City Blues--Tahlvin Shadowtalon

While I was taking portrait shots for the upcoming character page a couple of weeks ago, I caught Tahlvin in a candid moment—staring out over the city in deep contemplation.

I wonder what he's thinking about?

    Mmmmm, Tahlvin ….. 😉 He looks different somehow, unless it's the lighting? Serious thoughts are going through his mind by the look of things, but I love the slight smirk on his face in the first picture (with the City Blues text).

    Kara said: He may look a bit different, Tanya. I once again tweaked his skin after the Christmas special (gave him more tattoos and new lips). He also grew some stubble.

    OMG! Love the tattoo on his neck…he just keeps getting sexier. He must be thinking of Sam…or me!! Haha, jk, that's just impossible :).

    Kara said: hehe! That neck tattoo was my sister's idea. I love it too!

    How can pixels be so hot?

    Kara said: I don't know. I keep asking myself the same question. It doesn't seem quite fair, does it?

    Tahlvin looks very handsome in these pics. I'm wondering what he's thinking too. He could thinking about something as serious about what his place is in the world or maybe he's thinking about where he's gonna go on his next holiday.

    Keep Simming!.

    See ya.

    Kara said: Thank you, Pandora. I asked him what he was thinking about but he refused and changed the topic. No matter, we'll just make him regret not telling us with all of our wild speculation!

    ~mmm, Tahlvin…

    He's surely deciding whether or not to tell me he loves me. I can hear it all in his head, "Does she feel the same? What if she doesn't say it back? Aw, hell, I'm just gonna do it." hee-hee


    Kara said: heehee! Looks like you may have a fight on your hands, VJ. Eva thought he was thinking about her too! 😉

    You all make me laugh. Thank you! A great way to start my day.

    😀 Brilliant. I've been lurking around here off and on since last year, or even further back. You hadn't even uploaded Chapter 1 yet when I started checking it out. I've decided to be brave and make myself known to you! =] I absolutely love your work! I wish I had a better computer, then I would do things like this as well… but my computer is just average. I should probably buy some more memory and space and junk like that. And a new graphics card.

    Anyway, I just love these pictures! Now because of Tahlvin (my imaginary boyfriend) I'll never be able to date because everybody else will be second class or something. He's so adorable! -hugs him tightly- I think I have a problem with falling for pixels… XD Oh well. Screw normality, it's so overrated.

    ~♥ Ju

    Kara said: Welcome, Ju! I'm a lurker at some sites still too. I should follow your example and make myself known. 🙂 And thank you so much! How sweet you are!

    And who wants to be normal anyway? How boring that would be. Oh, and wait until you see the little surprise I have concerning Tahlvin. Just a little hint…you'll finally find out what he sleeps in…

    My sis is in the same boat as you are with the computer. She's currently scrimping and saving so that she can hopefully get one at the beginning of next year. Good luck on updating yours. 🙂

    Well…humm, it is my first com'…I am in love of your pictures…everything is incredible…of course, Tahlvin is so hot XD…
    See ya

    Kara said: Welcome, AR, and thank you so much!

    I just can't get over how utterly real your simmies look! I've tried making some of my sims realistic looking, but they always turn out looking goofy! I love your sets too, great use of lighting and decor!

    Kara said: Thank you, Mandie! It actually took me a while to get my Sims to look the way they do—a lot of tweaking and fixing skins. Phew! I find it interesting to go back through the older pictures of my Sims. They've definitely changed since they first appeared. Not drastically, but still…

    I, like a few people who commented already, thought Tahlvin looked a bit different.. I think it's the unshaven look? I seem to remember smooth, hairless skin in past pictures. Anyway, he looks great. It might just be my attraction to sad characters, but it really does seem like he's contemplating something profound, like he's..missing something/someone.

    I'm getting all analytical here, as usual, but it's hardly something I can control..

    Adore the angles, by the way. As a photographer-to-be I am always looking for good angles. Lovely!

    Kara said: Yeah, I think it's interesting how different he looks with just some stubble. I originally was going to have all my male elves be beardless, but one of my elves insisted on stubble so I decided to give it to all my males. Plus, I just like that look on a guy. A very natural touch that I think is very masculine and sexy.

    I'm a (very) amateur photographer so it's fun to play around in the Sims with angles. It's much easier to take pictures in the Sims than it is in RL too! Well, at least for me.

  10. BanSidhe says:

    I think the last picture is going to be my wallpaper for a while …

    Kara said: He looks very thoughtful in that one, doesn't he? Enjoy it! 🙂

  11. Lisa says:

    A thoughtful Tahlvin is incredibly hot! Is it wrong to be lusting after someone else's sims?

    Kara said: Well, if it's wrong then I'm evil incarnate. heehee I lust after other people's sims all the time.

    I love the introspective look in these pics. And the reflection of the city in the glass behind him is just wow. Very cool! For a guy with pointy ears, he's pretty hunky. Then again, I thought Dr. Spock was, too… 8}

    BTW – thought you might be interested in this little UI mod I happened across today over at MTS2, being as you take screenshots and have to crop. 🙂

    Kara said: I'm sorry, I didn't see this was in moderation until today (10/24). My spam filter flagged it because of the link. Anyway, yes, I've seen that and thought it was a great idea. However, I didn't download it as I knew I'd end up cropping many of my pictures anyway and also I really depend on seeing that red pause border around the screen. I run my game in slow motion when taking pictures so I'm afraid I wouldn't know if the game was paused or not if I didn't see the border. haha Silly, I know.

    Yeah, I also like the pointy-eared guys. Although, I guess I'm partial to any hottie be they pointy- or round-eared. 😉
