  1. Nice! Great to see that they're doing little updates to player hairstyles. Butler's hairstyle before wasn't THAT off, but it really should've been shorter and not as "spiky". Really makes a huge difference IMO and can't wait to see more.
    Updated face scan. But I feel it is still off. They haven't able to get Jimmy Butler right. Hopefully next gen allows better muscle definition.
    But overall looks good
    Not a fan.
    Little muscle definition and overall looks very cartoonish and like plastic.
    Guess we’ll have to wait until next gen for things to get better in the graphics department.
    Feels like every year they put up a sweaty (possibly doctored photo) lol.
    Jokes aside I hope they’ve actually improved the skin tones or the way light bounces of the skin or whatever. The color palette has had the grayish ashy hue for the last couple years

    You can’t trust screenshots from 2k. They use filters and capture from specific angles that highlight the sweat
    Like your Instagram account?... I'm totally kidding lol

    Tbh, both faces look off to me. Kemba looks like WWE Superstar Big E.
    I wish they would just hire the guys who do the modded cyberfaces and let them work from home. Razor is a nice addition, but they could use a lot more help. Oh, and why in the heck do they not realize how off the player head to body ratios are? AD looks like a 5'6" dude scaled up to be 6'10". Everyone's heads are too big and their legs are too short. This needs to be addressed sooner rather than later.
    I refuse to get excited for screenshots as long as their CEO is Strauss Zelnick.
    Talk to me when they follow MLB The Show's lead and remove microtransactions from career mode.
    At least we have MyLeague. Still stunned that made it into the game at all, given who's in charge.

    Lol yh. But if they are legit, seems they upgraded the lighting back a bit for sure. I also like my eye candy, so my fingers are crossed.

    Yeah if they are legit then they definitely tweaked the lighting a little and updated the color saturation. I really hated the cold/gloomy/grey aesthetic of the past couple 2k’s. I like the warmer aesthetic.

    I'm afraid of the upcoming Westbrook screenshot...
    Lol be more afraid of what some of the WNBA players will look like. 2k has a weird track record with player likenesses.
    Yeah I know some can't be scanned but if a PC modder can capture a likeness with good ol' face sculpting with a high res face from the web. Surely the (paid) art team can do the same. No?

    There should be no way you look at 2K19 Jimmy or Kemba and say they look better than 2K20 lol. That said they do kind of gloss up these pics so I won’t trust it fully but if lighting is fixed that would be great. Really just ready for HD gameplay.

    Will never look good until they are allowed to scan him.

    They've made pretty good cyberfaces without face scans on several players before but with Westbrook it seems like they get worse and worse each year.
    Like I wonder who even approves of this. I mean Westbrook didn't look crazy bad in 2K18 but who the hell was responsible for ninja turtle looking *** Westbrook in 19....

    There is no excuse.
    Idk how they can look at this and say it was good to go. Same goes for a lot of these guys. They look "close enough", but are far from what they could look like.

    Yeah photos likes these get posted every year, still does not change the fact that until 2k scans him we will continue to get horrible player models.

    Their track record doesn't make me hopeful but we'll see. I don't think it can get any worse than 2K19 but the worse they can do is not tuning it whatsoever at all.

    Surely with the modder R4zoR now working for 2k, Westbrook would be the first player they would get him to fix since they have failed miserably for so long.

    hol up....R4zoR is now with 2k?
    illwill10
    Yes. Brian Mazique had a video within last few weeks confirming it

    If he is working in the creative face department then yes 2k player models, skin tone and faces will be 100% legit. R4zor does amazing creation not only for 2k but the 2k wrestling as well
    Congrats to him. Most our computer guys came from nlsc, it's good to see them accomplish there dreams through the years.

    Why can't they scan him in?

    I think when they sign contract to be on Live cover, it blocks 2k from being able to do face scans or promotional use of players for a time period

    I thought the same thing. The biggest difference I'm noticing in the butler/walker photos is the arena lighting and how its adding color to the player models. That looks good to me but I know some might disagree.
    But I'm really waiting to see if body proportions and head proportions have been changed. I hope it's not the same issues, I know we sound silly complaining about visual details to guys whose main concerns are gameplay, but it really takes me out of a game when someone like Bol Bol is thicccc with a huge head. They have to at least resemble the body type and head proportions so that the issue isn't glaring in the middle of the great gameplay.
    I think Butler is one of many R4zor's fixes because that's not a new scan, it's the same old scan from 2K14 but with updated texture and hair. Looks very very good. Can't wait to see more from him!

    And the body proportions actually affect the gameplay. Spacing would be very different and a player's length would have more importance.

    It actually is. From 14 to 16 he had the exact same face. In 17 they updated his hair but somehow made the face worse. And then they "re-do" a bunch of faces like LeBron and Jimmy but still the same scan. And to me, it looks like an updated texture on 20 but still, it's the same scan from 14. I was a modder, so I know a thing or two about face textures looking the same.

    What are you talking about? Westbrook looked a lot better in 19 than 18. He looked awful in 18.

    14 and that 18 are different just slightly altered
    2k17 face is wider
    This is 19
    If they didn't spend so much time on Renee Montgomery, maybe Jimmy Butler's face would have been more spot on. Damn you 2K!

    Are we just gonna point to anything R4zor? I mean 2K has updated hair styles on players many times in years past, no surprise. They did a bunch last year, and year before that.
    If anything R4zor was probably only allowed to touch up “classic” players since that’s what he is most famous for. Body proportions, face scans, nothing has changed or indicates R4zor has tuned it up or we’d notice it.

    There’s no way you can have someone else agree with you that 2K19 Westbrook was better than 18. If others do prefer 19, I could be wrong and is just my opinion but 19 looks absolute horrible. They both are anyway

    Would like o see some of the WNBA screenshots too, since that actually new this year, instead of just more sweat

    Everybody is catching on to the trend now lol. 2k adds a little sweat and people go crazy. It's the same every single year. I'm more interested in gameplay than artwork. A game that looks good but doesn't play good is a failure.
    illwill10
    That is that the type of photo angle I want to see. I just want to see a straight on picture. No angles highlighting sweat lol
    Yeah for some strange reason 2k likes that up the nose shot angle.
    Do you guys think the jerseys look a little bit more tighter or is it the same?

    I mean they do the same thing every single year. They apply filters to make the previous year look flatter and then add contrast and warmth to the new screenshots.
    Examples:


    Always the same. They’re not making any changes to the graphics until next gen. Let’s just skip the song and dance and move on to gameplay and game-mode details.
    DeMar Derozan's screenshot for 2k19 had the same wet sweaty glossy look, like glistened all over his skin.
    Please don't think these ashy *** player models next to these new screenshots mean anything at all.

    Totally agree. I know they can get this right cause they did a good job on Mo Bamba last year. Got all his proportions and body weight right.
    Now they need to fix My Team challenges and add more content because once you beat challenges, there is nothing left to do except play online.
    I buzzed through the schedule challenges and domination. I beat all of that back in December.
    The offline triple threat game mode is severely broken seemingly never-ending.
    CaVsFaN2273
    R4zor must be fixing some of the current players. Kawhi and Dame's faces look similar to last year but much better and much more detailed.

    Yep they does. By the way, does sim engine broken to you in 2k19 ???. It look fine to me because bucks, warriors, raptors, 76ers and Portland record look accurate to me. Curry, giannis, harden, LeBron and kawhi are in top 5 for pts avg in league leader

    Why do u attribute that to him? Doesn’t 2k update players year to year.
    All the 'shininess' in the new pics can be replicated in replay mode at the right angle...it's been shown repeatedly throughout the Photographic thread. Of course this is the look they capture when 2K promotes their new game. There's really no grand conspiracy here .
    Looks like the skinny waist models they went with last year have made their return though...

    I'm actually fine with where the face likenesses are at. I'm more so concerned about body types and head sizes. Kawhi has a very chiseled and defined look to his muscles.
    I'm not saying these body types need to be removed, they work well, with certain players.

    Yeah, but to me it just looks like R4zor's work and his level of detail on those two and also Jimmy. Not trying to discredit anyone else on the art team, but after seeing a lot of his cyber-faces, that's what it looks like to me. Could be completely wrong though.

    KD and Kyrie

    KD and Kyrie’s face scan looks the same. With Kyrie in past years, his face scan didn’t look quite right for some reason even though he was cover athlete but at least the hair update makes it a bit better idk what it is though.

    Agree. 2K16 has the best player models in general to be honest (excluding MJ). 👍
    I'm hoping Wall, Russ, & Jokic, got updates, but also lesser players as well. Jabari Parker has had the same scan for a quarter century.

    2K16....then there was 2K17. I’m still appalled how it got worse over a one year span. Like I’m literally mind blown and disgusted how 2K17 looked. Everybody had a stick of an arm and had barrel sized shoulders on others.

    Well...if you're into graphics.

    True Ksuttonjr. There is no need to complain about player art on PC due to the awesome modding community there. If you are the kind of person who sweats those details like accurate player likenesses (No shortage of good Westbrooks on PC), hair styles, tats, body types, etc. then PC is always the best option.
    As far as the screenshots that were released it appears the lighting and skin texture have been improved from 19' imo. I'm praying that R4zor was brought in exclusively to help with legends and/or current NBA players who weren't scanned. 2k is taking a huge contributor away from the modding community and I hope they don't just stick him in the basement somewhere..

    Man I hate to be that guy I know I’m probably gonna get banned for this. But it’s clear that 2k paying OS & Forbes to fool the public with these screens. The jig is up. Every year they post a comparison they always use pics of players from the previous iteration that are dry, to make the new glossy screenshots standout. Why not set the quarters to 1 minute and capture photos during the 4th when everyone is sweaty? Then compare them to the new sweat driven screenshots? That would give people a better indication on how much the graphics have improved. Enough with the shenanigans. Everybody has already caught on.
    Like bro c’mon...
    Btw, watching the rating reveal stream right now on 2k twitter. They definitely confirmed new lighting, so safe to say the change we are seeing in the pics is legit.
    NINJAK2
    Westbrook looks ok. Based on that angle I can't tell if it's the same model from 19 or a slight improvement.

    I saw another pic on the stream too...he looks pretty much the same tbh. Thought he would have got a hair update, but oh well.
    It’s like 2k go out of their way to make Russ look bad. I find it hard to believe that in almost 7years there isn’t anyone talented enough at 2k to render a good face for him. Modders do it every year, why can’t 2k?
    Not only did the Warriors lose the NBA Finals but 2K had 2 opportunities to showcase Klay and Steph but apparently they didn’t have their screenshots which is FRUSTRATING! No love for Warriors at all....
    They said they are in SF right? They better be getting their faces scanned if that’s the reason why they didn’t even bother showing their screenshots today.

    I’m appalled they didn’t even update Westbrook’s hair. This is probably the prime example that R4zor wasn’t given the ability to tune face scans because there is no way he would’ve let the current Westbrook face scan pass. 🤢

    No doubt aeroneflores. Hold out hope they are still working on players. I know 2k fixed quite a few players between early leaked/released game footage and the actual game release. I could see even in the early cell phone footage that KCP still hasn't been updated yet..

    The Warriors new jerseys? They don’t have new ones, well not drastic at least since they only changed the bridge logo slightly and the font.
    I could be totally wrong and the Warriors may be brewing up a completely new jersey style 🤷🏻*♂️
    If I remember correctly, they released a screenshot of LeBron wearing the old Laker jerseys way, way ahead of the new ones being announced.

    Yes they said the reason they didn’t show Klay and Steph is because hey are getting new uniforms when they move into their new stadium. So they waiting to unveil
    The lighting on the solo PG and AD pics looks dope. Hopefully that translate to in game since they said they worked on lighting.
    Makes me think about the jump we'll see in visuals next gen. The lack of muscle tone and varying body types is obvious. Makes me think that Zion won't look like himself this year
