I am a good lurker, I think. When I download (and I download a lot!) I am concscientious about clicking the "thank-you" button, and I always send money during MTS2 donation drives, but that's been the extent of my involvement. However, after all this time, I am feeling the urge to give something a little more back. I'm shy, and my attempts to join in on these forums have been...less than successful. I thought I'd do what I do best: make stuff, then run back into my cave

I know that people don't have purple eyes, but Sims can, so certainly some of them should! There are dozens of sets of lovely hyperrealistic eyes available here and elsewhere. These eyes, however, were designed to be not-quite-realistic, but not unbelievable, either. Some are more fantastic than others (in all senses of the word), but I think you'll find them to be surprisingly useful for even the most ordinary of Sims.

Because these eyes were all hand-drawn (albeit in Photoshop), they represent a fair amount of work. I would be most flattered if you were to upload them with a full Sim, provided you give me credit. However, please do not claim my work as your own, recolor my textures, or otherwise misrepresent the source of this content.

And in case anyone asks: the girl's skin is by Enalya, hair by Miguel/Poison Pink Lemons on a DJ Mur mesh. The redhead's skin is by Serasims, hair by Kavar. The gentleman on the right has hair by Hysterical Paroxysm and skin by Louis. Makeup is by me, RenSims and Helaene. If the eyes are kindly received, I will likely upload some makeup in the near future.

Added file: The jed_EyeNames.rar file is just a larger .jpg of the eye colors and includes their numbers and the names I've given them, for ease in identifying which you want to keep, if 50 is just too many eyes for you I meant to include this in the original download, but it certainly isn't necessary.

That is a heck of alot of variety! And a lot of work on your part! I can't wait to see these in game, particularly the pinkish one since it made me think of Cheza eyes but that would need lots of pink sclera to match but I'm happy for a close facsimile! Thanks for your imagination and productivity!

I...will never be a memory.

I love these, but do they have shading? (Do your sims eyes show black when they open it wide?) It's because that it's a little unconfortable with it. I just wanted to know.

You're welcome! I didn't know who Cheza was, so I looked her up. I'm doing a bunch of "animal" eyes (cats, goats, etc.) and I'll add a Cheza eye to the group since it is very pretty and now I know someone could use it.

I do - and I knew there was something I missed listing! Brows are by Helaene on the girl, Xandher (TSR) on the redhead, and from the fabulous and mostly manly brow pack at SimsVault on Bachelor #3.

Heh. I hesitated to use my name for that very reason...but I don't really mind the association, even though I haven't even seen the last three (first three?) movies. Because I'm also a dork, I even considered putting Leia buns on the girl

I'm not sure how to answer this - They have shadowing on them that (hopefully) makes them look more "real," but I haven't noticed anything unusual when their expressions change. However, I build houses and make pretty Sims all the time, but I rarely *play* the game. It's possible I am just not seeing enough of my Sims in action to see them open their eyes *really* wide. They have more shading than Maxis eyes (which have none), but less shading than a lot of the other eyes I've seen and/or downloaded.

Thank you! And, yes, the lipstick on the girl is mine (on the redhead, as well). I've got several styles of "natural" lips that I'm organizing for upload. They're all sheer to some degree so that they nicely enhance the lips on highly detailed skins but don't cover them up entirely. I initially started doing makeup to have some options for my male Sims - non-glossy lips, subtle shading for the eyes, all-over color for the face, etc. - so it's not very exciting, but I find it very useful. And, of course, I use it for females, too

Again, thank you so much for your kind remarks. I will be uploading some makeup and some specialty eyes in the near future, as well as a skintone - if I ever finish it!

Thank you so much! I'm very flattered! I must confess, I really only use my eyes in my game, if only because I am so fond of non-standard colors. Other than the ugly Maxis eyes, the only single-color eyes I have are some pretty ones that came with full Sims (and they're mostly from Helaene).

Just FYI, since you commmented about the uniqueness, I've added a file listing the numbers and (sometimes odd) names I've given the colors, since the text is sometimes hard to read in Body Shop or CAS.

Thanks again. I hope you enjoy them.

Actually, people do have purple eyes. Its some kind of vitamin deficiency or something. Here: www.myspace.com/jesusthejanitor Thats living proof. No contacts, no tricks.

Some people are like Slinkies, they have no apparent useful function but always manage to bring a smile to your face when you push them down a flight of steps.
