PostSubject: Has this ever happened to you??   November 24th 2011, 4:16 pm

I started a sim the other day to be similar to this photo..I saw it on the exchange and the person was using it for their sim that looked nothing like the picture so i thought okay Robin (that's me for all you who call me dachs) you have a go at it...:


Anyway she just wasn't working well for me...you can ask Orange (Todd) if you don't believe me..poor thing i was burning up his yahoo messenger with snapshots...and opinions...anyway then i decide oh heck i am just going to make this sim my own...and not try to do her from some picture..

So this is what i got:


I actually prefer her more then the model i was working from...

I use to create sims for hairstyles i made in the sims 2 but now i can't seem to do that either...the hairstyle has to compliment my sim now...i make my sim with a hair on her then i take and go through thousands of hairs till i find the one that suites him/her best...so actually i have no idea what i am making when i start to create a sim...i just let it mold and shape...does that happen to you as well..that you have no idea what your sim will look like until all the elements fall into place. That is the only way i can create now is just to let it happen. I have no idea what i will end up with. All i know is when i will know when the sim is done. It's done when all elements fall into place.

Wow I'd love to try and create her!! Too adorable. And Robin your sim is gorgeous!!! I make my sims so weird, I start with different zones (facial) I may see a set of eyes on the net and fall in love with the shape of them so I will save the pic for future reference, same thing with noses, overall facial shape and ears. I usually have my trademark lips, full and shaped, but sometimes I do make a more slender lip. Hair is the last thing I do, eyebrows first, then facial hair if male and then head. So I am pretty random because sometimes I just get 'that feeling' of needing to create and just open up game, go through random sims to I see one I want to work with.
*I have noticed lately that it's hard to put your sim in glasses because we really don't have a ton of choices. I'd love to see more eye wear!

Ok...I'm not hijacking this thread, I told Dach to look for this and here it is!! I wanted to try and make a sim out of the picture she posted in the original post and here is my version. I don't think she came out to bad. What do you think? There were several areas that just were impossible to duplicate, at least for me. The chin, the bridge of the nose and of course makeup.





I've got more to show however the hosting site is acting a bit funky tonight and I def don't feel like going through photobucket tonight so I will post more later. hiho

This is the original picture!


The more I look the more I see that I really want to attempt again to fix her chin!! And her nose I see needs to be rotated up a little bit more and a tiny bit smaller.
What else?

Thanks for the compliments although she is not finished yet. Orange she has taken me 2 day's and still not complete but it's been fun trying to make her! I don't know if she is real with maybe a bit of photoshop or if she is some kind of sim also. Jae I'd love to see your version also!!! Please do! I'm going to work on her some more tonight and see if I can fix her chin, bottom lip and work on her nose a bit more. I think the eyes are spot on except for the actual color.

Ok...final posting. After making some changes this is the closest I could get to a likeness. If I keep changing it totally changes the overall image.
Let's see how Jae does...can't wait!! She probably will knock it out of the park with greatness!!






Not too happy with the chin because it elongates her face but without a lengthiness it just doesn't look right. Oh well...

Robin, WOW she looks gorgeoussss! Smile I'm in love with the lighting in your pic (lighting wh*re over here haha) - you put a great spin on the original.

Oh man, I could write novels about the ups & downs of my sim-creating (mostly downs lol - my sims are all kinda meh). Whenever I start out trying to mimic a picture or celeb it rarely ever comes out exactly that way -- I always want to add this or change that or whatever. Sometimes they start out being more cartoony and end up more realistic, or vice versa. Different skin colors, features, yada yada yada on & on. It's crazy sometimes lol.

Ceceeeeee *smoochies* Holy moly she looks great!! Smile Where is the hair from? I <333 your sims m'lady!

I might give this a shot, but it won't be close to what you guys did (or what jaedub could do *shudders* - can't even IMAGINE, fo real)

I worked on this version last night -- I think it's pretty close to the picture but with a few of my own tweaks. My sim looked a little better with sleepier eyes, not as wide as the original, and a slightly wider nose. I'm SO glad I tried this b/c now I am in love with this sim lol. Need to find her a man, preferably one of Cece's hotties.... <333 My original name for her was Kaleah, but now I'm not sure. Might go with something else.











The first picture (mine) is photoshopped in the coloring, makeup (a bit) and brows (a bit). The second pic has a little eye shading and a softness filter. The hair is hiding the roundness of her face, and I might give her a different style to show it off because the roundness looks good on her. I have a thousand outtakes of this too lol.

Editing experiment with this picture

Cel, wow, ohmygod, she looks amazing! Good job on the clean (not overly done) editing. Seriously, great job matching the reference.

CeCe&Dachs, I love both your interpretations - the same reference has turned out three beautiful and unique sims so far - I'm really excited to see yours, Jae. Smile

Jaedub - I love love love your version of the original!! Smile Smile She's so realistic and chic <33

Thx guys, I'm glad you liked Kaleah. I'll try to upload her soon - she's a teen tho (I liked the way she turned out as a teen better than a YA with the way I was putting her together). And since I was trying to re-create that original picture, her genetics might be so-so. Lol I never ever ever upload sims, but I'll upload Kaleah, maybe this weekend (need to make sure I have the cc and sliders documented - i use LOTS of sliders in making my sims, be forewarned lol).

I started working on number 1 but she ended up looking so different I scraped her and I NEVER scrape a sim, this is the very first time!! May try another one. Number 1 looked so easy! Sad...
