Love Type Thing

Want to see my new favorite screen shot?

She just looks so happy banging on her drums. I made a new couple for JKAmaryllis' competition called Hitched. 

Bailey, pictured above, makes some of the best faces. She makes my face go all happeh.

Etoile, Bailey's "partner" as you people force upon them to use, doesn't make as much faces. I had to sit for the longest time waiting for her to do an idle animation. 

These two were destined/forced together by me and they are cute. The two should be up for upload when I get the chance. I just wanted to take these so I could turn in my models.

I'm Not Dead!

This semester has been awful to me and when I take my last exam Friday I'll be free! Free as a bird until school starts back up again in January. I'm glad it's to be over with in all honesty.

Anyway, I'm still working my little simself story. Turns out I'm too stubborn to go back into my urn when daylight comes around. Let me say, that's made things quite annoying. I make an annoying ghost. =P

My latest entry from Calender Girls:

I have fallen in love with Lightning. She has this Sims 2 look to her somehow, but she's keeping it pretty at the same time. Also, some little trivia for you, the male in this picture is Tristan from Furyred's Heart Legacy. I shrank his ears a little since it looked a little weird with the short hairstyle. I went with the "Military-Boyfriend-In 1960's setting" idea. I think these two make quite a cute couple. ;D We may be seeing babies in the future! (Maybe)

Uhm, for those interested I made a new art portfolio/gallery site. I imported everything from my Deviant Art account (long story why I moved) which I sometimes update but not always. Anyway, for you stalkers here is my portfolio. (Yay self promotion!)

Oh, and here is a sample of a piece I'm working on, I'm still fixing everything up, but it's called a Work-In-Progress for a reason. Oh and there is "boobies" in this piece, meaning that there is outlines of balloons where a certain female body part should be. There is no tiny circles in these balloons. If you are offended by balloons or slight boobies, then I think you shouldn't be following my blog. >_>

It will look way better when done. I haven't done any coloring in Photoshop for a loooong time. I had this drawn on a bristol board in pencil. I took a picture of it with my awesome Droid Eris smartphone. Then I traced it with the pen tool and laid out some basic colors and shades. I plan to go back and fix the eyes and add some more detail and cut off the shot at the upper boobie level. 

I really can't believe it's almost been a month since I've posted. What be wrong with me? D:<

(Side Note: I have used the word boobie in this post 4 times! :D)

What's To Come

So It's been too long since I've made a post. So I'll just make this a preview post for some Sims I've been working on.

I call her Neon. She'll be the second Sim I make for the Periodic Sims. I'm not that happy with her yet, but I love the sparkle shorts. ;D

This is Lightning who I originally made for Blaz's Faerie Folk competition and since I missed that deadline, I took off her wings and changed her hair and stuck her in the Timeless Beauties Calender Girls competition hosted by Sereniticat2 and Hushfirefly. 

Any Final Fantasy fans out there? If you look closely you may be able to tell I based my Lightning on Final Fantasy 13's Lightning.


She didn't turn out how I wanted so I just added my own flair. I've been so addicted to this game, sorry for the lack of updates. I'm not spending all my time on this game though, I'm getting close to the end of the semester at my college and I'm trying to buckle down and study more. If you're my friend on Facebook then you know about the last couple pieces of art I've been working on. 

Sadly, that is all I have for now. I'll post again soon.

Can't Stop The Rain

Something awful has happened in my house of pixels.

You see, it all started with a fire. A fire that me and my pixel husband put out. So we decided in front of the fireplace that just caught on fire would be a great place to get into that frisky. Now, I don't have pictures of the first fire, but it started when I had just gotten myself and Jesse into the "Irresistible" mood. I figured that was a coincidence.

"STOP KISSING ME! MY BUTT IS ON FIRE!" The fire went haywire and I was put out pretty quickly but still singed. 

So I caught on fire again! My children were in the room but freaking out due to the fire, so it was me and the husband putting out this rouge fire on our own. The fire department was still a no show.

Oh hey, there you are!

Oh but you were too late! My poor teenage daughter is now forever scarred from witnessing my death. Yay for ruining her life even in death!

Worst part of it all: spending my final minutes with that horrible hair and barely clothed.  Oh and that blue haired guy is my son. Isn't he so cute? Erm anyways, begging didn't work.

There's my urn, isn't just so smexy? I made myself a little "shrine" by using one of the World Adventures pedestal display cases with a couple of flowers, but I forgot to take a picture of it. So a floor picture will have to do. 

Everything was so quiet in the house. The family members barely spoke to each other, usually I have to constantly pull them away from each other to get some work done. 

Jesse kept himself distracted with improving his martial arts skill. Everyone was so depressed, I had my daughter call in one the professionals....

Thus Is Life

I received some very bad news today:

[Click for bigger view]

Yep folks, the lovely non-default skin tones are now obsolete due to the new patch. They cause the new boob and muscle tone sliders not appear at all. What does this mean? What shall happen to my colorful Sims? I simply cannot live without my beautiful skins. 

It' okay Carbon, we'll figure something out. You can cry if you want to. D':

Okay, this is depressing. Time to move onto a happy subject! I has won an award!

What, you expected a real reward? Pfffttt! My simself has gained the key to the city for being such an awesomesauce architect, because that's totally what mayors give to architects. So I appeared in my whole cleavage-y goodness and accepted my key from the very odd hippie-ish mayor. I be so jealous of his luscious mane. 

Yeah slut-face, you better cheer for me- ooo confetti~ Overall, I say party was a modest attempt. Needed more confetti and better people to look at. :3

Darling, It's About Time

I've been a little busy putting this together.

Why is this chapter so late you may ask? Well, I felt my prologue was just too good. In all honesty I felt like I was going to disappoint. So I waited until any form of a chapter is better than a no chapter. Haha. That and I'm always short on time. I'm actually really excited to see myself working on this. The story idea came to me a in a dream. Anyway, I hope you like the new chapter, I hope it's not too awful, I'm getting rusty with my writing.

Hey, this is my 40th post. Yay!

So I've been super busy with my studies and what-not again. The last couple of days I've been up way late to work on these art projects I had to do. I don't have a picture of the one that took me like two nights to finish, (it didn't turn out that great and I hated looking at it) instead I have the second one I did which I am super proud of.

Medium: Gray-scale construction paper cut with an X-acto knife and glued with cement glue. Have I ever told you my obsession with giraffes? Well, I love them. They are so awkward looking that they are ever so graceful and cautious. It's wonderful.

On a Sim's related note I downloaded the Create A World Tool, I don't have it installed yet, but that will be fixed soon. Uhmm. That's all I have to say now I think.

History Books Forgot About Us

I'm living up to that promise I made weeks ago; I'm posting my faerie from Blazaxx's Faerie Folk contest. I was eliminated this past week, which is sad, but I at least came in fifth. I'm glad I didn't lose to some awful contestants either, those peeps left are crazy awesome and I can't wait to see who wins this cycle.

Anyway, most of the pictures I have of Rue are contest pictures, but the only Photoshop that I have done is hue and brightness and contrast. So she will look very much like the photos. I'd also like to point out - Click the picture for a bigger view.

Same head shot I've used for my other posts on her. It's just my favorite portrait of her. You can see the detail in the eyes and it's just so pretty. Hair is a retexture by Missbonbon.

I never entered this picture, but everywhere I seem to post it, people seem to like this one. I do too.  Hair retexture by Anubis.

Aww, doesn't she look so cute in her little apron dress?

I made this super grunge set and then ended up not using them for the assignment, for it didn't follow what the host wanted. As you have noticed, I really like that hair on her. I've used it for probably half of the assignments.

Okay, so the Rue Deburt file doesn't contain all of these outfits, so here's what she'll come in this outfit that is in the game and the hair in the first picture:

CC List (File Only):
Hair | Wings | Skin | Formal | Eyes | Blush | 

Here she is on the Exchange if you want to rec or the Mediafire file doesn't work that well.
Side Note: If you have any questions about any custom content in any of my pictures feel free to ask. :]

Hey Baby, How 'Bout We Make Some Covalent Bonds

Today kids, I'm going to teach you some science. Some basic science that can easily be found on Wikipedia, but I digress. So today's lesson is on Carbon!

Carbon is a chemical element in which the symbol is C and the atomic number of 6. What's an atomic number? Google it, what kind of teacher do you think I am? Anyway! Carbon is non-metallic and tetravalent. It is most common in the form of diamonds and graphite. It is the fourth most abundant element in the earth by mass.

Now I can't take this idea, for I was really inspired by Xie Belle on Garden of Shadows. She made ALL of the elements on the periodic tables, I'll probably do like two or three. I just really liked the name Carbon and I remembered stumbling across that thread and felt inspired. 

For the traits, I just kind of went with it, I know that carbon likes to bond and... stuff... I'm in biology, I'm no chemist.

Traits: Charismatic, Handy, Family-Orientated, Eccentric

I'm not gonna lie, she makes me smile. :]

Uhm, what other funny comments can I make? None? Well, I might as well post up one last picture.

Time for the Fun part.

CC List: 
Everyday Outfit Everyday Boots Formal Dress Sleep wear  Pearl Headband Earrings  Eyes Donation Hair by Newsea, may transfer. As for the eyes I'm clueless on that one. They are pretty though. I may have another favorite. Thanks Abby! Eyes are by the very talented Subaxi.

This Is My Excited Face

For those of you who have not seen this picture online yet:

We be getting new sliders on Late Night! :D <3! So now I need this Expansion pack so I can make a Pamela Anderson boob sized Sim! Oh and cute little A-cup scenesters too.

This may be nothing for you peeps and yer mod sliders, but for me I need this. I'm starting a fund and it's the fund of "Help Amiee Afford Late Night So She Can Afford Her New Car Too." Only pennies a day can help save this poor girl from being jealous of other simmers and their fancy new expansion pack.

So with the last assignment of Faerie Folk I messed up my Sim's house. Playing with Floor Elevation false and flatten lot are not a good idea. The whole place was squished together. The stairs functioned well but all the items were through the floor and the lights were chilling on the floor. I had my ghost Sim's daughter stuck on an invisible bed and then my ghost Sim just disappeared all together. Luckily though, with Reset Sim and Chaos Mod, I was able to move the family into a much better house. 

I'm feeling kinda icky, so I'm going to go and take a nice shower. I leave you with a picture of the current public bathroom situation at my work:

A Spiral

What costs 12k and is mine?

My 2006 Jeep Liberty! Now I know I just posted about my little Escort and how rusty and junky it was, but the electronic seat belt broke and that was a thousand dollars just to get the parts. I don't know about you guys, but I'm not spending a thousand dollars on a damn seatbelt when I can spend 12k on a nice new car. It has four-wheel drive and it's actually not that big. I live in the mountains, so come winter I'll be the one actually able to leave the house. 

So that's what I've been doing/stressing over. I bought it on the 13th so i'm still trying to configure my payments on all my bills for each week. I don't think I'm going to be able to afford the Late Night expansion pack. :<

I has a poll for you!  Yes! I want to know what the Simming community likes their files to be in. So! Vote and tell me what kind of file you'd prefer to have your Sims in!

What Sim File Do You Prefer?

I'm looking up all the custom content for this loverly Sim for you:

I haven't had much time to play my game, (Darn you college and work and significant other!) but I really want to push more Sims out. So expect... actually don't expect. My life is changing so a lack of updates will happen, but you're welcome to push me to update. (Cough Kelle ;D) 

Oh one more preview of a Sim I'm working on:

She is, of course, supposed to be mixed in the race department. I decided to go half Black, half kinda Asian. I'll gladly take feedback on her. I want to improve. I've never really made a Sim that wasn't pastey white, so every bit helps. Except that whole, "Boo yer sims sucks!!11!! Ariz's are liek wai moar awsume!" But you kids already knew that right? ;D

We Call This A Filler

Guess what I received on Saturday night at 10:43?! Give up? A speeding ticket. Apparently I was going 44 in a 25, which is one below reckless driving. I was in a school zone and zoning out to some nice music, (Probably Fiona Apple) I stop at a stoplight thinking to myself, "Gee I was going pretty fast back there." I make the turn and I see the lights of the lovely hues of red and blue. According to the officer he didn't add on a residential zone fee, which would have add like hundreds of dollars onto my ticket.

Thank you officer, I'm a good kid, I promise. This is my first speeding ticket, but I've had a parking ticket before. I parked in a teachers parking lot at my college and the officers didn't like that.

Anyone want to see a picture of my car? No? Too bad.

I'm very proud of her, she made it to 170,000 miles a couple of days ago. <3

What else to talk about? I made some generic sims for generic contests. Ive debated on uploading them, but I feel they look too.... plastic. 

She's like too perfect. Usually when I feel I made a too perfect Sim I attack their noses to give them some sort of faults. After all, everyone has a fault. Man, I love those lemon leaf eyes too. Too bad I had to kill her for some ghost contest.

Even my faerie for Faerie Folk Cycle 2 looks generic. She's actually sitting in my uploads on my launcher. I can't decide to upload her or not. Maybe if I get some sliders like the rest of you people my Sims won't look so generic? I like the fact that I can say, "Yes, my Sims won't revert if you touch them, they come as they are, no sliders necessary." Maybe if I just don't create a few for awhile I'll come up with someone awesome looking.

On one final note: I am deciding whether or not to start my own contest at Cstyles. I have a theme already. Video Games. The whole idea is your character is the hero/heroine, I will be directing the assignments as if they were levels. For example the first one would be a tutorial and it'd be basic and boring. I'm kind of excited. I plan to do this after the contests I'm in are over and I get it more planned out or something.

Now I am off to go bug Kelle at her chat and hopefully to get some sleep.

I Get Talking Like A Teen

Am I the only one in the Simming community completely in love with Tegan and Sara? I must be. I really want to make Sims of them, and most of all I want their hair.

I'm not going to lie, I wish I could pull their hairstyles off, thus is why I want them for my Sims! I can make pretty girls with this hair-do. There probably already is a couple out there like these and I'm just silly and over looked them, but none the less! I need my Tegan and Sara fan-girl bar filled.

Not know who Tegan and Sara is? How dare you! Listen to the video.

In other news, I've been missing in action this week more than I wanted to be. Turns out going to work right after school was not the best idea, but it gets me the money I need, so I'm going to stick through it. I'm definitely not used to going to school every day. It's just weird to me now. Anyway, I'm going to try to put some Simming time in this week and hopefully get my stuff done and have something more interesting to post about.

Your move-objects glitch of the week. :]
