This is a featured upload! It showcases the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Another of the Paintings series

Edmund Leighton was born in 1853, the son of painter Charles Blair Leighton. Edmund studied at the Royal Academy Schools.
While he painted some modern scenes, he is best known for his romantic, medieval paintings. These usually focus on young knights in armor, and young maidens with long, flowing hair and beautifully textured dresses.
His best known work is "The Accolade".

These clothes are based on the painting "Call to arms".

As a detail, the knight wears the same costume as the knight painted in "The Accolade"

Tecnical Details:

Mesh men: K8parsmaccoutier 140206 (Parcimonious)
Mesh Knight (am_leightonAccolade): Male Loincloth (tiggerypum)
Mesh Cape: generalzoi
Mesh Lady: Maxis (needs Nightlife)

I just went to check out your other uploads and they are all truly spectacular. This idea of recreating paintings into actual sim skins is so unique. I absolutely adore them all!

Very beautiful clothes. Great job on being featured.

Update: July 2009-I am back now to make invisible and tranparent recolors again in sims 2. You can pm me if you want your objects to be invisible and transparent from now.

very good job, as usual!

Sorry I can't take requests anymore!
And I will probably never convert my creations for TS2 to TS3.

The screenshot alone is truly amazing! Reminds me of some Sim versions of waterhouse paintings I was working on a while back. You do a great job. :D

Since the parsimonious mesh section URL is different, now, I had to google "parsimonious sims 2 meshes". Here they are:

I believe, the male mesh is on page 2, second row, second to last.

And, as always, thank you for the download. I don't always do a medieval theme community. (I have to steel myself not so, because it's soooo tempting.) But when I do, I always recall this as one of my favorite clothing sets.
