Trope Compilations

Loosely based on my animal compilations, although I guess it would have made a lot more sense to have made these pages first. Compilations of my favorite design tropes from media. Might make separate pages as it gets longer, but right now it's basically a pic spam archive.

Time skips/characters aging

I really enjoy seeing any kind of "alternate versions" of characters, that's why I geek out over AU fan designs and stuff. I especially like seeing characters grow up and noticing how their design changes to reflect their age and personality; there's something oddly satisfying about it.

I prefer stories that actually age their characters progressively instead of just utilizing flashbacks, but flashbacks are easier to write and therefore way more common... whatever, I'll take what I can get.

Gender swaps

This kind of goes hand-in-hand with the previous one, what with making alternate designs for characters and all.

Cabbie hats

I don't know what it is about these hats but boy, I really love them... the poofier the better.

I'm not really a huge hat person, I have really thick hair that's prone to getting gross and itchy when I wear hats, but a few years ago I bought myself a white cabbie hat in union square, and I wear it whenever I'm able to. I really like that thing.

Thick/defined eyebrows on girls

Another random design thing I really like... I don't know, it's just a nice change of pace from the usual single line eyebrow designs most girls are subjected to. It makes characters look more unique and, in my opinion, more attractive and overall appealing.

This doesn't really apply to guys because they generally get thicker eyebrows anyway.
