‘Tis been a while, hasn’t it? Well nice to see you, see you in 3 months? Or perhaps sooner if the muses of ramblings visit me.
One of those muses came to me and left me rather speechless, as a figure of speech. The muse I am talking about came to me in the form of an old battered bicycle. Now, being Dutch I have a thing for those peddling machines. When I grew up, a lot of kids were proudly showing off their brand new shiny bicycles. But they never held any kind of sway over me. I prefer mine old and with just enough rust to make them truly special.
His and Hers Bicycles from Nutmeg are once more a perfect release. The details both in design and textures are breathtaking.
Perhaps you wonder about the lack of close-ups. Perhaps you wonder about the lack of black- and white, perhaps, perhaps. After having discarded numerous shots I taken, tore down sets for this picture that could have easily doubled as a sim build and eventually found ‘it’ in this simple scene.
A deck that has seen better times, a small boat that is barely floating with beautiful rotted wood, the right pose (part of the bicycle) and here we are. A picture.
About the deck, an item I remember waiting rather impatiently for, a release from Alex Bader – Skye (see the deck in-world here on the Skye Sim.) is yet another gem that is perfect. Low LI, high LoD and for once not the rather dull brownish colours but a happy mismatch of said colours and varieties of wear and tear. Perfect.
I suck at landscaping Mostly because I am very impatient and to properly landscape takes time. I am more of the wham, bam, thank you erm… deck? and get on with it.
Now you have your homework, do yourself a favour and check these items out. It’s worth it. Just follow the breadcrumbs (aka clickety-click on the links and off you go).
