This is a Maxis Recolour which means that it is a recolour of an item that already exists in your game. Please check the Expansion pack requirements to see which game pack it recolours.
This is a featured upload! It showcases the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Download includes nine different "paintings" in the "Psimcasso's Scenic Circuits" frame from the High End Loft stuff pack. All of them are fully re-CAStable with four channels (three for the art and one for the frame), allowing you to customize the images to a pretty huge degree. For example, these two paintings, each shown in three different colorations:



The paintings are found in the "Decor -> Wall Hangings" section of the catalog, and are 900 simoleons each, just like the original. These are based on a picture from the High End Loft Stuff Pack, but this is a full clone, so it is basegame compatible.

Attached screenshots include all nine paintings in different coloration examples, in-game shots of a couple paintings, and an RGB mask illustration. (In the RGB illustratrion, the alpha/fourth channel is displayed as the black and white checker -- basically it's just the frame.) Note that the "half-circle" painting is included in both left and right versions so you can pair them up if you wish.

If there's a demand for this kind of thing, I am more than happy to make some more in different sizes and designs. Just let me know in the comments if you would be interested.


Additional Credits:
Thanks to the creators of S3PE and S3OC, and to BabaYaga for the pagoda from this clutter pack. Thanks especially to Inge Jones for the Texture Tweaker update that allows addition of a fourth channel, and to the MTS moderator who alerted me to the new functionality. (So awesome!)

All paintings were designed by me, using basic Photoshop brushes plus a couple of extras from brusheezy.com. One of the multipliers includes an extract from a drawing by Gabriel Orozco.

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).


Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

Thanks so much! I bought a RL house and have reproduced it in Sims 3 so I can decide how I want to decorate it. I have absolutely nothing on the walls, and these are so inspirational! Wish I could buy some just like them in RL!

I am always looking for more paintings, but unfortunately I usually use the ones with the highest room rating (unless looking for a certain style and those don't match it). Could you do this with the satyr playing the flute one? Make some more for me? I'd so appreciate it!

Yay, I had these but when I had to re-install my game I couldn't remember where I got them. Until I saw this "Here is the stuff you downloaded from MST" thing in my account. Thanks a lot for this!!

I can't get the thanks button to work on this one, so you have one more thanks than is showing. Thank you for a very clever idea.

I don't play Sims 3, but I had to stop and look and this, and I gotta say it is extremely cool!

Ghost sdoj, try changing the link above for classic.modthesims.info, the new theme's buttons don't work for me either but the old ones do!
