Paintings of the World

 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Paint as many paintings of different residents and landmarks as possible before time runs out. Just add up your ten most valuable paintings for your score.




Challenge Rules
  • Remember, the General Rules apply to all Tournament challenges. Exceptions may be noted below.
  • Create 1 Young Adult Sim. Any lifestate
  • You may also create one pet for your household.
  • You may not add to the household after entering Live Mode.
  • Your Sim can only have one easel and one digitalistic sketchpad on their home lot/inventory, and all Top Ten paintings must be done via 'Paint from Reference' at the easel/tablet, allowing them to paint pictures of their surrounding (unlocks at skill level 3).
  • All Top Ten paintings must be the large size and of different Sims and different landmarks — no cats or dogs.
  • If your Sim dies, then post your score. This means keeping a running list of ALL your paintings totals. Then take the top 10 highest and add them together for your total.

Scoring
When you reach Week 2, Day 7, 11:59 PM, pause your game and add up your 10 most valuable paintings and post your Top Ten score.

"all paintings must be done via 'Paint from Reference'"

Stupid question but is this all paintings once paint from reference is unlocked or just scoring paintings?
Any rules on what/ how to paint before reaching level 3 (I.e. do all early paintings need to be large like the scoring ones)?

Hi, Vesper. How's it going?

"all paintings must be done via 'Paint from Reference'"

Just the Top Ten paintings.

Any rules on what/ how to paint before reaching level 3 (I.e. do all early paintings need to be large like the scoring ones)?

No restrictions. I'll clarify the rules.

Glad to be back! Got a new PC for Xmas and it plays Sims 4 without crashing so am delighted to be able to participate again.

Thanks for your swift response. As it's been a while I may have lots of silly questions.

No worries. Ask away. Great to see you again. I am hoping the changes the team has made for the '23 season will bring more players back (and keep the current ones).

"All Top Ten paintings must be the large size and of different Sims and different landmarks" - does this mean each of the ten paintings must be done on a different lot? Or could I paint more than one painting per lot as long as I was doing portraits of different Sims each time?

To make sure -
the easel/sketchpad comes with me to the lot.  I paint while on the lot in question?

Paint as many paintings of different residents and landmarks as possible before time runs out. The title says it all, "Paintings of the World" More than one lot, one world,

Yes, both are portable now. They go in your inventory

Does this mean 10 different lots or just more than one?
Do you mean more than one world or within one world?

There are 22 worlds in the game, and within those worlds are at least 3-4 neighborhoods. You can find all kinds of landmarks/sims etc in each of those to paint from reference. Out of all those you have painted, the ones with the Top 10 values are the ones you turn in.

Different worlds are not an issue. Go by this rule...

All Top Ten paintings must be the large size and of different Sims and different landmarks — no cats or dogs.

I guess I will have a go at this challenge.  Looks like it would be fun.
Is it true that cannibals don't eat clowns because they taste funny?

Sorry, I am obviously being dense. I am still unsure of what location variety is required by the rules.
 From previous answers 10 sims painted in one location is not OK.
So does each painting need to include both a different landmark and a different sim? Or would a combo work? Say, three different sims in the park, the park fountain, six other locations?

No problem @Vesper
Each scored painting must be a unique Sim or unique Landmark. Unique Sims painted on the same lot is ok.
Hope this helps  :)
