Glow On Grunge Street

This is another SecondLife Photo Manipulation from a newly built sim called "Horizon Dream"  . The creators of this amazing designed and built sim are Marcus Inkpen and Sharni Azalee - two of SL's best sim landscape builders/designers and proud to say customers of my sculpted landscape rocks and rivers within SecondLife.

As part of the Horizon Dream sim, they built a gorgeous textured old city street scape. If you are an SL Resident, you must go see this town and sim they built for all to see.

I wanted to do something with this street scene. The backlane that Marcus created and textured really caught my eye. I wasnt sure what to do with it exactly. But as I kept working on it, I wanted to create the look of a dirty GRUNGE-Looking bad part of town where only the down-trodden and lonely and desperate end up hanging around.

I added a model to be a lonely woman...maybe looking for a date...maybe looking for a trick, but not suceeding - adding to the loneliness of the street.

I used my CLOUD WALL photo  http://toysoldierthor.deviantart.com/art/Glow-on-Grunge-Street-179763412#/d2vi9zk I took back in 2003 as an inserted backdrop and inserted the glowing light rays from the approaching storm into the back lane.

The general intent was to give the image a DIRTY GRUNGE LONELY PLACE TO BE.

Hope you like it.

Credits to Marcus and Sharni - the creators in SL of this amazing new sim. Awesome work you two. The model is a friend in SL that owns a photo studio and had just the right pose and outfit for the model I needed for this image. All the other textures were my own.

I agree.  At first she wasnt there.  I was done with the work but I wanted to have a subject in the work.  Initially I was going to have a down-trodden street bum sitting on the street with his face between his legs.  But when asking a few friends for a pose like that, one of my fellow merchants/friends suggested "why not a street prostitute or a lady with suggestive outfit that her intentions were not 100% sure but could be imagined.".  I thought - YES that would be better.  So I got a friend with a studio to find me the right pose and be my model :)
