Pimp Your Favorite Meshers to Derive From!

Post by admin » Fri Mar 10, 2017 3:27 pm

Its an endless sea of products to sift though to only rarely have that AHH HAAAA moment of finding a mesh maker you never knew and are feeling the warm and tingly creative juices for.

Figured I'd make a thread for folks to share what creators they use and regularly derive from. Kind of a Recommends list. They don't have to be members here to recommend them, we just want to share mesh maker love and help our fellow Community members to maybe find someone new to get the warm and tinglies too!.
  • Name of mesher (and if you can a link to their catalog)
  • Give a brief description of their style.
  • Tell us why you like to use their meshes.
  • Show us an example of something you derived from them that you really love.
No matter where you go, there you are...

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 .

PCP catalog - http://www.imvu.com/shop/web_search.php ... _id=587518

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 :P 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 -
