So I'm working on starting a new "Build-A-City" challenge, and I've created my founding Sims. I plopped them all on a lot and gave each a photo session.
And I fell in love with this guy already. His name's Robin, and he's a vampire. (My vampires look human. I prefer it that way.) But he's the shyest, nicest vampire ever, with 10 nice points and 0 outgoing points. (I love randomly generating personalities! :D) So this pose was perfect for his personality, and I had to have it for his profile pic for the website I'm creating to document this challenge.
Then I was feeling artsy, and I decided that I wanted to see if I could make this image (and one each for my other founders) look more like a photo of an actual person. Of course I had to do Robin's first because I was in love with him already, and here's the result. (The blank space will eventually be filled in with his info.):
This is, of course, heavily Photoshopped, especially because the video card of the laptop I play on can't render smooth edges. *laughs* It's color-corrected, "warmed," textured, shadowed/highlighted for dimensionality and mood, blurred, burned/dodged, and then glowed and sharpened again, etc. You name it, I did it.
If you're curious, you can see a smaller version of the "raw" image here , for comparison's sake. I just love doing this kind of stuff with Sims pics...
So I'm taking another stab at documenting a neighborhood. This one stars Benjamin Long. Pathetic attempts at humor can be found here.
Also at that LJ, there's stuff to download, some of which aren't/won't be here on MTS.
