Default A male African American teen
Hi, I'm working on this guy (doesn't have a name yet). He's an African American teenager, and I need to know if I'm going in the right direction with his facial features. So far I've taken a look at quite a few reference pictures. Thanks

Right direction for what/whom? What look are you going for? Tiger Woods? Magic Johnson? ???

I have never seen a black person with blue eyes. That is very rare.

I'm not really going for any specific person, at the moment he has different features from different reference images.
(I'll change the eye colour too)

I suggest widening/enlarging his nose and thickening the lips. And fiddle with the nose mass slider too.

I think you have improved the width and general shape of the nose. The eye color change is also an improvement. The reference photos of black males you have shared show in some pics the mouth protruding past the nose as well as the bridge of the nose having a 45 degree angle-those would be the suggestions I would offer.

Also, is the skin you're using make the eyelid fold appear less obvious? I don't know if it's just my eyes or that I'm just viewing from my phone, his eyes look more Asian than African to me. The more seeable eyelid fold may finally nail it, I think .

Thanks for the feedback. I have modified the nose, lips, and eyes.

I like your second photos the best and only change I would make is make the nose less flat in profile.

??? It is still flat compared to almost everyone in real life. But this is your Sim and not supposed to be anyone in particular, so you can make this Sim however you want.

Well, I increased the nose depth and length, it looked different in CAS but nothing really changed in live mode.
There's a subtle difference but that's it.

This is your Sim/creation and you should make him however you want to make him.

I think at the moment he looks genuine while having enough uniqueness in his face.

I really don't think you need to widen the nose at all.... or thicken the lips.... these things come in many different shapes and sizes... he is plenty black already....
