skin colors??
Posted 9/22/08
i think there should be diffrent skin tones to choose from when creating an avatar...its always light skin... it just feels...racist or something. like in walt disney there aren't any african american princes and esses i have seen.... dont y'all think?

There is another thread that has been dead for at least a couple weeks here on the subject:

http://www.crunchyroll.com/forumtopic-263368/Avatar-skin-colors.html

The problem I see with different skin colors at the moment is that they'd have to make templates for every single variant and configure those to accept the equips for that class which might take more effort than it appears to be. To a point I would also argue is that this is still a beta so they might want to limit stuff like in order to see everything still working.

Also, as far as I'm seeing the artists are creating more non-traditional avatar classes so there is more variety than just different skin colors of two or more templates.

BTW, this might be best suited for one of the two existing suggestion threads:

While I think it might be nice to have different skins I do have to say something about the whole Disney race thing.. XD In 2009 they will have their first African American Princess... XD The setting is New Orleans and it's the 1920's but it's based around the Frog Prince Story (it's called The Princess and the frog) you can find it on Disney Tube. :3

Maybe just different recolors for the main male/female set? I mean, it's not like vamp-set needs it (they're blue! ) Maybe a dark skinned chibi as well, the fairy... well it's a mythological creature, not part of the human race.

and then they could combine the grouping of Avatar Boy and Avatar Boy black for the clothing and stuff

i think it would be easier to just add a layer in the items section for skin designs then we can have the whole rainbow! without 50000 bases

lol so diffrent skin = weird? actually if it looked creepy then it might just be the way it was colored sometimes when i color skin it looks funny but if i do it right it looks pretty cool so its best not to assume something will look creepy based off of another sites style.
