How does your avatar look today ?

Recommended Posts

This is the kind of lighting and shadow I was trying to achieve (unsuccessfully) earlier. One of the things I've discovered is that what appears on my screen in the viewer, and in the preview panel for snapshots, is not always exactly what the resulting png file looks like. In particular, I have to crank my Shadow Blur setting to about double the supposed "maximum" (i.e., 8 rather than 4) for it to really appear in the png file.

Is that usual? Is there something I need to set on my computer, or in my viewer, so that what appears on screen is reflected properly in the snapshot?

Did you get the slightly off-kilter look in Photoshop? There's no way to do that in the viewer, is there?

You can rotate the screen in Black Dragon.

I want to steal Matt's windlights!

I have no idea how to do a wolf whistle, but if I could I would insert one here.

(And then probably apologize for it.)

Found it here:

https://marketplace.secondlife.com/p/neve-coat-snow-nuetral/10675697

It was either this or the one with plaid collar ;)

Oh boy Angelina you really shouldn't have done that............. :)

Now I know about Neve............

Now I have to go through all their stuff.  I'm up to page 26 of 154 and spending too much money already.........

What really worries me is how many stores are still out there for  shoes, hair, dresses and so on that I know nothing about...........................

The Neve style is nice and restrained and some of the stuff is 'must have'. It's that simple.    So it's back to the Marketplace.........haha!

Found a little time to spend with the sister and grown kid who i haven't seen too recently.  Always a fun time with the girls!

Yay for sweater season! Raw shot, only cropped. Been playing with DIY spotlights -- here in one of the Weekend Ruiner sets. Daeberethwen Arbenlow has a great tutorial video showing how to make some simple spotlights. Video embedded below...

Heads-up for anyone looking for a new photoshoot location. The Baroqued Gothical event has hundreds of tiny photo boxes - both dark and light (dark around the outer areas, light in the inner areas). The event booths are on the lower area, but stacked above each one are a couple  of differently-themed photo areas (there are a few on the lower area, too). Worth a visit before the event closes on Nov 25th :)

She looks like she is mad that it is cold. Maybe where she is it is just cold and damp, and cloudy with no pretty snow to play in.

I'm not entirely sure what I'm doing with this one. I know what I want to do, conceptually, but . . . not there yet.

Anyway, sort of a self-indulgent experiment.

I couldn't find anyone nice enough to tie me to the tracks!

When I saw your pose, I figured you had untied yourself and just can’t be bothered to jump from the tracks. “It’s all just so tiresome, maybe if I look away, the train will breeze right past me.” Then, at the last moment, someone pushes/pulls you from the tracks. But, it’s too late - your dress is ruined.

The best thing about cold weather is that it provides the perfect excuse for hot chocolate...

That's as good a narrative as any, Love, and probably better than any I could have come up with.

But why haven't you volunteered to be the villain of the piece?

A detest mustachios, which a proper villian must have in such a scene, twirling it vainly fir effect.
