Yesterday I spent time working on a matching face/chest skin for Oz, in Light and Dark. I haven't tackled below the belt yet, lol. Usually Oz has the Maori tattoo. The faceskin creeps me out a bit, so I think I'll probably go back to the face tattoo.
I went to an art opening in Second Life yesterday. It was more fun,actually, than going to a real-life event. It was real-life artists and real-life artwork, but no hanging about nervously trying to remember who people are. In virtual worlds your name is hanging over your head.
I decided to start the nether-Oz because I like puzzles (working on a 2d template that will be wrapped around a "body" is perplexing). I found a leg somewhere on the internet. I found buttocks without difficulty. I couldn't find the backs-of-male-legs so I thought I'd look for feet. That'll be a snap, no? Holy Toejam, Batman -- that's the password to a whole world of foot-fetishists' pornography that took me aback. I just hope they wash their feet before AND after. I searched for something else I thought was innocuous and came up with the most horrible wound pictures. I should say I don't mind if something is pornographic particularly -- within certain parameters. I'd say, however, that the pornography I saw today while I was looking for legs and feet (haven't even started with any naughty bits) was a) repetitive, and b) tacky. Tiff is right -- it is funny to see what people think is sexy. I came across a website selling "sexy" shoes -- sheesh, judging by the opening page the same things have been considered sexy since about 1930. Include: mules, high heels, platforms, clear vinyl, marabou, straps -- all in the same pair!!! It's a wonder our ancestors managed to breed at all. Of course, they probably did better than the foot fetishists even without having access to these vast, dark realms of mediocre internet pornography. I decided it must be a kind of AOL-MickeyD's-Walmart idea of sexiness behind all this. It's really rather simple-minded. Anyway, Oz's skin is partially complete, but it will have to wait for another day.
