 Diamond Head Crater in Second Life

Recently, we had the chance to work on something different, yet in essence still quite similar with the lunar terrain and meshwork that we’ve been doing for MoonWorld. This is because it involves a crater. But this time around, it wasn’t an impact crater, but one created by an ancient volcanic eruption.

However, in this particular contest, talent is defined more to be how the participants “assembled” or created their look for [...]

Here is another version of the tees using vector art and light colors to promote CET’s MoonWorld, but making it a bit friendlier for her who [...]
