Share your portraits!

Hey guys! I envy the portrait maker for Academagia who is obviously very talented to be able to capture such a wide range of personalities with the portraits represented in the game. Alas! because I am perverse at heart, her (his?) talent has inspired me to go all Frankenstein on the portraits and mix and match features to come up with new personalities and characters. I'm thinking I'm going to hold off on playing my next game until I replace a lot of the PC portraits and NPC portraits and maybe some professors.

 

 

I thought that maybe we could use this thread as a place to share our favorite custom portraits so that people who want to switch things up a bit can . . . using their own content and content generated by others. Like I said, the custom portraits I make use features from the originals . . . I just take a piece there and part here and mush them together in a new portrait. Here are some of my faves so far (haven't gotten around to boys yet, but they will get some love soon, but before them I'm going to make some truly wicked looking girls).

 

Please, share your favorites here as well.

To be fair, it is harder to make decently looking male frankesteins compared to girls as you can't cover up ears and any problems with long (well, longer than the boys) hair. :P

 

I agree on how amazing the portraits are, though.

Oh dear gods, I am creeped out by the (Not!)Philippe's hair.

 

The first girl could really be Lambert Cobo female edition.

 

Overall, good work.smile.gif

Yeah Leoshi, I was going for a young Severus Snape that actually shampoo'd and maybe cared about the way he looked sorta look there. Maybe I should add more highlights in it. Hair is hard.

 

So are personalities . . . especially when it comes to boys. All I can think of is boy scout and sullen. I'm working on a chubby dweeb with mommy issues (I'm pretty sure he has a lisp, speaks in the third person, and refers to himself as "Bernard the Magnificent" when he isn't being beaten up by Philippe), but he isn't turning out so good.

Thanks for the tip, Schwarzbart. I'll pm Mikka about what she might need. I wish I could mod. I'd totally add Bernard the Magnificent into the game.

I know other people have custom portraits. I hope they will share on this thread. Pretty please with a glamour spell on top?

I'm not sure if this is post-exams luck or what, but I did manage to add an alfa-layer that sticks. I use Gimp, a nifty little free thing, so not sure what it would translate into in Photoshop.

 

It seems quite possible to save an alfa-layer/colour as long as you save it as .png - previously I used .jpg as, I think, I was told that it was the type of pictures that the engine could read, but now I can tell you that png works too, I've just tested it.

 

 

I hope you'll forgive me for not posting the portraits I use, but I've realized my inability to manipulate with any skill so I use various pictures I've found across the web. None particularly academagiaish though. :)

 

 

I managed to edit one of your's though. Just add it to the resources, delete the .png end. With luck (and maybe a cashe delete) it should work.

 

Found here, because the forum doesn't seem to like png

Adrian!!! <3!!! Thanks so much for figuring that out. That's so awesome! I'm going to go try it out asap.

These are awesome! Can I put in a request for more Aranaz boys? While I love the portraits in the game, it's my personal opinion that the player-character choices for my favorite collage's male students are the weakest in game (still nice, but not up to quality with the awesome work the artist did).

 

As for me, I do need a male Aranaz portrait still, however I think I have to do it from scratch for it to be allowed in as officialish content. Otherwise, it's too similar. I appreciate both you and Schwarzbart thinking of me, though. <3

 

 

(As for making new students, it's really not as tough as it seems! Anyone can do it! :) ...If anyone wants me to write a tutorial on making them, lemme know.)

Reviving this thread here...

I might! I spent a day or so making this Vernin female from Asmita and Amanda's hair. I had such an awful time getting it to not crash the game (even after several cache deletes and complete re-installs) that I stopped caring about the white corners. Or the bit of Asmita's hair I forgot to cover.

I've also noticed that there is an odd and very noticeable change of.... style with the character portraits. Is there more than one artist responsible for the character/familiar art?

That would explain why Zoe Melis bears a resemblance to one of the Hedi male portraits.

Oh, nifty new portraits.

 

Hope you don't mind if I use some of these.

 

Here's my contribution. She belongs to no college. I just did a very quick edit because I was in the mood for a sinister-looking student slightly similar to myself in appearance.

It's been forever since I've posted on the forums, but I've been lurking. I haven't been able to play at all in the last year, but I've seen all these amazing portraits that you guys have added and I'm adding them to my own game. Thanks so much for sharing these! I'm really looking forward to playing with them.

 

Oh, and I'm eagerly awaiting the second year too. Whenever it comes out, I know it's going to make my week, maybe even my whole month!

Old thread but thought I may as well tag along the timeline. I mixed up a few portraits for myself and figured I'd share them anyway...pasty as they are.

Okay that boy on the left there? He is giving me a Professor Snape (Alan Rickman) vibe. Was that intended?

Thanks, glad you like :) of course the original pictures have a lot more personality but I can't paint that well.

 

As for the boy he was intended to have sort of a young Tom Riddle face! :D I guess they overlap in their gloominess!

Hey guys, I decided to make a portrait as well, a fairly simple edit, but I like it. It's just a switched head with blue eyes, a degree paler, and slightly redder lips.

I think she looks nicely arrogant and dispassionate which will fit my Aranaz student perfectly.
