Ineth's collection of Icewind Dale style portraits -- Volume I: Canonical classes and races

This is a collection of additional portraits for Icewind Dale: Enhanced Edition, which fit in with the original portraits that come with the game. It is part of the following set of portrait collections:
IWD style portraits:‣ I. Canonical classes and races  (Fighter, Paladin, Barbarian, ... , Halfling, Half-orc)
‣ II. Characters from other games  (BG1, BG2, PST)
BG2 style portraits:‣ I. Real-world cultures and ethnicities  (Vikings, Black people)


IWD:EE comes with 59 built-in portraits. That's more than most games; but due to the large number of possible character build combinations (class + race + gender), any given build doesn't have a lot of suitable portraits to choose from.
This collection tries to remedy that by adding more portraits for all the classes and races officially supported by the game, using a similar style as the built-in ones.

Please note that I did not paint these portraits - they are pictures which I found online, painted by various artists (see the Spoiler boxes below).
I merely turned them into IWD style portraits by cropping them and applying some post-processing.

Portrait layouts



For each portrait, three files are included.

The first two are the normal character record screen and side-bar versions, cropped like the original portraits.

The third is an alternate version for the side-bar, corresponding to the "Zoomed in side-bar portraits" component of my IWD:EE Portrait Variations mod.

See the included readme files for details.
