Tanaquil playing with shadows 3

Sometimes, you think something will help you a lot, make your work so much easier and when it actualy is there, you open wide eyes with horror, realizing you were so wrong and that actualy, it is not helping at all but maybe even making it more difficult.

That is what SL shadows are for me at the moment. While the atmosphere of the pictures is better, i have to sacrifice quality to enable shadows. So far, i haven’t been able to have them with anti-aliasing on, which gives horrible jagged edges. I had to blur all the lines and edges to make them smoother. And anisotropic filtering is just a big NO if i don’t want my screen to turn all black.

If you have a closer look, you’ll also notice the shadows are pixelated, you can see rows of squares becoming lighter.

It looks good, if you don’t pay attention to details or are looking at it from far away. I guess i need to train and get my hand at it and play with the settings to have better shadows but so far, i am a bit disapointed.

On the contrary and let’s now talk about fashion, i am not disapointed at all by this week’s Project Themeory: Fall Festivale. The clutch and skirt are from Milk Motion while the adorable Happy Find’s owl pendant is simply a must have!

The other day, i’ve read on Grazia Horwitz blog that Janie Marlowe from Mischief was back on the track with a new store: JANE. I’ve found at her shop some very cute pieces of clothing. Here, you can admire the aviator jacket which unfortunately hides a bit an awesome lace babydoll. It is definately a place you want to check for reasonable priced clothing.
