Elf because there are more portrait options for them.


Not very good reason since all those portrait sites provide us with tons of decent portraits of all races ;D
But it's my reason. Go rain on someone else, mkay?
When a man speaks and there is no woman to hear him, is he still wrong?

For the faithful romantic, no explanation is necessary. For the unbeliever, no explanation is possible.

 I can sort of see your point. I'm rather picky when it comes to portraits as I rather like to like they'e come from the set.

I've quite frequently used SK to chnge all NPC portraits so as they all match.

Anyone think the BG1 elf avatars look better than the BG2 ones?

Evil has a chilling stare

It does no good to question why
It does no good it never dies

The elves are always getting shafted. Ugly BG2 avatars and both NWN are not that great either.

Half-elves and dwarves.  :wub
happy happy joy joy

If I can stop one heart from breaking,
I shall not live in vain,
If I can ease one life from aching
or cure one pain,
If I can help one fainted robin
Into his nest again
I shall not live in vain...

I don't remember what the Icewind Dale elf avatars look like. But I assume they are better than BG2's.
