Racial Portraits

Racial Portraits - A community project!
[Posting on behalf of Maso]

Some of you may have seen these get posted on Discord as it was being worked on. But finally the collection is complete, with one portrait now for each of the races!

A big extra thank you to Stoicreader, The7DeadlyVenomz, Decameron, Shalooonsh, IronMic, SpyGuy and IsFriday for their help, support and donations towards this effort.

The biggest thank you and credit goes to the incredible artist: Aleksandrkademo - so if you fancy your very own character portrait then I'm sure he'd be happy to help. He was an absolute pleasure to work with on this project. You can find him here:

And onto the actual artwork!

(Some of these are PC's, however, I will leave it in the hands of their players if they wish to chime in about them in this thread.)

Without further ado:

DESERT ELF


DWARF


HALF-GIANT


HUMAN


HALF-ELF


MUL


CITY ELF

Love them! So many props.

If I had one wish here: Beef up that mul girl. Maybe it is just in my head but she should be a slab, not just muscly.

Awesome, everyone who made this happen rocks!

Would love to see this on the subpages at http://armageddon.org/help/view/Races, for instance while I am fond of the art at http://armageddon.org/help/view/Half-Giants and think it's cute, the art posted here definitely has that professional quality gaming manual feel.

Yeah, assuming Maso (and whomever else might be in charge of the fate of this art) is cool with it, incorporating this art into the website seems like a very good idea.

We could even use this same artist (or maybe a bevy of them) to further do illustrations for various aspects of Armaggedon, like the cities, villages, fauna, and landscapes, and shift that into the website as well.

In theory, as long as Armageddon owned the art (not these particular ones necessarily), we could use aspects of this art to create ads as well, which we could put on gaming sites.

A crowdfunding system for illustrating the website (and enhancing/updating it) and advertising costs could let us get Armageddon out there to people who'll want to try it.

We would have to be careful about using the art in advertisements or even putting it on the website because that could be considered commercial use. And I'm not sure if Armageddon has the commercial license for this art which would be considered different than just commissioning for a personal piece.

With that being said: thank you to Maso for heading this up. It looks great!

The mul is Canvas. She did some stuff.

And then I sat there going "really? that was it? that's so stupid."

I still think the best closure you get in Armageddon is just moving on to the next character.

Absolutely, the intent was that these would be available for the staff to use on the website and for any other purposes for marketing the game should they have the time and desire to incorporate them.

In regards to the licensing, this has already been discussed with artist and it's ALL GOOD. I also have the original, high resolution and editable .psd files for all of these. If we were a for-profit game then we would need to purchase the commercial license.. which is a whopping $10 per image or thereabouts.

The half giant almost looks demonic.

The dwarf has a book. It might only be for drawing, but I remain unconvinced.  Burn him!

Everybody knows that only evil, sadistic monsters read books.   Oh, and sorcerers to.
