So, what would this mean for someone who had, say, created a character that's an amalgamation of some of the more overused elements of OC designs as a joke, and over the course of a few years came to like the character more and more unironically even though nothing about them had changed? Just as a for instance. Hypothetically.
This doesn't speak directly to that. It's more about a metaphor for the relationship between character and audience than it is about predicting the outcome for a given character concept. I referred to obvious examples of "bad" characters like mary sues and anatomical disasters, but I already knew those characters were a 'nope', this is just a new way of thinking about it.

Are people buying what your character's selling?

e: also, just for the record, I don't think I've ever thought you or anyone here is bad at character design, or anything. I know we have plenty of folks with some degree of insecurity and I wouldn't want anyone to think I was subtexting them when I talk about horrible characters :(

Thinking about it now, I guess I'm disinclined to see this sort of thing as any sort of a contract or deal, but I realize that's likely because I still have a very low idea of how much my own time (the thing I, the viewer, would be giving up) is worth. Having drawn things before, I know I've been on both sides of this deal, but when I'm posting something I've made my default feeling is that what I've made is worthless and anyone who pays attention to it does so out of pity at best.

In short, I guess I didn't see your comparison the same way since I still have not fully gotten out of my ridiculously unhealthy attitude about things I make vs. things other people make.
So let me try and repeat this back, see if I've understood. You don't like to think of it as a contract because, when you're the creator, you don't think it's worth anything (and hence nobody will/should want to enter into that contract). Conversely, when you're enjoying someone else's character, you don't think it's good because... you're not "paying" enough for it? Because your own time/interest is devalued relative to that of other people who, I guess, implicitly have better taste?

This has been making the rounds. I don't know why it amuses me as much as it does.

And yes, someone always makes a Bojack reference in the comments.

Not for a long while, at least - along with cost, I think I'd struggle to store a full suit at the moment, and there'd be additional concerns with overheating. Also I wanted something it'd be easy to use regular size shirts with.*

I'll have to see if I can make it to EF at some point! (Probably not this year though?)

A lot of makers do offer flexible payment plans (which is how I paid), but they are absolutely luxury items and should be prioritized as such. I'm lucky enough to be able to squirrel away a few hundred quid per month, but that's only after years of saving to make sure I can always cover an emergency.

There are sometimes more affordable options depending on how customized you want to get - I saw unicorn fursuit heads on sale in my local Aldi the other day, and at ConFuzzled last year, there was a maker with an "adopt-a-tail" thing for very low cost (that I very nearly went for before realizing I'd struggle getting it home).

I had people mistake Kat as a guy, with some people suggesting I give her eyelashes so it’s more clear she’s a girl.

I’ve never been a fan of the whole β€œeyelashes = female” thing. I’m not against the use of eyelashes in character designs (I even have a couple of characters that has eyelashes), but only using it to signal that the character is a girl always irked me. Kat isn’t the kind of character where eyelashes would fit with her personality.

That being said, here are some doodles I did in response to it, including Kuma (a male character) suddenly sporting lashes.

She can turn her tail into ANYTHING. Yes, it shoots bullets. The tail is super magical.

An upcoming comic also has her owning a rocket launcher separately, though

I just saw this and read the story you linked as well. To me it at first seemed more melancholy than what you might typically expect of a fursona background story, but when I saw that it represented your experience with being trans, I understood why. Thank you for sharing it.
