I have no favourite material or transformation; I'll take pretty much anything going.
In fact, I find concentrating on just one to be a little boring after a while, so I'm glad that many ASFR artists vary their subjects.

I seem to enjoy the rarer materials such as glass/crystal [FSF EDIT: I've already added that to the poll, thanks, I had forgotten about those materials] and wood more than 'ordinary' stone and gold, but this is simply because I've seen them less. I wouldn't rate any one higher than the others.

It would be easier to state the types I don't like, which are:

Those life-size doll things that seem to be quite popular in Japanese artists' work. Kind of like mannequins with more joints. I don't think much of those. Come to that, I don't go for mannequins all that much either, although they're better than the dolls.

Conversely, I do like the more traditional sense of 'doll', as in 'a child's toy', whether of the rigid or soft variety.

Freezing and Ice are two different things. It's difficult to explain in words, but one is where a girl gets frozen, the other is where she appears to actually become ice.
I like the latter, but not the former.

Metal, pero creo que estaría listado dentro de Gold como metal.

That's weird. I could have sworn my post was longer than that. Maybe the times got mixed, my browser was playing up and the forum decided to log me out and drop my post while I was writing it. -grrr-
I needed to make an addition anyway:

IMPORTANT ADD: Now that I think of it, I do actually have a favourite type of ASFR: transformation into a painting, which unfortunately seems to be very rare.
Of course that doesn't really count as a 'material' so I can't vote for that.

Here I'll put the rest of my earlier post that I could salvage:

(in the first part of the post)
Flattening and other shape-changing (example: http://timesignalman.blog79.fc2.com/), while not considered 'real' ASFR by some, remains a close contender to traditional ASFR in my mind.

(in the don't like list)
  • Encasement I can take or leave, it depends a lot on the individual pose.
    However, I only like encasement as in 'large blocks of ice/crystal'.
    I find the 'fake petrification' type of encasement (where a person seems to be petrified or whatever but is actually just enclosed in a perfect shell of the substance) to be quite silly.
    That is not ASFR, that's a bondage variant. (Of course, technically, true ASFR also comes under the bondage family, but come on.)
    It's also just as impossible as true ASFR if you like your girls 'alive', so don't delude yourselves.
  • Chocolate or other foodstuffs I've never had much time for. Indifference with 35% disinterest. (Meaning it has to be pretty special to interest me, but I don't dislike it either. It's just kind of there.)

[One more addendum: I've been prattling on about "true ASFR", meaning full transformation into stone or whatever substance.
It just now struck me that that's a bit silly; I should have called it something else, as true ASFR is robotisation... oh well.]

I'm pretty much open for almost anything. Big emphasis on almost. It would take me longer to list what I like than what I don't. It actually also depends on the story/background/situation the character is in. I like the surprised capture or victim expressions best.

What I really don't like is seeing pornographic expressions or situations mixed with them.

FRIEND!!!

Unfortunately, you'll be hard-pressed finding anything without such content anywhere other than Japanese websites.
And don't go anywhere near the American ones. An American transforma-fic isn't complete without SEX from beginning to end, regardless of what type of transformation it is, even non-ASFR.
You don't even want to know how I know this. Just don't ask.

I know that for sure which is why I don't request those type of drawings from artists. Take a look at any of the 300+ images I have on my random signature and you won't find a single one.

The closest thing you might find is probably boob touch and I don't really mind that.

Boob-touching would come under 'ecchi' as opposed to 'hentai'.
Ecchi is fine, so long as you don't make it the prime focus of your story, or it will feel flat and gratuitous to the reader (some readers, anyway) unless you're a damned good author, that is.
Unfortunately, I find a similar sentiment applies to ASFR itself, at least when I'm writing it.
It presents a problem... how am I supposed to write an ASFR story when I can't focus on ASFR?!
Mind, I hate pretty much everything I write regardless, so I doubt it even matters.

Umm, something on topic... Ah!
I wish more artists would use precious stones for their 'subjects'. I don't think I've seen even a single picture that uses such a thing yet.

I'm a big fan of Gold, any other metal, marble, ore freezing (frozen in ice). Of coarse, the last one is my favorite.

I don't know what it is, but there's something about a woman frozen by a cryogenic blast that just seems to catch my interest. What sucks is that there are so few of us! But I'm thankful that my ice freeze fetish turned into an all around petrificaiton, immobilization.

I like any materials really, though some a little more than others.  If I had to pick a favorite, eh, I guess I'd go with normal stone.  Or maybe plaster encasement (and if you want to talk semantics, personally I consider anything that results in an immobile statue (realistic or not) to be ASF...er, well part of this fetish anyway...but that's just me).  But anyway, that's not even on the list.

And yeah, a lack of variety can get kind of boring.  As for poses, personally I don't mind a little fanservice on statues, such as panty-shots or even nudity.  But I usually only care for it if it's unintentional (at least, on the victim's part).

 Shocked Has no one really thought of mentioning wax!? Probably my personal favorite, be it coversion to or encasement in wax.

As for maturity of the scene in question, too much and it shifts the focus. The focus should be on the peril of transformation, not on being a sexual victim.  Angry Some of the artists on solidgirl have artworks in which the victim's clothes are petrified as well, and consequently crumble away, which is fine for me because it makes enough sense and adds to the ASFR qualities of the art.

Slightly dark but smooth granite with a small amount of surface cracks to emphasize the body's natural lines. A natural dark tone helps to contrast better with highlights and smoothness makes it easier to recognize facial detail I find.

Outside of that, a rough encrusted icy freeze is refreshing. I still find that Maiki does the best frozen look after all these years, perhaps transferable experience that came with working with the WAM fetish is the reason behind that. You could say I like my stone clean and my ice messy.
