And Caucasian characters are still the only default character base?
Why are there so many new Caucasian skins and no new Black or Asian skins?
Why were there no High Resolution 4K Black or Asian skins in previous CC versions?

This is 2020. It's a little embarrassing for CC to suffer the same racial inequalities as we do in real life.

Yeah, it's pretty ridiculous. Looking at the new paid "Human Anatomy" pack... 10/12 of the characters are white. There are white characters in various ages and physiques, and then there's one black man and one asian woman... I guess black women and asian men don't exist? The "Realistic Human Skin" product does have a black female skin base, but still no asian male. And there's nothing resembling more medium-brown skin tones.

There really should be a tool for creating custom skin bases. Something like Zev0's Skin Builder product at Daz3D, which makes it easy to create a base skin with any kind of realistic (or even non-realistic) skin tones. You'd almost think a tool called "SkinGen" would include something like that.

Just use Headshot. I can create any ethnicity I like that way.

Black and Asian characters do not exist natively in CC3.  That is a serious problem nobody's bothered to mention until now. We've all been brainwashed into assuming that white characters are the default and that any character who is not white has to be custom designed or, god forbid, purchased at additional cost.

@animagic --- Headshot is for faces, what are we supposed to do about the rest of the body?
@4u2ges ---  BLM = Black Lives Matter.  Pretend for a moment that you are not Caucasian.

So, you guys don't believe that non-white characters should be included in the basic CC package?  SMH.

As far as Black base characters go, over the years we've only gotten the fat Black lady, the Black boxer, and that crazy Black guy Kane from iC4 - THEY ARE ALL STEREOTYPES.

RL should do the right thing and make Asian and Black characters STANDARD IN CC3 with full skins. PERIOD.

I would have loved to see each race represented in the human anatomy pack, 10 variations of each. That would be so useful and not just black and Asian but native american, African, Norsemen, Arabic, Spanish a massive pack that encompasses the majority of skin colors and facial structures. I personally would pay up for that. My guess  as to why they dont is because they dont see a demand for it. They stock the shelves with what sells, equality has nothing to do with it. The only color reallusion wants to see as a business is the color of money.

@direx1974  Why bother posting a stupid comment that adds nothing to the conversation?
