I dreamt about this the other night, and woke up with the idea fully-formed in my head. This is an important detail, because with the extremely few hours of sleep I get at night these days, I rarely have time to dream. 🙂
Anyway, I was so inspired watching Bethy build the other day, that I decided I would make this all by myself — textures, everything. It seems simple, but it was a pain to get everything aligned, especially because I was using the latest Firstlook viewer, which had a teeny tiny bug related to the application of textures to all the sides of a prim (which I didn’t read about until today 😦 ). Silly me, I didn’t think to go back to the normal viewer after the 20th application of textures to a side…
And as usual, I held off on posting this to my blog because I wanted to take more pics… well, it’s been a week and things have gotten in the way of that, so I wanted to post it anyway. I’ll post more pics later, but I think it turned out quite nice. I could imagine this also as a sort of pier — the glass platform would look great over water. I’ll try that out later, and post some pics too.
Anyway, this is my first item for sale — yay!! for entrepreneurs in SL (who take 9 months to come around to it, lol) — which I’ll eventually post to SLExchange. And yay!!! I made my first sale (thanks Ani!)… it feels good. 🙂
P.S. – The word for today is aer·ie: 🙂
1. The nest of a bird, such as an eagle, built on a cliff or other high place.
2. A house or stronghold perched on a height.
3. A word that coincidentally is nicely euphonious: Aenea’s aerie.
