You may or may not remember that I made a post almost a year ago in which I lamented the terrible state of Blizzard's default party portraits. And I'm not talking about the layout of the UI or anything here, but about the actual pictures, which largely looked like something from the early alpha of the game (at best).
Well, imagine my delight when I noticed the other night that they've finally been updated. I think it must have happened in the big patch but mostly went overlooked because of all the other stuff that's been going on.
Female tauren actually look like female tauren now!
And male ones don't look like someone hit them in the face with a hammer anymore either.
I think they've updated all the races, but I haven't seen them all yet (nor would I bother to take pictures of them all). I just can't wait to see what replaced that sickly green night elf with the bright red braids...
On an only vaguely related note, has anyone else ever thought that the character portrait for ooze mobs kind of looks like a dog?
I mean, I can see what it's meant to be, an angry skull embedded in green goo...
... but I swear, I still often see a sad dog face instead. It's kind of like one of those black-and-white pictures where you can see something different depending on which part you focus on.
