Portrait Workshop: Bring Your Character to Life

1 point


When setting up a character for a new game, they can be crystal-clear in your head, but it can be hard to describe them. Imagine a tool that shows your character - including their age, gender, clothing, hairstyle, and weapons - so that the everyone can see them as well as you do. And not just one static image, but an image that can be customized again and again, to show the character in disguise, or with different weapons.

Now imagine being able to include those images on your character sheet, in World Anvil, or as an avatar for online gaming. Portrait Workshop that makes it easy to do just that.

You can get the Basic level, with basic artwork and simple customization, for $10, or the Basic Party Pack with 5 copies for $30. The Advanced level includes stretch goals, frames, textural backgrounds, name tags, detailed customization, and larger images. One copy is $20, and the Advanced Party Pack with 5 copies is only $60. If you're a publisher, it's even possible to obtain rights to use the portraits in for-profit publications at the $250 level. Check out the campaign before it ends on February 9, 2020.

About Portrait Workshop

Portrait Workshop is a mobile app for iPhone, iPad, and Android devices. It's not a library of pre-drawn portraits. Instead, it creates unique portraits from professionally hand-illustrated weapons, armor, gear, clothing, and facial features. 

First you select your character’s traits (age, gender, race, class, and beauty), and then select one of the displayed portraits you like as a starting point.

From there, you can change the hairstyle, weapon, clothing, and other details, until it matches your vision of your character.

You can dress your characters in a wardrobe of over three dozen garments suitable for a wide range of adventurers and NPCs, and layer up to five items of clothing to create a variety of different looks. Garments have professionally designed, color-coordinated palettes that can be changed. With the Advanced level, you can select each color individually.

Once you create a portrait, you can mark it as a favorite and come back later to update it with new outfits or gear. Keep multiple versions to show how your character looks in town, on adventure, or in disguise. You can make as many portraits as you want; there is no additional cost for each one.

I’m kind of confused.. is this to create your own personal character for a board game /RPG?

It's to make a portrait of a character for a board game/ RPG/ online game (or if you're a DM, a portrait of an NPC so the players can picture them better). Once you have a character with their stats, etc., this makes the picture part.
