So one of the very few issues I had with POE was the lack of portraits for orlans, wild orlans and aumaua. One of the major reasons I didn't play them that much. Now I don't know much of game production so I'm not sure when they actually work on portraits, but it would be really nice if and when they have new portraits, particularly for the afore mentioned races, they would release them. Deadfire is a continuation of the first game and I'd like use the same characters. That includes the portraits. It's not a problem for most races, as I have portraits I really like, but poor orlans really got the short end of the stick. Obviously I'd like to start a few new playthroughs to get ready for Deadfire otherwise it wouldn't be an issue.

1) Will they have "updated to the new graphics" versions of all the old portraits? Because I'm going to need to both a specific portrait, and to have that portrait get one eye all ****ed up looking.

It's *important*.

More Orlans full stop, more Dwarves and ones that include the PoE specific versions of dwarves (swashbuckling Vailian dwarves for instance) instead of just the stereotypical fantasy ones.

There's already plenty of human and dwarven ones, the Orlan and Aumaua portraits are the ones that need more of.

I said more orlans, and there are not plenty of dwarven ones and none of them fit the Vailian theme despite being one of the two main races from there.

It would be cool some kind of portrait maker, a base for every race, and different facial features, expressions, pigmentation, clothes, godlike features, maybe some class elements, to choose from.

I'd love this too, I'd rather have the portrait now (or before release) so I can use it from the start of PoE1.

Ye it would be great if they release portraits as soon as they create them so we can make POE1 runs.

Or at least tintable portraits, with multiple color channels.

Neat idea, but I can't see it happening without dropping portrait quality by quite a bit. I don't think that hand drawn shaders would translate well unless they would hand every single item. I suppose, this is where 3d models shine. It is not something I have a big problem personally though.

I just had a thought about portraits. Now that the graphical detail of character faces has been improved, and we have several options to customize our character's face, I think it's even more important to include less defined portraits I.e. veiled faces. In the first game I used a portrait of a guy with a pulled-down hood as the discrepancies with my 3D model's face were mostly hidden.

 

So more Nazgûls, niqābs and ninjas in the portraits please.

I'm pretty hairy. So I use my own portrait for a Wild Orlan pcs. It works.
