This thing is awful at making Asians.

Yeah really, there is no option for making the skin school-bus yellow.


Seriously though, I suppose that is a good reflection on manga art. I mean, despite the fact that the artists are mostly Asian and the characters are all from Tokyo or Hong Kong or something, the characters rarely look Asian.
That's just because you live in a white society. Actual white characters in manga are differentiated from the standard Japanese character.

At the same time, though, this is an avatar maker, not a manga creator, so the avatar features should be flexible enough to produce an avatar that can be readily identified as whoever it represents.

Well I said "not Asian," not "white." And considering the url is faceyourmanga.com, I think it's pretty safe to say this is in fact a manga creator.

That's a good article though, thanks for the link. I've never actually paid too much attention to what ethnicity the characters look like (I started reading comics when living in Korea, so that fits what the article is arguing,) I was just agreeing with your statement.

I'm not accusing you of anything, it's just that your comment echoed a common sentiment, sorry.

I would argue that it's aping the manga style, namely, big eyes and flat faces, rather than actually creating manga.

I misread the title as 'themed pace maker', and I thought this topic was gonna be instant win.

That would be a pretty great thread. I wonder if you could request a custom-made pacemaker?

Anybody wanna go into business with me on this?

We'll need a surgeon, and pace-maker (uh) maker. I'll deal with the press outrage.

My Mii looks a lot like me, but I have trouble with these things, too.

Loxley took one look at my Mii and said...way to be LUNCHY.

I was like...oh.  you're pretty much right.

I'm a medic. That's close enough to a surgeon, right?

I want my pacemaker to replicate Steve Reich's seminal work Drumming. I'm sure your business would be able to cater to me.

Drumming is about the most fantastic piece of percussion that I have ever heard. 

I'm going to listen to it now.

I think I'd like mine to replicate Aphex Twin, most any song from Richard D. James Album on.

Only drawback is that my heart might just explode after long enough.

Mine's gonna have to be venetian snares..Or possibly some speedcore.

It'll be fun until you die.

What do you need snares for, if you can have chrome plated valves?

I like "Come out," his piano phase-shifting piece, and, of course, "Music for 18 Musicians" better.
