It is bound to happen.
A photo is taken with an object that was not intended for release.
And on those occasions,
there is usually a WCIF question to follow.
This is a different kind of post.
These sets have been requested
from my personal collection.
(This won't be a habit)
They don't really fit a lager theme,
but that doesn't make them any less useful,
so today we have three tiny sets.
Tiny in that there are only two images
in each of the files.
Set 1: GUNS.
I wish I could tell you who did this painting.
The intensity and tension captured is truly amazing.
Sadly, the blog it was found on did not credit the artist.
I have paired it with a more personal image. A target.
I owned a picture just like this - it came from a Valentines Day display.
The people of Cambridge Massachusetts found it in bad taste,
so it was taken down. I luckily ended up with one of them.
Set 2: SIMLISH
LivingSims had a little challenge to make a graphic poster.
This is going back a while - I had never made a picture for the sims before.
These are the very first things I have ever done for Sims 3.
I never submitted them as I feared they were too boring.
The pine cone image is a personal favorite.
(I even have a pine cone tattoo)
It has been reassembled from a 1800s German botanical.
The Redwoods image is from an existing poster with simlish substitute.
Set 3: WATER
Who says art isn't educational?
Borrowed from a 1950s etiquette book,
this image I intended to paint for my RL dining room;
mirrors were used instead.
This image was my very first clone.
The second image was culled together for my entry in a LivingSims challenge:
Create a Beach Cottage. The sim's favorite color was blue.
I found this image on an art blog while researching woodcuts.
It is by artist Ruth Wetzel and it is gorgeous.
Having done woodcuts, I can tell you this is masterfully done.
It is not an easy medium to work in.
You should buy an original from her!
So that's it.
Because these were old, they have been newly cloned,
reworked, and put on new meshes
(well, the two canvas' anyway, the simlish is on an EA mesh)
just for this post.
Remember - you asked for them.
Now you have to live with them.
(in both formats)
this Thanksgiving Day.
