Well as some few of you may know, the Dragon Age character creator has been made available for us to play with. It’s close to the Oblivion facegen style but seriously dumbed down (I miss the options). Anyway, I made a few characters (a dozen or so) and, whilst listenning to a Night Below session I got bored and decided to start doing party portraits.
This is my take on Helga (there weren’t enough plaited hair options). I did quite a good Jamroar as well but then remembered he was an elf (and I’d done him as a human/half elf, so he’ll need redoing).
But she’s not just a pretty face. She’s obviously been to the Patrick Moore school of acting since she can raise one eyebrow!
I like this one. It looks like she’s trying to look innocent after having done something mischievous (or daydreaming, I can’t quite decide).
Here she is saying something. She looks a bit disappointed with someone (perahps the same person’s asking for healing again).
This one looks alert, like she’s just noticed something, although there seems to be a slight sense of trepidation as if she’s not comfortable with her discovery.
And this one’s my personal favourite. It loks like she’s admonishing someone for some foul misdemeanour. “Oooh no you didn’t just…” It would be rgeat if this one could be used for a caption competition but we’d need to ask Lindsay to judge it.October 24, 2009 at 3:53 pm #618076
Oh, and Helga says “always look left and right before crossing the road.”
I’ll get a “Jamroar the human who is in no way related to Ellion Forgedawn” screenshot up in a bit too.
Here we go: Jamroar! Now I need to go and make an elven version.October 25, 2009 at 9:29 pm #618077
Leoven the Wizard
I was aiming for a slightly country bumpkin kind of look. I also had a good shot at trying to convey his general enthusiasm for everything in general.
So here’s a moderately neutral expression.
He likes to voice his opinion innocently (or is that ignorantly? :P)
Sometimes he can he serious and observant.
However, from certain angles he bears a disturbing resemblance to Clint Eastwood. I could’ve removed his beard and given him full, rough, heavy stuuble to improve the resemblance but it was unintentional (and it might not even be that strong – judge for yourselves).
And this one looks like he’s hailing the barman from his seat, whilst clearly having had a few too many already.October 26, 2009 at 12:56 am #618078Daniel

I like second picture of Leoven the best. 😀October 27, 2009 at 12:50 am #618079slightly_nauseous

Surely, but maybe she learned to play the xylophone as well.
Anyway, I originaly wanted to do these in order of appearance (which would’ve been Helga, Grumbal, Ellion, Gnosh, Tannien & then Leoven). They’re all finished but I’m still not quite happy with Ellion & Gnosh yet. Gnosh seems to have developed an inability to close his mouth.
So here we go, Tannien Mallingolaer
*Hopefuly Chris can correct me on the spelling of his surname*
Tannien, somewhat moody and perturbed by the world in general. I might remove the goatee but it seems to suit him (and he doesn’t look quite so downcast without it).
Quibbling over something.
Still quibbling but feeling self righteous because he’s right.
Serious, but slightly less downcast.
Complaining that he didn’t get to kill any goblins or go to fight the orcs yet.

Vindicated in the end.. 😆November 14, 2009 at 8:05 pm #618082
Gnosh here seems to have problems keeping his mouth shut. Seriously, it’s always open. This does lend him a bit of a village idiot look but perhaps behind that dim facade lurks a criminal genius. You never know.
He also doesn’t seem to have avery expressive face (maybe it’s the nose – I could’ve made it larger) so a lot of his pictures feel a bit samey.
Finaly with his mouth shut.
Looking a bit on edge (and there’s a hint of teeth again).

New session, new character.
Actualy the others are all done but I’m not happy with Ellion Forgedawn yet so he needs some tweaking. Anyway, Grumbal:
And here he is gloating (or sleepy, or just tipsy).
And looking down in despair at the party’s antics.
