View Full Version : Maroon 5's Adam Levine
16th Sep 2011, 8:33 AM
I've looked around for him but I cannot find him anywhere (or at least one that's decent) and I decided to try to make him myself.
I think he came out pretty good for a first time making a sim based off of a celebrity. I was just looking for some feedback on what you guys think of him and maybe what I can do.
Please, do keep in mind that I DID NOT use ANY sliders on him. This is all created with what the game has to offer already.
Also, I apologize for the shadowing on the sims photo, the light made him look weird, casted bizarre shadows on his face.

His nostrils need to be smaller and the tip of the nose should be brought up a bit.
The jaw is a bit too wide <--maybe the head itself is a bit too wide; something there doesn't look right though.
The ears need to be out a bit more.
Perhaps widen the bridge of his nose a bit too.
The top lip is a smidge too thick and need to be defined a bit more (it's a bit hard to tell from the pic though).
There's also something a bit off with the eyes, but I can't quite pinpoint it.
Overall a great start, but you need to take a new in-game pic (as you already stated) and perhaps look for a CC skin? The one you have doesn't match his too well.
I'm no expert by any means though, so perhaps someone else can help you out a bit more. :D

I think his nostrils look a little different in a better light, but, I'll definitely try to fix it a little.
I know for sure his head is actually too thin, his head is on the minimum slider for it and I just need to kind of make it bigger cause the jaw looks really awkward with it's thinness.
I actually do have a CC skin, haha - I use Ephemera's default replacement skins.
Thanks for the feedback, I'll definitely put him in better light next time I launch and take another picture.

I don't know who he is, but comparing to the photo, he's a good start.
I don't think his head or jaw are too wide, if anything they look like they need to be just a touch wider, not too much. His eyes are too far apart and slightly too big, they need to be closer together and a little smaller. He needs different eyebrows, something with a slight arch to them, and his ears need to be a touch bigger and rotated out to stick out more. His bottom lip needs to be a bit thinner from top to bottom and less wide across, and top lip needs to be a bit thinner from top to bottom.
As mentioned above, you'll need a better in-game pic that isn't in shadow, in order to see his features better - try positioning him with a couple of overhead lights and a couple of floor lamps that are all just in front of him and see how that goes.

His eyes are a bit too large, and his brows aren't quite curved enough. The sim looks like he's angry. His ears also should stick out a bit more. Eventually, you'll want to either download or create those specific details, like the forehead wrinkles and the nose freckles. Great start and foundation though.
