  • Comments: I’ve (very slowly) been working my way through some of the original NPCs, creating portraits that still blend in with the originals but incorporate details that are more accurate in respect to their roles and backgrounds, and are simply in line with my own imagining of them. In this case I saw a photo that immediately made me think of Imoen. Despite her often intentional childishness, she has a darker side just like the protagonist due to her heritage, and I wanted to capture a bit of both elements.

  1. stunning, just stunning. There is still an innocence in those eyes, yet a hint of the Bhaalspawn lineage. Really i am loving you take on the original NPCs. Can’t wait for your Jaheria!

    • Thank you, though this one has drawn a lot of (polite) criticism, as some on the BG forum thought she looked too old and/or too serious. Your interpretation is what I was aiming for, so I’m glad some people see it.

      It will probably take some time before I get to the various NPCs, as I’ve had less and less time for portraits…and so many to choose from!
