I put this up in 1.9 Discussion too, but I thought some people might be more apt to look for this kind of thing here so...
I know the NPC's are a tad polarizing round about these parts. So, for funs I whipped up a pack you can download that makes all the NPC's 1) Noseless 2) Radical 3) Human.
I have replaced all the textures, you just need to overwrite the existing textures in the mobs folder in the .jar. It only took me a few min to find them when I started and this is the first texture pack I've ever painted... So I imagine if you care, you can manage.
I could only find the four NPC types in the two villages in my level. If someone can find the regular Villager (now female in my pack) or the Butcher, please take screenshots and post them!
CHECK IT OUT! The pic is a link to my blog where you can snatch the download link!
I did a second similar set for those who are either; tyrannical overlords wanting to rule their subjects with an iron fist; or righteous lone warriors purging Mincraftia of its evil nations. This skin pack would look great against a dark texture pack.
I included some preview thumbs of the textures so you can get an idea what the butcher and villager look like. As you can see the priest is now an evil wizard, the smith has an eye patch, the butcher is covered in blood, the farmers have short jackets, the villagers have open coats, and the librarian is now an old witch/hag.
Not bad. I actually just finished my own as well and was starting on a second (sillier) one. I did two versions of each, one with, and one without that ridiculously large nose. Some of them actually look pretty OK with it.
