Beetlejuice Animated Series Art Prints

Hello and welcome to my very first mod!

As a fledgling modder, I am starting small so most of my mods for now are going to be derived from objects that came with the game. I hope to eventually work my way up to adding new animations to the game with Blender and to creating new harvestables and recipes for the kitchen since those kinds of mods are some of my favorites to play with.

This first mod of mine is extremely simple. It is a recolor of one of the existing in-game paintings with several different "swatches" to choose from. I managed to change the amount of simoleons required to purchase the object but would like to also find out how to edit the "environment" effect. If someone knows how to do that and can teach me, that would be great!

Now, about the subject I chose for this first mod... It's my favorite cartoon series. The way this came about was that I was searching the internet for Beetlejuice Animated Series related Sims 4 mods and- surprise, surprise- I came up with nothing. Nada. Zilch. Zero. Pretty disappointing since Beetlejuice and Lydia from the cartoon, as well as Charles, Delia and Percy have been Sims gameplay staples for me for at least three different Sims games now. I noticed that as the years went on, people started to forget about the cartoon and it reflected in the lack of mods. There used to be ponchos I could use for Lydia and a lot of hair and makeup that I could use for Beetlejuice. Needless to say, I was very disappointed. With my lack of modding know-how for the Sims 4, I cannot yet create the costume items that I need to really complete my token Beetlejuice themed file but we all have to start somewhere, right? So I figured that Beetlejuice and Lydia can for now at least have some framed art prints inspired by their animated series. I can sometimes be a pretty quick learner when it comes to things that interest me and modding the Sims is very interesting to me, so who knows what tomorrow will bring for me? How my knowledge might expand?

I hope you enjoy my first mod and have a defrightful Halloween 2021.

Edit: Please note that the art used is not my own. I used images that I found on Google. I lost track of who most of the artists are but I do remember one whose work I admire alot. His/Her/Their tumblr name, I think, is SuztheSnooze. Suz is the creator of Pollux and his little sister, both of which are in images on this mod.
