As an artist, your personal style is really important. That’s the exact take-away from EA’s recent announcement that The Sims 4 would be adding a puchaseable “Creator’s Pack” to the game. This special bundle includes over $170 in creative clothing, objects, and other items, which will act as a great way of getting into the artsy spirit.
Painting is one of The Sims ’ most popular hobbies. You can make your own custom paintings, and sell them for a neat profit, too. The main base game’s add-on packs are a good place to start — or you can try out all the famous painters that the game has to offer. You could even try painting your own original piece!
1/10. Sims 4 Stuff of Art
More art for your home! This cute little cupboard is the perfect piece to place next to a desk, table or any other flat surface. With three sets of brushes and three sets of crayons, you’ll be able to create endlessly unique art on your walls!
The canvases are §100, but if you go for the most expensive option, you can get a full set of utensils and whatnot for just §125 . Obviously, I’m not in the real-life art business—I just play one on TV. I do know that in reality, the paints alone would cost way more than that! But it’s to offset the fact that in The Sims, things aren’t as realistic.
2/10. Sims 4 Studio of Art
Admit it — your sims never have enough space to grow their art collections. Soloriya understands! That’s why they made this amazing set of decorative wall art, with adorable wall-mounted brushes, sketches and tables that are sure to bring tranquility and harmony to the room. Your sims will love the cute bunny and duck sketches — because who doesn’t love those little fuzzy animals?
3/10. Sims 4 Easel Paintings Default Replaced
Every once in a while we all need to bring a little change into our lives. Getting bored with the same paintings over and over again will do that to the most dedicated of art lovers. Thankfully, this mod from DaisyTighfield is here to save the day. It adds dozens of new paintings and replaces them throughout every home you’ll find in your game.
I love realism paintings. But who doesn’t? They’re easy to find, hard to create and, frankly, boring. So I decided to reinvent them! The new surrealism paintings are stranger than the originals — sometimes even bizarro-world strange — which makes them perfect for your Sims who have a pinch of the weird or a healthy dose of the bizarre. You won’t find these anywhere else!
4/10. Sims 4 Stuff of Young Artists Pack
This stuff pack includes a variety of decorative items to add a personal touch to your Sims’ home. With this pack, you’ll be able to create unique spaces for your kids that more accurately reflect their personalities. It’s easy to recolor the included items for different effects — try combining them with objects from other The Sims 4 stuff packs for even more decorating options!
This furniture set includes a desk, end table, desk lamp, floor lamp and a bed — All of them have brightly coloured dots on them, thanks to the artistic youngsters that own them. Sure, it makes for some weird décor choices , but let’s face it: kids get paint everywhere!
5/10. Sims 4 Artist Body Career
If you’re also interested in making a career out of painting bodies instead of canvases, you can now do that with the help of this mod. Your Sim won’t find success overnight, but will be able to climb the ranks by creating a portfolio of beautiful tattoos. With more people than ever showing their ink off in public, you might even want to consider adding a tattoo parlour to your startup.
It’s hard to resist calling out the modding community on this one! And it’s a good thing that EA has finally realized just how many people would love to be able to add their own homes to the game. I can’t wait for the update which will allow me to make my Sim City dream of home-ownership a reality!
6/10. Sims 4 Overalls Artist’s
I love the physical appearance of my Sim, but what’s even better are their traits and Aspirations Mods. I can always tell a lot about who they are and what they’re into by their personality. I can see this shine in the way my Sim looks — for example, there’s nothing cuter than my firefighter Sim wearing overalls. There are twenty different overalls available in this world, pairing different colors with different shades of denim.
7/10. Sims 4 Set of Watercolor
Do you remember your first brush with art? That feeling of holding a paintbrush in your hand, the color warm and inviting beneath its surface, the intoxicating fumes teasing your senses — do you remember? Whether you’re looking to fill your Sims with that itch for their first piece of original art or simply let them enjoy their favorite old paintings all over again, these relatively cheap items are perfect for those who are looking to find the artist within.
8/10. Sims 4 Easel Recolors
If you’ve ever had the pleasure of painting a room, you know what an annoyance it can be to have to keep getting up from your project in order to add paint. What a drag. Thankfully, now there’s EZPaintRack, a handy little mod that makes it easy to mix and match paints without ever having to get up from your easel.
9/10. Sims 4 Paradise Painter’s Clutter
The Sims 4 is an excellent game, and we all know it — I’m not just saying that because I wrote about it! There are just a few things that are missing, one of them being CC for painters. Luckily, some kind soul has converted the decorative items from The Sims 3 into CC for The Sims 4! Now your sims can have art studios filled with paints and brushes and canvases.
You’ve come home from a long day at work, and you’re looking forward to creating something new. Perhaps it’s a new painting; maybe a new song or a new mix tape? Whatever it is, you need a place to call your own where you can start churning out those paintings. Your bedroom isn’t cutting it (too many distractions) and the local coffee house is far too noisy. It’s time to start your own art studio!
10/10. Sims 4 Splattered Paint Jeans
You don’t need me to tell you that your Sim is into the arts- you can see it in everything they do. That being said, your Sim could also use a new pair of stylish, two-in-one gardening jeans. They’ll make it clear that your Sim will do anything for the arts, with a great look for spring!
