Fun with Scarecrows!

I can not believe that Thane got all of this detail into a 1 prim / 1 LI sculpted scarecrow, and Im super pleased with how they textured.

If you are a member of the Builders Brewery, the straight armed scarecrow set is a gift to group members at the Brewery Halloween Gift Exchange until 31 October.  If you aren’t a member or don’t like searching, clicky on the image to nab it on marketplace.

All images are links to the marketplace, or come see them at the shop!

There is also a version with bent arms, and a fatpack of all of them. The custom textures are interchangeable between the two sculpts, or use the textures as a template to make your own.

Inky Accident

This set was made with role play in mind. The spilled ink pot is 1 prim and the scroll is another. The texture for the scroll is just a simple texture, so other textures can definitely be used. Of course each piece can be used separately.

I adore this new duckling. He is the vanguard for the rest of his family, who have not been made yet. But in the meantime his adorable 1-prim duckiness can grace any scene needing small waterfowl:

 

This Devil’s Dance set includes both the regular sculpt and a nanno sculpt in case you need tiny dancing devils. Each devil is 2 prims (eyes are a separate sculpt) and 1 custom body texture – color and shiny the eyes as you like.

Thane made this clawed hand for a throne, and indeed it makes a lovely claw throne. But I think it wild also be good for a lamp, or for a multitude of gothic decor where you need a demon or dragon claw accent. This comes with 3 textures – one seamless grey scales, and a custom red with claws and a custom grey with claws (grey textures are good for tinting in world). But I imagine other textures would be interesting as well.

The full perm mini hunt #6 is on from Sept 27 to Oct 8. If you like floating islands, you want my gifty – that’s all I’m sayin’

I’m back from our trip about UK and Ireland! And I have a bazillion photos to process into textures! But I did these Celtic crosses first because I love them.  These are nice clean alpha textures with lovely detailing and marks of age. Some added 3d effects make them quite realistic in-world.

And I finally put my autumn leaf pathway textures up on market – I’d used these for last years Samhain event, they worked very well for pathways and splashes of color.

And new sitting kitties! We’d had a number of requests for sitting blinky cats without hats. So now we have a tabby and black kitty – sitting up alertly and blinking.

I just made a new mesh bird house with plants. All in 2 prims! And I decided to put it up for sale at Creators Village at Builders Brewery. They are having a sidewalk sale and I nabbed a table.  Builders Brewery has given me a lot – and I’ve learned so much from there. And most of my friends come from there – and now I even teach there! I make my students say “Rawr” when they are ready to continue… So anyway, I thought it would be fun to nab a table for the sidewalk sale. And a cut of my proceeds to go the Brewery – so win win!

The kit comes with the full perm mesh object. Which is 2 PE as delivered – and you can attach a small phantom prim as root and it will still be 2 prims AND have your name on the build. Add it to a build – add birdsong, add fluff – have fun! I’ve included some weathered wood textures, a grass with white flowers you can tint and an animated grass texture with script. You can have 5 different textures on the bird house and 3 different plant or grass textures – so go wild!

My table o’ stuff is at http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Builders%20Resource/150/29/22 where you can come see it in the pixels.

Ive put this new fun meshy bird house for sale at 25% off or 375L  – but only until 9 August. The sidewalk  sale ends on August 9, and then I will put this for sale at my shop and marketplace and the price will be 500L

Oh my my. I have recently achieved a long held dream of mine. Low prim animated plants!!

I love my sculpty plants, but the whole of a sculpt is 1 face – so not good for a proper animation. You can animate on the faces of prims – but to make a field that is hardly low prim then. But mesh! You can define faces on mesh and animate them!

So check this out (click picture to see in marketplace):

I know I know – it looks sort of simplistic in the ad. But that’s the point! It IS simple. There are 4 faces: ground cover and 3 plant forms up above. There are helper faces below the field to help you texture the faces above. You can put whatever texture you like on any of these faces, or a totally clear texture to make it disappear!! So you can have plants in dirt, grasses in sand, rushes in water, 3 flowers and no ground cover – the possibilities are endless!!

But wait – there’s more!! You can animate a face. I have included 4 textures for animating (16 grass images on one picture, each slightly different). Two types of movement, colored or desaturated. And several scripts for different faces.

I made the grass textures included here to go with my DBS meadow grass with flowers set, but grass goes with many many plants.  Or put your favorite water or mud on the ground face and animate that! Go super realistic or crazy wild surreal!!

Dagmar Klaar made a short video to show this motion:

And it looks very pretty in world:

All this plus instructions, scripts, textures & examples will make a 1 prim field at 8 x 8 x 2.5. AND – it will still be 1 prim if you add a small prim of your own!! Which means your name will show as the creator. But please – make a build and do not simply sell a copy of my example.

Come see it in-world  – that’s where it looks best!

Wow – work is just killing me and its all I can do to get stuff made, let alone package it! Here is the latest pile of new stuff. Clicky on the images to see the marketplace link and more pictures. The market place links to see the item in SL actually do work 🙂

5 Tree Grove in 2 prims

This grouping of trees allows a big impact in just two prims. A new foliage and bark texture are included, but many other textures will work. And the 5 trunks alone would make a neat effect for a spooky or desolate look.

Wall vine sculpt set

Add some 3D visual interest to your walls or fences. This set includes one sculpt for against the wall, and one to top the wall. A texture is included, but again – most foliage textures with a good alpha border will work.

3 Prim Wishing Well kit

Yep – this was a hunt gifty. But if you missed it – here it is! Plus this version has full perm sculpts. These sculpts would work for a variety of other things – rocky well wall, roof with axle and handle, and flower patch. There are included textures, and the wood and flowers are white so you can add a bit of tint. But lots of other textures would work too.

Rockwork Sculpts – 3 maps & 2 textures

I made these as patios for hunt gifts and used them for the new shop area – and people started asking for them. These were designed for flooring with gaps and holes in the more rustic versions. Nice holes and gaps for water or dirt or plants or just plain holes. They would also work well as retaining walls and stuff.

*RH* & DBS Women in Love

Two gorgeous women sculpted by Thane Woodford of Raven’s heart sculpts. I gave em pretty textures. This is a 1 prim sculpt you can use for celebrations, as decor, or use a different texture to make garden statuary.

*RH* & DBS Man to Man

A handsome male couple in one prim. Thane sculpted them and I made the textures – but again they would also be very nice statuary as well. Or perfect as decor for a wedding or celebration.

New DBS stuff in New Stuffs section, on patio right by landing point.

Small sculpted sprout in a pot
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
http://slurl.com/secondlife/Milu/112/183/25

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.

I know I know! I’m not ready for it yet, but still, it comes… I can tell because all of a sudden I’m seeing a bunch of wreaths and garlands heading out to make new creations.

So besides the fun of  wreaths and holier wreaths, garland sets and straight garlands,  candles, trees and Christmas tree and wreath textures I have been busy texturing some of Thanes new sculpts.  Some of which are definitely holiday things and others that will also work year round.

First the candles with little clip holders – made to go on a Christmas tree, but will work in a lot of other places.  The candles & holders are one prim and sculpted so as to put the scripted or particle flame right on the wick – so any small flame will work. Six custom textures are included.

Next is a sweet little 1 prim winged angel. She was made to be a tree topper, but will work well in lots of places. Two textures are included – with a simplistic face, or without.

Other new things are the dream catchers, which are very nice for thematic decorating:

And sculpted feathers with a variety of textures:

Latest stuff that is useful for the season: pumpkins and cats! And not just any pumpkins or simple cats, nonono.

Check out this punkin set – not just a nifty 1 prim pumpkin with stem, but also 2 pumpkins of the same size in 1 prim, 2 pumpkins of different sizes in 1 prim and 6 different texture colors because I always get carried away with textures…

Sculpted Pumpkins

And the new kittys! Thane is back (yay!!) and within minutes of his arrival he uploaded this fun cat sculpt that I just fell in love with and had to start texturing right away. The body language! The funny hat! I made 3 different textures for these 1 prim cats with hats, and these black cats have the same blinky green eyes as the other black cats – so 3 prims all in all.

Thane and I have lots of joint projects out where he makes the sculpt and I do the texturing – you can tell our joint stuff by the two logos on the sign, and they are all named *RH* & DBS

Cats Wearing Hats

Thane Woodford is the owner of Raven’s Heart Sculpts.  He has a lovely shop at:

Thane has kindly made room for his friends at his shop as well, so come have a look see.
