12/26/12: IT'S OFFICIAL! Thank you all so much for your patience. <3 Head to Spellhold Studios
if you want to download the separate versions; it even contains extra bonus material!
Extra-special awesome thanks to
who has developed a handy mod to install this package for BG/BG2/BGT/TuTu
(the BG:EE files can be downloaded here
). Believe me when I say this project would never have been completed without him; not only would it never have grown to the size it is now, I'd still be fiddling around with these endlessly. Which I may still do, unrelated. xD But he kept me going these last few months as this project devoured all my free time... I'm not even sure I can thank him enough. But whew, we finally have something to show for all our hard work! (And at the very least, I got to make a new friend. ^^
I must thank
as well, who convinced me to turn a couple random portraits into that first batch of 13--which has since multiplied past all common sense. And thanks to everyone who commented and faved that original submission; you've all helped to give me the encouragement and motivation to continue with this! SO HUGS FOR EVERYONE
The .zip file included here is divided into BG:EE and the original BG saga with different-sized bitmaps in each one. But it might be easier to install using the mod + you get some never-before-seen ToB character portraits, hehehe... [link]
I hope you all enjoy it!! I'm probably still going to update; with my obsessive perfectionism, I feel like I need to leave a disclaimer... some of these I was able to spend all the time I wanted, others I hurried a bit... or it would never have been released at all.
(And then I had to go and learn a bunch / improve over the course of them, so I want to go back and apply my new techniques to some of the older ones... It is probably obvious the order I did them in. xD) for alternate versions (Sarevok, Edwin, & Viconia to name a few) as well as additional portraits for your Player Character:
