I’m reaching out to a few folks to commission cover art and an icon for my HG. It’s, perhaps, premature for my state of progress, but I’m thinking I should give the artist runway. Plus, I think it would encourage me to be able to look at. Some questions:
I know the functionality is included for images in a Hosted Game. However, I’ve played twenty or so HG/CoG and can’t recall seeing, say character portraits in a HG. I really enjoyed the ones Amy Wilkins did for VtM: Night Road. TL;DR: can I use art in my HG? Is there an example of an HG that has done this which I can refer to? (Beyond the cover.) Sorry if this is a repeat–I did a search and couldn’t find anything.
If so, are there file limitations (size, format) for those images? I found information about icons and covers, but not in-game pictures. And then, is there a limitation on total file size? I wouldn’t want to commission ten portraits and then not be able to use them.
Is there another question I should be asking about this which I am not smart enough to have thought of? If so, what is it? And what is the answer to that question?
I’m doing sort of a strange fantasy and I think images will help readers imagine what I’m describing, e.g. a frog dragon. Don’t know if that runs against the grain of the form. I’m in Austin, so there a number of talented local artists I think I could afford if I had enough information. Thanks so much!
