About this mod

I feel like Maru's sprite didn't match her avatar/portrait, and I also felt like her older versions were cuter. So this mod basically utilizes features from older versions of Maru.

Permissions and credits
I love the original 16-bit style that Stardew Valley has for their portraits.

However, I feel like some of the NPCs portraits didn't look appropriate: for Maru, I felt like her portrait didn't match her sprite, and her hair should be curly!!!

In my portrait mod, I based off of the portrait that CA created (including earlier versions) but modified it to give her curly short hair, removed her glasses, and made her top magenta. This, in turn, makes her look SO CUTE.

I hope you like it. I'm not an expert and this is my first time doing it, but this is how I wanted her to look in my game! :)

If there's any issues with it, please let me know. I tested it out in my game and it seemed to work fine.

To use this mod, you need to install the following mods: 
SMAPI - Stardew Modding API
PYTK - Patonymous Toolkit

Here's how to install the portrait mod:

Put the .png images inside the Stardew Valley\Mods\Portraiture\Portraits\lolmariam folder on your computer. This is where you keep your portrait mods created by me. (When you download Portraiture, it will create a folder. In that folder, there is a Portraits folder. For each different group of portraits that you want to toggle from, create a named folder to separate them.)

To switch the portraits and reveal the modded version, press P in-game during a dialogue with said NPC. It should keep that portrait throughout the game until changed again.

If there are any issues with the portrait mod (including alignment or quality), please contact me.
