This is a featured upload! It showcases the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Jesse L. Martin played Tom Collins in the original Broadway cast of RENT, as well as the movie version.

-Custom skin tone by me
-Custom eyebrows and beard by me
-Custom hair with new mesh by me (included)
-Recolor of custom eyes by Joanne Dyer (included with permission. For the full set of original colors, see her MTS2 post here.)
-Maxis black t-shirt and jeans

-The skin files for both genders and all ages are a custom shade that falls between the darkest and second-darkest Maxis skin tones. The adult male face is the only face that is custmomized. I may eventually make another version that has customized faces for all ages/genders.
-The hair mesh is customized for young adult, adult, and elder males only. The other ages are the same as the Maxis "close cropped" haircut.
-All screenshots were taken *in game*, some of them just have the backgrounds removed

Terms of Use:
-Please do *not* upload my files (this includes meshes, recolors, and textures) to any other website, personal or otherwise.
-Please do *not* reuse this skin as part of any other Sims or skin packages

***The black knit cap is *NOT* included in the download. It is available separately at Sims 4 Rent***

Feedback is much appreciated. Enjoy!

Oh My God! I was making the cast too (not to post, just for my own pleasure and to see how well I skin real people). I have to say, you're doing a much better job than I am!

check out my Simblr. Mostly object recolors.

This is an absolutely perfect likeness, while still retaining sim-realism. You've got a great artist's eye and attention to detail. Very, very well done.
