hey hello I'm new here, i edited this, but I think look very ugly, stella with anette pachinko does not look good, I think it's better as it was, I just I went around the neck a little with photoshop, but I'm not very good at it, I think someone could improve it

https://imgur.com/a/DxK9tKu

well that's how it look

.... and now... i fixed some small details, if it's any use, her eyes are a little stronger in color, just up a little saturation :P and the neck is no longer brontosaurus

The shortened neck on Stella does look good :)
Might fit better on the limited space of the portraits to have more of her in the pic.

Hi, I just found character portraits ripped from "Grimoire of Souls", maybe they will be useful for you (there are a few I never saw before):

By the way I love this project, thank you for your hard work!

Dam, Syd!
Those portrait rips are just what I was hoping for! (Damn I love the Genya Arikado portraits, they're so good!)
I feel like these ones cover pretty much the remaining portraits, and also give us different views into each character, which we could rework into other portraits to have a bit of variety, while keeping everything in the same artstyle.

For example, for Charlotte, we can use the 2nd one (side view) in that rip for her text portrait, and work with the other 3 for other portraits. The same applies for Jonathan's.

@JohannGralog, what do you think of these?

That's great, I found them accidentally and I thought the same thing. :)
I read this discussion a few hours before finding those rips so I remembered you were looking for different pictures of Charlotte and Jonathan.

I scarcely notice a difference.

That's some stellar stuff to work with.

I'll cook up a portrait for each of the Charlottes and Jonathans this weekend, and see if the stuff I based on the GoS wallpaper Charlotte needs replacing.

It was nice to be mentioned but he chose a pic that wasn't changed much.

Wallpaper Charlotte isn't in the assets, so I can't rework that.

Menu portraits (255 max and 15 max respectively. Didn't know the restrictions)



I don't think anyone mentioned this but the charlotte here doesn't look like the other ones. Needs some tweaking.

Went ahead and implemented the new base portraits for Charlotte and Jonathan. I only implemented the first one of each character made by Johann during the weekend for testing.
Here's a quick beta patch:
https://www.dropbox.com/s/xo4izf2vxs6f3vw/Portrait%20of%20Elegance.xdelta?dl=0

Some things worth noting:


1) The problems mentioned in this post still remain:
https://www.romhacking.net/forum/index.php?topic=22445.msg380783#msg380783
So that means the Dual Crush images, Death and both Loretta and Stella's portraits still have some problems to be worked on. For Loretta and Stella, perhaps shortening their necks could help, as well as recolouring them in a way in which the heterochromia for their eyes can be better seen in-game (same for their skin tone in their vampire form).

2) All of the portraits for Menus and the mini portraits mentioned in this post aren't implemented yet:
https://www.romhacking.net/forum/index.php?topic=22445.msg380926#msg380926


3) I would perhaps recommend using some of the extra images from the Grimoire of Souls to be implemented into the Menu remaining images (or maybe even the Credit big portraits), to keep everything within the same artstyle and to not collide as much between each image.

4) These portraits haven't been implemented yet in the patch I made:

I haven't added those at all, because I want to be sure the import of the portraits I made are working fine so far in-game before attempting anything else.
These ones could very well be reworked into what I mentioned in point #3, for Menus and Credits portraits, or if you guys have other suggestions, do let me know as well!

I'm getting an invalid delta error when I try to apply this.  Can you please provide a checksum for the delta and for the ROM you're patching against so I can rule out file mismatch problems?

Edit: nevermind, I guess it just didn't like the version of xdelta I was using.  I tried it again with a different patcher and it worked fine.  Huge improvement to the in-game portraits, so far it looks great!  Can't wait to see the final result with the excellent artwork you guys are making.

edit these images of stella and loretta, but also try to make them small but when indexing them in photoshop, they are very ugly, compared to the previous ones, they seem very pixelated, could someone else reach out to fix them?  :P



    16 colors

    16 colors

i hope it serves something  :)

edit:

well, I did this too so that they are complete stella and loretta ... I think



16 colors  16 colors

hey hello again, sorry for the double post, edited this, well they are only the mockup with better color, so that when indexing in the game there are no problems with the colors:

             

and these with indexed in photoshop with palette of 16 colors, I do not know which option is better or serves better for the game

              :P
