I'm hoping for about double the amount of portraits we have now, as struggled to find one for most of my characters.

 

Double what they have now would basically be the minimum required. Even four times as much would only give them decent variety. They would need hundreds of portraits for a decently varied selection.

Because the 2D artists were fully booked making in-game resources and those took higher priority?

Yep. And Kaz and Polina stated as much. They'll get to them as time and resources permits.

Not to be a grump, but what would make you think they'd portraits at the last minute?

 

The art was probably completed well in advance of the rest of the game -- and it's not as if there's anything in the portraits that needs to be tested.

They might not have actually added all of them to the game yet. Maybe digitizing their art assets is not yet complete. We don't really know. It just seemed like such a ridiculously short list of portraits (plus duplicates of one guy with a different haircut) as to be obviously non-final.

I'm not saying this is final or non-final, I'm just reviewing what's out there now, and what's missing. I got no idea what the devs have in store for us, but there's a good chance portraits are something they'll take care of later when they're done doing icons and stuff. And then this thread will be there for them, as a "hmmm, right, there's not a lot of choice for this type of NPC..." type of reminder or something.

If anyone has a favorite site for portraits, feel free to post it. Preferably images that scale to PoE size without looking too horrendous.

Tartantyco a few posts back has links to portrait packs in his signature. Check these out.

Unfortunately, BG-size portraits don't scale very well to PoE.

They're the same size as the PoE portraits.

^yeah, the 'large' portraits in BG1/2 et al  are the same size as the in-game ones in PoE.

(In BG, you'd see the 'medium' and 'small' portraits in-game - 'large' ones at character creation and end-game epilogues after TOB)
