Please elaborate on this, I haven't been able to find much Granblue doujin material even though the character designs scream for it. The one doujin I did find was dynamite, but I've found nothing for Katalina specifically and there's a lot of other girls I don't recognize.

My collection so far has a Mary/Clarisse, Yuel and Cagliostro (x2). Nothing for Katalina. Not even a drug rape/tentacle NTR doujin for Lyria!

Where the gold at?

If it was only for like background or wide shots I could understand, but all the characters should be in focus with clean lines. Also I hate that little dragon thing.
I too was bothered by the sketch-work, but thankfully it decreases with each subsequent episode. There was less in Episode 2 than in Episode 1, and I hardly remember any in 3-4.

As for Vyr, I know nothing about him/her, but it strikes me as odd that nobody really bats an eye at it. Everyone treats Vyr as normal even though it's the only one of its kind, has been hanging around for a while, and looks like a dragon. It's early, but from what I can tell in Granblue, dragons = gods.

This is kind of an odd complaint, given the CGI in Granblue Fantasy is actually pretty natural looking with the 2D graphics. At the same time, you invoke the new Berserk series which is a textbook example of how horrible and jarring CGI can be.

So I can feel ya, but at the same time I don't get it.

I don't see how you could fail to find it searching for it given that it's everywhere, but okay: try searching for 1) グランブルーファンタジー and/or 2) the names of the specific characters you like best. If you're going to search by name, then ideally do so on a tagging site first (examples include Danbooru and E-Hentai), as searching on a tracker first will only net you those uploads which feature the girl's name in the title.

I would say that Draphs have historically been the most popular, but in recent months there's been a huge swing towards more of the human females. Other races tend to be pretty underrepresented. The most popular Draphs in doujin works are Narmaya, Danua, and Anila. For the humans, I'd say the most popular have been Vira and Djeeta.

Also: I didn't say the last thing you quoted. Loki did.

Now that you mention it, I have seen a number of Vira doujins. But I ignored them because most were yuri with Katalana, and that is not my scene.

It's a bit of a pity, yet not surprising the draphs are popular. I say that because anything featuring the "kemono-mimi" has skyrocketed in popularity following Kemono Friends, and a lot of the draph women have the same, recurring problem: huge breasts that are literally spilling out of their blouses/bras.

There's a cow warrior thing right now in the anime who has this problem. I want to blame the farmers who selectively bred her race for milk production over the the centuries on her embarrassingly large problem(s).

I think this disproves Konosuba's author is a woman.

Also SUPER SPOILERS! We find out who the best girl is, the author's favourite, and likely the winning girl. Don't watch if you don't wanna get butt-devastated! HAHAHAHA!!

Just look at this sad situation:
