You are so sweet!
I’m glad you like my depictions of Storm! As I’ve said multiple times, I have a very specificimage of what I think Storm should look like. Regal, commanding, strong, elegant, and all that good stuff that tends to be associated with our favorite weather-manipulating goddess. And again, I feel honored that others share my vision of Storm :)
And in terms of actually depicting Ororo as a Black woman; I think it’s important that artists actually recognize Characters of Colour, and NOT just by making us look like sunburnt Europeans (ew). It’s equally important that artists are able to present to viewers characters of visibly different ethnic backgrounds. I keep facepalming myself whenever I see a racially-ambiguous Jubilee or a white-passing Storm. Or even when artists lazily homogenize faces and body types and simply give each character a palette swap
Like, gee thanks Greg Land.
Again, I’m glad that my depictions of Ororo reach out to you and other Black fans when some others cannot. I really appreciate it and I feel deeply honored.
It’d be supremely audacious of me to say that I, as an Asian-American man, have experienced the same misrepresentation in media as Black Women. However, with Storm being my all-time favorite character from any work of fiction, I’ll do whatever it is I can as to contribute in making amends to that misrepresentation (of the latter group).
Again, thank you so much! I really appreciate your kind thoughts! <3

Thank you so much for responding!! But check out that response though!! I love artists that give our people our due; and the fact that he can sympathize being another POC, and recognize the whitewashing of comicbook characters of color is just glorious. I may not have many followers but please, please, follow this artist and give him our support!
Thanks for the promo love! You are adorable :)
