Failure to Launch

“How in the Seven Seas do you get this thing to go?!”

Trying to smother her laughter, she called back down. “You just pull on the reins and point it in the direction you want to go.”

A frustrated sigh left her lips, “This is ridiculous! Why can’t we just swim to where we want to go? We have perfectly good fins and there’s really no need for these fish.”

“Oh but this is so much more FUN!” Laughing at her friends frustration she called back, “If I can figure this out, you certianly can!”

“He seems much more interested in doing his own thing as opposed to going where I would like.”

Perhaps they would have to save their adventure for another day….

May you walk in the light of the crystal…

(MOAR FANTASY PICTURES! And bc I just learned that Fantasy Gatcha Carnival is open now, you’ll be overrun with my fantasy posts. Sorry for that in advance.)

Anyone who has played or is familiar with FFXIV will understand the title of my post. As your character moves through the storyline you come to learn that you are chosen and blessed by the Crystal i.e Mother Hydalelyn. I’ve been flopping back and forth between SL and FF a lot so a crossover post between my two “MMO worlds” seemed appropriate and the awesome crystal poses from We ❤ RP was the perfect element to tie the two together. (Yeah okay I’m a huge nerd lol.)

Protecting the Kingdom

Protecting the Kingdom I love fantasy RP stuff and the large RP community of Second Life was one of the aspects that drew me here. While I spend a lot of my time in SL on a human avatar, it’s not uncommon to see me running around with elf ears or fangs since vampire and elf are my favorite races to be. Protecting the Kingdom (2)

Been playing Skyrim and Final Fantasy, and now after shopping this month’s We ❤ RP, it’s safe to say I’ll be elfing it out for awhile. Also….let me just say how excited I am that I found fantasy type armor than isn’t a breast plate and a thong! I feel like this set is the right combination of sexy and practical. I am all for being skimpy when it calls for it, but in terms of armor I prefer to be at least semi-realistic lol.

The breeze whispers to me, as if from a dream…

Snapshot_007My strating point. I took this picture about 50 different times, changing the lighting, the angle and resolution but was having so many issues with Depth of Field. Everytime I turned it on, the edges of my hair went all pixelated and fuzzy for some reason. I did my best trying to smooth it out in PS and mask over the goofy edges but it just wasn’t looking right. I got the fabulous suggestion from a PS help group to create my own DoF in photoshop, off I went on an editing frenzy. Turning off DoF made a world of difference and I took picture 1 with hair and picture 2 without (for masking purposes).

After applying lens blur filter on the bottom layer, masking the blur back in with a gradient and of course the masking the arm back in from behind the hair. I also filled in the hair using hair brushes and drawing in strands with the freeform pen tool since some of the “wisps” were lost in the blur. I’m very happy with the end result and it was much less trying to edit than my original. A breeze, a wisp, a dream..-Kaiden –

Darling it’s better, down where it’s wetter

Feelin’ fishy today. (Also I’m attending a mermaid event so it inspired me to take pics.) Haven’t been able to take many photos since Firestorm was PMSing on me. Been on a new viewer for just over a week now and things are looking up. YAY!
