Why don't you include Arabs, hispanic etc etc in this? ;____;
BECAUSE they are more or less mixed version of African/Asian/Caucasian. And this is such a HUGE area that I simply cannot cover in one deviation. PLEASE FOR GODS SAKE CHECK OUT THE LINKS BEFORE YOU COMMENT.

very helpful tutorial you got there. I just want to comment on something though. Not all "asians" fit the type that you described. The features that you described is true for Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Vietnamese, etc. whereas other asians like Indonesians or Malaysians have significantly different features. Sorry, I just feel the need to say this since you mentioned Indonesia and Malaysia, which led me to at first think you recognized not all asians=chinese, but yet your explanation of "asian face" soonafter led me to think otherwise >_<
Rather than calling the Chinese/japanese/korean/etc. face "asian" I think it's more accurate to call them "oriental". Now, I never lived in USA so i'm not too sure if you guys deem it as offensive or something, but as far as I know, I lived in Australia for quite a while and there "oriental" is not deemed as an offensive term, rather it's merely a description, no different than how the word Caucasian is perceived. On the other hand, summing up all of asia as chinese race and disregarding other asian ethnic groups like malay just bothers me a bit. There may be people of Chinese race/decent in Malaysia or Indonesia, but the majority are the natives who are of malay ethnicity. As for their facial features, they have relatively large eyes, usually double eyelid, and the face is quite um...curvy? (lol, basically it's quite different from the flatter shape of chinese race)

I know, you did give a disclaimer that you can't describe every race and every ethnicity in this single deviation. However, you did mention explicitly Indonesia and Malaysia as being part of Asia (which I was happy about, I was like "yay westerners acknowledge that we're not just China"). But soon after, you completely disregarded the malay race.....lol I just hope what i said was.....informative, kinda. Finally, disclaimer: if i happen to sound racist against chinese race, I'm not. Really. It just bugs me a bit when a westerner fails to acknowledge that there are other ethnicity other than Chinese in Asia.

I definitely see your point (and I definitely know how it feels when people overgeneralize things!), but you have to admit that she did a good job in not generalizing "Asia" to China in comparison to most. Also, where I come from, everyone considers "oriental" offensive and only old people and war veterans say it...
She really can't cover everyone! 

The only part that bothered me only because no one mentioned it in the pages of comments is that latinos/hispanics are described as having Caucasian features. A few studies have been done to show that from Dominican Republicans to Costa Ricans (I think this is the beginning and end of the scale, but I can be wrong) there's a spectrum that goes from basically 99% "African," 1% "Caucasian" to 99% "Caucasian", 1% "African." Then again, I could have just been given misinformation. I doubt it, but no one else seems to have mentioned this. I can observe it pretty well, though >.< It's obviously just focusing on two ethnicities (not sure if Caucasian is considered an ethnicity since it include half the world?), but there are definitely a ton of latinos with non-Caucasian features, and I'm not just referencing the multitudes of mixed people.

Sorry to be commenting on your tutorial so many years later v.v 
But I really couldn't figure out why this hadn't been mentioned. I just wanted to put it out there.
Thanks so much for having made these tutorials, though! <3

I'm having a lot of trouble trying to figure out the race/ethnicity of a couple characters (want to change it so they DONT look like a Caucasian colored brown xDDD )

Finding these kind of tutorials and resources is kind of difficult, but it's helping!
thank you SO much for making this!!! I'm not done with my research yet but this did help a lot!! :D

I have 1 question... What about Hispanic people

Well, Hispanic isn't exactly a race. It actually comes under the "caucasian" umbrella. Generally they have wider, sometimes squarish faces, high cheekbones and mid-full lips. I don't think there's exactly a nose type that's exclusively hispanic, they can have more asian, african or caucasian looking noses, but usually it looks like a mix of two I suppose. I hope that helped :)

Ok I'm sorry but I have to say something. First let me start off by saying I love your art and your tutorials. The anatomy series was really helpful! HOWEVER, you start this tutorial saying that stereotypes shouldn't be feared. Yes they should be. People from different groups have a huge range in terms of what they look like! There are black and red-headed Latinos, short Africans, tall Asians, etc. There is a wonderful variety in the human genome and how it expresses itself across populations. As artists, who have the freedom to draw what we want, we should be using our gifts to break ideas about stereotypes. Colonialism has long used "scientific" anatomy studies on foreign peoples, and this piece just continues that.

You are very very right in what you say. I had a pretty inaccurate idea of what a "stereotype" means, when I should've used "archetype" or something better instead to describe the point I tried to make. This tutorial is the one I'm the least satisfied with, and I'm planning to do a improved remake of it in the close future. It's been around 1-2 years since I made this tutorial, and my knowledge and skills have improved during that time.
I really appreciate your concern, thank you :)

Wow I'm actually really impressed that you took the time to step back and say that.  Thank you for being open minded.  I do think you are an incredibly skilled artist.  Thank you.

I'm just sad more people can't take constructive criticism so gracefully :/ Most of the time somebody will bite your head off for telling them how they can improve because they seem to be under the impression that they're perfect already -_-
