Best Character Facial Model?
During Mass Effect, you spend alot of time talking to Aliens and people face to face, but who do you think has the best Face? Meaning which alein Race, or characters Facial Animation is the most Detail or the best looking. Mine has to be Grunt. I was really taken aback at how Detailed and great looking the Facial Animation was. My second favorite is probaly the Vorcha.
Yeah Grunt is really well done. There were several seperate occasions Grunt was animating on screen and I thought it was cutting to a pre-rendered cut scene. I think Legion was brilliantly done, it was all really subtle, but it was so amazing... I can't imagine trying to design a character without a face and a robot voice convey emotion. Really all of the characters were done really well.
Tali...lol kidding! I'd have to say Grunt or Garrus. When I think about it, all of the aliens on the team look freakin' cool. I can't choose. I just don't like the human faces. It's between Grunt, Garrus, Legion, and Tali just cause I can see her face a little better than in the last game, haha.
Also...never found Miranda's (or her voice actress) to be all that attractive.
" Kelly Chambers because she's cute as hell "Oh yes, this definitely.
Though I would also go with Legion and Jack. I think the facial animations with Jack are great. Her eyes and lips are perfect and when she looks at you and says "Fuck you Shepard" with a bit of a wry smile and smirk, its perfect. Really well done.
Legion on the other hand, is a great example of how they are able to portray character even though there really is no face. It was really good. Really good.
"Legion. And I can't even really explain why. "I think it may have something to do with the "eyebrows" he has. The way he expresses himself is more through head movement than anything else. The animation reminds me of a dog... the small twitches and movement. It is actually pretty cute. :/
"I think Zaeed looks the best. I like that his dead eye doesn't move when he looks around :p. His face and hair seems a lot more detailed than some of the other human characters. Better textures. "
Yeah I did notice he looked really good. I'd even argue he looks better than Shepard as far as realism goes.
The way they handled Legion was pretty awesome. The way his "wings" or "eyebrows" move on his head is all you need to see to know how he's reacting. The very first time you see him and he looks away from his scope, his fins pop up and you know he's like "Holy shit. Is that Shepard?"
"yeah samara's eyes especially i thought were really good. thane was also really well done
I thought Samara had a really well animated and crafted face. I also think Mordin really had some subtle animations that gave him a lot of character. Overall, except for maybe Miranda and Jacob, all the faces looked really good."
" Personally I think that Samara/Morinth were a cut above all the other Asari (including 'eyebrows' Liara), there was a lot of texture detail in her skin, made her far more real than most asari with their twi'lek smoothness. "Definitely, although I really liked Mordin's expressions as well. Seeing as though he wasn't really all that human looking, he had a lot of subtle movements that were just spot on.
