La paint capacity in Les Sims allows you to paint pictures of different styles and quality levels. The more the painting skill is increased, the more difficult the paintings become and can sell for a fortune. A career as a painter will allow your Sim to awaken the Picasso within him.


Characteristics and career

  • Required for aspiration: Creativity - Exceptional painter
  • Matching stroke: Creativity
  • Mandatory for the following professions: Painter


Learning ability

You just have to buy a easel and let your Sims paint. As your capacity increases, you have new models at your disposal. You can always decide whether your Sim will paint a small ($ 50), medium ($ 75), or large ($ 100) canvas.

Sims can also use their emotions on their canvases ($ 100). When your Sim later goes to view these images, they may experience the same emotion. The skill of painting can also be increased with the help of books. Finally, when your Sim is inspired, this allows the paint capacity to increase more quickly.


Stages of the Paint ability

Earn money with your paintings

When your Sim is done creating a canvas, you will have several options:

  • you sell it to a collector
  • you sell it to an art gallery
  • you put it in your inventory
  • you display it in your house

You should know that you have several qualities of fabrics:

  • ok
  • good
  • excellent
  • masterpiece

When selling your canvas, the quality affects the price. You should know that selling a masterpiece will pay you big. But we must not neglect the sale of small canvases. The price may also differ depending on the mood and the nature of the canvas.


Canvas with state of mind

In addition to Skill-related Styles, your Sim can unlock Artworks that are related to their Mood. The canvas will cost your Sim $ 100. Here is the list of moods used to paint these canvases:

  • Confident
  • Enchanting
  • Player
  • Concentré (e)
  • Angry
  • Sad

Once painted and displayed, these canvases can release an aura that will be communicated to all Sims in the room. You just have to click on the canvas and choose "activate the emotional aura".


Teaching Another Sim to Paint

 To teach another Sim to paint, that Sim must be painting. Then click on your student and choose "teach". Your Sim will then encourage their student with wise advice and the student will earn skill points much faster.
