PROPORTIONS CHALLENGE

This Sunday it was all about shape and numbers in Strawberry Singh Monday Meme Challenge. And yes I am working on a Monday challenge on a Sunday so that means I am behind and trying to catch up before Miss Berry gives us another challenge tomorrow.
 Not only shape but shadows played a big part today in making these pictures. Shadows and lighting make or break a picture and as you can see in the 2 pictures below  it gives a total different look and feel to the image.
So the challenge this week is all about shape and I got to say I did a lot of pulling and tugging on my shape and looking back to old pictures on my blog you will see I changed a lot in those years. But the last, I think 6 months I did not changed anything and  I finely feel I ” at home “in the shape I got now.

Meme instructions ( by Berry herself ): Share your avatar’s digits (if you want to, not necessary) and then copy paste the following questions and answers into your post, remove my answers and input your own. Don’t forget to share your link in the comments of this post and if you decide to share your numbers, the flickr group for the Digits challenge is here: http://www.flickr.com/groups/digits

1.    Do you try and keep your avatar’s body proportionate and similar to the “average” proportions pictured below? – I tried to make my shape look realistic as possible. Only today I looked more specific and found out my arms could be a little longer so I edit them.

2. What do you dislike the most about the SL avatar mesh? – Looks fine to me even feet and hands did look fine to me until…. mesh hands and feet did there entrance and I got to say it is a lot of work each day to match skins on hands and feet but it  looks so much better.

3. Does it bother you when you see other avatars that are not proportionate at all? – No it does not  “bother” me but I got to say some woman avi’s look “frugly” to me = freaky & ugly at the same time with sad looking  faces that look like they bin to the plastic surgeon a couple of times to many, but hell it is there sl and if that is what makes them happy good for them.

4. Even though this is a virtual world and people can be anything they want to be, do you feel when they are in human form, they should try to keep their proportions close to average? – No what ever rocks your boat is my motto just because it is a virtual world everybody needs to look how they want to look That is what makes a virtual world so appealing to me.

CHILL BABY

Today I did some juggling and sliding with some  windlight settings. The second picture is a windlight setting made my Strawberry Singh called diamond and here is the link to download is yourself. I am also trying to make sense of the photoshop program and I got to say it is not easy in the matter of fact it is damn hard. Looking on Google for tutorials made the confusion even bigger  because in tutorials where there is talking they babble to much.
 Finely I found this blog called Kevin & Amanda  where there is no talking but pictures with an easy explanation even I could understand.
Enjoy your weekend  and remember to shop until you drop.

WEIRD QUESTIONS MEME

Time fly’s when you are having fun and today is the last day of my annual vacation. After 3.5 weeks of concerts , festivals and relaxation it is time to go back to the office tomorrow.  Because of the vacation activities I am behind on Strawberry Singh Monday Meme Challenges and I am playing catch up today.

Monday Meme Instructions ( by Strawberry herself ) : Copy and paste the following questions and answers into your blog post, delete my answers and input your own. Remember to leave your link in this meme’s comments so we can all come by, read your answers and secretly judge you.

  1. Which was the last sim you visited? (Other than your home)  “”D!va”” hairshop because I just love the Summer feeling on that sim to take pictures.
  2. Does your avatar look like the real you?  Sure I live in the Playboy mansion and play sl when Hugh you know the man in the robe is feeling tired and went to bed early witch happens a lot lately due to his age. Duuuh naaaah don’t look like my avi I wish and aren’t we all wishing here ?
  3. Do you wear underwear/panties underneath your clothing when out and about on the grid? Nope why should I do that ? I save  the sl  environment and try to get as little laundry as possible  I don’t have time to do domestic chores me being a shopaholic.
  4. If you won a million linden dollars, what would be the first thing you buy inworld? I would buy a homestad and pay tier for the time to come so I can totally bonkers in decorating and re-decorating over and over again.
  5. Have you ever bought something in SL and then realized afterwards that you had already owned it from before? This is the story of my second life for sure and the consequence of my shopping addiction.
  6. Have you ever done anything in Second Life that would be considered illegal in real life?   Yes I did some trespassing on private  properties to get some ideas how I want my place to look like As long the security system or the bouncer are not kicking me out I am in looking over my shoulder afraid for the owners to return trying not to make a mess of the place in the mean time.
  7. If you could go out on a date with any other avatar, who would it be? Date ? .. in like getting  a pixel  meal and going to see a pixel movie ? Sorry not in to dating in here.
  8. Who, in your opinion, was the greatest avatar to ever slive?  Neva Christall I love her natural look and I am blown away by her amazing pictures every time I see them.
  9. What is the most embarrassing thing you’ve ever done inworld?  I have sent out of class while I was role playing a school girl giving the teacher a lecture about legalizing weed.
  10. If your avatar had a mind of its own, what do you think it would say to you?  “Girl get a grip on yourself getting me all those clothes. How many dresses and wigs do you really think I need ? “

OMG I am soooooooo happy !!My pc got a new graphic card installed and I see the  second life world so much better now. I can even walk and move in ultra settings. There is so much to learn now about making pictures with shadows and stuff so I show you my first try on the beach. The 2 pics in the middle   were made yesterday before the pc transformation and there really is a difference in quality for sure  and making pictures now is not a source of frustration anymore.

POSH PICKNICK

Hello I am back I  had a great  festival , saw the Prodigy life and they kicked ass let me tell you that and I danced my ass off like crazy. Because I needed my rest after the party days , ( I am not that young anymore you know ) I am a “little” behind on my blogger to do list but I am going to try to catch up this week.
Almost at the end of my vacation ( need to get my ass back at the office on Thursday ) I am getting an upgrade on my pc tomorrow and I can not wait and to be honest not a minute to early. Taking this 2 pictures took me almost the whole Sunday with horrible crashes and a constant disappearing  avi.  My graphic card need more space so I can see buildings and far sides as well as shadows and go to high graphic without problems and maybe juggle myself to edit my own windlight settings. Now all of this is not possible and it drives me bunkers and totally nuts.
Maybe I give it another try tomorrow to get some pictures done with the old graphic situation.  I bring my pc to the wonder doctor on Thursday morning !!
Is it Tuesday already ? ( Style card will be add laterssss )

MY SL MOVIE POSTER CHALLENGE

Strawberry’s Monday Meme are getting more fun each week and this weeks meme got all the creative juices  flowing in world. You really need to visit the flickr page to see how creative and funny second life residents are. My favorite director is Quentin Tarantino so I made a second life Pulp Fiction movie poster I hope you like it. This will be a last post for  at least 1 week. I am having vacation and going to see my daughter for some days and going to the Indian Summer Festival to see some great DJ’s and the Prodigy live so no time to sit behind my PC. Another thing is that my pc need an update specially on my graphic card so that will be done in the mean time. Have fun and shop until you drop while I am gone.
