[Abby's Second Life Sketch Commissions]

[Abby's Second Life Sketch Commissions]

So, what about Second Life SKETH COMMISSIONS?
I used to be a SL photographer but i decided to stop doing this and continue to do pictures for myself only due to a very very old pc: while i can struggle with it doing pictures for my blog, it would be really unprofessional crashing a lot while taking pictures of a client, ya know.
So, while i wait to buy a new pc, i tought i could offer what i already do IRL: drawing commissions.
I'm a RL freelance illustrator and comic artist and i've done freelance commissions for years now, so you can expect quaility and professionality from me.
Since i'm not sure if could like it i will offer a very cheaper offer for now; if i see that it works i will add all the various techniques i offer over Deviantart.

HOW IT WORKS?
-These are some examples of what you get:
sta.sh/029azcjxzzhk
sta.sh/01tysd6mvrz2
Since i'm a comic artist you will not get a "classical" portrait but something done with my style, so it will be unique and different from other sketches i could do for someone else - but always being faithful to your own style!
-More examples of my art? Here's my DeviantArt gallery: martina-g.deviantart.com
-Send me a private message here on Flickr (IM or notecard will be capped) with a screenshot (or more, if you want more pieces) of your avatar. If you prefer i will give you my mail address.
-Sketches will be headshots/halfbody only. Dress as you want; tattooes are allowed, but please keep it simple for my own sanity :°D
-I'll do a preliminary sketch and then i'll show it to you: if you like it i'll go with colors. You can chose which colors have for the shades.
-After the payment i'll send you and high res files without my watermark (only my signature); my watermark show my name as i may would put it your sketch onto my galleries, let me know if you don't want me to do it.
-Payment will be made via Paypal after you approve the preliminary sketch: the price is 5 EURO. Cash is preferred, but you can chose to pay the corresponding amount of lindens (1250L), just let me know it.
-For couples sketch the rules are the same, and the price will be 8 EURO (or 1980L if you prefer to pay in lindens).

For any questions drop  me a message!

[A basket case]

Quick post, because i'll be at friend's place for some day (i really, REALLY NEED to get out of here) and i wanted to update the blog before leaving :D
I wanted to do a Breakfst club-themed picture for a while, and i took the chance a few nights ago because i was feeling an outcast, as usual :°D
I've never been a social animal in both lives; usually it's ok for me, i'm a lone wolf, but it wasn't in the past, especially when i was a teenager. And sometimes my inner seventeen y/o comes out, because i always see people i admire (IRL in the freelance artists groups i'm in, or fellow SLers i i follow on Flikr) doing stuff together like pictures and everything... and as long as i would like to join i don't have the balls to do it - because i'm socially awkward (and... some pc limits when it comes to pictures).
So yeah, i finally did this pictures in wich i tried to dress myself like Ally Sheedy (the "basket case") in the movie (that is one of my fav, tbh).
TL;DR i'm a forever and ever basket case :°D

[A basket case]

The credits for the outfit are the same as this post, except for few things: hair (i added a bang from an old Lamb's hair), skirt (that is actually the Ballerina dress from Neve) and shoes (from Sn@tch).
The set is actually made by myself ina random sandbox; you can find those lockers on the marketplace for just 5L. And the pose was handmade.

Sadly my friend Faina is closing her shop, La Malvada Mujer: i dunno if it will be forever (i think not from what she said me, bu who knows), meanwhile everything is 50% off for another week i think. So hurry up and grab everything you can!

[It's just a spark, but it's enough to keep me going]

Hi there,
long time no see, uh? It seems i have a thing for disappear without a trace. But this time it wasn't my fault, i had some internet issues that i manage to solve just one week ago!
So, how's everyone? Things aren't good for me, personally speaking, but at least i've managed to do an illustration workshop, go to the comicon and see my friends :3 and three of the auditions i've done with comic editors gone well! So, i have something to rely on - at least i try.
I hope things are going better for you!

Long time no see, uh?
But the latest weeks were HELL, and i just want to forget about it. Btw now i should be free from stress - at least i hope.
And what's better of a (late) Strawberry Singh's monday meme to back in business?
When i saw the theme, TV Show, i knew i HAD to partecipate! I'm a huge tv show maniac, and i've had no doubt in wich show recreate: Firefly. And of course the character i chose was my beloved River.
I have to say it was a bit difficult at first, because i couldn't find a location that could resemble the Serenity ship, or clothes similar to one of River's tv show outfits... so i "cheated" and i used my fav ColdLogic dress to recreate a similar look to the outfit she had in Serenity, the movie that ends the serie. It's like the third time in a row that i use this dress, but i can't help it, i love the way it looks on my avatar.
Also, looking at my human-self it gives me an uncanny valley feeling, in almost eight years i never been human :°D

So, i am STILL sick at home... and what's better than edit some snapshot even if i have works to finish?
Not to mention, i wanted to give my answer to the new Strawberry Singh's Monday Meme, Second Life Made Me Learn Challenge!

Meme instructions: Share things that you have learned because of your involvement in Second Life, either personally or professionally. Don’t forget to leave a link to your post in the comments so others can come by and read your answers as well!


  • Photoshop: Before SL, i always used Photoshop for graphic purposes. I used to have a personal blog on a now-dead italian platform (i miss you, Splinder!), and i've always done graphics and templates by myself. I used to run a graphic blog too. On SL i started to edit snapshot just for fun but then i started to really enjoy it, and it became a work too. So my skills get better thanks to this little hobby.
  • Poses: Obviously, when i discovered the pleasure in edit snapshot, i started to need poses, but sometimes i found myself in need of particular poses that i couldn't find in my inventory or in pose shops. So i decided to learn to do poses by myself and luckily QAvimator was really easy to use. Now i have the habit to do particular poses by myself (like the one i used for this picture) if i can't found anything that suits my ideas.
  • Growing a thicker skin: i steal the title for this point from Miss Singh because it really suits my thoughts. Because i had to become more... strong, to survive. I had a lot of nasty personal experiences on SL on the personal side, and one of the worst was the one that has make me quit four years ago. I know i have made my mistakes back then, i admit it, But i found myself in a mess bigger than me, with almost no one by my side... and everything i have done was for... love? Well i dunno if it was love, but surely i was really into it.
    TL;DR now i have even more trust issues than before, lol.
Wow, i never tought that a meme could become so deep, lol!

Trying to catching up with all the things i got while i was offline during January, i noticed how many things Kean Kelly from [ keke ] had released!
The lovely set in this picture is called The Pea Princess, from the same fairy tale, and it will be available at the upcoming Shiny Shabby event!
This set is really princess-y, and it ispired me a very melancholic picture (but well, that's my fault, i am a melancholic person)
