In the Simple Edit Resource thread (link in the signature below) at page 39 I recently made a simple edit of Sylvanas's portrait. I instinctively didn't like the empty eyes so I took the irides and pupils from some in-game human portraits and simply "completed" the eyes of Sylvanas this way.

Now, after I've watched some of the highest quality portraits of elven characters in the database I'm not sure anymore: no elf portrait displays pupils and irides, except very few whereby the eyes are carried over from the female elven villager face. Are elves supposed to have pupils at all? Or do they simply look better with "flashlight eyes"(no iris, no pupil, just a shiny particle before the blank eye)?
