For most of my stories, appearance really isn't that important, unless the character isn't human, then obviously it has to play some part. When I'm first coming up with a character, they tend to have a nebulous form in my head, so I like to use a dollmaker to give them a more concrete image. I can't always get the exact look I envision, but it's usually better than what I come up with when I try to draw (as seen in yesterday's post). Plus, it sometimes reminds me of things that I might have overlooked, like eyebrows.
