SL NAME: NinaPorras
I am in CGI-art since 10 years, because – don’t laugh – I cannot draw. I am using Poser and Photoshop. Before I tripped over Poser, I wrote erotic stories. But for one story I need months, many months (me, a perfectionist German!), while for a picture I need a day or two. So it was a great discovery for myself and a challenge, this software, with which I could give my fantasy pictures: Poser.
I like erotic art, showing the best of human, the nude body – even in men. My pictures are like water; those of the great geniuses are wine. (Fortunately) everybody drinks water. Everybody except the morons, likes erotic art. If you want see more not G-rated art, visit my gallery on SL.
In 2012 I suffered an accident and lost my left leg. I began picturing handicapped people, part of my self-therapy to overcome my loss. But showing erotic pictures of disabled people is not always welcome in the world of “abled” and two-leggers. Not understood well that even handicapped are sexual beings, with the same desires, wishes and carving for lust and love as the so-called “abled”. By the way, I don’t know any abled without a disability.
When I started on Renderosity with my first picture of a one-legged woman, I just got flamed by its bigot censors, not getting the beauty of imperfectness and refusing human rights for disabled persons. They have not the faintest idea about disability and are in lack of any tolerance. They took disability like something obscene, bothering “healthy people” like bare breasts or genitals. They don’t like get pestered by the view of an imperfect body, which could remind them to their own vulnerability and mortality.
These poor people never will get that true beauty lies in imperfectness and in a strange way a missing limb can make an advancement. Therefore I left some places of internet, when I got stupid comments, pointing me crazy or mad.
Finally I found the right place for my art: It is HERE, on Second Life Here I am among friends, who appreciate my art. Visit my gallery on Crystal Haven, where I exchange the pictures regularly.
Let me close with Mark Twain: “The best way to cheer yourself up is to try to cheer somebody else up.” Promised, I’ll try with my art.
Of course, feedback is always welcome, it makes my creativity speeding up.

I have always had a passion for pretty things and captivating photos. I came to Second Life and was instantly wowed by the the graphical beauty of it. The possibilities are seemingly endless. There is so much beauty to be found in SL. I try to capture as much of it as I can. I find my style improves and changes with every photo I take. It’s easy to find beauty in every place and situation. My goal is to share that beauty with as many people as I can. I spend my time in SL taking photos and spending time with my family and friends. Building and maintaining those relationships are very important to me.
