Do you generally like it when a character design has a theme? For example food, holidays, seasons, nature elements, gothic, steampunk etc. Does not count characters that look a certain way because of their profession etc (military for example).

to be honest I don't really care whether the design is themed or not. I only really look at the design itself and overall appearance of the design and judge from there.

I'm kinda getting annoyed by designs and species revolved around food

Elements and seasons are about all I like OCs based off of, that's just me though. I don't mind the others, they just do not seem open to change, they offer more freedom.

It really depends for me I guess... xD 
I'm really sick of seeing food-themed characters, but at the same time i LOVE designing them myself. I just do them as adotables though bc I wouldn't like to have a character like that.. So I guess.. I have fun drawing them but I wouldnt want one xD
Same goes for most other themes.. except for element-themed ones! I really like those, because I kinda find them reallly pretty /artistic and stuff o v o

Element ones are nice! Not a huge fan of food themes either :P

It really does depend on the theme, Food themed is hella overused (I'M SORRY KYAH I STILL LOVE YOU) and holidays/seasons we only seem to have in that holiday/season then once that holiday/season is over we just go "eh too spoopy for christmas" and throw them away, forget about them until next year, or redesign them. Nature elements are okay by me I guess? It also depends on the look and that you're not just going "yer a leaf leaf" and giving green eyes and an orange coat? Like I've literally seen someone just make a orange cat with green eyes and one brown paw and saying it was a leaf based cat. Gothic and steampunk I guess I don't really mind? Cause it's more so like a real life fashion thing (I feel like I've offended so many in that one sentence) so it's going to be used quite a bit and I'd hope ya know it changes from character to character but idk man.

i like, but i still prefer non-themed charaters, because i think they are more original and artistic, because the creator doesn't have a base, he/she must create it from blank

Depends on the design really. But I prefer ones who don't in general since I feel it makes them a bit more realistic
