Question: Does The Sims imitate life or does life imitate The Sims? Just Kidding. It's a Sims challenge inspired by painting! If you're an art nut like me, this is the challenge for you.

The Task
Choose a painting from any period or style in the history of art and create an interior or exterior in Sims inspired by it.
You can recreate what is depicted in the original painting, or simply take inspiration from its style, color palette, mood etc. How you choose to draw inspiration from the original is open and up to you.

The Rules
  • Max 10 pictures per entry. You may link to more in an album
  • Pictures may be no more then 800 pixel wide
  • You may enter 3 times, but choose a different painting each time.
  • Choose a painting yourself, use a suggested painting (see banner and below) or request one from the community.
  • Include a picture of the original painting in your post.
  • Have fun: Remember this is a challenge not a contest

You will get this nice shiny award for participating: [Image: story.png]

Woooo it opened! excited to see what everyone comes up with Smile
I am definitely going to try this, Sims 3. Those paintings are to die for.
Is it alright to find something on, say, Deviantart and use that? Also, what's the verdict on digital paintings?
Good question, I'd say deviantart as a source is ok, but stick to non-digital painting.
I have just added the participation prize for this challenge!
I found my painting, and now I'm starting on my entry 8D
