  1. YES.
    As in a big “amen” yes. This is something I live and draw by.
    It pays to get ugly, in my opinion.
    It’s challenging to design, fun to draw, and interesting to see. Much more interesting, in fact, if your eyes have been dulled to conventional beauty by slogging through waves of blandly supermodelesque nobodies.
    There are only so many ways to draw a physically attractive character. But the catalogue of physical flaws is near-infinite, and any combination can still look “good,” and at times brilliant. Flaws add depth to otherwise forgettable people with little effort, plus it’s more likely an imperfect character will seem original as the patterns are less established.
    BTW, the blue man is my favorite; slight aging portliness = awesome.
