I've restared like 10 times now. Basically female shepard + Vanguard is fun ...default Male soldier shepard is monotone and provides boring gameplay

...but fuck it's impossible to make a decent looking lady. Sucks too as I want this to be my carry over character for ME2 =(

I made quite a nice looking lady for Mass Effect myself. I think the key was going with the blonde, short hair. Most of the hair variations in the game look like crap.

PS - Get a better nose. She looks like she's been snorting coke for 20 years.

I disagree. Making a good looking custom male Shepard is impossible while it's pretty achievable for the female Shepard.

I made an Audrey Tautou lookalike that came out pretty decent.

It took ages though. And the neck is turned out too skinny. Oh well, I hope ME2 lets us marginally edit characters before embarking on the character transfer.

I thought it was pretty easy. My only real complaint was that the women don't get any bitchin' scars like the guys do.

If you want a game where it's impossible to make your character look like a mutant try playing Oblivion...

Mine was alright. She had a tiny scar on her left (or right?) eyebrow, product of a drunken fight.

Edit: Typo. My Shepard wasn't that ugly. :P

I've got no picture to show but I found African skin colour to be the most realistic. They've got the shine down just like real skin with that colour.

I've got a male, medium brown skin, bright yellow brushcut (dye job) and those striking blue eyes. He's totally mixed, a man from the future.

Female Shepards are easy to make after some trial and error. Duck lips and bad hair are the hard parts.

Wow, I had no idea it was possible to make a good looking female Shepard. Now I wish I could start over but I already spent too many hours on my current game (which I haven't touched in a year or so).

Maybe one day I'll get around to finishing this game, and start a second character. Maybe.

When I lost my Mass Effect save which I spent countless hours on what botherd me most was loseing my custom female character which I thought came out looking way better than the defaults. She seemed so perfect.

This is the only thing that bugged me about Mass Effect. Making a decent looking character. Even the default one, his lips just bug me so much. They are so huge and flappy.

It took me several tries to turn out a decent looking character. I don't know why but every white person I made ended up looking horrible, but the first black person I made turned out to look awsome.

It's probably best to go to the ME forums and search for some sort of predesigned faces. It would probably be a lot faster if you do that rather than making 8 faces until you find one that works.

ME makes it really, really difficult to make an attractive character.

"Difficult", however, is still easier than Bethesda's "Impossible".

I got the same vibe when creating a custom face that I got when playing Star Wars Galaxies or Fallout/Elder Scrolls...that all humans have to look disgusting.

I felt like Bioware was keeping the secret to creating beautiful people from me. The default male Shepard looks like a model, with his dreamy eyes and all.
