Sonya's face

ArcticTabasco

I wish I knew Kung Fu.
I definitely think she looks a little weird. Mainly because she looks nothing like MKX Sonya. She doesn't look like the same character but older - she looks like a different character entirely.

And having Rousey do the voice is also definitely weird. Again, big departure from MKX, and that's what feels weird about it. Rousey's performance sounds a bit flat too... :/ I get the idea of casting Rousey from a publicity perspective, but I can't help to *feel* it might've been detrimental to the character. Too early to say anything for sure one way or another though. She might be fine in the story.

CMON SHUT UP ALL OF YOUR HOLES! Those faces are AWESOME, very realistic. dont compare to tekken or soul calibur. they come from mangas / cartoonish stuff. in mk11 faces are real and so fatty it will be even more beautiful seeing them smashed. Look at sonya in mk9. she was HORRIBLE look at jaqui MKX she was EVEN MORE HORRIBLE. finally in this mk theyre doing a good job. look at the expression of the eyes they make when they get pain!! looks real, spexially the face sonya makes when she gets that fatal blow

Talking about how NRS used to do female faces doesn't really apply anymore since they are scanning real people now vs just modeling a face. Sonya looks better when she has hair hanging down a bit, I know good looking hair takes a good amount of resources but I hope they give her a longer hairstyle or at least let her hair hang out vs being put in a pony tail at some point.

'ello baby, did you miss me?
NRS always seem to make everyone look butch with chizzeled jawlines. Which is fine for the male characters but seems to make the women look a bit odd. If their aim is to make everyone be realisticaly atractive then i want Raiden to have nasal hair and a beer belly, and Johnny cage to be rockin a comb over.
That's... pretty much exactly what they're doing. You've seen Injustice 2, right? Just like not every woman is 10/10 gorgeous, not every man looks 10/10 heroic either.






You're telling me that any of these guys would give Brad Pitt a run for his money? Lol... Sonya is 10x more attractive as a woman in MK11 than any of those guys above are as dudes, except maybe possibly Superman. Not even gonna touch on Aquaman's pre-internet-outrage dork face.

I don’t want to know who they scanned for Cassie.

She's not ugly. Not like in MKvsDCU and MK9. I do miss that little strand of hair down her face though, as her face looks rather bare, if that makes sense.

She does seem to have a younger skin as well though.

If you look at that same Outro for the older version it’s the same face. She looks fine in a few intros and the outros like that one. It doesn’t look like that all of the time though, I just think she’s unfinished lol. She will look like that picture by launch.

I dunno how to post pictures but i’ll try lol


She doesn’t look bad here. She’s not as chubby in the face and her nose has gotten a few seasoned beatings but she has been there since day 1. She looks damn good considering. I think some of the facial expressions are makes her look weird sometimes. I can definitely see what people are talking about but it’s not that bad.

I think it's the hat and lack of long hair that hurts her look.

Yeah the new face made her look much younger, Like one of those moms whom you can't believe she have a 20 something y/o offspring.

She looks way better, it may just be the angle but her nose looks a little smaller and her face just looks less rough all the way round.
 
yes, they smoothed her face somehow, and the result make her looks way better !
I'd be waiting for a better image to compare before making any concrete assertions:

1 / different lighting in both
2 / different animation of the mouth
3 / and most importantly, it's blurred as fuck! you can't see any detail in her jumper, chain or jacket.


Not saying there weren't some slight tweaks, but that's not the image to show it.

Perhaps, but in the video of her vs Cage I noticed her improved looks immediately. And if the difference in the image is just due to lighting then damn lighting is much more effective than I ever imagined because that straight up looks like two different women to me.

Lighting is a huge facet in photography. You can make the hottest person look like shit with some hard lighting and sharp shadows.

That image has one in full sun and the other under shade. You can barely make out any wrinkles/creases in her face in the right image. But the left one clearly has creases around her nose/mouth and between the eyebrows.

Again, it could well be NRS has softened her wrinkles, or IMO it's the shit image that was used for comparison. Or maybe that's her younger version wearing her other outfit?

New Sonya face looks... not really sure what to think. She looked more realistic with her reveal face.
This just looks weird now. Like she got a plastic surgery.
