I found some nice pictures in a Swedish travel brochure from the 1930’s and I thought they should be in my game. There are 3 variations. These 2 are water-colours.
The third variation is smudgier than the others, in part because it is an oil but also because the original was lower resolution, I think. It’s not very noticeable in game, though.
The buddha & The winged victory of Samothrace are by Swedish painter/designer Ewald Dahlskog. The flamingos are nameless. 🙂
Ewald Dahlskog, slightly demonic hottie.
He & writer Paul Auster could be twins! At least related.
Ok, I’m done here. Oh, and a link would be good!:

There you go.
Yes, they are “just” paintings, but I’m well excited!
The first painting is “Landscape with a comet”, watercolour & ink by Ukrainian artist Heorhiy Narbut, 1910. (That would have been Halley’s comet, btw.)
The other paintings are watercolours by Dr. Edward Wilson from the British “Terra Nova” expedition to the South Pole in 1911. He and the rest of the party didn’t make it back from the expedition, but his paintings of the Antarctica are still hauntingly beautiful.
Base game mesh. I suppose you need at least patch 1.26. Comet is 650 simoleons and the Antarctica paintings are 500. They come as both package & sims3pack.
Now go decorate your little hearts out!
