Back At One...this is for the men

Hi everyone!

How's life? I hope that you all are doing well and feeling okay.

I'm slowly developing my men pose line. I have a few older male poses. I have become more aware that the number of men poses out there is quite small. I thought of the reasons why and I understand them. But it's frustrating to search for men poses out there if only a few brands make poses specifically for men.

I'm going to try my best to create as many as I can.

This new one is called Back At One. It may sound familiar to some of you. There was this song that came out in 1999, sung by Brian McKnight. The song was on his 5th studio album.




To me, this pose shows a relaxed, proud man who stands tall and strong. He is alone but out of choice.

SLink hands are worn in the photo.

I want to thank my friend, Apollo, for critiquing the uploads I made until this final one. Even if I've been creating for years, it doesn't mean I upload the best version on the first time. I pride myself on the ef…

Call Me Beautiful...new!

Hi everyone!

I've got done re-branding an old pose.

Years ago it was Alluring Gaze pose, now it's Call Me Beautiful pose. It's a lovely, stylish pose but it seemed like I didn't capture it well in photos. Since then, my photography skills have improved and I've realized that with a good angle and by following composition rules, a pose can look amazing on an avatar.

Pose presentation is an art and a difficult skill to learn. I'm happy to say that the past 4 weeks of taking classes at Visionaire Institute have made a big difference in how I view my photography and how I view everything in SL and in the world outside my home.

This is a soft pose, great for closeups. Are you drawn to the eyes? I hope so. The hair and the arm frame her face nicely.

I did edit the arm a bit. Poses can look strange on avatars, especially on the arms. I also added in shadows by stroking with black along the edges and then using gaussian blur. It just adds some contrast and pop to the …

Tchelo's & Glamistry

Hi!

I wanted to blog an item I just got. It's a lingerie set from Tchelo's. It's called Maillot. I just started blogging for them. I met the owner through FFL 2015. It is a great event in SL.

I have been blogging a lot more lately. I also now blog for alaska metro <3, she is a sweetheart.


I'm at the new city at Aftermath. I'm standing outside my new store, still a bit of a mess. I hope to be finished with moving in a few weeks.

I am wearing a new skin. It's from Deeses skins by Natalie Wells. This is Jouryonce in the milky coffee tone. The detail is wonderful and luminous. The inworld store is closed for now due to renovating and updating. When she opens again, she will have appliers for Maitreya and other mesh bodies! Yay! I wear Maitreya Lara so I had to blend in the skin in Photoshop, just painting over with around 66% opacity and then I clone the texture. I cannot wait to get my hands on the appliers!

I'm wearing the latest Maitreya, 3.0. It has som…

New pose for both males and females!

Hi everyone!

I hope you all are well.

I have finally found time to finish a pose. This one is unisex, both male and female avatars can use it. I made it in honor of the late Leonard Nimoy who is famous for being Spock in Star Trek. I hope he is resting in peace now.

Many of you probably recognize the "Live long and prosper" hand sign that he would do. I admire how logical he was. I actually took a Logic class during my university time. I recommend learning formal and informal logic.


As the texture says, this pose works with the Slink Prosper hand. I wear Slink all the time now. I did edit the lines of the body, but not as fully as I would if this were a professional portrait. 
The shirt might look funny. It is non-mesh. For 49L, it looks decent and the closest I could find to a Star Trek uniform.

My Olivia Pope look...It's Handled.

Hi lovelies,

I haven't forgotten about you guys. I am working on some new poses.

Currently, I am working on an Olivia Pope look. She is the main protagonist from the hit series, Scandal. Her trademark phrase is "It's handled" and "We are gladiators."

The skin is from Skin Fair. It is Nadine V2 by Deese's skins. The shape is created by me. The face is not exact but pretty close. I captured the sadness in Olivia. She pretends to be all tough and strong but she is not.

That's it for now.

Have a great weekend!
