Better late than never right? And I confess I’m late to the blogging party for the latest ‘The Drax Files: World Makers’ episode (episode eleven already!!) but not for any other reason than sheer tardiness on my part.
Fact is, this episode is just as entertaining as recent editions. It’s beautifully edited and this round features the Dwarfins, those strange non-playable characters that you see in distant parts of the grid.
To be honest I didn’t know much about them at all until I viewed this episode, and I was struck by the enthusiasm of programmer Dante Spectre and his wife, Judy Chestnut, who with artsist Jaimie Hancroft bring the Dwarfins to (second) life!
Yet again this series proves what a deeply-layered and complicated virtual environment Second Life is, and check out the great intro to this episode as well!
Keep ‘em coming Drax, they just get better and better!
It’s Friday so that must mean it’s time for another episode of The Drax Files, right?
This week our esteemed reported Draxtor Despres investigates the world of virtual motion.
Most avatars in Second Life know of Abraminations, and have probably shopped there. It’s one of the most successful AO (Animation Over-ride) stores on the grid, and rightly so. Abramelin Wolfe has invested hard in his virtual business, and deservedly reaps the rewards of creating beautiful movements for us to enjoy. There’s no doubt his hard work enhances the virtual experience for many, and it’s brilliant to see how he works in real life. It’s also lovely to see the face behind the name, and meet his gorgeous wife too! (His talented missus creates avatars, check out the Pig Avatar, it’s too cute!)
Thanks again for this latest episode Drax, keep ‘em coming!
