Female Man Faces?

#1 Edited by Beaudacious (927 posts) -

I just can't help but feel like every female character in MK9 has a man's face. I think its the lower jaw line that's throwing me off. The female bodies are ok, but as soon as something zoom's in on a female characters face it gets narly dude.
 
Has anyone else noticed this, or am i simply in need of glasses. Or maybe its the AA that making their Jaw Lines look so masculine. Ah who am i kidding Sonia Blade has been juicing since MK Vs. DC.

Typo? :P 
 
I wasn't a fan of Kitana's face, prefer her with the mask.

Mostly sonya, I mean what happened to her? Doesn't even look like her with that man jaw.
 
I mean even morgan webb is like...damn.

yeah I think it's just Sonya that pissed Jax off one day and got the Jax Clap.

None of them struck me as being overly weird. Maybe I just hangout with a bunch of manly women...

Thats why hey all where masks! yah I kind of noticed, it's a problem with the gritty "realistic" art style.

Kitana is the one that drives me nuts.  Her costume 2 totally looks like a dude in the face.

Kitana's face looks plain awful.
The rest are not that bad.

They aren't the most pretty faces, but they aren't that bad... they still look tons better than a lot real life faces lol

if you look at the characters faces in the second half(ish) part of the story mode, anyone who looks at Kitana is saying in their head "put your mask back on"

I guess that's why they have ginormous tits.  "Hey, no really, these are the females, we swear!"

Did you see the header for Starcraft 2 on the homepage here? Now that's a man face.

For women who spend most of their time being punched and murdered for eternity I think you're expecting (and getting) a hell of a lot.

Sonya's face just looks like the actress who played Sarah Connor in Terminator 1 and 2, so I'm fine with her face. 
But I WAS a little... put off by Kitana's face.  At certain angles it looks fine, but sometimes it just looks odd.

Glad I'm not the only one who wants to put a bag over Sonya's head.

Female man feces?

I'm too busy punching them to notice or care.

The MK team seems to struggle with female faces. Go look at Wonder Woman in MKvDCU. Her face is terrible. The PS2 era games' female faces were excusable, but only because you could hardly make them out with that technology.

Yea, Mileena looks like Baracka.

I didn't really notice it, but I don't spend my time staring at the female characters either.
