I've done my best with the current limited options of sculpting, be that limited in the broader scope of things like total skull width, ear height, eye size, full color selection of hair etc etc..
That said, why can't I use a full color selection like the one used in the Black Prophecy character creation? If I want bright neon purple hair I should be able to do that Sad

Anyways, all in all I think I've managed to make a decent portrait of dear old Bruce AKA Captain and Commander John Sheridan.
Bruce Boxleitner as Captain and Commander John Sheridan
Jerry Doyle as Michael Garibaldi (yes, I'm fully aware Jerry Doyle has blue eyes...made a small mistake, sorry Neutral)
Patricia Tallman as Lyta Alexander
Andreas Katsulas as himself as G'Khar
Ed Wasser as Mr. Morden!

I made a pretty damned good Tommy Lee Jones. Will have the screenshot it again and post.

Wow.....it looks almost exactly like him. Even the hair is pretty much the same. Good job, very nice sculpting work. I wonder if he'd be interested in seeing it.

The eyes are to big. the nose is to sharp and does not have enough lead in on the cheeks. And the Jaw line it totally off.
It does not look like him to me. But to the op. Still a damn good attempt and awesome sculpt.

You didn't get the 'Not this again' expression right.

I LOL'ed. More thinking about his face than the post itself, but still...

(Well tbh he DOES get quite a lot of flying crap thrown at him :P)

Edit: just to be on topic... While trying the first iteration of the CC (so that's some 2 versions ago?), I tried remaking my character... Then happened upon a certain hairstyle that screamed OLMOS AS ADAMA. And here's what happened:
clicky

I didn't have a photo nearby, just went from memory and the CC was still in the early phases... Still it seems quite close :P

How close can you get to your movie/series hero?


Wow! Very good! But... if I may? I think he would look even more like Bruce if he was a less "wide" over the face, plus maybe make his face a lil longer? and you would have a pure clone!

Well as i stated in my original post;

Quote:

If i had those options i could have put his ears a bit higher, smashed his skull inwards just a tiny bit and lessened the bambi eyes. I could have photoshopped it but mehh, it's what's possible that counts.

Anyways, how close can you go?

You ran into the same limitations. Adama's head is shorter, wider and more angular (is that even a word?) but given your options it's not bad.

Yeah, i've tried fidling with that one for a while but the only way lips go is up or down...not 100% sideways in a "can't i just get a break every now and then" kind of fashion...

I see we have a person here that's missed Bruce's top performances in one of the most awarded and followed sci-fi 5 year running show... Babylon 5 is where it's at man! Tron was good but not enough hours of Bruce! And almost everyone else on B-5. Shame i won't be able to make kosh and go around local making no sense whatsoever Evil or Very Mad

And sounding cool while doing it!

Anyway... Yeah the CC isn't perfect ofc, but I also didn't put much effort into it, like I said I didn't even have a reference photo, just went from memory.

Well you can do expressions in the portrait pose part of the creation process. The creator itself is generic.

Yes, I was indeed refering to the pose portrait. It's only drag up for smile or down for disappoint/sad.

Anyways: Jerry Doyle as Garibaldi comes second!

It's again not the best alike but after toying with it for long enough I think it's as close as I can get it. And no I couldn't get the lips any smaller...that would have indeed made it alot better.

EDIT: Hmm I just noticed I forgot to put his left eyebrow down a bit....Ohh well, you'll get the gist of it Razz

Based on the source pic, your lips are a bit too thin, especially the lower lip

Well that's a little bit of trickery. They arn't actually too thin, they're too wide by which they look too thin. Garibaldi ALWAYS has that expression where he touts his lips a little bit just like he's about to kiss someone, but then decides to try and swallow what little lip he has left..

Offtopic: is there any way to share/import actual character designs? I'll be honest, and say that I dont really feel like re-sculpting my avatar (apart from hitting radnom a few times), but from a well-made base (meaning other players), I'd actually spend some time customizing it.

Meester Garibaldi! Very Happy

I'd love if someone could make something close to Londo in appearance. The character creation could always do with more exotic hairstyles.

good stuff, I always thought my current avatar looked a little like Nicole Kidman...I can't wait to try it out and see how much closer I can get it. But that won't be the final one I go with, not much of a fan.
