Snug as a Bug

Snug a bug

So a lot of editing tweaks occurred in my picture today, nothing to the decor, more of a me situation. These are not faults with items or anything like that, this is just the length of arms, size of hands, twist of leg etc. You cannot cater to all animations or poses with mesh, and pose creators cannot cater to all attachments. Seeing as in the olden days it was paint on body clothing, and now we have sometimes inches of mesh to navigate.

I am also not a perfectionist, but more of a ‘ I want to play with PS ‘ person, I also had the fun of sharing screen with Mel today and learning a few things about tools that I was wary of in the past. No tutorials today though, there was no real consistency to what I did and tweaked etc, so it is just more of a HERE is an MP4 gif of the before and after, so you can get a sense of things that can be altered just a little further. The main things that I had to fix was the hands, and the shirt. The shirt was more me finding it a need, than it actually really being one, more so because of the angle in which I took the picture.

The shirt is a boyfriend shirt by NYU that comes in solid colours, or these fabulous and very masculine stripes. I love this kind of shirt on guys, and if you can steal one for yourself, even better. I am wearing it over leggings that are appliers, as that gives you more wiggle room when layering with Mesh…it also helped them fit snuggly (with only small alpha help) into these amazing boots by Mutresse that are at this current round of Collabor88.

The boots have separate faces for all elements to the boots, so when I decided – based on the options that I got in this gorgeous hat hair by Exile – that I was going grey and yellow, it was a simple matter of turning parts of the boots grey, and then accenting with yellow, PERFECT! I love when items come together that way, and it was from two separate events, so even more fun.

The other two events situation, is in the form of the Cheeky Pea items I am lounging around amongst. This Ashby Garden Snug build is a cozy mountain hut like item, truly gorgeous, and suited my colour mood. Then the addition of some pieces from another release, the Hugge Set lent me elements in the form of rugs, ottoman and artwork…the frames being the same wood as the build just made it all WINNING!

For the sit, I was able to find an older group gift by oOo studio that was also an ottoman, the poses were already unpacked for you, because Oleanka is smart like that,  and Whimsy and I always unpack props and use the poses in our stands for other uses – it is a really good thing to do, because a tobbogan sit can be a stool sit, or a lay on towel at beach lay can be a lay on rug in living room because all the seats are taken lay. We also do the same thing with Ao’s putting them in our VR Studio posestand so that we can use them as poses, slowing down animations or just getting a true candid shot.

I hope you like the look, and I hope you looked at the before and after GIF and maybe got motivated to try more things in PS or Gimp if you like taking pics.

    Lovely post, Sasy. I’m always fiddling with hands in shot…. they rarely sit as the posemaker originally wanted. I wear SLINK large size which suits the rest of my shape but rarely the poses. That’s what made me learn advanced paintshop in the first place 🙂
