Warcraft II Insp Portraits by JINNdev Warcraft II Insp Portraits by JINNdev
That was an idea I had, to make portraits in the same art style of WarCraft II [link]
All done from scratch, just used the same palette.


It was a really fun project and I learned a lot from it! Hope you enjoy!

Glad to see you finished the last row. The first Orc in the third row looks great, the depth you've given to the teeth (especially the dark tooth on the top row) is really working. The fingers on the bearded guy in the last row look too short and too even in length. The orange used in the woman's hair seems strange to me, reminds me of Cheesasaurus Rex. There's a tad too much AA on portrait 2's sword. The nose on the elf looks a little off, probably because the nostril seems so high and separate from the rest of the nose. The ear of the Orc on the last row is too close to the face, and the ear of the praying man lacks much of a lobe, which should be a prominent feature on someone his age. The red face paint burns against the blue and green skin, some neutral colored AA might ease this, otherwise I don't know that there's much else you could do without changing the paint color.

Most of this is nit-picking, overall these look great. I think it's clear your pixelling has been improving, this might be my favorite pixel of yours (though I'm probably biased because I played the sh*t out of WarCraft II). kutgw.

Nice! Warcraft I and II are couple of my most favorite games (Warcraft I is my absolute favorite game). I still play both to this day and I rarely get bored with them.

Very nice, I like all but the person with orange hair (it's been so long I honestly cannot remember who that is).

Honestly though, I think that just has to do with how much they contrast to every other portrait.

Thanks pal, and I see what you mean for the orange haired girl, but I have no other colors to work with.. But I'm pretty glad with the result.
