A thread for showing off good potential custom portraits that you found online or made yourself. I found this on google and think it might make a good human aristocrat.

Wish I had any talent at all in this regard. I'd love a heavily scarred, wild-eyed Orlan portrait to use for my main playthrough. :-D

I'm looking for a portrait for a male slave wizard or a merchant cipher, anyone have a good one?

I threw this together by kitbashing a couple pictures together.

Not entirely happy with it. I had to go heavy on the blurring to cover up the variety of styles and my lack of artistic talent.

There's an existing thread for this in the backer beta forum that might be worth checking out. 

 

One good source for pictures is online collectible card games. Lots of people have found images from "Legend of the Cryptids" that worked well for PoE with proper cropping (though lots of the art is too anime-ish).

Funny how fast things get around. That is a picture I modified (not draw, wish I could) for use in PoE. She is going to be a Vailian Cipher.

 

I have some other portraits here: http://imgur.com/a/Gok09

Many of the portraits in that link have been updated/modified. There are also many more portraits that are not shown in that list.  :grin:

Yeah I hope there will be waaaay more portraits, especially female ones, else I'll struggle creating my own adventurer party. It's a good thing you can add your own custom portraits though.

The problem I have finding something on Google Image or what have you is that I'm gonna be playing one of their unique races, and I would prefer something with a background-relevant scarring. I don't have the skills to make it and it's to niche for anybody else to care. :p

I collected a bunch of custom portraits early on just cause I like option but now that I'm set playing an Orlan I'm stuck with whatever portraits the game comes with since there really aren't any suitable alternatives out there, and from what I've seen none of them really light my fire. They're not bad by any means, they're all quite good, but none of them stick out to me as my character.

Great portraits :)
This reminds me, I should get back to work on a few of my own, now that I have the new PC :)

Here are two I found (and modified), one for a Nature Godlike and one for Moon.

Garrus Vakarian as an Avian/Hylean Godlike like Pallegina!

 

He was flying solo on a M7 Spectre Mission when one day he warped through an ancient Mass Effect Relay and ended up in the world of Eora...he still believes he's a Turian, but the people of Eora believe he's a Hylean Godlike...hoewver there are few who who think he's a living Engwithan of the dead Ancient Kingdom Eir Glanfath.
