a librarian’s hoard
[ID: Digital illustration of a red dragon surrounded by their colorful hoard of books. A worn, blue scarf wraps around their neck, and a pair of gold glasses sits on their snout, held in place by a gold chain. The dragon’s lair resembles a huge, airy library with multiple levels of bookcases, tall mountains of books, and floor-to-ceiling windows revealing open sky. Decorative gold chains drape across the space. The dragon smiles as it holds a small book in its mouth, stretching to offer it to a distant human standing atop a book tower. End ID.]

Making this guide because I see this question time and time again on here. This post is mostly directed at white artists and writers who are wondering how to best design their characters of color. Full text description is at the end under the cut.

Full disclaimer, I am biracial (mixed E/SE asian and white) and grew up in majority poc communities, but I am just one person and this post is only based on my own experiences. If any other poc want to chime in, feel free to do so.
Once again, a full plaintext description is under the cut. If you find the information useful, please pass it on by reblogging <3
(Finally, even though I spoke vaguely on genetic inheritance, this is NOT the place to comment on certain features being mutations, as if being a mutation means something is inherently lesser or isn’t supposed to exist. Mutations is everything! All of our traits were at some point or another, an emerging mutation. Love yourself ^__^)
Text Description: A Brief Guide on Designing Biracial Characters: “Are my character’s green eyes REALISTIC?”
Disclaimer: I am a geneticist but this is by no means my topic of expertise. The information here is based on EXPERIENCE, and common knowledge of genetic inheritance.
A LOT of people will ask “If my character is mixed white and X, is it OK/realistic for me to give them green/blue/grey eyes?”
SHORT ANSWER: Biracial people with super light eyes exist, but this is uncommon and often plays into trends of whitewashing.
[Two diagrams. One is of light eye colors being combined with dark eye colors, and the other is light hair colors being combined with dark hair colors. Both of them display a range of potential hair and eye colors from these combinations. The brown, dark brown, and black colors are noted as “Most Common”, while green, blue, grey eyes and blonde, red hair fall outside this range. end image]
When someone has one parent with darker features and another parent with light features, their features will normally be a mix of the two or the darker color will be dominant.
Having green or blue eyes if one of your parents has very dark eyes is really rare.
Green and blue eyes are characterised by a LACK of melanin, which means that if that person inherited even one melanin-producing eye color gene from their parent, they will have eyes that are at LEAST hazel or light brown.
[Drawing of four people. A person with dark skin, black hair, and black eyes and a person with pale skin, brown hair, and brown eyes are marked as “Pretty common”. A person with tan skin, dark brown hair, and blue eyes and a person with dark skin, black hair, and hazel eyes are marked as “Very rare”. end image]
A good rule of thumb for making ANY characters of color is make their eyes around the same shade as their hair. Also, hair tends to be several shades darker than skin, and eyes will almost never be lighter than their skin.
Biracial characters can range from looking a lot like only one of their parents to looking like a perfect mix of them, but if one of the parents has extremely light features like blue eyes or blond hair, it’s unlikely your character will have identical traits.
As always, EXCEPTIONS EXIST, but if you are white and choose to make your character one of these rare exceptions, you should examine WHY you find light eyes more desirable.
It is extremely common for media to give characters of color light, unnatural eye colors, and then justify it by saying “it’s possible” or having an in-universe explanation (eye colors in ATLA, Yennefer in the Witcher series, etc).
This plays into tropes of whitewashing (touched on earlier in this post) and inadvertently teaches children of color that their dark eyes are somehow less desirable. As mentioned, the VAST MAJORITY of half-white biracial children have brown to black eyes, so I would really recommend that you give your own characters dark eyes, because they’re lovely too!
Some Miscellaneous Notes:
If a character is E/SE asian and white, their hair texture might be thick like their asian parent’s (even if light colored!), or have a thinner texture like their white parent (even if dark colored!).
If a character is mixed black and another race, their hair texture is going to very likely have the same or a similar texture as their black parent’s.

This is so funny?
(ID: A screenshot of an interview from The Mary Sue about The Adventure Zone graphic novel. It reads "Travis McElroy stated that this is the first time he enjoyed playing Magnus because “the reason the whole ‘Magnus rushes into things’ started was because I didn’t want to play a fighter. I wanted to be a rogue, so I kind of wanted to die in battle to re-roll a character.” But as this story progressed, he began to think of him as a part of this team, and that made Travis start to consider the impact of his actions on the other characters." END ID.)

[Image ID: A three panel monochrome comic featuring Lup, Magnus, and Angus from The Adventure Zone: Balance podcast. Lup is in lich form, and appears as a skeleton with a shadowy outline of a body and long hair overlaid. She wears a short dress tied with a rope at the waist, and a hooded cloak, both of which are frayed along the edges. Angus is a dark-skinned boy in a dress shirt and slacks, with a curly hightop haircut and round glasses. He is sitting on Magnus’ shoulders. Magnus is a burly man with medium-tone skin and slightly darker hair. He has a full beard with longer sideburns, and sports two cuts on his face, one over his right eye and the other on his left cheek. He wears one shoulder guard over a white tunic, and an elaborate belt. Stephen the fish is tied in a sphere at his hip.
In the first panel, Lup and Angus are staring at each other, both looking surprised. Magnus is smiling and holding onto Angus’ feet, and Lup is leaning a hand on Magnus’ arm for balance. She is incredulously asking, “Holy SHIT, did you get us a NEPHEW?!”
In the second panel, Angus is earnestly sticking a hand out to shake, and saying, “Nice to officially meet you, ma’am! I’m Angus McDonald, the World’s Greatest Detective!” Lup seems startled; Magnus is leaning forward to with an amused smile, watching the interaction.
In the third panel, Lup has scrunched up into a floating fetal position, and is pressing her face into her hands, looking distressed. Her clothes and hair are bristling around her like tongues of flame. She shouts, “Magnus he’s a huge fucking DORK holy shit I LOVE HIM ALREADY!” Angus seems startled, and has ducked against Magnus’ head with a surprised, “Oh!” Magnus has tilted his head back in laughter, exclaiming, “HA!”]

they only wear the official shirts on laundry day
[Image ID: A twelve panel tricolour comic featuring Taako, Lup, and Lucretia from The Adventure Zone: Balance podcast. Lucretia is a young woman with dark skin and medium-length curly black hair. Lup is an elf with medium-tone skin and long, pale hair. Taako is an elf with medium-tone skin and pale, fluffy hair cut just below his ears. All three characters wear red tee shirts with a round patch on the left breast that reads ‘IPRE’. Lup has the sleeves of her shirt rolled up.
In the first two panels, Lucretia is pouring herself a cup of tea while Lup stares at her back, chin in her hand, looking perturbed. Math equations are floating around Lup’s head. Lucretia turns around with a concerned expression to ask, “Are you staring at me for a reason, or...?” and Lup seems flustered -- she slams a hand on the table and points at Lucretia, shouting, “I wanna know the secret to your perfect curls, Luce!” She is blushing, and nervous sweatdrops are flying off her head.
In the third panel, Lucretia is hugging her mug of tea to her chest, and looking surprised and flustered. She is blushing. She says, “Oh, uhh, I can show you what I do?” Lup is not visible in the panel, but her speech bubble says, “Hell yeah!”
In the fourth through sixth panels, Lucretia and Lup are wrapped in towels, and look as though they have just bathed. Lup is wringing the water out of her hair while Lucretia looks over a bottle in her hands. Lucretia says, “You wash curly hair with oil so you don’t dry it out.” Lup says, “No shit?” and Lucretia continues, “I mixed herbs into this one, so--” In the next panel, Lucretia has noticed that Lup is wringing her hair, and slaps her hands with an abrupt, “Don’t do that!” Lup looks startled. In the final panel, Lup is bent over laughing and exclaims, “omg LUCY,” and Lucretia looks incredibly embarrassed. She clutches the oil bottle to her chest and waves her free hand wildly, saying, “I’m sorry! It’s-- you aren’t supposed to-- it’s gotta be-- if it’s not, you can-- uhh--”
In the seventh panel, both women are sitting on a mattress, and Lucretia is combing through Lup’s hair with her fingers. Lup’s eyes are closed, and she’s swinging one leg delightedly. Lucretia explains, “Using your fingers to comb lets you feel for knots and keeps your curls intact,” and Lup says, “Sure~”
In the eighth panel, Lucretia is standing by a sink with her hair pulled up with a handkerchief. Lup is struggling to do the same, and is sticking her tongue out. Lucretia explains, “And you, um, sleep with the pineapple in so the curls can stay protected. Do you need help?” Lup says, “Ya girl’s just... got a lot of-- hair--” In the ninth panel, both women are leaning forward and scrunching their hands through their hair. Barry, a white man with dark hair and glasses, also wearing a red shirt, is leaning into the doorway, looking confused. A question mark hovers over his head. Lucretia explains, “And then you scrunch the shit out of it.” Lup goes, “Pfft, so like Koko having a meltdown. ‘Someone used all my SAFFRON! How dare you, this is the most tragic thing that’s ever happened to me!’” Lucretia laughs, “omg LUP”
In the tenth panel, Lucretia is apprehensively watching as Lup examines the results of their work. Both women are blushing. Lup is fluffing her now-curly long, pale hair with one hand, and looking startled and thrilled. Gold stars are sparkling around her head. Lucretia asks, “What do you think?” and Lup exclaims, “Lucretia, oh my GODS!”
In the eleventh panel, Lup is slamming her hand against a wall, and has her opposite hand on her hip, posing dramatically. The gold stars are still sparkling around her. “Guess who’s the hotter twin, BITCH,” she says to her twin. Taako points at her accusingly, his expression affronted and a large “GASP!!!” written over his head. 
In the twelfth and final panel, Lucretia is sipping at a mug of tea with a knowing expression, and Taako is beside her, one of his hands on the counter behind them and the other raised with his pointer finger extended. He squints back the way he came, looking irate. Lucretia says, “I’ve been sworn to secrecy, y’know,” and he argues, “Listen, Creesh. This goes against the cosmic order of things. I HAVE to know. I won’t beg, but I WILL barter.” Lucretia suggests, “Four batches of elderflower macaroons?” and Taako says, “Done.”]

[Image ID: A digitally-drawn comic of Bow, Catra, Adora, and Glimmer from She-Ra and The Princesses of Power.
In the first image, Bow is standing at the head of a round table, gesturing to a poster. The poster is labelled “CATRA” with a piece of paper taped below the word. He is saying, “There’s only one thing in all of Etheria that’s cuter than Catra.”
In the second panel, Bow has whipped the paper off the poster to reveal the word, “PURRING”. His expression is intense, and he is shouting, “BOOM!”
The third panel shows a closeup of the poster, and the contents that together read “CATRA PURRING”.
The final panel depicts a round table with several chairs, with two books on top. Adora is standing at the end of the table, and pointing excitedly towards Bow (who is offscreen). She is yelling, “YES!” In the background, Catra is bristling and blushing furiously, and pointing at Adora, screaming, “NO!!!” In the foreground, Glimmer is laying with her head on the table, exasperatedly saying, “This isn’t even how the joke GOES.”]

“Why do we need Disability Pride?”
A comic I made for Disability Pride. Under the keep reading is an in-depth image description of the comic. 
[description one: a seven-panel comic titled ‘Why do we need Disability Pride?’ where two ignorant able-bodied people have their misconceptions about disability challenged. at the end of the comic, they are involved in the community.
[description two: A text at the beginning of the comic reads, “Why do we need Disability Pride?” Beneath that is a balanced scale with two people sitting on either side. On one side is Ekam, a Sikh man wearing a turban, button-up, and khakis. Above it reads, “Ekam is uncomfortable around disabled people.” On the other side of the scale is Bailey, a fat white woman wearing a long-sleeved shirt, tights, and a carrier purse which are all purple. Above her it reads, “Bailey thinks every disabled person is an inspiration.” To either side of them are panels providing examples of how their ableism manifests. 
To the left of Ekam is a panel of him speaking to a coworker, Alazaye, a fat Black woman with half-up hair buns in a wheelchair wearing a tank top and jean shorts. Ekam looks unsettled, but polite. In a speech bubble above him he says, “So.. uh,... hey..” Imposed over-top of his dialogue is Alazaye’s thought bubble that reads, “he’s only awkward around me..” while looking away, frustrated. 
To the right of Bailey is a panel of her speaking to a stranger, Caden, a white man with facial and limb differences due to burns using arm crutches. He is wearing a t-shirt and long-sleeved shirt with jeans. Bailey is touching his shoulder comfortingly while saying, “it’s so BRAVE of you to be OUTSIDE!” Caden is looking at her directly while scowling, but not speaking.
In the next panel is a landscape of a Disability Pride parade. Two people in mobility scooters are leading the parade while carrying a banner of zigzag Disability Pride Flag. On the left side of the banner is a fat East Asian woman wearing a blouse with her hair up. On the right is a dark-skinned Black woman with locs, self-harm scars, and Plexiform neurofibromas on her face wearing a bucket hat and t-shirt. Around them are other disabled people and allies carrying signs or celebrating in the street. Above the panel it reads, “Disability Prides in America have been held since 1990 when the ADA was signed.” Below it reads, “The work of disabled activists during the month encourages others to break down bias they may have towards those with disabilities.” 
In the next panel Ekam approaches a group of people within the parade, smiling and waving nervously. In the foreground of the illustration is Ruben, a South Asian enby waving to Ekam with one of their prosthetic arms. Caden from before is standing beside Ekam wearing a sunhat to protect his eyes. Below the panel it reads, “Be brave and reach out.” 
In the next panel Bailey listens to a white redheaded woman wearing goth clothes in a wheelchair speak while Ernie, a chubby Black man with a high-top fade wearing an autistic infinity t-shirt and jeans, is prompting Bailey to listen to the other. Above the panel it reads, “Really listen to what we have to say.”
In the final panel, Ekam and Bailey are engaging with and listening to their disabled friends at the parade. Ekam is telling a joke to Ruben in the left corner of the panel, Caden is listening to Ernie infodump about his special interest in the middle, and to the right Alazaye is joined hands with Bailey while looking at each other romantically. Above the group it reads, “You’ll begin to see what we’ve been trying to show you.” Below the group it reads, “WE ARE DISABLED!” Then outside the panel it reads in italics, “NOT DISPOSABLE.”
Thank you for reading. Happy Disability Pride!

Bisexu-idiocy
[Image ID: Six full-colour digital drawings making up a comic of Aubrey, Duck, and Minerva from The Adventure Zone: Amnesty podcast. Aubrey is a thin human woman with brown skin and a red curly undercut, wearing a blue vest, purple pants, and a black shirt. Duck is a stocky, pale-skinned human man with fluffy brown hair and a patchy chinstrap beard, wearing a green tee shirt, tan pants, and white and pink socks. Minerva is a large, muscular, dark-skinned woman with pointed ears and swirling blue tattoos along her bald head and limbs. She is wearing a light green tank top and purple shorts. 
In the first panel, Duck is laying with his head in Minerva’s lap on an orange couch, and she’s combing through his hair with one hand. Aubrey is skidding into the scene on her knees shouting, “Duck!” He answers with a nonchalant, “Yeah, Aubrey,” and she says, “I need you to help me win an argument! What’s more attractive: beefy arms, or thighs you could crush a watermelon with?”
The second panel features a closeup of Duck’s face as he says, “Uhh... I think you’d have to be kinda stupid to walk away from a strong thigh game, but... mmm... but I wouldn’t turn away from somebody with a wicked set of traps, neither. You seen those guys with shoulder muscles like cut stone?”
In the third panel, Aubrey is squinting at Duck with an incredibly exasperated expression, and slowly says, “...that’s the most bisexual thing I’ve EVER heard come out of your mouth.”
In the fourth panel, Duck is looking up at the ceiling with wide eyes, as if he’s just realized something, and says, “...huh.” Aubrey has thrown her hands out in front of her as if she can’t believe what she’s seeing, and shouts, “DUCK!!!”
In the fifth panel, Minerva is asking, “What is this term? ‘Bisexuality’?” and Duck is looking up at her with a fond smile on his face. Aubrey has calmed down somewhat to explain, “Oh, sorry. It means you experience sexual attraction to people with the same and different genders as you.”
In the sixth panel, Minerva has tilted her head and is wearing a disbelieving expression, with one eyebrow raised. She says, “Is this an ABNORMALITY to humans, Aubrey Little?” and Aubrey had thrown her hands out again, and is shouting, “MINERVA!!!” Duck’s face is scrunched up in laughter, and there’s a little “snrk” written by his head.]
