holiday?

So, I’m at my parents house in Canada, and I can only get Ragegast to work. For what it does, its pretty good, but its really hard to navigate when you are blind! The only graphic is the map. Oh well, I still managed to get my 60L weekend sales so I’m happy. I’ll have to unpack them when I get home. I’ve been gathering new ideas for new builds, but I’m still committed to finishing the Kinney loft for you guys. So excited about what the future holds for my building.

Loft/skybox/f*ckpad

Yeah, Android means I’ll definitely be updating my blog more often.

Anyone remember that show, Queer as Folk, that ran from 2000 – 2005?  Yeah, I liked the show for the content, and the plethora of hot guys to stare at (if men can oolge us, I intend on oogling right back). But my favourite thing, aside from Brian Kinney himself, was the loft he lived in.  It was stunning.  So I’m trying to replicate it.  Mine has a bit of an updated, darker edge to it, but I lusted over the floorplan and the furniture, and the awesome raised bed area for so long, that I decided that I must have it!  I researched it and I thing I’ve gotten it pretty bang on.   Very excited.

Yes my finger still hurts!

Till next time!

So, android is rad.

So now that I have a wp app on my phone, ill probably post a more constant stream of nonsense chattering.  Last night I viciously cut my finger…. on my PINKY TOENAIL! Instead of QQ-ing, I drew eyes above it and made a face. But its right on the side of the knuckle so every time time I bend my finger it pulls open, and hurts.  “Well, don’t bend your finger,” you may think, but it’s on my index finger… my INDEX finger.  So my creativity will be down.

I have made some earrings! Little crocheted. Voodoo/string dolls. Pain-painstakingly shadow-mapped with the shittiest program for sculpts EVER, 3ds max. Nothing lines up.  So after much tweaking and swearing, they’re done.  I’ll post a link to them in the marketplace when I get them listed.  I’m also making the dolls in real life, because I have 21 hours on a plane in my near future and they don’t require knitting needles or crochet hooks, because, you know, knitting needles are terrorists go-to weapon of choice.

Sculpties, sculpts, scultp maps, and tangents

I’m just going to use the word sculpts/sculpt-maps in this post, because i loathe the word sculpty.

So, in my quest to start up a prefab store I’ve been buying crapload of sculpt-maps.. I think my inventory has probably doubled over the last month with new shadow-maps, sculpt-maps, and sculpted preview prims. My favourite thing to buy as of late is land/treraform-ish sculpt-maps. Everyone builds flat houses – flat houses for flat land. To that I say NO! In RL, unless you live on the Prairies, or in Ticky-Takcy-Box-suburban-hell, your land is probably not flat. Flat sucks. Flat is le BORING. So now I’m building everything on teraformed bases. Hillsides, cliff-sides, dug into the ground, underground, around a cliff, little Islands, mountain tops, floating environments, etc.

hiatus much?

yeah so, I kind of disappeared for a bit. not cool but whatever.
I needed a break. I’m finally starting to get inspired again, and I finally want to create and explore again. I think I might start making a line of modular prefabs – rooms that you can slot together into a house/skybox/ hotel/ shop/ whatever however you want. I’ve made a bedroom that I really like, so I’ll just make some more bits and pieces and see where it goes.

WANTED

Wanted: A texture artist
I love building and making things, but i hate making textures. I hate it and loathe it with every fibre of my being. I don’t mind applying the textures to the models in external programs to make the shadow maps, i just hate making the initial textures.. i never know what to put on ceilings, i never know what to put on floors, i never know what to put on walls! someone help me! Id love to split profits with a talented texture artist. email me.

but definitely kudos to whoever put this together.. its amazing
Ill blog a bunch of it up when i get it all totally finished.

in other news, I have an interview seminar thing at MAC.. no not the makeup place.. the COMPUTER PLACE.. OMG id so die to work there. EEEE! (though id give my left leg to work at either mac…) Interesting how 2 of my favourite things are known widely by the same name.
