  1. SECONDLIFE is AWESOME … but it tends to get a bad wrap! Some people in RL have come to think of it as a place for freaks & pervs, because it is, to them … ALL ABOUT the ('Pixel') SEX!! NOT EVERYONE that comes to SECONDLIFE (SL) is focused on 'pixel sex'. There are people who come to SL with a plan; they come for purely creative and intellectual pursuits; people who form relationships that are based upon sameness in goals, attitude, thought and spirit. Their goals are broad and more productive and, overall, mutually beneficial for everyone in the SL Community, no matter what role or fantasy others choose to engage in. These individuals, the "Realistic Dreamers", they look to make their Virtual Life (VL) benefit, not only their VL and Real Life (RL); but also the VL and RL of 'everyone connected to and/or supportive of' these "Realistic Dreamers". These "Realistic Dreamers" are focused on making their SL pay for itself through their creativity; and their success in achieving these efforts, often times, also build/fuel the economy of our VL's. How? and Who are these "Realistic Dreamers", you might ask? The "Realistic Dreamers" are every resident that provides any of the quality homes, goods, services, products, textures, events, fashions, scripts, sims, regions, etc. … that we enjoy! In supporting them, we support ourselves; we help make it possible for them to expand their efforts to be even more creative and, in enabling them to extend their goal of increased productivity, they can extend, to those of us who have the interest, the opportunity of employment within their ventures as part of their team(s). So I see Second Life, it's potential to be a place of productivity … rather than over sexuality! Yeah, … it's true, the "Realistic Dreamers" are human and may have needs too; but NOT ALL are DRIVEN by it! Had they spent most of their time 'in the bed' rather than at the drawing board or 'more time chasing tail' than 'actually chasing their dreams' … we'd still be trying to make our own 'prim clothing', still be living in 'Flintstone looking homes', walking like ducks … and 'emoting sex' rather than using animations! So hat's off to the "Realistic Dreamers" that got our VL's off to a more 'Realistic' existence!! Thank you for FOCUSING more on your personal "Realistic" dreams than your dreams of your (sexual) passion. Nevertheless, for some, in addition to their goals, yes, … for some there is a need for companionship … and that is private, … as well as okay; and I am sure' …, or I'd like to believe, that … 'that is as well and discretely done, as their other objectives! For it has been said: "All work and NO play … (makes for a very dull and uneventful existence)! I get it, ...but here, again … this is entirely personal. NO JUDGEMENTS! I began my journey through SL in 2008, … and it has taken me all this time to finally arrive as one desirous of being a "Realistic Dreamer". I will share more about my new found direction later. Right now, I want to take a break to thank you, … so 'Thank YOU' for having read this far. If I haven't bored you to death already, I hope you will follow me … as I continue to share what I have observed and come to (better) understand about SL and other Virtual Worlds; but my focus here will mainly be Second Life. Thank you again … until next time … 'stay well, stay safe and stay productive!' - Joleene Constantine-Solare (aka, littlebittieone resident).

  3. Hi all! I just remembered a little game from over at SLU back then which was inspired by Chroma Key: you would shoot your avatar in front of a green or blue Screen, and others would put it into another situation or place by photo manipulation. Here's the Before/After pic from Wikipedia: And here's an example of what it could look like using an avatar: I know, it's not perfect, but I was in a rush.😒 Anyways: because I'm basically still in this outfit, I already prepared a green screen pic for you creative folks to work with: I'm curious what you can come up with, and hope to see more people offering their avatars to work with, as well.

  7. I've seen groups like these, and even individuals who sport this sort of badge on their products, and even belong to groups regarding this. What exactly is an 'original mesh'? I consider an original mesh to be a piece that is concepted by, modeled by, and presented by the artist himself, albeit 'their' style and finished piece inspired by everything around them and their life experience. However, these individuals and groups seem to want to apply "100% original mesh" to mesh pieces that simply replicate already existing products from the real-world, some even going so far as to put the actual brand names on the textures for the objects they create... Considering it is very easy for a '3D Artist' to simple 'trace' from a photograph, or even model directly from it.. where is the actual orginality? One day I opened up Illustrator and 'traced' a snapshot of my avatar, in a pose from in-game that I did not create myself, and saved the resultant product as a 'work'. Is it really original? Well the avatar design might be, the clothes I chose (even those aren't mine either)... Is the resultant vector file and 'original work', or just a reproduction into vector form of an existing artwork? The difference is, I wouldn't present it as an 'original work'. The awesome thing about SL, and the VALUE one offers to users of it will be, will be in your creativity in presenting an object. There are more than enough crates, barrels and park benches out there - one would think why bother modeling those again? Now modeling a park bench out of metal plumbing pipes, welded onto bicycle frames at either end, concepted (through sketches and scribblings) by the artist themselves, then modeled to that, could certainly qualify as "100% original mesh". I prefer using 'unique design' or 'innovative design' rather than '100% original" because as an artist, I am the sum of all the sights, sounds and experiences in my life, and everything goes into a big pot, gets stirred and churned and matured, and comes out in the form of a mental library in which I can create new works. Going to the IKEA catalogue and replicating all the trendy furniture in it, uploading the model and textures (sometimes with a brand name or gaming the system using brand-like names), then claiming it is an 'original mesh".. well that's a pretty loose definition... Perhaps instead of using 'badges' or icons or claims in your listings and telling us how original you are... How about SHOW us. Have a good day, hope you're inspired to go that one (or two) extra steps in your creations. PS. Other thoughts: Do most consumers care about creativity and originality? Or do they want products in VR that may not be able to get in RL? What's the line drawn when it comes to claiming work as your own or 'original' anyway?
