Satira Capriccio Sneak Peeks

OOOoo I'm REALLY interested in this new set, Satira!!! Love the face morph for Dawn, especially. :) Will this character be smooth completed or have freckles too? Would be nice to have a 'non-freckled' lady. IMHO :)

I don't know what Satira's plan for her skin texture will be, but since she's based on a Grecian muse, I don't think there will be any freckles for her new lady.

Thanks Lyne!

I've been trying to get an idea of what her skin will look like. Kinda hard when most images of ancient Greeks are ... sculptures or pottery.

The ancient Greeks apparently liked smearing a lead based cosmetic foundation all over their faces. Which wouldn't do much for their life expectancy! Apparently, as with other cultures, pale skin was desirable as it implied one did not labor in the fields.

Then I stumbled across this Greek woman. Most likely, Aoide will have a skin similar to this or paler.

Though ... no unibrow, which supposedly was fashionable. If one didn't have a natural unibrow, one apparently drew one on?!? Gosh. and I spent years tweasing the heck out of my brows as I was blessed with Frida brows when dark heavy brows were undesirable.

I like that skin reference Satira, and I agree about the unibrow. I never had that, but they were thick as all get out, and shapeless, so I couldn't wait to start tweasing them.

@Satira Capriccio oh sounds good! (ya ick on lead based make up...geesh!) I always had to tweeze...oddly, in spite of being very fare... but when my Mom "made me" tweeze her brows, it made me gag?!?! :sick: (no such reaction for my own)

Looking good Satira. Is that a new hair you've created? I like it too. ;)

Despite major problems with my computer last month, I'm nearing completion with Aoide, Gaia's Daughters, and Gaia's Gifts.

While there is a scarcity of information on the original Elder Muses, they were daughters of Gaia and Uranus and were muses of music. In time, the number of muses expanded to nine and became the daughters of Mnemosyne (Titan daughter of Gaia) and Zeus (grandson of Gaia, son of Rhea and Cronus)

On the left with the Pandura is the Aoide character in the Melete (Muse of Meditation and Practice) pose. Center is the Aoide (Muse of Voice and Song) pose. On the right with the Tympanum is the pose for Mneme (Muse of Memory). Mneme is often confused with Mnemosyne, but I've gone with the sources that claim the two are separate.
