Skins/ Portraits?

After starting a new playthrough I decided to give Adaon a shot as my main companion. Long story short: I really don't like his portrait ^^

I was wondering if you could imagine giving us the option to change portraits for companions and/ or our characters, maybe even the option to change gender.
Preferably not ingame via some dorky barbershop extreme, but just via the main menu.

Also, while I absolutely despise games that sell boosts, gear and stuff like that, I'm more than happy to support games I love with the purchase of some extra skins (e.g. I spent more on Path of Exile the past 3 years than on any paid games combined despite it being completely free).
So personally I wouldn't mind having some extra portraits for heroes and companions available via some sort of cash shop. And maybe it's even possible for you to make some portraits available as a reward for certain achievments?

I know we are still in Beta and that kind of stuff can most certainly wait until all other content has been released, just wondering if that sort of stuff is even considered an option :)

ps: If you are going to release new portraits please give us some way to change them for existing characters.

Noted, and improvements will happen.

Art costs money, and this game was self-funded and homemade, so it has relied on open/free art for a long time. Now new art is being added, but all the effort and cost is being put into new content (sprites, sceneries, etc). I would myself love some of the old art replaced, but like you said, not until version 1.0 is out.

Regarding making paid "vanity" upgrades... I don't know, maybe. Certainly there will never be purchases that give any game advantage, as for visual ones, I'll think about it.

I say keep the companion portraits the same because it gives them character rather than just a generic NPC.

I also would like to say that whoever made these portraits are really great at making them look medieval old europe style painting. Exiled Kingdom gave me that medieval kind of age feel and I also like old art portraits that were made during that time. I would like to see more of these when I am making a new character. I think the art style really fits the EK theme.

What about an option to upload your own profile pictures? Would that be feasible?

I for one would really appreciate if this could be made posssible.
If not then more ingame portraits to choose from would be nice as I don't really like any of the current male portraits.
Not trying to say that they are bad, just that none appeal to me. Portraits in a rpg like this tend to become a real personal choice for me.
