Hi :-)

CLOSER - movie about Love.This love is very complicated and sometimes dirty. I have hope that You will be like this sim-person-form and that in Your Game of them love will be nicer and straighter.
* Request - exception (Natalka - buziaczki )
Julia Roberts <Anna>:
All in Maxis. Only hair I was recolored.

Natalie Portman <Alice>:
Hair - Peggysims2
Eyeshadow - Helaene
Eyeliner/Lashes Barcelonista
=> thank you
Eyes, dress and rest by myself.
* I thought did create Natalie, because Regina S. made she so fantastic. At last I made she, because how to introduce four lovers in Game having only three?

Misters: Jude Law <Dan> and Clive Owen <Larry>:
All in Maxis. Rest by myself.
I want to express my thank you for all yours opinions and e-mail messages.
I don't take requests, forgive me.
I wish you nice fun!

Of the four, I'd say Jude and Clive are more accurate, while Julia and Natalie could use a little work.

For one thing, I think Nat's eyes need to be a little father apart; her nose needs to stick out a little farther, and you need to curve the slope of the nose inward a little more.

For Julia, you need to bring the upper bridge of her nose out a little more; it sort of merges straight into her eyebrows, rather than going so far into her face. Also, the line of her jaw needs to be straighter; you should be able to accomplish this by bringing her chin down. While bringing the chin down will certainly make her face too long, you can easily compensate for this by sliding the rest of her features (mouth, eyes, nose, brows, etc.) down by the same distance.

Kudos for even attempting to sim Clive; handsome as he is, he has such etched, distinctive features that I imagine it would be really difficult to render him as a sim. You did a great job regardless; my only suggestions would be to make his a eyes just a little narrower and the bridge of his nose straighter, rather than having it bulge so at the the end. He could use heavier stubble too; it's kind of a signature of his look.

As for your Jude Law: Spot. On. I think that's the best I've ever seen.

On kind of an off-topic note, I've seen the movie too. It's one of those that frankly makes me wonder if people anywhere actually act like that. It was fascinating though; I'll give it that.

Oh. Good. Googley!

Usually Simmies based on real people aren't that close, but these are really spot on. I showed them to me husband and the only one he couldn't tell which was the actual celeb and which was the photo was Clive. But Siren's right - the rugged, lined faces are difficult with a game that only gives us preternaturally smooth faces.

Congrats on such superb work. You really did a bang-up job!

is it can be sims tiem now plees?

I love your Julia and Clive, Natalie could use a little work but overall the sim looks exactly like her. Great job! As for Jude, it's one of those rere cases when you do everything 'by the book', and I mean everything - but something's still missing, a little something that makes sim look like a person. It's the reason I can't finish Keanu Reeves after monts and monts of work. I think it's just the way sims are )) But you did fantastic! Keep up great work!

Jude is very hard to sim, especially relying so heavily on Maxis/EA. Kudos, you made an astonishingly close resemblance.

bakalia, thanks so much. I loved the movie, and I can't wait to play with these characters. I just can't bellieve how accurate the faces are. I especially like Julia Roberts, but that might be because I think she's one of the pritiest actresses in Hollywood.

Default surprisingly
I think your take on the Closer stars is very good... you have accented their main features, which will make them stand out in the game for who they are. I think you have done a brilliant job on them, and I too watched the movie, just recently in fact. I was really 'struck' at how good you did these characters. Just like characature work, that is how I view my Sims, as they are never 'exactly' true life looking. Kudo's to you, 5 stars coming from me and a thank you!

for those of you want to give five stars need only to open the message window to advanced and scroll down a little to rate the thread. :-)

I really love this movie, and you did an awesome jpb on making these all very attractive, but very unique individuals. Except Natalie Portman could use some work, she looks like shes in rehab or something. But I still love the other sims.
