If Crimson Fields, which I featured in yesterday’s jigsaw, represents a darker, complex side to fantasy, today’s region of Lumenaria represents fantasy at its most joyous.
Kayle Matzerath, its creator, is endlessly and seemingly effortlessly talented – as witness the amazing range of Dreamscenes he creates at Garden of Dreams, or last year’s awesome desert landscape at Fantasy Faire, with its huge sand fountains.
But this year he has created a beautiful fairytale city – although like a Pixar animated movie in its perfection. It’s the sort of town the disguised Prince rides into of his way to claim the beautiful Princess in the castle – and the celebrations will see these cobbled streets hung with even more bunting and filled with jovial and loyal citizens, having a good time.
But perhaps the most remarkable thing about this region is that – thanks to Kayle’s cunning mesh builds, the land impact (before the traders came in) was a mere 2,000. Yes, one could have six of these towns on a single region, and still have room for some furniture.
Perhaps it was this roominess that encouraged the dragon (created by Rynn Veerood) to fly in … and Wildstar Beaumont to take this lovely picture!
Catch up with your Prim Perfect jigsaws (showing images of Second Life and other virtual worlds).
If you’d like to submit a photo of your own to feature as a jigsaw, send it to the Prim Perfect Flickr Group. It should be sized 800w x 600h, or else it will need to be re-sized.
