Hope this helps!
Are you fucking kidding me..? There’s literally something racist/false in every panel.. ‘Unnaturally cuts through’..? ‘Men don’t pluck’..? ‘Caucasian’..? A white liberal made this.. Guaranteed..
burn it with fire
Yeah, this would be a good reference for SOME eye shapes all around the races but dear god the racism. Why are White eyes the basic/default? Wugh!
"white liberal" ok I hate to burst someone’s bubble but (assuming the artist isn’t using an alias), Ji Hye Han is a Korean name. So you might wanna do some research before jumping to ‘guaranteed’ conclusions.
Have we forgotten that it is entirely possible for someone who is not white to hold harmful white stereotypical opinions or perceptions?

I made this tutorial and I am a Korean- Irish American. I apologize if I offended you, it was unintentional. Let me try to explain some of the things I said.
I used a White person’s eye for the basic tutorial because, unfortunately, that is what they teach in art classes. The subsequent parts of the tutorial attempt to then morph that “basic” eye into different races. I could have easily used a darker skin tone but it never occurred to me. That goes into the way I was conditioned to see white as “the default” even though I am not white. That is a problem with society today and I will keep that in mind in the future.
"unnaturally cuts through" refers to a surgically created fold in a person with a monolid. As someone who is pretty immersed in Asian culture it isn’t difficult to tell if someone has had a surgical fold or if the fold is natural. People who are born with monolids tend to have thicker eyelids which prevent the fold from forming naturally, which is why, when the fold is surgically created, it tends to "unnaturally cut through the thickest point" of the eyelid.
"men don’t pluck" is not limited to the Asian culture. Men are generally not expected to pluck their eyebrows, whereas, women are (or do more often). Which is why men tend to have thicker or less sculpted eyebrows. I should have written "some men" because I am sure there are some who do, I generalized the gender and I shouldn’t have. But I was not being specific to Asia.
"Caucasian" is a general term for "the general physical type of some or all of the populations of Europe, North Africa, the Horn of Africa, Western Asia, Central Asia, and South Asia". So I was wrong to use this term, I thought it was a general term for White people. I’m sorry.
This tutorial is a generalization of some of the different eye types that exist in the world. It is not perfect or complete, it is a simple compilation of my observations, which I made to try to help artists draw people of different races more accurately. These are not rules or laws because they are not always true.
"a white liberal made this… guaranteed…" Don’t assume you know someones background or culture. I am a Korean- Irish American. And I apologize If I offended you, I promise it was unintentional. I hope my explanation helped clear things up for you.
