Query as to 3D character portraits and monster small pics

When I do more portraits and small pics, what would be best for you to use?

Please don't be confused by my use of two different terms - I mean the same thing, I just like to call the ones that of PCs and NPCs "portraits". :)

I voted for the 1st option. In addition, maybe you could post optional backgrounds (rooms, walls etc) as small pics... That would allow users to put the characters in front of whatever BG they like...  :)

Alpha - all the way. That way, if someone decided to put this on a background, there are no odd color bleeds from another background that has to be altered.
