View Full Version : BG II NPCs

2006-10-09, 05:06 PM
Does anyone have a link to good fanart pictures of various Baldur's Gate NPCs? I'm a faithful fan of the game, but I recently tried to find something and... and there was almost nothing. I can't imagine that there'd be no more than 2-3 passable pics of characters like Viconia, Jaheira, Minsc or Keldorn.

They were originally made for NWN, but they're still in a picture format. May need some reformatting for what you want, though.

Loopy, you play NWN? Avast! Online account is...?

[@Loopy and Thread-Starter:

The type of file NWN uses for portraits is actually unopenable with most image programs, such as PAINT and ADOBE programs. Perhaps one may work, same as with the 2da and erf files they have. NWN uses mostly special files, so it really needs to be reformatted, or you could do some save imaging and google imaging.]

The online download portraits are TGAs, I believe, and can be reformatted with Irfanview (which is free; there's a link in the forum guide to SodiPodi). For example, I just converted some elf (Aerie?) into GIF:


Alas, Daedrous, I haven't played NWN for quite some time. I believe my login is LoopyZebra, though. I just remembered the mods on that site.

Ahh, excellent, I see.

Ah, thanks... I was looking for something closer to fanart or full-size portraits than this, but at least it will be useful when I go back to NWN :D .

Here are those that I found so far, all pretty much on one site though :(

Oh and there's also a minsc portrait I just can't help but post: http://ewancient.lysator.liu.se/pic/fanq/j/e/jeregus74fq/minsc.jpg
I usually don't keep him in my parties that much, but he's a great character.

Enjoy, people!
