I found out about CyberExtruder.com yesterday. They offer some software that lets you use an existing photo of yours, and then create an avatar skin from it. I pulled my hair back to get a better picture. The software is free, but you can’t save unless you purchase licenses in batches of 10 saves for $10 USD. The quality looks great until you upload the skins into Second Life. I think it has to do with the limitations of the pixel depth in Second Life itself. Afterwards, I was spending a lot of time getting my avatar to look like me, as well as shopping for hair that makes me look a bit more like the real me. The hairs a bit too flowey, but I can’t find anything closer to me yet.
