Opensource Obscure

I don't mean to critique Ferocia's skills about avatar modeling, but IMHO it goes without saying that the original is way better than the avatar.

Alexander M Zoltai

I agree with Opensource Obscure...

The RL woman is the "hottified" one!!!

Bettina Tizzy

I agree with the fellows' comments here but I do have a couple of suggestions for Ms. Ferocia. She might elongate her avatar's head a tad. Also, she needs to downturn the outside of her eyes a wee bit.

Ghosty Kips

Ditto. Smokin'.

Ferocia Fackler

Hehe thanks guys. That picture was taken in 2005 and let's just say "a lot has happened since then" ;-). But maybe that's another element to why it's so cool to be able to customize SL avatars to such extremes, giving you the power to duplicate a version of yourself from your younger years and "freeze yourself in time". Logging on with Ferocia these days is always a bitter sweet moment. On one hand it's nice to savor those moments, but at the same time it's a crude reminder of how time has passed.

Maybe one of these days I'll make a "future" version of Ferocia - me in my 50's or 60's, all wrinkles and sags - and it will suddenly make reality and my current state seem pretty damned sweet :-).

Ferocia, good thing this is NWN and not the Alphaville Herald:

1)Timothy would be after your avie for a "Post 6" appearance and

2) Every lunkhead--including me--would be voicing his opinion on never nuance of your appearance (which is, if I may quote the consensus here, Smokin')
