Gwyneth Llewellyn twittered a great story yesterday, written in the finest post-apocalyptic style about SL after SL. Told by an “Oldbie,” the story predicts the future of the grid once the Open Grids took over. (Please click that link—it’s well worth reading.) Once mesh is on the grid, once other grids open up, what will it look like? Will our avatars be human or ultra human?
Whatever grid we end up on, Eshi Otawara will be leading the way for design. No matter what you put in her hands—prims, textures, sculpties—she finds a way to make something entirely new and imaginative.
One of her newest outfits, a mash up of pieces based on a look invented by Ipkiss Igaly, is enhanced by Eshi’s ability to scale the prims in new and exciting ways and to downplay color when shape is needed. I sometimes wonder if she should have been a sculptor rather than a painter.
I chose to show this with SinSister Chastity’s beautiful African-American skin for Abyss. I also think the future grid is going to be less “white” and more colorful, as the real world is—in more ways than just skin color.
