An interesting idea. There's no way that you could use actual live Cryptic artists to do this, however. It is simply too much time and effort. Tens of thousands of people play this game. The artists have things to do besides draw your character. Did you know the character art team for this game is only a couple of people?
However, what if there was some kind of web application where you could upload a pic of someone and the application would create a head for that picture, which you could then save like any other uniform file, and then upload once you got into the game.
That seems like something which an enterprising independent person could do, and it wouldn't take any time or effort away from our character art team. You'd also be able to upload any photo of anyone, which means we could all expect to see a few more Kim Cardassians running around.
