A Change Of Face?

        I know what you are all thinking, Kishin Hattori posting two times in two days; surely this is a thing of madness? Well if I'm brutally honest with you all fellow pod pilots, I've come down with a case of the vanity blues. After staring at my mug for so long, I feel like a bit of a change (and by a bit, I really do mean a bit.)

        So here I present to you my current incarnation...

        And my potential new self...

        If anyone could give their opinion on the potential new look I would be much obliged. Is it also strange that despite my profession as a part of the collective pirate scourge that plagues New Eden I want Kishin to look really friendly? Answers on a postcard please. A comment will also suffice!


  1. You are going for "friendly" and I went for "ugly as hell."

    Maybe change the lighting a bit on the new picture, the skin looks pasty and sweaty, unless that's the look you are going for! Eye position and the slightly raised chin in the new picture gives a more direct look, while in the old one it gives more of a demure, or even avoidance of eye contact, like looking away from someone talking to you.

    Overall it looks good, just depends on what you are trying to convey!

  2. Personally, I think that having that mask on makes it impossible to look friendly...

  3. The new one looks more sly, but does look a little pale. If it makes you happy, then go for it, but I've heard a lot of people complaining about how long it takes for a portrait change to finally go through.

    And who says pirates aren't nice guys? Arrhidaeus has a green halo and golden light cascading on his serene, gentle face, and the only trace of any kind of "meanness" comes from his subtle, unshaven stuble. Maybe it'll make people pay my ransoms more, who knows?
