This is the Corinthian, from the Sandman comic book series. If you are not familiar with this character, please see this Wikipedia entry for more information: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Corinthian. I've updated this guy before, but it's been a long time since his first upload, so I figured a whole new post was in order instead of just fixing the first post. Basically, it's hard to do a proper square jaw in this game (*shakes angry fist at Maxis*). Also, I didn't give him upturned lip corners. For some bizarre reason, this sim was absolutely DELIGHTED that I was messing about with him in CAS. His lip line is more or less straight.

Anyway, he's been drawn a few different ways, and I try to make more realistic sims. This is what came out. Artistic license, right? Right.

I've redone his eyes - they're now centered better and feature a creepy peek of gum at the eyelid edge. They're set to hyper-recessive, so they shouldn't get all up in your gene pool unless you have a lot of eyes set to 4 in your game. (And even then, they'd only have a 50-50 shot of showing up). If you're still nervous, I included some blush "contacts" to use instead with the eye genetic of your choice. Not hacked - sorry, didn't remember to.

I also made him a new hair texture (the rest of the recolors are here. I went with platinum blond instead of white BECAUSE I recently saw an albino and noticed that their hair had a yellow undertone. The platinum is actually much closer to naturally-occurring white than most 'white' textures are.

And now that I've been nattering on for a few paragraphs, I'll just cut to the credits and let you get on with downloading your new sim.
