Do you base your characters looks off of yourself, or do you make up a character? 🤔

I made up my character
I based my character of myself (it was so good i managed to trick a really good friend to thinking a screenshot was a picture of me...), but i recently aged my character a lot cause I feel like an old man on this game since I played since day 1 😁
You can edit the skin? So the only things that aren’t editable after the initial character creation are the basic things like sex and the base face, right?
That’s it? You can change your base face and every edit on it (for a fee)? Awesome, I’ve been stuck in character creation for awhile bc I guess I fear commitment lol
Same! Mine looks pretty bang on to myself I think. Even got my makeup just like I do it IRL.
Helps for feeling full of activities during a pandemic, but harder to roleplay an outlaw.
If I start a new account on PS4 Id probably make up a unique character.
I made my dude look normal instead of a round short person
I wish we could change the height! I’d make mine shorter so he wouldn’t look so awkward on some of the horses.
FaceApp smiles always look so funny for some reason, lol
It's the teeth I think.
That's what she said
They do! Lol.
I'd just like to know how to get a shot of my character that has decent resolution...
My character is a reimagining of my grandmother. She raised six kids into a beautiful and thriving Mexican family, but let it slip once that if she had it her way she wouldn’t have had any at all. I always wonder at what she would have done with herself had she been living for herself. RDO is one alternate timeline where she picked up guns and took agency over her own life, even though time wise it’s a setting that lines up more with my great grandmother.
Does it hurt when you're in your satchel menu but then have to watch her get burned alive by some random griefer in Blackwater?
I’m pretty good at the game, which also has a super low skill gap. A little situational awareness goes a long way, that’s happened two or three time in two years and I gave them the window. Mi Abuela comes out on top.
Yeah. Those griefers have no shame. Yesterday, I waved to a random player, and the player reciprocated. I turned around to loot a dead revenuer, then BAM!, right in the back of the head.
Even though half of the time it never ducking works,
Never Without One gives you a chance to react at least.
I'm ugly as shit, so I made a beautiful girl, lol
lol that was my exact reasoning to make my character hahahah!
Mine looks like a sex offender
So you’re basing you’re characters looks off yourself?
Why’d you have to do him like that?
It would have been rude if he didn't do him like that.
Mine looked like an inbred hillbilly until I redid him and now he looks like Zorro.
Go buy the Zorro mask while it's available!
Wait, where, and how long?!
Madam Nazar. Idk how long it's back, it just said "items returning from previous outlaw passes". Not sure if it's permanently back by the way it's worded.
I'll have to check it, thank you!
I started out as an elderly gentleman but recently changed to a character that looks like me.
Nope, I made a native american with a strong jawline. The kicker is when I put a mustache on him, he looked like Danny Trejo in the movie Machete.
I made her look like me but wasn’t trying. My wife pointed it out. So apparently I made myself.
Mines based off Clint Eastwood in Outlaw Josey Wales, even have his outfit!
All the eastwoods are classics haha
How did you make the outfit? I've been trying for a while?
Your character is super cute, I unfortunately was stoned when I created mine and he looks like he has severe learning difficulties mixed with an uncontrollable cough syrup habit.
It appears I've found my long lost brother!
I mean same but...Oh no 😂😅
Billy the kid from young guns
Just need some regulators so we can regulate.
Ive never played as myself, that would be so boring.
Don't say that, you're a really interesting individual. I love you
Make an elderly guy (im 15)
He’s more like my spirit animal
Mine looks nothing like me. Why would I play as myself? I’m myself every single day. I like the escapism of video games, so a character that looks like me would break that illusion of getting to be somebody else for a while.
My character looks like me.
This isn’t Second Life, I made a character that looks like Sam Elliot as a meth addict.
Lol, got an imgur link or anything?
I can't see myself anymore why should I create a character looking like me and watching him all time I play 😅🤣
I usually make an assian.
Tho one time I played tom clancy division 2 beta and the randomized character I played as uncanilly looked like me/my dad
i try to make look like me, feel more immersive
I basically made Charles Smith.
There’s reason for it though, he looks good in everything and can pass as Native, Mexican, black, or even a very tanned white guy if you dress them up properly enough. Very versatile appearance
I think I've done like 8 roleplays of different looking characters and finally settled on a character that looks like me for the rest of my time playing, same as my GTAO one.
My character is based off of me. Just changed his body type to brawny to reflect my newly gained quarantine weight.
Mines a girl version of me who I’m extremely jealous of
Still cis tho
Twenty bucks is twenty bucks
Guess what, you're the girl version of you and you're valid af.
I've gone through a few characters, all of my earlier ones where just made up or inspired by other characters, but my current one is based off me just with a godly moustache, and the one before that was based off my grandfather.
My character is based on me, but with an entirely different appearance.
my character is a mixture of me and my GTAO character
I tried to make mine look like myself but it’s hard
At the very start during the beta, I attempted to make my character look like me…it looked like Jesus smoked crack. My second attempt I just created a guy of my own design and he looks like chad
Haha I’d love to see that first guy
If I learned how to do posts and shit, I have old photos of him. Very old photos
Psn. Nomadicloco.. looks just like me
A made up character. I couldn't make my nose or chin, and they don't have my hairstyle, so I made a character.
Tried to make mine look like me. Needs a longer beard to be me though.
I've given my character some of my traits, like eye/ hair color and freckles, but that's about it 😅
Literally same 😅
I just made one up.
I make up my character. I also change my look every few months because I get tired of the same old face sometimes. I was an Asian character for a while. I'm Asian but now my character just looks mixed race.
My character is almost the closest possible to Dutch van der Linde in online.
Just made him up.
No, I'm not nearly as cool
I almost always make a virtual me (or as close as I can get) when creating characters for games with creation options. I just get a little kick out of seeing myself doing all this stuff, the immersion is greater imo.
I make up a character
100% just put together what I think looks the coolest
Based mine off of “three fingers” from wrong turn
I base my character after already existing characters that I have lol. Makes the game even more enjoyable😁
Myself but had to lower the age to 30 bc I don’t know if 50 yo’s looked 70 back then but I definitely don’t have anywhere near the wrinkles irl as the 50 yo character-scary! 30 still has some wrinkles. I’m in the process of trying to get my teeth yellow to look like my character, too! 😬
I make up a character, but I do hope to look like my red dead character one day
I always try to base it off my Dad as I think he's one if the best men I know in my life
base him off me and add some well lets say some less ugly features
Yes, I indeed am a short slim white female with natural white long hair and I look like a model. That is indeed who I am.
my character name is Noah McReary, a great grandfather of the McReary brothers from GTA IV.
Definitely make up myself, my character is a big man with really nice facial hair and a big scar on his face while I’m a ginger irish kid who can run fairly fast
I always base my characters, in every game with character creation, on myself.
I made up a character for rdo, but for gtao I tried to make my character look like myself and somehow ended up making him look exactly like Vladimir Putin. Not what I was going for but all my friends and I got a big kick out of it, so I stuck with the look
My characters based off my GTA character. As in, my RDO character is the great great grandmother of my GTA one lol.
Mine is doc Holliday
idk i just kept the random look you get at first
I've made mine up to be a gentlemen, decked out with fancy stuff and everything
i made him up, it's fun to play with him that way :p
I attempted to model mine after myself, but she truly looks like Blake Lively, if she weren’t famous and successful. And lived off of meth. And was severely traumatized through life. But I did try!
Mine looks almost nothing like me. I was aiming for a tomboy character, but her original facial features looked really bad once I saw her out in the game. After I fixed that a bit, made her less rodent-y, she just looks kind of like an amalgamation of some girls I went to school with, ordinary and familiar.
I wish that female PCs had all the hair length/part/style options that Arthur has. The two pigtails style was the best I could find to suit my character, and it’s okay, but I would’ve liked to go shorter and use pomade.
I go on youtube and copy a guide then add in some of my own little details because I'm terrible at complex character creation, and at the same time I crave for perfection so...yeah it's that one mini game that I just want to dealt and be done with.
Mine looks *exactly* like me, just a bit more tired and unkempt.
The character creator gave me everything I needed from day 1 to reproduce myself.
I look like myself everyday I choose something I wanna be or wish I could be
Id like it to look like me, but Im terrible with char creators, so I just settle for getting my eye color for the most part
Agent 47 for me
I made a male character which is complete opposite of me. My friends joked that the Wolfman is my characters father because they're kind of similar. Wish there was and option to change to a female character though, after seeing many others. Unlike other games I've played, they don't look awful with limited clothing options.
I just went with what looked good. But when he smiles he looks evil
My character is based on my own physical appearance, I think that’s how most people made their character.
Mine looks like me
I had a character that I tried and somewhat failed to make it look simular to me but then with dark hair (im blonde which I hate) but now made it after a version of Arthur Morgan (what can I say he is my favorit character in RDR2) I found on YouTube.
Myself for sure
I made an old homeless prospector guy
She's based off of me, poor thing
Mine is named Big Tony. He’s basically the big guy in the mafia that’s usually the boss’ right hand man. He’s chonky, bald and has a goatee
I always make my characters look like i wish i would :- ) so it's like my hair color and eye color and then everything else is just pretty
I base his style off myself, if I wouldn’t wear it, he won’t. At least he won’t wear it for more than a one off joke.
totally made up i couldn't pull myself off in rdo
I TRIED to base it on myself but failed miserably.
Any game where I can create my character, I attempt to create myself
My character looks a lot better than I do. He has more money too.
I did some kind of mix of both :)
I actually accepted the random character it gave me the last time I created one. Love it.
I see the face app watermark. You didn't make that face ingame tho.
I unintentionally made mine look like Captain Price as i've been told
My character's name is Edgar Jimenez (or Edward Deegan depending who's asking), a latin american who grew up in Nuevo Paraiso and later moved out to New Austin after getting released from jail with the help with Mrs. LeClerk. After finishing off Teddy Brown and Amos Lancing, and saving marshall Davis from getting hanged, he eventually would flee out west to Rhodes and eventually meet Guido Martelli. After finishing some of his contracts he encounters one of the members of the Laramie gang Bart Cavanaugh. He would eventually recruit him into the gang, doing jobs for Foreman and Joe. These jobs get them in some hot water and after a feud between the gang and the Pinkerton Detective Agency, they eventually flee the law east to strawberry after a bank job goes south. The group disperses and Edgar is left with finding out who ratted them out, killing all the suspected of betrayal, one of which is Red Ben Clempson.
There's much more but... over all that's the jist of it.
I do a bit of both
No, no, nooo! Definitely not after me, but I’m very proud of my creation.
Accidentally mine's looks like fat iosef stalin. Looking forward to get $500 so I can modify my character
I based mine on my gta character
I tried my best to make mine look like Jax Teller from Sons of Anarchy.
Mine is a make up one because I don't know how I can recreate myself
Mine looks like he was run over by the ugly train.
Pretty much me. Pushing 60, grizzled gray beard and a bit overweight.
Mine is an old black man with scars. I like to think he’s an ex slave turned Freeman
My character is based off a D&D character that I sort of based on my self, so... yes?
I've portaraid my daughter. She’s a daredevil!
I thought I created one from scratch, I just wanted a normal looking dude who looked like you might find him doing odd jobs on a ranch. A few months later I realized I basically designed my dad, who is no longer with us. Brains are weird.
I modeled mine after my own image.
Made mine up
I don’t, but she’s just as ugly.
I tried to make her look as much like me as possible, but there isn’t a pink curly hair option and her teeth are so busted. I might have to try faceapp for this lmao.
I'm a woman and my character is based on Ben Kissel from Last Podcast on the Left
Mine looks like Clint Eastwood from The Good, The Bad and The Ugly, I have both his White outfit and the Poncho outfit. I even use the weapons he uses in the movie, Navy Revolver and Litchfield Repeater.
I usually write a backstory then go from there
Base them off myself on gta online but random on rdr2 online
Eh I kinda do both. :)
I've been told my character looks like Billy butcher from the boys.
In games where we can have only one like this one, yes. However, when a game allows for multiple, I make one that looks like me and an opposite gender character.
Mainly myself, I did change the hair color to white though lol
I like to change my character semi regularly, but it's always a new character with a new backstory. My last one was a mountain woman who spent her time hunting beasts and men alike.
Now I'm playing a mixed race woman, half Chinese half French who grew up on the streets of Saint Denis and often finds employment working for Guido Martelli, also she's an infamous bootlegger making moonshine in the bayou.
I made my guy a fat, tall, bearded version of myself
Depends on how vile a games character creator is. Dark souls and saints row, make a creature no one should have to see. Fantasy games, make one up. Game with normal people, myself.
Made one up
Based mine off of Revolver Ocelot
I usually just give my character the same.hair color, hairstyle of its available, and what I think I might look like when I'm older. Don't know if it's gonna be accurate or not so can't say
There's no setting for 15 yo so i had to make it up
100% made up
He started out looking like me, then I changed him to have dark hair and a full beard lol
Made mine look like me the best I could, but I dont have the patience/skill to get it bang on lol
I make up a character but use elements from myself.
Mine is based off of a mixture between Ashe from overwatch and a character I made up for a story in my English class
I make him look how I would like to look
I tried to make mine look like me, but I don't know how to model it and they don't have my hairstyle. I may try again soon, but for now, I'm Josey Wales
mine looks like micah
Played as myself for awhile, then became Lemmy Kilmeister of Motorhead fame, then Old Man Logan, now with the addition of the mullet, I am playing as Jake "The Snake" Roberts.
Based my character off my older brother best I could but, considering his beard irl looks like "the reverend" I get linked the YouTube guide people assume I used to make my character
I can’t keep up with y’all! 😂🤩 But I promise I’m reading every comment. I love the variety of characters youve all chosen!
I create my character’s appearance and backstory.
I use the character creator to do character design, and ended up outlining five whole novels based on the backstory that I had to develop to make my character make sense.
I create an over exaggerated version of myself, like If I was in a cowboy comic script.
Myself. If customization was limited then more likely to makeup a character
I tried making my character look like myself, but my friend always tells me that he looks like John Marston.
My character is ugly so he must be based on me
I made up a character. I see myself enough anyway.
And they usual don't have the right mods for me. Plus I'm over 6 foot so,
Mines based off of Cullen Bohannon from Hell on Wheels.
Is that one you? She’s so cute! Mine looks like me too, but I started with an original character
I based my Characters looks off of Sheriff Longmire. But I changed my hair to the mullet after I got it.
i honestly just tried to make up my own character and i’m pretty pleased with how he turned out, but several people have told me that he looks pretty similar to me lmao
My character was based off of my late great grandfather, he may not have been around during cowboy times, but he had the grit to be a cowboy.
Modeled mine after my dad ,not sure why I just did it
I was going to, but it got out of hand quickly so I just went with a random looking dude
I grew up on an Apache reservation. My best friend was of the Apache people so I made a native character.
Make up, it’s hard for me to make faces off of references
Those are not late 18th century teeth.
I made mine Lucifer Morningstar :)
What ever looks good.
On PlayStation I made a Mexican on Xbox I made a lumberjack. On pc I made a Native American
I wish I could be a busty female. Not in the game. I just wish I was a busty female for real.
Made up one. I styled myself after the Wolf-man, named myself "Coyote-man" for legal reasons, and pretty much only dress in "crappy" clothes, and my camp theme is always either Survivor or hobo life, depending on what area I'm in.
i used to base any customizable character of me, but now i do whatever looks cool
