Doc came up with the idea of having an SL Thriller zombie on Combat Cards as a way to incorporate some SL history. I asked the famed Eggy if he would model, and he agreed. We hadn't set anything up, but when I logged in yesterday I went to Spangle and made a blank screen. I IMed asking him when he would be available and he replied, "Now," and dropped onto my head. He quickly changed into a zombie and started dancing, and I began snapping. "This will take ages as it's high-res." "Are you done yet?" "It's not easy being a super-model." He went away and shaved and came back and we finished up.
I had 9 raw Eggies on a blue screen, and went off looking for backgrounds. I wanted urban, neutral, not too dark. I started in Nova Albion, went to Suffugium, Manhattan, Devil's Moon, Midnight City, and Chaos, wandering part of the time with Enjah. In Chaos as we sat at a sidewalk table she spotted a video and pointed out that the girl in it had fake breasts. I never would have noticed, and in fact had released my camera constraints and was taking a picture 4 blocks away.
I tried a few background and altered the eggies and backgrounds a bit... Finally we had 3 to choose. The final one would get polished up and the others would go into the scrap bin.
The final card? It's not finished yet :-D
