Taking a break from the Army Wives while Catherine Bell is being modded in the upload queue. I have always thought Rachel is absolutely gorgeous, so I thought I would try and make her. Feedback is welcome.

I think you could find some better, neutral pictures of her face to help a little more. I found a couple...here (http://www4.pictures.zimbio.com/fp/Rachel+Bilson+Rachel+Bilson+Attending+Roberto+IYzvDHdgtdCl.jpg) and here (http://celeb-world.net/d/6475-2/rachel-bilson116.jpg). This third picture (http://cdn.buzznet.com/media/jj1/2008/02/bilson-premiere/rachel-bilson-jumper-premiere-03.jpg) is probably the most helpful, in my opinion.
Jaw looks like it should come down some more. The incline between the chin and the jaw looks a bit too steep right now. Lips look pretty good but the dip between her nose and lips looks much too severe. Nose looks a little off as well but, at the moment, I can't put my finger on it. You have a good base going though so nice start.

She looks great, Audrey. You've been making a lot of gorgeous brunette sims! Heheh. :)
You might want to very slightly decrease the scale of her chin. You might have to bring up the height/increase the width slightly if you do this.
Her nostrils look as if they are slightly too low. I think that might be what looks off about the nose. I also think you could stand to move down her nose bridge just a tad.
Not sure if this is helpful, but I made an experimental slider for that upper-lip-dip-thingy(philtrum) that you're welcome to try out on her, here:http://www.mediafire.com/?uzhfl2cgbcygnqo It won't touch the lips, but it will widen the dip. If it doesn't help, feel free to just delete the slider! ;) Right now their shape is looking very close. I know it is hard to achieve that shape without some distortion, so maybe this will help the area look less severe without changing it too much. You can try slightly turning down the mouth definition, based off the pictures that Heaven posted.

Thank you for the pics. I am not sure about the first one. She is smiling and her face looks haggard. I can't get permission to see the second pic and the 3rd pic is fine but her lower face is slightly stretched due to smiling. I think I will still use my pic in conjunction with your third pic.
Ameenah, I love you for that slider. Thank you very much. In my picture, her mouth is in repose whereas in Heavens pictures, the top lip is stretched giving it the impression of less of a philtrum.
Re the nose, bringing the bridge down creates a dip in the nose straight on which translates to it looking as if the is a dip just before the tip. This is a difficult one. Will try another nose and see what happens.
BTW, if that is you in the avatar, then there is another gorgeous brunette. (;

*Sigh* Lots of views, no comments. I feel unloved *sniff sniff*. Lol
Has nobody anything to say about this sim, does she need more tweaking, is she ready for upload? Feedback will be soooooooooooooooooooo appreciated.

There's something off about the nose. I think the space between the eyes is too narrow and it's putting me off.
Her mouth corners need to come down.
Her chin is also looking a teensy bit small and too low.
Her eyes look somewhat unrelaxed. Perhaps bring the lower lid up a little.

The eyes and upper part of the face look like a good match to me. Good work! The nose looks a bit too defined and, I think, might be a bit too long. The nasal bridge needs to move down and the nose bulb and nose itself be a little thinner / more delicate. There's a bit too much space between the nose and lips. The bottom part of her face needs to move up a touch and the chin be a tiny bit shorter. The model's lower face looks more square / shorter to me. It looks to me like the mouth is "pursed". You might want to try pulling the mouth back some. Make the mouth a bit wider and the bottom lip a bit fuller / more square. The bow of the upper lip looks really close. Do you have a profile reference photo? I'll be looking forward to an update!

I think Her nostrils have to be a little more details and her eyes need to move outwards a touch. and he jaw needs to be a little wider. and her hair a little lighter. But she is amazing. Im excited to download her if you put her up.

WOW. She is looking almost identical to Rachel ! Just maybe make the eyebrows slightly further apart and make her lips like a tiny bit wider and the bottom lip a tiny bit fuller.

I am coming back to this sim. Will put an update up soon.
