When I chose a mesh head for Christi, I looked at many and finally settled on LAQ because I knew that Christi would play many characters so there would be many heads in her future. With all of the heads available from LAQ, it was somewhat ironic that I chose “Noel”. Ironic because I knew that “Noel” would be the same name I would use for her first character. It seemed fitting.
As time passed though, I began to wonder if I was just a little biased in my choice because of the name. Noel’s face was a bit younger than I really wanted it to be for this character. Many more demos later, I settled on the skin/face named Jolene. It is still a (IMHO) beautiful face but slightly more mature. I was so happy with it that I took several photos in search of one to use for a profile pic.
This was just after I had created a flickr page for Christi to post to that were not involved with the story I was writing. Additionally, I placed one restriction on her – the images posted to her page would receive minimal editing unlike those on Aedan’s page. Level/curve adjustments and repositioning for composition were all that I permitted. Everything else had to be done in the viewer. I think she did quite well 😉
