Alyx Vance (HL2) Nude Photoshoot (updated)
Awhile back I had made a photoshoot of Alyx Vance from Half-Life 2 posing nude. I done that out of boredom, curiosity and a fascination with how realistic I could make the photoshoot appear. My aim with the photoshoot, in fact, was to make it look as much like a real world photo spread as I could; like something out of Playboy.
It got fairly close, me thinks.
My mindset was that none of it was real, it was a 3D computer model, and it never occurred to me that it would hit anyone negatively. Ironically I am generally offended with how women are used as images. So why this thought never came to me at the time is unknown.
Sadly, it required a rather offended dear old friend to point out to me what should have been obvious. I’ve deleted the photos as a result, and there are no backups on my computer. There couldn’t be, anyway, because Linspire corrupted the MBR of my hard drive which lead to the repeated formatting of the drive (which I later learned was not needed).
Searching for cached versions of this page will not produce the images. They were hosted on Flickr, not in this entry. WordPress.com has a nasty tendacy to delete images after a relatively short period of time and I have stopped uploading images to my blog entries here as a result of that.
