Whilst Miss Eloh Eliot is busy making her Pleiades skin’s .psd - already available in Second Life at the Gnubie Store and her parcel in Lippert - ready for public consumption by many, and postponing release of those .psd’s bit, hoping this will counter abuse in shape of the ‘business in a box’ concepts, Miss Strawberry Holiday - Jennifer Burlingame to the humans - released the ‘Freckle’ skins: “Eloh Eliot did Second Life a huge favor a while back by releasing some very high quality skins into the world of Second Life. I made a skin based on these publicly available skins.”
Whilst she lost some of the Photoshop work she has done on these - sorry to hear that, Miss Holiday - Strawberry still offers us tons of possible combinations and options in the face skin template: star decorations, different make up styles, skin tones (if you know how to handle opacity and/or colour overlays), ugly and pretty teeth options, and most important: cute freckles! There are two different types of freckles, but of course, you can change the effect they have by playing around with layer opacity and blend modes. Look at two totally unique - almost opposite - results created in a few minutes time.
I really like how the ‘black’ one turned out, that much, that I consider changing virtual ethnicity for a while. Not sure yet if I can cope with living the virtual life without spots, though.
I’ve searched for a ‘copyright policy’ to no avail, so for the ease of mind, I’m assuming these ‘Free Freckle Skins’ - being a derivative -fall under the same ’share alike’ policy as Eloh Eliot’s skins. Thus, ladies, mod them, wear them, hate them, love them, … but you better be armed if someone catches you selling these skins! ;)
The Free Freckle Skins for Second Life by Strawberry Holiday are
available in-world at Marawa to be found at Bay City Tanelorn ( TP new TP or as a direct download .zip file from StrawberryHoliday.com. Make sure to take a look at Strawberry’s portfolio as this lady can do more than just pretty body textures, eg. the ‘Disconnect’ installation I enjoyed a few weeks ago.
