Ok, let me show you my awes-



Oh, that's right, I forgot the day 1 patch is taking FUCKING AGES to download. I've never had speeds this bad from PSN before. But of course their servers had to shit themselves today. Sigh.

(I know I could start the game without the patch. But I don't want to, considering what it adds.)
Took me an hour and a half. I was anxious as all hell.

The face textures are a bit disappointing when you get close up. When it gets smeared with blood it's even worse unfortunately, looks really last gen. Still, char gen in this game is leaps above the previous.

Don't worry, I'll vouch for them.

Messed around a bit trying to make Sean Connery as Ramirez from Highlander...will post pictures later.

But I will probably let my wife make herself and play as her.

Character creation should be the last thing tempting me to get another Souls game, but it is. It's my one major weakness.

What's with the necks though?

If it weren't for the save function, I wouldn't bother spending much time with the CC. I was surprised by how my character turned out visually. It's only slightly more robust than the last gen DS games, but a few small tweaks to a good preset face can get you something pretty nice.

Only real complaint I have is that all the body types are identical. You go from sickly to slightly less sickly to rail thin to thin to slender at the most robust. I miss being able to make my character a mountain of meat.

Not entirely happy with the result but I was getting tired last night and just went with 'good enough.'



Nose looks weirder in game than it did in the creator for whatever reason, although it's nowhere near the extent of Mass Effect where you make a reasonable looking female Shepard and then start the game only to be greeted by pure horror.

I did notice, and appreciate that it's much easier to make an Asian character in this game that doesn't look horrible. Maybe it's just that I can't remember the last Japanese game I played with a character creator...

It's fun to have some representation.

Too lazy to grab the picture directly, so I'm just grabbing what I uploaded to Facebook.

In the character creator:


Right before I finalized contract:
I changed a little bit in the sliders but not too much. Pretty great character creator. Loving a lot of the Hunters here.

I came to see how many Alucards there would be. At two, I'm unimpressed thus far ;p

The char gen & creation looks much better than it was in the previous games, though.

The characters in these games have never looked very good. The shots in this thread make it look a lot worse (despite some of them looking very good, too)

These character models look pretty great, though I hope there's some more variety to the clothing/armor as you progress through the game. All the clothing so far looks like it was designed for male characters.

Y'all are so creative. I just chose a preset and then picked similar face after similar face to get here:
Best one in the thread by far. The majority look way out of place; there's a jarring divide between the level of detail in the faces and everything else. Yours and drahcir's just seem to jive better with everything else.

@drahcir Post in-world shots, please!

No half-naked femmevatars for you!

Seems I wasn't the only one who thought, "hey create an old man."

Also thanks From for including basically my hair in the game. It's much appreciated!
