Eyes

Eyes 2

Four very different sets of eyes, each with its strengths.  What I find interesting:

How the colors of the eyes lighten and darken across the surface of the eye.  The first, for example, has a lot of natural irregularity in color saturation, as you’d see in the RL Version.  The last has a dramatic transition from dark to light from the left side of the iris to the right — this gives the eye a lot of impact.

Color.  Green?  Amber?  A true hazel, with gold in the center radiating out to a greenish color?  Is the color soft or crisp, delicately shaded or sharply delineated?

Subtle detail.  How well defined is the › Continue reading

Freckleface at the Vanity Universe Skin Fair 2009

This post has been overdue.  I’ve had my own outside factors, and when I was able to take pictures in-world again, controversy reared its ugly head.  I am neither judge nor jury, so I will go ahead with the comprehensive post as I had planned.  For the record, I do not condone any illegal sourcing of images.  I strongly encourage you to study details carefully, and make your own decisions.

Frankenfeet

So, first things first.  I strongly believe in protecting intellectual property rights.  I’ve chosen to participate in Step Up and Achariya’s project.

Now, on to the blog post at hand.  I was planning this outfit for Halloween, but computer problems prevented me from doing so.  Fortunately, every day is Halloween in SL, where we don’t need an excuse to dress up in a costume.

This look started with the frankenfeet Siddean Munro of SLink sent to me.  They’re absolutely hilarious, and the best part is that I don’t have to worry about matching the feet to my skin!  I wasn’t sure what to do with them, until I remembered the Victorian Lace Nightgown from Studio Sidhe I’d seen on Plurk a while back.  I shortened the skirt a bit to show off the feet, and it’s perfect, don’t you think?  The detail on the bodice is really lovely, and the prim buttons are a nice touch.
