  Decorative, Wall Art: Society 6 Prints
Posted by: maxon - 02-08-21, 11:50 PM - Forum: Buy Mode Objects - No Replies

I made this CC for the Christmas in July event 2021 at Garden of Shadows.  After I got done with making the present I made for Infinite Iterations as part of the event, I decided to make these pictures as a Stocking Stuffer because I was bashing out lots of textures for recolours anyway and how can one (or six) more pictures files hurt? I'd had the images hanging around for ages and I really like them.  

   

So, these are six prints made for the It Will Last Longer picture mesh from Thread and Sandpaper - I really like this mesh because of its nice clean lines.  

The prints themselves are from Society6 - something else I really like because of the lovely and interesting images you can see there.  I'd recommend a visit. The pictures are top-bottom, left-right: Sunflowers and Bee; Fox in Quiet Forest; Because the Ocean; World to See; Cat in Flower Garden; Cat in the Garden.

This is my entry for the Sim Pearls Wallpaper Makes the Room contest for June 2021.  The theme was 'retro' and, as that is a fairly flexible term these days, I decided to make a 30s style art deco fan wallpaper with a toning plaster wall to go with it.  Special features include the geometric crown design and the lush cream fan pattern.

   

As usual, when I designed the walls, I went through a number of other possibilities and also include here three other colour ways using the same crown and skirting.  All designs are based on Art Deco style fan patterns.  There is a green fan design with a green plaster wall, a silver fan design with black plaster wall and a gold fan design with dark blue plaster walls.

This is my entry for the Garden of Shadows Daisy Chain Event April 2021.  

My prompt was Shadow From the Past which made me think about past events and their effect on the present and future.  Old sins have long shadows...  However, that's a hard thing to mesh or retexture so I started thinking about the passing of time and ... timepieces.  I thought about wandering through a beautiful garden and finding a sundial marking the hours passing through the day.  So that's what I did.

First of all, I did some work on the garden sundial by SimArchitect over at MTS.  This was originally posted in 2008 and is a nice mesh though the textures are not so ... modern.  To be fair, it was made in the days when we didn't have such high quality video cards and screens and nobody then noticed the fuzzy textures quite so much.  

   

I did quite a bit of work on the mesh.  It was originally based on the giant knight statue (from OFB) and the textures for that are quite complicated AND there are four main textures in the original package which SimArchitect replaced with his own all still in one package.  So, I removed some unnecessary LIFO textures (which are huge) and thus dropped the file size considerably, adjusted the bounding mesh and, more involved, added a new recolourable subset so the gnomon texture can be changed in game and recoloured as well as the face of the sundial.  I also adjusted the price, making it a bit cheaper and changed the way the value drops after purchase.  I left the original base texture in place but extracted the original recolours (because, to be honest, I don't really want to keep them myself).  So I include here, a new version of the mesh file, the three original recolours (called now RC1, RC2 and RC3) and added three more recolours of the face of my own and also now, four recolours of the gnomon.

Two of the faces I like, I'm not so sure about the terracotta one - still you can delete that one yourself.

  Mozart Silver Damask Papers
Posted by: maxon - 12-04-21, 11:22 PM - Forum: Walls, Floors and Terrain Paints - No Replies

This is my entry for SimPearls' Wallpaper Makes the Room for April 2021.  The theme was Damask and for the contest I made two walls - the base Mozart Silver Damask* wallpaper and a nice pale pink plaster wall to go with it (the actual pink is rather paler than it seems in the main picture because the lighting I used brings it out).

But the set itself consists of 8 walls because I played around with the textures till I got the ones I wanted.  Some of the other combinations are also pleasing but you can only enter two into the contest.  There are two versions of the damask wall: one plain, one with a dado rail; there are two of the pink plaster as well - one with a dado rail the other plain; there are two grey plaster walls in the same format because I originally thought about being achingly tasteful and grey-on-grey is so refined (as you may know, that does not usually appeal to me) and finally there are two walls with a mix of the paper and the pink plaster with a dado rail separating the areas of the wall covering.
