Away from keyboard

Away - till end March.
Fly me to the moon...

I will be away from 9th March and whilst the plan is to be back for the 22nd of March, things are a little uncertain as they are. Whilst I may not be able to offer customer support as well as I would like, please bear with me and I'll make sure to get back to you as soon as I can.

It may be more efficient to use the webform on this blog to get in touch.

Meanwhile , I'm sending out cosmic well wishes to one and all. See you soon!

New Stuff : 8LI Mesh Store Prefabs

I enjoy creating textures and whilst making my new store itself, I decided to make a few variations and offer them up for purchase. It's hard to find a good quality low LI building. But now you have atleast 6 new ones!

How to take pictures in Linden water

I've been giving my Clown fish kit a texture overhaul - remapping the model from scratch, and giving it some fresh colours

After much feed back, I've decided to change the types of kits on offer. The professional range include sculpt maps and scripts for builders. A home edition range is also in the pipeworks. These will simply contain prefabs without needing to be built.

I also wanted to show you how to take images like the product shot I did for the clownfish kit which is taken as is in linden water without retouching. I think un-retouched photos are important in product shots for honesty. So here's how I did mine.

I created a gradated background of the ocean floor in perspective. This is an alpha that I then textured a prim with. You can see that the general tone of the photo from this distance is hued. This is because this shot is set in Linden water.
In closeup , this background is particularly effective for introducing distance
The end product is this - without being retouched at all, you have a nice underwater pic of your fishys!

It's a balancing act!

A balancing act
My little bit 'O territory

So I've finally set up my store in world and home-ified a little corner of it with some of my favourite things from TMD and various Gachas. TMD is still going by the way and moved to bigger better premises .   I've finally moved in too! and baring the odds and ends I have yet to feed into the CasperVend Database, my shop inventory is not too shambolic!
