I prefer more fantastical~ avis, to be honest. Sometimes the more realistic-looking ones can be really cool too though, if they're really unique or something. For the most part though I feel like I can be more creative when I use fantasy-ish items.
I then to do more realistic avatars than fantastic, not taking into account the companion items I usually wear. Sometimes I do more fantastic avatars as demons or battle mages from time to time. Still my realistic avatars look like they belong on a fantasy game.
I'll go with fantastical avis~
My thing is fantasy C: that and "anime" normal, I guess XD; like my current, it's something that wouldn't be too hard to see in a cartoon but not something that would fly irl. I don't know, I have a lot of cute things irl so I come to Gaia to satisfy the other needs XDDD I can't just grow wings irl and be a succubus lol, in Gaia that's quite easy~
i guess sort of both! i mean, obviously the horns and tail wouldn't really be realistic but i like more casual-looking avatar styles. at the same time i also like doing funky, fluffy and cute styles that probably could not exist in reality like ever.
i'm not really a fan of doing stuff like knights or fairies or whatever though. :c
Given that nine times out of ten, Al is wearing elf ears, a bone-white body dye and an enormous pair of fluffy, feathered wings no matter WHAT else I put on him? Yeah... I'd say he's firmly in the Fantasy camp, I think. xd
