mumo, thanks. She's my fave at the moment :)

15th Jan 2008, 10:22 AM
Hey, I'm am so entering this contest, but I have a question. I'm currently in another contest; should I win it (which I'm seriously doubting) after I've applied, do I have to withdraw myself from the competition?

15th Jan 2008, 11:57 AM
Question, what exaclty do you mean by 3/4 bodyshot? And is it okay for me to enter someone who used to be entered in a contest already?

15th Jan 2008, 12:49 PM
Um, I really want to enter but I'm going to be away from the 18th until the 25th... Can we organise something so that I can still apply?

Cassie :)

15th Jan 2008, 1:01 PM
Bexstar - You would most likely have to drop out as this is for those who don't have one....You can still enter, and we will find out how you fair in the other contest. Look forward to your app. :)

silenthill - for a 3/4 I mean it doesn't have to be a complete full body shot. I don't mind from the knees down not showing.

Cassieandra - If you can submit a application before the 18th, not a problem...Just let me know.

15th Jan 2008, 2:45 PM
ooh i so wanted to enter this but then i got a star :P could i please judge

15th Jan 2008, 2:47 PM
Most certainly Honey...Thanks.

Do you have a limited number of contestants joining? Say that if 15 people have joined by this Monday coming up, will more be allowed to join? (I ask because my RL is pretty stressful until Sunday night and I would like to be able to take part, I just don't want to enter and then pull out because of being unable to commit :) )

May I ask something? I'm confused with Glamour thing, does it mean heavy make up, or draw something on the face? O.o
If what I did wrong can I change it?

17th Jan 2008, 1:32 AM
I think it means like high fashion or a more artsy look with color and drama, more so than everyday lipgloss and mascara. I think your sims eyes look pretty cool in your glamour shot and Im not too certain on the rules but it looks fine. Ooh, we used the same hair :)

17th Jan 2008, 5:12 AM
Yay! 2 more entries. :)

17th Jan 2008, 5:14 AM
Gorgeous sims Luv and Tlaw....Really Beautiful .. Adding you both to the list.

Luv - Exactly what Tlaw said with the Glamor shot.

Thanks Tlaw for answering Luv's question...:D

17th Jan 2008, 6:57 AM
No problem!

17th Jan 2008, 7:22 AM
This looks fun. I've never done this sort of thing before, but I'll get out the old custom content and give it a shot!

To the batcave!

No, wait. To the body shop!

17th Jan 2008, 11:30 AM
ah I see! thanks TLAWBLIQUE360 lol yeah I see that both of us using the same hair hehe XD

mumof5ferals I'm glad you liked my pretty sim :D and yes I understand now what does Glamour mean ^_^

17th Jan 2008, 11:30 AM
Nice apps! Love the pics Tlaw & Luv!

17th Jan 2008, 11:32 AM
I had this male sim, Chester Smitt, who generated from Nanamouskoury's selfsim - every time I played his household, I use to always swoon at him. Until I exported him into bodyshop so I could upload him at SFV, and I noticed that he looked rather girly, not as hot as I thought he was, so I turned him into a girl, and Shana Artiste - the head of my Starving Artist challenge - was born. Creepy story eh? :lol:

17th Jan 2008, 11:47 AM
Lol really? I'm almost tempted to ask his name... I'm from Taupo myself, I know I can be so original when I enter my sims in contests :lol:

17th Jan 2008, 3:07 PM
Charlotte - Shana is stunning. And I do agree that the story behind her existence is pretty creepy...lol. Welcome and thank you for joining MSB.

Cassieandra - sorry you couldn't join, but watch out for the next Starless contest that is in the making...:)

17th Jan 2008, 10:33 PM
New Zealand! Thats so awesome, I've wanted to visit there ever since I saw this true life thingy on mtv and then there was flight of the conchords... Brett and Germaine and those accents.. LoL. But seriously, Luv New Zealand and -ers.
Oh and on topic... Yea! Enough entries! Gorgeous girls... Sonar's shivering in her boots!
Oh and yesterday the host said apps would close in 5 days so I think you've got time.

17th Jan 2008, 11:54 PM
Tlaw, that's so funny, my husband was born in Rotorua, NZ and we're both huge fans of Flight of the Conchords! We definitely want to go back there someday :)

Yeah I know what you mean about all these gorgeous entries... my Kioko will really have to stage it up if she's gonna do well! As well as everyone else :)

18th Jan 2008, 12:04 AM
.. Apps close in 3 days and my game is still kaput. :(

How sad. I would have loved to enter! What's the next Starless? I thought Cycle 3 was the end... Hmm.... :)

Haha, i live in New Zealand too. :D
Cambridge, Waikato. Tiny town! :)

18th Jan 2008, 12:09 AM
Tlaw, that's so funny, my husband was born in Rotorua, NZ

Hey no shit? That's like a quick drive from Taupo. Stinky place that but has some awesome motels **giggles nervously** Lol @ the accents thing, I can't believe people actually like our lazy way of talking :laugh:
Janne - I'm in Whangarei :D

Oh, and HOOOZAH on the 10 contestants - this is looking to be a very popular contest, I'm getting really nervous looking at the other contestants :bow:

Irvine - Rosalie is stunning, she has beautiful eyes. Welcome to MSB and thank you for joining.

With Tradition I will post the Info when the App round Closes....Cant help myself like that...But I will tell you all the themes, as there will be 2 tasks:

1. Billboard Standouts

2. Sexy on the beach

18th Jan 2008, 1:31 AM
I've just tried my game again and it won't work.

1. I put the CD in.
2. Nothing happens. (Normally it goes auto.)
3. I clicky on the shortcut.
4. The starting white thingy with Sims 2 Seasons comes up.
5. I wait a bit.
6. Nothing happens. :(

EDIT: It comes up with an error message about Memory and something or other. But the bit before is in Korean so i can't post here as i don't really know what it means.

And i get frsutrated. I deleted the Groups as Mumo told me, but doesn't work.

18th Jan 2008, 2:00 AM
Janne - have you tried putting a thread up in tech support? Maybe they could help you :)

mumo - thanks for giving us a hint for whats coming up. I'm without a internet connection this weekend (moving houses) so I can prepare myself for the next round :D

endersgirl07 - **falls over laughing** Kia Ora to you too :bigwave:

oh im so tempted to join but im not sure how to check for Australian times since im in the west coast in california. is there some where i can check and what is the time difference? some times it comes down to the wire for me so its good to know the correct times.

18th Jan 2008, 3:59 AM
Is your time EST, Nostalgic?

EDIT: Ooh, ooh! I love New Zealand! I lived in Queenstown for a year and a half.

18th Jan 2008, 4:10 AM
You can do it on google - just search for Sydney Australia time, and then give or take a few hours. That will give you an estimate (though I'm not too sure which state mumo is in hee hee)

18th Jan 2008, 4:19 AM
Is your time EST, Nostalgic?

EDIT: Ooh, ooh! I love New Zealand! I lived in Queenstown for a year and a half.

no its pacific(-8 hours pacific standard time). it would be nice to know what specific time mumo is in , instead of guesstimating.

18th Jan 2008, 7:29 AM
Wow Hazy Iona is amazing, very beautiful indeed. Thanks for joining and Welcome to MSB.

To clarify time differences, I use +10, so right now it is 5:28pm here and it is the 18th...
I hope that does help some, as I get confused with time zones, that is why I used my time..

18th Jan 2008, 7:38 AM
Oh thank god, I'm only an hour behind you. I'm +9.

18th Jan 2008, 7:58 AM
Ok, I know it is lame, but I have done a set of pictures for the prizes, made by me....There will be more to come, when I get the time tonight.


18th Jan 2008, 8:18 AM
Im -5 so to be on the safe side I guess Im gonna just have to have mine in a day before.. right? I hope so. Oh and the pics aren't lame. I really wish I could recolor stuff my self plus my nurseries are seriously lacking in wall art.

Silent - A glamor shot is something like Tlawbliques, Dreea's and Hazy's Glamor shot, just to mention a couple.
Giselle is really beautiful...Welcome to MSB and thank you for joining. Your name has been added to the list.

18th Jan 2008, 9:33 PM
Name: Carmen Silveira
Age: 22
Location: Born in Recife, Brazil. Now lives in Roseville, Arcadia.

I realize there may be some explanation needed about "Roseville, Arcadia," so here goes: Arcadia is a tiny fictional state where all my Sims neighborhoods are situated (except for Strangetown; there's no deserts in Arcadia). It's set somewhere in the BosWash corridor, probably somewhere between NYC and Philly. It's about the size of Rhode Island and, if it existed, would probably be the most densely populated state in the country. Roseville is Arcadia's second-largest city and its state capital. It has about 750,000 people. If Carmen were to do modeling work, she would commute to Arcadia (the city, not the state), which is Arcadia (the state)'s largest city at 2 or 3 million. The two cities are only about 20 miles apart.

Okay, with that out of the way...

EDIT: I'm from the Philippines, but I dunno what's the difference between the time here and in Australia.

19th Jan 2008, 2:19 AM
Silenthill, you're an hour behind me, and I'm an hour behind mumo (because we're split into different time zones). That leaves you two hours behind.

I'm from Western Australia. =)

EDIT: When will the first round be posted?

19th Jan 2008, 2:42 AM
ok ill think ill join. i just changed some of my settings to make sure im more in tune with your time zone. ill try to get my app up soon. all i have to do is think your 6 hours behind and one day ahead. (since its 6pm here the 18th and its 12pm the 19th over there) confusing i know but i got the hang of it

19th Jan 2008, 3:09 AM
Metat - Thanks for joining, Carmen is wonderful..Welcome to MSB you have been added to the list.

Bexstar - Round one Info will be up very soon....Just getting organised.

Nostalgic - I do hope you join, it will be fun...

19th Jan 2008, 3:24 AM
Wow i really wish i could join... My game still doesn't work, and i have an idea of which Sim i'd use! I better be a lurker. :D

19th Jan 2008, 6:03 AM
Just keep trying Janne. Try to find a way to make your game work.

19th Jan 2008, 6:20 AM
I'm so excited to get started. I really wanna see how it all turns out.

BTW: silenthill_addict your character is amazing. You always make such beautiful asian girls.

BTW: silenthill_addict your character is amazing. You always make such beautiful asian girls.
The one I entered in your contest, um, was actually another look-alike of Giselle, only a teen. Arigatou for the compliment. I just love Asia, especially Japan & Korea. Seeing that there wasn't any Korean entered, I decided to enter Giselle.

EDIT: I know it's been asked many times already, but when's Round 1 starting? I can't really do stuff like this on school days

19th Jan 2008, 8:40 AM
Round one will be up in a couple of hours. So you all can get a head start...

The application round will end TOMORROW....So if you are thinking of entering....Now is your time too.

19th Jan 2008, 9:00 AM
Just to make sure, how many hours?

19th Jan 2008, 9:26 AM
Just to make sure, how many hours?

Here is the other end of the prizes, made by ME!



19th Jan 2008, 9:34 AM
Tnx Mumo!
Metatwaddle: Carmen's so pretty!

EDIT: I'm from the Philippines, but I dunno what's the difference between the time here and in Australia.Thanks! I'm just trying my hand at this contest thing for the first time... not expecting much, but I'm decent with Photoshop so maybe it'll make up for my lack of experience playing with Sims' appearances. I love playing around with Carmen's look... I really like the recolors people have been doing on MTS2 for Peggy's hair meshes! So useful.

Giselle is very pretty too! I love her porcelain skin.

19th Jan 2008, 9:36 AM
Mumo: They're just lovely! Also, the Winnie the Pooh hangings aren't lame. There's just so little stuff for the nursery, so these will help.

19th Jan 2008, 9:40 AM
Yeah, I like the Pooh hangings. :D I always loved Pooh when I was a kid. Those pictures will go in my Legacy family's baby room, for sure.

19th Jan 2008, 9:44 AM

Thanks! I'm just trying my hand at this contest thing for the first time... not expecting much, but I'm decent with Photoshop so maybe it'll make up for my lack of experience playing with Sims' appearances. I love playing around with Carmen's look... I really like the recolors people have been doing on MTS2 for Peggy's hair meshes! So useful.

Giselle is very pretty too! I love her porcelain skin.
I haven't installed Photoshop yet, but I'm still using Paint.net (which is so complicated). Tnx for the compliment on Giselle. You can get more of Peggy's hairstyles somewhere. I'll just PM it.

EDIT: Yipee! Round 1's up! But Mumo, I don't get what you mean by having the hair up. :confused:

19th Jan 2008, 9:53 AM
Yeah, a trend I've noticed is that the free programs can do almost as much as the professional-standard ones, but they're way more counterintuitive. I've got the GIMP installed on the same computer that has the Sims on it, but I can't do a thing with it! So I'm going to email my screenshots to myself and open them on my laptop, which has both Photoshop and Paint Shop Pro.

And lo, it shall be tedious as hell.

19th Jan 2008, 9:56 AM
I still need to borrow my classmate's Photoshop and fast. I've got GIMP too but I dunno what to do when using it.

19th Jan 2008, 10:00 AM
silenthill - I don't want your sims hair to be hanging down...UP, like a loose bun tight bun, pulled back in a ponytail, sort of thing....That is why I have included a picture of the loose upness I am talking about. I hope I have helped in clarifying it for you.

19th Jan 2008, 10:32 AM
Hey Mumof5ferals, is it all right if a lot of the makeup and stuff is the same as in some of the application shots? If you look at Carmen's glamour shot, it fits the criteria for the billboard task perfectly (dark eye makeup, dark red lip gloss). The actual picture won't be the same, of course, but the makeup probably will be, and the hair may even be the same too. (I've got to try out some styles from Rose before I decide.)

19th Jan 2008, 11:09 AM
That will be fine, Metat.

19th Jan 2008, 11:14 AM
EDIT: Is it okay to have pink blush?

19th Jan 2008, 2:12 PM
If you are talking about task 1, then yes, but just as long as the rest is Dark/ish. And if you are talking about task 2, then yep it is fine too.

Billboard (http://i151.photobucket.com/albums/s155/silenthill_addict/NightWind-2.jpg)

The billboard actually advertises tourism in Paris. An addition (don't mean to be a copycat) I've added is placing a video version (let's just say that since most billboards in Tokyo are in video) in Shibuya.

I'd like to thank Luvyuyu for giving me some of her tips on the softening atmoshphere of photos. And sorry for the hotlinks. My browser keeps saying this annoying message: The filesize limit for inline images is 175kb. Please reduce the size of your image.

Thank you mumof5ferels for this contest, just wonderful to see all these applications and that a contest is very much alive and kicking. They seamed to have been in a bit of a slump over the festive season. But OMG we will be judged on the applications, I can see a blinding mistake in mine. :doh
Also there are some stunning entries out there, so will not be easy.

20th Jan 2008, 2:21 PM
I know how you feel, Hazy. My application sucked. =/ But if it's not a factor to scores in future rounds, I'm not particularly worried. I would love to see the scores, however.

20th Jan 2008, 2:36 PM
Ok, I just want to say....There are no eliminations for the Application Round...And the scores that come with the apps have no bearing on the future rounds. I want to show you guys where you fit *so to speak*. If you would like I can disregard the scores and just let you wait for the Official scores at the end of round one.

If you don't want unofficial scores....please PM me...Just so there is no cluttering up this contest with spam...Mods don't like it.

I shall wait for your verdicts. :)

Heidi - Gorgeous pictures.

Hazy - Thank you for your kind words...Really sweet of you, and I am over the moon that so many people entered considering the slump we have had.
Bexstar - Your application was great, and NO it didn't suck...


Romyhorse one of our Judges has kindly donated one of her sims for a prize: Annie Lennon.


Thank you so much romy....She is divine. It is more than appreciated.

Oh my, I know exactly what you mean... I have some pretty bad messups in my app, especially the last two shots :blink: But... at least they won't count toward our future scores, that'll be nice.

20th Jan 2008, 9:32 PM
Getting some feedback straight away is cool, just came as a surprise. When I do contests waiting for the results it is the rollercoaster bit, for good or bad. So I look forward to seeing how others and myself sit at this early stage. :clap:

I'm baffled by everyone's billboards. Aren't billboards supposed to advertise something?

Billboard Standout

Sexy on the Beach

I had a lot of fun with these. I love the way my billboard came out. Elisabeth Moss is, of course, the made-up designer of the dress. The martini glass took me much longer than it should have, but it turned out OK. I like the olive, anyway.

I'm pretty happy with the colors of the beach picture, too... and Vxen's Beautiful Disaster hair is so perfect for the beach! It's all messy and beachy.

I love everyone's entries so far! It's going to be a tough competition...

21st Jan 2008, 12:53 PM
I've updated my post here (http://forums.sims2community.com/showpost.php?p=1109583&postcount=99). Apologies if the billboard is 650x499.
Metatwaddle: Lovely billboard and beach shot!

21st Jan 2008, 2:30 PM
Beautiful pictures everybody...You all have made this an extremely tough round to judge...Congratulations..

Metat...For the Billboard pictures...You pretty much "advertising" your sim...It doesn't have to be a Brand...Just your Sim to Standout...Which was the whole idea behind this task. If advertising a Brand...It takes the WoW factor out of the Sim, and that is not what I wanted to achieve. I want the Wow factor to be in each Sim. I hope you understand.

I will be posting up the UNOFFICIAL scores for the Apps shortly...It was very close from first to last....So no matter where you come, you should be happy because it was so close.

21st Jan 2008, 2:37 PM
Ooops! My billboard is on advertising tourism in Paris, but is that wrong?

21st Jan 2008, 2:44 PM
So I changed my billboard picture for nothing? Oh well, can't change it now. I left the font really small, so it doesn't stand out too much.

21st Jan 2008, 2:50 PM
Silent And Bexstar...Your Billboard pictures are just fine...As Your sim is the main focus and what you have advertised is not taking the focus of your sim...

21st Jan 2008, 3:03 PM
Tnx for assuring us mumo.

21st Jan 2008, 3:05 PM
OK, edited my billboard pic. I've just never heard of billboards that were just for pictures of people, that's all. Except for Mao Zedong.

Carmen is not Mao Zedong. She is much too pretty. :P

21st Jan 2008, 3:17 PM
Metat: lol You got that right. Kim Jung of North Korea just came into my head. What a coincidence since Giselle's from South Korea.

Amera Harash 115
i thought your entry was truly stunning and the glamour shot was amazing

Kioko Naruse 109
your headshots are truly stunning and the bkgrounds fit perfectly but i would have loved your body shot to have a little more

Ava Pemberly 101

flawless thats all i can say. Your model is so unique and gorgeus and in every picture she looks great also she has my favourite thing not being dead in the eyes!

Rajah Witter 98
your model is very pretty but i would have loved a bigger range, she is wearing the same hair and almost same makeup in the two headshots which dosn't show her versitility.

Iona Darling 115
your model is fantastic and her body shot is great amazing job

Giselle Choi 100
giselle looks great but in the body shot she looks a little like she dosn't want to be there i would have loved a stronger expression

your model is very pretty and unique i love your entry

I have no involvement in the judging of the tasks...I am just the adderupperer and Host...What the judge/s comment on is what they interpret or see. I can pm the judge and get them to pm you, so they can explain to you what they meant by the comment. Let me know if there is anything I can do..

Silent - If everyone gets there entry in before the 24th I will close the round...But this Round will close on the 24th (my time).

22nd Jan 2008, 12:43 PM

Thanks Heidi!

Edited my round 1 beach shot... changed the pose somewhat, made it so that she was no longer smiling (since she was smiling in the billboard), tried to keep Carmen's hair out of her eyes, and attempted to tone down the yellow layer on her skin. I hope it's an improvement.

22nd Jan 2008, 11:31 PM
I changed mine as well; brought Kio in closer since she's further away in the billboard shot, changed the suit, and added some nice effects :) I think it looks much better now.

On the Beach

23rd Jan 2008, 3:39 PM
wow everyone amazing pictures this is a tough contest and luvvyuyu change it back!
lol i like the first one so much better :PI don't mean to be sanctimonious here, and you can tell me to STFU if I'm wrong, but I think it's a little bit unfair to the rest of us that a judge is giving certain people advice on their pictures before scores are in.

23rd Jan 2008, 4:03 PM
sorry i delelted it
(if anyone would like me to withdraw being a judge please pm because i dont seem to be doing a good job)

23rd Jan 2008, 4:08 PM
You're doing a fine job, Honey. ^^ Don't withdraw.

23rd Jan 2008, 4:39 PM
@ honeynutcows no you dont have to quit anything! I dont think you did or say something wrong! its just a game and you are not the only judge there so if you like my pics the other wont like it ^_^ (I'll change it back XD)

@ Metatwaddle I dont think honey said anything wrong! you can see the others keep saying this pic nice and that pic does not! everyone changed their pics many times so there is no problem in saying they like it or not!
and i'm not speaking because she said that to me ^_^ cool down, its a game and I know i will never win it XD;

BillBoard size 650x400.
Full body or Waist shot.

I'm a little confused about this all - the specs say that the photos are supposed to be 650 x 400, and mine are according to my PC, does it matter if you do it in landscape or portrait? I realize that my billboard is in "portrait" position, but I was under the impression that it didn't matter as long as we kept the 650 x 400 dimensions.

Also, I finally understand that the model should be in a full swimsuit rather than a bikini, I thought that meant "no bikini bottoms and hair covering the boobies" :P I'll go and change that ASAP :D

23rd Jan 2008, 7:55 PM
wait does the billboard have to be 650x400?

or can it be less and more(linked to the bigger version)

23rd Jan 2008, 9:43 PM
nostalgic your pic is very creative! I could never have thought of that! Kudos!

23rd Jan 2008, 11:27 PM
Eeeeepirates! :D

And yeah, sorry if I was out of line with the comment. I definitely didn't think Honey should quit, since she's the only judge dedicated enough to comment and score the applications! So thank you for that.

I just thought... it's sort of like a real judge not being allowed to counsel either the prosecution or the defense. I was in traffic court the other day and the judge was describing what might happen if I pleaded guilty/not guilty, but he couldn't actually say "You should plead not guilty". Obviously this isn't SRS BSNS like real court, but you get the point :)

So yeah, no hard feelings to anyone.

23rd Jan 2008, 11:49 PM
thanks for the comments. i spent quite a while on the background since i did like 85% by hand and its my first background ive made ever on my own. its not the best for sure but i did what i could with what i know. (currently working on billboard still thinking of ideas but it will take less work on the billboard then the beach)

24th Jan 2008, 12:14 AM

no hard fellings at all i just wanted you guys to fell happy with your judges as iv'e been in contests where bad choices of judges have spoiled it :beer: well i'd better stop being off topic now.....

24th Jan 2008, 12:56 AM
Charlotte - it doesn't matter if it is landscape or portrait, as long as the size is 650x400.

Honey - You are doing a awesome job as a judge, so there is no need to quit.

Luv - Everyone has a chance of winning this contest....Even YOU!!

Metat - Every judge is just a dedicated as the rest of them. I did not ask judges to comment on the Application round. Honey commented, but that does not mean that the other judges are less dedicated.

PLEASE NOTE: I have been asked for an extension. So this round will close on the 25th.

Everyones entries are just stunning. Congrats :D

24th Jan 2008, 3:42 AM
Them are some serious pictures! They all knocked me off my feet. Lucky I am not a judge, because they have a hard one to decide on. I need to get into one of these competitions. I love taking pics with my sims. I try to get the next one :) but till then let me enjoy these.

24th Jan 2008, 6:20 AM
im done YAY!!!

24th Jan 2008, 6:34 AM
Really well done Nostalgic, very creative with that beach pic.

The Round will close at 1.00pm tomorrow, my time
There are 2 people who have not submitted a round one entry and only 1 incomplete...

There will be 4 eliminations at the end of this round.

24th Jan 2008, 6:34 AM
Nostalgicpaty I think your beach pic definitely takes the cake this round :D it is so spunky! Very different and fun approach to "owning the beach"!

24th Jan 2008, 7:05 AM
lol thanks! im blushing really i am. i usually don't get much positive feedback. even one good comment makes me smile and sort of makes my day. I know this contest isnt going to be easy cause u all have such good ideas (i had a hard time coming up with a diamond quote cause most of them were taken or put in different words) so i am really happy with this contest so far thanks for making it mumo!

24th Jan 2008, 7:46 AM
I do feel bad for the judges, everyones rounds are all so good, it's going to be tough to judge.
I'm loving your beach shot nostalgicpaty very unique and creative :beer:
Can't wait till the judging round, I'm quite excited.
Good Luck ladies :buddies:

24th Jan 2008, 7:58 AM

Good luck all

Round Two will be up shortly.

25th Jan 2008, 2:12 AM

Welcome and congratulations on making it through to Round 2. For this round you will need your creative juices flowing.


For both tasks this round you are required to interpretate the following sayings. You have free range with both these tasks.

Please submit one picture for each of the quotes, but PLEASE, NO PSYCHEDELLIC COLOURS. You may have other sims in your picutres too.

Task 1

I never knew until that moment how bad it could hurt to lose something you never really had.

Task 2 *my favourite one*

I dropped a tear in the ocean. The day you find it is the day I will stop missing you.

1. Who do you think your biggest competition here (please be specific) is and Why?

2. If you could change anything about any of your pictures from any round which one would it be? And Why?

Please Note:
This round will finish on the 29th, at 11.00pm (my time)

25th Jan 2008, 2:23 AM
Good luck everyone! I love sitting here and seeing all your creative ideas! :couch: Can't wait to see what you guys do for rthe next round!

25th Jan 2008, 2:38 AM
Thanks for the heads up mumo, I'll get started on it after the eliminations are announced :D

25th Jan 2008, 3:07 AM
could more then one person be in the picture?
by the way this round sounds really challenging im going to have to bring out my magic bag of thoughts for this one.

25th Jan 2008, 3:10 AM
Most certainly...I will edit the round, so that people know. Thanks Nost.

Round One is Officially Closed.

25th Jan 2008, 3:13 AM
I'll start once the elliminations are announced. Don't want to have started the round and then get elliminated. ^^

25th Jan 2008, 3:27 AM
I'll start once the elliminations are announced. Don't want to have started the round and then get elliminated. ^^

lol, exactly what I was thinking :lol:

25th Jan 2008, 3:27 AM
Judges have been pmed. Good Luck to all of you.

25th Jan 2008, 3:27 AM
Right right :) this one sounds like it will be great. I'll ask questions about it after the eliminations are over, I suppose (assuming I'm not one of them :blink: )

25th Jan 2008, 5:00 AM
I'll start once the elliminations are announced. Don't want to have started the round and then get elliminated. ^^Haha, me too. :) I don't know if I'm going to make it past this round, so I'll just sit tight. I'm going to create some new Sims too... just to practice making unique, beautiful Sims that I can enter in contests later.

25th Jan 2008, 5:07 AM
my scores are in good luck guys

25th Jan 2008, 7:47 AM
oooo can't wait to get started but I agree with Charlotte and Bexstar. I'll wait for the eliminations to be announced.
When are they due to be posted anyway? :anime:

25th Jan 2008, 8:24 AM
Good Luck everybody!http://www.kolobok.us/smiles/light_skin/wink.gif

25th Jan 2008, 8:54 AM
Heidi - I sent the pms today, so I am hopeful that the other 2 judges will have their scores in by tomorrow. As soon as I have them, I will tally them up and post them straight away...Believe it or not, I am just as anxious as everyone else, and I am just the host. :D lol

25th Jan 2008, 11:43 AM
Mumo, what is the time in your country to the GMT time? mine is GMT+3
I want to know so I can always calculate when the rounds will end.. ^^;

25th Jan 2008, 12:07 PM
Luv I am +10, So at the moment it is 10.07pm here... I will always post how long there is until the end of a round, just so everyone gets the heads up so to speak.

25th Jan 2008, 3:32 PM
Ok thanks mumo ^_^
I will start working after I see the results :O

25th Jan 2008, 8:04 PM
gah im so impatient i cant wait to see what we all got. good luck everyone!

oh by the way can we change our sims hair color?

25th Jan 2008, 10:55 PM
I never knew until that moment how bad it could hurt to lose something you never really had.

I dropped a tear in the ocean. The day you find it is the day I will stop missing you.

1. Who do you think your biggest competition here (please be specific) is and Why? Honestly, I think I'm pretty good, but here are people with better graphic card than mine, that can post in-game shots.
2. If you could change anything about any of your pictures from any round which one would it be? And Why? I love my pictures from this contest and I wouldn't change any of them. Maybe I will re-do the pose from the first pic for this round.

25th Jan 2008, 11:13 PM
Okay now I'm too anxious to get started, I must ask XD for the two interpretive ones, can we do more than one pic per- like a montage? Or should we keep it to only one?

Also, does the confessional have a picture?

26th Jan 2008, 12:57 AM
My heart was never really mine. It was his...

i dont think thats the correct quote.

26th Jan 2008, 1:02 AM
Nostalgic - Yes you can change your sims hair colour.

Dreea - they are just gorgeous. Beautiful interpretations.

Enders - Please only one picture for both interpretations, and no it is not necessary for a confessional pic.

Just waiting on 1 more judge and then can put the scores up.

26th Jan 2008, 2:22 AM

Wow...Scores are in:

Firstly, I asked the judges to pick their favourite BB and Beach pictures and here are the Favourites for this round:






Here are the Comment for Round One.

Amera Harash - Beautiful billboard picture, very glamorous. Like the beach shot but she looks cold rather than sexy.
wow is all i can say, this picture is beautiful ans amera looks so regal and beautiful the pose,the expression they are all spot on.
again another beautiful pictue amera looks so gorgeus and your eyes go straight to her one thing i would say is add a lil shading around her feet to make her look like she is there but amazing beautiful picture.
Total Score=149

Akemi Jin - The billboard didn't really stand out for be, but I loved your beach shot, plenty of attitude. i love this picture akemi looks very pretty the one quam i have is the white lines around her a lil erazing can go a long way but other than that a fantastic pic.
i love this pic akemi looks so free and fun, again a lil quam i have her left hand has un-erased white, those small details mean a lot in pictures.
Total Score=142

Kioko Naruse - your billboard looks beautiful the lighting colours everything seem so regal one thing,she sort of looks floating on the chair and should be a little lower down.
i think your sim looks really beautiful in this picture all round a great job
Very dramatic billboard but it's hard to tell that she's wearing diamonds as she's quite far away. Beach picture looks nice but fun rather than sexy.
Total Score=148

Ava Pemberly - i love this picture using the two pictures of ava and loved the added times square touch.
i like this picture but i just like it it needs a little extra something maybe eye contact or a more unique pose. She seems to blend into the background of the billboard, a darker colour would have made her stand out more. Nice beach shot, might have been better is she was looking into the camera.
Total Score= 141

Solace Gilmore - love the overall look of this photo but i fell the expression let you down a bit solace looks a little awkward.
i adore this picture the backdrop is puuurfect and your sim looks stunning. Nice billboard, her eyes really stand out but it woul dhave been nice if they made eye contact. Lovely beach shot, the simple background works well.
Total Score=144

Roberta Rubino - your billboard is one of my favourites she looks stunning and the effects make it amazing.
i adooore this picture your sim just glows natural beauty its very hard to pull off a pretty smile in the sims but you have done this perfectly. She looks beautiful in the close-up but overall I think t's a bit too fussy. The angle of the beach shot is a bit odd and loos very posed.
Total Scores=151

Sonar Lee Salem - Sonar looks stunningly gorgeus on this photo and i love the simlish touch.
i love how you have made her pose unique which i admire i would love to see sonar with a bit less makeup though see her real beauty. Nice billboard but I find my eyes drawn to the building instead of her. Beach pose seems a bit awkward, sometimes less is more.
Total Score=143

Shana Artiste - i adore this picture theres nothing more i can say yours is the only sim i think iv'e ever seen pull of maxis lipstick.
shana is soo cute and i love that about her but i would love to see a sexier side for this task as its sexy on the beach. Beautiful billboard, simple and elegant. Beach shot is more fun that sexy.
Total Score=142

Sabrina Green - i adore this picture sabrina looks so elegant.
i love this picture i love the way she is sat on the tree and adore her outfit
I like the idea of the billboard but eye contact would have been good. Nice use of the posing hack in the beach shot.
Total Score=145

Rosalie Nightroad - so beautiful your sim is such a stunner i love the pose and the background and the diamond just makes it perfect.
wow i love this the background pose expression they all look great overall your entry is one of the best. Great billboard, love the pose. Nice beach shot but not much attitude.
Total Score=154

Iona Darling - i think iona looks quite bored in this picture everything looks great but i feel the expression needs work.
now this is more like it i adore this pciture the pose and expression are great and the picture is one of the best. Billboard doesn't stand out, seems a bit flat. Nice angle on the beach shot but not alot of attitude.
Total Score=136

Giselle Choi - i love this picture and the three pictures together are great.
i think the pose on this picture could be better she looks a bit like she is halfway through sitting down i love the background and composition though over all good job. I like the idea behind the billboard but you can't see the diamonds very well. Another nice beach shot but again not very sexy.
Total Score=124

Carmen Silveira - i love this picture her expression pose and outfit are perfect this picture is beautiful.
i loove carmens espression on this picture she looks so sultry this picture is great. Billboard a bit plain but I kind of like plain! If you had gone in a bit closer we would have seen the diamonds better. Love your beach shot.
Total Score=147

Kaisia Miles - i would have loved to have seen more of kaisias face in this picture you cant really see her beauty.
i love the originallity of this picture it has some of most creative ideas out of everyone. I like the concept of your billboard but I think there is too much going on in it. Beach shot is but but you can't really see her face.
Total Score=125

Erika Yamamoto - love this picture its fantasic and the slogan justs finishes it perfectly.
i adddooorree this pose so original and sexy amazing job. Great billboard, she really stands out in her red dress. Nice beach shot but eye contact with the camera would be nice.
Total Score=144

Savannah Steele - i love the colours in this picture it glows and looks great i also love the way she is laying on the text a beautiful picture.
amazing pciture and the pose is great i also love how youv'e blended it to make her look like she is the sand good job. Nice billboard, very eye catching. Lovely beach shot, my only complaint would be that her legs seems slightly out of proportion.
Total Score=156

Jacqueline Rose - love the pose and background in this but i feel the lightings a bit off overall an amazing picture.
i'm in aww the expression pose background everything is so creative i love the pirate theme that was so original i think this picture is fabulous great job. Beautiful billboard. The beach shot is... different! I can't decide whether I love it or just like it!
Total Score=162

Our top three Ladies for this round are:

Jacqueline Rose :1st:

Savannah Steele :2nd:

Rosalie Nightroad :3rd:

Congratulations to our top three.

I am sorry to say that Kaisia, Giselle and Iona have been eliminated. Good luck with future contests.

26th Jan 2008, 3:33 AM
Aww, I understand. Good luck to everyone!

26th Jan 2008, 3:39 AM
Hmm, well as you can imagine I'm a bit peeved (yet I'm kind of happy with my scores). So, I accidentally left a couple tiny bits of white on my beach picture. But I have no idea what the judge is talking about when they say that I should've erased the white lines around Akemi on my billboard picture, because that was intentional and I thought I made that pretty obvious. I don't know, maybe I'm over reacting. Anyway, I didn't get eliminated so I'm just going to start my new round and make sure every single white bit is erased.

26th Jan 2008, 3:50 AM
Bexstar i think there was comments from more then one person so it could have been another judge speaking about the beach picture.

it sucks to see people go i can imagine judging for the contest everyone had something that was really good for their entries.

But i really can't believe i got #1 thats never happened to me before. im usually somewhere at the bottom. I agree with the light being off so I should work on that since its one of my weaknesses. Anyways thanks for the score and comments judges.

im off to start my round 2 then.

26th Jan 2008, 4:07 AM
Well nice comments I guess. I just have one little thing to contest about the makeup- for the first pic we were told what makeup to use and thats what I used, if I lost points for that thats a little silly. The second shot couldnt be the one you were referring to as she isnt wearing any makeup(lipgloss maybe) as instructed. Soo. Im still in.. sorry to see the two go. Ill try to do less... Congrats to the top three. I really did luv that pirate pic!

26th Jan 2008, 4:07 AM
Oh wow, you know, I came up with so many pictures for my billboard and decided that I liked the simpler one better. I also agree with my beach shot, I was hurried at the time (had to change from bikini to full swimsuit on the last minute, and then accidentally scrapped my original swimsuit shots lol) - thank you judges for the feedback :)

ETA: May I add, it's maxis blush too :D

26th Jan 2008, 5:54 AM
Yay! I'm thrilled to have done so well (seventh place out of 19 and a judge's pick is better than I was hoping for). The next round sounds pretty hard, though. I've got a song to use as inspiration for the first one, but the picture will be tricky. I'm not sure what in the world I'm going to do for the second.

26th Jan 2008, 6:28 AM
Congratulations to the big 3!http://www.kolobok.us/smiles/artists/laie/Laie_60A.gif ... and great job everyone!http://www.kolobok.us/smiles/artists/laie/Laie_82.gif

26th Jan 2008, 6:37 AM
Congrats to the top three! Your sims are really beautiful :)

It looks like really obvious photoshop added backgrounds is the really big thing for this contest, unfortunately, I'd already started working on part one and had grown attatched to it--although, I have combined 5 different images for the single finished product, but my background is in game :\ I hope that's okay.

Task 1:

I figured that a lot of people were going to take a romantic angle, so I thought that I'd try something different. So my sim is mourning the loss of her unborn child.

Task 2:

26th Jan 2008, 7:56 AM
Oh no!!! I had thought of that theme too :cry: so much for originality... back to the drawing board for me...

I'm fairly happy with my score, too. Looks like I'm pulling average right now, but I'm hoping this round will be a strength for me :)

26th Jan 2008, 9:26 AM
Well that's me done and I agree with the coments and scores. A hearty congratulations on the top three girls. Also keep it together all you other ladies, you still have it all to play for. Yes the pirate lady, was brilliant, inspired. I will still lurk to see how the contest pans out.
Mumof5 I do hope you wil do another contest in the future as it has sure be the most popular thing on the boards for some time. :beer:

26th Jan 2008, 10:54 AM
Sorry for the girls eliminated! You did a wonderful job. I'm not very happy with my scores, but yeah....I'm never happy with my scores beacuse I always work my a** off all day for them. :) Congrats for the top three :)
