Game and Animation friends—-@prettydarke & team are looking for 3D artists and collaborators to seed the Afro Hair Library!
Replying to @prettydarke
I'm looking for 3D artist collaborators to seed the Afro Hair Library. These are PAID commissions for those who can craft loving representations of Blackness. It would be great to work with other Black and PoC artists, so please share/tag folks. I can work with all skill levels.

When will the Library be released? I am hoping to locate Afro and Latina skin textures for Victoria 4 and 4.2 at 17k resolution.

Seems like a good day to announce that I received a Hellman Fellows award to develop an Open Source Afro Hair Library, an antiracist database for high quality 3D models of Black hair. Read about my research and the necessity of this project here: bit.ly/osahl

Are these still being developed? I can't find a link to the source, and the blog post suggests they are still working on them.
