New Shades
I was lucky enough to get 2 of the new shades on the same fur yesterday, posting a picture of them here so people can see, with Blush for comparison.

The cats are set up in my cattery at http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/St...101/152/38 if anyone wants to pop in for a look at them live.

Picture settings are Render Glow 3, Nam's optimal Skin 2 set to midday.

RE: New Shades
Thank you for placing them out where we can all come take a look in SL.

I'm liking the Sparkle shade -- it's similar to Blush but appears to have some glow without being full bright.

Radiant definitely has a lot of specular shine and/or materials going on thought, which tends to make it look very 'plastic'.

I'm attaching a couple more screenshots, taken using other windlight settings -- one is a bright daylight, the other near sunset/dusk (which tends to wash everything in a reddish hue)…

RE: New Shades
I've never had to pay attention to the shade before when testing starters, so I was a bit slow to do so. So far I've gotten 2 kittens showing Blush and 1 showing Twinkle, which prompts me to mention the following reminder for anyone else who also isn't used to testing for shade:

If, while testing your starters, you get back Glitter, Porcelain, Twinkle, Flash, or Blush shade, the kitten is definitely hiding one of the new shades, as these 5 shades are all retired, and there are no old not-retired shades more recessive than Glitter.

RE: New Shades
My current dilemma is whether to continue looking for shades in cats that are otherwise fully tested.

RE: New Shades
My current dilemma is trying to see what's behind the Radiant I pulled from two starters. It could just be a second kitty with Radiant...and I could breed those kitties out for weeks and weeks without pulling anything else. But all it takes is that one time to see that something else is indeed hiding there. I'm hoping it's something else for the sheer fact we can place something as more recessive than Radiant. But I don't know who has what yet between mom and dad. Working on backbreeding on both, though. Smile If mom has the different hider, it will be easier lol. But if it's dad, it might take a little bit. Especially since he also hides the new Pixie Tufted Ears. Jackpot kitty making things more complex haha.
