Hey guys! First post here, so bear with me if I step on protocol. I just dove back into Stardew Valley the other day, and I got a hankering put in some custom portraits the freshen things up. There are some really terrific portrait mods floating around, but none were quite what I was looking for, so I decided to make my own. The goals for this project are to redraw each and every portrait in the game (exactly 250, fun fact) with original, high quality digital artwork. Rather than just doing a single drawing per character and editing it slightly to make the additional expressions, I'm going to try to draw each pose and expression from scratch to get the widest range of emotion and performance possible from these lovely characters. I'm aesthetically going for fun and appeal over beauty, drawing a bit more on traditional american and european animation and caricature for the style I'll be going for. For example, I've always thought of Emily as being a bit older than the other potential female spouses, and tried to draw her accordingly, while also trying to be true to her fun-loving hippy personality. So, she's attractive, but a little long-necked and gawky, and just starting to show her age. I also adjusted the neckline of her dress to match her sprite a bit better. Find below everything that I've got finished and in progress below. I'll be updating these sporadically as I go.
