As I explore the Second life art scene. I find that many of the SL artists do not use their real life names. As I pro artist myself I always have to market myself. You have to if you want to stay alive. It is the name of the game. I even have a avatar with my real life name on it.
I suppose that all these really good artist in SL do other things in RL and SL is a great way to get a artistic outlet. I am amazed, how good all these artists are. It really makes me as a pro to shape up and try to do even better things. That is really hard.
I have also noticed that the most of these artists have a female avatar. I think that maybe Second life is the place for many female artists to create and more important to show their art.
I know myself how difficult it is to get a exhibition as a woman.
I love that SL is a place where both women and amateurs get a chance to show their creativity. In a real world where this is often frowned up on.
And the work is often of very high quality.
