After getting myself a Unicorn Teeglepet at Fantasy Faire — which I love — I have a renewed energy to make Teegle textures! Last weekend I converted my Solstice Eyes to Teegle, and this week played around with the unicorn applier so it can add my glitter Sparkle horns (without affecting the fluff).
Photoshop-wise, the eyes take up a bit more of the canvas than Water Horse, and need to be rotated 90°. I always find it amusing when textures are not oriented the same way in SL as they are in Photoshop. For example, moving the eye up in Photoshop moves it to the left in SL. Imagine if we needed to do that while making body coats! Of course I have no idea if it was intentional by the creators, but I’ve noticed it in multiple brands.
The horns were pretty self-explanatory, but bigger than Water Horse’s so I needed to update my textures a little bit. I’m excited to finally add some new vendors to my Teegle shop!
Fantasy Faire 2019 is here! This is my first year being part of the Faire, so it’s been a crazy couple of weeks trying to finish everything I wanted to finish, plus decorate my shop space. I’m on the same sim that Jinx is sponsoring (Faireholm), which is a nice bonus! A handful of other horse creators also ended up there.
I’ve created 2 different items (1 in five colors), for a total of 6 vendors that have 100% of their sales going to Relay for Life! Some of my family members have been directly affected by cancer, so I wanted to have more than the minimum of 2 RFL vendors. For all bento and animesh Water Horses, I have a new Muted Mist body coat collection — inspired by Faireholm’s sun theme:
Then for Teegle, by request, I’ve converted my Literary Chalk tattoo over from Water Horse:
Visit my shop directly here! Then take a stroll around Faireholm (built by Kayle Matzerath), and take in all the Faire & creator amazingness that awaits you. I’m especially excited for the debut of Teegle’s new unicorn Teeglepet!
The Faire runs from today at 12 pm SLT until May 5th. For a complete list of all the events, sponsors, designers, and so on, visit Fantasy Faire’s official site!
The Water Horse sim underwent a huge renovation over the past few days, and it’s now open to the public again! It looks a lot better and more professional than it did, with separate buildings for the avatars, riding horses, and animesh horses (coming soon). Plus multiple riding rings and trails to explore. All creators’ shops are now in a big circle instead of streets, which should give everyone equal exposure and be easier to find. Speaking of which, my shop has a new landmark there — come visit and check out the redesign!
Added another creature to my texturing list — the Shadowfury dragon mod from Blue Pearl! The creator asked me a few weeks ago if I’d like to make some skins for her animals, and I of course said yes — and knew my first one would be the Shadowfury. The default skin is pretty much the same as the one in How to Train Your Dragon, so I wanted to completely depart from that and make something new (with scales). The result was a deep blackberry color I decided to name Dragonberry!
I also learned more about making appliers and scripting, and hope to incorporate that into my next releases (where I can). I plan to make more skins for Blue Pearl in the future — just need to decide which mod to do next 🙂
Introducing my first foray into non-horse territory (sort of) — the Jinx Centaur! I have to admit I wasn’t super into centaurs at first, but the Jinx version grew on me and now I’m wearing it everywhere haha 🙂 I especially appreciate it using 2 AOs (didn’t even know you could do that), so upper body movements are still unique.
So far I’ve fitted 2 of my existing Water Horse coats to the Centaur, Ivy Night and Leather & Petals, and I hope to be able to complete one more this week!
