      Wow, these are definitely unique and interesting looking portraits. It's quite refreshing since almost all unique alternatives are anime-style.
      I have a comment if I may. The upper lip on Abigail looks kinda weird. Maybe it's a good idea to shift a "step" from the center. She also has lower eyelashes and they kinda merge with three thingies above the nose(I guess this is a shadow), cause they are of the same color. I think if you lighten them, it would look a bit better.

      This is not a suggestion or critic, just a thought.

      I've also got a question. Which algorithm did you use to enlarge your sprite for the front image. Was it nearest neighbour?

        I have one thing I really want to say to you: THANK YOU SO MUCH! I always knew something was off with Abigail, but it was hard to pinpoint. She was the first sprite I was working in, and I think that really shows. I'll fix that during the next update. Thanks for the feedback.

        As for the second question, I just enlarged the actual photo itself and used nearest neighbour to make sure it would pixelate even more. Easily done on Photoshop.

        Anyway, thank you so much for the feedback!

          @unofficialskeleton
          Glad to help :)
          Just noticed another thing (it was not obvious on the big portrait, but it is noticeable on the original), her eyebrows and upper eyelashes interlace, giving them a dripping look. There is nothing like this on the other portraits. The gap between and an upper eyelash and an eyebrow on the other characters looks cleaner and softer.

          btw, it's not neccessary to install portrature, you can also use XnbLoader.

            My only critiques would be Caroline's face looks extremely stretched. Her eyes are... on her forehead. And her bangs start... on the top of her head? And the three notches above her nose are too dark compared to the others, it makes it look like she has a second nose. ^_^;

            And Pam has too much of a forehead. She reminds me of Megamind:

            Other than a few hair parts being a little too far up the head, I like the rest of them. :)

              Well, Pam's forehead is the same size as Penny's, Haley's and a little bigger than Emily's. Pam just has less hair covering it and it is a front portrait.
              As for Caroline, personally I like this one, further positioned eyes gives her more mature look.
