Re: permission for use of my creations
The whole reason I started making male clothing was becasue there are so many great female clothes, and so, so few sexy male clothes. I got tired of searching, waiting, hoping, so I got photoshop and learned to use it to make the kind of male clothing I wanted to see myself.
Then, I set myself a challenge to try and even up the odds of female:male clothing. I regularly stay up to 2 or 3 am working on the one piece of male clothing for one or two weeks to get it just right (and then make variations, which is usually faster). Yes, I know it seems hopeless, and my husband thinks I am nuts, but I was hoping that maybe it will inspire other people to do more with male clothing - the possibilities are limited only by the imagination!
So, if I allow my works to be re-fitted to females and posted publically, then my own work has been used against me and tilts the odds back towards females again, and goes against what I'm trying to achieve.
If anyone would like to use any of my creations as a base for other work for producing male clothing only, or to re-fit for other male age groups, yes, yes YES! Please do that! Don't even ask me, just do it and post it up and give me credit for the original design!
If people would like to re-work my creations to fit to females for themselves at home, and they want to share with their friends privately and not through any public channels, I've got nothing against that.
I will not give permission for my work to be re-fitted to females for posting in a public forum, or made public in any way, for any reason or purpose.
I'm really sorry if this disappoints anyone... but I hope I've explained myself well enough so that while you might not agree with me, you can at least see where I'm coming from. It's not that I want to be difficult, it just goes against my principles.
Kiki_Chan and Saracentner, you've both given me the highest of compliments by wanting to re-use my work and asking my permission. Thankyou. If either of you would like to see a specific clothing type/design in particular that you would like to see on a male Sim, just let me know, and I will make time to create it for you.
