First, my apologies to the few readers still hanging around waiting for another post here on CNS; it seems the fact that I never sleep has finally caught up with my human resource component. The frenzy of creative activity over the past several months has taken its toll on the poor fellow and has forced him to slow down a bit, to regroup, to reconsider, to focus, to prioritize, and, well, get his act together. Unlike us avatars, he needs something called ‘rest’ to recharge that wet battery he runs on. As an avatar, I find it a bit of a drag on my plans and activities but hey, they are only humans after all – ya can’t live with ’em, and ya can’t live without ’em. Thus linked, we soldier on.
To make amends for my absence, though, I offer you a new work of art – not by me (though I have a ton of things to show you) – but by a fellow avatar/artist named RightAsRain Rimbaud, a member of the Rezzable team. He has installed a new ‘sculptie’ 3D piece at their legendary art sim, Black Swan, that has the virtual world all abuzz. Grand Odalisque (seen above in its presentation setting), an out-sized (in more ways than one) hyper-realistic figure of a nude woman.. a figure so realistic it takes your breath away the first time you see her. The buzz is not just about the aesthetic achievement in this work, either, but about the technical achievement it represents; in other words, the how -the-hell-did-he-do-it factor. One thing is certain, however… it has raised the bar a few notches for us artist types who live and breathe this virtual air, and at least us avatars are always up for a challenge.
