Ophelia, on NWN, is pointing us to Loons McColumbia’s art on Flickr.
Art… we all have our preferences. If you have ever looked at my Flickr Favorites you have an idea of the type of art I like. You’ll probably suspect Bryn Oh’s work isn’t something likely to appeal to me as it never looks like what I have as favorites on Flickr. But, I am fascinated by Bryn’s work. It always has an ability to pull me in. I always take time to look at it.
The video is a re-render of itself with some missing dialoged added. It seems Bryn’s cat deleted some of the dialog in the previous render. – – Hey… it’s his story and he is sticking to it. Cats are sneaky devious creatures. Continue reading
I’m busy with holidays and work, so not much blogging. But, work-wise I came across an interesting program I needed to for making some unique original textures: MandelBlub 3D, a free 3D fractal generator. It is mentioned in the Advanced Photoshop magazine too.
The art I first came across shown on Deviant Art looked like the type of art I needed for a work project. So, off I went to find the software and generate those textures. It occurred to me that some of these could be awesome for use in Second Life, especially since it appears the Lab is never going to change the TOS to something acceptable to CG Textures and similar suppliers of stock textures.
Getting the program is the easy part. It is pretty much a stand-alone program that does not need to be installed, just unzipped and run. Continue reading
OK so what’s a Petrovsky Flux? It is an in-world art build. That’s nice. The interesting part of this story is the awesome build may vanish from the Second Life world. Ziki’s blog is pointed to as she revisited Petrovsky recently and what Prin Perfect has to say about it.
This is a fun place to explore…
It would not be impossible for a group of concerned residents to form a trust, perhaps each paying 5 dollars a month towards the cost of the sim. Or donating an article to be sold on Marketplace in support of the sim. Or organizing an event once a month that would raise money towards keeping the sim going.
Keeping sims like A Petrovsky Flux alive is NOT Linden Lab’s’ responsibility. It is ours.
That will likely upset some. But, I believe this is as real as it gets. Yeah, Prim Perfect.
The nice looking stuff for the Particle Show is mostly in these videos for now. The first video was published to YouTube in November 2013. But, I didn’t notice any of the newly available particle effects. Still, it is gorgeous.

That is a pretty awesome display of particles. The next one is similar. Continue reading
The Cloud Party people are having a contest for the best art presented in Cloud Party. It looks pretty interesting.
The email they sent says: Continue reading
A new Flufee video is out today. Draxtor describes it:
I [Drax] visited “The Arrival” by Rose Borchovski a few days ago & I have to say: immersive art (or whatever we should call a digital-installation-interactive-performance-3D-persistent-sculpture-space-what-
Several blogs have covered the art of Whiskey Monday. See the following articles for information on who Whiskey Monday is and some of her art.
- Hamlet Au: I Love Everything About the SL Blog of Ms. Whiskey Monday
- Inara Pey: Whiskey’s shots: now to be savored in real life
- Me: My Top Ten Second Life Sites
The notable change is Whiskey is now selling RL prints, giclee, of her Second Life™ art. Giclee is a high end printing process used for fine art. It is expensive, but it lasts. When one cannot afford original art, a giclee is the next best thing.
You can find the art for sale at Fine Art America. Getting the source for giclee printing is a bit of work. So, not all of Whiskey’s art is on Fine Art America. If you find something on Flickr, you can ask that it be uploaded.
Good luck Whiskey.
