Sooooooooo I just got my official copy of Lightwave today, and let me tell you. I’m totally in love. I’ve been looking up all these tutorials and stuff, and there’s so much that I’ve been wishing I could do in Max that I *can* do in Lightwave. Well, it’s *easier* to do these thing anyway. Maybe I just don’t know how to use Max, or maybe Lightwave is just easier, but I’m having a blast. I’ve been playing around with the LW demo for a while now (thank you 2849348329 computers) and I just love the way it handles lighting. For clothing, LW is the way to go. So far I’ve had better luck making nice skin textures using Max. I’m still a LW nub, though, so in time, maybe I’ll figure it out. =D If anyone has any tips, ideas, useful plugins, etc. for me, let me know!

I’ve also pushed back the opening of Fornever and Body Project (my new eyes/shape/skin… well, “beauty product” store) ’til sometime around December 8th-ish, because I’m entering the EFA Design Awards contest. o: I just found out about it a few days ago, so I’m really glad that I had recently purchased Lightwave, and I also ran off to pick up the PS plug-in that had originally inspired the outfit idea.
I’m planning something BIG and I’m really putting my all into this.. like I seem to be able to for almost every contest but I can’t seem to do on my own, lol. Ah well. This will be my 2nd clothing set, EVAR. In SL anyway. And still, I really haven’t done that many clothing items ever. In any case, so far I’m more than pleased with *parts* of what I have now. There are a few things bugging me but they’re things that are out of my total control, so I’m just going to chalk those up to designer-nubness and suck it up. I’m such a perfectionist, which is the reason why my releases are always so scarce or why I can a really long time to do things that take other people 2 seconds to do.

Aaaaaaaaaaanyway, I’m gonna go continue working now. Wish me luck!
