Making a Black Desert Character that Looks Like Me

tomothum

Does anyone else ever make video game characters that look like them? I do sometimes, but often it ends up being just for fun because it’s very distracting to play a video game and always seeing your face. Is that why no one does it? There must be someone out there.
