Like Hvergelmir's Armor Retexture page where you'll be up to date with whatever I am currently working on, not limited to my armor retexture project!

Brows is a Skyrim texture mod that replace the existing eyebrows with high resolution hand painted eyebrows that are true to the vanilla style, but look so much more photo realistic. Brows also feature added brow styles that will be added along the way as the mod develops and brow style requests are given.

I always intended to eventually retexture Skyrim's awfully low-res blurry eyebrow textures. In fact, I've stated at several accounts that I would at one point improve the various character generation facial textures such as; beards, eyebrows, hair, complexion and tint masks, war paint and so forth. With the recent release of Beards I thought this was a good time as any to start retexturing the eyebrows. So I did.

Please be aware that Brows is first and foremost a texture replacer mod with some additional personally styled add-on eyebrows styles – the new brows is just a bonus and you're in no way obligated to use them if you don't want to.

The vanilla eyebrow textures resolution is only 128x64 px.
I hand painted the new brow textures at a stunning 1024x512.
I have 1024x512 textures available for high-end rigs. The visual differences from the 512x256 textures are likely to be so small though, that I probably won't recommend using these.
I have 512x256 textures available for any rig. You may barely see a difference from the 1024x512 textures, thus I highly recommended using these instead.

I haven't tested the normal resolution brows yet, so I can't tell if you'll be able to see any visual difference.

Now with light and dark variations! Enjoy!

I take brow style requests for future updates!
If you have an eyebrow style you'd like to have included in the mod you're welcome to suggest them in the comments section (preferable provided with an image source of some fashion - actually I require you to do so). I need both male and female styles. While I DO need more styles, don't expect me to include ALL given requests and I stand the right to refuse some requests - I'll just pick up the more interesting ones. Please try not to get disappointed if that is the case.

Don't bother asking for mono brow styles - even if I wanted to do them, as far as I can tell it is not technically possible as the brow mesh doesn't connect in the middle.

It is recommended to install Brows with Nexus Mod Manager, it simplifies the process greatly and also makes it simple to uninstall again if needed.

To manually install Brows, use either WinRar or 7-Zip to extract the files to: Steamsteamappscommonskyrim
If asked to override, click yes. Please keep in mind this will override any other brow (re)textures you currently have installed.

To manually uninstall Brows, delete the Malebrows and Femalebrows folders inside the textures folder found here: SteamSteamappsCommonSkyrimDataTexturesActorsCharacter
Please keep in mind this will delete any other brow (re)textures you currently have installed. If you know what you're doing you can enter the brows folders and delete each texture manually as you see fit.

I have a bunch of highly recommended (but not required) mods to be used with Brows:
Beards - High quality beard textures with additional bonus beard styles.
High Res Face Maps for Men by Geonox - High quality face textures for males.
CBBE skin texture V2 V3 plus Thepal and UNP compatible - High quality face and body textures for females.

You may not under any circumstances use my textures for a mod of your own without my explicit written permission.
If you see this mod distributed at any other place than on SkyrimNexus that is NOT found in the mirrors list, it is being distributed illegally. Please contact me here if you find such case. If the website is in a foreign language that you speak, it would be of great help for me if you contacted them yourself and notified them of this on my behalf.

I am open to suggestions and collaboration work on other mods, got any great ideas feel free to contact me. My strong side is mainly (re)texturing, but I am flexible and should be suitable for other jobs.

Are you a mod creator yourself and have made some fancy armor? Like my armor texture work? Want it in YOUR mod? Feel free to contact me then and we could work something out. If I really dig your style I might even be willing to do custom textures for your mod as well!

If you like my work, I'd appreciate it highly if you'd comment or post screenshots with my work!
