This took a lot longer than I anticipated. I got bogged down with work and school. But anyway, he is now complete! Hope you like him

Included with file:
Clothing textures--by me
Hair recolor--by me
eyebrows--by Sue (I still don't know the website...)
Cowboy hat--by funnyycats (I think this is included at least)
Skintone--by helaene
Eyes--by echo66

You'll need to download the clothing mesh here

and the hair mesh here

If the cowboy hat doesn't show, you'll also need to download it from the link above.

I don't think he requires Uni, but let me know if I'm wrong.

This. simply. Rules.

Though Irvine is far from my favorite character, whenever i made him for my FF8 houses he hever looked right without his hat or without the long hair.

Thanks for this :P

Irvine is my fave FF8 character! He's lovely!! and your sim of him is great! thanks xxx
#10 Old 2nd Dec 2005 at 7:05 PM
You even took the time to get his little turn-up nose to look right! Oh man, hehe I really love looking at the screen shots. You did an amazing job on him. Now I think I can rest happy knowing I have all three of my favorite men from Final Fantasy VIII in my sims game once and for all. All I needed was Mr. K ^_^ Thank you so much and he is much appreciated.

That's awesome, it looks just like him! I'd love to see a Zell one as well, 'cause all the sims I've found of him weren't very good...
Anywho... again, great work on Irvine, hope that we get to see more lovely work from you! =D

He's FANTASTIC! The likeness--and the smile! I loved Irvine as comic relief but my party was usually Squall, Zell, Selphie. Still I thought him and Selphie were too cute and he was a great character. Thanks :D

If only my life was as fun as my sims...

The facial likeness isn't that great, but the clothes are fab. Tell me, you didn't include a back shot of the head, does the hair show throught the cowboy hat?(as it does with certain hair styles)

kittyloaf: it did show through, but i made up a solution. I put the hat texture on the back of his head where it stuck out. The hat actually has a little bit of a sheen to it, so the head texture is matte compared to it. But it's not too noticeable.

harlequin: I'll put Ellone on my list as well :P
