Not everyone completely understood how to use the new character creator the first time around, and a lot of people ended up with an avatar they didn't want. CCP has now given those players a second chance to tweak things and get it just right.

So are you happy with what you came up with on the second try? Let's see the enlarged versions.

Yes.

My first attempt was HORRIBLE. I looked like a sea hag.

Now I'm much more fappable.

My first portrait looked ok in the chat box, but on the big picture he was kinda ugly.

The opposite with this one.

EDIT: Portrait hasn't updated yet... unless it looks different to other people. Old portrait had the metal caldari background.

Yes much better. at first mine didn't look real bad but way to far from the camera so in game he looked like a lil grey figure who was just a lil to friendly and dorky looking lol.

No I feel it's a good slightly ****ed off look or constipated... What do you think? Razz

Yes. It's much closer to what I managed to create on Sisi, but it was also a hellalot easier now that I had figured out how to get constant rendering updates that I could compare with the target image.

I'm quite happy with the result (... although I am bit annoyed that lips still look like plastic on the small pic as soon as you put on a smile, even with no gloss at all. Rolling Eyes )
Just for reference here is a big version. Very Happy

You look more depressed than evil. You need lessons in looking bad. From me. And my badassery. Doctorate. Dr Badass.

I also remade Cat, not sure if her picture is better but as a full character she looks nicer imo. At least once Incarna comes I'll be more happy with her!

And did they add hair colours in today's patch? I'm pretty sure I couldn't pick this blonde colour before!?

edit: old and new

Yeah there is definitively a discrepancy in the char creator between what makes a good 2d 'portrait' and the overall look of your 3d 'avatar'.

I went for the latter this time and I'm really looking forward to bringing it to life with ambulation et al.

Waiting to see, to be honest - things look a bit iffy right now, but I had the same issue last time around and had to wait for cache nonsense to solve itself to see what I *really* looked like.

I do like that I'm not ten miles away from the camera now. Though, it kind of takes away from the entire clothing thing, but then, I guess that's what ambulation is for. (And it's not like the clothing available right now is all that awesome.) But anyway, I felt silly, with a half-body shot, when 99% of the rest of EVE is shoving their face into the camera. Razz

Made very few body/facial adjustments, mostly because I discovered that you could do more while I was playing with alts, lol. Mostly spent time on new posing. Should've spent more time, I think, but I went with my gut instinct of, *click*, "Ooo, that one."

Edit: Ooo, there we go.

I am happy with the level freckles and scaring. Also the client remembered all the settings. Down side is the photo buffers on the left could have been bigger so it is easier to see.

I almost made a mistake taking snapshots without realising that it can take a picture of you with your eyes closed!

Only an irritant is that I wished my new forum potrait could have been a big larger on the face area like my initial mugshot. Oh well.

EDIT: Forgot to say THANKS CCP! Smile

No, I am not happy at all. The new avatar looked great under "customization" and slightly less great in "portrait" and the snapshots. In game, my avatar is pretty awful. Oh well, I guess I cannot get my first avatar back so I will just have to live with the new mess that I created for myself. Year after year after year I will have to look at this thing. Very Happy

First picture was taken too far away which made smaller pictures look too shadowy, new one works better.

I'm alot happier with the second attempt. First one ended up black hair, black lipstick with a dark background.

This one ended up a bit more colorful, even though I don't know if im 100% content. Oh, and the picture doen't look as good as it does in the character creator :(
