PBs You Haven't Had a Chance to Use


  • Pitcrew

    Has there been a PB you desperately want to use, but you've never had the opportunity?

    I choose PBs based on the character. I have general parameters in mind (race, hair color, maybe eye color, etc etc.), but they have to fit a right look. I suppose similar to the "period face" thread. I always just know the PB is right when I see them.

    Which means sometimes, an actor or actress languishes for a while before I get to use them. And others... others I never seem to get to use.

    Like Mary Elizabeth Winstead, who is just so dang cute:

  • I have no idea who this is really, but her face tells my imagination stories to fill in that gap that really want to be tragically noble and epic in some way.


    Started a character with this one back on TR, never finished it. <3 her face. A friend of mine calls it 'reeks of surr alt'-ness. She does.

    @auspice She was my Sera on BSO! Somewhere, I have a gif her making exploding handgestures that was subtitled "Sera Explains Very Technical Things" -- relevant, since Sera was a deckie.

    I've wanted to use her forever, but... nothing seems awesome enough.

    She was my hero as a little girl.



  • @surreality Your first is a poet and model named Segovia Amil. She was my Mekhet elder on F&L.

    Some of my current unused PBs: Jane Lynch, Sarah Gadon, Hannah John-Kamen, Caity Lotz, and Phildel.

    I was going to use Gugu Mbatha-Raw on The 8th Sea. She is so pretty!


  • Pitcrew

    One that I really want to use but haven't has a concept that his look fits is Victor Mature

    Danny DeVito. One glorious day. It will be my masterpiece.

    This thread should be renamed 'Repository of PBs that I will Snick for Future Characters'

    Keep them coming, guys.

    @sockmonkey Just wait until someone bitches you out for using their PB. :)


  • Pitcrew

    @Arkandel No one would ever get mad about that! We're all mature adults here. Right?



  • FWIW, I have a whole pinboard full of 'something about that person is story cool'. I'm always happy to pass it along to folks if they are desperately searching for 'not seen everywhere all the time'. Sadly, most of them end up being hair models for some fool reason and finding out the name or ID on those is... it strains even my image-dig fu.

    I am clearly drawn to awesome hair or something. And freckles. There are freckles frickin' everywhere all over that board.

    I never mind if someone grabs one from there and heartily encourage it! ...unless I handed them that link and am currently using the same person they pick off of it on the same game, at which point I don't get mad, but I do get a really strong case of the ' ...really?'s 'cause that's just disheartening and a bit jerky. :/


  • Coder

    My problem with building a character around a played-by is that I think of the person whose image I'm borrowing and I think, "Am I doing this person credit with this concept? Is this the kind of thing they would play or pretend, as professionals?" And then I stop thinking about my character and start thinking about their character.

    That said, it's good to see people posting some images of people who wouldn't otherwise be models. I just can't play pretty-pretty princess or princesses, except sarcastically.

    I will say right now: if you use MEW on a game before I do, I will be a little sad (esp. if it was a concept where I finally felt able to use her), but I'll get over it. Shit happens. ;)

    @Auspice I'm only kidding! I'm not going to troll this thread for PBs. It's just in visiting it, I found myself discovering people I had never known and seeing these interesting faces immediately began to spark ideas of stories behind them. What is the cause of the sadness that lies behind her eyes? Why does her lips curl in that devious little way? It ends up being a fun creative exercise, imagining the characters they could be.
