    Hey guys, does anyone know where I should post my Sims Next Top Model thing?
    It isn't like a competition, it's just my own version of next top model

    So you'd like to share a sim of yours? You can post a new thread to showcase it or you can post it here ^_^

    Hey everyone! Which of the 3 pictures should I use as my avatar? She's currently my favorite sim, but I can't decide what picture to use.

    No it's like a story, sort of :P
    Like you know the top model program on tv? I've made a sims version, but it's only a picture version.
    I didn't know if people would get annoyed if I started a thread here, and if I should post it in stories and legacies instead?

    Also, just thought I'd share a pic of a sim I made for my little brother! He asked me to make a weird looking sim, I think it turned out looking almost like a goblin of some sort, lol!

    MissBrite is it okay to post on your modeling competition thread? You didn't really give a go post so I wasn't sure if you needed the space or not :?

    heres some tips

    headshots:

    Use tab key then move the arrows forward
    Zoom all the way in
    Then back up with the arrows if needed
    Move the arrows left and right to center it on your sims face
    Though before you hit tab key
    Make sure the camera is pointed straight at your sim at full body shot length
    I also use the mod that causes less sensitivty in the camera movements so it moves slower and easier to control
    Also the mod that lets you zoom in without the sims head dissapearing
    And use a bright light infront of the sim on the floor
    Expieriment
    And shift plus a & d rotates the camera
    Rotate only a little and it can create creative looks

    Also for bodyshots the same thing
    Tab key
    Rotate all the way to the right after the camera is at the sims torso
    Then move the cam to get all the sim in


    The freecam mod is good too

    More headshot tips! 8D

    In cameraman mode, hold shift and a to rotate the camera so that your sim appears in a horizontal position.

    Example:

    9077420984_f202c2f731_c.jpg

    You'll find that having your sim on a horizontal angle means that you can zoom in so much closer without cutting off vital parts of the sim. (Ever have the annoying trouble of the top of the sim's head ends up cut off? This cures it. ;) )

    When you get out of the game, right click on your sim and rotate the image to a vertical position and crop/edit it to your desire.

    If you can see, I had to resize the original image before I could post it onto the forums, otherwise it would break the page layout. By rotating it, I can keep it at it's original size.

    This trick allows you to post full resolution images, which gives you an amazing quality image on the forum page. :)

    Example:

    9069642242_e309d03b63_o.png


    I hope this makes sense and helps someone XD
