34c Using Ploff to create sculpties from a simple drawing tool, a freeware, fun software for kids of all ages. Because this tool is not very precise, you often get surprise effects. The QiQ balbal cushions here are made with Ploff. Puffy cushions w a thin layer of soft gauze cushion on top

35 Wotthe Dickins uses his original software to reproduce the likeness of avatars into a doll. The avatar doll was made from scanning the "real life avatar" and color and shape are produced at once. Notice the fine hand crafted look of "wood whittling" doll via software and the self made Avatar using Linden Lab tools with realistic smooth skin

36a Exhara: blue grass dreamy ambiance as background for a mock up of installation of the real life HuaHui sphere. Realistically in real life, you could not let a sculpture stand freely in a grass land, however, in the virtual world, its possible and no safety issues; no typhoon, no vandalism, no surveillance.

36b Still from the film "RU there?" wheat field flowering, free and at the same time hidden. Realistic pieces of wheat stock are multiplied easily in any shape to give volume and mass to the field. Fields of flowers are also very popular.

52 Playing the Digital Guqin Instrument. The background is a Graffitti Wall, clicking on it sends you to an online whiteboard, anybody on the page could draw, write, paste photos, collaborate on the board in real time and the Graffitti Wall would display it. This is a type of online collaborative painting or "doodling" platform.

53a Tilly Ayres' Myst flower house re-purposed by Swannjiejie. The original flower was hot pink on bright green leave pod. Tilly's Myst flower house is one of the best classic design in sl and totally free. It was first conceived as a gift to a special friend, and then generously designed as a teaching tool for building. It came in freebie Dungeon and are sighted here and there in various sims. (At first glance from a distance, I had thought it was a Buddhist lotus for religious gatherings, until one day I came close to it and visited.) Colors shapes, all transformable. Here, it has been customised as a guest house for the Digital Guqin Museum. Behind the armchair is a painting scripted to cycle pictures and I have put together a sequential picture story book of the DGM thats displayed on the wall. The Guqin instrument (HunDun no1) has been put away inside the closet.

Swann Jie the avatar with her doll ! (creator Wotthe Dickins)
A friend who does not use Sl says, its quite an honor to have a doll made after you.
Really, not exactly like that, I dont have a doll made after my likeness, but my avatar does! :)
However this vicarious honor rubs off onto my real person, I share the light from my avatar.
