Beech Modeling Assignment 5

Random pic spam of Marrissa... <333

For Assignment 5, we had to show our model center stage. And this round we went burlesque. And when I researched "burlesque" I was completely confused... D:
Let's just hope it's close enough. x]

Thankfully, this round is non-elimination... so if I screwed up, I'm not too worried about it. :]
I'm also concerned that she doesn't really look center stage... as the picture is pretty close up... O.O

Pic spam! <3

Open House! :D

Some of you may remember when I had to take that entrance exam for that all boys Catholic high school (-_-). I still haven't gotten the results back, but on the bright side, I'm going to the open house for the public high school I want to go to tonight! I'm hoping everything works out for the best! ;D

Crazy and Colorful Assignment 7

For this assignment, we had to show our model being crazy in a photoshoot. At first, I was going for a formal business ad gone stripper. x]
But right in the middle of it I didn't like where it was going, so I stopped. XD

Then I decided to go with an art ad gone stripper! (Sensing a theme yet? ;D)

I'm pretty pleased with the final result (last picture). I'm not a huge fan of the angle, but it was the only way I could get her to actually look at the camera. :)

I'm 14! O.O

At this rate, I'll be driving in no time. ;D
I got to open a few of my presents yesterday, and in addition to the $150 worth in gift cards (O.O) I got a Kindle Fire. <3
And I think it's safe to say that I'm officially in love with it! :D
I still have a few presents to open today, too. :]

New Model!

I made a new model, for nothing in particular, but I love her. <3
Her name's Francesca Dupont. I tried out bigger lips than what I usually do, on her, and I think they came out pretty lovely. :3


And here's a random shot that I got when I went into the save (of Trinity, not Francesca). XD

Thanksgiving and My Birthday... ;D

Hey guys! As always, we're hosting Thanksgiving at my house this year, so I have a lot of family staying with me this week - which means I won't be able to Sim all that much. D:
So you probably won't see me around. And in case you don't, I just wanted to wish all of those who celebrate it a Happy Thanksgiving! <3
Oh, and I just thought I'd let you all know that my birthday is Friday. x]
I'll be 14! Woot! :D

GJWHF Assgnment 10

For Assignment 10 of Girls, we had to show our model having fun in May. I settled on portraying National Photograph month and doing a "Go Green" photo shoot. Here's Tay and Drew experimenting this this adorable pose! <3
I really like the pose, I'm just not a fan of the facial expressions, so I didn't use it.

I know I used this pose last cycle, but it just suits them so well! :D

Seriously though! Look how happy we look together! <3

Some interesting pictures of some of my extras... x]

I just took this picture because I thought these two made a cute couple. XD

And here were some attempts at my picture! I finally settled on the last one! I think it turned out pretty good! :D
I can see myself loosing points for cutting off the photographer's head and for Tay's feet being covered by flowers, but my game crashed in the middle of my photo taking so I had to do with the photos I had. :P

And for an extra 10 points this round, we had the option to take a picture of our model showing which team she was on regarding Twilight. We get all 10 points no matter what it looks like, so I didn't spend too much time on it. x]
Plus, I don't really follow the whole Twilight thing, so this didn't really interest me... The only reason I actually chose Edward was because he was the only one I found CC for. XD

New Layout!

So I decided to change the name of my blog to Drew's Dorm, and it got a new link, too. :]
I hope you all like the new set up, I defnitely think it's less blinding! ;D
Let me know what you think! :D

Unbound & Explicit

So I entered round 5 for the Banner Competition on Unbound:

I basically just recolored my entry from SNTM and added the text. x]
Gotta love the creativity! ;D

And Lena, the awesomest person in the entire world, was kind enough to make shirts for the Explicit team! Here's my simself sporting his new look! :D
Thank you again, Lena! <333

Another Pearl Edit! :D

Another day, another location! I brought Trinity to the beach with a new 'do to get ready for the shoot. :]
Hopefully I like the shot this time. x]

The beach has some really pretty locations! <333

...and then, you know... some not so pretty ones. :P
She doesn't look too happy. XD

A family outing...
(I got bored waiting for sunset, if you didn't notice...)

I got a few shots in two different locations, both with horrible lighting. x]

Then I finally got a shot I was happy with! :)

So I edited in the pearls and - voilĂ ! I'm done! I know it's fairly simple, but I like it a lot more than my other picture. :3

1 Year Anniversary! :o

I can't believe it... I've officially had Dreamers and Simmers for one year as of today! O.O
Thanks for all of you who have listened to me ramble and stuff! It means a lot! <3
Also, I don't know if I ever told you this, but I absoultely hate the name I chose for this blog. x]

Assignment Fail x]

I entered my save to work on SNTM Assignment 2, and even though Marrissa isn't my model for that comp, I was still distracted by her. x]
Again, I got the death stare... I really don't think she likes being a model. O.O

But the glares calmed down and she was smiling. She looks so gorgeous when she's smiling! <333

Another pretty shot of her! :D

And here's Trinity, so she doesn't feel left out. XD
This is her assignment, after all...

Another smiling shot of Marrissa! <333

Getting distracted by horses... XD

And then I think my final product came out awful. x]
We had to show our model in a gown in a nature-like situation. And I'm just not liking my photo. Looks like I'll be trying again tomorrow! :|

The Art of Editing Assignment 2

So I joined a competition to help me improve with my editing skills, and for our second assignment, we had to cut our sim out and paste them on a background and apply a shadow. Both of which I already knew how to do. (Don't I sound cocky? :P) Next assignment though, we're going to start getting into the challenging stuff... So I've been warned. O.O
Anyways, we had a few restrictions this round.
1.) Our model had to be wearing formal wear.
2.) It must be a nature scene.
So here's the in game shot! (above)

And here's the final product! :]
It's not too bad, I think. I'm probably going to get points taken off for my shadow, because I had no idea which direction to put it in since no other objects had shadows that I saw. x]
But there's that overhanging rock in the background that has a shadow, now that I look at it...
