of course it looks Asian, but I guess it should. I wonder what percentage of the global population is Asian?

It is a lot more than that. About 60% of the worls population is Asian, China, India, Indonesia and Pakistan alone account for about 3 billion people.

It's not really pics of people. It's made from a bunch of little CGI figures and they are shaded to recreate a photo.
