THANKS THIS IS GREAT

Can I haz feedback/ideas/opinions please? For some reason I got it in my head to make a set based on stars. So.. well, here's what I have so far. The stars are done- except for the shadows which I'm not sure about. It's my first try at custom shadows. The bench and table are far from done and I'm not loving them yet.




There's also a star wall hanging that's not pictured. All the stars have 3 recolors and they're not as dull and boring as what's shown here.

eta: Pic of the wall hanging (which I AM loving) and some of the recolors of the others..to prove that I do have an imagination when it comes to choosing textures.. sometimes.

I like them MLC  Grin
I have been working on these 4 book meshes for about a week now the book pile in the middle are 2 meshes I just used an omsp to place a pile on top of the other. Today though I finally got around to slaving them to a Master Mesh I just couldn't see having almost 50 recolors(11 recolors for each mesh) taking up space.

Paden and Witchboy, it would be just great if you would lend me some of your fabric textures. Thanks very much for your offers.  Smiley

The main issue about the fabric texture is that it must be either fairly easily tilable or big enough to cover a whole 3-tile cushion. That's why I'm having problems finding something in my own texture library that isn't just solid or my usual colonial/exotic style. I'm thinking it might be nice with something patterned for the cushions, although probably not too floral or at least modern/retro floral. Stripes and prints could also be good. But I'm really not at all sure what kind of style I want to go for - modern, shabby chic, retro, whatever - so I'm definitely open to suggestions.

Sizewise I'm using a 512x512 map and the fabric texture takes up most of that in height and just over half of that in width.

HugeLunatic over at TSR let me have some really good Maxis match wood textures for the bases, so I think I've got that covered now.

Mustluvcatz, that's another fun idea. I like the star scupltures - particularly the two on the right in the bottom picture. The bench is good too, although I don't particularly like the 'stars and stripes' theme. I'm not sure I understand the table, though. Is that just one table or are there two on top of each other? How about trying to make a tabletop that is made up by three, four or more stars - kind of like the wall hanging, but without the hole. A single star tabletop would be almost impossible to eat at. And one last thought: Using slightly rounded shapes for bench frame and table legs could soften up the 'angularity' of the star shapes.

Moune, I don't know if you saw over at MTS but I, too, have lots of textures. Paden gave me some of them but I do have a lot I found on my own and alot of them are 512x512. I have a set that's coordinating that I really like- it has checks, stripes and toile in red, pink, yellow, green, purple, black- um I think there's 2 blues. If you want those let me know and I'll get them to you.

The table? I HATE it. It's cloned from the Crazy 8 end table so it's not really meant to be ate on. (I think?) I was thinking the same thing about the bench frame. The polys right now are low so adding some roundedness won't hurt it. I haz another idea for the table....

Mlc, yes, apologies for having left you out.  Smiley I did run quickly by MTS late last night, but I was about to hit the sack and didn't take time to reply. Earlier tonight I was on my way over there after posting here, but then the site was down for maintenance. And now it's a bit late, so I'll leave MTS until tomorrow.

But I did see those pretty fabrics you posted. The one with the green and brown leaves is fantastic and I had intended to try and see if I could tile that up. Will see if I can get around to that tomorrow instead. I'd love to try out your coordinating set - or even just one of the textures. Like I said I'm still a bit at sea with regards to how this set should look, and I think the best way to settle on a style is to keep trying different textures until it suddenly looks right. At least I hope.  Cheesy

Sorry to have misunderstood your table. Looking forward to seeing the new version. This could turn into quite an interesting theme.

http://www.mediafire.com/?o0lwcwlonjg - Textures for Moune or anyone else who wants them.  Smiley I don't think any of them have been edited so they're seamless since I tend to edit as needed and not save. There are some that should tile pretty easily though.

eta: Forgot to mention what kinds of textures are in there. There's stripes, checks, toile, the leaf one and 2 more like it, some florals (ones that caught my eye along the way..not to frilly)...there's more than that. There's quite a few- and they're mostly .jpeg's around 500X500, some bigger, some a bit smaller.
