@MaouLinEn said in Do Guys Make Better Looking Female Characters Than Girls?:
requesting names is somewhat insulting as it denotes a portent of disbelief and demand of proof, it also hints at bating, but if u want an example of a successful female artist check out sakimichan, last i heard she makes $50k a month
Personally I think it's a bit silly to infer maliciousness in a simple inquiry for evidence, generally it should not be seen as offensive to be skeptical, because that's how secular thinking works. He doesn't just believe random internet person saying things on the internet, he requires a bit more than that, and I don't think that's a problem.
That being said, in the event that you were roping my post in to your initial criticism, I wanted to say that you're focusing a bit too hard on the implications of the word "better", and the OP sort of corroborated this conclusion with his response to you. Everybody already knows that "better" is subjective, you kind of have to give people the benefit of the doubt in that regard, but he gave his opinion with the thread title, so you're free to voice disagreement like you did but there's no need to feel so aggravated over it. In fact I didn't even use the word better myself, I just focused on the implications of the male gaze when applied to "art" or in this case video game avatars.
Finally, it would be nearly impossible to discern whether or not more NSFW artists are male or female. This is partially because most artists will go by a pen name and thus it can sometimes be difficult to even interpret gender, and secondly because you can't possibly know ever artist in the world, there just isn't any good statistics on this for you to back up this claim, hence the OP's skepticism.
That being said, I do value your perspective as someone in the industry, and your input was interesting, but just be wary that most people are often subject to their own biased circles of anecdotal experience, nobody is really immune to that.
All said and done, I do think there is truth to the male gaze playing a significant role in people potentially believing that males can create more ideal avatars, but of course I have absolutely no science to back it up, it simply just makes sense to me lol.
