Katrina and the team have been in contact with me regarding my custom portrait, and I must say I'm really liking it!

This is almost a full circle thing for me, as I recall my high school days, using MS Paint to make very amateur portraits of myself for Baldurs Gate, so to have my mug officially in Deadfire is an emotional moment.

I gave feedback on the initial draft and they took into consideration what I wanted changed and updated. I've received my close-to final version today and I'm a happy chappy 😊

I'd share but I'm not sure how Obsidian feel about sharing before public release.

The concept is a human who looks slightly plane touched (almost like assimar), who would fit the look of a Paladin and perhaps a Paladin/Cipher (Inquisitor).

Have you received updates on your custom portraits/content? What do you think of it?

Yes, better do NOT share unless you have spoken with Obsidian first and they agreed to it. Otherwise, great to hear you like the almost-final version of your portrait.

 

I wonder if we will be able to recognize you from your avatar ;)

You're not into the lore, are you?

Yeah, it's under wraps, but perhaps people will see the final version when it's patched into Pillars 1 for the definitive edition.

My current avatar may give you an idea ;-)

πŸ˜ƒ I obviously know that aasimars are not related to the universe here. That was more a visual descriptor of one characteristic they've added to my portrait and not a literal description.

Glad to hear you're happy with it! I didn't realize they had a feedback process. That strikes me as risky since some gamers can seem... overly entitled, or non-constructively critical. Glad that this does not seem to be the case with PoE fans :) And good on Obsidian for putting themselves out there like that to make sure their high level backers are happy

Yeah I totally agree,

 

I liked the initial draft portrait instantly, so I hope I didn't come across as overly entitled when I asked for a couple of revisions after being asked for feedback on it!

 

I made sure to voice my appreciation and that I really liked it, and just asked if they have time to change background colour and to remove a certain item.  

They'd have so much work to do prior to launch, so the fact that they've been open to and have implemented feedback requests is greatly appreciated.

 

So if any of the Obsidian team come across this post, let me voice my appreciation for your talented and hard work once again. :)

Ok here it is.

My portrait which will be patched into Pillars 1 and the Deadfire beta soon, and of course, the full Deadfire release in 2018.

Neat, I was curious if you were going to try and reclaim your hair or not.

 

Did you have a particular class/combo in mind?

Hmmmm... I don't seem to have this Portrait in my game after installing the patch/deadfire pack thing.

 

The portrait is cool AF though.

:lol:  No, bald and proud.  Magical abilities Ill fantasise about but not the hair :lol:

 

I'm intending to play as either a single class Paladin or most likely some multi subclass combo of Paladin/Cipher

Thank you :)

 

Thats because they needed my approval for the final revision and it couldn't be done on time.  Katrina said it (and a couple of others) will be patched in soon.

Very cool! Assuming you are playing Human, are the forehead markings some kind of scarification or does it have any meaning?

Yeah, I'll be playing as a human.  Of course, being a role playing game, if anyone chooses to use this portrait, they can come up with whatever backstory or class they like ;)

 

Depending on how much liberty or elaboration someone wishes to make on the law and backstory, it could be ritual scarification (which would also be fitting for a monk), or a physical manifestation of cipher/mental or divine abilities through sacrifice and rigorous training.  Personally I like to see it as a synergy of both.

Custom backer portrait is always a good thing in my book, different faces. Also great job to the art team :)
