Okay now i am confused.
I have this from when i made the spreadsheet for Grandmaster where this was written to me, if we where aware of this.
"In Australia, midday is 12:00pm, and midnight is 12:00am"
That is the same as in the US, I don't know why you would specify it for Australia. I'm pretty sure everywhere in the world it becomes PM as soon as it hits 12 noon. 11:59 am, 12:00 pm, 12:01 pm.

One of my more respectable efforts in the last few years. I love painting in the Sims. :) Frank Frazetta managed 43 portraits with the top 10 worth 51,918.

51,918 X 1.43 = 74,242

ohh, sorry I thought that it ended at midday... well no worries it's only the difference of one painting and I'm happy with my score anyway.
Sorry to cause all the confusion  ::)

Woah, Metro, I'm looking forward to hearing how you managed to get so many portraits done!

Same here! I wonder how anyone managed to get so many! Now that I think about it I should have done something else rather than what I did (not saying until after the challenge is done), but even still I don't think that would've increased the portrait count by that much... Sometimes I feel like my score is so low that I had to cut the challenge early, but no.
Amazing how many people can get in that time though!

Top 10 paintings: 47,483
Number of paintings: 37 (multiplier = 1.37)

Total score: 47,483 x 1.37 = 65,051

I can't wait to find out how to got more portraits done in this 4 week challenge. I think with better planning in the first week, I could have managed a couple of more portraits, but I am happy with my results.

Wow this seems like a challenge I might actually be able to complete.  ;D

Took the words right out of my mouth. I love painting portraits of Sims and the restrictions don't seem hard. It might be something I can do while multitasking Wizard101 sessions. ^_^
I play The Sims 4 for fun, so I don't care if I never end up being interviewed for the Dynasty Hall of Fame; people who play for keeps burn out too easily and don't enjoy playing the games, so I am going to not sweat the details.

Hi everyone! This is my first official challenge and incidentally also my first post. I think I lost the plot towards the end and my plan flew out the window (as usual, Sim art imitating life!) I'm really impressed with other people's scores, I'm looking forward to learning a few tips after the challenge closes :)

Top 10 portraits: 44547
Total number of portraits: 21
