    Nalia does look like Drew Barrymore! I like Imoens BGII portrait much better, she looks cute. I always wished I could romance her. I don't care if she is my half sister or not.

    TCDale claimed she would start working on the ToB part right about now. Just have a few more years patience.

    This thread has some pretty awesome info. I would agree that Ray Muzyka looks a lot like Ajantis, and Edwin could very well be Greg Zeschuk..though he could be Coran as well. We need more detective work on this.

    Also, associate producer Ben Smedstad looks a fair bit like the head of the unpleasant gnome Neb.

    @Boaster you must be referring to the The Gorgeous Georgina.

    You mean those who like BG2 portraits better than BG1 portraits? 'Cause I've been saying the same for a while :D

    I don't know if I like the implications of being called a nut by a ever-hungry rodent.

    Holy smoke but that picture is amazing! *loves*

    On the topic of Imoen's face - apart from the fact that I was never very fond of BG1 portraits as a whole (strange coloring and even stranger lighting, and generally, not my fav style), I always considered Imoen's portrait to be the ugliest of BG1 female portraits. Yes, I considered Faldor's fierce scowl more appealing that that weird round thing.
    But recently I looked at it again, long and hard, and I said to myself, hey she looks exactly like my highschool friend, and she was pretty! What gives?
    So I looked harder and discovered what my problem with this picture was:
    1) Imoen is hunching her back, which doesn't look good on anybody, and
    2) She has the most unbecoming hair-do imaginable. The insane amounts of time and hair gel needed to get the hair to stick out on the sides like that aside, this hairstyle just plain doesn't fit her.

    And I discovered the power of good hairdresser years ago, when I had a trouble convincing myself to romance Jaheira for a change, until I found in the net an alternate picture for her:

    image

    The difference was staggering (at least for me - I have some weird problems with perception of faces, perhaps normal people don't see much of a difference) :P

    So now I pulled up a bunch of pictures, cut out hairs from them and pasted them on Imoen. Behold:

    image

    She suddenly looks much prettier, doesn't she? :)

    EDIT (25.11.2012) Later I did another version of her, one that would make her look younger and another one that shows how she looks after putting on that cursed girdle:

    I like my Imoen with a more pinkish or purplish hair :D But of the ones you posted I like the one on the top right and the on on the lower extreme right the best.

    I knew it - I freakin' knew it! All this time you guys were criticizing Viconia's portrait, you were dissing Cameron's wife! I totally knew it!

    Also: the mismatches with the pictures make it kinda hard to fathom who's who after them. So Quale and Tiax are Daniel Walker? Jaheira-> friend of Mike's; Branwen -> Juliette; Dynaheir -> Leanne; Faldorn -> Dean's wife; Imoen -> ?!?; Minsc -> Dave Hibbeln. Correct?

    Still need to know who's Imoen *misty-eyed emoticon*
  • ShinShin Member Posts: 2,345
    Nah, Imoen is indeed Dean Andersen's wife, Trent wrote that as well. The mismatches seem to only concern the specific image missing. It's weird, because Trent linked this exact picture in the post he made, but he must have been looking at a slightly modified one.

    So the question remains as to who is Jaheira...
  • Raistlin82Raistlin82 Member Posts: 256
    #4 is credited as a "friend of Mike".
    Funny. She looks exactly like a friend of mine.

    Maybe you're unknowingly only two degrees removed from the BG1 portrait artist.

    This thread is just hilarious.By far the thread that has made me laugh the most ;-)

    I personally prefer BG1. I think it has more to do with it being the first game of the Saga I played.

    Really like the new Jaheria picture. The hair always bothered me. Do you have these posted anywhere to use in the game?

    As for which portraits, I like the BG1 portraits more because they look like real people, not drawings. Not that the BG2 ones are bad, but they are darker (much like the game) and I prefer the 'brightness' of the first game.

    Oh wow. I can never look at Shar-Teel and Viconia again. They are clearly the same person, now thatt I know that. Skie, too, of course, but I see it more with Shar-Teel and Viconia. And, Garrick looks suspiciously similar to the default CHARNAME portrait (the paladin-looking male).
