Forever trying to make a character that looks exactly like me. Shame I'm not too good.

Anybody else do this?
If so, please share!
I wanna see how good at it you all are. :P

I would if I didn't hate male human armors, for the most part at least. Now I'm just a chick with light blue hair. But you should get the glasses from the AH as well haha.

I tried to, but all of the human males make you look like a model instead of an average Joe haha. Anyway, this was the closest I could get to with my thief:

I try to do this in games for my main character with varying degrees of success, but my face is more of an average Joe and not the underwear model material required for GW2 :lol:  I didn't even get close - hell, the character creator doesn't even have dark brown eyes!

I think the closest I've ever got was in Dragon Age Origins.

I think this is possible only in either Oblivion(with some mods if you have a beard) or Aion. I remember hearing that some bloke spent 4+ hours creating a character that looks just Like him. The same should be possible in Oblivion.

And to answer the question: No, I do not do this. It seems silly to me seeing how I make up a personality for my character-I Might as well make him look Like HE(and not ME) is supposed to look Like. That's just my opinion on it...

thats right, some guy did obama in oblivion and skyrim. Vote Obama for Emperor!
I think it is very difficult to do on gw2 as it has limited sliders compared to oblivion or skyrim. But it may be possible

It is way harder to actually customise your character in Skyrim than it was in Oblivion.

Think Like this: In terms of customisation, Skyrim is to Oblivion what Guild Wars 2 is to Aion(same customisation engine/process but more limited).

About Obama: he eventually ended in Gamer Poop Oblivion. LoL worthy vid!

I made my Elementalist a bit like me irl. He's based on a cartoon character I designed, that shares my looks. Like the guy in my avatar, blonde, kinda messy hair.xD

From what I remember Aqualonian, Kadjit and Orcs (if I got the names right) all had human bodies with different colors, making them look rather terrible. Coming to think of it, Oblivion's characters were rather terrible in general (though admittedly there were tons of customization options), I liked that you could tell how a character was feeling from its expression but the expressions themselves looked really goofy.

I try to make it look similar as far as facial hair/hair style, but I don't go in depth like cheek bone density and things of that nature, but I'm just not patient enough to go THAT in detail on my character since you mostly see them from the back. Major credit to those who do though :D

Since I like to gender bend when I play (just a personal aesthetic preference), I actually like to model my character off my significant other...kinda fun to see them running around in-game!

While the world tries to make characters to look like them,
I try to make myself look like my characters :D

Well, at least I wish I could :3
