With the recent resignation of Steve Jobs, I decided to work on my sim from Gates Cove for a special upload.
Here he is:
I think I need to tweak something about his head, and perhaps find some better mugshots.

It looks like Steve Jobs has brown eyes. Your sim replica has green eyes. Change that :)

Hi Riley, nice to see you working on my hero Steve! As the above poster said, he does need his eye colour changed. Also, it would be helpful to have his sim-pics posted right next to the ref pics, but I've lined them up in separate tabs and am clicking back and forth between them:
His eyes need to be much smaller and I think deeper socketed (I forget what the slider's called, Eye Socket, Eye Depth or similar?). He has quite heavy eyelids so you might want to play around with the upper eyelid slider and/or bring his eyebrows down as far as they can go. The sim's eyebrows are also too rotated up (like / \ ), making him look sad or bewildered, they need to be rotated just VERY slightly down like \ / instead.
He has always had very craggy features and even moreso nowadays due to weight loss, which is hard to sim, but what should help is to make his jaw squarer and just a bit wider, give him very strong cheekbones, increase the 'nasolabial crease', and add those 'aging' 'or 'weathering' lines, whatever they're called.
From the side, his nose and chin both need to come forward more, especially his nose which is quite beaky.
The glasses are not right for him and I know you don't want to use cc, but you might try one of the two different pairs of round glasses I have uploaded here (one small pair recently uploaded, one large pair uploaded a while back), making the rims a light gray so that they blend into the lenses as well as possible, and see how he looks.
Also difficult to get the hair right, because he's not as bald as the hair you're using, just has a receding front hairline, and his hair is cropped/shaven rather than as long as the hair on the sim. But it's hard to know what to suggest because I doubt there's a custom hair that looks quite like that! I'm wondering if the cropped/shaven hair that comes with the base game might look better on him?
Well, that's quite a bit to get on with, don't want to overwhelm you - am looking forward to seeing the next version!
