Since Portrait Portal (http://www.karwal.dk/portraitportal/) is down, and probably gone forever, does anyone have it's portraits? I've been looking for them but haven't found from any other portrait-sites.

It would be a shame to lose them; probably best made portraits made for BG1+2.

I've got a few, but far from all.

I find that nearly all BG2-related portraits can be found here:

Lost Items had at least one (used with permission I believe)... might have others too.

Well this is a damned shame.

If you can't find them all on those linked sites, I might have what you're missing. I recall seeing a few names listed that weren't posted on the gallery (IIRC Fidel Castro), but beyond that I think I had the entire collection. The question is: Do I still have them? I dunno. I'll have to check...


My list contains the following BG portraits (don't have any of the IWD variants, sadly):

Bale
Bloom
Callisto (from Xena)
Carrey
Cindy (not a celeb)
Connery
Diaz
Famke
Halle
Heigl
Jack (Nicholson)
Jen
Jolie
Jordan (inspired my never-released-and-probably-lost NBA JAM soundset)
Jude
Keanu
Keira
Kim (not a celeb)
Leeloo
Mich (-elle, presumably; not a celeb)
Milano
Milla
Natasha
Norton
Rose
Salma
Sarah
Seth
Shannon
Stiller
Victoria
Xena

... and in another directory...

Arnie
Devito
Russel

I might have more buried somewhere, but that should be about all of 'em.

Actually, I lied. It seems I do have a few IWD2 versions. Seems I've got Arnie, Bale, Carrey, Connery, Devito, Famke, Heigl, Jack, Jordan, Keanu, Keira, Rose, and Stiller.

Anyway, if you can't get them anywhere else, I just uploaded them to RapidShare here: http://rapidshare.co...plete_.rar.html

You might be able to sortakinda salvage some from here: http://web.archive.o...portraitportal/

Click on the disk icon and it'll bring up a list of, well... at first glance nothing, but the zip files appear to still be there.

Lost Items v2 (I'm working on a v3). From the readme:

Faldorn, Imoen and Xan get new portraits courtesy of the very talented Karse Soze at the Portrait Portal... They are 'celebrity' portraits, but since I am not even vaguely interested in 'celebrities' they don't look at all familiar to me and fit the game well.

Click on the disk icon and it'll bring up a list of, well... at first glance nothing, but the zip files appear to still be there.

I can get some graphic elements from the old site but that's about it.

Thank you for providing those portraits, I should always save everything like that and not to delete them. You never know when they're gonna disappear from internet.
