Last month we alerted you all to the Faces of Skyrim, an online exhibition that focused on displaying the absolute best of video game portraiture in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. This month the project released a second batch of portraits taken in-game. Prepare for amazement.

I just can't believe how this game has evolved. Not that Skyrim ever looked bad, but wow. These are spectacular. I could toss hyperbole at you all day, but you really should just click here and check out all of these pics. I've posted a selection below but all 18 of these portraits are spectacular in their own unique way. Some really inventive ones here — super interesting composition.
