So, since I'm portrait nerd and I really like the style coh2 made them I was urgent to try to do something with them.

After I while I decided to try to make EFA portaits look a bit more like WFA ones, which are imo made better.

Ofcouse ideally everything should be remade with new art assets, but not only it will take hell of a lot time.

So pretty much what I did is - more or less ajusted size and colors of EFA portraits to look a bit more like WFA ones.

Ostheer



Anyway, so far I somehow managed to somewhat finish Ost portraits here they are:
v1


v2

Summer

Winter


Soviets



Tried my best, but they are litteraly were all over the place. Dont know if they look good or not.

Summer


Winter



You are free to use them as you want. In mod, as avatar or as your waifu.

You remind me about one of my old projects (don’t look on commander portrait, very old version)

Maybe it helps you and give some ideas

Just a quick tip; the original game assets have a sharpen filter applied to them. It's a pretty quick and easy filter to apply if you have something like Photoshop, but it goes a long way.

Is that a Panzerfaust or Panzerschreck rocket on the Pgren's back? Also, the vanilla Pgren portrait is missing the gas mask container, which you can poach from the Brandenburger portrait :)

They look great! Would be nice to see a before/after view too.

Personally I'm a big fan of the grainy/worn look of the portraits already in game. It gives the feeling that the commanders are battle hardened veterans. The rough handling is what you would typically expect from soldiers.

I think your renewed portraits would make wonderful avatars though where that feeling is not required.
