Whatcha Doin'? (Btw Ravyn's on Vacay so I'm holding down the Fae Faire Fort. I hope she has a good time she really needs it with some of the needless stress people give her on this game... =/)
So what have I been doing? Yes lots of building... Lately my main focus has been custom jobs. I'm working on a few things that had been expanding my skill and vocabulary when it comes to building... WOOT! You'll all see soon enough for I will advertise it in the Fae Faire Business Group. The person I'm building for is a really talented designer (it's a storefront btw), and this build I'm working on, I'm really, REALLY excited about this because it ain't Elven and it ain't Fae. Plus afterwards I have more customs I'll be working on too!
I changed my view on custom jobs... I want to try things that will push me as a designer. As I mentioned before I am really tired of Lord of the Rings
. I still love fantasy, but I'm starting to take a more whimsical storybook approach. I think I'm really starting to find my niche. I really love color and bold shapes and lines, you would see that in my pastel and charcoal work I do in real life if you ever saw it. Now I'm noticing it's starting to show up in my work in SL and I'm glad for that! I hate bland and washed out colors (things with no color), my personality is really starting to show in my work now here. Plus I'm finding that I can take people's wants and needs and twist and shape it to reflect what they want to achieve with the added bonus of incorporating my style.OK enough about me...
I wanted to also mention Hurricane Gustav... I have real life family there and second life family in Louisiana and I just hope you're all ok. I haven't seen some of my friends log into SL who I know that live in that area, and I just hope you're all safe, and doing well, and I really hope to see you guys soon! I'm sending happy thoughts and wishes to wherever you are!
Ok, that's it. Done my gabbing for today.
Thinking of all of you!
