This is my current avatar. She's an Usagi Child ^.^  

i was wondering around a SIM one day, and some dude private messaged me tellin' me he loved my look... he was very polite and kind, asked me to stop running and turn my AO off for him, so i did... the

I find it very entertaining to switch my looks according to my mood. I woke up one day and decided to change my shape into a more petite and "model" look.   Before (with Genesis Lab bento head):

Lovely, lovely, lovely! ❤️ This is the sort of extremely high-quality avi pictures you see in equally high-quality stores. :)

Depth of field using a depth map as a mask. I've had mixed results with this, but it works well here I think.

Nice! Depth map method does work very well here. I can only get this method to work around half of the times I've tried, and I can't figure out what I'm doing wrong on the half that it doesn't. 🤷‍♀️

Sometimes I get jagged or splattered edges on the blur -- I think it might have something to do with alpha layers, but I'm not certain either. Another problem is if you've got a scene with movement, of course. This one had some birds flying around, but they don't seem to have caused problems.

I like it when it works: it's a very neat solution, and it gives one more control over it. On top of which, I occasionally crash when I turn DoF on in BD.

Well, she is my older sister! I think she's "prettier" -- but I'm the one with style.

But don't tell her I said so.

That has the ring of truth it. The Depth Map method, using the 'levels' trick, is rather elegant, but probably not a 100% foolproof (when doing the 'quick-and-dirty' demo version of it), as white/black around edges (that would normally already have some anti-aliasing going on at their borders) may not be selected to become fully black for the alpha map. You'd need some anti anti-aliasing tool for that. :) Or maybe just a thin 'feather' around the alpha mask, who knows?

Of course, I feel dumb now even talking to you about this, as you, very obviously, have a tenfold better understanding of PhotoShop than I do. 🥰 Just meant to say, I feel you're probably onto something with the alpha-layer borders.

Meh -- I'm not PS expert, by any means!

I think what you describe is more or less what's happening. It might indeed be possible to doctor the map in PS where that occurs -- dunno! Haven't tried it! Maybe I will now!

I've worked out what looks different now that you have your new head.

You look happy. With your old head you always looked to be somewhere between mild melancholy and deep depression.

Hehe,  love seeing you use a wee overbright facial look too. :) Especially on your avi, which is so Angelic to begin with. ❤️

 

N.B. I've been raking my tiny brain on why faces actually almost always look better that way. My preliminary guess is, that, in absentia of true facial detail, our brains just resort to interpolating a lot, just fill in the blanks, as it were, with what we know a face should look like -- a process in which the details are just assumed, whilst hidden (as opposed to visibly not there). I tried this earlier, on another Chloe picture of mine. And just a teensy bit of overbright really works wonders for me!

I did another look with Catwa's Freya head while it's still a gift. That's ending soon (May 24th). I wonder what they'll do with it after that.
