So I replied to another post regarding the topic, I might’ve misread it actually >>; but nonetheless I wanted to point out a small thing.
That hey, yea, we artists tend to follow the same formula for creating appealing characters, and it’s totally still going on, it sells, and it’s hard to argue with that.
I honestly might not draw many varieties for a while since I’ve fallen for the appeal trap too, (If I ever get around to doing stories or such I’ll definitely try for a variety!) but just remember that outside of this artist problem, that looks don’t truly matter yakno. So I don’t want anyone thinking about trying to ‘perfect’ yourself to be like those characters or those people advertisements that are totally photoshopped.
So long as you’re proud of how you are and how you look, others will think so too. Love your body everyone~ For after all, it’s worked hard to be there for you no matter what … !
(I couldn’t really remember a lot of genetic/permanent-changes for drawing up the 3 character designs ehheh; but I tried to go for a bit of variety - Removed jaw, anorexia, visible bones, gigantism, scars, stretch marks, burns, missing limb, excess body fat, etc. Anyone wanna adopt ‘em btw?)
