View Full Version : Trying to create my first Sims 2 eyes!
30th Dec 2010, 3:00 PM
This will mark my first time in history when I try to edit my own eyes for game use as well as distribution. I hope I can receive some valued feedback from all!
Here's some pictures of the eyes in bodyshop:
And here they are in game:
Please, all feedback is welcome! Also, may I be pointed in the direction of a good CAS picture editor? So I may give them a custom picture?
I know they can be a lot better, right?

Well, I hope I don't sound bad (so sorry if I do), but the iris' look a little distorted... What program did you used to make those, Photoshop? If it was, did you used the elyptical marquee tool (not sure if it's the right name) for it or did you drew them yourself? I also think it needed more shadows on the sclera... But the idea seems nice, it's a good start :D
I just think the colors are a bit too bright too, unless that's your idea... Anyway, those are just some advices, I hope I haven't sounded harsh or anything ^^'

Yeah, when I saw them in game, I noticed I needed more shadows and to tone the bright blue down a little.
I did the iris myself though. It's just, the game mapped it weird I think. I need to rework it a little.

The white's too white, it looks creepy!

The glimmer or light reflection is bit large on the iris. Perhaps make it a bit more subtle?

You also may want to grab the download that fixes the light in bodyshop so it is much more like the light in game, so you have an idea what it will look like without reloading.
Make sure you read the directions, you only can have one file and I thnk its the medium light that matches in game light.

Your textures still are too blurry. You should restart at drawing the iris (the colored part).
Your white is alo too white and the shadows that are there are sloppily done.
Take a look at this tutorial, it will really help.
Make sure you take a look at both of them.
