Eclectic Whimsy

EclecticWhimsy

Seraphim feels she was both successful and unsuccessful with her latest project. She thoroughly enjoyed the several days of tinkering it took to create this scene, and she is equally pleased with the result…

EclecticWhimsy2

… however, it was her plan to then do the whole thing in one, eight shot shoot…

EclecticWhimsy3

… but she has made the whole scene so delightfully detail-rich…

EclecticWhimsy4

… that her eight-shot maximum…

EclecticWhimsy5

… barely got her in the front door…

EclecticWhimsy6

… before all the glorious detail ensnared her camera…

EclecticWhimsy7

… and she didn’t even complete shooting the first floor…

EclecticWhimsy8

… and there are two more to go!

New Project

NewProj

Seraphim is working on her next ‘still life’… her most ambitious, yet. This one involves an entire, 3-floor building! Initially, when Seri first started doing these ‘still life’ images, she was inspired by the works of people like Alexa, whose fabulous, single-shot tableaus she really admired, so she was trying to do something similar, but… this is Seri we are talking about…

NewProj2

… the girl LOVES serial imagery, she simply couldn’t contain herself within the single-picture format. Now, with this latest work, she has found she is seriously stretching the initial format parameters…

NewProj3

… this latest work is going to be more like a single-shot camera pan, than a single shot image. Seri is very much enjoying creating these works, and hopes you are enjoying seeing them (:

Drune: East of Eden

Drune

Today, Seraphim visited the latest Drune iteration. The first thing she noticed was her profile picture, without her permission, up on the over-head display… she couldn’t care less, but found the lack of etiquette pretty disappointing…

Drune2

… the sim was, like previous Drune sims, a glory of neon eye-candy…

Drune3

… also, like the previous Drunes, there was the juvenile obsession with sexual themes…

Drune4

… as though the sim was built by genius 13 year-old boys…

Drune5

… whose sophisticated visual aesthetic was continually over-ridden by their desire to masturbate…

Drune6

… but, when she thought about it, Seri had to admit that this is a fairly common phenomenon in SL…

Drune7

… and, that if you have to have sims built by wankers…

Drune8a

… the wankers might as well be genius 13 year-old boys.

Granny’s Life

GL

Seraphim continues to enjoy creating little still life tableau…

GL2

… it has proven a very effective way of re-establishing knowledge of the contents of her vast inventory…

GL3

… but she also enjoys coming up with a new theme each time. She’ll think of a theme, then try to remember what she has that she could use for the shoot… it often takes a long time to find items she thinks she has, and, along the way, she finds lots of forgotten stuff, and stuff that she thinks ‘cool! I can use that next time!’…

GL4

… she also finds landmarks to really cool stores she hasn’t visited for ages, so, the downside is she’s spending quite a bit, recently, especially on gacha, trying to win specific items she’d like to incorporate in her next creation…

GL5

… she recently spent L$2000 trying to win a certain object, and, not only didn’t win it, but DID win a whole lot of useless crap… she usually has MUCH better luck with gacha…

GL6

… still, it hasn’t dampened her enjoyment of her new-found hobby…

GL7

… and she’s already looking forward to her next creation…
