Today I am going to try to inform you what to do when purchasing a mesh head and wearing it with your body.
The mesh head I am using today is the Eveolution Head with the Eve Slim v8.4 (whether it be pulpy, makes no difference). This mesh head guide can be used for Adam mesh head and other mesh head.
We want to learn how to resize the head to fit the body and oh yeah, fix those eyes that are just scattered everywhere.
FIRST ADD THE ALPHA AND HEAD CHOICE.
The alpha for the head and eyes is to hide the secondlife eyes (as you can see in the picture below), so that you replace them with mesh or prim eyes
If you wish to attempt to use your secondlife eyes then wear the Alpha with the head only, but if you are using a mesh body and mesh head, it would be advisable to choose the alpha for the body and head or the body + head + eyes (for mesh eyes)
Now, You should be looking like this more or less on first go LOL
2. NOW GO INTO EDIT MODE AND SELECT EDIT SHAPE
We are going to go to HEAD and resize our heads to our liking and that is also favorable to the eyes
3. Now we quickly go to the next tab EYES and get busy there
adjust the following :
Ok, what i did next after this, was go to the marketplace and quickly hunt for mesh eyes. I did this help page for you because I dont usually wear a mesh head but I had to give it go just so I could try it out and as I was learning I was screenshotting the process to help you.
Ginger suggested Ikon eyes, the mesh eyes for Ikon are only sold inworld , but for some odd reason, I just had to buy these eyes Customeyes, I adjusted them as instructed and got the colour that I would like after posing on my posestand and got this result
for a little extra on the neck use
the eve neckline support for a smoother tone transition
Everything takes time and effort and nothing is perfect first time around. Open your minds and if you like spending money to improve your avatar, then take the time and effort to try all possibilities on making that avatar work for you. I hope this has helped you in some way.
Mesh eyes are just getting onto a pose stand after adding each of them. Then follow the instructions, if really needed, edit each one by moving them for a better look, but remember to copy them before you edit the originals
