Black eyes?Follow

My character (the big hyur type), has really dark eye sockets like he has a ton of eyeliner on or has two black eyes. It didn't really appear that way during character creation. I'm kind of dissapointed with the look, but am reluctant to start over (even though I'm only a few hours into it).

Has anyone else noticed this issue? Even if I rebuilt my character I'm not sure which feature changes would fix this problem.

Also, if I delete him, then rebuild him - will it let me pick the same name or will the system think that the name is already taken? In other words when you delete a character does it immediately free up that name for me to re-obtain?

Thanks

Highlander with a beard, right?

Same boat, although I kinda like the dark set back eyes. I went for a kind of northern tribal shaman look for my THM and it impoves the look \o/

Yep lol.

At times I kind of like the look - as he has that sort of pirate Jack Sparrow look. But when I put the onion helm on it looks bad like he's pale and sick. I'm worried that I'll pretty much always have some sort of hat on and he will look ridiculous. MAybe it will grow on me. I did notice that in well lit areas (like daytime outside) it seem to go away significantly.

Then don't do that. ;)

May have just been due to lighting differences between the game and the creator, especially if you never turned him around in the creator (camera controls). You may very well get used to it, though if it bugs you it may come down to tweaking him. But, at least generally you'd look at him from the back so might not be that big of a deal. :)

My lalafell looks ghostly pale half the time, i just noticed it to after putting like 6 hours into it. Im thinking about deleting and starting over just to give my char a tan. :)

Not sure if its worth it though/

If you really don't like it,id start over with something you do like.I know it sucks to start over but only a few hours in ain't that bad.And if your anything like me you'll be playing this game a long time,might as well make sure you like the looks of your character.

That's what I'm concerned about. I don't want to do it over only to discover that every highlander has the deep/dark eye sockets and I wasted my time and risked not getting my character name back.

I'll probably let it grow on me. I'll see how I feel about it when I get home today and get another look at him after being away from the game for 20 hours.
