Edit:

If you want to share/repost these:

PLEASE, share them like they are (uncropped) and link back to me(http://wespenfresser.deviantart.com for example)

 

DO NOT POST THEM ONLINE WITHOUT MY NAME ON THEM!

 

You may also link to or reblog them from tumblr or facebook. Thanks.

 

 

Hey guys!

No idea where to post this, because it doesn't really fit anywhere..

 

Anyways, I wanted to paint some portraits for some time now, and I finally “found” some time.

I have also seen some people making* some things that might have been custom portraits too, so...if any of you have some stuff to show, bring it on!

(* making as in painting, possibly manips , not “google&crop”..I'm not fond of that, since people rarely give credit and often crop signatures.)

 

So, here we go! 

Little disclaimer: They are not the same style as the default ones, and might be a little dark/contrast-y.  Also not cropped to proper size yet.

I sometimes didn't know which cues in the default portraits where intentional, and I might have ignored some on purpose. ( I'm dependent on what people are posting, I don't have the BB.)

Just fluffy messing around and twisting some things to my taste. Might still fix some wonkieness.

 

custm-portrait-aumaua.jpg

Aumaua

Intended as first character. Probably cipher, aiming to get a big gun.

Might still mess around with the skin pattern, but I like her.

 

fanart-PoE-custom-portrait-death-godlike

Death Godlike (Aumaua Bodytype)

Currently fighting with the blue one over my attention. Intended as a Bleak Walker.

I have some spare heads for him, some like the ones I saw, and then ones that make him look more like one of my OCs. :) This is one of the latter. That's also why I rarely paint them though, black-on-black-on-black is just really hard for me to make readable.

 

fanart-PoE-custom-portrait-orlan-female1

 

Wild Orlan

The most fun one, just because. I like fluffy things.

Made it a little more...you know, less hairy-person like, more.. cute?

 

I still have a few unfinished ones, and I meant to try and make a little better poses for the one I play first. (I didn't mean to make any interesting poses anyways, but a little different wouldn't hurt.)

Not sure If I'll find time, though. (I might have more time if I wasn*t taking hours to type this...DX DAAAR!)

These are awesome! I particularly love that Orlan! Wouldn't work for my character, but so awesome looking.

Great portraits - love the aumaua one especially (though they're all good).

Best I can do is my current avatar, which I'll be using for my 1st playthrough as a druid)

Holy Catfish! These are great! 

 

If you actually expect people to use these however, you should remove the watermark. I realize you want to promote your work but it defeats of purpose of posting them in a community setting (except of course to simply get praise).

Thanks! :D What kind of character -are- you going to play?

Thank you. :)

Nope, I'd like to...but I am kinda flailing aimlessly atm. (Also trying to wrap up some other "project".)

Add being really shy and awkward to having massive self-doubt, and you have my skills at self promotion.

I mean, seriously,  I meant to post here for days...and I nearly talked myself out of it again.
 

Pretty epic portraits. This makes me want to play a Wild

 

Orlan instead of my Thyrtan Human that I wanted to.

 

Give in~
Playing human is bad for you, why don't you try some orlan?
Just imagine the soft silky fur, and twitching ears... also racial discrimination... er, wait...

Specifically, I'm going to play an Orlan Cipher from Old Vaila who is fleeing his slave past and has gone a little crazy and a little native in the Dyrwood; courteous, polite, passionate, and viciously/brutally pragmatic. I'm planning on refusing to discuss my slave past at the beginning, being pretty open about other stuff, and hopefully having the option to slowly reveal my slave past over the course of the game as I deal with the problems and issues facing me.

A dream portrait would require an Orlan who is, at the least, scarred and a little wild-eyed. :)

I'm not in the industry, but it sure seems like to me you definitely have the ability. I'd encourage you to reach out to some of the people at these companies, they always need art assets.  And the more you post the more likely you'll catch the eye of someone important.  Best of luck!  

 

I looked up your website and it looks like it's down at the moment.  If you have a Tumblr or other blog I'd love to check out your other work though.

Wow that is some crazy good talent you got there. Well done!

 

EDIT: Do you accept commissions (with payment) for a customized portrait? :D

I'm not fond of that, since people rarely give credit and often crop signatures.)

 

 
 

I like your portraits, but do you expect people to play with a huge logo of your company on their portrait? Are you going to remove the logo for people to be able to use the portraits?

:D <3 I was kinda worried, nobody would like that one. Because...you know, orlans being fluffy.

 

Is that 3d? Kinda reminds me of  P:T.

Thank you. :)

 

I originally meant to crop them, and add something easier to cut off. But last time I -did- try to crop them, that stuff up there was cut off anyways. (It's up there to be less obtrusive.)

I am not 100% sure that is still the case (might have to check), but it made that other exercise kinda pointless.

 

Yes, I do not like posting stuff without my name, I actually don't like -other peoples- paintings without something to indicate their origin either...

Especially considering hardly anyone ever bothers to give credit.

 

However, saying that "it defeats of purpose of posting them in a community setting" is somewhat over the top, in my opinion.

I mean, it might not be ideal, but seriously ..at worst that makes them non-portrait-ready fanart.

That way it just sounds like it would make any signatures or watermarks disqualifying in a community setting....

So you will not remove the watermark, correct?

You're only posting these to self-promote, but you emphatically do not want people to use these portraits in game, correct?

yeah - I use a 3D program then postwork with some filters and touch-ups.

Wish I could paint properly but I get by.

I encourage you to post more of your work - they're ace (and we do need some more portraits for aumaua/orlan/godlike types :) )

 

Edit: For ingame portraits - the dimensions are 210x330 for large and 76x96 for small - the game will resize larger portraits to fit but the compression apparently blurs it slightly so best to resize it yourself in whatever software you use (PS/Gimp/etc)
