DIY poses and projector

I always want to try new tips and tricks in SL. My latest project is learn how to make poses and light projector of your own. Pose making I have tried before with Animare (years ago) and DAZ (last summer), now I tested QAvimator.

I have never before really understood what means graphics–> lightning “sun, moon and projectors”. I run to few articles about the projector lights and immediately made my own. It is quite easy if you have the basic knowledge of building and editing. I read Inara Pey’s brilliant tutorial about lightning projectors and Cajsa Lilliehook’s tutorial about lightning, shadows and projectors. Very useful tutorials both!

My first projector is rather simple with a grunge texture. The trick for powerful shadows is to find proper distance and altitude for the projector. Windlight matters also: darker ones work much better with projectors.

My first pose is DIY, basic pose, very me’ish. The second pose is from my Semotion AO stand collection and the third one is DIY: this pose was meant to be combination of a victory march and classic We can do it -posters. I am pretty satisfied how it looks so bye-bye, I am off to make new poses and projectors…projectorpose_001

Don’t smile for the camera – SL Yearbook challenge

yearbook smile challenge

 

I freeze when I see a camera. I smile and laugh a lot, but in font of camera – no way. I did not even try to smile – with HUD it always makes you look just weird and creepy. Parted lips was the solution.

The challenge includes other not-so-familiar part, a yearbook photo. We do not make yearbooks in Finland – although there is a class photo (group and personal) once a year.
