This one is for HP@MTS. Thanks for reminding about this guy! I loved him in "The White Queen", but hadn't put a name to his face. Once I figured out who you were talking about, I knew I had to make a sim version.

Misc: Changing Face "Vintage"

It's that time again. For this round of Changing Face, the theme was "Vintage". So I was thinking something a little bit mod, maybe vaguely "Twiggy"-ish...? Anyway, as usual, I took way more pictures than I needed. So I thought I would share some of the rest.

Here is the one I used for the contest:

Changing Face - 2013-11-18 - Vintage_01

And here are a few more:

Changing Face - 2013-11-18 - Vintage_03 Changing Face - 2013-11-18 - Vintage_04
Changing Face - 2013-11-18 - Vintage_10 Changing Face - 2013-11-18 - Vintage_12

And for the full set, you can check out the slideshow.

CC Used: * The mod dress is from Lucky Palms and the pixie haircut is from Dragon valley.

Misc: Picture Perfect 5 "Lazy Days"

Another periodic contest I enter is called "Picture Perfect". Basically, the host of the contest describes what they are looking for and you have to present 3 pictures based on your interpretation of the theme. Generally this has been interior design, but theoretically it could be landscaping or other things. This round was called "Lazy Days" and the host was looking for rooms to lounge about in - recreation rooms, libraries, lounges. So, here is my entry, the {Wo}man Cave. The first 3 photos were my entry, but as usual, I end up taking too many. Haha!

EDIT: Apparently the embedded slideshow doesn't show up for some people (ipad/phone users). So here is the link to the slideshow.

Misc: New Avatar Pictures

I join in a bi-monthly avatar contest called, "Changing Face". Every two weeks, the hosts post a theme and you have to create a photograph of your avatar using that theme. This cycle's theme was "Avant-garde". Here is what I came up with using my avatar, Kamilla Savage. The first photo is the one one I used as my entry. The other two were just for fun.

Maxwell Bauer - Covershot

Biography

Maxwell Bauer, of the Bridgeport Bauers, is a bookish young man with a natural talent for computers. He has an almost archaic sense of manners that were impressed upon him during his numerous visits with his Grandmother, Glorianna, at her summer estate in the islands. The only thing Glorianna values more than good manners is a thirst for learning - another trait she impressed on her grandson. During those summer visits, Maxwell also spent a great deal of time shadowing his Grandmother's handyman, Gerald. Gerald had an almost unnatural gift for fixing anything and everything and was more than happy to pass on much of his skills to his employer's grandson.

I started this sim while Season 1 of "Hannibal" was still airing. However, something went terribly wrong and I "broke" his face. I had no choice but to start him over. In the long run, it was probably for the best. This version ended up being much better.

Poses: Casual Male

This set started out as a couple of poses that I planned to use for photographing my next 2 celebrity look-alike sims, but I got a bit carried away. Somehow I don't think anyone will mind the extra poses! So enjoy this extra-big set of casual poses for your manly sims.

Oh, and I forgot to mention that all of these poses were inspired by the real life counterparts to the sims modeling them (Mads Mikkelsen and Jim Caviezel). Some liberties were taken with the poses, but they are pretty close to ones you might see if you go looking for pictures of these 2 guys. Such drudgery the research was! The lengths I go for you guys! Haha!

Hmmm... I don't know what happened here. I uploaded this fellow back in April, but for some reason I never added him to my blog. I created him as part of a series of sims I made specifically for modeling my poses and then promptly never used him for that purpose! Nor have I uploaded any of the others in the series. Haha! What can I say? I get sidetracked easily. Anyway, you may have already seen this guy at MTS. If you haven't seen him, enjoy!

I originally made this sim for a friend of mine at TS3. She doesn't use CC, so the original version didn't have any. But it bugged me no end that I couldn't give him his mole and fix his chin/jaw. And that lead to him needing new skin, and eyes, and... and... So here you go. Version #2...

NOTE: I inadvertently left of the links for slides I used on this guy (and I used a few!) Sorry about that. They have been added below.

Poses: Nonchalant

There are so many puffed-up / preening / macho-bs poses out there. Sometimes you just want a dude posing like a regular dude - just hanging around, casual-like. That's what drove me to make these poses (that and I needed 'em for photographing a Sim I'm working on).

Hey all! If you linked to my site using the blog button over there on the right hand menu, please update your image link! I recently switched from Photobucket to flikr because I keep going over PB's monthly bandwidth usage limit. (It's only the 12th and I've already used over 50%.) It would really help me out if you update your link! Thanks!

You may be noticing most all of my pictures are now "broken" links. Thank you Photobucket! And I should say Thank YOU! With the recent influx of traffic this site has been experiencing, my bandwidth usage on PB has increased. So much so that they temporarily blacked out my account. It will be sorted out very soon. I will be moving to flikr, but that is going to take a while. Meanwhile, sorry for the broken image links. The black-out will be lifted at the first of the month. Again - THANK YOU!

Just a little heads up for people who make poses and use OrangeMitten's Tutorials and A's ClipTool plugin for Blender. Their original site is gone.  Quoted from a post made by A on Simlogical:
"Sorry about that, my fault entirely.  I did something really stupid, and managed to recover some of it and recreate it at a new URL:
http://sims3cliptool.wordpress.com "
I know I panicked a little bit when I discovered their site had gone missing, so I thought I would help spread the word about the new location.  I've updated the link on my sidebar.

There is no "theme" per se, other than that they were all made for use on my simified version of Antony Starr.

* It would have been nice if the people that voted "other" had left a comment mentioning what that might be.

So... That gives me a sense of what at least a tiny corner of the pose-consuming market has a hankering for. Of course, I will still probably do whatever random thought pops into my head at the moment, but it's nice to have a sense of what others might be needing. Thanks to all of those who participated!

Description: Recently, I hosted a little "Pose Giveaway" contest on a couple of communities I participate in. The first 10 people to post a reference picture would get their pose created. I ended up doing 13 poses for 11 "winners". "Counting" was apparently optional! Ha-ha! It's called "March Madness" because I originally planned to take most of March to complete the poses and "Madness" because taking requests can sometimes be "madness". As it turns out, I am no better at estimating schedules than I am at counting. I got the set done way in advance. (I had to dawdle a bit just so the calendar would actually say "March" when I released them! But.. *shhhh* don't tell anyone that!)

Misc: Pose Themes / Survey (Closed)

Over the past six months (or however long I've been making poses), I have started a bunch of different collections but never finished them. My mind wanders, what can I say? I've also collected tons of ideas for things I'd like to do. I'm more than happy going along making whatever suits me at the moment, but I'm curious as to what the pose-consuming public is craving.

You'll notice a little survey over on the right side of my blog. It's just a little list of things that I've either started or have a mind to work on eventually. Help me out and tick of the themes you'd be interested in seeing (you can select more than one). If there are other themes that the pose universe is lacking, drop me a comment.

Just to be clear - this is NOT an invitation for requests! I'm just looking to get a sense of what people might want to see. I'll probably still do whatever the heck seems interesting at the second... but you never know! ha-ha!

Finds: Old Fellow Ranch Poses

Today I'd like to share another "Find". It's actually not a new find (for me), but more of a re-acquaintance. It's a German site called Old Fellow Ranch. Apparently they moved to a new site and I finally found it again! Anyway they have *tons* of really well done horse poses. Clearly this person has spent a lot of time around hoses and it really shows in her work. Anyway, the site is well worth a look-see if you are in the market for horse poses. And what I like is they have a lot of western style poses.

Happy 20K Views!

Oh my golly gosh! I stopped in to do some administrivia on the site and I noticed that it's broken 20K views! I am well and truly flabbergasted. It was just a couple of months ago I was wondering if I'd ever hit the 2,000 mark. I'm guessing it's because of the custom poses because my other works never got nearly this much attention. So keep your eyes "peeled", there will be new poses coming very soon! Anyway, thanks for dropping in!

Finds: Decorator's Best Friend from Virtual Artisan

While you are waiting for me to get off my rear-end and upload something of my own... Check out this piece of awesomeness from Misukisu!

Virtual Artisan: Decorator's Best Friend: Move stuff whenever you want. No cheats, no OMSPs.

A question for you all!

Dear Sim-Loving Friends,

You may have noticed that my page has gone un-updated in a while. That is partly due to RL stuff and partly due to creative block.  Unfortunately the creative block continues insofar as building is concerned.

Right now my main creative outlet has been pose-making.  I realize that I haven't posted a new pose-pack since last October, but I have actually been hard at work on several new pose packs.  In fact, I have 3 new pose packs ready to go right now (and one of them I've had ready for about a month.)  What's the holdup, you ask?

Up to this point, I have always published my poses on ModTheSims.  Mainly this is just for the visibility they get there.  As you may (or may not) be aware, ModTheSims is doing "spring cleaning" (a little early/late being as it is still Winter/Summer depending on the hemisphere last I checked).   They are clearing out their upload queues and preparing for a mystery "update" to the uploading process. As such, they have temporarily stopped accepting new submissions. This started on January 15th (the day I was getting ready to upload a new pose pack.)

It is now February 17th (as of this posting) and still not indication of when they will be accepting new submissions. (I can guarantee you when they do start accepting them, they will be flooded with new stuff).  I now have 3 new pose packs completed and ready to go. My question to you all is this - Should I:
  1. Hold out until MTS is accepting new submissions, however long that might take.  (Keep in mind that under normal circumstances it took upwards of a week for MTS to accept/reject submissions in the past.  After they open their floodgates again, who knows how long it might take.)
  2. Post them here now.  Then later, when MTS is accepting submissions, upload them there.  If MTS asks for changes (and they do occasionally ask me to make changes), do so and update the post here as well.
  3. Post them here now.  Then upload them to MTS later.  If MTS asks for changes, politely decline and accept that they may be rejected.
  4. Post them here only.
  5. Other?
 Please vote in the poll in the sidebar or leave a comment letting me know what you think.  Or drop me a line through TS3/MTS/TSS/TS3CC.  I go by "k2m1too" on all four sites.

EDIT: Thanks to those that posted comments, voted or contacted me on other forums!  The consensus was to go ahead and post them here.  I may or may not upload to MTS once they start accepting uploads.  (We'll see...)  Anyway, thanks again and stay tuned - INCOMING!
