Hi everyone

This is a set of new skintones from me. Some resemble a few of my earlier, but they're new, much improved versions: I've edited some little deficiencies in their design (moved nipples, fixed edges etc) and I like the new versions a lot more. 'Sweet Fall' is very close to my old 'Fresh Summer', but a bit more freckled and slightly darker. I've softened some of the details – like the shading around the eyes and mouth, that made the old skins look a little aged in some lights.

What you see here in the pictures are the 'normal' versions of the skintones... the 'cut' tone is more defined, the soft one less. The skins are available for all ages, but they are not replacement skins. There is no makeup used in these pictures. The eyebrows and eyes are not included this time, but you can find them with my earlier skins. I'll do a pack with eyes only later on.

I hope I got this right. This is the first time I've tried to supply a .package file instead of the regular, difficult-to-install kind of file. As far as I can tell, only the skintones should be in the files. If this is not the case, please tell me so that I can adjust this. These SHOULD be usable regardless of what EPs you have.

The skintones are as follows,

Alabaster –

A creamy pale skintone.

Rich Earth –

A rich, earthy skintone with a light golden touch.

Porcelain Doll –

A desaturated skintone with blushed cheeks and details.

The Fae –

An extremely pale, bluish skin

Blue Midnight –

A very dark, bluish tone.

Rich Gold –

Deep golden skintone.

Sweet Fall –

A warm, freckled skintone with a golden touch.

Dusk –

A deep, dusky kind of brown – less golden than 'rich earth'.

You are allowed to include these skins with your Sims pretty much anywhere – as long as it is not a donation or pay site and you take care to link back here Enjoy!

I am so in love with these skintones but for some reason they don't come out looking quite right in my game. Maybe it's just bodyshop or my less than stellar graphics card (geforce fx 5550) but they come out looking either too blue or a bit too green? It's such a shame because these are the most exquisite skintones I've ever seen and would LOVE to use them. Anyone else have this problem?

These are amazing...I love the shiny feel to them, and the rich glow that they seem to let off. It's going to take awhile, but I am definately downloading these.
