Character portraits

I just started Shining Force 2 and the character portraits own. I think character portraits are my favourite thing about jrpgs. Having this one definitive image of a character that like deeply elucidates who they are. It rules. Anyway here are some cool ones from the start of Shining Force 2.



Pls post heaps

I’ve always loved Valkyrie Profile’s portraits but I only noticed just now that there are two wildly different styles at work here! The tones alone are light and day

Anyway I mostly dig the work of, I assume, Kou Yoshinari, with these oily, proud, somber characters, who fittingly look like they’re living through the first act of a tragedy

Max Damage

Die Anna

From the “Prat Cam” of Carmageddon

The Prat cam (also spelled PratCam ) is a feature on the HUD in Carmageddon and the Splat Pack . The top-left of the screen shows a “reaction cam” of the driver in his/her cockpit during the race. During the race, the player may smack the car, make it fly, collect powerups, etc. and the driver’s expression changes accordingly. A happy expression if an opponent is wasted, screaming if (s)he’s flying, or a disappointed expression if (s)he lost the race.

Max Damage was portrayed by Stainless Software’s resident nutter Tony Taylor, who was filmed as the team hit him with a pool cue to simulate collisions. Gentler treatment was bestowed upon 14-year-old Faye Morey, who was cast as Die Anna after auditions from high school students.

The prat cam can be enabled or disabled by pressing the P key during a race.
