Outtake from chapter 52

Once again, I'm going to apologize for the lateness of this chapter. I'm trying to work on chapter 53, but right now I am so very tired.  

I have many excuses, but my biggest one is that I'm dating again.  It's actually been pretty fun and I'm kind of excited about it. I have a whole dating diary thing on my personal LJ if you're curious (the dating entries are f-locked, though simmers here are more than welcome, 'cause jeebus knows, advice is good  :D ).

Ahem. Anyway, this week I'd also like to start working on Auberon again. Unfortunately, I cannot find my Late Night disk and I'm too tired to look for it.  But I still want to finish this too! :)

Thank you, everyone for all the comments and notes on the chapter. It still means a lot that you're still reading. *hugs*

Just to give you an idea of what's coming up...

Chapter 48 Teaser (cropped for spoilers :p), because I know there have been a few people out there that ship this. And what the heck, it's Valentine's Day!

right behind the cut... )

You could file this under stuff I probably spent way too much time on. >_<

Willows Picture Wall

The frames are from Thread and Sandpaper. This is the first time I've ever attempted to recolour a custom object. I can't believe I managed to do this without exploding my game! :D  

I had a little bit of fun posing out a family portrait for the Marlen family (last entry).  A few more in detail after the cut.

First of all, before I forget, Simsecret #20  from last week, thank you for the shout out :).  I'm cool that you don't read my story, if you've given it a try and didn't enjoy it for whatever reason.  Like I said in the comments, I don't hold that against anyone. I still like to participate and enjoy people's sim offerings (stories, CC, w/e)  as much as I can. At least we agree that I am indeed awesome! ;)    

Though seriously, if you had read my stuff but didn't like it for whatever reason (too boring? Subject matter not your thing? Me grammers iz awesful? Sims are ugly? Plumbbobs are showing?), I don't mind hearing about it.  And this is a great segue to our next topic.... ;) 

I posted my story up on the [ profile] simstorylibrary for posterity and for review. :D I want this story to be as fun for the readers as it is for me, so please be honest and let me know what's working for you or not. Link right here! There are quite a few stories going up now, so please do get your stories or your favourite stories up there!  (and pimp updates at [ profile] simstorytellers too of course!)

Last thing: Just to let you all know that I am working on Chapter 45, a real, live, freshly caught teaser after the cut!

1 little teaser up ahead... )

Ahem: Some fun notes!
Time's finally crept up on me and it is now my turn for the Simstoryteller Spotlight. If there is anything you'd like to interview me on, ask away and unless it's major spoilers, then I'll do my best to answer it. :) The Q&A is over here.   Thank you to those who've already asked a question. :D

Second of all, sim storytellers and readers need to check this new community out here: [ profile] simstorylibrary  . The premise is straightforward, all it needs is yooooooouuu! :D  I'll be posting my link there in a while and I would encourage you to post your stories and your story recommendations there too! :)

Wesley and Willow from this photoshoot. I didn't like this shot then, but looking it again I don't mind it. :)

I also have a teaser for Chapter 39. This scene was meant to go into 38, but after working that chapter out, I decided it didn't really belong there.

One teaser coming right up! )

I wouldn't blame anyone if they thought I forgot about him. ;)

I'm in a weird mood tonight so I'm sharing a teaser of sorts.

one pic this way )
simtopi: (Default)
Willow and Jasmine
Okay it's cold. Complain complain, I know. I'm not really ready for it though. I don't know where all this time has gone. 

I posed Jasmine and Willow out last week because I wanted a Holiday icon. Well, at least a wintery one. I swear there was a decorated tree behind them somewhere. :p 

I felt like I've been all over the place this past month, but it goes with the territory I suppose. I'm grateful for having some work, but I'm learning fast that I really need to start organizing my time better or else I tend to get all frazzled. And I hate having ideas for the next chapter but not being able to separate my head away from other stuff so I can work on it.

I think things will be slowing down somewhat over the next few weeks, with the holidays and all, so I am going to play Sims and catch up on my reading list. Maybe I'll even finally install TS3 on this laptop. :D
simtopi: (Default)
Except it doesn't look all that different. >_>

[ profile] spyroeldragon  found a skin blend set and eye edit by Leh ( post here ) so of course I had to try them. . 

4 PNGs behind the cut, I should probably be doing something more productive, blah blah blah )
simtopi: (Willow)
I was doing some set up for Chapter 33 tonight and I thought I'd do a small photoshoot  (not quite a teaser, this isn't a scene from the chapter).  

One more pic )
simtopi: (smile)
Well, how awesome is [ profile] simgaroop . She's pretty freaking awesome, if you ask me! I requested a recolour of Willow's hair and she provided! :D :D :D <--- smileys are not enough.

Naturally, the first thing I did was download it and try it out right away. :D Apologies for the cruddy quality of the pic, I'm at the bf's place and all I have is my laptop (sims-lite!).

[ profile] simgaroop continues to be awesome and had the whole hair spectrum covered too (mesh by Nouk included as well). I don't think she'll mind if I share it with you guys so I uploaded it to my mediafire: Download it here!
simtopi: (confused)

Jasmine: Um, hey. Adrian is hot but he's being kind of a dick right now. Help me out here? 

Poor girl. I've been too busy making her fight zombies, her grades kind of slipped. Oops.

I went over to their dorm to play around with their CC a little bit last night and found her moaning about something or the other when I discovered that this happened somehow. So just to shut her up offer some amends, I fullfilled one of her wants and let her throw a sports party. 

+25 pics, my plumbBobs are showing... )

Edit: I didn't want to spam my f-list with another post, but I just wanted to thank whoever posted #6 in Simsecrets tonight, and I can't remember if I thanked whoever posted the Jasmine love a couple of weeks ago, but just in case I didn't post it here, thank you for that as well. I always feel a little strange whenever I see anything up there because I know that comm is pretty heavy on the wankage too, but I can't help it, maybe I am a drama-llama. It doesn't mean I don't appreciate the nice secrets (for myself and nice secrets for other simmers too!), I really, really do, and you guys do make me feel happy for what I'm doing. :) I hope I can continue to live up to it for you.


I needed "snapshot" pics of Willow and Jasmine as teenagers for background elements an upcoming chapter. I did this fairly quickly late last night. I'm pretty happy with how they turned out so thought I'd share them here. :)
Jasmine and Willow

Again, playing around with different CC combinations.
Skintones by [ profile] engram_au and eye edits by [ profile] niloublue .

another teen Jasmine and Willow pic and a Teaser of sorts )
simtopi: (TS3)
So I think I had way too much fun tonight. :D

Marlens TS3


They probably aren't the greatest TS2 -> TS3 sims out there, but I don't think I did so badly with them.  I think they're a lot better than my last attempt , and it was fun creating them, even though I know I'll probably never play them in any real capacity.  I'll post a download link later when I figure out how to share them.   Downloads are now available at my site!
simtopi: (Willow smile)
I did a small happy dance when I saw that these glasses from TS3 had been converted for TS2 . And guess who I figured they'd be perfect for? :D

One pic, some ramble )

Also, for those inclined to share experiences, what TS3 slider hacks do you use? There's apparently a few out there.(?) I'm not all that interested in downloading Awesome mod at this point, but I have been disappointed with the base game limitations on the sliders. And is Delphy's helper monkey actually helpful or is it just as easy or better off doing everything myself?
simtopi: (Willow)
Now Linden is back, I decided to do a quick photoshoot of the siblings, since I don't really have one of them all together like this.

Linden, Willow, Rowan

I'm also working on a photo tutorial which will simplify some cinematography and storyboarding tips and tricks that I've learned over the years of being an animator.  There's already lots of stuff online, but hopefully i'll be able to give this the Sim point of view. :D   I don't know if it's needed or what not, but I'll write it out and see if it's useful to anyone. Please let me know if there's anything specific I should include in it. :)
