How does your avatar look today ?

Recommended Posts

The I'm Too Sexy for this Group group on Flickr and in-world has some fun photos and shares some interesting photo places. I went down to check out their backdrops, which are kinda neat.

It is hard to light well for dark skin.

Hamlet at New World Notes pointed me to some new lighting and Photoshop tutorials from an SL resident, Cassie. I collected the 3 videos she made and added some that have been around a while. Understanding how to do some lighting removes much of the need for Photoshop work.

See what you think: Second Life: Photo Backlighting

BFF was showing me a landscape he was building. For someone who hates the snow, he sure can make a beautiful wonderland.

Trying to catch snowflakes on my tongue... I lack the proper pose, so just pretend, K? K. :)

Yes... a setting in the 3D mouse controls will allow one to 'roll' the camera, that is rotate on the line of sight. But, you have to be using a 3D mouse like SpaceNavigator.

I might have to dig out my old SpaceNavigator.  I bought one years ago when there was a special discount for SL users.

I gave the new HUD an admittedly quick look last night, and I'm going to confess to being completely confused by it. I'm sure it will become clearer with time and practice, but I'm hoping that Strawberry Singh or someone produces a tutorial soon.

For one thing, I couldn't figure out how to just turn it off!

(Sorry, I'm hopeless at this kind of thing. Don't even get me started on using remotes in RL.)

Try searching for "Genus head" on Youtube. I have found a couple of videos about this last update.

Strawberry Singh said on her blog that she will be doing a tutorial soon: https://strawberrysingh.com/2018/11/15/genus-project-head-update-powder-pack-genus-giveaway/ . And even if this link doesn't have the tutorial about the animation HUD, it also worth a look because she is having a Powder Pack giveaway for Genus heads.

Nude at the Eiffel Tower, that's bold. I don't think I would try that at ground level, now  up hiding in the tower itself that i could do.

For selfies this is true. But for other stuff I sit on a box and then rotate the box Old Torley trick :)

Edit to add: in mouselook LOL

Hey i've been playing wow lately why not grab an avatar mod to match my druid cat form? Though... my druid ingame is a guy. and they don't have the fangs of ashamane version in sl... yet.

That "guy" thing . . . ?

I think you may be doing it wrong. ? ?

Although it's in some ways frustrating because very much unrehearsed, I take heart from this one by Cassie Middles because she sometimes sounds almost as confused as I was.

(Almost. No one is quite as confused as me.)

I used to play on the same Harry Potter sim as her years ago, didn't know she became a blogger o.O SL is such a small world.

I was digging old stuff in my inventory. I found these "Tahitian" items, so I decided to decorate my mesh avatar with them.
ARC is 150 857. Not too bad for nice special outfit to wear occasionally.

Well, here in Australia it's not, but I like to get away to my snow sim in an attempt to escape the heat.

Woot woot! Another Aussie :D

Love your pup!

was toying with different windlights...even went as far as to crank up my graphics - which could have ended badly. But, the LL Gods smiled down upon me and spared me the crash of a lifetime long enough for me to snap this and a few other pictures. This one I love the most. :)
