This is a Maxis Recolour which means that it is a recolour of an item that already exists in your game. Please check the Expansion pack requirements to see which game pack it recolours.
Ok guys here is the first of my set of male skins, the muscular version.
I will be making hairy and non-muscular versions in the not-too-distant future.

They are for teens, young-adult, adult and elders. They are in both light and dark tones and come in Default and Non-Default. You can get the full skins or just the faces / bodies.

These are barbie skins, if you want the ones with pubic hair that are compatible with anatomical meshes, you will have to check my site or sexysims.

Here's what I did:
· De-saturated the tone slightly
· Edited the eyes to give them a nice frame and inner eye corner
· Lips were given texture and highlighting
· Nostrils were shaped and defined
· Highlighted the forehead, upper cheekbones, nose, chin, ears
· Added nipples
· Added abdomen muscles (thanks to Kravenous for allowing me to edit a piece of his art to suit)
· Added snail trail / treasure trail and pubic hair to Naughty (using NagelSeries 19 ps brushes)
· Entire body was hand highlighted/shaded
· Veins were hand drawn onto the arms and backs of hands and wrists
· Edited the shoulder blades and highlighted/shaded the back
· Rounded the bum
· Cleaned up fingernails and toenails

Don’t forget to delete any other default male skins you have installed before using these!
If you download only faces then your faces will be mine and your bodies will be whatever default body skin you are using.
If you download only bodies then your bodies will be mine but your faces will be whatever default face skin you are using.

I'm pretty sure that bottom brown hair in the faces shot is by Tum Tum here

I am using aikea guinea's default replacement textures for my base hairs. You can find them all at Club Crimsyn

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

Give him a little bit more of a chest rug and he would be PERFECT...only a little bit though!!!

I am already falling in love with this sim I created... now it's going to be worser!!!!
(lol, this wouldn't work for Mr Flufferduff though... he'd need LOOOOTS more body hair and a decent beer gut. and MOOBS!!!)

They look really nice. Are they updated for Ambitions? I seem to have a problem with cc showing up since the latest expansion.

Willowleaf, they are the first in a set of three skins I am going to make. These ones are for people who like making athletic sims. They won't work well on fat sims.

Later I will make the non-muscular ones and the hairy ones.

Thanks everyone! I'm going to upload the model eventually too Loofah

Are you gonna make hairy in both muscular and non-muscular versions? Thanks for this- I'm waiting for SexySims to post up the more anatomical version.

Wow, LadyFrontbum, I am quite impressed with your work here. I think these just may be the best skins I've come across (at least in my opinion). I have yet to use any CC skins and now I will finally use these.

I have a few questions since I won't be able to play the game soon:

1. Is the naval Ambitions-tattoo-friendly? EA default skins aren't and I only ask because you painted the naval at a different spot. And I'm only talking about the naval tattoos that are supposed to circulate the naval.

2. For your female ones of the same project title, are there "muscular" and "non-muscular" versions, or just one type?

3. Are these skins teen-elder versions of your existing children ones, just that they are not for children?

Sorry about the questions. I'm just starting to notice your skins and taking quite an interest in your style. Regardless, these are very lovely. I will use the non-muscular ones as default and then use these and the hairy ones as non-defaults.

max, I haven't actually uploaded it to sexysims yet, I haven't had a chance. You can grab it at my blog in the meantime though. And yes hairy will be for both.

newblue - I assume so.

summi - thank you

frankie - Thank you!
1. I'm pretty sure I drew his navel on at the same point as the ea skin. I usually start with the ea skin and layer over the top so I try to make the navel and other important spots stay where they are.
EA skins aren't ambitions tattoo friendly? They didn't make the tattoos fit their own skins?

2. There are two types of female skins, the regular and the bustier/rounderbutt version. I haven't made musclier ones but I might one day.

3. They are teen - elder. So if you want ALL my skins, just install one of my female defaults, one of my male defaults, my child and my toddler. Then they will work from toddler to elder.

Thanks everyone

If they are as good as your female skins, I'll be a happy bunny. Thanks for working so hard on these. Mwah.

I feel honoured, a Spanish magazine wants to feature my Desperate Housewives and Will Smith in their feature on celebrity sims.

I'm extremely picky about replacement skins but... these just found a new home in my game. Gorgeous. <3 Must say I am excited to see non-muscular ones too, simply because I have quite an assortment of sims but I think I'll be okay with these in the meantime... haha!

EDIT: After installing/viewing... wow. These are every bit as gorgeous as they appear in the preview, something not every mod can boast for sure. They inspired me to get all your skin replacements. Thanks so much, seriously :D

I love these--they're awesome enough that they finally got me to download a default replacement, downloaded the rest of your skins while I was at it so everybody matched.

One thing... on very light skin tones, the elders end up looking a little funky. I've attached a screen shot--see how his face looks a little yellow compared to the surrounding skin? I'm not sure if that's the skin, or something else I've got installed--if nobody else sees it, let me know, and I'll keep hunting.

Oddly enough, I think the thing I love most about these skins is the way you improved the back musculature like CatofEvilGenius pointed out. That was something that really bugged me about the EA skin that no one seemed to change, so thanks for fixing a pet peeve of mine. :]

Definitely looking forward to the upcoming variations of this one!

Oh thanks everyone! <3

I'm glad some of you noticed the back - it was a right pain in the butt! I'm happy with how it ended up though, thanks to the helpful comments in cff.

Hmm has anyone else noticed the elder thing that lytefoot posted? Let me know. It could be because I added more yukky skin texture to the elders face that may have coloured it a bit more than I intended.

I'm not sure what you mean Otimier. Where did you want the body to show up? I can put it on a lampshade but that would just be weird I think. O_o Lol.

Don't take this the wrong way but I think a few of you aren't quite understanding what these are. They just replace the skin of the sim. You won't see them whilst your sim is wearing clothes because, well, they are wearing clothes. If you want to see your sim naked ALL THE TIME then you need to go download nude clothing meshes from sexysims2... or pay a crazy scientist to invent you some xray glasses.
