He really needs an afro, he didn't have hair this short, how about this one:
http://www.modthesims.info/download.php?t=110142 these might be a tad too big but you could convert this to a male one which would be perfect: http://www.modthesims.info/download.php?t=207062


It's ok, we all laugh-snort occasionally!
Check out some of my other stuff here.

yeah, honestly, i hate his eyes, because it seems like he's looking upward all the time.....
and both those afros seem too big to me...

I don't take requests. :-)

Ok, so I looked at threehundred's nose masks, which there are 3 possible ones I could use. I have them in individual pics. I personally like the first one.







What do you guys think? The colour is a teensy bit off.

About the eyes, do you want me to rotate them so the shine is on the sides and not the top and middle of the eyes?

Uh, DD, I already linked to the first one. XD
Too big.

MSB: I think you should, just to see how it would look.

hmm, I don't know. His eyes look kind of... unrealistic. :/

Hmm... I'm no expert. It is from a real photo, but not of him. I just changed the colour a bit and added in little shading. I don't know what else I could do.

First, of all, the eyes still need to be scaled down. They are just too unrealistically big. Second of all, why don't you try some of Shady's eyes? Like this one, http://www.modthesims.info/download.php?t=314189

For the hair, if you could convert this, this would be perfect. http://www.modthesims.info/download.php?t=216505

it's the white space at the bottom that makes them look like he's looking upwards....

I don't take requests. :-)

Simalicious: That hair is PERFECT! How do you convert it to male? I will also give those eyes a try too.

Wicked_poppies: You're right. I'll lower them.

You shouldn't really have to modify the mesh, seeing as you're converting female child to male child right? From what I understand, you only have to modify the mesh if your converting teens, young adults, adults, and elders, since the male and female heads have different shapes. But toddler and children have the same head shape. So yeah, all you should have to do is a little fiddling in SimPE.

oh alright. So it shouldn't be that hard. Ok, I'll try it later tonight. Thanks guys!

It looks really good! But I would widen the chin a click, I think. Same with the lips. And maybe round out the cheeks a little bit more? Also, on the most recent version the jaw line is looking a bit too square... more like you'd see on a teen/adult face. I actually think the "after" version in post #16 looks closer than the one in #23. (Although the smaller eyes are definitely better.)

And it's such a shame MJ went all crazy with the plastic surgery as an adult, he was an adorable kid!

About that afro... it's only for young adult and up. So can I change the age in simpe?

I can't help you with SimPE because I fail at it, but I can tell you that the nose looks...almost square now, which is kind of odd. And the cheeks need to be pushed back a little, and the nose needs to be wider.

thank you, I don't mind nitpicking at all

So then for the nose, should I just use one of those nose masks?

I could help convet the hair, if you like. If you just want it for kids, I can do that.

EDIT: Just saw the post that it's YA and up. Can you get permission to edit the mesh?

I will try to get permission. simgirl, that would just be so awesome and so kind if you could convert it. I'm not great with the tech stuff.

Anyways, I asked for permission to convert the afro. I'm sure it'll be fine
