Hello!

 

Here are several repaints (recoloring, nose changed in some portraits) of the BG2 portrait of Viconia I did in 2004. (I think at these forums though it wasn't called Spellhold Studios, yet.) Someone just told me they're gone from web. I don't know how to add it to the main downloads section but here they are for archival purposes :)

Is there a small portrait of the dark hair/purple cloak version? I'd really like to use that one for a PC.

Make one, it's easy :)

I was surprised, either, time runs too fast.

Attached, I'll fix it in the zip, too.

I like the part where she's green and yellow for no reason

Fantastic variety of shading throughout! I'd love to see the same kind of work on the rest of the BioWare crew :) I see most of the FR elven subraces represented in the skin tones, and I'm all about FR lore accuracy. Very cool!

Eric P., thank you, I tried to turn her into Moon, Sun, Wild and Wood elves thus colour and make up variations. Some of these can serve as human as well.

I'm sorry but I did it in times where I barely knew there was something like copyrights, today I would not repaint somebody's artwork without permission. I know these are Bioware property and they do not care, so the case is clear (and that's why I re-post these) but that's all.

 

Almateria, she is blue in original for no reason ;) If you've seen Bladerunner there is where I've found make up inspiration for the wood variations.

I don't see a Moon Elf version.

Dark hair, normal skin, that's all as I remember. It would be the dark haired with purple clock whose small portrait was missing, good for a half elf and human as well. According to these descriptions:

http://www.dandwiki....oon_(3.5e_Race)

http://forgottenreal...m/wiki/Moon_elf

their skin would be very pale and eyes brighter than I did, so we can treat her as a half elf. Hmmm, maybe I'll try to brighten her skin.

Moon elves have white skin tinged with blue highlights around the ears and chin. Their hair is silver-white, black, or blue. Their eyes are blue or green, with gold flecks.

There are even more colour variations in the wiki descriptions. Anyway by a chance I've found a larger portrait from this set via Google but on these forums XD It looks like I've lost all the G files (the largest ones visible while choosing a portrait in game), but someone had at least one of them on their computer and posted in a thread at SHS forums, so here she is :)

Forget that D&D Wiki description. It's crap inconsistent with D&D canon.

 

Yes, lightening/brightening the skin might do the trick. Should be a nice alabaster or porcelain white, tinged with blue, in the same way a Copper Elf's skin is coppery with green accents.

Consistent or not I managed to keep a purple-eyed variant ;) as Daenerys Targaryen from The Song of Ice and Fire, why not  :shifty:

That's what I did, though it took me longer than I wanted so even if it's not what you imagined that's all I'm going to do. She looks very pale in the game but works. Silver haired with green and blue eyes, and as I wrote above Danny from the Game of Thrones as a purple eyed bonus ;) The blue eyed variant has got more blue hues in skin.

Plus one trial made form the Sun elf (better face shading, but not light enough) and a few extra outfit colours:

ZIP file added in the first post. It includes the largest variants of green and blue eyes, so if anyone wants to alter it more go ahead, just remember to credit the source (link back here), so others can find the original recolors, too.

I don't know where the description in that Wiki article comes from, but there's no precedent (at least not before it was written there) for Moon Elves with vampirelike qualities.

So...very...beautiful... :D Those Moon Elf portraits are fantastic!!! Would be nice to see some with the other hair colors for Moon Elves, but this alone is superb!

Thank you, glad you like them. I don't have time for it now, it has to wait for a better moment or maybe someone else will do :)
