Yes, it's a little disorienting how different your character looks once you actually see it in game. I'm not certain what's going on--it feels as though maybe the in-game textures are a little messed up, because the lighting effects on the in-game skin tend to lend my characters a doughy, clay-faced look.

I think part of the problem, too, are the dumb, empty-eyed expressions on their faces. Devs need to work on that.

Yeah, something is off either on the lighting or the skin, or both.
I think there's a distinct lack of reflected light, which accounts for the really deep shadows.

you look exactelly same, just light is different and add some ugly shadow ....

try to look at you at the end of the docking catwalk... all my alt looks perfect and accorded to the profile pics nothing changed in the shape or size i determined when i created them with the new carbon CC

depending on lights direction my char take that look: its only light since you dont have a graphical bug or other like some people.

the only thing im concerned is : 3 feminin char 2 got the boobs i designed medium size not too noticeable, excepte Rhyne who got something like 4 cups more than the 2 other with the same setup

but nothing to worry

edit : dumb empty eyed effect ... that one i dont get it too my char have blue (black lined or no external line) and they look natural idling avatar often smile change a lil expression ok its not overdone expression but still.

Yeah, the model is the same, but the way it looks in the game is just unnatural. It probably has to do with the way the light reflects off the skin that they can't get to look quiet right. And you also have to keep in mind that real skin is semi-translucent to a certain depth, which would also affect the way it reflects the light due to refraction. It's all very complicated stuff, but a good effort of the part of CCP designers.

Its the lighting in the game that does that. My alt looks the same as well when in shadows. As for the boob job not really noticed any difference there.
