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.

Wow – so I boarded a ship on the 6th bound for New Zealand, but had to stay on till Australia for another week. I didn’t get the chance to post about these hunts before I left – but there’s still time!! Im in Melbourne right now, but flying home tomorrow.

Silk Road Hunt 3 – June 1-30

If the above link doesnt work (it keeps redirecting me to a .au site) try http://huntsl.wordpress.com/2012/05/05/silk-road-hunt-3/

One day left! I adore this hunt – my flight of fancy led me to imagine spice merchants bringing seeds, bulbs and seedlings home and carefully propagating them. I chose saffron because of its rarity and lovely flowers. Then turmeric because of its lovely golden dyes and the fact that it is sometimes used as a substitute for the costly saffron. Plus I think it makes a lovely plant.

Full Perm Hunt – Bon Voyage – June 14 to July 2

Follow the link to see the fun stuff!

I made a leetle leaf raft sculpty set, for floaty fun. As usual, I went a little nuts with options, but I think this set is great fun.  The hunt gifts on this hunt are for sale for 2L – and there’s lots of amazing builders stuff – only a couple days left so hurry!

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.

Tigger Genira of Tiggerworks has moved her shop to the most adorable parcel. It is a lovely cove on the mainland sim of  Sido, with the perfect elevation to make things a bit splashy.

And by pure random chance its just 2 sims over from my shop at Milu!

I honestly think this is Tigger’s best build yet – its lovely and rubbly with lots of surprises, and very interesting visuals. Just rambling around you will find striking vignettes and interesting uses of terrain, build, scripts and sounds.

Tig is working on a new ambient sounds effect, so what you hear is dependent on where you are and also the time of day.  And besides the fun steampunk rover follower, shes also got some random glowy sprites that follow people.

And yes – its also a shop – with builders supplies for sale. In fact, the bits to make what is on display here are almost all available. And of course, Miriam Donogal of TexWorks and I hopped right in and littered our stuff about as well.

So come and have a look at all the fun stuff and effects. Tig has been using this shop to test out her new stuff and effects, so it will be continuously changing.

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.

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.

Ok ok I survived the holidays, survived another trip across the Pacific and I’m back!

Two superfun awesome hunts this month The first is the incredibly popular Full Perm Mini Hunt. I really like this hunt because it always feels spontaneous, and Raindrop Lowbeam does a nice job of setting it all up. Plus full perm hunts for builders aren’t all that common. My gifty for this one is a set of rocky ring sculpts in several styles and roughness. The main idea for these came from the need for a fire pit, but these also make nice planters or landscape accents. Be useful for a rounded hearth as well.

The next hunt is the ever popular Steam the Hunt.  I did a tree back in Sept for this hunt that dropped gears, so in that theme I made a leetle bonsai tree in a pot that drops watch bits with a little tinkly noise. I know, I now – this hunt had an under the sea theme that I may seem to have not gone along with. But my thought was that the hunters will get all of these wild underwater domiciles and vehicles and might just want a bit of home while they down there in the abyss. Thats my story and I’m sticking to it!

Up All Night Hunt  November 1-30

If you haven’t participated in this hunt yet, I highly recommend it. There are some very nice builders supplies as hunt gifts (the theme was “anything but holiday stuff!!). My gifty is a new exploration for me – sounds! I made a bunch of loop-able sounds: water trickles, burbles, gurgles, some with machine hums and one of an electric motor.

Couch Potato Hunt 2  Nov 15 – Dec 15

This is a fun hunt for furniture, and one that I love because I get to play builder for a bit. The theme is to “Say it with Song”.  So my song choice is Otis Redding’s Sitting at the Dock of the Bay because… Well just because it is! I love this song, I love docks, and below is a picture of Thane and I sitting on the dock of the bay, watching the tiiide roll away…

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:
