Tweaking Callie

Tweaking Callie

For the past year Virrrginia Tombola's wonderful sea monster Callie has been faithfully patrolling the environs of Whimcentricity, following a route laid out for her in a notecard.

Callie is ferocioius, but her skin texture was a bit rudimentary and her color was godawful green. Sweetie and I always talk about retexturing her, but have never gotten around to it.

This morning Sweetie and I were working on scripts that rotate prims. I tell you, rotations in Second Life make me want to tear my hour out. Well, not really, but when do get to a point where I need to go take a nap. I work out a lot of problems while sleeping.

Anyway, since Sweetie had called me all bubbly this morning and waken me at the ungodly hour of 10:30 am our time, thinking about rotations fried my brain and I asked that we stop.

I did think I could work on texturing our sea monster, though, so I pulled a copy out. I found a nice skin for her in one of my organizers, Sweetie applied subtle color, and now, as you can see, Callie has a new look.

Above is Callie's after photo. In the photo below, you can see how she used to look.
