I'm looking for a custom portrait to replace Foen's DDO image, and wanted something quite dark/gothic. I like the avatar on the ICE forums:

So that gives you some idea of what I'm after.

Anyone have any suggestions/recommendations? I'd be happy to commission something, if the quality was good.

Lets hope I can whip something up. :) The lords know I need both a distraction from my crappy job and a way to pay you back for all the help. :)

Heh. I just joined this forum and stumbled across this thread. I am actually a commissioned 3D artist. If you would like to see some of my work you can visit me at darkgoddessnight.deviantart.com.

I haven't forgotten you Foen. Getting to it, but it is slow going since I'd have to actually get (gasp) time free from GF and family. :) Not an easy undertaking when you have only one week free before christmas and then work your way through 23rd to 31st.

I could add a mempo and a more custom helmet if you want.

Thanks Oberoten, he looks charming.

I was after something a bit more gothic and grimy - maybe it is better suited to 2D rather than rendered art? By the way, what is a mempo?

A mempo is a Japanese face-mask, it can be pretty plain or very detailed.

... hmm...I think I hate myself for the example but : Shredder from TNMT ?

Don't know the gentleman. What is TNMT?

TMNT = Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

Although over on your side of the pond I believe they were forced to rename them Teenage Mutant Hero Turtles because some strange laws forbid the use of the word Ninja in a kids show.

Thanks very much for your efforts, Obe, but I think I'll look for a 2D drawing rather than a 3D one.

Cheers

HeHe what's wrong with Mr DDO Dwarf? every time I see him reminds me of the old days of DDO and how I waited 2 years for what was a flop in my mind. Fun during the beta but once you realised how little there is to do you lose hope :(

Ahaaah.

LOTS of character-portraits options... the old Forgotten Realms Unlimited Adventures site. :)

Be aware that they'll likely need to be converted from PCX to PNG. :)
