I’ve mentioned before that I planned to get rid of old skins and I’m finally going to do it. They will go poof on August 1st. And if you are interested in the emoness behind it, read on.
So it’s been ages since I had a new release.. and if you’ve kept up with my shop, you know that releases have slowed to a trickle over the past few months. I’ve been feeling really conflicted about my shop for a while now and it’s been wreaking havoc on what I consider the fun in Second Life. Suffice it to say, I’ve been slow to release things because everything I’ve released since my Retro Pinup skins has been a total failure. So I’ve been really kinda scared to release new stuff because, well, nobody likes to see their hard work so poorly received. Lame, I know, but I’m full of hangups. I’ve contemplated just closing up shop completely but I’m just not quite ready to do that yet. So, instead of closing down, I’m going to finally pull up all of my old stuff. I need a fresh start. Those skins, while still pretty to look at, were made when I first got started and knew absolutely zero about Photoshop, SL and quality. While I’m still pretty much a noob, I think my quality is vastly improved. So those things no longer are an accurate representation of what I’m trying to do. And I also feel like the majority of my new releases are being completely ignored in favor of rummaging around in the clearance bin. So, it’s the end of an era and the beginning of a new one. Regardless of where things continue to go, it’s a step in a much needed new direction for me and hopefully I can get back to enjoying SL again. 🙂
