Default Portrait Makers Requested!

Imperium now has an option to insert your own warrior pictures for your 3 main warriors, so i'm sending out the word to renderers out there for warrior portraits!

Size is 285x430, and we're needing as many as someone can make. Some of them may end up in a future version of the game, or can be downloaded for use in your Imperium copy.

Software used or style isn't important. Feel free to post if you wish to help!

Well, this feature was in the current build, nothing new since yesterday afternoon. A newer version (1.2) with a few new features and non-essential bug fixes should be out for full version people in the next few days or so.

Do you have a background in mind? I have quite a few renders that I did for a CBH add-on that never saw the light of day outside a diary that I could easily repurpose

EDIT: Sorry, ignore me. Realised that this is Imperium, all mine would be suitable for Arcadia. Sorry.

Any warrior types with armor would be very suitable for Imperium that you can repurpose, actually.

Oh, ok then, I'll put some things together over the weekend

EDIT:
So pics like this (suitably resized & rebackgrounded) would be of use?

MJ: Love them! New backgrounds and such, maybe a few without armor too, would be great.

To use them in the game, just replace the existing pic1.jpg (for warrior 1), pic2.jpg (for warrior 2), etc. in the existing install with your desired pics, naming them the same of course. They'll show up in game automatically.

Not got many armuorless guys, but here is a load of portraits to be getting on with











As you can probably tell, these folks were destined to be in the Middle Ages I've included the background I used incase anyone else wants to use it

Very nice work MJ! I also have another person on the forums who is working on some portraits as well that are really cool coming soon.

Coincidence of coincidences, I was just putting together my first post. Here's the first 9, plus the backdrop I used. I may or may not have just googled 'sand' to make the backdrop.




I have limited resources for weapons and armour, so expect a lot of shirtless sword & shield guys. Plus the odd random bloke bringing knives to a swordfight.

Here's another 6. Also, I found an axe.



It's proving pretty easy and fun to take my old wrestling/mma renders and repurpose them. Change the outfits. Change the poses a bit. Change the hair if I feel like it. Relaxing.

Self: Love the pics! Great job changing things up a bit here and there. These are ideal for the discerning Imperium player to use for portraits if they desire to do so.
