Mini edit
Sorry for the double post, but I have a quick mini edit

Nefertiti:
More neutral blush
decreased mouth corner's rotation to get rid of the perma-smile
and try as I might I cannot get the colored part of her eye to touch her bottom lid....any suggestions?

Akhenaten:
small adjustments to eyes (to me they looked flat at the bottom)
small experiments on the nose, (still can't get rid of the shading under the nostrils)

General changes, I followed some tips I found on another post about using a blue, magenta and fame colored light as well as small one from buydebug and I like the lighting much better.

as always comments and feedback are appreciated,
Sincerely,
Katie

The only thing I see is that, maybe, the king needs a little more fullness in the jowls/below the cheekbones. He looks a bit gaunt compared to the model. You've done a great job! Good work!

Thanks SimmyRN, I'll see what I can do. and thank you for the compliment, but really if it weren't for you and everybody-else I wouldn't have made it this far.

Ok for now I'm just gonna include some picture's of Nefertiti, as sorta of a picture test to see what kinda pictures I need and how I can make those better. Now I've seen a lot of lighting tutorials but can never find a good combination, they're either too dark and you can hardly see or too bright and make the sims look plastic.

Also Note: in the first set of pics I had Nefertiti use the tanning machine because it's has close as I could get to an ideal skintone. I've also tried a lot of poses/animations so you can see some actual emotion.

So yeah just a let me know what you think of the pictures, let me know if I can do anything to make them better.

also I'm trying my summary for when I upload, for now all I have is the CC list

(optional) Sims 3 Store Content (not included)
*Simple Celtic Dress (from Dragon valley)
[U]
(optional) Custom Content(not included ):
http://www.modthesims.info/download.php?t=396676 By http://www.modthesims.info/m/787930 ( I use the full package)
http://www.modthesims.info/download.php?t=397231 By http://www.modthesims.info/m/295890 ( I used the regular default and the ishadow, and contacts)
http://www.modthesims.info/download.php?t=449829 By http://www.modthesims.info/m/4916404


*I use this for her outwear, if you don't have it that's fine, the base game strapless formal dress in outerwear works just as well

Thank you and I'm including more with her actual skin tone. also when I included the CC list I couldn't get the names to show up as the links instead it's just regular links is it because they're from MTS or am I doing it wrong.

Again I appreciate any help I can get,

If you want people to be able to click on the name and go to the link, you have to type it like this: [ url=link ]name [/url] without the spaces. For example Tropical Starter - Base Game & No CC. I apologize if that's not what you're asking. Someone gave me the information and I find it very helpful and space saving when putting together lists. Hope this helps!

Long overdue update. Nefertiti
Okaaaaaaaaaaay, after a long over due absence I'm back, I've got -hopefully, better pictures.



Not included, CC List:
Store Content Optional
Simple Celtic Dress (from Dragon valley)
Sarong Along with me

Skinramps by Procasimnation

^now on the page it'll tell you how it looks depends on what type of default skin you're using. So I followed the link on the page:

Starfruit by Kurasoberina (I use the original default -hairless version)
Note the skin is slightly anatomical, mainly on the chest (both male and female) (and for the females down below)

now of course Nefertiti is uploaded with BASEGAME default skin, so if you wish to use another skin tone that's fine, but I can't guarantee she'll exactly look the same as pictured.

Oh my Tiffany! -an eye set- Default replacement and iShadow By Escand
EA Face Overlay Fix (full Package) By missy harries

Egyptian eyeliners, fixed By piezoelectric
Now some notes on Nefertiti's wardrobe, I've been fiddling with S3OC and managed to clone the LA skinny-dipping towel and set it for sleepwear as it looks more historically accurate, However whether this effects how she appears in other peoples games I don't know, if it's a problem, let me know and I'll find something else.
Same for Athletic I downloaded a de-necklaced version of the mermaid sarong from the store and set it to Athletic

Basically that's it, the only real changes I've made was I gave her a more reddish lipstick.

So, questions? Comments? Advice? all are welcome

All are welcome,
--Katie

I think she looks great! (Jaw corners are a tiny bit sharp/angled - L - but I'm not sure you can change that.) Chin might be pulled a little too far forward from the side or need to be tilted down some. Excellent work!

Thanks for the compliments. And for being Helpful as always

I worked a bit on her jaw shape, so it's less angled. although I'm worried I went a bit too far. Also I played a bit with the Chin Height, depth and under lip depth. So Hopefully she's even closer.

Um I changed the wardrobe a bit since I figured it bit less complicated then having to re-categorize things.

Also I have question, I know sims are supposed to be uploaded with Base game default skin, as mentioned above I have a default replacement skin in game do I have to remove that from my game before saving her for upload?

Again any advice or feedback is welcome.

Maybe shorten the chin a bit more (up and down/tallness) and make it a little wider/squarer. The model's face is very square. She is gorgeous! Great job! I'm afraid I can't help with the upload as I've never packaged a sim. Hopefully, someone else can provide guidance.

again thank you for the compliment and that's okay.

I shortened the chin and I also increased the scale so it was wider.

I'm not including as many pics as last time, but I am including comparison pictures.

Again any and all advice/feedback is welcome.

And if anyone can help with the skin/upload thing I'd appreciate it.

You don't need to remove default skin, only non-default, if I remember correctly. Just remember to say that it's not included and will be required for likeness

Perhaps just a little bit better lighting - try the debug lights (ctrl+c - testingcheatsenabled on - buydebug), there are some upright ones that are good for lighting faces. Your pictures are much better now than at first And the angles are just fine

I'm Baaaaack! sorry for the lack of updates, I've gotten distracted and still trying to figure out the lighting thing :/ the only lights I usually sue are the buydebug lights mentioned above but either they're to dark or bright :/ If any can tell me or show me an ideal lighting set up I'd be grateful, even if it doesn't have the mod.

for now just some basic screenshots of Nefertiti

Update Changes:
None

I think these shots are fine but, if you want more facial lighting, what I usually do is put a ceiling light(s) above, floor lamps on either side, and the spotlights on the floor directly in front and angled from either side. I've seen discussion about other lighting set ups here, as well. Slightly lightening the background wallpaper might help too. Great work!

I'll have a look at the instructions, and thank you. Yes I saw the world is pretty neat.

As for an update, bad news is still can NOT find the game disc.....may have to order new one? Know it's off topic but I still have all the game (latest is into the future.) installed on my PC I just took out the disc and lost it, so can I just by a replacement game and use the Disc?

Since you own the game and it is still installed, NRaas has a no cd mod, that allows you to play without the disc.

Looks great! Does she need a hair for nightwear? Did Egyptian queens wear wigs and so were bald at night? The short dress for athletic may not be very accurate, but it would probably be hard to find a simple, plain, long dress that would work. Hope to see her uploaded soon!
