I like PCP ( Prince Charming Productions ) and is the most often derived from product/s for me .
The style is pretty basic which makes for easy and fast texturing .

I've derived from probably about every arcade machine - coin operated game mesh on IMVU ,
PCP's arcade game mesh is again basic and the quality of texture/art in comparison to the other
creators meshes isn't quite as clear for those who like a higher quality picture . But for me it's perfect
because it cuts down on the KB's ( kilobytes ) having a very large game room with over 100 arcade machines .
Also I've found for the most part you don't view things ( as a user ) from close up or having a very
discerning eye of scrutiny alike when we are creators and want everything perfect . So at a distance
the textures used do not look as blurry . To note there on an arcade machine I mostly use IMVU users
avi pics and in such being cartoony to me they look fine at a distance and all blend in well together .
Here is the PCP arcade game mesh - http://www.imvu.com/shop/product.php?products_id=187088
As stated I mostly make these arcade games based on my friends IMVU avatars , so recently I wrote to
Prince Charming and asked if he'd mind if I made one based on his character . After saying yes I made this ,

Now when I make these I will often but not always ask the person I'm creating it for to come to my arcade
then I take the pictures of them from within . That way the background kinda matches my room which
is somewhat where they are designed for .
There are 56 different derived from of which I made 30 versions of the PCP arcade game mesh -

It's too hard to pick a favorite one cuz I love 'em all but every new one I make I always tell that person it
is my favorite
I really do love my ChickaFlicka game but I need to make a new one with a Notorious motif ,
perhaps even if she is reading would be interested to make one for me .
Here is another favorite one I based off one of ChickaFlicka - Notorious stickers called Chief Chicka but it uses
a different mesh which is by user smilewithtears is not only more clear but has an animated video play screen -

smilewithtears has a pretty incredible catalog - http://www.imvu.com/shop/web_search.php ... d=12866256
I guess one of my favorites which is the only one I didn't make from IMVU avatar pictures and used a real persons
photographs on . . It is called Moppet Girl - http://www.imvu.com/shop/product.php?pr ... d=34312502
Now this one has an interesting story behind it . If any of you are familiar with the Disney movie - Wreck it Ralph ?
So basically my arcade from IMVU where you can go inside the game/s had an influence on that movie . In the
Wreck it Ralph movie the game characters come alive and its about what they do when Litwaks arcade closes .
Anyways Moppet Girl voiced by Stefanie Scott , she is the one who goes to the arcade and instrumental in how the
story unfolds . So what I did was used her cartoon image playing the Wreck it Ralph game for the video screen and
what she wore to the premier on the outer shell . My favorite ever silk dress , a cherry red color to reflect the in
game bonus items and a pac-man purse that was designed by one of her friends for that specific event . I may change
the outer shell to what I'm designing in IMVU based off herself and that outfit . So then I made a lil video and she
seemed to get a kick out of it , that is having a game based not only on her character but real self . Something left
out of the 1st movie but I'm very hopeful they will consider stealing from me for a part 2 which is in production .
PS - Something I noticed here was interesting to me , so as I was designing the Moppet Girl game I decided to make
a poster of her real life person to hang in the background alike an artist will do when basing a new art off a real person .
This was after an absence from IMVU , so when I came back I still had the big head , hands , feet and so on .
Now first thing I noticed was everyone making fun of me for my big head and demanding I change it immediately ,
even many friends gifting me heads and resizers for those objects . Anyways . . what I noticed was when you compare
a persons real picture ( my poster hanging in the background ) to an IMVU avatar standing in front of it . .
When they have the tiny heads they are so out of proportion to reality , as a persons real head is about the same size
as would just fit inside your chest . So to me the majority of IMVUsers with the very tiny heads look very pin headed .
Then again I guess it could just be where i'm old school IMVU and therein prefer a more cutesy cartoony look .
Honorable mention here another derivable I like to use and make is posters , that is wall arts to hang in rooms .
For those I found Neo1471

His mesh frames were perfect for me as they have no border , which is one less thing to have to make opaque ,
clear out or texture with a pattern making them very easy to create . Here is the one I use most often -
Thanks for reading me , have nice day !
