Hi there, I managed to recover the password of my old account, so I am going to use it now.
In the meantime I am working on Khantrukh, he is not much different from the old one:

Ok, this is the new Khantrukh, I think:



I made a composition with the portraits so far, in-game size:

I love Khantrukh's new look. Very good work. Do you have portraits of the other in the same res than Khantrukh?

Of course, that is the resolution of the source GIMP files.

Could you make Khantrukh's hair a bit less glaring? It looks unnatural and a bit eerie IMHO. Other than that, great work face-smile.png

What I meant was could you provide a link to them. As for the others we have seen only in game screenshots

Here they are:



I think that the campaign could use both Boldreth's portraits: the first one before the start of the war (e.g. first mission, second mission before starting building military buildings), the second one after the start of the actual war.

Note: I cannot post the XCF file as an attachment.

thanks a lot: I really like Khanthruk as he has a lot of expression and experience in his face. Thron is ok I believe, although I would like to have a verion where he is looking at the player. I like the idea of having two images for boldreth. But still I believe the smile in the easy picture looks a bit silly. maybe you could try to make hios smile smaller so looks a bit more serious while still happy.
Basically having more pictures of each person would make for greater variety that is at least indirectly noticed by the player. I already tried this for empire but I am not an artist and so it ended with just mirroring tricks and moving the eyes, which looks not really good. Anyhow I would like to have the images in b21 as they are so good. (even if boldreth still has this smile ;-))
