    I'm curious if most people prefer animated or real life faceclaims these days. I've noticed that, maybe... 60-70% of Jcink sites are real life/model playbys, while Proboards sites tend to be animanga. It's an interesting divide, isn't it?

    I prefer real life face claims. I'm not a huge fan of anime and for the sites I play on, for the most part anime pictures wouldn't work.

    I prefer real life face claims, animated face claims are just so weird to me.

    A lot of the Novas I use are solely RL faces. If someone creates a 3D model, we automatically consider it unique, and don't worry about it as much.

    Real life faceclaims only.

    We use both in our boards (since it's in a comic verse). When I write, I usually have real life face claims in the back of my mind. Both on the hobby boards and in my own writing. I would like to get someone to actually draw my original characters, keeping in mind the face claim as the basic idea... I will do this someday.

    Definitely real people.

    I think if a celeb face isn't used, a "mood" pic better suits.

    I prefer real life people for face claims. It helps me to get into the story a lot more.
