I can't believe I forgot to mention this before. My birthday is this Sunday and I'm bringing my XBOX etc. to my parents house for the event.
To be honest, it's just gong to be my wife, kids, my parents and my brother plus his girlfriend.
Now, my brother has never had any exposure to Rock Band or anything like it. He's a musician too and plays mostly brass instruments (trumpet is his main axe), but he also plays guitar pretty well (much better than I play guitar).
So, I made characters for him and his GF. Now, I nailed him perfectly so he's nothing to worry about. However, I've come as close as I can to his girl friend and I'm thinking to myself "wow, is she going to be insulted by this toon!". I mean using the tools we have in the game, I've come close to what she looks like, but it's much more like one of those caricatures that artists make of celebrities that are less than flattering. I can't seem to tone it down so it's more real (like all my other avatars so far) and less "you have a pig nose and droopy eyes HAH!" dealies.
Should I just scrap her toon and let her use a generic? But if I do that she might feel I didn't think she was worth the time to craft a toon for her. Should I LIE and make her toon hawt?
