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?

Trust me, I've wasted entirely too much time trying to rationalize my own problems. I don't recommend you waste yours as well. :v:

I wasn't aware that listening to my brain problems was also validating me if I were a talking cartoon animal, but I do appreciate the sentiment.
