Four Forever Rings @ Modthesims

The Four Forever Rings are now up at modthesims :) I have learned a lot about meshing and really enjoyed making them. So far, they seem to be a great success! I might make more rings; I kept thinking of making a skull ring during the project.

I really should finish up my vk makeup. I made sure there are two versions of most of them, one for guys and one for girls. The various eye shapes sometimes make it look funky. I have too many ideas and variations for each one :P I am tempted to keep making more Rose Shock ones, however my original focus was visual kei. There isn't a lot of content for this genre.

Once I'm done with that, then I can go back to Bandera and figure out what's wrong with the jowls slider. I know KT uploaded Beard-O at modthesims and commented that the jowls slider wasn't working for his creation either. Bandera has to cover the jaws and tuck into the back of the neck so there really isn't any way to avoid the jowls slider. I noticed there are some masks out there and in Seasons that simply float/hover around the jaw so there isn't clipping. IDK, I'm sure I'll figure it out. It's too bad I can only assign four joints to a vertex. Pesky jowls slider...

Four Forever Rings

For modthesims' theme "Time," I have decided to illustrate a love story expanding through the precious moments of two souls, told by four forever rings. These rings have presets which toggle between white gold, yellow gold, rose gold, and engravings. And yes, the four forever rings I created are up for download :) They are available for teen, young adult, adult, and elder female sims. They should show in: Naked, Everyday, Formalwear, Sleepwear, Swimwear, Athletic, and Career.


Couple's Birthstone Heart Ring

This story begins with the embrace of Brian and Jodi's young love. The birthstone heart ring is set in yellow gold and displayed here in sapphire - September - and opal - October. Their promised love is celebrated with their unique birthstones snuggling side by side. But will their love stand the test of time?

The actual ring composes one recoloarble area while the two heart-shaped gemstones each have their own recoloarble area. The first, fifth, and seventh designs do not have engravings. The second design has the engraving "Forever Yours." The third, fourth, and sixth designs have 'forever yours' engraved in Simlish.

Limbo

I have just noticed it takes a very long time to get a mod and accepted and posted onto modthesims, so I'm going to upload my stuff here and then there. But not now since I want my accessories finished first. I have decided what my theme for time will be - rings! Engagement rings, actually. My first one is half-way finished. I really wanted to make five of them but I don't know if they will get posted in time... Here's a little preview of one of them. I feel so proud and accomplished as a modder, I always wanted to create but I didn't think I had it in me to create! I meshed this myself and stole the design from Kay.

First ring in CTU, 2 recolorable channels
Once finished, both hearts will be recolorable separately

Purple Smoke and Flash Eyes

I absolutely LOVE the way Rose Shock does her makeup. I made an exact scale of her makeup onto the sims, but it didn't look right. Since the makeup goes into the arch, most eyebrows would be cut off by the eyeshadow. I made lined eyebrows that resembled the eyebrows Rose Shock draws on which fit perfectly with my eyeshadow. This would mean, however, that you would need my lined eyebrows in addition to the eyeshadow for them to show up properly. Not everyone likes the style of "drawn-on" eyebrows so I finally decided to scale down the eyeshadow in order to to fit with most eyebrows. You may notice the lined eyebrows in future posts (or in the anime and barbie post), which I hope one day to learn to create into actual eyebrows.

I present first, Purple Smoke. Three recoloarble channels: one for the eyeliner and two eyeshadow areas that blend together. They look fabulous when paired with my vintage lips.




Barbie and Anime Girl

I have made about 20 makeup items for female adults and I still have more for men! It really does take a lot of time to make sure everything is in order and all of the correct pictures have been taken. My name still hasn't been changed on modthesims and I'm wondering if I should just post them anyway...

Anyways, I am working on a project inspired by Valeria Lukyanova and Anastasiya Shpagina from the Ukraine. I didn't actually modify the facial structures of the sims to be the similar yet since I'm so lazy. I did make the makeup which does resemble them.  I haven't tried to model a sim after an actual person before, so I might come back to it later and actually make them in sim form. For now, I am happy there is at least a slight resemblance.

There is still a lot of work to be done! Hopefully I will finish them.
