The commander smiling by Geirahod The commander smiling by Geirahod
My actual femshep, Umi Shepard, earthborn, ruthless.
She's an engineer (I know very weird for someone with a bad past), full renegade...she enjoy being mean and rude to other people.

I don't know why I'm uploading this...but what the hell not?...she's only nice with Tali and Garrus (because they're her friends), I renegade Garrus and Kaidan on ME1 :B! it was fun but don't kill me XD!.

My first "acceptable" asian character...I think she looks pretty good but I still want another result. XD!
I'm going to finish ME2 with her, and then I'll play ME again with a pretty paragon asian girl...:D!

now is edited on photoshop, some kind of wallpaper of her XD!

I disagree with above comment. Your Shepard doesn't lool East Asian but she definitely looks Central Asian. (Saying this as a Kazakh :) )

she's a mix, on my mind her mom was asian and her father european or american.
XD! It was really hard to create her, because the game doesn't have very good ethnic features.

Yep that's why she looks Central Asian to me, since we're also called Eurasian, as in European/Asian mix ;)
I agree, I couldn't make any decent-looking Asian Shepard. Hell, I can't even make a European one. My Shepards are ugly. I should probably use some of those mods to replace their faces :D

yeah, me too...my femsheps are poorly done, (this is the only one that I've put more efforts to make her look better) XD!

I was tempted to use the face of Ashley and her skintone to make a Shep, but I don't know how to use well the gibbed editor.

Speaking as an asian girl I don't think I know any asians who look like that. She looks european (Maaaaybe hispanic -- maybe) to me, but I happen to think all the supposedly "asian" and all "ethnic" features in Mass Effect are poorly done anyway. Even Kasumi doesn't look asian, and she has a completely seperate set of features from the set players get to use. And the eyes they give Matsuo on ExoGeni and the journalist Wong are just downright insulting.

A very cool looking Shep, though! Less girly and more womanly-- adult. She looks hardy, capable and totally badass.

I think she looks very asian (but that's me :lmao:.), I made her watching some pics of asian girls, I uploaded some kind of wallpaper of her, but in some shots she clearly looks asian.
I'm not saying that she's completely asian, because on my head I was thinking that her mom was asian and her father european or american.

But you're right, the game has very poor ethnic features, I've made like 5 or 6 femsheps but no one looks too asian like this character, it was very hard to create her.
Now I've made another femshep on ME1, she looks more asian like this one, but you know, the faces change a lot on ME2 when you import your character, so I don't know how she's going to look in the game.

In many ways I think the faces in ME1 were much better. The eyes are much more realistic. Not as much detail in the iris, but the sclera looks great-- it even has pinkness and veins when the subject moves their eyes around. I was disappointed when I imported my Shep from the first game but then I started almost from scratch. I think the faces will change even more in ME3 even though they're using the same engine to make it. But I don't know if or how a player would go about fixing that. Maybe some helpful fan will make a gibbed save editor for ME3. I'm still hoping someone makes one for ME1.

And yeah, ethnic features in the whole Mass Effect series are pretty bad. Its almost a curse how much you can edit your characters. In some ways you can personalize your Shepard a lot. But its limited enough that it'll never really be completely there. My Shep is about 60% of how I picture her in my head. Not that I'm ungrateful. How many other games offer that amount of customization?

I was reading on the ME messageboards not too long ago that one of the head artistic directors is asian and yet the asian features are still shit. I find it incredibly disappointing. To their credit, they have lots of diversity in game-- too bad it just looks awful.

And I almost detached my mouse and threw it across the room when I saw Jeong in ME1. WTF, Bioware??
