New portraits!

Postby 10x10room » Mon Jun 25, 2012 10:24 am

There are ten new portraits now available for characters, doubling the previous number. Specifically, each race/gender combination has a new portrait, meaning that when you create a new character, you'll be able to choose between two different portraits that fit your race and gender. You'll get the choice after picking your archetype, race, and gender; you'll pick during Step 3, at the same time that you name your new character. We hope you enjoy the new artwork, which was done by the inimitable Chris Rahn, the same artist who painted all the previous character portraits.

We also took the opportunity to dramatically increase the size of the portraits displayed on your "character sheet": the page you see when you click your character's name from your character list.

Is there a way to get the portrait of an existing character changed?

And since duplicate portraits will be an ongoing (if less frequent) problem, what do you think of the idea of horizontally flipping the portrait of the second character with the same portrait so that the two characters are easy to distinguish from each other on the map?

Yes. Just let us know your username, character name, and the portrait you want, and we can make the change as long as the number of requesters doesn't become overwhelming (and if it does, that's just a sign that we should offer an in-game portrait change tool).

That's an intriguing possibility. Another we've explored is offering a number of color variations on each portrait.

Good to know, I have a level 2 Nix True Bow and I would like to change his portrait to this one.

Is there a portraits gallery? The one in the news link just takes me to the characters page :(

We don't have an in-game gallery yet, but we've posted them all on our Facebook page here: http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set= ... 087&type=1.

The album I linked to is public; you should be able to view it without a Facebook account. If that isn't working, we'll find another place to post it.
