character creation Create a character to a photo template

5 posts in this topic


I had a hard time recreating the look of my girl friend with the character editor - mostly due to my limited artistic abilitites I fear.

So I wrote a small tool that allows you to overlay the editor (in windows mode) with a semi transparent photo, while still enabling the mouse to use the character editor - the overlaying image can be toggled transparent to your mouse.

I blogged about it here, you find the download at the end of the blog. Its an exe file, so Windows will warn you - I give a couple of tips to mitigate that risk - or if you want to be on the ultimatively safe side, go to Github and compile it on your own...

Helped me a lot - just still struggeling with the predefined face forms, they need to be a bit more flexible...

the problem is, that you cannot recreate celebrities with any template. you gotta figure out which one fits best. It is mostly dependend on skin structure base makeup of eyes, nose, lips and so on. each class has a different template with different skin/face structures. even with identical face bones, the person will probably look totally different with the wrong basic template.

thats why I don't do this anymore.


edit:  oh and this program works, just a bit complicated ..

1. you need a perfect front portrait photo without a huge smile

2. you gotta fix the angle by rotating

3. its easier to use a photo on a second screen than having a 50% or less visibility layer ontop of your character creation.

4. you also need a decent side-profile, and not just the face from the front.


do you already have some references what u did with the program?
