Hello, everyone.

As the title so bluntly puts it, I've just dowloaded the installer+preorder DLC item installers from the GoG website; the game installation ran smoothly and the game itself seems to play just fine. However, the portraits on the caracter creation menu are unavaliable (as marked by a big red question mark on the profile square) in all races and both genders. 
I have uninstalled the game and done a new installation from scratch on a different location in the same drive (to discard privileges problems), but the issue still persists.
The art folder containing the subfolder portraits appears to be in perfect conditions as I can see all of them with my browser. Here are some screencaps of the issue.

I hope this is enough information to get a clear and swift solution out of this.

 

Thank you in advance for your help.

That's not normal. Sounds like you should uninstall and redownload the files from GOG or delete the local content in Steam and redownload.

Fixed it, gentlemen.
It was a Windows security issue, downloading the GoG files again did nothing to fix it.
To anyone else having this problem, I installed the game in my Desktop and set it to be ran as Admin by default. Afterwards I moved the folder back to where I initially wanted it to be. The game ran perfectly after that.
I assume this is not just a GoG problem, so I try it out if your game came from other source.
