About this mod

Complete texture overhaul with alternate flavours (Pixar, Oil, Paint) Formerly Toon Skyrim Redux.

Permissions and credits

Pixar is a WIP and will be updated over time with more detailed textures.

Oil is still in pre release and currently contains many visible seams, they will be fixed in later releases.

Paint is still in pre release and currently contains many visible seams, they will be fixed in later releases.  DLC textures are incomplete, current version is using Pixar textures for DLC.  Experimental grass plugin from the Paint screenshots is available in the optional files section.


I don't have a lot of time to work on Pixar anymore and there are still a lot of armor, weapons, and clothing that haven't been detailed. I would like for someone to make patches to cover the items I didn't finish. I am opening permission on Pixar.

Whoever is able to make texture patches for the unfinished textures I have left in Pixar is allowed to, just give us credit and link to our page here. If you make something, send me a link here on Nexus and we will post it on the main page here.

For examples of what my style of detailing looks like, look at my iron armor and weapons, Thieve's Guild armor, and Stormcloak armor. Those are the main ones I really added the most detail to.

Also, anyone who can do patches for the SSE Edition to cover the SE specific textures in that is welcome to do so. I already did the water, but I noticed some rock and snow textures that were new in testing, and there may be others.

EDIT: Oil is now open as well for anyone who wants to make seam fixing patches.

This mod aims to change the look of Skyrim overall with a variety of texture replacers of varying flavours.

This mod doesn't retexture/remodel any items added by other mods.  I would like to add patches to cover other weapon and armor mods but I need to acquire permission from those mod authors before I can do such a thing.

Here are mods that I have received permission to patch from their respective authors and have a patch for on the files page:

Bandolier by Dragten for Basic and Pixar  (Tested and working for Special Edition Bandolier Classic version 1.2.1)
Many items in this mod use the vanilla textures.  I've detailed all the textures added by the mod, but some items won't have details until I get to the vanilla textures that are used in the main mod.

Cloaks of Skyrim by Nikinoodles and Nazenn for Basic and Pixar (Tested and working for Special Edition CoS version 1.2.1)

Bloodstone Chalice Reborn by Gamwich and Nazenn for Basic and Pixar.  (Not tested by me as I don't have  a vampire character.)

Use NMM or Mod Organizer(Preferred method)
Manually place all files in your Skyrim/data/ folder

NMM and MO are the better option if you plan to uninstall it.  It adds a lot of files and manual uninstallation can be tricky if you have any other mods that add loose textures.

It's important to remove the previous version before updating to a new version or different flavour.

This mod alone doesn't look great without ENB and has been designed with Tetrachromatic ENB in mind.   This is the ENB preset we have used in all of our screenshots and videos, without it there is a noticeable difference in the look.

Get it here:

Tetrachromatic ENB by Sloth

Also be sure to check out our ASO ENB page for a fix for shiny surfaces.  Also in the future we will be uploading our own ENB presets (Based on Tetrachromatic ENB) for this mod there.

Sovngarde Font by Mist

This is the font I am using on the roadsigns in Basic Toon Flavour and it's a very nice looking font that fits the game very well.  I prefer the Inverted Brackets version, but go with your taste.

No Blood by Citizen86

Not especially necessary, but some might feel like it looks better without blood.
