To slide or not slide, that is the question. I think.
After reading Strawberry Singh’s Proportion’s article, I went ahead and ‘slid’ my arms and hands sliders a bit more towards the right and ended up re-doing my entire bodeh hehe.. So this meme should be an easy ‘slide’ into home! (my gawd, the idiotic puns keep coming, sorry folks)
As of June 24th 2013:
Pretty much have kept my height the same this year. The biggest change since May would be the arms and hands. I really have to thank Strawberry for the tip about sizing with Slink Mesh Hands. I’m still tweaking it, but just increasing at intervals of 2 made a huge difference, especially with poses where my hands are near my face. To my ‘untrained’ eye, they look so much better than when I had them sized at 10. So thank you sooooo much for that!

Proportions Challenge Questions:
- Do you try and keep your avatar’s body proportionate and similar to the “average” proportions pictured above? – Try is such a big word for a lazy bum like me. When I decided to start this blog, one of the very first things I did was scrutinize my avatar to see if she was ‘fashion friendly’ i.e, fits mesh without obnoxious pokey holeys, will her skin look wonky in a complicated pose, and will her shape ‘fit’ a specific type of skin.. or visa versa? So yes, I try.
- What do you dislike the most about the SL avatar mesh? – Elbows and how there are limits on how we can show emotions. I have a great face emoter thing, but it would be pretty nifty if there were a more ‘natural’ way to show emotion.. I think this might be a catalyst for a future mesh head purchase.. dunno just yet.
- Does it bother you when you see other avatars that are not proportionate at all? – Bother is such a big word for a lazy bum like me 😛 Neh it doesn’t… the only time I’ve ever been ‘bothered’ by any other avatar was when their prim breasts weren’t rezzed in all the way at a club, so I waited patiently through the visual blockage and viola! They rezzed in the same…. ah the joys of client side bake fail.
- 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? Gosh no. That’s kind of taking the fun out of Second Life isn’t it? We judge, we laugh, we giggle, maybe… and even vent or rant! But seriously in all seriousness, our avatars are a virtual manifestation of who we imagine ourselves to be right? If I think my arms should be long enough to reach around my virtual waist to wipe my virtual bum, well praise be 🙂 And if you’re virtual bottom is blocking my virtual view of a 50% off sale at LeeZu’s? I’m probably going to nudge your proportions out of the way to get my virtual stuff heh.
So here’s a really cool thing that’s happening with Strawberry Singh’s What’s your Digits Challenge Series… Vanessa Blaylock (Irez.me) has opened an exhibit for all who freely wish to share their digital data at Alice in Cornelland! Its a guaranteed hit! While you’re there peruse the nearby galleries and exhibits for a good dose of inspiration 🙂
Aloha till next time!
