To be honest i feel like whatever you put on your reference sheet is your choice. Shes your fursona and character. Put in as much or as little information you wish to apply to your reference sheet. :3 Cant wait to see it :heart:

I think you should do a little of both. Put permanent stuff (like the character's name, gender, etc.) actually on the sheet but then include other data that might change over time or that you may need to expand upon in the description so it's easy to edit :)

Personally, I'd prefer the information to be on the ref sheet itself, since I'm more likely to read it that way; I tend to skip descriptions, but text in the refs is bound to attract my attention. :)

I would say have some important bullet points on the ref sheet and put the longer version in the description.

I'm bad at summarizing things so I don't know D:

For example (I'll use myself) I could put a bullet that said "bisexual" but then in the description I could go further by saying I'm sexually more attracted to females, but emotionally more attracted to males. Bisexual would still define me, but the description would give more insight.

I think maybe you should put a very abridged version on the ref, so it covers the main points and things and then add more detail on the points in the description? That way you can generally understand without having to search through a wall of text but still get details if you don't understand or are interested in something :0

Maybe 50-50
You can have a wall of text for the description, focusing on the detail :la:
Then some less detailed fun facts on the sheet itself :D

i prefer it in the description because it can be hard to read the words on a reference sheet, especially if theres a lot. if theres not much to say then on the sheet is fine.

I think it's easier when it's all on the sheet itself, then everything you need to know is in one single place

Most of your watchers are babies who think only having a sideview and a bunch of colours counts as a ref sheet anyway :stare:

you can't do shit with that you need all sides all info all specials all personals EVERYTHING ON A PIECE OF PAPER

I don't want to go back to a deviation page hidden behind 5 pages of other stuff to find some info that's somewhere in a description, I want it on the image so I can just import it and read it from there

Yeaaaa, indeed :noes: It's just nice when you can download the image and have it without needing to deal with possibly bad connection (or stored/deleted deviations) to get that information back ffff
