Whats your number(s)?

I am quite tall >.> Moordh even worse so and he will get a bit of a remake (again) soon. I am quite happy with my shape tho, nothing looks off, my arms reach where they are supposed too, my head isn’t too small and so on. As you can see from my last numbers pictures, I’ve barely changed. At 192 cm (6′ 4″) I would be considered very tall for a female irl, tho not unheard of I suppose. Still, I am quite short irl so all my avatars tends toward the more tall, athletic body-type in any game or virtual world I have ever played, including SL.

The above picture is from last year and I have only made a few minor tweaks to fit into mesh. I add on 5 points of body fat whenever Im in mesh pants/skirts/bikinis and whatnot, my hands go from 20 to 30 depending on if I am wearing mesh hands or not.

My current numbers are;

Height: 71
Body thickness: 29
Body fat: 0-5
Head size: 46
Torso length: 56
Love handles: 28
Arm length: 76
Breast size: 50
Torso muscle: 38
Leg length: 33
Leg muscle: 52
Butt size: 29
Saddle bags: 20

The only thing that has changed much seems to be my butt for some reason. Im guessing mesh, again.

I took Moordhs numbers for fun too, and he is 223 cm (7′ 4″) again, not unheard of irl, but _very_ tall. I actually have relatives who are almost that tall irl..apparently the whole thing about “tall Swedes” are true, heh.

Height: 85
Body thickness: 44
Body fat: 2
Head size: 80
Torso length: 86
Love handles: 18
Arm length: 72
Torso muscle: 45
Leg length: 71
Leg muscle: 47
Butt size: 60

So, onto Berry’s challenge

Proportions Challenge Questions:

  1. Do you try and keep your avatar’s body proportionate and similar to the “average” proportions pictured above? – Yes and no, Id have to say. That’s the first time I have seen that exact picture, but I have looked at other similar images and compared. When creating Shyn’s shape, as it is today, I mainly compared it to my own body to get proportions right. Lots of running to the mirror to check just how long are my arms, my hands, my legs and so on, until Shyn looked good.
  2. What do you dislike the most about the SL avatar mesh? – So very many things. I find it hard to pick just one thing. Hands and feet rank very high up on my list. The general crotch-area is horrendous too, as are parts of the face.
  3. Does it bother you when you see other avatars that are not proportionate at all? – It’s more of a “What where they thinking?” when I see a really bad shape.
  4. Even though this is a virtual world and people can be anything they want to be, do you feel when they are in human form, they should try to keep their proportions close to average?  It’s your world, your imagination, is it not? If you love the way your avatar looks, good for you. I may grumble at yet another t-rex shape but it’s not as if I can do anything about it.
