View Full Version : A sim of a member of our MTS community

This young lady requested that I do I sim of her. I asked her if I could post my progress on CFF and she agreed. I'm not sure what colour the eyes should be. What do you think?

Increase eye depth and use the chin underlip depth to 'separate' her lips from her chin in the profile view. I would also increase bridge depth to make it come out more.
The nose so far looks excellent; she has a very interesting facial scuplt making her perfect to sim. I would have to question the 'relaxed-ness' of the reference photo, however. She looks as if she's smiling slightly, and it translates to giving your sim a permasmile.
I would also move both of her eye corners down a little bit.

Thanks for feedback Mzz :)
The profile shot is really the definitive one because with the front shot there are so many variations in a person's look, even if they dip their head slightly, it looks as if their jaw is more pointed or longer or the distance between lip and nose is different.
Whereas with the profile, you can see exactly what these distances should be. The trouble is when you get the profile right, it affects what the front looks like, just as it looks like I should raise the nose bridge slightly from the front, it is exactly as it should be from the side. What a dilemma!!

Again, I can't quite tell if she's raising her eyebrows or if they are naturally that way. Either way, I would suggest pulling the outer brow corners down.
EDIT: Speaking of eyebrows, they should be a pale-ish ashy blonde, rather than a dark golden blonde.
Make the irises smaller and perhaps lighter. The eyes are somehow a little bulgy, and it might be a pain to get them right. I'd say decrease scale and increase stretch. Also, the lower apex should be closer to the inner corner.
I'm not sure, but maaaybe narrow her jaw a little, to make her face more oval shaped. I would also widen or even increase the scale of the chin then shorten it. If you scaled it up, it might even help to match the profile. The important thing here is to just ensure that her jaw and chin remain one, rather than allowing the chin to jut out or look separated.
And I know the frustrations of the front on/profile not mtaching dilemma. :S
She's a beautiful girl and sim ;)

Thanks again Mzz
I have made suggested changes. I have tried pushing her eyes back a bit with eye depth slider, but she starts to look like a junkie. lol
Anyway, at this stage, I want to see what the subject herself thinks, so this will be my last change for the time being. I'm not sure whether she wants to be uploaded so don't if she is happy then I will send herself to her lol via e-mail.

I was thinking that the cheeks should be a bit bigger maybe, other than that, it's great! Thank you so much!
