so, say someone already has a good design for their character. but, it's a bit too... "normal". what suggestions would you give to make a character's design a big more out there, but not so much that the design becomes too complex?
I think what makes a good character design, aside from the basics such as shapes and silhouettes, is having several core details that remain unchanged, while everything else can fluctuate.
If there's one part of a character's design that's immediately recognizable, then you're on a good way to making a good character design. A good way to know if you got there is to try to draw your character in the most minimal, simple style you can, and see if they are still recognizable. Look no further than Araki's quick character sketches to see what I mean.
For some examples with my OCs.. with Barbi, I think the specific messy spiky shape of her hair, the axes on her shirt and the white collar and sleeves of the crop top give her a pretty distinct look

King can wear a lot of different outfits but still remains recognizable because of his extremely distinct hairstyle. I also always have a specific aesthetic in mind when designing clothes for him, so every time I give him a new outfit it seems believable that it's something he would wear. (Pinning down your character's fashion sense is really helpful if you want to design more outfits for them and keep them unified across the board)

Luv has been drawn in many different ways, but because the core elements of his design (fire hair, heart mask & striped legs) always stick around, he stays recognizable in pretty much every style

Giving a character design some minor but distinct detail that goes beyond the predictable (shirt print or necklace would count as 'predictable') can quickly elevate it from 'normal' to a bit more 'out there', as you put it. Weird hairstyles, hair accessories, earrings, beads, brooches or badges in unusual places on clothes, patterns, stitches or rips, skin being shown in an interesting way, unusual materials (fur, see-through, fishnet..) in unusual places - just one or two of things like these can help a design to become really interesting!
You see a LOT of that sort of designing in jojo.
My favourite design in jojo is Giorno who's a perfect example of how what was initially a pretty boring suit was turned into a gorgeous design. A lot of what makes his design work so well is really just small and very simple details; the hair, the ladybugs, the heart chest opening. An aspect I personally also love very much is the checkerboard pattern on the back of his jacket, it adds a little extra flair for when the character is drawn from behind.
Jotaro is much the same, with the most iconic parts of his design being the hat-hair, the badges on his hat, the chain and the long flowing jacket. An interesting aspect of Jotaro is also how his silhouette remains the same across all of his appearances in other parts, keeping him immediately recognizable, because the core parts of his design always return.
I think that a few good interesting details make a much more interesting, memorable and striking design than a ton of super detailed parts.
I really hope this was helpful!! <3

The ArtVsArtist trend made me realize that I hardly took any selfies this year. Gotta love those insecurities. ^^’’’
But it was a wonderful year of colorful art and pushing myself out of my comfort zone!!

Inspired by @always-anxious-skychild’s post on skids being born in different realms! I decided to go with a similar “looks different per realm” approach with the Candlefolk bc I mean — the materials theyre made of changes per realm, might as well give them more defining features!
This is a concept for a Valley-born Candlefolk! They have four wings, and a long tail, similar to the racer mantas in the realm. They tend to shape their bodies into a streamlined shape as well. When racing, they don skintight (stonetight?) suits to reduce drag.
Theyre frequently made of fancier metals, glass, or rose-colored stone! They also love to dress themselves in banners and fabrics that trail behind them as they fly.
