The last three of these have all been female characters, but I don't want to give you the impression I only make female characters on the Sims. Though actually I do make a much greater percentage of female characters I think than male ones. I don't know, making men just seems kind of boring. Your choices about the clothes and hair are a lot fewer (I mean there are only so many variations of suits and T-shirts), plus most men don't wear makeup. So you're a bit limited in what you can do. And really when you look at hairstyles to download for men, most look better suited for women, so unless you're making anime dudes they don't work so well.
Anyway, all that said I do have some male characters. I actually put this one in my fake movie trailer post, which you may or may not remember from the last Wednesday of August. This is Detective Steve Fischer from my novel Chance of a Lifetime.
One of the biggest challenges in the Sims is to make middle-aged people. I mean you can make a guy who's 20-something or 70-something but it's hard to make a guy who looks 50. There are a few add-ons with graying hair but they aren't great, so I just took regular brown hair and spray-painted a little gray that isn't extremely noticeable. I also spray-painted the whiskers to add the gray in.
You can't see it in this picture but Steve's suit has a police badge on his hip. It's an FBI badge technically, but whatever. A badge is a badge to me. Here's a better look at it:
It's always fun then to see what Steve looks like after almost dying and being injected with an experimental drug:
So there, I got a female one in here too. Fooled you!
