Oh I spy a couple of my heads there; the blonde Etruscan lady with the long braid and the brunette Viking guy I've been calling Bjarni. Bjarni gets around! laugh

Sure, Damon, you can also put it on a modern house's second floor - thanks! :-)

Thank you for the "thank you", WS!

Indeed, Bjarni (great, now I know his name) is a traveller in space and time, as well as the Etruscan lady! laugh

Thalia, I am so forgetful sometimes. I have added a link to your site now, with a note to your head skins featuring in the pic on my site smile

And added a theme dedicated to Haitian Vodou goddess / lwa, Erzulie. I made it in 2015 and was really caught by this spirit of love and beauty, originating to the African river and mother goddess Oshun.

The band Ibeyi sings a song to Oshun: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lHRAPIwsS5I
Really like that.

Several working and deco objects in two sets, one for Erzulie Dantor and one for Erzulie Freda, who are two aspects of the same spirit.

Find them at http://www.doortomore.net/andrasta_dusk2.html

Aw thanks Andrasta, but you totally didn't have to link or credit or anything. It's just a screen cap.

Love the Erzulie stuff, especially the one with the friendship spell! And the dwapo--I've always loved them. They're so gorgeous.

Hey Thalia, your gorgeous skins simply deserve it!

Yes, the dwapos are truly fascinating; I've made quite a huge a picture collection on my hard disk. They are made of beads which unforunately does not show in the small Sim paintings.

As we are at skins: have you ever wondered where I had found the colorful head scarfs I used in the vodou screenshots?

They are by Bruja who made them for the vodou theme - thank you so much, dear! - and come in many colours and patterns. Since she had not published them as far as I know, I have put them on my site now. She gave permission back in 2015.

Find the download in my gift section:

Very cool stuff! In my country there is a religion adapted from African (as Vodoo was in the Caribbean). The name is Umbanda, is a very rich religion, I have participated in some rituals, the Goddess of love is also called Oshun, in Brazil its name is Oxum.

@André
Thanks, great that you like it!
I am collecting information on Candomblé to see whether I could adapt some items (which I've made for Vodou) to it. In case you have ideas just tell me!

@Mary Martha
I am happy that you like the beavers!
Regarding making frogs turtles or crocodiles - well, it is a task of changing 576 sprites (images) laugh That is why I took a very long time to make the beavers, and most probably I won't make crocodiles (or else) very soon. Hopefully there is someone with lots of time and patience smile

@zosa
192 color images (of one zoom only - I usually make only one zoom of three and let automatise the other two zooms) and an a sprite and an z sprite for every color image. Animated objects are kind of a little animated cartoon.
