Dragon Myself All Over Second Life

At some point, dragons have to happen.  While I realize there are a ton of dragons in Second Life, thanks to the likes of Grendels and such, you can never have too many.  Particularly of the Asian variety.  Not only are Asian dragons good luck, but they’re shiny, they smell nice, and they know where to get the best Pocky.

Originally, I made a quadruped dragon, which looks freakin’ amazing.  Only problem is it doesn’t move the way it should in Second Life, and apparently I have to make an animation override with all my own animations.  There may be sacrifices and volcanoes involved.  They really don’t approve of people tossing things into the nearest active volcano, for some reason.  It will be finished at some point. I’m just not sure when.  It’s rather a daunting project at the moment.

As such, the biped was born.  I was playing around with the idea of making a more female shaped dragon, but dragons really don’t have breasts, and I was advised against the idea by a number of people, including those with breasts themselves.  I’m okay with this.

This particular avatar was built using my own human avatar as the base shape, and then made a bit thinner, because Dragon.  Some mesh clothing may fit it, by some miracle.  It’s always a good idea to try out demos and things to be sure.  As far as I can tell, medium and large items will probably fit pretty well.  It all depends on what you’re trying on, because nothing really has a standard size, in spite of the label.

The Shen Dragon (also known as Shen Long) Avatar is available at the main store location inworld, and on the Marketplace.
