Sorry for the wait! I've had a crazy year :/ But I've finally got Elvis made and added him to the Famous Faces Collection! Thanks for being patient with me!

Updated 2/18/11

I've added three new paintings in a separate rar, and updated the allpaintings.rar file to include these. The separate rar file should now be available - I forgot to upload it the first time!


These are all original drawings or paintings I've made over the years. I edited some of my favorite pictures to fit the easel canvas (that thing is absurdly tall!) and to make things a bit cleaner in game. I had originally just stuck these in my game because I wanted some variety in my custom paintings... and because I'm a bit vain But I thought that others might like a few of these as well. I've included several different collections based on subject, and an archive that has all of the paintings in one. Feel free to pick and choose as you like.

How to use:

These images are for custom paintings. When you use the easel, select "paint custom painting" and you should get a dialog box showing these new images, assuming you have installed them to the correct directory. They should line up with the canvas using either the fill or crop option.

Usage policy:

Please do not claim the credit of these pictures as your own. These represent several years of hard work for me. You may use these in stories or uploads, but please provide me with the credit and link back to the original thread. You can recolor as you wish, but if the original still shows through please provide me with the credit of it. I have included my "signature" (more of an artistic logo
using the intials of my maiden name) in all the pictures. It should be large enough to be visible, but hopefully not large enough to be annoying.


DO NOT PLACE THESE IN THE DOWNLOADS FOLDER! It shouldn't hurt your computer or game if you put them there by mistake, but you won't be able to access your paintings. These go in the paintings directory in your EA games folder, typically found under My Documents\EA Games\The Sims 2\Paintings.

This is what one of the paintings looks like in the process of being created.

I hope you enjoy! If you want to see more of my work, check out my Facebook Page.

Additional Credits:
All of these paintings are completely original works of art, but I did get reference from "Anatomy for Artists" and the internet. I'm afraid I don't know the source for all of my drawings anymore, but if you see something and wish to be credited, let me know
