I have been so facinated with 3D avatars since 2007 when I joined IMVU. The worlds first 3D chat world. Yes its still around. I am still apart of their community as a content creator. I love making clothing and hair design using basic design meshes then designing over it until the final product is made.
But now if my RAM and laptop fans can keep up for rendoring I want to start to use VRroid a posable fully customizable 3D avatar that responds to your webcam. It is super easy to use if you know Photoshop, Meshes and Texturing.
