Im finally gonna try to make a ref sheet for unnamed emo cow and I need some inspo! Post some of your favorite ref sheets or your own!
And as an added bonus question: what do you personally feel like you should have other than the obvious picture of them? Their gender/sexuality? Their interests? Their high score on Tony Hawks Pro Skater 2? Their n00dz?

I'd include stuff about your character's personality to give artists a feel for how your character is! And maybe a couple different views of your fursona and different outfits!

Both of these are great ones! The first link is a little more detailed and the second one is less so.

To me, I don't think it's necessary. Whether you join a RP for commissioning someone, you only really need to show them, "here, my character looks like this".
Personally, I feel like the texts would only distract the viewers from the actual pictures.

As for me, I don't do refs, only got seperate pictures here and there.

Put important visual details on the sheet, extra personality text can be put in the description or toyhouse page.

Unfortunately not everyone pays attention to extra text. I'm still looking for a solution myself.
