Showing PXL Creations - Jude - Autumn - Face 0 - Military hair H1.

PXL Creation Jude is probably one of the most versatile skins I had to try. It fits each and every shape of my commercial shape collection. Maybe it’ll look a bit less good on huge avatars, due to distortions of the body lines, but no skin would avoid that! This skin looks particularly smooth, due to the fine hand drawn work, with key points carefully photosourced, like lips and ears, and perfectly integrated in the whole texture. The face looks like one of a 30yo man, with a few fine lines showing, for a very realistic feeling.

Bald and painted hair versions (offered in each pack with the military painted hair shown in the main composite).

(Left to Right & Top Down) body hair options: Hairless BN, Haired Chest B1, B2, and B3 (offered in each pack with the BO version, hairless with happy trail, shown in the main composite).

(Top Down) 4 available skin tones: Winter, Autumn, Spring, Summer.

In each facial hair individual pack, you will find three head hair options, each in 5 body hair options, so 15 variations per pack.
Besides the classic “Bald” and “Painted hair,” you will find a very original military trimmed painted hair.
Body Hair options offer 3 chest hair options, plus one option without chest hair and happy trail, and one with only pubic hair.
Jude Skin is set to “No mod-No trans.”
Each pack is sold for 2000 Lindens. A fat pack including all 8 facial hairs available (shown below) is sold for 9000 Lindens, and you can choose among three special minipacks of 2 facials (shown below), for a mere 3000 Lindens.

8 available different facial hair, sold separately, in a fat pack of 8, and in special bi-packs of 2 (Top Down:lines 1, 2, and 4 of the composite).

Quality of the face: 4.5/5 - Quality of the body: 4/5 - Usability (different options provided in each facial option pack — body hair, head hair, makeup… —, Modify perm allowing you to tweak the color…): 4.5/5 - Price: 2.5/5 - Value for money: 4/5

What we like: The quality of the face, mostly totally hand drawn, the clever position of the upper ab line, matching the torso joint, for a smoother look when your avie is moving. The quality of the skin colors and more than anything else, the incredible versatility of this skin which will probably fit any faces!

  3. Good looking skin, but were are the black skin tones? You guys could promote a bot more diversity on the grid.

  4. There have been black skins blogged here before, Elisha. Evidently this designer doesn’t make darker tones, at least not yet. You blog what’s available. When designers design black skins that don’t just look like caucasian skins colored darker, they’ll be worth blogging.

    Maybe you should start a blog to promote more diversity on the grid.

  5. Excuse me for my bad language. Here long as I wanted to change the skin. I chose the fatpack (9000L$) Jude Summer which comprises a total of 105 combinations. I am not a great expert of skins but this model are excellent . The details are superb. We distinguish even the veins on the arms. The hair on the torso are well done. Good work, I find. And especially this haircut (Military hair) is really surprising. Bravo SLmen!

    Voici longtemps que je souhaitais changer de skin. J’ai opté le fatpack (9000l$) de Jude Summer qui est composé en tout de 105 combinaisons. Je ne suis pas un grand expert de skins mais ce modèle est excellent. Les détails sont superbes. On distingue même les veines sur les bras. Les poils sur le torses sont bien réalisé. Du beau travail, je trouve. Et surtout cette coupe de cheveux (Military hair) est vraiment surprenante.

  7. One of the best male skins around. The chest hair made it for me. Can’t find that on too many skins with this many options and done so well. Great review.
