Silk & Velvet

Hey guys, here are the new faces I’ve been working on. I started these because I wanted an alternative to my current Naughty & Nice face skins. The nose on those is rather defined in the tip area which makes very nice button noses but not much else. I also wanted to take the time to fix a few other issues on the originals. The eyelids were bothering me, for example, among other things.

So I came up with ‘Silk’, it’s a smoother, more highlighted less shaded version of my original faces. The entire nose length is smooth and highlighted and I have muted a lot of the shaded areas on the face, for example the eye socket area, undereyes and the cheeks. The lip texture was smoothed and softened and the eyelid area was neatened up with the tear-ducts scaled down slightly.

Here is Silk:

From then I started playing with the nostril area and I ended up with a face that had a more defined nostril. I couldn’t decide which I preferred and I knew that some of you would like silk whilst others would like velvet, so I decided to publish both.

Here is Velvet:

Here is a comparison of the three skins:

The elder face skins were also smoothed out a little to match the Silk & Velvet YA skins. The noses were changed accordingly. You can see them in the gallery below.

Both faces come in Default and Non-Default and will match up nicely with my Naughty & Nice and my Busty St Clair body skins.
They also have custom sliders which have the names printed on them, you can see an example below. The selection dots are black & white and the sliders come in a range of colours.

If you have previously downloaded the full set of Default Naughty & Nice Face/Body skins and wish to use one of these faces as default instead, then I suggest you remove the Naughty & Nice full set and just install the bodies then you can choose which faces you like.

You can download one of these faces as your default if you wish, and you can also have the other as a non-default. At the moment I have my Naughty & Nice faces installed, my Busty st Claire bodies and I have Silk and Velvet as non-defaults.

Enjoy <3

P.S. A few people have asked me about the model I used for these screenies. If you download my Mia Farris sim at my blog I'm pretty sure all you have to do is edit her eyes slightly, remove her makeup and add the silk skin and she will resemble this model
