SL Drawing Class 101

Yama 027-4

Doing a final post for the Home & Garden Expo, unless I get a chance to do some more or feature items in other posts.  I hope that by now you’ve had a chance to stop in and check out the expo and help support Relay for Life of Second Life. It ends on March 6th so you still have time.

I am showing some of the art pieces by Organica, which I absolutely love being an artist in real life.  While I sketch from time to time in pencil I am more comfortable with a paint brush using oils. The easel horses come with a few poses as does the posing stools. The light illuminating from the can light was inserted by me in the photo processing just so you know it’s not that lit. I just wanted to give our model a slow burn… coughs, as he was being a bit obstinate in not wanting to use the poses in the stool. The canvases leaning against the stool are by Meshopotamia and also at the expo.  I used other art pieces from various creators and are listed below.

I enlisted the help of some friends for this picture as it’s always nice to create scenes with other people and not just always by yourself.

Thanks Yama & Tall!

Preparation for another day

Are you waiting anxiously for the new round of the Arcade? The trading chats are starting to buzz again as people prepare their lists.

Aria 007-2

Today I am showing the Bella Glamour Room Collection items from [ARIA], who is participating in this round.  The complete collection consists of 3 rare items and 12 commons.  The rare items include the vanity table, chaise, and chandelier. The common items include the vanity mirror, vanity stool, mirror & makeup bag, perfume tray, jewelry boxes, and vase with roses as well as the faux cowhide rug, side table, book pile, teacup, vase with single rose and framed prints.


There are texture options for the chaise and rose vases while the chaise and stool come with singles animations and some with attachable props.  I’ve listed the items in the collection at the bottom.

I am also showing a sneak peak of one of the bears by BoOgErS called the Mother’s Day Bears Cuddle.  I will be showing more bears very soon, but I couldn’t resist putting in one in today’s post.


The Home & Garden Expo is still ongoing.  I’m showing the elegant chairs that have 9 animations and table from HJM Designs.  There is a vase with flowers that is part of this set not shown.  You will some other sets that go with this collection at the expo.

The orchid vase and arrangement is by Kaerri and is also at the expo.  All these featured creators/designers have some wonderful home and garden decor and not just some of the donation items that benefit Relay For Life.  They also have new releases to help decorate your home.


All this shown in the Expo Skybox, one of the new releases by aKa, at the Home & Garden Expo.  Personally, I don’t do the skybox living, because I love having the ocean view and being surrounded by nature on the ground level.  Though on occasion I have enjoyed them and especially those with city views.

Enjoy the rest of your Saturday!

The Cheyenne

G 0052

Just doing a quick post and showing the Cheyenne log home by Greymoon Designs, a store that specializes in creating detailed mesh houses, furniture and garden stuff.  It’s a huge home with open wide areas in the middle section of both the top and bottom with rooms on each side.


The creator uses original mesh and custom textures to create their low prim homes. This home has a land impact of just over 240, though you see it is a big home and comes in a rez box with everything you see pictured except the large spruces and the grass in front.


This last picture shows the outside space with a fireplace, which makes for the perfect space to enjoy the scenery from every direction.


The log home is available at the Home & Garden Expo on Hope 1 Sim.
