v1.5 IS HERE! MANY NEW FEATURES, AND AN INSTALLER! SEE CHANGELOG / STICKY POSTS FOR MORE INFO!

SPECIAL SHOUTOUT TO ALL MY PEEPS AT /R/SKYRIMMODS ON REDDIT, WOLFGRIMDARK FOR BEING AWESOME, NAZENN FOR THE FOMOD TIPS! 




Completely new, digitally hand-painted textures, specular maps, and re-worked normal maps for all non-beast male races. True to vanilla style, extremely high detail, highly optimized. Includes both face and body textures, with 6 options for body hair, and dirt, as well as options for younger faces, less veins, and now REAL FEET MESHES based on FavoredSoul's Better Males foot meshes. CREDIT TO FAVORED SOUL AND CHRIS57 FOR BETTER MALES and their open permission to use the assets!

NEW IN V1.5!

- Installer wizard for much easier selection of options
- REAL FEET MESHES based on FavoredSoul's feet from Better Males!
- Younger Face option
- Less body veins option
- All new hi-res subsurface scattering maps
- All textures, spec maps, normal maps reworked and improved (less seams than ever)
- Performance version (HD-DLC sized but looks FAR better than vanilla, see images)
- Ultra version is REALLY ULTRA (screenarchers only, each NPC uses 136MB!)



These aren't 20-year-old, smooth, pretty boys, but rough-and-tumble Northmen of Skyrim. Available in ULTRA (4K), HIGH (4K/2K), and LOW (2K/1K HD-DLC size).

This started out as a personal project for learning experience, and I put a crazy amount of time and effort into getting it just right for my personal tastes. For example, every single body hair was hand-drawn (my wrist and pen tab hate me) and every mole placed by hand, then re-baked into the normal maps for full effect. I really wanted some textures that were very true to vanilla style, but highly detailed, and I think I've accomplished that.

The textures were hand-painted in Photoshop with a Wacom tablet, with some hi-res photos blended in for certain details (i.e. nipples, belly button, hair folicles, eyelids, ears.) I even took photos of my own feet as a base for the feet textures (LOL). While I was at it, I completely re-drew the male underwear as well, using vanilla as a reference, so that's now high-res.

All Non-Beast Races Covered: Nord, Breton, Dark Elf (Dunmer), High Elf (Altmer), Imperial, Old Man, Orc, Redguard, Wood Elf (Bosmer)

Your feedback and suggestions are greatly appreciated, and always considered! <3


I just got a double feature from the fantastic Brodual! Thank you guys!


And many thanks to Hodilton and Slytra for their videos!




These are made for the vanilla meshes, but patches for Better Males and SoS are in progress and almost complete.

DO NOT RUN THESE THROUGH DDSOPT! They have been specifically optimized, and in some cases saved slightly different than normal for maximum performance. DDSOpt could actually screw up the files or actually make them LARGER in this case. If you need better performance, select a lower resolution package and one of the optional performance normal maps.

I would like to give a shout-out to Drumber, Geonox, and Xenius, who have made some of the best textures for Skyrim, and whose work inspired me to take up skin texturing!

CREDIT TO FAVORED SOUL AND CHRIS57 FOR BETTER MALES and their open permission to use the assets, which were used for the feet!



It's just a texture pack so it's fairly simple.

1) Download one of the installers: ULTRA, HIGH, or LOW.
2) Pick the options in the installer
3) Look at them sweet textures!
4) If you want to use a different mod that edits normal maps, such as Ethereal Elven Overhaul, install that AFTER mine and let it overwrite the files of your choosing.

I highly recommend these mods!!  I use them in my game and in the screenshots and they add so much depth!

- Beards and Brows by lthot
- Northborn Scars by Northborn
- Superior Lore-Friendly Hair (rough version) by skyrimaguas
- The Eyes of Beauty by LogRaam
- Inhabitants of Skyrim (non-ApachiiSkyHair version) by Rops1981

If you're looking for Khajiit textures, check these out:
- Cover Khajiits by mrLenski <-- supreme work!
- Khajiit Body Textures (female) by JazzJR / FallenAngle
- Khajiit Body Textures (male) by JazzJR / FallenAngle


Mods that introduce a new male body mesh with different UV maps will have some odd stretching, but patches for Better Males and SoS are near completion.

All males in the game, regardless of race, share the same base diffuse skin texture, so the texture isn't compatible with other male texture mods. However, each race DOES have its own normal map for the face only (shapes/bumps), so this is compatible with mods like Ethereal Elven Overhaul, which only change the mesh morphs and normal maps. If you want to use normal maps from another mod, just install them over top of mine and let it overwrite what you like.

This is also compatible with overhauls that only change the morphs/meshes of the NPC faces, such as Inhabitants of Skyrim (highly recommended!)


- PLEASE NOTE, I DO NOT GIVE ETAs ANY LONGER, BECAUSE I DO NOT KNOW!
- New textures/normal maps for Vampires & Snow Elves (Dawnguard)
- New tint mask textures for 40/50 year old man / rough skin
- FEMALES!

If you like my work, drop me an endorsement! It shows me you appreciate what I do! <3

My other work:

I feel weird breaking the 4th wall into my real life/identity, but I also write electronic music. I released an EP earlier this year called "Hologram", and it's available on Spotify, iTunes, Amazon, etc. or for FREE at BandCamp. Everything I do, from design, to Skyrim mods to music, is for the love of creativity, and for people to enjoy. Have a listen, I hope you like it!
