    I'm planning to eventually do all characters, but I'll post them below as I continue to complete them! Keep an eye on this thread as I keep uploading, and feel free to post the characters you want done the most, so I know who's in demand.

    For now, I'm trying to keep the original feeling of the character while also putting my own touch on them. I might also take requests to change the style of the character later, but that would be after I finish everyone I wanna do first :)

    DOWNLOAD ALL FILES, or download individually below.


    Abigail, Round face variant (Planned variants: black hair)

    Leah - Lighter Hair Variant

    Penny (Planned variants: Pixie cut)
    Harvey - Bearded Variant - Shaved Variant

    • I recommend backing up the files you are changing. You can just copy the original files to a different folder.
    • Install variants AFTER bundles!
    • Extract the .zip file into your main Stardew Valley directory. They'll be dropped into the correct folder automatically. For steam games, by default this is C:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\common\Stardew Valley\
    • Select 'yes' for any file overwrite prompts.
    • Delete the modified files.
    • Restore your backup.
    • If you didn't backup, you can delete them and tell Steam to "verify the integrity of game cache," but this will probably remove other mods as well.

      Looks pretty nice, but blush is really weird.

        Fixed the link to Leah's portrait.

        Thanks. Yeah, I tend to have some trouble doing blushes. But I like the way these turned out :) If you know what specifically looks weird about them I can keep that in consideration and maybe tweak them a bit.

          Great :D another beautification mod. i rly like the idea of keeping the original feeling of the game.

          so far looks good, and yeah the blush is a little bit weird, especially leah :) to be more specific i think its too much red(blush), maybe you could reduce the blush amount a little bit and see how it turns out, its just my opinion tho.

          and good sir i want Penny the most !! :DD
          IMO you can make her better by doing something about her hair bun, either edit the hair bun somehow so it doesn't looks like the hair bun is only on the right side by make it in both side
          (this is what i mean by 'only on the right side').
          or remove the bun and change it to a medium bob hair, that would be nice. thanks for making this mod, i'll keep an eye on this thread :nod:

            Hmm, thanks for specifying. Did some quick tweaking, how does this look?
            Used the same colors, but made the lighter one more prominent and the pinker one more just on her cheeks.

            Also, I'm working on Maru right now, but she's nearly done. I'll be doing Penny next most likely (she's my waifu after all).

                I really like your style! I'm rooting for Elliot ! I adore his personality but I'm not crazy about his portrait, haha.

                Keep up the good work! I'll be using this.

                  Added Maru!

                  Thanks! Just so I remember who all I've finished, I'll probably do the Bachelorettes first and then the Bachelors (and then everyone else), but so far this is the first request on the Bachelor list :D

                    I'd love to see your take on some of the guys! Elliott and Sebastian especially! I don't like Elliott's new look as much as I like his beta portrait and I'd love to see something like it in game!

                      hmmm, iam no expert in pixel art, but i think it looks better than the first one, nice.

                      :love: penny, she's my waifu too :D

                      but after i saw this mod, i kinda want to romance leah on a new game play. totally worth it, you made her much better.

                        Awesome work. Looking foward to see PEnny too!

                          Thanks everyone for the positive feedback! I fixed the stray pixels on Maru's hospital outfit, and changed the blush in Leah's portrait. Also, a friend asked for a strawberry blonde variant of Leah since so many characters have the same hair color, so I included that for download above (it's not included in the "download all" link).

                          Getting started on Penny now!

                            These are my favorite retextures I've seen so far! Great work. I do personally prefer a long haired Maru but that's just a personal thing. Keep up the good work!

                              I'll probably do a long-haired Maru once I'm done with the main Bachelors/Bachelorettes :)

                                  These look great! Love seeing portrait improvements that retain the original style instead of full overhauls. Absolutely love your Leah.

                                    Added Penny! I decided to go more with a curled bob look rather than a side bun, since it matches her older character design and current sprite better in my opinion.

                                        Just finished up with Haley, so all of the bachelorettes are finished! Time to get started on the Bachelors :D

                                          Probably won't be any more finished portraits until tomorrow. I'm really happy with how these are coming! Thanks for the support guys ^^
