    I have a tutorial request!

    Makeup drawing for Photoshop! I know about Jillie's but is there any chance someone could make one for people who don't have a tablet? I'm getting one for Christmas but I know how hard it is to draw makeup without a tutorial to help XD

    Meep: Added, Ill spread this around to several sites and see if anyone can assist you. :}

    Although Im not sure how they can show you how to draw without a tablet, as it is really up to you to practice precision control with your mouse or trackpad.
    Theres alot of makeup tutorials for Gimp that can be translated to PS as well, perhaps hoping over to the threads themselves and asking the creator?

    Leniece:

    Making Windows: For this Im not sure what you mean. Do you mean how to make custom content windows? Or how to make see through walls with glass?
    If its the latter maybe this helps:
    Split-Level - [Tutorial] Creating a sunken room with floor-to-ceiling windows

    Or you can post this particular request in these threads over in the Creative Corner:
    List of tutorials or how do I do that?

    Comment: This is a great tutorial for a beginner, like myself! Some things either work or they don't depending on the picture, though, so sometimes I had to be VERY precise in what I did with the picture. Overall, it was easy to apply to the editing I was looking to do! :)

    Thank you for these guides!!! I know I'll use them a lot.

    I do have a quick question. I'm interested in entering a competition that says editing is allowed but the Sim must be on an in-game background. Sooo... I'm guessing I can shade and sharpen my model? Maybe adjust some color? I'm kind of afraid my entry will just look like a screenshot compared to everyone else's... :?

    EDIT: Basically, is there a specific tutorial you recommend for a beginner that doesn't want to embarrass himself?

    This is the one I'm interested in - I just love the theme! I've seen people mention editing in comps before and never knew exactly what they meant...

    fillupx333: Im glad that you will get some use out of these amazing tutorials! ^^

    For your question, do not be afraid to take in game images. They can be more beautiful than images edited to a point where you can not even recognize its the sims 3, beautiful in its own right but not in a sims 3 way.
    I prefer in game shots and intricate set ups with CC to edited in ones. ;}
    What the host means by editing is allowed but you can use only bg's in game, the editing she is referring to is skin smoothing of the sim, brightening the picture, changing hues, making it black and white, etc, editing the eyes..etc.
    I noticed that is is not NECESSARY to edit! So do not feel pressured to edit. And do not feel that your in game shots will not be good, it takes just as much time to create an in game set up scene as it take time to edit and cut out models and place them on backgrounds.

    Your second question, what type of editing programs are you most familiar with? I can better aid you in beginner tutorials for that specific program.

    I will right off the bat recommend:
    LadyEmillye's School of Editing!
    Programs Addressed:
    Gimp
    Photofiltre
    Photoscape
    Paint.net

    It is perfect for unsure beginners! LadyEm is patient and kind and helps you in ANY area that you want to work on, from creating in game set up's to those minimal editing that you want to try.




    MV: Thanks, but I already have it linked from Unbound.
    Also,did you ask permission from Beech to post her tutorial here? Perhaps if you had voiced to her over at Unbound your wish to see her tutorial over here, thinking that it would help many more users here as well, she would have posted it herself.
