Hey. I updated "Aviator Glasses with Clear Lends". Now available for both genders. Download at here. And I added separate files of "Ultra-Plain Faces" for various use. Check it at MTS.
And and, I changed the blog template. I will improve this blog little by little. And and and, that "Search This Blog" widget is sometimes broken at some words. It's a Google/Blogger's issue. I'll wait and see, for some time.

This is my way of taking sim pictures. I think there's no secret. It's a very very low-tech method. Even no need to Photoshop.

Welcome to my studio! It's a shoddy tiny shed. The reality is always insipid. Usually I put those lights, like this. And I always adjust brightness levels of lights according to a skin/object color. Those round floor mats are just markers for sim or light. Those flamingos haven't so much meaning. It's just for adding a color to background. No need to be flamingos. Only the reason is I love flamingo neons. When taking a picture in daytime, I get rid of table lamps, and sometimes put those windows by feelings. And I always use twallan's The MasterController  and "moveobjects on" and "hideheadlineeffects on"cheats.
Next, my low-tech method of taking screens with lighting effects, like my "Mock Mods Glasses" previews.... 




Paused the game and move her to good position. Then put lights, and changed the color of wall. Funny shot!
And this is the final result. That's all.




Samples: For your reference, these are original pictures of the "Mock Mods Glasses" previews.


These glasses were recycled from my "Wayfarer"-like eyeglasses. I used same textures, just modified the shape. Available for both genders, from child to elder.


These pictures are NOT photoshopped (except the frame of overlap image in second pic).

Did you know james_rocks89's Glasses Sliders? What an idea!! I never knew that, till I see HP's great "Doctor Who" today (Thanks for using my glasses).
And so coincidence. Right now I was modding my "Wayfarer Glasses" and creating new shape, just like transform by using those sliders. I wanted to know those much earlier! Well, I'll finish this glasses, anyway. It's fun to make an eyeglasses.

She is my "ultra-plain" series' model sim named Hinano Chiba. Um, to be honest, I'm not good at giving traits to sim. Change her personality as you like! And I use some custom slides. Please check details below.

He is my "Ultra-Plain" series' model sim. The model of this sim is Sam Winchester of "Supernatural (around season 1)", as someone had noticed (Thanks. I'm a bit surprised!). But I have a very high standard for Sam Winchester. :p. Tentatively I want to call this sim Sam Winchester version 1.0. Maybe in the future, I 'll update him. Eat him!
FYI: Sam WInchester is a character of TV series "Supernatural" and is portrayed by Jared Padalecki.




I'm using a bunch of sliders to make him a giant. The blue shirts guy is a default size sim.
And I have totally no idea about his traits/lifetime-wish. I'd like to pick your brain.

Finally. Done. Thank you for all your feedback! These are default and non-default face skins. For both gender, all ages (toddler to elder). These faces are MAXIS/EA-Match type, like my "Ultra-Plain Eyes". And I uploaded a package of "Face Overlay Fix" together. This fix removes female's unnatural lipstick and cleans eye white. This function is the same as missy harries' and -Shady-'s. My version is using EA's white of eye. (All previews use Face Overlay FIX.)



Comparison: Same color tone range as EA. More realistic details around eyes. Moderately sharp nose. Pretty nostrils. "Pudding"-free shading.

These are default replacement eyes and tricolor contacts(face mask) that have a plain texture like EA eyes. They don't have dramatic contrast. Instead, neat in-game and Maxis/EA-Match. It suits every sim, I think.
The default eyes are the same as this I up-loaded already.



Same size as EA. Smaller pupils. Defined outline. Similar color tone and fine texture.
