Just curious: what are some character designs elements that you guys like?

For example, clothes, hair, colour schemes, weapons, etc.

I agree with a lot of brae's things but I have some more of my own:

- black/purple colour schemes
- hoods
- males with longer (let's say around shoulder-length) hair
- pauldrons (shoulder armour)
- Unique / Signature weapons (ie: RWBY which has insanely cool stuff like a sniper rifle/scythe larger than a person, or alternately regular weapons that are somehow made special, like the sword Backbiter from Percy Jackson, which is made of both celestial bronze and regular steel, allowing it to harm both mortals and monsters.)
- white hair/albinism
- tattered capes
- really ostentatious-looking outfits that include bits of super fancy armour
- tattoos/marks that glow when powers are used.

Oh yeah, that reminds me,

-women who wear armour that is actually practical for combat, and not for an R18 Ren Fair.

- Literally anything desert-themed
- Admittedly there's a soft spot in my heart for female characters that wear square glasses (especially half-lensed glasses)
- Identifiable accessories such as weapons (for example a certain character wears a lily in her hair, another character has this freaking awesome pistol)
- In a scifi universe, futuristic body armour)
- Overcoats or jackets make most charaters look totally bad ass
- Hoodies because they can be badass in some cases, and unbearably cute in other cases
- Realistic body proportions
- Cardigans with sleeves that are too long because that too is so unbearably cute
In a world of war and conflict, an extermination throws the last great bastion of peace into aggression. In the midst of this, a child sorcerer seeks justice for his fallen home. A repentant assassin and a messenger of the future rush to save their last refuge from destruction. The dead return, backed by a forgotten god. Ideals clash. Morals crumble. And it will not end until one half of the world stands in the ashes of the other.

goddamn I think I share more of lemon's taste but here I go anyway

-pastel colors
-"pop" colors, like bright yellow and blue and stuff
-BOB CUTS BOB CUTS BOB CUTS and fluffy hair (fluffy bob cut kills me, AAAA)
-short hair, curls, unruly bangs!!
-small plaited braids/low pigtails (think Nozomi Tojo and stuff) in general are nice too!!
-hoodies, bonus if sleeves go over the HANDS!!! BIG SLEEVES!!!
-light colored cardigans over sailor uniforms are adorable
-light colored eyes like light blue or gray!!
-bandages
- FRECKLES
-round, bright (highlight wise) EYES!! round face!!
-ok so there's natural brown hair that I like but consider: LAVENDER HAIR or pastel hair colors in general
-hair bands that either push back bangs a little or are practically there for aesthetic and not practical use
-happy go lucky auras
-I LOVE CINNAMON ROLLS CAN YOU TELL


If tomorrow's forecast could be really really sunny, that'd be nice, tho

Brown skin
May 28, 2016 9:07pm
- Earth tones
- Red or brown hair
- Pointed ears (this includes both elves and vulpines)
- Satchels/scabbards with those shoulder straps that cross from shoulder to hip
- Spears, straight-bladed swords
- Dark boots and gloves
- Tunics, cloaks, robes
- Headgear with a forward-facing tip...? Like dragoon helmets. Heck, they could be isoceles tricorner hats, and I would like them.
- Neckerchiefs
You do seem to know what is needed. Yes, what a Trainer needs is a virtuous heart. Pokémon touch the good hearts of Trainers and learn good from wrong. They touch the good hearts of Trainers and grow strong... Go onwards! The Champion is waiting!

Flow and form has to be the most important imo:)
also gangsta stylez like what the gorillaz got going on

Do you guys want to do a bit of a challenge? We could design original characters showcasing our preferences to go with our lists

The last time I did any was clost to three years ago now, and even then it was based on existing sprites.
