Going Blonde

Going Blonde
le masque diamant skin by Mesut Collins and Gia Pawpad

Friday I blogged as a brunette, earlier today I was a redhead and now I’m a blonde. I know I seem indecisive but I felt like having a little fun with my blogging. I’m going to play around with skin tones and hair colors more often, even though I have to admit I am totally liking this blonde on me. We’ll see how it goes. Feel free to yell at me and let me know you prefer me in my darker tones, I’m used to people saying that all the time. 😛

The reason for this post is the new skin I’m wearing in the first picture above. ^^ It’s a brand new skin from Gia Pawpad of LoQ. She just put it in the store now. The name of the skin is Diamant and I’m wearing the pale tone. It comes with blond brows and tattoo layers for dark, black and red brows as well. Also has cleavage and pubic hair options. As you know I love to play in photoshop so I have photoshopped that pic a lot, for a raw shot of me in the skin you can check out this plurk and also remember to try on a demo before purchasing.

Since this is my blonde post, I figured I’d also share another image I did earlier this week just for fun in a different hair and makeup. A few people immed me asking me for the credits of the image since I never blogged it so I figured I’d go ahead and just blog it.

I was also asked to show a before and after of the image. I always get two questions often: “How much do you photoshop your pictures?” and “What kind of computer do you have?” In all honesty, I really don’t photoshop my images all that much because I am no expert in photoshop at all. You can see from the image below that I don’t do much other than a bit of liquify, blur, brightness and sometimes cloning and dodge and burn.

Would you like to share a “before and after image” and reveal some of your photoshop secrets? I’m sure it’ll be a great learning experience for everyone. Feel free to blog, flickr, plurk, etc… and lemme know when you do! <3 Unwritten - before and after

Finally, I know it has nothing to do with this post but I wanted to plug in a new machinima I saw today and really love. It’s such a powerful film so I thought I would share it.
