Sims can learn to paint by using the easel, drafting table, or sketchbook. They can also take a class at the school or college of art. If The Sims 3: Ambitions is installed, Sims can register as a self-employed Painter. As Sims advance in the Painting skill, the quality of the paintings also get better. There are 158 paintings available to paint. Each painting has minimum and maximum skill caps — Sims with low Painting skill cannot make a high-level painting, and vice versa. This means that once the Sim has advanced in the skill, they will no longer be able to paint unique low-level paintings. The value of the paintings varies, depending on many factors, including skill level, canvas size, painting quality, and the number of paintings a Sim has painted.
Despite having been in the wiki for two years, Icemandeaf started helping this wiki revamp majors article in February 2013. Reappearing in the year after, Icemandeaf began being more active by first making a number of fanons and involvement in template-making and community discussions. He soon became more and more active and gained notability around the community, and later entrusted to become an administrator. His hard work and involvement are a good example as one of the best editors in this Wiki. Congratulations, Icemandeaf!
