Four Yip, a Second Life artist from the Netherlands, is famous for his painting of various SL avatars.
Cao Fei (SL: China Tracy), just like other avatars that Four Yip illustrated, has never met the painter in real life. After talking to China Tracy, Four Yip started to delineate his own China Tracy according to her temperament, interests which he grasped in the conversation.
In her blog, Cao Fei commented that Four Yip’s China Tracy possess a unique, sentimental, illusionary aura that is not expressed in her real self nor her SL avatar.
