Hi ^_^ Since it's not been posted yet and I've gotten requests for him, I decided to upload this sim. It's Balthier from Final Fantasy 12. He is an adult sim. This was one of the hardest sims I've had to render facially. It was very difficult because in most source photos his features aren't exactly symmetrical which doesn't translate easily in the sim world. haha. Anyway, I think after some tweaking I'm pretty close now..I hope!

His hair uses a Maxis mesh from Nightlife. Besides the hair, the rest of the sim should function in any game. The outfit is also a Maxis mesh. I had wanted to and it was suggested to maybe use a clothing mesh with a higher collar built into it. Ultimately I decided against that since all of the meshes with that feature had the incorrect pants type and I think that was more important to be correct.

I hope you enjoy him ^_^ (the creator 'sugarpuffsam' made an awesome Fran that would go along nicely with Balthier..check her out!)

You put a lot of effort into his clothing, it really shows.

Whoa! He's pretty close to the FF Balthier if I do say so. He's perfect! Downloaded and he would make a nice addition to Cloud, Sephiroth, Vincent, Squall, Kadaj, Yazoo, and Loz that I already have residing in an apt complex I built. ^_^ Strange that I only have FF male characters in my game, eh. LOL Thanks for sharing!

Thats why I love Final Fantasy 12. The characters have realistic faces but thats what makes them difficult to sim so you have done a superb job and I love you for it. And the clothes are great!

Life is like toast! Sometimes its golden and sometimes its burnt. Now go make me some toast- thats an order.
Whilst you was distracted by toast, I took over the world. Yes now you must make me some toast because I'm the queen.

Awesome, Balthier is my favorite FF12 character, I was hoping someone would make an awesome sim of him, and you did!

Oh, wow. Very accurate! You did a WONDERFUL job on his clothes as well as the skin tone. I took one look at the screen cap, thinking it was just a cap from FF12 and said "Hey, where's the Sim!?" But, upon realizing it WAS the Sim.. My jaw dropped like.. 10 feet! This is possibly the best game character inspired Sim I have EVER seen. Great job. I will use him with pride.

Fran rocks but Balthier is my favorite , also are you going to do Yuber from Suikoden? You've done such a great job with the other suikoden characters.

Hi there! Thanks so much!! <3 I'm not sure if I'm going to do Yuber or not but it has crossed my mind. I already have all of the meshes I would need for him so I just may.
