Satira Capriccio Sneak Peeks

The last Pose I'm working on is for Polyhymnia, who was the Muse of Sacred Poetry, Sacred Hymn, Dance, Eloquence, Agriculture, and Pantomime. Sometimes, she's also mentioned as being the Muse of Geometry and Meditation. She's usually shown as very serious, pensive, and meditative, often dressed in a long cloak and veil and resting her elbow on a pillar. She may be shown with grapes, which is a reference to her being the Goddess of Agriculture.

I have four possible poses for Polyhymnia, and I'm having a difficult time deciding which one to use. From left to right, they are A, B, C (holding a grape cluster), and D (holding a cloth lined basket of grapes)

Any preferences?

Although all 4 are nice poses, considering all the other poses you have, I think it's a toss-up between C and D, though I think I'm leaning a bit more towards D.

Soo ... apparently, I couldn't leave well enough alone, and decided to add a base to the pose set.

Preload Option 1 - Platform, Column & Cushion, Bench, and Planter.

Preload Option 2 - Platform, Column & Cushion, Drapery, Bench, and Planter.

Platform, Column, Cushion (the square piece at the top of the Column), Bench, and Planter can be loaded separately, as can the Drapery.

The drapery has several morphs, Wind Back, Wind Left, Wind Right, Twist Left, Twist Right, Twist Left Bulbous, and Twist Right Bulbous. They can be combined to to get even more (or stranger) looks to the drapery.

Material Set 01 - Drapery Wind Back

You are on a roll Satira. I'm liking the Twist morphs for the Drapery a lot.

Well, considering how particular Satira is with her promos, I would hope soon--ish. I also hope it doesn't take long to get through QAV so we can get it sooner, rather than later. ;)

I hope to have the promos finished by the end of the month, after which I will be able to submit. A minor health issue has been cutting into my computer time, so it's taken longer to get things done.

The hardest part with the promos is how the heck do I show everything without going over the limit on promo images!!!

Yes, I don't envy our CAs having to create promos a specific size, and ONLY a specific size. That's definitely got to cramp their style, while making the process that much harder.

I believe Satira's talking about the number of promo images, as in not having a million of them. There's actually quite a lot of leeway on the sizes of most of the promo images ;)

Ohhh, I hadn't even though of it in that sense. In that case, not surprising since this is a large set, so will need lots of promos.

Alisa's right. It's the number of promo images I referred to. Not the size. I normally work in a 1286x1728 format, so find the 1000x1300 close enough it doesn't bother me. I thought we were limited to about 12 promos, and was stressing over how I was going to get everything that's included in Gaia's Daughters (poses, props, and the base set) squeezed into 12 promo images!

But ... with the leeway of including "almost" a million popup promos, I should be good!

:p
