This is my attempt at Thom Yorke, as requested. He is the singer/guitarist for the British band Radiohead, who have released the albums 'Pablo Honey', 'The Bends', 'Ok Computer', 'Kid A', 'Amnesiac', and 'Hail to the Thief'.

(Due to the constraints with the game, I was unable to capture the asymmetry of Thom's face, so I chose to make the sim as close as possible to one side of his face, as shown in the halved picture.)

He has custom skin, eyes, and clothing made by me.

His clothes consist of jeans and a radiohead tshirt for the song 'We Suck Young Blood' featuring some of the lyrics for the song.

His hair is a recolour (and very slight alpha edit) of hair made by anniegalpim, the mesh for which can be found here: http://www.modthesims2.com/showthread.php?t=70142

Many thanks to the original creator of the mesh.

I am currently having problems with my graphics editing program (it will neither open nor save pictures), after I get that fixed I will have more screenshots and comparison pictures available.

---EDIT---

I've just uploaded the additional screenshots and comparisons. There's also a set of screenshots with a closeup of the clothing.

Holy... :jaw: Gosh!
I'm struck by two things:
1) Thom Yorke rocks; it's so great to see somebody has made him - I actually didn't expect it to happen...ever.
2) Such an amazing likeness!!!
Great eye you have, whiteshadows! :thumb:

Wow!
I'm a huge Radiohead fan, as well as a Simmer, and it was amazing to see that someone had actually made Tom! But to see someone actually make a realistic Tom is awesome- greatt work, thanks so much!

Wow. Thanks for the kind words.

I was terribly afraid that it looked like Guy Pearce from 'Memento' and not Thom, but maybe I was just being paranoid since everyone seems pretty pleased.

I've got more screenshots that'll be up soon, since I've got my graphics program fixed.

I'm also going to (eventually) try my hand at the rest of the band, but I'd like to at least make some more radiohead shirts soon. I actually made a few before, but I wasn't as pleased with the quality of the background, so I'm going to have another go at them. They'll look similar to these though:



I made those at the same time I made some shirts for other bands. They're all based off of actual radiohead shirts. I've actually got the last one myself.

Your incredible!! That looks just like him!! Thank's soo much, all my girl sims can fall in love now!
I have a really cool long sleeve red Radiohead shirt I got at a concert that would look cool on sims. If I ever figure out how to get pictures on here I'll show you.
Once again the sim is amazing! :nod:

Whiteshadows, that is the single most accurate sim likeness I have ever seen - I had to look twice to determine which was the 'real' half of your composite photo!

What's the best way to make God laugh?
