Soft Eyes

I've always wanted to try to make a good set of eyes. After looking over the sets of eyes I use most from my three favourite artists - Enayla (MTS2), BitzyBus (TSR), and schuldig_seiben (MTS2) - I wasn't terribly surprised to find that they had used very similar proportions of schlera, iris and pupil. The main problem I find with most downloaded sets is that the proportions of the visible part of the iris and pupil are incorrect, usually too small and/or too high set in relation to the bottom lid, giving sims a disturbingly pin-eyed look. The sets I was looking at were all ones where I was happy with the proportions of the eye.

I then created an eye layout of my own in Photoshop, using roughly the same proportions, and constructing it in layers so that all I had to do was alter the Hue/Saturation/Lightness of one layer to create different eye colours. And then, of course, I sat there for a while and did just that

Here's the result - three shades each of blue, brown, gold, green, hazel and purple, as well as a dark red vampire-type eye and an alien-type black eye with a subtle bit of iris showing.

I've also included a separate download of the alien eye as a default replacement. As with all default replacements, you can only have one of them at a time, so you'll need to remove or disable any alien default replacement eye you're currently using if you'd rather use this one.

Note: The eyes were created using the patched Pets bodyshop, so they should be base game compatible.
