you have to create two files:
small one 48X32 pixels name h***s.pcx
big one 58X64 name h***.pcx
put both files in data folder(if i remember correctly)
the *** is the hero number. you can take it from the erm help

To customize the portraits you must have Shadow of Death or Armageddon's Blade.
put them in *heroes3 folder*\data\
The name for the large portrait will be Hpl###xx.pcx where ### is a 3-digit code for the specific hero and xx is a two-digit code for the hero type.
The name for the small portrait will be Hps###xx.pcx.

You can replace any portrait with any new portrait. So you could replace a knight picture with a picture of a necromancer if you desire. It's up to you.

The hero code and number range is:
sh = special heroes (000-008)
el = elementalist (000-007)
pl = planwalker (000-007)
kn = knight (000-007)
cl = cleric (008-015)
rn = ranger (016-023)
dr = druid (024-031)
al = alchemist (032-039)
hr = demoniac (056-063)
dm = heretic(048-055)<!--- be carreful, 3DO inversed
nc = necromancer (072-079)
ov = overlord (080-087)
wl = warlock (088-095)
br = barbarian (096-103)
bm = battlemage (104-111)
bs = beastmaster (112-119)
wh = witch (120-127)
?? = more special heroes (128-132)

The help page showing you exactly which hero has which number or you can just experiment yourself.

Examples:
To replace the 3rd necromancer hero portrait with a new one, name the two pcx files: Hpl075nc.pcx  and Hps075nc.pcx.

These new files will sit in your data directory and can be removed, renamed or changed at any time.

you can look here

thx ste

so if I wanna replace tazar, I have to look what number his pic has... Is it depending on the order in wich they are selectable at start-options?

Do I have to do anything further than put them into data-file?

PS:
here are my Mink and Prit portraits, how do u like them?^^

these are used for transparency and perhaps this causes the problem. try to use these pics from http://info.datacom.bg/testste/pics/
