Since my last attempt at creating a skin for faces I've looked more closer at mid 90s graphics and how people were represented in games such as Medal of Honor. Taking this I then tried to apply it to my own avatar, whilst the result was something better it was still cartoony and in reality not that much beteer than my first attempt but it was clear that I had learned from my past attempt and applied it to this one.
When it came to the clothing I decided to attempt a new way of texture. I aquired clothing that matched the character's design and photographed the images to match the templates provided for their soon to be digital counterparts in Second Life. Through Photoshop wizardry I turned them into textures, the hardest part was making sure the colours matches and didn't seem out of place due to the poor lighting I had at the place where the photos were taken. Overall it proved to be an enlightening experience as I plan on going back fixing all these things and adjusting them.
