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.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
This is the "anti shine" version of my one and only skintone set (handpainted). Because of many requests i changed the faces and the bodys, so that they dont look too shiny and the shadows are not so intensive. The colors of the skintones I changed a little too.

Default replacements are following

Skin Type: Human Realistic
Skin Flags: None Nipples

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

A nice change, especially the shading around the eyes. The previous skin, while it looked very good, suggested shading and contours that didn't always reflect the underlying geometry of the face. I think this new version is more "shape neutral" and lends itself better to more different shapes of faces.

I don't download skins but I had to commend you on these, they're very beautiful! I'm actually tempted to make an exception for these :x

Will you be making a dark skin too? That's all that is missing from this great set : )
