I’ve seen many beautiful images created at the Kindred Spirits sim recently so, having a day off, I decided to send Noel to investigate. She came back with many images and I expect several will be making appearances in the coming week or so but this was the one that captivated her the most.
The ‘official’ introduction of Robert along with a tune to fit his character….in part.
This ended up being a fun image. As mentioned in an earlier post about Robert’s skin, I had to fix the embedded highlights first. It was initially a challenge until I figured out that both layers generated using frequency separation had to be cleaned up. It wasn’t simply a matter of fixing the color on the low freq layer but there was also texture in the high frequency layer that was affecting the visible color in it’s own way.
Being a fan of so many things Eastern for the last several years a post on the Secondlife Blog about a display taking Chinese Ink Drawings to the virtual world immediately caught my eye. It seemed like a perfect place for Kyashi to visit so I sent her on her way with no time to change her clothes.
What she saw was truly beautiful and she brought back several images of which I’m certain one or two will be used as a background in the future.
Meet Max. Max is my first attempt to grant my RL Maine Coon a tenth life, be it in SecondLife. This image was actually the logical conclusion to several areas of Photoshop that I’ve been concentrating on lately: hair and skin. You might ask “skin?” and no, it’s not obvious. In addition to that was the feeling that I needed to create something that I could also post to flickr since it’s been a few weeks.
I took my first attempt at writing a story for this format over the summer. Like everything else, it was a learning experience…one that told me I had much to learn before continuing. In fact, I am currently regrouping a bit.
However, being Aedan’s work associate, she will be in the story early
It was at about this same time a year ago that the great amount of creativity of SL that had found a home on Flickr really hit home for me. At that time, I knew I wanted to participate in that creativity even if I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do. If I did nothing else, learning to use the tools available to capture images similar to what I saw others doing would be enough for me.
