Dolly Dream Vacation

Thankful today wasn’t so blisteringly hot that I couldn’t be on the computer. Still, what I wouldn’t give right now to be on a cruise somewhere with a nice tropical breeze keeping me cool.

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.

Boobs for Breast Cancer

Because why not? It’s not the first (and certianly not the last) time I’ve bared my breasts for BCA month. LOL. It started as a joke some years ago on a hostess job and it ended up being a thing to raise money.

Boobies for BCA

All giggles aside though, this post is for the mothers, sisters, wives, friends, co-workers. For the mother-in-law that I will never meet, never have. The Susan G. Komen 3-day was just here in Philly last weekend. Maybe one day I’ll get the energy to walk the 60 miles but for now, this is how I show my support.

Bringing Sexy Back

Bringing Sexy BackPlaying around in photoshop with PS painted hairs. I added few strands here and there to fill it in a bit but 99% of the hair is a premade PSD file.

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 –
