Why I never see characteristic faces and clothing? Come on guys.
Do you mean Belic, Misty, Vercetti and/or main protagonists? And what are characteristic clothes?
Well, in my limited experience (which is limited to only shuffling every combination of mother grandparents), it is VERY hard to make a decent looking female avatar.
Granted, I am no expert at this, and the proof is right here - I can`t seem to find the proper combo for a decent looking mouth, but it DOES seem that you can only end up with roughly the same combo of ancestors...
[EDIT] As for clothes, my idea of her is simple: regular clothes, nothing special - dropped shoulder t-shirt + light blue jeans and white running shoes. I don`t like over complicated avatars and/or clothes.
