Thane made this adorable sculpt set which was a joy to texture. Just the thing for a springtime addition to a greenhouse or windowsill garden.

Over in the *RH* & DBS Critter section – Running Hares!

Each hare is in a different action pose, ready to thunder across the landscape!

Trees! Trees have started taking over – so I have given them their own grove area

People have been asking about the patio sculpts Ive used here – so I stuffed em in a vendor crate right on the patio.

Ent Master!
In a striking pose, he is on a rock and looks like he is poised for action. 4 prims of customizableness, with included textures and a new viney foliage.

Tree Woman
She is crouched and looks very different from various angles.

DBS Hollow Log kit 

I’m super excited about this new log kit.

The log is lumpy with uneven edges, included are 4 custom textures that have bark outside and rotten wood inside. This also comes with the full perm sculpt map, an ambient occlusion (AO) map and a seamless bark texture in case you need lots of repeats on a really big log.

These logs are also available in InWorldz

Oh and, a handy dandy tutorial posted here on how to use shadow textures that come with sculpts.

DBS Daffodils set 7 textures

I also finally got off my lazy fuzzy butt and took some photos of pretty daffodils to make a set of them in different configurations.

Individual textures can be bought in my in-world shop in Second Life.

Last week Thane Woodford of Raven’s Heart Sculpts and I worked on some more trees. The trees below are also in available in InWorldz

*RH* & DBS Lady Heart Couple Tree

This is a really pretty tree with the trunk in the shape of a couple dancing.  It looks good from all angles and Thane really captured the joy of the couple dancing, while making it look very natural.

*RH* & DBS 2 prim Birch Trees

These new birch trees have a clump of interwoven trunks in 1 prim, with a custom foliage sculpt to fit, 4 seasons of foliage textures and a really nice birch bark texture by Beautiful Shamen of Amulet.

Yayy! I adore this hunt. Mandi Blanco is such a great hunt organizer, and just have a look at all the fun TextureMania 4 hunt giftys! To get started in the hunt go to the Love My Textures link on the first page – the blog also has hints posted.

I am super excited about my hunt gifty, I think its my favorite one yet. I always want to make something useful and fun, and this set just came together organically. Its a 3 prim wishing well set with 3 sculpt maps, and 3 textures made just for this hunt. But, any nice seamless wood will work on the roof sculpt, any seamless stone or brick texture will work on the well part, and any plant texture with a good clear alpha border will work on the plant sculpt.

This is one hunt I am definitely going to do  – its great fun to see what all the creators are doing and visit their shops. And I want that flamingo from S-Town!!
