    Back around 2000, there was an artist who did personalized character portrait renderings that were fantastic.

     

    I can't remember their name.

    Valthira Arkane, I believe.   She/he was in my guild  'Gaurdians of the Keep'  on the Drinal server.  =)

    Hmmmm, no that's not the name I remember - this guy did commissions and had a business.  They were amazing.  Sort of caricature style.

    Keith did the box art for EQ but I don't think he did caricature portraits. That's not really his style haha. Maybe the OP is thinking of Woody Hearn? https://forums.daybreakgames.com/eq/index.php?threads/old-comics.224264/

    I know exactly who you're talking about and was trying to remember his name months and months ago. It was driving me insane. I don't recall ever knowing his REAL name, but rather the handle he went by as a portrait artist for EQ. 

    I want to say the word 'fire' was in the name somewhere .... but that's all I got. Let me know if you figure it out, though!
