Awesome Tool: Character Portraits

There is a site that hosts a few thousand images, originally indicated for Baldur's Gate purposes, but excellently usable for PCs and NPCs in your own tabletop game.

Perfect for my Orc Barbarian!

(Obviously many of these images are copyrighted elsewhere and shouldn't be used in your own published materials)

What I really enjoy doing with these is roaming around, finding an unusual portrait, and building an interesting character concept from the image - like this guy, who is obviously a blind bard that wears magic spectacles of pink headband detection.

His name?
"That Guy."
Yea, it's Vietnamese... ish.

Enjoy!
