-Luc Barthelet - Maxis/Sims GM- on responding to the prepro backyard living and bedroom concept progress images and the greater ehedman flickr account images.

"This set of images — for the context enlightenment —, along with some other of equal importance, comes from Eric Hedman's personal website; Even if the name doesn't flag us a sign of resemblance at first, that man was the key element when it comes to giving to the Sims' universe the clever and exquisite material aesthetics that we know so well, as we notice thru the repertory of

hundredssssssssssssssss of concept arts he's personally composed for the elements of almost all the expansion packs, it seems... ah, and the base game, too. It's also mentioned there in the 100th day trivia easter egg thingey that he was the mastermind behind the game's animations, to the point that even those almost-photorealistic-captured-by-movement recordings seemed amateur next to the ones he manually engineered!

Ah!, if you wanna check yourself the complete bunches of concepty media Mr. Hedman has published (not solely Sims stuff, it is worthy mentioning), pop your popcorns, straighten your duvet and start your researching from HERE — Thanks again!"
