Contributor [Creator]: AJ Wroth – Lemmon Avatar

I saw in a sandbox an Avatar, AJ Wroth, walking around. A lemmon with a knife in the head. It was not a piece of art I usually would select. I had to smile on it. I saw the knife and remembered a movie I once have seen: Knife in the head [1978], with Bruno Ganz, one of the greatest players ever. I asked AJ Wroth: “Have you made it?” And AJ Wroth said: “yes”. And I asked “May I get it for my museum?” – “Sure” was the answer. Then I again, “but I need if full perm” …

I had already forgotten about the Avatar as suddenly I got an object named “Lemoso Avatar” [Accept, Decline, Mute]. I asked “what is this?”

… Yeah it is the Lemmon Avatar!

This is the creator´s statement:

Why a lemon Avatar? I was bored 🙂

I always wanted to try building an avatar and have experience making scripts, creating flying vehicles, but somehow avatars were a mystery to me with all of the attach points and stuff.

After hitting a creative wall in building, I decided to do a simple avatar, and after weeks of work we have “Mr. Lemoso” the lemon!

My inspiration was The Earl of Lemongrab from the cartoon Adventure Time.

The avatar is a simple sphere cut in half with some lemon textures slapped on, eyeballs, and a rather deformed shape I had to make and lemon textures applied as a skin. Over time accessories were added which are the glasses, fedora hat, and knife in his side which adds a nice effect to the lemon cut in half.

I added in a touch to play sound trigger in the body which plays a sample of lemons grab saying his catch phrase “Unacceptable!” I found that the avatar drew a lot of attention and people would touch the avatar triggering the sound, so since I was curious about who was touching me, i added in code for “avatar touched> send user name to owner” so that I can see who the curious toucher’s are 😉

If possible I want to give credit to those who helped with ideas, as well as creators of a few sculpty accessories i used. Thanks to Locksley Stratten. Beckye Burnstein, Chengs Kid, and Luna Enigma for all you ideas that helped transforming the avatar into what it is today.

Sculpty creators: Jamay Greene: Chiefs Knife; Enes Davies: *viscon* Sculpties Nerd Glasses + UV Map; Fedor McNally: +Sculptasaur+ Journalism Fedora

Thank you AJ Wroth for this nice donation and that you worked out the rights of use as mentioned.
