So in working on my VRChat avatar I decided that there should be a shadow-creature hole-in-space variant. However, I'm worried that this might read as being blackface, in which case I obviously don't want to use this color scheme. Could folks weigh in on this?
And if this is as problematic as I worry about, in order to make it NOT look like blackface, but still have the lips be readable, what would be a better alternative?
@fluffy it doesnt read like black face to me. the binary color palette helps steer it away from that connotation and the lips arent big enough to stand out in the way they do in black face art.
