Things are coming along decently – if you’ve been following the Flickr feed, you’ll likely have seen updates along the lines of makeups, finalised skin tones, and some promo shots. The train is finally moving, but there are many things to do before I can really say these are ready for release. Continue reading Updates and thoughts on opening
A bit of skin tone comparison underway. I’m probably going to send out test skins some time soon either today or tomorrow, and am hoping to remain sensitive to ethnic colouring. Having some concerns with screen to screen colour calibration, but there’s really not that much one can do to control the end user’s experience 🙁
In any case, hoping to push through this as soon as I can so I can get to some of the makeup options.
Welcome to the first post at Kitheres Industries’ blog!
There isn’t much here yet, and I’m working on adding a customized template fairly soon to coincide with some new content I’ve been working on, but i figured I’d kick off my postings to this blog while I felt like posting (and also since it’s pretty late and I don’t really want to start filling my head with CSS and HTML 😛 )
In any case, those who are familiar with Kitheres will know that it’s mostly been my scifi/fantasy based hobby/business, which has mostly taken a backburner to my tree business, Organica.
I’ve always wanted to try my hand at developing Kitheres further though, because I have always been interested in avatar customization, coming from an illustrative and character design background. So within the next couple of months, along with a bunch of other personal and location changes, I’ll be posting a bit about various things I’m working on as well as products that I am releasing.
For one thing, I’m pleased to announce that I am working on a new set of skins for general and genre use. I’ve sent around several editions for testing, and will probably begin working out skin tones based on their finalized bases within the next couple of days. After that, probably some basic makeup options, finalizing a building for my store, and then prep for some major changes to my overall presence in SL. Basically, I will be upgrading Sylvan to a full region, so my first point of order is to move over all my Organica stuff, set up Kitheres in the sim as well, then completely re-landscape the sim to take advantage of added primmage, etc.
And then hopefully work stuff will catch up with me ;P
Sooo yeah. Busy busy next little while. Pretty optimistic though, as long as I keep the pace up, i guess!
Anyhow, I wanted to publicly thank the folks (Leilany Lafollette, Vivianne Draper, Zorena Deckard, Zuleika Deere, Kira Zobel, Vertigo Paris, Dahlia Eilde, Arilynn Karu, Charlemagne Allen and Ash Garden) who have been a great help with testing thus far. There’s a bit of testing left yet, but i really, really appreciate the help you’ve all provided thus far!
