If you have been following the comic for a while you know that I started it with the help of several of my friends. They put together the avatar, we set up photo shoots and I did the rest.
That format works only when everyone’s schedules line up and they so very rarely do. So for the past year I have been working on getting each of the characters onto an account that I control, so that I can take the photos whenever my weird ass schedule will let me.
Unfortunately, I can’t always copy the original avatar piece for piece. Sometimes items aren’t for sale anymore, and sometimes I want to upgrade to mesh, which means I may have to do a whole overhaul because mesh clothing and pieces can vary wildly from the original look.
I’ve been lucky so far.
The latest project is a new avatar for the Prophet!
Here is the base SL Avatar that I started with. I figured why not have something I could use? I’m certain at some point I’ll need a zombie. So let’s go zombie!
This is not, however, anywhere near what I need for our lovely Prophet.
Face first. I will be using her heavily in the upcoming pages so I wanted to make sure she got a mesh body and face. I’ll put the style card at the end, but I LOVE the Maitreya mesh body and CATWA has the best mesh heads I’ve found. The hair and horns, iconic for our mystic, were luckily available. I had to fudge the jewelry a little bit, hopefully it won’t be super noticeable.
I gave her some new makeup as the skin I wanted to use doesn’t have appliers for Maitreya. So I went with a beautiful skin by ItGirls and I LOVE it. The tattoos are from the Tribal Face Tattoos line by *CATY*
The clothing obviously is completely different than the original prophet. But nobody wears the same clothing day in and day out, so I was less worried about that. It’s a new chapter! She has been cast out of the Court, surely that deserves a change of clothing.
That’s what I tell myself anyway. *laughs*
The original Prophet had a lot of red in her skin, lots of warm tones. This prophet has more cool tones, so I changed the beads and dream-catcher in her hair to reflect that.
She is so lovely!
