New Evolution Head Line at LeLutka!!!

Today I am very excited to show you one of the 2 new heads of the new LeLUTKA Evolution line. They are to be released at January the 6th, 2020 (today) according to the LeLutka press release.

There will be an introduction price of 3700 L$ until the 20th of January before they will have the LeLutka standard price of 5000 L$.

What first jumped into my eyes when I put on the “LeLUTKa – Erin 1.0” head was the new HUD interface…

I added all of the tabs to one picture from top to bottom buttons) to have a better overview.

The new heads are 100% Bakes on Mesh (BoM), you only will be able to use your older appliers (LeLutka & Omega) for skin, eyes and lashes. Since this new head line has a new HD lip and eyeshadow layer, your old appliers will not work anymore with those new heads. They are really meant to be used for BoM mainly 🙂 As you can see in the first tab – right beside the navigation bar -the new heads have multiple material options with softer and stronger details (it took me a while till i figured out that the feather icon does mean it is the softer version*giggles*). In addition you can still modify glossiness, intensity and environment for your materials with the sliders below.

On the second tab you will see your default lashes that come with the head. 12 lashes were included with the possibility to mix and match the top and the bottom to get your own unique, signature look.

The 3rd tab includes the 12 eye colors you get delivered by default with your new HUD. You now can even have 2 different colored eyes and you can safe applied eyes to the free save slots at the bottom. You as well have the option to switch to baked on mesh versions. In the “Genetics” tab, which  forgot to include on my overview (the sign under under the “play” button on the navigation bar) – so I will add it  HERE as a quick gyazo –  you as well can change the size of your iris and the offset of your eyes. In the same tab you can hide and color your lacrimal caruncle, choose the style of your teeth, play with your ears prominence and as a new feature hide your tongue!

The Teeth/Mouth tab offers you 9 different color and shading options for your teeth with 5 different anatomical variations (Again those you find in th Genetics tab).

The next 2 tabs are the new HD eye makeups and lipsticks – 6 colors each with different materials and the sliders to modify them.

The tab with the “play” button hold all the 23 cool new moods and the 32 new expressions that are now driven by an improved rigg, which as well gives you more options to work on your shape with the “edit appearance” sliders. As well new is the eye/lid section as now you have both eye lids animated along with the eyes, which gives you a way more realistic look. I already tested my Axis HUD as well and that still works perfectly to even adjust those expressions of make your own ones.

Because of BoM, there will be no longer default skins from Glam Affair included, but you get an LeLutka face applier in 4 different tones without brows since they are now applicable with system tattoo layers as well (4 tones included). For todays post I used nevertheless one of the amazing Glam Affair skins that were made for this new heads and as well will be released on the 6th of January. Glam Affair will release 5 new skins that work with both oft the new LeLutka heads (Erin & Nova) perfectly. Each skin comes in the 12 actual skin tones as BoM layers and HUD appliers. Each skin tone comes in A – E versions for the different eye brow colors and one brow-less option (E). I Decided to go with the “Xia Layer [LeLutka] 002 E” for todays post. What is new to those skins as well are the “Universal Layers”, which I have to spotlight in another post soon. The Glam Affair press releases says:

“We’re very excited to launch the Glam Affair Universal System Layers. These are special tattoo layers blended to apply only the face and make up areas of a Glam Affair release to any other skin…not just our own brands! ADD them to your current BoM skin and see how they work!”

I have to admit, it is really worth to play with them even on other skins and see that cool effect! The Universal Layers come in 8 special tone layers with a brows (A) and a brow-less option (B).

For your new LeLUTKA Evolution head, you as well get a new hairbase pack with 4 hairbases in 8 different colors – I had to find out that I can tint hairbases still as back in the old days in your edit outfit window as long as they are modify.

Speaking of tinting.. when I first played with the new LeLutka HUD I was nearly freaking out as I thought we are no longer able to tint the different layers… but then I thank god found the Tint Panel…

… but it is still there under the sweet half colored drop button on the navigation bar!

I am not yet done with all the possibilities and so I guess you will have to read more over the next days/weeks/month about the new heads and my attempts to twist them to be more “Wicca” again with different skins and options, but I wanted to so a quick sneak preview about them already, so you can get as excited as I was when I heard about the new LeLUTKA heads line!

“It was a long time ago, longer now than it seems,

In a place that perhaps you’ve seen in your dreams.

For the story that you are about to be told,

Took place in the holiday worlds of old.

Now you’ve probably wondered where holidays come from.

If you haven’t, I’d say it’s time you begun.”

Finally my favorite season arrived… October is here!!!

Now I can be freaky, scary and dark without being asked if I am ok or being called weird and a freak – not that I do really care during the year, but these days I can feel “normal” *giggles*

So the first one today – kinda my annual brake-free – features some new releases from Salt & Pepper and Nefekalum Tattoos and some of my long time favorites like CURELESS[+], UTOPIA@Design, Avanti and one of our latest releases, as it did fit in so nicely.

First I wanted to do a scary Medusa typical picture and the Salt release her “Guardian” for the Salem event. I t looked so cool, that I could not wait for another post and so I gave myself the challenge to find an idea, how I could use both. The result was the vision of a gatekeeper for an old, mystic cave with lots of cobwebs and spiders.

Recently I love to play with lights and projectors, as well as with new Photoshop tricks a lot. The result is, that I tend to use a plain dark background, to be able to add in some layers and basically try create the background in Photoshop. With additional lights and my new drawing pad it is a lot of fun to play with different brushes and as well even draw parts of it – even if iI really need more practice with that damn pad and pencil. Sometimes It feels even more easy to draw with the computer mouse, even if that sounds ridiculous for those who have more experiences with it.

I always loved strong contrasts. With many of my past pictures I wanted more depth as Second Life had to offer and now finally I found a way how I can do that with some tricks I found in Youtube tutorials. It took a while until they did what I wanted, but for me it was worth the time and I really found new inspiration and motivation with learning new techniques. It felt like unlocking new doors to have more possibilities to achieve what I was looking for a long time. I am still practicing and with every new picture I come closer to what I desire.

I lately was talking to a sweet lady, which I recently feel like a good friend. She does the wonderful sweet and smooth art, which I tried a lot of times but never could do – maybe it just isn’t in me or I did not yet find it… it always feels awkward when I try to do this kind of pictures and moods. She helped me with my tribute for Autumn Rose a lot, as that required exactly that way of art (HERE).

In the past it felt like I would have to have the ability to feature all kind of styles, but the more I turn into my personal favorite direction, the more I feel secure and my pictures do have way more impact  – at least it does feel like that!

I am not saying I will not still try other things, but I took the pressure of myself that I HAVE TO do so. For now I will do enjoy the dark season as much as I can and hope that I can get all my ideas done in time, before the cozy Christmas times will start… or maybe the dark times turn into dark scary “Krismus”? *eyes “The Nightmare before Christmas” DVD over there in the shelf*
