Hi everyone!

My all-time-favorite eye creator is the amazing Barcelonista of . I love the realism and textures of her wonderful eyes, and she kindly gave me permission to recolor some of her sets and make defaults of them.

I like bright, but still realistic colors for my eye defaults. I want to be able to easily distinguish between the colors without having to zoom in 100%. And I don't like having two blues (dark and light) for defaults - instead I prefer a hazel (greenish-brown) color instead of the dark blue default eye color.

According to my personal preferences I made five recolors and defaults of each of the following sets:

Eyes 01
Eyes 02
Eyes 03 (can also be found here at MTS2 )
Eyes 06 (can also be found here at MTS2 )
Eyes 08 (can also be found here at MTS2 )

This is what some of my NPCs and sims look with these eyes (all these pics are examples for Barcelonista's eyes 06):

Some information about the sims in this picture:

Allison (the redhead) is a former NPC and face template #22 of my new face template set.
Skintone by Simcribbling
Hair by Aleesha
Eyebrows by zoej
Eyeshadow by LA Pink
Lashes by Anva
Lipstick by bruno
Clothes by Poison Ivy

Lance (the blonde guy) was born in my game.
Skintone by buffybot
Hair by simcribbling
Eyebrows and lashes by Helaene
Stubble and eyeshadow by LA Pink
Lipstick by AtomicSpaceKitty
Clothes by natef005

Roberta (the mail woman) is face template #9 of my new face template set.
Skintone by Simcribbling
Eyebrows by Helaene
Lipstick by bruno

Morris (the pizza guy) is face template #15 of my new face template set.
Skintone by Simcribbling
Eyebrows by Kamikitten

Please remember you may only have one set of eye defaults in your game, so remove any other eye defaults before downloading one of these!

Set 06 looks really, really great with your darker colors! I've always loved them, but I think they look better like this. Set 03 looks amazing though. Ahh the choices.

I'm glad you got permission to post these as I'm sure a lot of people will want these options for their favorite Barcelonista eyes.

Thanks for making darker defaults! I didn't use Barcelonista's eyes because they were too light for my taste

Thank you very much, everyone - but the real thanks should go to Barcelonista since she's the real artist behind these eyes ...

Thanks for doing these! Are you planning on doing her other eyes too? If so I'd love if you did her V4, I love them just the green isn't very green-y like yours. You're awesome! :D

Thank you! I haven't thought about that before, but I might give it a try, so thanks for suggesting that!
