    Visiting their new house construction site, Jim was pleased that Andie seemed happy with the position of her new room.
    "Yeah, Jen, I'm looking out of the window right now. I can see all the way down to your house and the river. It's gonna be awsome living here!"
    But her little sister Annie was not so happy because the house didn't seem to have any walls or anything.

    Andrea for YT Julie and Pure Hair Crazy used for both Andie and Annie (Annie made younger using Basic Child shape)
    From M5 Starter Bundle: M5, James, PH Classic, Town and Country (on all three characters), Easy Going Poses

    Is it bad if my brain fried on my first pull? I finally finished this and then I forgot to post it. I didn't think All Time Hair was going to work with that spooky looking woman but when you make it stand out all over the place it actually worked pretty well. (lol face here)

    I see I'm not quite so far behind on this thread as usual:
    hawkonthewing "Faces of the Self" - that's got a really dreamlike feel, weird but not too weird. (And thanks for your comments)
    Luci45 "Morning Gate" - another dreamlike one, like the misty feel
    "The Wonderful Light Harmonium" - I really love this one, something about the twilight-y feel but the bright ice cream colours works well
    ETA: Talking about the time of day, not the book/film franchise, to clarify ---^
    emsim "Lost Patrol" - scary! The unicycle scrubs up rather well, that's not the original texture is it?
    carola.ottosson "Daddy is home" - nice warm feel

    And for my next pull:
    819 = Starship Stingray
    747 = Pure Hair Wild
    602 = Desk Clocks
    686 = Briana

    Thanks, Luci45. I've was out of town for a week and just distracted playing with new shaders, etc. the rest of the time. I had a hard time getting over the mental block of sculpting tools. How are we ever going to judge this month? There will be hundreds or thousands of images to look through! You've already submitted some great ones.

    Thank you MelanieL. That actually is one of the textures that came with the unicycle. I think they called it "orange" - not sure where they came up with that. (Kidding!)

    I'm so far behind on commenting on everyone's renders that I don't know if I'll catch up. I'm really enjoying looking at what everyone's coming up with though.

    Tag: barbult #2
    Title: Personal Style
    Whew! Repainting my jeep every day to match my outfit is getting exhausting. I think I'll only wear pink and red from now on, so I can just leave the jeep this way. I kind of like it. It shows off my personal style!!

    So what's new?...
    Luci45 "A Room for the Night" - ooh, I think I stayed there once! Nicely done - I like the menace and the way they're looking at her as if she's the odd one.
    barbult "Mud Bog Slalom Flight" - well that's one way to use an obscure prop! I like the added birds, makes it look very real.
    "Personal Style" - you really crammed the detail into that one, even an oil puddle! It was fun looking for everything you mentioned, and I love the idea.
    "Gum?" - And here's another really good one. Another one already? Have you given up sleeping?!
    hawkonthewing "Delusions" - very striking, I love the lighting here

    And having done my first 6 entries, I'm on the 5-item pull:
    635 = A3 and H3 Shapes for Genesis
    346 = Footsteps Tool
    875 = Eastern Riding Wear
    40 = Basicwear for V4/A4/G4 and Elite
    273 = Malevolent Extravaganza 1 (= Castillo del Diablo, Venomous, Malvada for V4, Dark Haven, LB Briar Rose, FC Darktale Castle)
    Just my luck, my first draw of more than 4 items and I get not only a tool I've never really used (Footstpes - hope that works in DS4.5) but also a largeish bundle. That'll keep me busy.
