updated 5/25/13


1st row: Tamoko, Alternate Edwin with hair and with hood, Minsc with tattoos, a red-headed Khalid (to match his paper doll ;)), Baeloth from BG:EE (we'll eventually include him in the official mod even though he's a latecomer), a darker-skinned red-eyed Viconia, Sarevok with tattoos

2nd row: alternate Yoshimo hairstyle

<next 5 portraits are all new PCs for the 1/17 update>

<2/18 update = last two third row, first two fourth. Is this getting complicated yet??> Civilian, Lena, one of my OCs, Ser Gilmore.

fourth row, #3-4: Alaja belongs to :iconorionali: and Selene belongs to :iconinversereality-2:. The next six are all donated commissions of :iconmaelora69:'s. :)

Then as of 3/6/13: a couple more of my OCs: Cameron and Daymond, two half-elves belonging to vigovilingar & clairerosso... & the last six also maelora69's! fav.me/d5x6d52 Thank you all so much for donating your characters! ^^

4/2/13: an alternate version of a portrait I did for :iconlava-delvortel: and the last 7 are all :iconmaelora69:'s artastrophe.deviantart.com/art… :heart:

4/13/13: 7 new ones from

5/25/13: 11 new ones from artastrophe.deviantart.com/art… and also added in Tamoko ^^ artastrophe.deviantart.com/art…

The rest are either my OCs (both new and refurbished portraits), or unique characters created specifically for this project that you may use as your own CHARNAME! :D




for even more NPC portraits... or head to Spellhold Studios for the official mod!*


*This package contains new portraits that didn't fit in the mod, but there is also some overlapping... ^^

CLOSE-UPS: (sorry thumbnail limit--the rest I included as in-text hyperlinks ^^)

So I've noticed that allot of the portraits in the above image are not in the 2.1 download. Is there anyway I can get them?

I purposely packed them together so no one had to search around through dozens of submissions and download a bunch of separate ones. I would imagine it's vastly easier to delete the ones you don't want than to spend time browsing through piles of them... ;)

I suppose you're right. This is actual an adventure into the multi-player and my friend doesn't want to download a lot of images in order to get a singular one. 
I really like these so I will probably end up downloading them anyway. :D

Hi artastrope, beautiful work. This is going to be a silly question... as I am new to using this site. How do I download your portrait pack. I notice you say to download the bitmaps... but I don't see where to do that from... most likely just not seeing the download link.

Excuse me, I work with a wiki. (Non-commerical, Non-Profit) and I am interested in this for a number of articles I need images for. I was curious if I could use these, with your permission, of course.

Hi! Thanks for your interest. (Out of curiosity, what kind of Wiki/could you link it? :D) and which images were you looking at, or did you need something from me aside from my permission? (Like larger files or something?)

whoops, sorry-- guess I never updated the description after the last update? I fixed it, but pretty much just the first row is NPCs, and the rest of them are just player characters or original characters from commissions... and the description IS a mess, I will admit it, but they are either named or have links to the files where they are named haha... and when I put up v2--probably sometime this month--I'll try to clean it up so it makes more sense. ^^ Most of them are getting included into the official mod, so the list here will be a lot shorter at least...

I wanted to thank you for all of BG portraits you made - they are great! :) At first I couldn't get used to new Imoen, but at least now Imoen and Nalia look different :) All of them are kind of...climatic.

Then I would like to ask you about commisions (not now, because I saw you are busy enough) - do you accept points, credit card and what's the price?

You're awesome! Keep em coming! Maybe one day we could use your portraits to all other NPCs with names, much like what Irbis awesomely did. We're allowed to do that right? Just as long as we won't release it to public WITHOUT YOUR PERMISSION OF COURSE! 500+ portraits is too much for any artist regardless of skill. But who knows, at this rate of how many you've already produced and in a few years' time, maybe. Wonderful as always...it goes without saying!

:iconartastrophe:
artastrophe Featured By Owner Jun 24, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
wow yeah who knows how many more I will have done in a few years? I don't know if they'd be the right kinds to all match up with those NPCs specifically, though, hehe.

(Yeah, 500 portraits is easily about 1k hours of work; I can safely say I wouldn't be able to pursue that without getting paid for it. x3)

but thank you! ^^ I do have a few more I can add on here, but I've definitely been focusing less on portraits lately. ^^;

:iconartastrophe:
artastrophe Featured By Owner Apr 22, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
that is a very good question!! :XD: When I first started doing these portraits (I think in October/November), they probably took me around 5-8 hours or so (and I know there were some that didn't cooperate or that I added copious amounts of detail to, so I tweaked even longer ;P), but lately (the last few rows), I've been able to do them in closer to two hours.

So I suppose that's easily a hundred hours altogether on the low end, haha... but it's really been great practice. ^^

Thanks a lot for you answer. Ill try to make some time for portraits too. Cheers!;)

You made Khalid look very elf-like here. Kinda funny to see him like this. Not in a bad way. He is just different than I my vision of him.

But Minsc looks like a nice guy with a warm personality and I absolutely adore this.~

Thank you very much!! ^^

Yeah, Khalid was pretty tough, honestly! And not just because his official portrait was so odd (angle, expression, etc)... it was just kind of hard to figure something out for him; I'm not sure if there is a perfect interpretation. ^^; And awww <3 Minsc. I just wanted to get a bit more of his goofy/lovable side across, since he looks a little too smirky/smart in his original picture. xD (I used Bas Rutten and Richard Kind as references. ^____^)
