Second Life - how close am I getting with my current avatar?




I'm no artist, and the default system for designing avatars has a lot of limitations, but let's have a look. How's this, I wonder, as a caricature cum idealisation? Hmmm, not too bad I think ...

Very cool! I myself have a somewhat idealized version of myself as an avatar. But right now the "big guy" sliders and such don't really capture my bear-like shape.

I'd be happy if they'd just let me have some eyebrows - not that I want prominent ones or anything.

Nice hair Russ ;)

Hi Kris! At the moment, the hair is fairly lifelike. ;)

LOL, I really need a haircut - or maybe it's better this way. *SHRUG*

Hmmm, I'm not too sure about the hair myself. Give it another five years and hopefully you'll have the hair modelling that they used in the latest Final Fantasy movie.

Let's face it, I'm just in denial of the fact that, in real life, my (once) thick mop of hair has thinned a li'l over the years. Dammit. OTOH, I don't mind it going grey.

All right, I've adjusted the hairstyle just slightly, but I really need the options to get better, as Jose says. Or I need someone more artistic to work on the problem.
