As I already said to a lot of people: Second life offers so many ways for someone like me to be creative... I like to design and build my own house / studio / shop. I like to design clothing and I recently picked up photographing in SL again. At first there were the pictures of a model (usually Ellen) wearing the clothing...
Then I came across the SL community in Flickr and was amazed by the sometimes intriguing and beautiful photo's posted there. Seeing what some artists can do in and with second life got me curious as to what I could do with it myself and a little help for photoshop :). Right now I am still experimenting, but really like the pictures taken so far.
Taking snapshots in second life and post processing them is fun, but the real fun starts when you post your images on Flickr in order to share your creations with others. I can spend hours clicking through fascinating collections and great artwork. It is cool to see people like your work too. To the right you see a picture of Lilith Lunardi, taken by herself, while wearing the Ava set she bought from me! Designing these sets is fun, people buying you creations is cool... A picture taken by a satisfied costumer is very, very cool!
I have created some designs up until now that have not been finished. some of these designs are intended as latex outfits. Only thing I need right now is a good template of the latex-shine. I'm working on that, but it is nowhere near finished. In SL I came acros Nyoko's bodyoil which can be worn on your body, or even over your clothes. They give your avi this body oil shine. This 'oil' combined with one of the outfits I created earlier, makes look a bit more like I intended it to look...
New item, not finished
Just updated a new piece. It still needs some work, maybe a few extra textures... On the other hand, I like it like this, clean and sharp :) I'll see...
OnRez new SL-viewer
OnRez is planning to release a new Second Life viewer this week! According to the OnRez blog, this viewer will have a better user's experience, it will have a built in suite for OnRez services, give the user a better navigation in-world and will house an internal web browser.
This is good news for those who finds the current SL-viewer difficult to use. If this viewer delivers the same quality as the OnRez website is doing, this might be a potential hit for both SL-users, as SL merchants!
shop at Nedben
The shop at Nedben is currently being rebuilt by the land owner. I don't know when we can reopen our doors at that location. Until then you can always go to alternate locations to buy our products!
