome Challenge 14 - Ethnic Diversity

Challenge #14: Ethnic Diversity

Create a drawing featuring someone of different ethnic background to your own.

You can even challenge yourself to portray an ethnicity that you've never attempted before. The comment section of this post may be used for discussion of the prompt (ie. ideas, suggestions, questions, etc.).

Please note that Alien-looking species (eg. Klingon) do not qualify for this particular challenge. Once your character has 100% human-looking features, they would qualify. Hope that clears things up. Please feel free to ask in the comment section if you're not sure.

A round-up post for submissions to this challenge will be done on Saturday 17th March, 2018.

Happy Drawing, everyone! :)

I know what you mean -- due to Societal Factors it's really easy to default in one's work. I've been trying to make a point of drawing other Black people, and this challenge inspires me to think of whom I haven't drawn and how to convey this information about my subjects. I'm so excited!

For me it's just weird because I'm mixed so I just. My particular mix doesn't show up that often in general media that I watch/ed (only one that's coming to mind is Skye/Daisy from SHIELD) and isn't always visually recognizable if it does. I have a couple OCs that are Chinese-European, though (specifically because I wanted to draw and write about people who were like me), so I actually have drawn my ethnicity a lot in that sense, but I think they often read as just white so it's a little... ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

But yeah I've consciously pushed to include diversity in both gender and race in my art since the norm does kind of get to you-- all the 'how to draw' tutorials tend to start from thin white people (and media is also largely that visual type) and it's difficult to break out of that unless you do it on purpose. I'm currently also working on body type diversity for that reason.

I was racking my brain and found I've drawn Kevin Tran a couple of times, and Rufus Turner from SPN once... It's not a great record though! LOL
