Note: Participation in prior rounds is not required to participate in this one.Theme
In Baldur's Gate II, we get to visit the drow city of Ust Natha in the Underdark, and we do so disguised as drow ourselves courtesy of Adalon. However, our portraits remain unaltered which, from a roleplaying perspective, is kinda awkward. For our third round, pick any number of joinable, non-drow NPCs (BG II preferred) and draw an alternate portait in drow disguise for them. If you choose to draw more than one portrait, each one will count as its own, separate submission.Guidelines
Submissions must retain the style of the original Baldur's Gate portraits and the aspect ratios used in BG:EE. All three sizes should be accounted for (large = 210x330, medium = 169x266, small = 54x84), but higher-resolution portraits are welcome so long so they adhere to the in-game proportions. Please submit entries in BMP format.
Although multiple entries for the same joinable NPC will be accepted, we strongly encourage contestants to offer alternate drow portraits for different NPCs: This way, we may avoid ending up with several entries for popular NPCs and none for the others.Ending Time
This round will end at 12:00 P.M. CET on March 6th
