Indeed PrankMonkey, it does help.
First, don't forget the FREE ONES ABOVE people!
Second, sometimes I find a piece of art and I think "this would be perfect for so-and-so" but that can be a rare occurance. Much easier for people
to find a piece of high quality art they like, even if it's just a part of the artwork, like a head, arm, control panel, etc...
Bigger is better. Going smaller to fit the avatar works well, but images just don't size up without distortion...so find big.
Finally, yes Google Images and Yahoo Images work well. I probably find 80% of the art there, but I will usually go through pages & pages to get 3-4 of
the best ones...then refine it from there. I will also look around some of the sites Google or Yahoo take me too, because sometimes there is other
I also don't limit to comic art, although they are fun. Recently PrankMonkey said to me "as Red Forman on that 70's show would say..." and I was
like OMG...perfect avatar idea, so there you go.
Here's one I recently did on a whim. It was a piece I had found and saved sometime back.
