And then the Discord server exploded. Too much speculation overload. "Is it close to release?" "Is it not?" "Why not a game mechanic blogpost?" "But where is my changelog?" "Does David likes potatoes?" Those where the confused question flooding the general chat.

Glad to see faction portraits are getting "Hegemonized". I like the new portraits.

I do like potatoes.

Next thing you know it will be Attack of the Killer Tomatoes Potatoes around here.

There any space potato mixing and matching for full helmeted portraits or is it just not worth the effort at that point?

portrait_hegemony11.png Looks amazing!  Such emotion and intensity, and solid "last person you want to mess with" vibe.

Thanks for the post!

Will we also be seeing versions of these portraits overhauled for Sindrian, Persean, Tri-tach, and other factions?

I hadn't really thought of it. One exists already of course - the pirate helmet portrait based on the Hegemony helmet (which I imagine came from pirates stealing some Hegemony equipment).
I suppose a few of these could make sense if the space suit in question makes sense to have civilian or faction-branded versions.

Thanks! What's crazy is how quick that helmet sheen drawing came together, just a few touches with an airbrush and then scratches with a small brush. Sometimes the art just flows.

Just so Hegemony COMSEC doesn't redact me, all I will say is that the pixels you refer to were not in any way derived from the autocannon sprite.
- And thanks!

The Sindrian Diktat has received a unique portrait set for 0.9, though I believe it has some generics to pad it out, and I don't think I will fully factionify anyone but the Hegemony for 0.9. (There are also some minor details about how factions use portrait sets that need to get sorted out a bit, because there are both military and civilian characters in factions... )

Shredder with spikey helmet resembles Doomguy's evil twin.  I like Doomguy best.  Doomguy appears rather generic compared to other Hegemony portraits, unlike Ryu (guy at the upper left) or Adama (or Q3A's Sarge).  If I did not see Doomguy next to other Hegemony portraits and used by Hegemony, he could easily pass as a generic mercenary, unlike Blue TriTach power ranger helmet boy.  I would not mind seeing an evil red power ranger pirate guy to compliment Shredder.

Will there be specific portrait variants for different ranks within a faction? For example, the admiral of a huge fleet probably has a ton of medals and a fancier uniform compared to a patrol commander.

Flipping the new portrait horizontally has got to be the fake moustache and glasses of portrait edits

(...Not sure what I meant by that. Nothing bad, honest!)
