@Nuebot said in Do Guys Make Better Looking Female Characters Than Girls?:
"Better" is entirely subjective. Being able to design a character is not determined by your gender or sex, but people typically design characters that appeal to their own sense of aesthetic or interests rather than appealing to others.
This person speaks truth. A lot of people often find characters I make quite "pretty" or "beautiful," rather than "adorable" or "cute." Though some people tend to say "cute" interchangeably with "pretty." I'm not one of those people though, I use "cute" when I think of "adorable" or actually "cute" rather than "pretty" or "beautiful." Which is how it was pretty much always used until the late 90s.
I also often "color match" my characters and their attire, which often causes people to think they're aesthetically pleasing. This is something more so I learned about in school and some of the extra curricular art classes I took in middle school and not to mention my desire to arrange things in optimal ways has caused me to think of ways things can still look aesthetically pleasing while still being arranged in a functional way.
A lot of RPGs that have town building mechanics or "NPC recruitment" systems to have them be placed in parts of a ship, airship, etc. (IE: Suikoden series, or Breath of Fire II) also taught me a lot about this.
