Sometimes I do pile-ups, which are when you take someone elses picture that has added it to a pile up pool, and then make changes to it, and reupload it. I found that long ago, I was unable to do that kind of work to my own pics, because I was always worried about over editing. Things have changed a lot in blogging since then, but I definitely found it easier to think outside the box on other peoples images than my own. It helped me learn a lot more about photoshop, so I highly recommend it. If you search Pile Ups in Flickr, you will find pools of pictures you can play with. I suggest using a white background if you are submitting one, because if people are new to editing, green screen can be really hard and intimidating for some people.
Anyway today I kind of felt like editing a bit, and I had some great things to blog, so this time I decided to pile up my own picture – original here , which I guess doesn’t really count as a pile up, but as it was shot on white, and the background and floor is all hand made in PS, then I am making it the same. The fantastic chair is from Tableau Vivant and part of this months Collabor88 Birthday Celebration edition. There is also a Stag version, but the bunny just had an adorable and sexy look to it. It also has a HUD option so that you can change the textures on the cushion and the wood.
The clothing I am wearing is a mix of old and new. The old being the leather bustier from Ison, it is more of a bodysuit than bustier, but I really find it a great go to for system layer clothing when looking for something like that. The shorts are the new, and oh my goodness so adorable and pin up worthy. The shorts are by Tres Blah and also a part of C88. I went with the red, because it is such a great colour red, and went so well with the bows on the backs of my stockings, as well as the great Ingenue shoes that are add ons for the Slink feet in the medium height. The stockings are also appliers add on controlled for the feet, and are my first set of stockings for Flair – also all hand drawn.
I went over to Mother Goose’s the other day and was looking to see if they were doing appliers, and while there about 5 lucky boards had S’s, Not able to resist such a great thing, the skin I am wearing today is one of them, and so adorable. I was able to use the Adam n Eve appliers for the hands and feet, and while not perfect match, with some editing it was fine, but if wearing them around just a few bangles would work to hide any seams. I could have just tinted some, but wanted to wear my nails.
I am excited for the next Slink update, because they will be all in one combined avatar enhanced attributes but with the ability to still tint.
