Hello everyone, it's been a LONG time! Anyways, I figured that I should come back with something different. So here's my newest sim. THE Dragon himself; Bruce Lee! I think I don't need to waste my time writing an introduction for him. If you don't know who he is, then you must have been living in a hole in the very depth of Earth' core. He's one of the most influencial person to our world's pop culture, if you want to read a little about him, try this link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bruce_Lee . I like Bruce Lee because watching him gives me confidence. He has accomplished many things in his short 32 years, more than most of us can accomplish in our lifetime, and I respect him for that.

I must admit that I had a bit of trouble looking for parts that resembles him, which is funny since his appearance is so basic. In the end I used marvine's top muscle mesh, and funnyycats' "pretty boy" hair mesh. The muscle mesh is perfect, Bruce Lee has a medium sized figure, and that's what the mesh offers. The hair mesh is the best I could find, it's a great mesh, but not quite Bruce Lee. He has a slightly puffed up hair, but who would make a hair mesh that's 40 years old anyways?! The mesh links are in the download section. Make sure you download the mesh or the character won't show up correctly, here are the links.

The rest of the custom contents are all made by me, that includes clothing recolor, skin recolor, eye recolor, (cheap =P) hair recolo, and facial remodeling.

I think that covers just about everything, I hope you guys enjoy this upload, and see you next time

You did a Bruce Lee?! I did a search before I made him and nothing came up...this is weird. But yeah, I was going to use that stupid hair by Maxis, then I give up editing it because no matter what I did it wouldn't come out right.

Thank you everyone

By the way, to all those video game fanatics who plays fighting games like Soul Calibur/Blade, Tekken, Dead or Alive, Street Fighter, and etc. Characters like Maxi/Li Long, Law, Jann Lee, (especially) Fei Long, are taken their designs from ol' Bruce and his Jeet Kun Do (movies versions though). And if you read Manga or watch Anime at all, guess where Rock Lee came from.

Main Entry: popular culture

If you ever watched the first Lion King before, try to remember the end when Rafiki VS hyenas, and he poped that Kung Fu stuff, that's a parody of Bruce Lee. It's just an example I can think on top of my head.

If you want to make a real person, then you need to adjust every aspect to make the sim look like the real person, for example; you used Maxis default skin tone, well how are you going to make it look like Bruce Lee if you can't illustrate his facial features? All the Maxis default have only the most basic things of a person's face, well if the person you are trying to make have a mole on his/her face, then you'll be in trouble.
