The two problems I had with 'Jazz Cats' were its ridiculous price and its almost equally ridiculous frame. 'Jazz Cats', like most of the bigger paintings in Sims 4 catalog, has this lavish rococo-style frame. Which looks kind of odd around a cartoony picture of, well, cats playing jazz. Perhaps that's exactly the joke. But while making recolors of 'Jazz Cats' I felt like doing something about this. So I edited the frame too, making it simpler and suitable for more interior styles. The picture itself I replaced with four wonderful pieces by women artists.
This is my first object recolor. 'Child of Light' is a fairy-tale/fantasy game by Ubisoft with a unique visual style: the backgrounds and concept-art look like they were drawn by hand in watercolor. I fell in love with this art's dream-like ambience and soft colors, so these images were among my first choices for bringing into my Sims 4 world.
Building this house I wanted to create a slightly rustic atmosphere and the feeling of a place with some history, a place which gives its inhabitants a lot of privacy - a serene little world. It is designed for a family with children or teens. Two gardens - a smaller one in front and a large picturesque backyard with barbecue area - give nature-loving sims plenty of room for their botanical ambitions. If caring for plants leaves them a little spare time, they can paint, relax by the fireplace or play and play a violin-piano duet.
This small old-fashioned cottage occupies Crick Cabana's place in Willow Creek. Conveniently situated near two fishing spots and an entrance to hidden world, it's perfect for passionate fishermen, gardeners and other sims who enjoy exploring the neighborhood. Small in size, it still offers a lot for sims: a garden, a pool on a terrace overlooking the river, items to develop diverse skills and space to display stuff they've collected on their journeys. I tried to give it a vintage style, but with a fresh feeling, so all ages from young adult to elder might feel at home, but taking the price into account it works better for a retired couple than as a starter (if you don't cheat, of course :3).
