So here is a portrait of Skwisgaar:

He's just wearing his long underwear because he's in front of a fire inside the tavern.

I gave him some old Soviet medals pinned to him, because I had the idea that maybe in his own crazy mind he thinks he is some kind of General?

Sure, go ahead with that. Detail helps.

We can model the story along it (i.e. include the medal part with him living in his own little world, nostalgy and such. Then the PC can ask him about the medal, even if that does not have any relevance to the quest, it gives NPCs more "life").

Do you want to do a portrait that can be used in-game, or just for the gallery?

I think in-game would be a little bit more stringent, in that the area behind him should not appear (because locations
could change, whereas a portrait should be more or less the way he normally looks). Also I think it would be better if it would be coloured. For gallery it does not matter that much I guess.

I have only one small complaint, hope you don't mind -  the eyes seem a bit "off", if you know what I mean. Even if I take perspective into account, I think his right eye (from his point of view) is a bit too big compared to the left eye

Anyone recognize the term "Crazy Swede" from The Thing?

Ok, so here is the colored version:



my coloring skills aren't very good, but oh well.

Don't worry, colours are like 99% always better than no colours.

Would you mind if I would try myself at it? I'd want to try to see if I could strengthen the "surroundings"
of him a bit, so that the shape appears thicker as a potrait (if you know what I mean).

Edit: He gave his ok on IRC for this. Let's see if my GIMP skills are any good...

Anyone knows where Gaspard linked his version? None of them was uploaded to the wiki so far, I think. And I don't find Gaspard's image for the swede guy

Edit: Oh wait... Gaspard made it for the snow shoveler guy.

I will upload the version of comscar here now.
