I am looking to create my 1st custom avatar but even after several days of web searching and reading articles, I am finding the process intimidating. I haven't found a clear comparison of the different body forms or of brands/manufacturers, the same goes hands/feet/heads. And I am struggling with having a clear sense of the proper order to follow in the customization process. If I purchase a body, does this include breasts and ***** since they are definitely body parts? Sadly, my lack of understanding extends to the following as well: The avatar height aspect, The physics/animations, The ability or lack of ability to customize various parts, The foot system (high/mid/flat and rigged vs non-rigged,) And the HUDs and Makeup.
I would be ever so grateful for recent guides, walk-throughs and advice articles that would help educate me on these various aspects. I would also be quite amendable to someone acting as my guide through this process, I do not expect anyone to hold my hand through this but I would appreciate the company and advice of someone adept at avatar customization. I have Linden $s to spend, would prefer to keep the entire process under $3000, and if I could do it for less than $2500 while creating a quality avatar I would be even happier.
Thank you so very much for your time in reading and replying to this post, I look forward to your advice and suggestions.
