Well, last week I rooted around in my closet and surfaced with my skates. Yay! My Bax skates have a very nice AO, but I thought it would be fun to take it up a few notches. So I searched marketplace for ice skating animations, and lo and behold! The first hit was the :KH: Ice Skate AO with Shoes.
What a find!!! This is a full-on AO, with walks, stands, jumps, a run, a fly, and more! Pictured at the top is one of the six walks; I think in skating parlance this is called a “camel.” Above is one of the stands. I can’t capture the full emotion of the animation in a still shot, but imagine idly turning in place while talking with your friends. Below is one of the jumps, a tight fast rotation.
These animations are just plain FUN! No, wait, they’re just plain CUTE! Aww, they’re amazing! And as a model and photographer, I can vouch that these are technically very well made. I think that the highest endorsement is that within minutes of seeing my new AO, three of my friends each had one, as well. And at L$700, it is a real bargain.
So marketplace.secondlife.com, ice skating animations, :KH: Ice Skate AO with Shoes. (Although in the pictures I am wearing my Bax skates) And the pictures were shot at the ice rink at the Klio shopping district.
