@Dekken:

Thanks. Sorry for the late reply. I was looking for some more images.

Ta-da!

Edit:

Sorry Mikoto was pretty small.

It was tough finding a good picture for Michelle/Imitatia. I ended up doing her fake identity.

Couldn't find a good shot of Sting.

@Daniel_Newton:

Great job! For the Exceeds, I did full body shots. I couldn't do mug shots. Is that okay?

Man, I'm not satisfied with these shots. I want a full head shot, but I suck at doing screen caps. The official art is mostly game art, so the pastel style is a little weird. We'll stick with anime.

I was experimenting with Akiho's shots. I was zooming out to get everything in it while the first shot is more of a zoom in to get most of her face in the upper box. When Frau or anyone gets a good pic, I'll do her.

More added:

Also, I have one for Saki Miyanaga but I don't know which is the main page. Either Saki or the Saki Miyanaga page.

@MrXD: I marked the duplicate for deletion, use this page: Saki Miyanaga.

Some portraits for One Piece characters:

I hope Enishida and Daisy don´t look blurred, I had to enlarge the screenshots in order to make the portraits.

Good job as always! You're fast. It takes me a while to do these. I wish I can do more Fairy Tail shots. I got some of the guild members. I'm missing Vijeeter, Max, and Reedus. Maybe Kinana and Lisanna.

I couldn't get a good shot for Frau. I wanted to include her pigtails! It makes her portrait look cuter.

@MrXD:

Awesome job, dude!

@Daniel_Newton:

I dig 18's look. Is that when she says goodbye to Krillin after Krillin wishes her bomb to be remove?

@takashichea: I realise it's not always easy to get the right size images, but if they end up looking like these two as icons they're maybe not worth doing until you can fine better images. Not trying to be mean and you know I appreciate the effort, just something to keep in mind.

Couldn't resist doing some extras for Katja-sama. Feel free to make additional portraits for characters if you like, just make sure they're good ones. They can be useful for a bunch of things.

Some other stuff:

Also been making some manga profile portraits which are great for the character section on a manga page. It's also easy to remove the background stuff so that's cool.

@Daniel_Newton:

Sorry, I shouldn't rush these things. I didn't notice the icons would turn out this way. No wonder you kept using icon and thumb formats. I'm so slow.

I got some new ones.

Edit:

Crap, Yuka's image is bad. Dang it. I better wait for a good image for Yuka. Kuro's face is too big.
