Is the way I did that Mutu more difficult?Seriously mate, making a face with the usual method is easier and might take less time. Plus, it's the legit way to do it
Is it harder?
Takes more time?
Maybe? At least in my case...
Am I logical?
No and I'll take it to my grave with me and I feel good
Anyway, trust me, there are not that much custom faces back from FIFA 13 or 12 that keeps level now, if they didn't retired and anyone remembers them.
It's rather exception than the rule. And I think it's cool to save some megabytes of hard-drive with model with new, adjusted texture.
Let's be honest, I wouldn't do better Mutu from scratch
