    I was content with an ok look from the point of view of the default camera and as soon as that was achieved i touched it no more. The intended use was as a portrait from that camera angle and nothing else.
    Of course if you want different camera angles the pupils need to be adjusted quite a bit, just as you point out. This characters suffers from strabism if you watch it from the front, you're right. The pupils aren't even round because they need to be on an oblique plane to appear correctly from the point of view of the portrait camera.
    I understand that you would consider this more useful if you could freely set the angle of the portrait camera without it getting ugly, if i'm not misunderstanding.
    It can be done without a doubt and I certainly will now that you ask, but it was not my original intent.
    So much for my excuses. I'll be updating the post with more accurately made pupils that maintain a decent look from all directions at my earliest possibility.

    @Cuore - Right, to be frank I did not check it in-game, but merely in Magos. If they appear fine in-game, that's more than enough. Your technique is actually more sensible, and accurate to the way Blizzard handles things - most of the portraits featuring pupils have them look a little bit messed up from angles other than the intended one. If it looks good in-game, don't bother making changes! Although I still think maybe enlarging the pupils slightly might be a harmless improvement.

    Lol i already made them XD it's been super quick now you can change the camera without the guy's eyes becoming superweird. Just check back in 2 mins or so.

    Slight announcement: Models updated now. Applied changes to the original post.

    Slighter programmatic announcement II: Priest, Sorceress, Elven Footman, Elven Archer and etc are on their way in the next future. All depends on the amount of available time.

    Eye detail for elven units' portraits

    A little more detail to the eyes of the elven units portraits thanks to extremely simple edits.
    Instructions: Download a portrait, set its import path and enjoy. HE means High elf, BE means blood elf.
    Attached testmaps have the right path set up for one of two races:
    - high elf: high elf testmap
    - blood elf: blood elf testmap

    • SorceressNew.png Catturii.JPG Catturaaa.JPG Archor.png CatturaIII.JPG Swordsman.png CatturaIV.png
      files attached below the post

    • New pupils for elves

      Description: same as other elven portrait modifications by me. Adding well-defined pupils and suitable glow to high- and blood- elven versions of the vanilla units
      Resource Type: model
      Filesize: identical to vanilla
      Credits: (Credits to Cuore??? rly? nah)
      Path: no custom textures needed



    Note: for Kael'thas please refer to the post: Hive's Simple Edit Resources Thread
    NoteII: for a high elven peasant portrait please refer to the work of @ILH you can find at: Hive's Simple Edit Resources Thread
    Note III: for living Sylvanas, an edit I made previously adds better detail overall, so I recommend using that instead of making small upgrades to the vanilla Sylvanas's portrait. You can find the suggested portrait models here: Simple variations on Sylvanas
    NoteIV: [warning] the high elven dragonhawk rider portrait will probably not be able to be applied to the corresponding unit, because the original dragonhawk for the high elves has a built-in portrait camera. [NoteIV Errata corrige]: this should be no problem, see the correction in @Himperion intervention below (Hive's Simple Edit Resources Thread)

    Updatelist
    2017.07.27:
    • [addition] now Archer added to the bunch of improved portraits.
    • [update] added the proverbial elven eyebrows to the sorceress portraits.
    • [update] added elven eyebrows to the dragonhawk rider portraits too.
    • [addition] added priest portraits with eyebrows. Pupils will be considered in the future, for now I like them better without.
    • [addition] added swordsman portraits.
    • [addition] added villager portraits.
    2017.07.30:
    • [update] added elf ears and eyeglow to the villager portraits.
    2017.07.31:
    • [addition] added a High elf testmap and a blood elf testmap with portraits already imported to the proper paths, for ease of use.
    see also
    Here I list some high/blood elven models from the resource database, whose portraits I consider of particularly high quality, their authors are especially praiseworthy in my opinion, and as far as elven portraits go these works should be imitated by future models.

    As more are made, I'll add them to the above post.
    A little puzzled with the priest as he has flashlight eyes by default, it's possible it's not worth it to put pupils there.

    The shield of the Spell Breaker, and parts of his body with Phoenix skin. It's not much though, and just a few clicks away [REALLY FEW CLICKS AWAY].

    EDIT :
    I'll get an in-game screenshot tomorrow or so.

    • Silvermoon Sorceress

      Description: A little re-skin/work of the normal RoC Sorceress the portrait head come from the TFT version without the weird area on the mouth. I was thinking into getting a cape with the phoenix simbol but my skin request never gets attention. On the good side, there are three options, Blond, Brown, Black Haired, i suppose you can spawn different versions to make a city look lively or for an easter egg on your barracks.

    About this; the Orc Blademaster has a inner portrait animation, but it shows the external Portrait model. From this you can assume that the game has a priority for Portrait.MDX before searching for the model inner Portrait animations.

    You find me in agreement with you. That's some strange choice of the developers of The Frozen Throne. Being curious myself I googled this and there'su people on battlenet endlessly discussing why wardens have this eye color with no explanation.

    Although green is the way blizard went with maiev's eyes, I'll add a silver-eyed variant next.

    Well i remember that a Warden did indeed betray Azeroth by letting Gul'dan get to Illidan.

    I'm pretty sure this has little relationship to why the devs of frozen throne made maiev's eyes green. I'd say they wanted to have the eyes stand out in the dark of her helmet and standard silver eyes would have been too bland. Why green and not other colors, I have no idea beyond maybe someone thought green would be a color reminiscent of nature. Bad thinking because it screams "fel eyes!"

    Wouldn't be the first bad thought in blizz history.
