View Full Version : Attempt at a realistic sim- Feedback/Advice appreciated!
11th May 2010, 4:46 AM
Hey guys! I love making tons of sims, and my latest attempt is realistic, and I'm not sure what my take on her is. I'd like her to be kind of a suburan girl you'd see as your neighbor or out for a stroll in the park.
Any feedback/advice on how to improve her?

Good start however her eyes are way to big to be realistic, also the skin isn't great try this skin
its perfect for realistic people!

Thanks Harry! I'm just going to restart my game real quick so they appear!

Here she is with suggestions I have gotten so far :D

that is much better! I would also make the brows a little lower, you rarely see people with really high brows

How's that? I added some eye bags, along with editing her cheek bones, lowering them and making them more outward. I also increased cheek fullness

Looks good! needs a bit of work though but I'm not sure what else to say, maybe bring the top eyelid down a bit (looking a bit wide eyed) as well as the eyebrows a bit more. Anyway this is your sim so look for source pictures and see what looks realistic and see if you can capture it on your sim

Thanks for all the help Harry! I really appreciate it :D I'm going to bed (it's 11:30 and I have school O.O) so I'm going to try and think of ways to capture my sim in my mind, and make it super realistic. Then it will be back to amazingly unrealistic sims XD

I like the first one better. She had a sweet face and looked unique.

Make her lips smaller. The eyes and the lips are always much larger on sims then on real people.
Also, maybe make her upper lip smaller then her lower one. Although, that can vary on people.

Yeah, make her lips smaller!
Also, it wouldn't hurt getting the sliders to change her head if you haven't already.....

Sliders are yuck :D
Here's my new edits: enlarged eyes, reduced lips, edited jaw :D Also added some eyeliner, for POP

The shape of the eyes look a little weird, try to slightly even out the corners a bit
11th May 2010, 9:30 PM
Her eyes do look better!
Thanks everyone so far!

Here's an ingame shot :D

I really like her eyes and her lips.
I think her jaw needs to be a bit more defined, at the moment it doesn't really have a strong shape to it. Also I think the nose is a bit too thin around the middle. Don't be afraid to increase the nose width too :)
This is up to you but maybe rotate the eyebrows inwards, because if they're rotated too outwards it gives the sim a kind of sad look.
Could we see her with some different hairs? That one is nice but it'd be good too see what she looks like with other ones.
I really like her eyes and her lips. She's so cute ^_^
Oh and you should get some different freckles that look more real instead of the ones in the game. Try PaperCat (http://papercatsims3.blogspot.com/) or LadyFrontbum's (http://www.ladyfrontbum.com/?p=631) ones. For papercats just click on downloads and scroll down.

The eyes look unnatural with the bags.
