Scary Fear in SR4  
I finally get to show a little bit of this guy here. So I'm fully into the game Saint's Row 4 now as Scary Fear. Here are a few screen caps of him.

For being a game about creating humans I love how he turned out. I love his off black skin tone, his pointy face and white glowing eyes. I love this particular screen shot because he looks so much like my icon from Conspiracy. I'm impressed.

Even the hair is something I'm pleased with. I flattened his head as much as I could as Fear has no cranium. His eyes are his head. The blue hair is nice as he has one blue hair and the red bandana is like his one red hair. Too bad there wasn't a purple one and he'd have all three colors but I'm very pleased with this representing his dendrites.

Here he is with his final outfit. I'm very happy with this outfit. It's almost right for how I draw him. He'd be 90% perfect if he had wings.

And the closest I could make a cloak for him. It looks pretty cool too like in my story.

Here he is coming in for a landing. This game is fun as Fear for me because he glides, super jumps, and has elemental powers. I haven't unlocked all the elements yet but this early in the game I'm quite happy with him just flying. I don't like that he turns white like this when he flies. I don't know why. I hate that. I also don't like that it's constantly night and jittery because it's a simulation.

The story is that you've saved America and become President of the US. And once the country is running so well aliens invade and destroy everything. You're captured and put into a simulation and the game basically is a giant Matrix parody which is great. There are also a lot of Mass Effect and Doom references and parodies in this which makes it nice.

You can change your character at any time. I tried my hand at making George.

Not bad. I didn't do my best because I wasn't feeling well. The outfit and the guns in this are great for him, but I just can't play the game as him because of the flying. George can't fly and hates flying. Although if I kept him to jumping he reminds me of Jeepers Creepers which is cool. But not. I will play as Fear.

And this game has the fatal hat glitch that all games have. WHY can't anyone make a game that when you put a hat on you don't lose your hair? If you have long hair and you put a hat on it should stick out the bottom of the hat. That's not hard. Why don't programmers do this? I can't stand this though that hat is perfect shape wise. Sigh. He ends up with a short pony tail which I hate. So I'd rather have no hat than no hair.

So I'm sticking with Fear because he fits into the mythos of the game so well. His voice is really good too. You get a choice of 3 male voices and you can mess with the pitch of them. I gave him a + 20 pitch and it's quite close to how I imagine him talking. Here's a short video with some of my commentary of him flying around. I hope you guys can hear me. I had a cheap earbud with mic to record this.

Please comment. I'd love to hear what you guys think.

It would be!

Oh, the mayhem you could cause. Mwhahaha!

I think you made Scary Fear really well here, even if it’s with a human character creator.

Oh gosh I HATE the hat thing. That always bothered me in the Sims with some hats and even GTA Online. I always choose the hair that’s like my natural style which is neck-length and wavy, but that seems to be an enemy of hats, haha.

I'm loving this game. It's so great playing as Fear. He fits in perfectly.

Ha you too huh? Yes I hate this hat problem in all the games. So annoying. Why can't the hat just go on top like regular clothing?

Fear, and George for that matter, seem pretty cool in this game. I'm very impressed with how Fear turned out, nice to find some design substitutes to make up for his real design like with what you did with his hair. I particularly like the hoodie, it does resemble his cloak a little and makes him look creepy in the right way.

The hat glitch is a new one on me. I've never heard of it before but it certainly sounds ludicrous, why not make it so the hair is still present in some shape or form instead of having it disappear? Naturally this wouldn't be a problem with Spite since he's bald but it would be a problem with Snide since he has rather long hair so that must be fixed.

Thanks. The best George I have ever made that's closest to my art is from Dragon's Dogma. I wish he looked that way in all the games. But no hat or helmet for him because of the same hair issue. This also happened in Sims 3. Very annoying. I can't make Skyler in SR4 right either because of his top hat. So he has no hat if I make him again. Good thing Spite is bald but yeah Snide would have the same problem. This is a huge mess in all games that let you create. Some games have bugged me so much I've made photo manips to see what they'd look like if they could just have the hat over the hair. But anyway yeah I'm glad you like Fear in this game. Technically Fear is also bald but he does have his three hairs. He very much needs them as they are so iconic to his look that it is hard to find a "hair" for him in these kinds of games. I'm glad this bun with bandana combo worked so perfectly.
