No Church In The Wild by dCTb No Church In The Wild by dCTb
Title is just the song I had on repeat while drawing this. It's a lot cooler than "White on Black" or "Browns and Blues" hehe


All work done in GIMP

My first comment on DA omagawd.
I'm just so IN LOVE.
Like. REALLY in love. I'm roleplaying on forum since 5 years, maybe, and I've seen a black character maybe once. I always wanted to play some african chara' and I've never find an illustration as perfect as this one. Really. ( I've just never found any illustration at all, not even a male XD Maybe I'm just a dick as searching, but whatever)
If you don't mind I will use it for my character ! All credits for you of course, I always quote the artist when I'm using an OC.
And that would be soooooo cool if you draw more black people *-* Just. Please *-*

To end this comment I will just thank you, because, that's the way it is. Thank you.

( and sorry for my awful english ;A; )

Let me first say,
I don't make comments; I've probably only done 5 or 6 since I joined the site, but I am officially obsessed with your work, and I wish they were all comic I could hold in my hand and cherish again and again, I sit and look at their faces and at first it looks as if your looking a picture of a real person, simply breathtaking.

As everyone else, I'm in love with Hanna!!!!
But then I came across this and got very emotional. There are no real beautiful work of a black/ African American female without a stereotype drawn into her. And unless its fan art, there really isn't any original dark women drawn.

She's not in overly dressed dressed ethnic/ African Tribal clothes, not wearing "club clothes" and a "stank" face with a lip pout. And I appreciate everything about her. I'm African American and I don't walk around like the way most women of color do, I work and shop at the same stores that whites/ Caucasians do. I'm not a stereotype, and its been killing me that none of these great talented artist on this site has drawn a picture of a dark female with out it being...overdone?

I just want to say thank you, and I hope that you can make more of characters like her, and other ethnics too, and dress them in the clothes like everyone else.

I really hope you understand what I'm trying to say lol, and just so much thanks!

I think you may have misconstrued my comment.

I don't categorize people into "teams" so to speak but there is nothing wrong with what OP said. T

he woman in the artwork is of a darker skin tone and she looks beautiful, I believe OP was trying to cheer on those who might feel inferior bc of their skin color.

Mind you I'm not trying to start something. I just thought I'd clarify.

I like how you took African anatomy under consideration (if that was on purpose). Her limbs are thin and long to disperse heat efficiently.
