Well, for me it's just suited for my moods.

We are not defined by the way we look, but who we are and how we relate to others!

Your call, my friend!

Being one who changes avatars often, I went through the same decision process when I originally strayed from my kangaroo.

Now no matter what I use there is always an element of my original avatar involved. Usually it's the whole "WTF?" theme that is carried from each avatar to the next. Whatever I use, I have to have that element of ME in it.

You can do the same thing with yours. BFFT's suggestion was a good one. You can keep your original and rework it, or you can go with something completely different but pick something from this avatar to carry through to your new one. Maybe the caterpillar sushi bug??


If you are determined to pic one from those which you just listed above... I like number 3. I don't know why. It just speaks to me the way the others do not.

Just remember that you don't have to leave all of this avatar behind to try out a new one.

Why not? I change mine sometimes twice a week...depending on my mood!



YOU DO!!? And you do this without seeking the acceptance of others? My golly gosh, you must be a grown-up.


I don't think the OP asking for opinions means that he isn't a grown up or that he needs acceptance from others to change his avatar. It's a discussion board. No discussions... no board.

Because you posted it and due to events in China, it reminded me of the people over there buying bottles of Canadian fresh air.

I agree with what Kangaruex said about #3...

1) Which of the following images invokes the strongest reaction from you?


Only the current one

I love it actually the avatar and when you write in pink or red then it feels warm for some reason

Your topics are mostly religion and nature images from experience

The avatar goes strong with the religion touch (traditional.. not
it goes with your point of view on that topic)
The bulb one would go with the strange mushrooms and crazy beautiful eyes threads (progressive)


Thank you for all your input, and to everyone else as well

It seems the original avatar holds the most votes.

I do like the suggestions made by everyone, so I may consider 'tweaking' the original image with a bit

Thanks for all your support everyone

I just keep rotating my avatars on a daily basis. Your avatar has kind of creeped me out for some time now ... its the face man. That said, I like option 1.

Looks pretty interesting. Although I was thinking about changing it up a bit

It looks a little faded and there is no contrast

If you make it sharper (I only noticed it is people going into the mouth when I put it on 100% sharpness)

Differt colour schemes it makes the eyes more blue and it highlights the face better

That size you can't blow it only as background image like yours so it still needs some background color not ?

Darn all this talk at least show us how it would look like







That looks real cool

I like that idea...


A 90 degree flip usually looks odd but not so much in this case.

Also if one wanted to really take the time, the sky and the buildings could be selected, expanded and turned so that they appeared normal.

It would probably require someone with some skills using the content aware fill and healing tools in Photoshop.

I tried but my Photoshop skilz were just too lame...

heck yea man, I am feeling that! And as shocking as this may sound, your current alien still creeps me out the most. I welcome that one you just did.

I was leaning towards #2. Did it pull the plug on itself ... or is it going in for power?

The final product:

Looks really good
it feels like it has way more energy now

But I just saw your cave thread.. Those pictures there with your current avatar look beautiful and soft
Now I feel bad for the little guy

Good call on the contrast and sharpness...


Really makes it pop.

RIP Mr. Beksiński , he would probably be rolling over in his grave if he saw it.

To put the others in perspective. These were my thoughts

That looks really good actually. I like your original avatar, but if you decide to keep it make it full sized. I also liked #1. I am assuming you know how to full size the avatar but just in case here is a link to a helpful thread...

Good tip, I don't know why I haven't done that already (back to photoshop I go)

Don't forget the banner...

EDIT: maybe even combine the first and the last one below as a composite, (eyes looking over the city)?

With a little of that color adjust to match as well...



The two below are just stretched the hell out...
