I am going to attempt to make commitment and post on every Wednesday. I hope you look forward to my virtual shenanigans.
I have become slightly obsessed with virtual photography lately. I am in awe of the things that people create. Really, there is a lot of work that you have to do after taking a snapshot to make it look beautiful, especially in virtual photography. Just look at this beautiful work by Paulina Oceanlane:
I haven't spent a long time on Koinup, but in the time I have been on I have spotted some really inspirational and outstanding artists. There are so many talented artists that attempting to name them all would result in a complete failure. Instead, I will just highlight a few that really caught my eye.
Perhaps it was the shock of Second Life nudity, or the softened background in a fashion picture. For some reason, I noticed Conniesec's work the first day I started to delve into Koinup.
It is absolutely beautiful.
She made me realize that there is a whole world of virtual art out there, just waiting to be explored. Mainly, her art focuses on female portraits. She does quite a bit of lingerie, nudes, and fashion shots. Impressively, her nudes and lingerie shots are not vulgar at all. In fact, they are quite elegant. Elegant nudity is very hard to capture when society generally frowns upon the bare human body.

I recently found Sims-DreamWitch77, a Sims artists who specializes in beautiful landscapes and portraits. I'm deeply impressed by her talent and the way she draws inspiration from songs or art. Her stunning backgrounds and attention to detail deserve special mention. I do not know much about The Sims, but she sure does make it appealing.
There are certainly many more great artists out there. I'll be keeping an eye out for other inspirational and talented folks in the metaverse. Who knows who I will find by next Wednesday!
Until next time, my curious little creatures....
