Kota, this is a thread for you... :D
Ok, since yesterday I've got the Sims 2 for PC. Some of you know this game, you can build your own characters and world. The possibilites are really limited, but I try my best Image
This was my first try of a Sims Wakey

Image
with all the features of the game to build and create a face...
tonight I found out how to "hack" the game and tried it with another version of Rick...here's my old Rick:
Image
wwwooooohhhh...scary! This virtual character has a lot in common with our real Wakey, hasn't he?
Now the next step for me to create the perfect hairstyle.
That's it for now, but I'm going to tell you more about my project.

Awesooooome! Yeah, there's tons of customizable stuff that you can download after searching around- I used to play it a lot a couple years ago when my sister got it. Think I had a Jon Anderson one, hehe~~~ The young band might be easier to make at first, but your old Rick is great! The skin texture is working. After downloading enough custom made things, you start understanding more how it works and then you can start customizing yourself as long as you have some sort of image editing program! ;) I prefer Photoshop, but I'm sure you could use other ones... but it's not too hard. Like changing the colors of things or the shapes... there's probably even some tutorials online about how to do it. :D

Awwww now you're making me wanna play Sims...... *cries* Keep us posted on your work!!!

*wants to see the whole band living in one big house together... that would be hilaaarious!*

Now I'm just working on Rick's wonderful longe blonde hair...that's much more difficult than his face...phew...
It was so difficult to find a long hair mesh for men...
I also prefer Photoshop (Elements), and of course, I will build a Yes house with all five members, but Rick has to be the first in this game ;)

That stuff Is really great Nina!!
I like seeing how Wakey has Progressed
and now has his little cross and music suit on
and of course your favorite Place for Wakey...
The Bathtub
I thought Wakey Put his hair in Pony tail when he took a bath?
Just kiddin
that's excellant work!!
as is all of your work
and the underlying sense of humor you add to it is very "Wakesque"
I love Wakey Too!!!
He makes a marvelous Cartoon Character as well.
