My bad drawings of my worse avatars

Recommended Posts

I actually joined this game like six years ago, but couldn't figure anything out, puttered around for like two days, and quit.  A friend of mine suggested trying it again, so I went in and figured out my login, and arrived looking like this:

outfits_005.png.ed37fdd3d64893b04297607054ae7337.pngtheoriginalmess.thumb.png.ac7ab5321d28ada79ed62057d3adc5da.png

So that was terrible.  The hair, body shape, and skin are supposed to look like me.  I forget where I got the outfit, but everything was free.  In fact, everything I own now was also free.  I haven't spent money on SL yet.  Anyways, I logged in, was surprised to see how awkward I looked, and set out to find new clothes.  I loaded up on free stuff and tossed some together into an outfit that was bad on purpose:

Same skin and body, everything else is new.  I kind of love her.  Eventually I found clothes I liked and settled on this:

outfits_001.png.7af4c59736bc244b6ad11365bc60707c.pngmeirl.thumb.png.bf716d1f3c2c51527649a97203dc0351.png

I actually called this outfit 'me irl' even though it looks nothing like me (except the body shape, still the same).  I think everything I'm wearing in that one is free stuff from Curious Kitties.  If I ever actually spend some real money to get Lindens, it'll be for Curious Kitties stuff.

All my avatars so far were short fat ladies, so I figured I should make an 'attractive' avatar and this happened:

Honestly I think she's kinda ugly but I saved her because she's funny.  I also found a box fulla free fursuits.  A little bit after finding that I figured out that I could take parts of it off and put normal clothes over it, and this amazing mess happened:

outfits_008.png.59de33318471d478e24882049c22f92a.pngsexytron.thumb.png.d03f1754caf15996c30db568a0653552.png

Right now I'm calling her Sexytron.  Her tiny hands are a feature, not a bug.

I settled on this for a simple, casual furry outfit for when I think it's necessary to be a furry.  I have a second outfit of her dressed as a weird stripper but I didn't feel like drawing her twice.

And finally, last night I figured I should have a fat character, a vampire character, and should utilize my box of fursuits more.  So this happened:

outfits_004.png.1a02dce747fe275f446a531cab739d17.pngfatwolf.thumb.png.e834158890cf54726d29493bdfa99c7b.png

I actually took a human-sized wig and spent about an hour rearranging its individual hair chunks to sort of (sort of!) fit on the wolf head.

So that's where my journey is now.  I have a bunch of free junk I haven't even looked at or opened yet, so I think I'm gonna have fun making more ugly weird girls.  Oh, and all these drawings were pretty quick doodles...I promise I can draw good when I wanna.

I think these drawings are pretty good -- far better than anything I could even come close to doing.  :)

those drawings are good. Sometimes when you spend a lot of time the drawing just gets an overworked feel to it.

Last night I decided to wander into a club area and was greeted by friendly people who taught me that alphas get 'added' not 'worn' and gave me some landmarks for places with better freebies.  Picked some up and actually made an avatar that looks like she belongs amongst normal people.

outfits_009.png.26fe2010bd77935fbf5648fb0c128f5a.pngtallgoth.thumb.png.5774d23d9ad0638ab78c8e1f01003869.png

My preference for purple goth stuff is still very prevalent.

She's sitting in a prize camping chair.  When reading guides on Second Life I heard about camping chairs, then searching around for info on them I learned that they are almost non-existent now because of bot abuse.  Makes sense.  So I was pleasantly surprised to see that they still exist in non-linden-giving form.  My current plan is to search around for more and let my societally presentable girl here idle in them while I do other things.

Thanks to everyone for the kind words!

EDIT:

I encountered some cool furries today who were talking about avatars and someone linked this amazing fursuit, which I immediately put on.  I recolored her and gave her a dress, a snack, and a little friend to play with.

Me too! Doubly creative! I love your unique and playful styles and the drawings are very fun and fresh.

Today I tinkered around with a small avatar freebie I got from Curious Kitties.  I guess this isn't what you'd call a mesh avatar, because it still uses the system eyes.  While messing around with what does or does not fit on it properly, I learned that if you remove the original texture from something, you can't get it back.  My first choice of cat ears is now missing its texture, which is fine because its a freebie that I could just go and re-get if I want to.  In the process of googling why I couldn't restore the texture, I also learned the difference between 'prims' and 'perms.'

EDIT: I am slowly becoming a veteran of putting wigs on animals

Sorry to double post, but it's been a while and if I keep editing my last post it'll look like there's nothing new.

bigbonny_002.png.3df8072619f4316e637d18854467e962.pngsakurabun.thumb.png.deec8bdc0e1227c83176b92fccefc14e.png

I'm really proud of my latest girl because she's really cool.  Her head is actually a vase I picked up.  I wanted something different for her top, but all the nice tops I've found have a boob shape built into them and this avatar body doesn't have a boob option.  I'm interested in suggestions if anyone has some?

Snapshot_001.png.394f8bcfc4becc470f076bc877da284d.png

Also: I uploaded my own shirt texture and then put it up for free on the marketplace.  This is just a teeny tiny first step towards actually making things.  What I'm probably going to do is put a bunch of older art onto shirts and offer them for really cheap (or free).  This is the wrong place to chronicle that journey so if I wind up having a lot to say maybe I'll just move everything to a blog instead of using the forums?  I don't know.

I might not have a lot of new outfits/drawings incoming because I wanna take some time to sort through all the freebies I've amassed.  I'm adding tags to the names of as many as I can so that I can search them easier.  I'm also thinking, because I needed to get L$ to enable shop-having, I miiiight spend some money on a dress.  I don't know which one though!  It's a hard question because I have so many 'characters' now and I don't know which one I want to dress.  Here's some I'm considering: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7  I'm tossing some demos into my cart to help me decide.

I'm also interested in any and all suggestions of places to get free stuff, clothes to match the styles of any of my existing avatar characters, names for them, and stuff like that.

Not much to report atm.  I picked up this awesome dress and thought I'd try to turn it into a 'me' avatar...but it doesn't really feel like me.  This outfit is pure lolita when I usually veer more towards the gothy stuff.  I started picking up some free poses so that my screencaps look better, at least!

I hope I don't anger any moderators with the quadruple post.  People are still liking my posts even if they aren't responding, so I assume I have a reason to keep going?  I continue to sort and tag my ridiculously bloated inventory.  While doing so, this look just kind of emerged out of nowhere:

She has mesh eyes (from the big shopping event) and I think they're not quite aligned perfectly, but I'm ignoring that for now.  I really like her color scheme, which honestly isn't too far off from what I usually do with my human avatars, but even with all the black she doesn't feel like a goth.  So I'm counting it as branching out.

Yes, keep posting these whenever you feel like it.  Many of us love it and it isn't against any forum rules.

Good to know, thank you!

I was gifted a Kemono body by an awesome new friend, and tonight I customized it.  I haven't done a proper drawing yet, but we had a small dance party and I did a very quick scribble of it.  I'm putting it in a link because of the vague suggestion of bulge on the one that isn't me.  Not really NSFW but I prefer to always play it safe.  I'll do a proper drawing of my new avatar tomorrow probably.

Love It! Keep on doing the drawings I love to see other people draw and see wat they create

I think that's a safe assumption to make.

We are supposed to have a reason?

Nice drawings! Every avatar is so different. What tablet is that?

 

My drawing tablet?  An old Intuos 3, it's probably going on 10 years old now.  I draw in GIMP 2.6.12

Finally drew my new Kemono!  Nearly everything on her was free, except for the hair, which was 49L$ and came with the glasses as a bonus.  She's about as small as the body shape can get her.  I may change the way here ears and hat rest on her head.

This one is my favorite so far! Stay on the look out for furry hunts, there's a lot of gifts available for the Kemono avatar.
