In Vanguard, the paper-dolls used on the Vanguard Players web site are called Portraits.

Basic Portraits

You can take portraits of your characters in Vanguard with the /portrait command. Just switch your character’s appearance to whichever sphere you want to take a portrait of (Adventuring, Diplomacy, etc.) and type /portrait.

If you are on your mount, a mount portrait will be taken. You can also force your character in to a combat stance by typing /forcecombatstance on.

These portraits are placed against a pre-set background and automatically uploaded and added to your character’s profile page on
