Save me...and feeling helpless

Hi all!

I am glad to be back once again with a new pose. I will be creating more regularly now that I have an internet connection once again.

For awhile I have been feeling hopeless and like I wanted to be saved. Save me pose is partly inspired by the song, Save me by Remyzero. The song was the theme from Smallville. That show started out great but somewhere down the line it started getting weird. I don't know...maybe when Jimmy Olson was killed off I began to lose interest.

Anyway, the song has always struck a deep chord in me. I felt the pain and helplessness in it....that overwhelming urge to be saved by a hero/heroine and just fly away. At some point in our lives, we want to find escape and peace inside ourselves.

If we just reach out and ask, help will come. Being silent and moaning in our heads never helped. I am the brooding type and I know that I can only get better if I tell another person that I'm not feeling okay. It is okay to admit when we're not feeling good about ourselves.

If you notice, I have included two angles of the same pose. I couldn't decide on which angle I liked best. The beauty of a pose and in photography is that you can look at it from different angles and it'll still look great. This is true especially in SL.

Here is the song:

This is one of the most difficult poses I have ever made. SL avatars don't stretch well. I hope someday that will change. So I did have to edit around the crotch area. I use GIMP so that means I had to use the Iwarp tool, in Photoshop it is the liquify tool. SL still hasn't improved the look of the avatar, I hope someday they do.

As always I attach my style card:

hair: EMO-tions Windblown in black
lingerie: ~Blacklace~ Kiana White Bridal Mesh Corset set
Slink mesh hands casual
Slink mesh flat feet

Have fun and enjoy the art!

Kiss You All Over...mixing the old with the new

Hi lovelies!

I'm pleased to have finished a new couple pose. It is my last exclusive set for Pose Fair! I have been thinking and thinking about what to show at that huge event and this is what I have come up with. I am so very very excited! It won't be in my store until May 3rd.

I was inspired by the the song Kiss you all over, sung by Exile.  My theme for Pose Fair is about passion and wild love. This song really inspired me to try to capture the ardent regard a man has for his woman. He just wants to hold her and kiss her "till the night closes in."

This is my first product photo that is in black and white. I wanted to highlight the closeness of the couple. The shadows stand out more. Black and white forces the viewer to focus more on shape and form. Sometimes color can distract too much from the model. Many of the best photos have a limited range of colors in them.

Julio is wearing a new skin from Aeros, Teghran. Pi  Rain released it at Skin Fair which ran last month and it is now available in his mainstore. The detail and shading is so brilliant.

On her:
hair:      EMO-tions *Windblown* in deep black
lingerie: ~Blacklace~ Tender Caress in  Blue
shoes: Slink flat barefeet

On him:
skin: Aeros Teghran
hair: MADesigns HAIR ~ BRAD ~ Black
pants: #EROSION-#Leather pants EROS Black in M
shoes: (epia) Dress Shoes Black

Have a great week and be back soon with a new release!
