What's the News?

2011 Just started and I can't help than having a good vibe over it, for many SL related matters as personal ones. So, what's the News? Well the first one is that this year's first official creation is a Tribute to Gustave Doré, which you can get free in the "What's the News" Hunt. If you want to know more about this artist of which I am very fond of, check here the wiki general information, worth it. The tattoo layer is a theme I wished from long to create, the ability to add to avatars the hand drawn, painted or carved effect, now with the new tattoo layer is possible to work over the whole body so made my first try. Also added a few framed artworks by Dorè, hope you enjoy it.
(Gustave Doré works are not copyrighted, his work is in the public domain in the United States, and those countries with a copyright term of life of the author plus 100 years or fewer.)

HINT: In the Temple, rows of books throw a shadow over an old box of memories where your news lay.

My Plans
I've been scribbling and planning over my agenda as I usually do, to set priorities over projects.It keeps always light and open to modifications, but basically I follow it during the year. In those past months I was much concerned with the overall progress of SL, marketing issues and many longterm completions of lines as the gods of Warfare. New great ways to improve avatar genetics presented themselves with v2 options as the tattoo and alpha layers, giving a huge way to improve skin making in second life. So for now on, except finalizing the New Goddesses very soon, will focus on ways to integrate the new layers with skins, old tattoos and body enchancements. Being able to have an additional layer over the head template is simply a whole new world, but finding useful ways to approach it will take me some time to test possibilities, I guess time will tell which are the best solutions. For now I can tell you I have many new lines on my flesh carving table shaking in chains for freedom to incarnate, hoping you will like their ways to be. To end I want to thank all of you for your wonderful support in all this years, but expecially in this taugh past one, your support is mainly one of the things that keeps me going on when SL becomes uncertain. Let's have an amazingly meshes and simlish 2011 together, I see you in our mad world,
Alia
