Thank you for your feedback Taurus! I am glad that you like it. Here is my final version "Arthian.jpg", which can be comitted by someone with more might than me. :D

BTW why are most of the portraits from NR in Jpg-format :?:

Hey uhh ... Is Rakshas human? He has abnormally long teeth for a human ... but he doesn't look like a troll or an orc either ... I mean ... I've seen movies where battle scarred comanders looked similar ... What color should his skin be? And what's that band on his thigh?

but I have no clue what the band is, other than a rolled up end of his oh-so tight pants. I'd color it something that blends in and corresponds well with the surrounding colors, until someone tells you what it actually is.

He is supposed to be an orc. A dark greenish, brownish color for his skin would be in my opinion best, but you are free to use anything else as you see fit. Don't know, what this band should be. If it makes no sense to you, you can erase it.

Wesnoth orcs have brown skin. Check the other orc portraits.

We know. Sometimes people get born with some disabilities. Sisal is one of those poor kids. :cry:

But because she has one crippled arm, makes her much stronger on the other arm. Her sword arm. :)

Hey watch it! I am sure Sisal won't react very favorably to you mocking her. I am no autonomy expert, but if you think something is incorrect, then fix it :-)

Looks good. Yes they are in Jpg format. However, I am having trouble unpacking your file. Could you try to re-send it to me, or perhaps just send a larger version as a Jpg (I would rather have to downscale something then have it too small).

Unpacking? What is the problem with the picture Arthian.jpg? The other file is the original SVG file. A vector format which can be viewed and edited with inkscape.

I can upload a new version, no problem.

EDIT:
If Jetryl wants to do some pixel magic with it, before comitting i can give him an even bigger picture. He has just to say how big he wants, because Vector pictures can be scaled lossless.

Yeah, cool. To me the colors are okay. Which program do you use, to colorize?

I think that Wesnothian Orcs are generally browner than that, but then again, I don't know of anything that says they can't have some variance in skin tone, either.

On Sister Theta, looks cool. I like the glow effect on that one.

Here is a "more anatomical correct" version of Sisal. I say more, because the under arm is still too short and the bending of the left hand is most unnatural. This can only be fixed, if someone moves the sword into another position. I have done this correction in inkscape, so if someone wants to have the vector version of sisal.
