Ok...I spotted this skin and decided to give it a go. I will give the pro's & con's of it, but overall it's really a good skin. I will post a few pics now and some body shots later. I didn't plan for him to come out as 'tan' as he did but that is because the skin color shading doesn't change much from CAS to game as most skins do. He is really much lighter and has been in my game forever! I think he showcases the skin nicely and the addional pics will show more the actual color of the skin I was aiming for.








Pro's:

It's really good quality made and the creator put a ton of work into making it.
It shows great in darker tones as well as lighter ones.
Great detailing on the overall skin, nice collarbone detail, facial pores are A MA ZING and they don't look misplaced on any sim size.
Creator added some vein-age also for a more realistic look.
Eye detail has it's pro's and con's. Pro's on this is awesome construction, great detailing, con's are looks awful in CAS and it's a bit dark under the eye but can be easily fixed.
The nose is detailed nicely as well as the ears. (rare)
Nostrils are very nicely dark and detailed.
Lips are lined lightly and look great! (can't tell so much from my pics)

Con's:
It looks horrible, at least the face, in CAS...this I can only assume is due to the shading the creator did to make the skin more detailed in game rather than CAS. Smart!
But could have also been a no dealer if I hadn' taken into consideration that sims do change some of their color and detail in game.
Could stand a bit more detail on the outer and inner knee's.
I haven't seen the female nipples, the male nipples look a bit awkward, not too bad, but the shading is just a bit off.
The belly button is a total fail (I'm sorry) but it's way too large and too dark. It makes the belly button look dirty. I can see what the creator was aiming for as the belly button is very detailed, just terribly off.
I wish we could get a bit more detail on the actual fingernails, but that's a small thing.


So overall, a great skin to have to just mix up your sims so they have a bit difference. I think she did a fab job however I would like just a touch more shine to the skin. But it's still good.

I'm forever a fan of Evie's so this does NOT surpass her greatness in making skin but she holds a close second.

Here is the LINK to view the actual creators site, 'Capital Sims' and get download information.

This is def a Cece pick!

*edit

I did try this on the females and I'm a bit disappointed in some of the areas of the skin. The nipples are a bit off in shading and detail...which can be a plus or negative, depending on how often you showcase your females nude.

The creator tried to enhance the shading around the females breast to show more cleavage for even the small breasted females...however...this can make what could be a 'B' cup sim look like a double D sim. Too much shading under and around the breast which on darker sims looks a bit dirty and not so much detailed.

Also with the adaption of trying to make more cleavage...it makes it difficult to make the breast look more natural.

I agree with Ny on the butt. Butt crack is a bit too high and it makes the bikini bottom of any kind look to small as if the sim tried to squish her big booty into a tiny bikini bottom.

Little to no knee detail both outer and inner, actually little to no detail on the legs; even in the muscular stage.

And the belly button looks more displaced and too large on the females than the males.

Overall facially , I'd say A+, but I like for the body to match the face in detail and style. I do LOVE what you can do with the makeup, as I mentioned...it does give for a more realistic look which is what I aim for in creating sims.

Still a good skin to use alternatively just for a change of pace. Smile

You know thats odd and totally backwards because everything always looks so much better in CAS than in live mode, mostly with skins and make-up, so I think I will have to give this skin a try!

PIcs please! I've got my game up and running right now so I can take a few more shots of Lazarus and take a looksee on a female sim. And I know right...CAS always looks better so this is shocking but very very smart. You should read how detailed she was in making this skin and she used such a different way of making it.

I just read it! All by hand with no base skin? Impressive...the only thing that I do not like...and it's a big one, is the detail around the eyes. Though I am sure it can be covered up with makeup and would look okay on adults...it looks atrocious on the child sims. I did also notice in the last picture that the cheek tone going into the neck doesn't match very well, not sure if it is or possibly bad lighting in the pic itself. Other than that, I like this skin tone. Will test in game tomorrow.

I had seen this skin on the creator's blog. It's amazing! I haven't tried it yet, but I really love a realistic skin. Plus the way she's gone about creating it, blows me away. It shows that she's placed a lot of time, effort and whole lotta LURVE into making this.

Thanks Cece for giving this pros and cons list!! It's a great idea, maybe we should do this on a regular basis for skins we post up Smile

Ok Here are my piccies! I used this on both male and female sims. There are 8 pics in total so might take a bit of time to load!






I do like the detail in this skin! A little bit of makeup covers up the aggressive eye detail, also depends on the shade you use too. Though it looked much better in game once adjustments and makeup was added, the one thing that bothers me the most about this skin is how her behind goes shows up over her bathing suit bottoms as if her bikini bottoms were to small, I compared this against other skins and the other skins it was covered up and I just love the detailing on the nose and nostrils!






I would say that I prefer this skin much more for male sims than females. All the detailing is great on the male and I didn't find anything I didn't like! I haven't tested it out on the other age groups just yet, perhaps when I have more time. This is a great find though CeCe thanks so much for sharing!

Great pics Ny! Since you so kindly posted your pics I see no reason to post anymore of mine on this skin...not unless I post in darker tones. (might do this) I have to agree, it is a skin that seems better fitted for the males, however...and this is a big however, with the intricate eye detail you can do so much more with the females than the males in facial makeup.

I'd like to see if this creator does more skins in the future, may make the skin that just blows up the sim world! lol!

So thrilled you all liked the review!! I really hadn't planned it but I'm so 'picky' and particular with skins I just noticed the detail right away. Since you all enjoyed it and so many asked me to do more...of course I will!! Yay! However...we don't get new skins often... so I don't know how frequent that will be and if any one spots a skin let me know so I can see what it looks like and give you all my thoughts on it.
Now...I won't put every skin in my game...but I will probably do most! Smile

I DO like the idea of a review section perhaps...what do you all think....

I agree! A review section would be wonderful for everyone to post their thoughts on a reviewed item or review something themselves!

I'd say if we add a review section then we'd have to categorize it so it wouldn't be a little bit of this and that and get all confuzzling. Let me talk to our 'graphics' department (Evie) Lol! and see if we can come up with some way to showcase this. It would be EXCELLENT if creators actually started checking it out to see what we think!! Plus...it would, as Freedom stated, critique and not rude criticism.

*nods* My opinions on a piece of custom content is never meant to intentionally hurt someones feeling, it is just that my opinion, I know people out their have their own opinions of my work...I listen to those who give positive criticism and take those that aren't so nice with a grain of salt. After all we as creators create what WE want, not cater to other people!

And yes organization would be nice!
