If you have an OC with multiple forms (ex. Human and animal) how would you organise their ref?

I tend to make semi-detailed refs, so I tend to do separate sheets and just link them in the description. None of my characters have particularly small separate forms so I think it might be a bit overwhelming to have 2 large forms on one very detailed sheet. I also don't have to specify what form I want them in if I commission someone. Instead, I can just link the ref of whichever form I want them in

I do separate sheets! for my multiple form characters. Its easier for me to put more detail in there separate sheets instead of having them all together kinda overkill if you ask me. o3o

I'm doing that for my main oc, she's a shape shifter with human, anthro, feral and a variety of animal forms

Depends on the amount of details n sizes I think! Like one of my characters has a simple alternate rat form that he uses, so it's small enough to just pop into the corner. But if your character changes from a detailed design to a bigger and more detailed form, then you probs want another ref so it's not overwhelming.

Definitely separate ref sheets.. Idk why but having them all on one ref might be overkill.

True! Some characters have like 5 forms so in those cases, I think separate sheets would be the best X'D But I think if a character has only one other form other the one they frequent, then maybe it's okay to put them in one sheet o3o
