Alegra Cole Models (A.C.M) is proud to feature eight professional models [four males/four females] in the new sim-series — 8th and Ocean Season One: Quest To Find The New Face of A. C. M. In 8th and Ocean episodes (rounds), our models will be getting booked by major companies (who want their products advertised) or they just might be getting assignments directly from the boss herself, Ms. Alegra Cole.

http://img523.imageshack.us/img523/7969/assignmentstextcopyru9.jpg


As with any modeling agency some models will have different assignments. This could be based on a model’s performance in previous rounds or just because one cannot expect a company to book all models for the same product or advertisement—very expensive! What ever the situation, these models are competing for a top spot in A.C.M . Whether you are modeling Dolce & Gabbana cologne or a plain old bar of soap, you should come with 110% each round.


http://img74.imageshack.us/img74/5625/eliminationstextcopybg6.jpg

After each episode, there will be a meeting with the Creative Management Team (C.M.T) and cast of 8th and Ocean(the contestants) in which they discuss your performance in the previous episode. Unfortunately, the two lowest scoring male and female models will receive a “phone-call” (a PM titled “A Phone Call”) from Ms. Alegra Cole, herself, in order to tell them that A. C. M is no-longer interested in their modeling service and to seek another agency, to pack their bags, and head home. The other models will also be receiving a congratulatory “phone-call” telling them to prepare for the next episode of 8th and Ocean.

Spectators of this contest will be able to see the models who where sent home (due to their missing photo in the group shot). They will also be able to read the comments given to the models by the C.M.T.

**A.K.A judges(C.M.T)**


C.M.T consists of four “experts” divided into three categories:

[simsartthat (http://forums.sims2community.com/member.php?u=159411)]– Photography: Looks at how well the company, particular product, clothing item is advertised. Pays close attention to set design, lighting, and mood of photo
[fashionfrenzy (http://forums.sims2community.com/member.php?u=161805)]– Hair/Make-up Specialist: One word, beauty/handsomeness. Main focus is make-up and hairstyle choice. (Might have to suggest if a model gets a haircut, extensions, dyed, etc).
[tyler2009 (http://forums.sims2community.com/member.php?u=145116)] [jaela (http://forums.sims2community.com/member.php?u=138404)] – Creative Directors: **Important** you need to have judged a contest before apply to this position. Focuses on “creative aspects” of the photo, including (but not limited to): outfit choice, poses, facial expressions, props, etc.
Criteria: Judging Spots Filled
When you apply for a position on the Creative Management Team, please send me (PM) a headshot of your sim and a description of your sim’s experience in the field you are applying for (you can make this up). All of this is especially necessary for the “elimination ceremony”. Thanks.

4 rounds --> two eliminations after each (2 contestants)
Season Finale --> 2 contestants --> 1 winner

[X] – Application:
July 5th – July 10th
Countdown (http://www.bleacheatingfreaks.com/makeacountdown/?id=298327) - CLOSED IT AN HOUR EARLY!

As stated earlier, this competition will feature only eight models. This means that out of all of the models that apply, four females and four males will be chosen to compete in 8th and Ocean Season One: Quest To Find The New Face of A. C. M.This just might be the hardest round of this competition. That being said, a substantial amount of pictures will be required for this round. Thus allowing the judges to fully assess and grow with your model.

**But dont worry there will only be a MAX of TWO Photos per round, if there are more you can personally slap me

Please include the following information and pictures in your application portfolio:

|Name | Age | Sex | Height | Weight | Hair | Eyes|
|one black and white headshot|**From shoulders-up. no-make-up. No facial hair. No accessories. Plain background**
|two body-shots| **Be colorful. Don’t be too “dressy”(formal) . Show energy/personality. You can choose background**
|up to two portfolio/free-shots| **Optional(but may ultimately decide if you should/shouldn’t be in this competition).**
Finally…

Confess it to Alegra:

**there will be a mandatory confessional to Ms. Alegra Cole each episode***

“Tell Me About Yourself” (kind of self-explanatory)

Get to know the ALEGRA COLE MODELS models:

(from top left-counter clockwise)

Aiyanna Chantal - with A.C.M for 1.5 years currently seeking new agency (ONE)
Ani Zimmer - with A.C.M for the longest, 3 years. Ani loves the fact that he can express himself through modeling.
Britt Bolden - New to A.C.M (thanks to cherificsim ;))
Micheal Anderon - with A.C.M for 7 months. "Mike" is an all-american guy who hates modeling in speedos.
WHERE'S ALEGRA COLE?

Well, she's alittle occupied right now (as any CEO of a modeling agency would be) But I am pretty sure that she may pop in and out of the rounds to say a few words. Who knows, maybe she will host a round, idk. But in the mean time these 4 models will take care of it!

About Me: My name is Ridley, which is slightly unique in my opinion. When people see my name they assume I'm a guy which really turns out to be a shock to them! I love modeling. I also love photography. I practice my photography skills on my sister Khori who also wants to model. I love pizza and ice cream and watching gilmore girls. I have an extremly attractive personal trainer and I can't say that that isn't my main motivation for hitting the gym ;). I'm bubbly and outgoing and some day I want to go sky diving. I promise I'm not crazy!

“Tell Me About Yourself”
I'm Katie Miller, 23. I've been with another modeling agency way back when I was 16 but quit when I turned 17 to focus on my studies. Now that I've graduated I decided that I would continue to pursue a modeling carreer. I'm a self-taught acoustic guitarist. I love photography and my speciality is emotive potraits. I'm not really your typical model stereotype thus making me unique but I like to think that I'm very versatile.

“Tell Me About Yourself”

Hi! My name is Annie and I am currently studying Dance and Drama at The Dance School of Scotland in Glasgow. When I was younger I wanted to be a ballerina but I grew too tall. I've done some modelling at the Glasgow School of Art, and as you can see I like to change my hair colour to suit my mood.

Hi! My name is Madison Danielle Vier. I am 21 years old, and I am studying avdertising design at the Savannah College of Art & Design in Savannah Georgia. At school I model in a lot of the student designer shows. I never really thought that I'd get so many compliments as a model. I've always considered myself kind of frumpy and awkward. This is a big step for a girl from South Carolina.

Sure you can make a male model. BTW, i didnt add Eva to the list because her app wasnt completed at the time (you just had her name and other info). But i will add you now, but it wont be the 6th spot, though. And it is the same situation with waynesim.

This one is not exactly B&W, but I hope it's ok. Pam is so fairly colored that true B&W looks just blah. But if it's not ok than tell me, I'll think of something.
P.S. More to come, just need to reinstall the game. All of sudden the mods aren't working at all =(

Well.. I am Astrid. Now that that is out of the way, I grew up poor, consider myself somewhat of an existentialist, enjoy coffee houses and live bands. I received a dual education from the university and also from 37th street... I will hurt anyone that comes near my White Stripes CD.. I suppose those are the basics.

But the thing is, I'm going on vacation from the 16th to the 22nd. . . would it be possible to put up the days for each round so I can see if I should join or not?

About Myself
All my life it’s all about travelling and I fell in love with it since I was 2. I thanked my parents big time for taking me all over the world which is good experience. After my parents passed away in car accident in South Africa, i moved to Australia where i was born to change my life and i belive that modelling will change my life.

“Tell Me About Yourself”
Hi, Alegra. That seems too informal, but that’s your call, not mine. I’m Jake. I was born in Los Angeles, California, on December 19, 1983 to Stephen and Naomi Garrison. He’s of partial Swedish heritage, and my mother is of Ashkenazi Jewish heritage. I’ve graduated from high school and college (Dartmouth) and have been traveling around the U.S. trying to learn where I’ll best fit in. I’m single, and my favorite critters are my dogs: a German Shepherd named Atticus and a Pug named Boo Radley after characters in my favorite book, To Kill a Mockingbird.

About Myself
I was born and rasied in Simburbia by my parents, Ben and Carol. My father is a business tycoon and my mom stayed home and took care of me and my two brothers. As a child I competed in several pagents and dance competitions. I recently graduated from The University of Simburbia with a masters degree in communications. I hope to become a model and act as a positive role model for girls around the world. Eventually I plan to break into the world of advertising and design and start my own magazine.

Laci's Bio:
I had pretty much an average upbringing... good parents, good home, good student, etc., etc. - nothing too exciting. I guess the most interesting fact about me is all through school I was considered the nerdy, unpopular girl. I always got great grades, studied all the time, wore hideous glasses, had an awful case of zits, wore braces - are you getting the picture? I didn't date at all through high school, probably because no boy ever asked me out. Once I got out of high school and went away to college my life definitely took a change for the better. Amazing how those awkward teen attributes can blossom into something much better. I'm now very comfortable with myself and no longer have those shy, self-doubting tendencies.

| Re: Rowan |

Isn't this both the easist and most dreaded question? Something about myself - well, I'm Rowan, 20 years of age, originally from Wales. As it is I still study Photography and Design, but i have been modelling for about two years.
Really, I have never thought of myself as very handsome, especially not in the male-model sense - I have red hair and freckles, I look like I'm perpetually 15... But a friend of mine, a photographer, had taken my picture for his portfolio, and somehow by a stroke of fortune it landed in the right hands. I have modelled ever since, and loved it more than I ever expected to.
I come from a modest background, grown up in the beautiful welsh country-side. The mysteries and the fairytales of my culture drive me, inspire me, flow in my blood - and I always strive to represent myself well in tribute to myself and my heritage.

About Me
Where do i begin.........Well i've been doin modeling for sometime now. I got my start in the Miss Essence contest cycle 2 and i placed third. From there I done more contests. I made top 5 in many contests i've done. Then I was signed to Jewell Modeling Agency (www.Jewellmodels.net) where i was the cover model, and i'm also in the hall of fame section and i have one of the largest portfolios at the agency. I worked so much i had no time for myself. I took a break from modeling and a met my hubby Tyran. We got married and i got pregnant with QUUINTS! Boy was that difficult. I held the babies till the 7th month and they all were under 2lbs. they were so tiny. Now they are 5 years old now and now it's time to get back into this modeling thing. time to get my name back out there.

i'm done i think lol. If i forgot anything let me know cuz i tend to leave things out my app cuz i'm stupid lol. gl ya'll!!

Tell Me About Yourself

I am the youngest of five brothers, which means that I came in for quite a bit of teasing when we were children, but my brothers and I have always been close and willing to help each other out of jams. My brothers Aldo and Harro have become successful in acting and modeling, but I never really thought about giving it a try until now. (Actually, Aldo said, "Hey, Art Nerd, get your nose out of that book and try something new!")
I am the artist in my family, and tend to spend my time painting, sculpting, and reading. I see modeling as another form of artistic expression, and I can't wait to give it a try.

Tell me about yourself: Modeling has been a passion of mine since I was 4. My mother died when I was born so my dad had to raise me himself. He was a model. He didn't want to be one of those parents that left their kids with the nanny so I went with him on all his shoots. I would watch him as he worked and it looked like so much fun. I moved to the states when I turned 19. There were more opportunities for me here but daddy stayed behind.

Great Entries Everyone! I am updating the Cast list Now

*Just a reminder, there are about 13 hrs left to apply**

**also, to those who did apply, make sure that your PM Box is clear, because you will get a "phone-call" from Alegra Cole, stating that you made the final eight. And just letting you know you will have to do a bodyshot in swimwear for the groupshot (that is separate from round one, but needs to be in as soon as soon as possible ;))"**

@lillian: Sorry to hear that :( but What was the name of your model so I can take her off the list?

Lol, don't be nervous. But, yes, once I recieve the results from the judges, you can probably expect a "phone-call". There wont be any comments this round, because it would literally take a toll on the judges, lol.

But I will pm, the judges soon, so that they can get a head start.

Also, make sure your PM box is clear/has enough space because ALEGRA COLE does not leave messages ( **meaning if it is full your spot just might go to someone else**)

@ kiki: honestly, i wanted to wait until i recieved the bodyshot in swimwear from the top 8 (when i post the group picture,) So it would be a surprise! To everyone ;) But that would mean that the swimwear pic would have to be pmed back to me asap. And I would put up Episode One, but would ask that the final eight not post their pics until after the groupshot is up!

But believe me, if you make or if you dont you will definetly know who the Final Eight......eventually :lol:

Another thing to the contestants:

I am pretty sure that there will not be a 4 males or 4 females (exactly, but there will be only 8 models) This is because I am finding out now that some of the female models are scoring higher than some of the males and VICE-VERSA!

***Secret: If you have questions, please pm me. I want it to be a surprise when people find out who the Top 8 is.

How can it be a surprise? If we didn't get a PM, we were eliminated, so we all already know.... That is, unless we care beyond how we did individually. I've not been on any pins and needles about the other contestants.

model: britt bolden



No Chanel or Deisel Ads just yet, because you just can't start off at the top right away.. We have to get your Alegra Cole Models Portfolio together first, and then you just might get book by a major advertizing company or brand or whatever.



PHOTOSHOOT ONE:
The first thing a company sees when they look at your portfolio, is your face! duh. So your first picture will needs to be another faceshot from the torso or shoulders up. Its needs to be fierce and should make companies say "I want to book that models" Because that is what Alegra Cole Models do, we help YOU get booked!!

Criteria:
-at this point the judges want to see how you have control over everything because you are doing your own make-up, hair, and picking your clothes. We cannot tell you, how to represent you! But it might affect how you get booked
-you can even decide if you want this this picture in black and white or not.
-BUT, this has to be atleast from torso or shoulders up with a creative pose and fierce expression.
-lets keep the background with plain neutral colors.
Examples:

http://img63.imageshack.us/img63/3504/teddyfacecopyro4.jpghttp://img523.imageshack.us/img523/7761/000000093852jessicaperekb9.jpg
http://img523.imageshack.us/img523/1513/necksh8.jpghttp://img63.imageshack.us/img63/8409/000000095176sifagustsdoif9.jpg







PHOTOSHOOT TWO:
When companies see your body, do they say "Ummm...looks like we will be sticking with big winter coats, slimfast, and treadmills for her/him"? Or do they say, "Wow that model knows how to wear that dress/suit!"? In this shoot you will be posing either full body or half-body (your choice agian) sporting an amazing and creative pose! However you need to be wearing black (as it complement the curves while hiding the faults)

Criteria:
-you can pick your hairstyle etc. Choose wisely.
-Where a black classy outfit
-It can either be a full body shot or torso. Choose wisely
-This should be a colorshot (because you are wearing black,) use a dark background (plain)
:new:-You can use props (this came up in a PM)
Examples:
http://img63.imageshack.us/img63/5494/roundoneexamplecopyhk8.jpg
http://img523.imageshack.us/img523/6808/teddyposecopysv2.jpghttp://img63.imageshack.us/img63/8267/vanessadeassisfullsizedl2.jpg

Finally,

CONFESS IT TO ALEGRA:
:new: you can have a picture if you want:new:
1.Name something/someone who you would love to model for
2. Name someone/something that you would hate to model for
3. You made the cut, how does that feel?

Questions PM ME. And make sure to put Model's Name and Episode One in the title bar.

Hey all :) I don't know any results either so it will be a surprise for me too lol

We weren't asked to comment this round, just to provide scores, but if anyone would like a comment after the final 8 are announced, feel free to pm me.

Best of luck everyone; I thought all the apps were terrific. I'm sure arriving at the final 8 out of 20 makes it a very tough application round.

beeskibran, I really like how you're handling eliminations for this contest. It makes things exciting for us lurkers and even when I'm participating in contests I have my favorites who I can't wait to see make it or not. :D Almost makes me regret not entering, lol. Can't wait to see that group picture! ;)

beeskibran_SC
11th Jul 2007, 3:58 PM
i dont get any PM...maybe i was eliminated,, a bit confusing lalalala

Actually haroz,i will tell you this, you were one of the high scores with the judges, but i waited atleast an hour and a half for you to clear you PM Box and you never did, :( And i literally posted "Clear PM BOxes" hundred times
And I stated early the Alegra Cole doesn't leave messages. Sorry.

@Zora: I am glad that somebody else will be surprised besides me! :lol:

And just remember if you didnt make the Final 8, it doesn't mean that you "suck" we literally had ALOT of ties and all the scores were in close range. This was really hard...and its my first contest. And i just want things to be organized and PERFECT :lol: And everybody had great entries!

To the models:
"you make your career, not us(Alegra Cole Models)"

ABOUT COMMENTS:

There will definitely be comments (Critiques, to be spectic) after each episode. However, (and here comes another surprise, well not really it is stated in the first post ;), the 2 lowesest scores will get a PM saying that they are eliminated, and their photo in the group picture will be gone. That way it will kinda of be a surprise to see who's gone and who's still here.

I just want to say that the judging for apps was hard, there was alot of talented, beautiful models. Good luck to those moving on (no, I do not know who they are :)) and those that did not make it to round 1, do not take it as you did something wrong, or were not good enough...the competition was fierce and the number moving on was small which makes cuts so hard.

I would say that the selection of the 8 has pretty much been made and known to those that made it, seeing they are working on photos for the group shot. Have patience and all will be revealed..lol...I am trying also, to be patience and I am a judge...lol.

1.Name something/someone who you would love to model for.

I would love to do an ad campaign for the ILPH (International League for the Protection of Horses). They do alot of good work overseas educating people on how to take care of their horses and donkeys, with the long-term goal of alleviating equine suffering through education.

2. Name someone/something that you would hate to model for.

I would hate to model for Agent Provocateur. Strutting the catwalk in scanty undies is not my idea of fun!

3. You made the cut, how does that feel?

It feels great! I feel sorry for those who didn't make the cut, it was a very hard application round, but not sorry enough to give up my place!

1.Name something/someone who you would love to model for:

Prada. The style of Prada's advertisements are incredible and right up my alley. Boho Chic, sensual, provocative and fierce; Thats what Prada represents to me.

2. Name someone/something that you would hate to model for:

Any type of adult themed magazine ie. Playboy. Just not my style.

3. You made the cut, how does that feel?

It feels incredible to have made the cut, the competition was tough and still is. I feel motivated, challenged and ready to show off my skills and my desire to reign victorious in the end.

A couple of questions:

1) For the body shot, does the clothing have to be all black, or just predominantly black?
(Example: a black suit with a white/colored shirt.)

2) Can we use any accessories for either photo?

Dolce and Gabbana. Theirs are some of the most creative (and sexy) ads around.

Walmart! Not only does it destroy local businesses, it discriminates against its female employees, breaks fair-labor laws, and uses taxpayer dollars to subsidize its growth.

3. You made the cut, how does that feel? - Surviving the application round made me feel like I could breathe a few more days! However, that rest only lasts a moment, then it's time to get to work again.

EPISDODE TWO: Sultry Six
I will be photoshopping this one for you guys!

(sorry for this looking so boring, :anime:)

With two models going home, and six left, this competition is getting tough. However, Top Model Magazine (http://www.hardcoredior.net/topmodel/Index.html) has decided to feature the Final Six of 8th and Ocean Season One. And seeing that two more models will be leaving us at the end of thei episode, it may be the last chance that you have to show your face in such an acredited magazine... and, this also will be the last time that you all will have the same assignment, because Companies are literally waiting in line to book you! So Bring It!


Photoshoot One:

First of all you will be wearing smokey eyeshadows (and yes you too guys!). Secondly, you will be bald... so bring out those "bald skin caps". Finally...you'll be nude ....yes nude! And people, please be classy, yet sexy. This will be a full bodyshot wear you can either stand or sit behind a black or transparent background.

Draw Inspiration From Here, (as this is what the your "spread" will be similar too):

http://img295.imageshack.us/img295/2627/catalinfinishedgl5.jpg


REQUIREMENTS:

-must be nude, but cover up
-must be bald
-wear smokey eye makeup (Everyone)
-use black or transparent background
-finally pics must be altleast 500 x 725 pixels because that is about the standard size for the magazine. But Please put a link to the larger version when you post because we dont need to get introuble from the mods! ;)


Photoshoot Two:

THis will be 3 photos, but really the same pose. You are to do a new pose this time with casual clothing and a very modest hairstyle and make-up choice. You can either be stainding or lying down.

More specifics:
This pic will be of a completely new pose, but each of the three pics will consist of the a different body part:

(dont laugh at my drawing)

I think my example is better :lol:

Finally,

I need a short bio (agian, sorry) of you, but in THIRD PERSON (ex. "Alegra Cole is the founder of A.C.M ...etc" that is third person right? lol. I would suggest that you exagerate ;)


REQUIREMENTS:

-:new: 1 photo of the pose, lie down or stand-up ( I will photoshop the end result)
-Wear casual clothing, simple makeup and hairstyle.
-White or Transparent background.
-finally pics must be altleast 500 x 725 pixels because that is about the standard size for the magazine. But Please put a link to the larger version when you post because we dont need to get introuble from the mods! ;)

My scores and comments are in for "“creative aspects” of the photo, including (but not limited to): outfit choice, poses, facial expressions, props, etc."

Some of you did a great job, others a so-so job....I will say right now I was not impressed at all by this round and that is fine, it is the first round and everyone is getting their feet underneath them...I will be expecting better from all of you in the next rounds...not because I am being mean but, because I know you all have the ability otherwise, you would not be the top 8 selected for this contest.

Honesty is definitely the best policy, how else will we know what to improve on?

This next round looks more difficult though, nude poses are a little harder for me so if I make it, I'm going to have to really step it up a little.
Good luck to you all!

16th Jul 2007, 3:48 PM
Well said jaela, and maybe it is partially my fault. If I was just an on-looker, i would say that episode one kind of reminded me of an application round :anime:

It's my first contest, But I am still learning and trying to come up with unique and creative rounds/ideas :D And everyone one who is here, deserves to be here!

Cinamun
16th Jul 2007, 3:51 PM
Well episode two definitely sounds unique and creative, i've never seen a contest where one of the tasks was to create a full body shot using three seperate pics, loved your illustration by the way :rofl: So yeah, Episode two is definitely one of the more creative ones i've seen.

beeskibran_SC
16th Jul 2007, 3:53 PM

beeskibran - You are doing a great job sweetie, last round was great, nothing wrong with it :). Task 2 I agree is very creative and I can not wait to see the entries for this upcoming round. Not every round has to be unique or never done before, some of the challenge of doing things that have been done before or once again is for us to take that opportunity and step outside the box and think about another way of doing it so, it has a fresh look....it is a hard and very scarey thing to do, I know because I do the same thing many times and play it safe. I have seen ppl criticized for taking a chance when in my eyes they should have been praised for it.

Good luck models on this round and I know that each of you are just the best!!!

Tyler_SC
16th Jul 2007, 5:10 PM
My scores and paragra..err, comments are in. My comments are also from a creative point of view, I critiqued everyone thoroughly and gave everyone but one person helpful tips...simply because this person is doing an outstanding job. I'm sorry if anyone is hurt by my comments, but as you've said, honesty is the best.

jaela, tyler, destin: I appreciate your honesty, because your feedback will only help me to improve my efforts. :)

h3nker, I hadn't ever considered that there was an alternative lol :)

I focused on both strengths and areas for improvement in the areas I was instructed to concentrate on. I want everyone to do really well and produce the quality of work that I know you are all capable of, that's all. :beer: You are the top 8 out of 20, I know you can all bring it.

redwing, I didn't know you had an injury...glad you seem to be on the mend :)

beeskibran, I actually thought that, as a round one, it was a tough challenge to stand out with just a headshot and a bodyshot, and not doing an advertisement, for example. I saw so many more details that I would not usually notice or comment on with a more complex task, and I also like how you have judges to concentrate on specific things. It will be very interesting to see how it all comes together!

cheers all :)

16th Jul 2007, 6:44 PM
Also, when you see the comments I can't stress enough that I will help you if you want help!

jaela_SC
16th Jul 2007, 6:56 PM
oh goodness, I look at all the replies after my remarks and I hope that this is a good thing, if not let me start apologizing now. I promise my comments talk about the strengths of your pics and the areas that I feel could use improvement...and remember this is only my opinion :). If my remarks cause problems then I am sorry, very sorry!! If, on the other hand my remarks just brought forth that all of us judges will be honest, fair and give you all the help we can to move you further along in the contest then that makes me happy.

Now, I think I will stay quiet until it is time to judge ;).

Cinamun
16th Jul 2007, 7:04 PM
I dont know about everyone else, but now i'm REALLY anxious to see the comments :rofl:

16th Jul 2007, 7:04 PM
I'm sure all the judges comments will be fine :) Personally I like being told what's wrong with my pictures. Usually I'll try to fix them (yup, even after they're judged :lol:) I think it helps me become better at picture taking and whatnot...

Cin: I know how you feel I'm antsy... I started on Episode 2 already so I hope I made it :lol:

16th Jul 2007, 8:57 PM

katie.miller
I thought that your task 1 pic was very good, there was a fierceness in your eyes. The choice of hair was good with the outfit you chose, sometimes long hair with a turtleneck sweather fight against each other, so the short hair was a good choice this time. I thought the concept that you but, across in the task 2 pic was great, all through I would have liked to see just a bit more of her face (small detail no points taken off). The outfit and pose were perfect for the task. A small detail for me a little lighter background would have made the shot even better, enabling us to see her beautiful body more. A great job, you did not disappoint me in what I felt you could give. Now, give me more of this and plus.

annie.lennon
A good job. You achieve that fierce look in the eyes in task 1, the pose was good but, kind of standard nothing unexpected. My suggestion when using poses that are sort of standard, that is fine but, you need to make them yours by either using special lighting or something different from the others. Your task 2 is a good example, the pose is perfect but, the lighting in this shot is what makes it stand out...giving it a mood/atmosphere. If you had looked up a little bit towards the camera, would have made this pic for task 2 stunning. It is a small detail, and did not affect my scoring. I know that you have the ability to give more creative poses and expressions like these and I will be expecting to see them in the next rounds.

astrid.montgomery
I was impressed with the chances you took in poses, they were creative, they showcased you beautifully...you were very right to take the chance it worked for you and I hope to see you taking more chances as the contest progresses. Your expressions worked well, they were fierce, directed to the camera, letting us know there emotion/thoughts behind them. One small detail (no lost of points on this) in your Task 1 pic...not sure if it is just me but, the hands were off, I think if there had been a thumb or a glimpse of a thumb tip (especially on the hand next to the face) it would have felt more realistic to me. The outfits for each pic were a good choice...dramatic and classic which fit well with your poses and expressions.

jake.garrison
You have a sweet, boyish, natural look so you need to be very choosey when it comes to expressions and hairstyles to be able to get that fierce/sexy look. Task 1 asked for a fierce look and I feel that you missed getting that. Jake is gorgeous but, with that hairstyle and expression; what comes to my mind is a renaissance male...someone I would love to see wearing shirts with ruffles, english riding habit etc. I saw the same expression in your apps pics and was looking for more this round. I think that the stubble was a good addition to giving him a more rugged look. All through task 2 did say that props could be used, in this case, I felt it distracted from Jake...if his pose had be more dramatic/creative then I think he could have carried off having objects in the background. With the pose he is doing, my eyes goes instead to objects because they are more interesting/intriguing. I liked the emotion and energy you put in the confessional wished I had see that in the photoshoots.

laci.vessario
Is this the same girl I saw during applications? That girl had "IT"...there were creative poses and expressions which I did not see this round. I did liked your expression in task 1 it was fierce and sulty. I really wished you had either done the whole pic in black/white or had done some kind of special lighting....she is just tooooo yellow looking against the dark background...she has gold hair, gold jewerly and her skin has a golden glow...so instead of me saying, wow, what a beautiful model, I am saying instead...ohhhhh too much gold. Task 2 pic is good. With the outfit you chose it should have emphasized her gorgeous body with all it's curves...the pose, with the hands just hanging there really did not utilize the outfit...a hand on the hip would have brought the eye to the outfit/body and said "look at me, I have a gorgeous body and with these curves I had wear anything". I expect to see that model from apps to be back in full force in the next rounds.

de'veryiontae.wyatts
Here is another model that I expected to see more creativity from, after looking at her application. Your pics are good, the expressions fierce and beautiful...get rid of the purple lipstick through. You have it all there the hairstyle in task 1 is perfect for the expression you had. Your pose in task 2 was great bringing the eye to your beautiful, curvy body. There is nothing wrong with these and we have seen lots and lots of models perform them. But, to succeed a model needs to stand-out from all the others. For this shoot maybe some dramatic lighting would have done just that. I will be looking forward to more creativity from you in the next rounds.

bruno.fairchild
You were not one of my favorites during applications but, I have to say that you have made me sit up and notice you this time. With that said there is plenty of room for improvement. Your pose in task 2 was creative and help emphasize your outfit. What I need to see from you is more diversity in your expressions and hairstyles. In this round you had the same expression and hairstyle in all the pics. To be a successful model you need to be versatile. I will be looking in the upcoming rounds for more diversity from you.

noel.york
The task asked for a fierce look and when I look at your head shot in apps, I said "that is a beautiful fierce look" so, my question to you is where is it for this task? It is a nice expression, I could have even loved it; if your hand had been up in your hair, or against your neck (like in one of the examples), the hand in front of your face just made the expression seem more docile for me. I thought your pose in task 2 was creative and kudos for taking a chance with it. The background is terrible it was distracting and took the focus off you...sometimes less is better. Your app. pics gave me high expectations in your ability to be creative and fierce and I will be looking for that from you in the next rounds.

PARKER WOLF"When I became tired of modeling, I bought my first real camera and fell in love with being behind the scenes. After a decade of paying my dues in the industry, I’ve become the photographer every model wants and every corporation needs. My love of art and my ongoing education in many fields of design give me a sharp eye for composition and detail, and a knack for knowing both the more obvious and the more subtle details that make a photograph sell a product. As a judge for this contest, I’ll be looking for more than the usual “bored model face.” Show me how you can sell a product through body language and expression. Respect the unspoken language of color and contrast. Have your model exist with meaning within the frame. In other words, bring it on! You want to really compete? Make it happen and show us your best."


katie.miller
The head shot shows Katie in a very honest and direct light, despite her slightly distracted gaze. It’s an intriguing combination. Excellent clarity, depth and detail. The composition of the second shot is a great use of negative space, I only have a slight issue with your crop. You’ve lost some clarity here, but I’m thinking the softness was intentional, and it works well with the mood of the photo. Although we barely see your model’s face, you’ve lit it so well that we still get a sense of her expression, attitude and personality. We most especially see Katie’s versatility here because of the more glamorous and sophisticated mood you’ve presented. Very well done, Zerdz.

annie.lennon
Annie’s head shot is full of attitude, and your lighting decisions add some mystery. You’ve achieved a beautiful glow on her skin without losing detail; the transitions from shadows to highlights on her skin are strong and you’ve done it very skillfully. You’ve done well preserving detail of your darkest tones in the body shot, but have lost a little detail otherwise; her legs are a little harshly lit. The shadows on her face and shoulder are beautiful. More attention to a cleaner edge when presenting a photo like this would serve you very well in future rounds, because some of the uneven edges are distracting. I’d would have liked to have seen more of that attitude in the mood of the body shot. Great work overall, romyhorse.


astrid.montgomery
The mood of the head shot is very haute-couture and confident, great contrast of mood with the seedy background. The composition is dynamic; despite her neutral expression, you’ve given the photo attitude and drama with the angle and placement of her arms and hands. The hot-spots on her face work well. I’d suggest in the future that you have a little more relationship between background and model; in this case, some darker-value shadows on your model would have made this a more dramatic shot, as we would have had the feeling your model was truly in this dark alley. For the same reason, a color head shot on a black and white ground is not the most effective decision to make; let’s see your model really exist within the space. The body shot is very chic and has a vintage flavor, in which case I can somewhat appreciate your lighting decisions. However, there is a flatness to the overall photo that tends to reduce your model to mid-ground instead of the more dramatic focus she deserves. Wonderful job overall with both photos, Cinamun.

jake.garrison
Jake’s head shot is very well-done. The lighting comes from an obvious direction and the effect of highlights/shadows on his face enhances his somewhat melancholy expression. Combined with the slight angle of his shoulders, this give depth and movement, which is often hard to achieve on a plain background, especially with a head shot. The body shot is extremely effective for much the same reason; Jake looks terrific here. Great clarity and detail in both shots. The 3 objects you’ve chosen to place behind Jake create even more movement within the shot, it’s very well-composed, as you’ve place an angular line in the mid-ground. At first view, I questioned your choice of the globe because the pop of color seemed out of place, and it’s not a “emotionally neutral” object like a column or a plant. Viewing it again gave me an appreciation for your very subtle use of primary colors in the hottest values of your set decorations; we actually see another geometric level, in this case a triangle that enhances Jake’s position in the frame. Excellent entry, redwing, both photos are terrific.

laci.vessario
From Laci’s headshot, I can see she is an uber-confident golden girl with experience and a bit of an attitude. Laci glows here, and I especially like the crispness of the highlights on her lips and hair. This is a high-fashion head shot at it’s best; this model can sell a product. The clarity and slightly off center gaze are excellent. The mood of the body shot doesn’t have the same emotional impact or sense of your model’s “in-your-face” energy. The sheen on Laci’s face and chest would have been beautiful on her limbs as well. Laci is shown at her best with that dramatic golden impact you achieved in the head shot. Lovely work, pors.


de'veryiontae.wyatt
Dee’s head shot has some interesting lighting. The way the highlights in her hair separate her from the background works very well here. You did well allowing your mid-tones to create some more subtle planes in the photo so her lips and eyes to really pop and add something very exotic to her personality. I particularly like how her collarbone is lit, the sense of anatomy is fantastic. In the second photo, the lighting on Dee’s skin is effective, but the hot spot on her dress is distracting, and there is little movement to the composition. Slightly more separation from the background from the hips down and more crispness would have served this photo well. I also don’t get the same sense of intense mood that I did from the head shot. Very nice entry, waynesim.

bruno.fairchild
Bruno’s head shot is intriguing. He is both very detached and very involved. The angle and the overall softness of the lighting enhances the mysterious mood of him emerging from the shadows. The topmost adjustment layer flattened some highlights in his hair which could have created some movement towards the intensity of his eyes. Bruno’s body shot is well-composed with a truly skillful use of line and angle. The reflection is effective and adds dimension and perspective; Bruno really exists in this space. The overall mood here is again both detached and mysterious; these 2 shots combined set the mood for your model’s personality and style, which is very unique because it’s both shy and dangerous. For future rounds, be a little more mindful that Bruno’s skin doesn’t get too lost the mid-tones. Great entry, h3nker.

noel.york
Noel’s head shot is youthful and direct. The composition is a bit too linear, and the lighting, while effective for your model’s youth, could use a little more tweaking to create more depth of field. The pop of her eyes and lips is very nice. The body shot is a fun composition, but in the end has a flatness that could have been rectified with a true sense of a light source. Your sense of geometry and form are very well done however. The pop-art graphic mood is unusual and fresh-looking, which is really appropriate for the personality of your model. Very nice photos, kiki

astrid.montgomery
in photoshoot 2 your makeup is too much, the white powder has got to go.

Jake Garrison

Laci Vessario
you know how to work your hair and makeup i have no complaints.

De'veryiontae "Dee" Wyatts
your hair i cant see in the first photo. (try a lighter background color)

Bruno Fairchild
your hair blends to much with your skintone. you should try a darker color.

TERRYCOLBALT (info to come I am soo slow)


katie.miller -
-- You're a gorgeous model. Your facial features are absolutely striking, your eyes are absolutely gorgeous. The hair cut makes you look fierce, you definitely are impressing me. While I think that you're amazing, which you are, there are some things with your shots that are falling behind. Mainly the lighting and focus. You're shots are always a bit "gray" which can also translate as dull - try to use a lot more color. Try to have sharper images, less blur, and I think you should aim on brighter pictures to really stand out from the rest. You are definitely a contender to win this.

annie.lennon -
-- A gorgeous girl, like many. I don't know if you have what it takes to be a full out fashion model. You're eyes resemble an Asian woman's and I think you should embrace the possibility of putting more emphasis on your features. You're hair and make-up choices were not impressing me, they are more casual than high fashion. You're sitting on a mountain of potential but you aren't really taking advantage of it, yet. Work on your poses, make sure you have eye contact with the camera. Be fierce. You have what it takes if you can figure out how to make it work.

astrid.montgomery -
-- You're poses are probably one of the best in the competition. However, I don't think you're look is right for modeling. I think we need to focus on making your lips smaller, downplay your nose, and maybe lighten the hair to a light brown. You're images are all black and white, and at this point you really need to start bringing in some color, make your images pop. You're a contender for winning this. Also, on your second bodyshot your left leg is quite bizarre and your face could be more fierce...just thought I'd point out. You're really a great model.

jake.garrison -
-- I don't know if you have what it takes to become a model. You're pictures are sorta bland and they need more color, try to bring out the eyes more. You've also been shooting with longer hair, I strongly suggest you go back to a buzz cut as it really brought out your facial features. You're poses aren't the best, I think you should go for something more high-fashion...something more unique. Your sets are a bit bizarre and have no direction as well, I think this is something to work on. Try to make your pictures lighter, more colorful, and get rid of that long hair!

laci.vessario -
-- I love you. You're one of the most gorgeous girls I've ever saw - those beautiful eyes just POP! You have a very classy look and it really brings me to love you. I love how you resemble Marilyn Monroe and Anna Nicole Smith, both gorgeous women. You have a huge amount of potential, several things are holding you back. First of all, don't blur your images as much. You're really killing the quality of the images. Another thing I see is that you love red lipstick...now, there is nothing wrong it..especially on you...but for more high fashion shots let's downplay the lips and really emphasize the rest of your face, mainly your eyes. Try to had more colorful sets and more elegant lighting, you're poses are fine at this point. On the first shot I think you're eyes should have less makeup and be more natural...one last thing, try to always stay with the same shade of blonde in your hair!

de'veryiontae.wyatts -
-- You have a lot of potential, gorgeous features, but you're makeup is making you look like a clown opposed to a model. Less makeup and try to look more natural. I think you need more light in your images, try to lighten your images. You also would be gorgeous with a close shave bald cut, I'd be interested to know how you look on a high fashion shoot with no hair. I think it'd really set you apart for the better. Oh, you also seem to struggle with pulling off bodyshots...try to have the face looking more fierce and the body more high fashion.

bruno.fairchild -
-- Perfection. You are a model. You're striking features, gorgeous lighting, flawless posing...what can I say other then you're probably the top contender in this competition. I will also add that you're creativity is something the others should look for, you are very impressive. The short hair looks worlds better on you, it makes you more manly opposed to girly.

noel.york -
-- Let's start with the good, gorgeous eyes, nice face shot. It's sophisticated without being too much. If you do stay, consider lightening your hair...I'm interested to see how red hair would make your skin and eyes pop. Now, you're posing...is awful. You're distorted. It's colorful...but that doesn't take away from how awful this pose is. You look freakishly thin, you aren't on the ground...your arms look like an alien...Your choice of hair and outfit didn't really fit either, I would like to have seen a more elegant, pulled back hairstyle with something that looks so professional, the outfit, of course. SimPose works for some, but it's not working for you. Stick to the ingame poses and you might have a chance at winning - the poses you're pulling now COULD be amazing...but you're executing poorly.

at.everyone - see below.
-- Many of you need help with lighting and color, again, I'll emphasize my signature. I will help anyone who asks.

Wow. Just wow. :blink:
Thank you so much, judges, for the detailed comments. I have never gotten such a specific critique before, and I love it; there's a lot of information here to work with.

I really appreciate the time it must have taken all of you to go through the entries and give such well-thought-out suggestions.
Bravi! :clap:

****
beeskibran, I have a couple of questions about Episode 2:

1) for the nude shot, should we artfully pose the sim so that any offending body parts are covered, or may we use a drape of some kind?

2) for the three-photo shot, should the final composite photo be a full-length bodyshot, or 3/4 length?

Thanks! :)

Many thanks for the thorough critiques, Judges. They are very helpful...specifically and in general.

But in at least one instance problematic, such as these comments:

"Viewing (picture 2) again gave me an appreciation for your very subtle use of primary colors in the hottest values of your set decorations; we actually see another geometric level, in this case a triangle that enhances Jake’s position in the frame."

"(Although) task 2 did say that props could be used, in this case, I felt it distracted from Jake...if his pose had be more dramatic/creative then I think he could have carried off having objects in the background. With the pose he is doing, my eyes goes instead to objects because they are more interesting/intriguing."


Different strokes for different folks, but what's a poor novice model to do? :)

Cinamun
17th Jul 2007, 1:13 PM

And Kiki, I love those pics! Good job!

beeski, the nude shot can be on a plain Black background right?

redwing I'm sorry if you and others may have some contrary input on a few issues, but this way of judging is really very clever and useful for you all. This message goes out to all the contestants.

When you break it down, we're all just asking you to be at your best, no matter what details may seem contrary. Conflicting opinions actually help you all out. You can see where you've made a great impression in one area, and where you haven't in another. That's really valuable for your focus for the next task, because both positive input and suggestions to improve for the next round can be combined very effectively...and to your great advantage. :)

I've rarely seen such detailed comments in a contest, I actually can't wait to see this next round bring it to another level.

cheers all :D

It was fun having you wayne!
@kiki: I know that i will ;)

And WELL SAID destin!! :clap:

EDIT:

@h3nker: The task 2 should be a full bodyshot, iforgot to mention that :anime: And I would prefer if task one was completely nude( but use bodyparts ,like hands, to cover up the private parts)

@cin: the nude shot can be on a black background! But I would prefer that task two be transparent, if you (not you cin, but eveyone) dont know how to do that, it could be a white background

Everyone: I changed something for Task 2, you no longer need to submit three pics of the same pose. Just 1 pic, and i will divide it into the 3 bodypart sections

Astrid Montgomery is the only child of Davis and Rochelle Montgomery. She was born and raised in a small town of about 500 people. Astrid began modeling at the age of 7, parading around the house in her mother's vintage dresses. Astrid has kept this vintage style throughout her teen and adult years and leans more toward the Boho Chic look. Astrid graduated at the top of her class in design last Spring. She is motivated, dedicated and has a unique look that is almost guaranteed to take her far in the fashion world.
At the tender age of 22 years, Astrid Montgomery is making her way into the world of high fashion and design, she's headed toward success and she welcomes it with open arms.

Finally just had a chance to get on and see the results. All I can say is hats off to the judges for such detailed comments. I know it takes time and commitment to do such a thorough job. I agree with the comments for Laci - sometimes the inspiration just isn't there and I struggled with it this round. But thank you for letting her go through to the next round.

redwing - I understand the feeling you are having with conflicting comments and sorry, about that...I think SimsArtThat put it wonderfully and perfectly. My added comments is in the end you have to be you, pick the comments that will help you become better in what YOU want to achieve and run with it. I have found in my experience you are never going to please everyone 100% and there is nothing wrong with that. In the end what is important is that you do what brings you pleasure and expresses you as a person...because in the end YOU are the one that matters. Lol....all that and these are the only words needed.....be true to yourself.

romyhorse I love how you've started to embrace her features! That style of eyeliner, in the first image, really brings out her eyes! However, I see a little spot of her arm going into her leg you may want to touch up!

Cina, instead of redoing the pic just use the pinch feature of Photoshop's "Liquify"

Cinamun
18th Jul 2007, 12:53 AM
LOL i'm glad too Destin! Astrid looks like she's about to slap someone! :lol:

*edit*
Hey Tyler, thank you, I hadnt thought of that, Liquify and I arent the greatest of friends, but I have time to tweak so we'll see what I can come up with.

Would that I also had Photoshop and things such as "Liquefy." Something tells me I'm at a big disadvantage having only Paint.Net to use.

Who wants to make me a present of Photoshop?

redwing, I've see fantastic photos just taken in-game...there is no disadvantage at all :)

I've seen some too, SAT. But here's betting that photoshopped poses will be expected, especially by Tyler and Jaela.

romyhorse and Cinamun - great pics for this round, both of you on top of things and the selection of expressions and poses excellent.

This is wonderful, I am learning things too...thank you Tyler about the "liquify". I have photoshop but, do not know that much about some of the special features. I will have to play around with the feature liquify. Thanks again, I love learning new things to do to improve my pics.

redwing - I will always take a pic that does not have the razzle dazzle of photoshopping but, is extremely creative over a expert photoshop pic that is dull and boring.....with me creativity will always win out.

If you had a damn clue as to what you were rambling on about you'd know that I prefer ingame poses. I told Cina something to do in Photoshop because I know she uses/used it on previous pictures. Besides, I'm a photo editor, I know the tips and tricks to improve images. Don't think because I Photoshop SOME poses that I'm biased to them - I'm not.

When I'm judging, I don't look for Photoshopped poses, SimPosed poses, or ingame poses - I look for sheer quality and creativity. If you don't like our opinions as judges, I'm sorry. Take it for what it is and keep trying to change our opinions.

Of all the things to be biased of, what you make your poses with is NOT something. Bottom line, I'll judge you on your pictures and the make-up of your pictures.
