A hair-editing spree!

I have recently gotten into the world of hair editing - yes indeedy. They're not great, but they'll do. The Sim used is the latest Simmeh for Rexy's Shop Me Stunning competition. I didn't want to go ingame because it takes ages to load up. I didn't enter them in the comp because I can't change the background...sadface. Anyway, this was my first one:

I was pretty pleased with it seeing as it was my first edit and all. I posted it on the 'Shop me Stunning thread and Rexy said this:

It has a nice shape! watch the shine though, it's a bit too much. And I know it's tedious, but it could use some more strands, and they should come all the way out to the ends rather than stopping a little short. I would also try to add some strands around the edges so it's not quite so smooth! Hair isn't one big object, it's a bunch of tiny strands. Otherwise, I think you did great for your first time! 
So I was pretty pleased with that, and I realised that there was, in fact, too much shine and not enough strands. Therefore, last night I did this:

 Which, personally, I think is a lot better. The shine's so much more...shiny, and the strands are pretty good, even if I do say so myself. Notice the shading underneath her chin on the left side? Yup. I shaded.

However, this is the most realistically drawn hair I've ever done. I was trying out some brushes for GIMP I downloaded and decided I'd test out one for drawing hair. I think it looks great, but the shine isn't quite shiny enough. I love those pixies and clouds, and the sparklies on her dress. I do think I could've done more with that shine, though.

After a day of voting, Bellamy won the heir poll and will be the Houston girl to inherit the house and money. How will her life go? Will there be many bumps in the road? I'm sure you'll find out soon enough but for now, happy Simming!

Heir Poll!

Hooray! I'm so excited for this generation of The Neon Matriarchy, I have a really brilliant scheme - er, story - to do with whoever gets chosen to be the heiress. Here are the girls all aged up with MC:
