2k fixed their pointy elbows years ago.


EA's forearms/elbows are just wrong - i've studied anatomy - they are anatomically incorrect.

Hopefully the players progress to this degree of 'sheen' after playing several minutes and working up a sweat.
Have u seen the Anthony Davis screen? Westbrook looks alright .

Westbrook's model was almost identical in the current game (down to the Jordan wrist bands).

Yeah the graphics have improved again since Live 15, but not so dramatically.

Agreed about most people sleeping on Live15's graphics. Not to mention, as the season progressed, they updated player face scans (Joakim Noah comes to mind). I do the think the Live16 graphics are taking a good leap forward though, at least if you compare screenshots from this year to last.

lol, were you referring the Anthony Davis 2K screen? Where people were saying that he was ashy? I suppose. I think Westbrook looks great, I just hope the players aren't this greasy at all times, but if they are, it's not a dealbreaker either

lol. The fact is we can all pick apart 2K and Live screenshots, player models, environments til we're all blue in the face. Folks were trippin' over chipped teeth in a 2k thread, lol

the curve of the elbow is too round and not pointy enough. also, the wrists are proportionally too narrow, and from certain angles you can see that the forearms are too thick and rounded.

Live's elbows are rigged so that they bend like sausages or sock puppets, and the muscles on the sides of the arm get pinched rather than compressing naturally. It's like a tube of meat bent in half, with a point where it folds.

Actual bent elbows have a particular profile that's formed by the bones and has the shape of a curve starting from the upper arm that ends in a squarish bony protrusion. The protrusion juts out a bit from the line formed by the forearm.

It's really not the big a an eye sore fellas. C'mon!!!

the second to last pic shows what hes talking about. The bending of the elbows are unnatural and unrealistic... Not a deal breaker, but makes arems look like rubberbands or something
 
# 37 iLLWiLL @ 08/10/15 04:12 PM
I can't stress enough how amazed I am at Live's graphics.

One thing to note, though -- was I thought they did body scans? Doesn't look like necessarily scanned Westbrook's as the screenshots are missing his scars. Definitely not a big deal, however. Falls into the category of chipped teeth, inexact hair, and elbows for me -- amazing that graphics are to the point that this is what we are over-analyzing now...

It almost seems like sweat changes the the entire completion of the player...

Elbows aren't a big deal to me personally, but it does explain why arms sometimes appear out of socket...makes a lot of sense now actually..

This is of course all nit picking though (though the sweat thing is odd)....I think RW looks good IMO...

I think the most egregious thing is the missing scars honestly and even that is small potatoes on the "needs improvement" list. Westbrook looks great in these shots outside of that. That color on the road jersey is off though. That needs to be touched up.

Does anyone know if in the season mode you can play/own all of the teams?
