I agree with the beard thing, how does one create a design for a guy described as having a purple beard, and not give him a beard at all??? I don't really like any of the designs but this one is terrible enough to make me comment.

Wow I love the Sun Ce portrait! He just looks so cool and awesome. I'm sold. Wondering about turning it into an avatar! :lol:

Yes, the first one I really like

That sense of charisma in the smile just feels so Ce, the beard looks nice, the tiger pelt is a nice touch, the armour and the robe mixes well. Skills, Little Conqueror is in there, Devastating Roar is nice nod but really curious about how Blood Fury will work

He's stolen Dian Wei's dual halberds.

There is something a bit bland about it? I had to look twice to find the bells and on paper I like the armour but there is something a bit... lifeless in how it is done, I do like the nose though. Skills don't quite feel Gan Nng but might just be me

Zhou Yu is up next!

I'd guess the next will be one of the Lu viceroys but I am unsure if they'll skip Su and Meng to go straight to the more popular Xun.

Not a fan of all the blue, also Dynasty Warriors has conditioned me to demand long hair from Zhou Yu :lol:

I mean, he is supposed to have been a beautiful man right? These guys seem to be going for realism in a big way which mostly should be fine, but certain portraits are just totally off the mark based on the historical descriptions we have.

I don't mind Zhou Yu, looks a bit too derpy though. And kind of looks like a custom-made ROTK portrait splicing two dudes together.

Sun Ce is good, rugged is what they should be going for with more of these portraits.

Gan Ning is terrible. The face and everything else do not match at all, again it's like someone made a custom portrait in ROTK by sticking a civil officer's face on a tribal guy's body or something. I do like his little knick-knacks he is wearing but that face is asking to be punched haha

I think I have a different view of handsome from the total war creators and given that is a part of him, deducting points. I do like the panted background of sea and night, the clothing looks rich and suited (blue is odd granted), I like the little details, the little patterns and rope, the scales on the arms, the belt. Really nice touch the Melodic Strategist skill, river one also nice, others don't quite seem Zhou Yu

His nose makes me think he has been punched
