New Shinies

  First off let me say that the new character creator was a bit underwhelming.  It seems as if each race has a general face that can be tweaked but still resembles all the other Gallente or Caldari or whatever race your character is.  The woeful lack of clothing choices was also pretty annoying.  So with the bitching portion out of the way;  it is nice to get a chance to re-imagine my characters, especially since they are getting pretty old these days.  I assume the items that were missing from this round will be things that we can pickup in Incarna, and I am okay with that.  Let's just hope we aren't all stuck wearing the same 7 outfits forever...

  Now to jump in with today's meme of showing off our new selves.  I must say I'm not sure yet if I love my work but I certainly like it better than the stupid models of Character Creator 1.0!

Meatay (my main) has always been a bit of a plain fellow.  I took this opportunity to continue that theme.  It's been many years since this guy first ventured out into the universe and I think his new look shows that he has weathered some storms, learned quite a bit, and hardened up a little.

Meatay Pickle has always been my favorite character for some reason.  I had always wanted his look to represent the difficulties of life as a mining foreman by exuding a simple toughness.  He's a bigger type of guy, a bit solitary but too much time sitting alone in his Rorqual may have caused him to go insane.

This is my capital ship (and battleship) expert.  I never really liked his original look but I thought he should keep some aspects of it.  I wanted him to convey a very weathered but highly trained para-military pilot who has the calm lethality needed to effectively fly some of the biggest ships in the universe.  It looks a little too much like Sam Worthington but still I like the new look.

Last but not lease my frigate expert (Meatay Speeday).  This one obviously has some issues.  I'm not sure if they came from spending so much time roaming space alone in tiny ships or caused him to do that.  I also think the radiation from cloaking for hours on end may have fried his brain.
