First impressions test build

Finally got around to trying out the character creator by creating my go-to testing character: my favorite comic book character, Eddie Brock, a.k.a. Venom. I had a feeling I wouldn't be able to completely recreate Venom at this stage, so I settled for a full-body black spandex and exposed head approach.


(Moody backdrop is moody!)


(Don't mind the chest emblem. It's just a stand-in.)

Fiddling about with the anatomy sliders really brought to surface the current limitations and issues with the generator. Labeling on the sliders is tricky to fully grasp and clipping is a major issue, especially when fiddling with the head proportions. However, I was able to recreate a Mark Bagley-esque version of Eddie, so I'm pleased enough.


(This is what really sold me at this point.)


(Recreating Eddie's Fabio-haired look from the '90s)

One of the main issues I take with the creator at this stage is that it's very difficult to create a realistically skinny male model without ending up with a barrel-chested, beer-bellied freakazoid. I get that superheroes are meant to have...superheroic proportions, but you have obesity and age sliders, for cryin' out loud! Let me make a convincing bean-pole hero or villain.


(Bonus Bearded Eddie attempt to recreate his look in Donny Cates and Ryan Stegman's Venom series.

Overall, it's a noble first effort by Missing Worlds Media. I've been following their progress since I first pledged in their Kickstarter however many years ago that was. They'll get there eventually and I'll still be here when they arrive.
