Someone else had a stab at this before, and their work ended up in a mod for VCMI. It features the complete set of official heroes, but it seems to me like the quality is more sloppy, while the ones in this thread look a lot more faithful to the original.

My personal opinion, while I find a few portraits and here there (from both sets of stable diffusion remakes) quite appealing, overall I still prefer the original ones.

But for the people who don't share my views, I'll leave here the links to the reddit thread where the other set I mentioned was made public, and the VCMI mod that includes it.

The VCMI pack you linked is made of AI portraits that aren't from the source I used, I think they made them all themselves and did much less editing or refining compared to RonFish! They look very much like first iterations of portraits generated from the super low res versions of the original portraits.

Some portraits look too clean IMHO, stripping them off their personality. Also, Elleshar looks like A Death Knight and Clavius like on ecstasy

Cool and interesting project though, with lots of potential!

I feel that cleanliness is what you get with very refined AI art, and since it takes away that stylised look that the original portraits have, I understand where you're coming from. They look infinitely more modern, yet the funky personalities that the originals had is kind of lost.

I look forward to keep updating this every month or two whenever RonFish posts updates to his page! I'll have them ready as soon as I see them posted

Only ones I would really replace are the CGI renders such as Roland Ironfist, since they didn't mesh in witht he originals anyways, and the terrible picture of Sir Mullich (even HotA had to change that one)

So, it's too bad CGI Adrienne isn't done yet.
