So this Photo is from Primadonna Cycle 1 and is the first assignment. We had to have our model in an evening gown in a place you wouldn't normally do a photoshoot. I was originally going to go in game and do a graffitti'd alley, but couldn't get it just right so, I found this picture and pasted my sim into the background. Most times I prefer in game photos and still pasting the model in for more creative control, but I do like this photo.
For this Throwback Tuesday, we have another competition by Vid, this one being the boys edition of Little Miss Twisted.
This was A7 and it was a lot of fun working with the B&W twist that Vid gave me due to almost being eliminated in A6. I painstakingly worked on this pic to get it just write and worthy of a magazine cover. I wouldn't have done it any differently as it is by far my favorite magazine cover I have ever done. Scores will follow after the Pic.
93/100 Overall picture
15/20 Creep factor
Well I can definitely tell you enjoyed the B&W twist! Love that you went all out with the magazine cover look right down to the bar code even! I do think you could of fit the words in better. They look cut off on the side even in large view. Anyway, the fashion aspect of this assignment was executed well. The pointy ears wasn’t really approved, so I take 1 messily point off. lol I also wasn’t crazy about the makeup or the hair. It came off as too much. Maybe less makeup or a different hairstyle would of read better. Even a much brighter shade for his hair would of helped! I did think the city background was too an odd choice for such whimsical style. A forest or something a little more exciting would of read better in B&W behind your model. No matter I really love all the detail and the concept! With a usually hard punishment and tough competitors, you did quite well!

20/20 Creep Factor
WOAHWOAHWOAH :o As a judge, I'm usually not the one who just hands out flawless scores [in fact, I'm pretty sure this is the only one I've ever given!] but you captured the fashion side of this assignment perfectly while still keeping the creepy spirit of the competition - and you definitely deserve this perfect score.
☠Added Total: 305 ☠
Incidentally, I also won second place from the competition overall.
I'm so glad I started to title the modelling pics with the name of the competition and the assignment, otherwise I'd have no idea what the picture was about.
This was one of JKAmaryllis' competitions back in 2011. The first assignment was to take something that was always overdone as an assignment and troll it, and we also had to write a blurb (which I found; it follows the picture):
I’ve been as guilty as other hosts for using the color assignment. It’s an easy concept to come up with but a pain when you’re the one that has to do the assignment. The reasons to hate it: whether you are representing one or three colors, it takes away a competitor’s creative license. Especially if you can only use those colors, and sometimes the colors given clash but they want you to make it work. How? By divine intervention. Or they want an explanation of what the color represents which means researching and coming up with the perfect story of what the color means to your model and it gets so tedious after awhile with no originality in sight, because they all end up looking the same after awhile.
Well, Represent This!
Comments: I love the edgy pattern in the background and her pose. Love how there is no rhyme or reason to the color scheme and as a whole it's just kind of in your face. One thing that is distracting me a little is the bottom of her skirt.. Maybe if it had been shot at a slightly different angle then you wouldn't notice the awkward area below her hand.
Relevance to assignment 27/30
I agree that that assignment is overplayed and stifles creativity!
This picture is stunning! Your model looks absolutely gorgeous! There are so many colors going on and she actually pulls it off. I really don’t feel like it is ridiculing the assignment, looks too good.
So this was one of Vid's Competitions back on the old forum. Before we started using one thread to house the entire competition and before pose player. I managed to track down the old thread and find what the assignment was about:
" Welcome to the wild wild west that is modeling! 2 down and 14 to go! For this assignment you are to make your model over into iconic cowboy image! You be created and put your own crazy spin, but make sure the wild west is what the picture portrays. Fail to impress me and your gunslinger may be pushing up daisies or in this case eliminated!
-Must be cowboy attire and have a setting to match!
-Doesn't necessary have to wear a cowboy hat. They had derbies and such back then or go with none.
-Ever heard of Aliens and Cowboys. Hollywood is always mixing two genres up!
-Only little editing is allowed. No putting your sims on backgrounds, no pasting of objects in pics. You may change the color and such as making it black or white, etc. You may also edit constrast and brightness, but use what you have in game. Will allow little minor fixes, but thats it! *lettering may be allowed in some assignments*
- No copying
- CC is allowed
- Extras are allowed, but model must be the focus of the pic
- Keep to the assignment
-Be polite and have fun!
Anyone breaking these rules will be eliminated!!!
Just me, Vid! Will be guest judges from time to time. Since it's only me though you must work harder to impress! Bawhahaha!

comments". I even found the scores (posted after the piccie)
I loooove this picture! Everything is just perfect and your model looks great! The setting, the props, everything just fits! Awesome job!
Woot! 2nd place! Pretty good for beginner editing skills, no pose player, and using two vampires (Arashi, the model) and my simself!
