I have so much to blog but real life work has me swamped so I thought I would do a quick post sharing an artistic portrait of my avatar that was created by the talented Martina G. also known as Abigale Heron in Second Life.
Abigale is a freelance illustrator and comic artist who has been doing freelance commissions for years. Now she is offering her talents to us Second Life residents at a very affordable rate. For full details about what she is offering and her rates, check out her flickr page. You can also see more of her work in her SL Sketch Commissions Flickr Album as well as her DeviantArt page.
Thank you Abby, I’m so happy with the portrait! <3
There are a few other things I’ve been wanting to share with you guys, so here is a quick weekly roundup!
- BerryArt – I have so much respect and envy for illustrators and artists because I can’t draw at all! I love getting my avatar’s portrait drawn by them. I’ve had two other artists draw pictures of my avatar in the past so I thought I should create a special category on my blog called BerryArt where I’ll share images of all of the artistic portraits that have been done of me. You can get them to do your portraits as well!
- Dunk-a-Linden and Hug-a-Linden – Linden Lab is having an event today, February 12 from 10am-12pm and 2pm-4pm SLT where you can hug or dunk a Linden as well as send virtual roses and candy hearts to your Second Life friends and sweethearts. The proceeds from the sales will go to The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research. It’s happening right now so head there soon before it’s over!
- Leap Into Love Snapshot Contest – Linden Lab is also holding a Valentine’s contest which ends February 29th, 2016. Enter for a chance to win L$10,000 , L$5,000, L$3,000, or L$1,000!
- 7th Annual Oscar Fashion Photo Contest Announcement – Speaking of contests, don’t forget that Harper Ganesvoort is holding her annual Oscar Fashion contest again which ends on February 28th, 2016. This year she is offering L$50,000 in prizes so it’s definitely something you’ll want to check out!
- The Drax Files Radio Hour show #103: project bento – The Drax Files podcast with Jo Yardley and Draxtor Despres has returned and they have kicked off this season with a feature on Project Bento.
- The Drax Files: World Makers [Episode 35: Project Bento] – Draxtor also released the 35th episode of his World Maker series on youtube which focused on Project Bento as well. If you are not familiar with Project Bento, I suggest you watch this short but very informative video which goes into detail explaining what it is and features several Lindens and Second Life content creators.
