Inspiration Recreation

love me like you do

Arora Zanzibar has been running a blogger/photography challenge so I thought I’d tell you guys about it. I think blog or photography challenges and contests are a great way to find inspiration to create or write on your own. For her challenge every month she shares a series of real world images and asks you guys to recreate the images in Second Life.

I haven’t done this challenge, mainly because I am not very good at recreating images from the real world. I do get inspired by real world images, but when I try to make something similar in Second Life, it never really turns out looking like the original. Take today’s blog image, I got inspired by this image on my pinterest by Olga Polozova and decided to see if I can make something like that inworld. It doesn’t even come close to it, lol. But that’s ok, because it was just a thought that was placed in my head and then I ran with it and did it my own way and had fun whilst doing so…so I guess that’s all that really matters.

If you are looking for some more inspiration, definitely check out Arora’s Inspiration Recreation Challenge.

Also, I’m kind of addicted to this song at the moment.

Brokenhearted

On Monday I will be 34 years old and I know as you grow older you are supposed to become more mature and sure of yourself, but my mind tends to focus on all the doubts and shortcomings I have. When you’re young you have all these plans…when you hit certain ages you’ll have accomplished […] Continue reading →

Friendship

Siddean Munro shared a teaser pic of something she’s about to release soon, certainly had me intrigued. There is a lot of speculation of what it might be.

For you, my love is selfless…

I was listening to one of my favorite bollywood songs while working on this: mera ishq sufiyana which translates into “my love is selfless” and the rest of it is just as poetic, if not more. It’s an absolutely beautiful song. Today was the last day of school, so I’m off for the summer. However, […] Continue reading →
