My human on page 7 is made to resemble me in rl. There are slight differences like my nose is a bit different and my hair a bit shorter, but I'm not going for an exact replica of myself here.
So instead of people creating their characters based on their personal preference, they rather go for what is "generally accepted"... most disappointing.
And looking through these pics, I think that people DID base their characters on personal preference. Maybe it's what they wish they looked like or what they find attractive in the opposite sex, but really who are you to judge how people create their characters? Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
