This round's theme is portraits for non-joinable NPCs! The winner(s) of this round will receive one free copy of BG:EE as well as one free copy of BG2:EE when it is released. In addition, your artwork may be featured in The Candlekeep Library! For a recap of the rules, please see this announcement. You do not need to sign up to participate, but we'd love it if you did.

Note: Participation in prior rounds is not required to participate in this one.

The world of Baldur's Gate is filled with memorable non-joinable characters that stay with us long after the game is over. However, few of them are lucky enough to have their own portraits. Round V asks you to draw portraits for those without, such as Black Lily, Shandalar, Davaeorn, Marek and Lothander—anyone except the likes of Drizzt and Elminster, who are famous outside the series and already depicted in a lot of art. Portrait guidelines are the same as before. If you choose to draw more than one, each will count as its own, separate submission.

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.

Submissions must be original work; photomanipulations will not be accepted.

Ending Time
This round will end at 12:00 A.M. CET on May 2nd.

Note that this is two weeks longer than previous rounds.

Ready? Set? Draw!
