I apologize that it's taken me so long to get back here and post this review but I've been rather a busy guy lately with just too many irons in the fire and not enough hours in the day.
Now to get started with this review, I want to say that I have always had mixed feelings about Pogi's (SuperPogimon) work. Not because I don't think he's a really great builder but because he has a tendency to push the envelope and sometimes he has pushed it further than I'm willing to go.
When I first went to his showcase thread, I saw some houses that I thought; "Do ya think ya could add some more patterns to that room?" being sarcastic as he is a guy who loves patterns and this is probably where he sometimes goes too far with me.
Now that I've said that negative, I want to say something very positive; he is a very creative and an amazing builder. He is someone who is not afraid to go way out on a limb to create; which is the sign of a true artist. A true artist is never going to please everyone with their work. They are going to be criticized more than most because they see something that others don't see and because of that extra site, they will create things that others will not understand or appreciate.
Now I'm going to show you some of his work that I appreciate. And when I Do appreciate his work, I really appreciate his work.
Let's start with his "Victorian Apartment Life"
To me, this is a very fine mix of architecture and landscaping. His use of different color coordination with each one shows a great eye for colors which is one of Pogi's strong suits. The windows, the balconies, the flower plots; all make for a very appealing place. This is where you hope to see a sale sign so you can have a chance to at least go in and take a look around even if you know you can't afford to move here.
Now I don't know how practical this build is being that we don't have a TS3 version of "Apartment Life" yet but what a nice lot to have in any neighborhood. The real estate prices are bound to go up.
The Modern Tamura:
Then, the more I looked at it, the more I appreciated it. I will say that it's not the architecture that I like about it the most but it does have a certain confusing appeal to it. But, I want to move inside and show you some of my favorite rooms that got what I call the "WOW" factor out of me.
Gosh, I could go on and on with this review because Pogi has got some great work. I want to add that he is also a very talented Sim creator as I saw when I went through his showcase thread. This blog is about lots or I'd show you some of them but I will include the link to his thread at the end of this review and I do encourage you to go over there when you have some time to really take a look through some of the 39 pages at this time, of his work. You'll enjoy it if you do.
But, its time to get down to Pogi's most recent work and what I think is his finest work. I was amazed by the architecture when he first displayed it on my Workshop thread.
I felt I need to show both these photos of the dining area because you need them both to fully appreciate the room. Again he employed the use of the curtains on the windows which frame the beautiful blossomed trees just outside. The accent wall is perfect in color and design. This is my favorite room out of them all.
Now just to top it all off; a twilight view:
Overall, Pogi is more of an artist than anything else. He puts allot of self expression into his work and because of it, he stands apart from all the other builders with unique designs that defies any rule book.
To download any of Pogi's design's you can go to the following link to his showcase thread. There's much more to look at as you'll see.
