Woohooo!

Well I petitioned CCP about getting a second chance with the character customisation, and they came up trumps! (See my previous post).

So anyway, I've spent the last hour undoing all the work of Frankenstein, and have attempted to wind back time. The results - before, after, and after again - are here.

I am relieved, but part of me still yearns for a real time-machine so that I might go back and prevent my idiotic "tweaking" in the first place. The new me is virtually the same, yet unmistakably different. It's like comparing sunrise with sunset (is that too poetic?).

Anyway, please just don't tell me that I look worse. GM Nythanos gave me a stern warning that this was a "one-off", no more re-tries after this one.

So I offer you hope my disfigured friends, petition CCP now and get a chance to re-craft your beauty - but get it right, otherwise it will cost you real $$$ next time.

P.S. On reflection, the changes are so subtle as to be almost pointless. But human brains are somehow hard wired to pick up on the smallest changes in faces. In making my final changes, I was cutting and pasting into Photoshop - meticulously judging every detail. Yes I'm anal, but that's art.

If you successfully petition to do this, do you have to start from scratch or can you edit the existing avatar? All I want to do is move my eyes a little to counter a renderer screwup, and I'm having awful trouble recreating it accurately on an alt.

I think the new portrait is the best of the three. :)

The creator took me back to the body/face scultping page. I didn't dare try navigate anywhere else, for fear of losing everything. When re-doing the customisation, I started where I left off last time - same clothes and (awful) looks. I reckon you should be able to change the eyes.

I would get the petition in quick thou, not sure how much more patience CCP have for this.

Everyone will think it's fine now, despite that all you probably did was move a cheekbone a teeny bit and tone down the smile Razz

No one cares. Also, your avatar is still ugly.

Grats... its most important that you're happy with it... you're still not the **** type that gets put to the front of a club line but hey.

I 'm not sure about the haircut, but the face looks like you're a 33 year old attorney or newscaster, and mother of two young children. Hair-doo looks like a wig unforntunatley...the bottom part of the bob is ok but the bangs are too urban

A step forward into the right direction. Now make sure you step the remaining steps too... At the moment you look like you stopped using meth, but you're still in the trailer hun.

Your new face looks like a man in drag. Just sayin'.

The jaw is jagged and out a little too much, whereas in your first picture it's more rounded and soft. More feminine looking.

You shouldn't have tried so hard to fix/make a better face. Not trying is what results in more realistic faces, otherwise you focus and try to fix too many little things and it ruins it.

Edit: Also, the head looks larger.

It is always good to hear the news of another happy customer of CCP, but I have to be honest I like the first one better.

I wasn't aiming for sl*t, so that's a result...

Hair-doo looks like a wig.. umm, blame CCP.

33 year old newscaster... I refer you to this. I dare you to say no!

A very happy Flo, signing off. XOXO.
