I don't have the time to take a crack at it myself (and I'd probably botch it) so let's hope someone feels inspired by this pic.

Photoshop + pen tablet  :thumbsup:

Hard round brush for outlines ( size 2-4 )

Watercolor flat tip for painting (low opacity around 30-40%)

 

use original portrait from the game for color reference

 

You are hand drawing the outlines? I noticed that some of the linework you were doing couldn't be done with any edge detect method (at least, not one that I know of). I guess I need to go dig out my graphire. Not even sure if it still works!

The image looks quite nice until I resize it to 90:141 and 76:96, it almost looks... blurry. Anyone know if that's avoidable? using GIMP

Could anyone take a crack at this one? I'd really love to play a Death Godlike, but it's tough finding the perfect portrait.

Decided to just learn how to do it myself, here's my very rough first attempt at a fire godlike portrait I found!

 

Edit: Added a few more rough ones.

Noob question alert - what are people using to force the resize of the images to the required specs?

 

I personally use Paint.net to resize the picture but Gimp is another option. Both are free.

I also use paint to resize my images. 

Finally figured out how to make the images look more inky on edges. Trying to find some dwarves but here are my practiced gals if anyone wants them.

A half-decent orlan portrait.

Half-decent? This is really good!

Thanks! I’ve been perusing these portrait threads for a few weeks now, trying to find perfect portraits before realizing I could just do it myself (kinda). They’re kind of addicting to make, and if anyone has any they’d like done I could make some attempts.

 

The drawn watercolor ones still impress me the most, wish I could actually draw.

Gotta be "that person" for a second but I guess because I commissioned the piece and the artists signature was cropped out, I feel like the least that could be done is to share their twitter (@Ashinthepan), perhaps it could be helpful for anyone looking to get a custom portrait themselves.

If anyone try their hand with this one that'd be great! I have a picture I'm happy with but I do really like this one. And the fact her hair covers her ears means I could use it for Human AND Elf playthroughs.

Well, since you are offering :biggrin: , I think the game needs more Orlan portraits. I noticed that both the male and female official portraits have blond/brown hair/skin. So it would be good to have blue/green ones. For example:

Any chance an artist out there would be willing to take a real photo, turn it into a portrait and do the watercolor? 

 

Super nerd for wanting my brother and I in my game... :D Just curious :)

Sorry! I was meaning to post the credits in the post but I couldn't get to it before the post was approved. Certainly wasn't intending to try and maliciously alter anyone's artwork. Added the artist to the original post.

Sorry, not too satisfied with this one, but maybe you might get some use from it!

Not 100% happy with this picture, someone else can make it better if they wish.

I also noticed there were some male dwarf asks, so I did two. Hopefully these are ok? I'm going to be looking though PoE 1 portrait threads for better images.

I know that there are some online who will do portraits for money. I had two commissions for Baldur's Gate couple years ago for something around $10-20 each.
