(Also known as 'omg not more previews to make please shoot me')

Behold, the skintone of much work and a silly name! This was a result of me getting really fussy and annoyed I couldn't find a skintone without at least one thing that annoyed me to distraction. When I made it, I first thought I'd release it... somewhere... but speshul snoflake ToSes kinda quashed that until now.

Policy: the usual--credit, no paysites, futz with it as you like.

This skin is my compromise between uber glowy, realistic, and stylized enough to look good with Maxis stuff. As a result, it looks really good with a variety of eye styles. (1. Phobia's edit of Sarha's eyes, 2. Rensim's Mayday eyes, 3. Pooklet's edit of Rensim's Confutatis eyes, 4. Yumedust's Eyelove eyes)

I also wanted more/different definition than most skins offered, but still bland enough to look good with a variety of face character masks. (1. Plain, 2. Simple Life eye and nose masks, IcedMango lips, 3. Simple Life eyemask, Louis nosemask, Atomic Space Kitty lips, 4. Simple Life eyemask, Rensim face character, my basegame default replacement lips)

All fitness levels have different morphs. Teens share adult textures. Children through adults have the same faces; elders have wrinkles, toddlers fewer teeth, and babies none. Female skins have nipples, bits, and some pubic fuzz of a neutral colour. Male skins have a hint of a treasure trail but naught else since I equip them with a Crammyboy.

In addition to the six main skintones I made two blends with Enayla skins. This gave them slightly different nose definition, made them a bit pinker and gave them a bit of a blush. I was going to do more but as usual got distracted by other things.


HP for the Idolatry of Flesh skintone I used as a base
Enayla for the Pixie skins I blended into the extra skins
Rensim for the Circonflex v.2 skin I blended many of the details from
Louis, Allen ABQ, and Navetsea for this and that

No thanks to:
Mediafire, for crapping out 97% of the way through the first time I tried to upload these files. >:[
My slow ass for taking way too long to set up and take all of these eamples and swatches

Download the six main skintones
Download the two extra skintones

And, if you want the Light (s1) through Dark Tan (s4) skins as defaults--
Download the Dependant default file You must have the main skintones for this to work!

Aaand finally, if you want to make a blend from this skin you can ask me for the original bmps of the shade you want to use as a base. Because they are OMFG ginormous even zipped up, I'm only going to send you ONE shade, so choose carefully. :P

I yoinked these with extreme prejudice :D Thank you for uploading them :D

(And erk on the mediafire crapping out at 97% >< I had that happen the other day with an absurdly large file, with an absurdly tiny amount to go)

Thank you! These seem to have just the right amount of glow; I think you've done a beautiful job.

I've been using your last skintone set for ages and it's still my favorite by far :).

Of course, I had to download this one too! I can't wait to try it out with my sims. It looks very nice!

Thank you very much!

This is a long time later, but I just found these. I like the way you think: going for that balance between photo-ish, and toonish, and leaving out some of the excessive shine, and gently indicated anatomy! And geneticized, too, yum.

Thank you. The only think that would make me even happier is a couple more dark shades . . .

I'm using your "snackies" skintones right now and am very tempted to add these into the mix! Really beautiful, I've always loved the yellow-ish-ness of Rensim skins, but they don't really fit into my idea of Maxis Match.

Very nice

These look very beautiful and good peace of work! But I'm sorry for ask for something else. Do you have still original Idolatry of Flesh bmps somewhere? Because I have a skin project in need of them and sadly, HP's own site is down and I can't get them just anywhere.

I love these skins, and have been using them for a while now! If it's possible could you send me the bmp's? I want to make some supernatural skins for my game.

-I'm not quite sure which shade would give me the best results so If you still have them I'll take whichever one you think is best.-

Thank you!

Thank you very much! The Tan tone should work just fine; I can't wait till I can get started working on them.
