Campaign portraits again

Post by Pickslide »

Wesnoths looking better and better now graphically, and I still feel like the portraits for the flagship campaign don't fit.

I was gonna just recolor the ones I had originally, but I decided I was too bored of that line art so I redid the 6 current portraits again. I think they're far better than what I was doing before, and I think they look great in game.

I have sketches for the orcs and elves that talk in the first mission too, and I can do those up if these 6 are well recieved and all.

Those are amazing!

I agree with Mkgego about Delfadore and Asheviere. Asheviere's face looks a little manly. Delfadore looks good, but its just an odd stance for dialogue (looks like he is about to cast something) Delfadore talks so much in the campaign and in the Tutorial that I could see him having multiple portraits if that were possible.

In any event these are all great and they gots my vote.

Kalenz' ears are a bit too pointy, even for an elf. But these look great.

Uhm, not to be rude or anything, but one campaign that could really use some portraits, is that "Dark Hordes" campaign. About the only person who would need to approve those would be Circon.

And it could also use a few campaign story pictures, too.

If you did a good job on them, they would likely be accepted without contest.

Kalenz and Konrad are awesome, but a few things bother me about the rest.
-Asheviere's face looks distorted.
-Li'sar's armor and clothing looks nothing like her unit graphics, and her face is a bit too flat.
-Delfador is in a really weird position. He looks like he's in the middle of a fight or something. He ought to have his staff on the ground.

Thanks for the compliments, I realize this board has some tough critics so I appreciate it.

I realize there are other campaigns that need portraits, but httt was the only one when I first started playing and the portraits felt so out of place I really want to put something in that isn't so inconsistant with the mood and dialog. No offense to fmunoz, because the current ones are good but they just don't fit. Anyway, that was just the strongest impression I got when I started playing.

I think Asheviere had bushy eyebrows..so I tried to fix up some of those things.

Lisars armor is similar to the battle princess, so I think its ok.

I guess I could do another Delf, but I don't know if I feel like rehashing him again right now...

Anyway, heres a generic orc guy from the first mission. I've got some elves coming when I get to it...

Lisar's nose (standing still portrait) looks funny. Maybe it should move to the right. I can't really say what is wrong with it. It's like her cheek goes to where her nose should be.

And why do all these Li'sar portraits have her in armor? She's got negative resistances to physical damage, what's this armor stuff about?
