Not all of us go to the masters, some of us have the skills to make our own, probably a lot of us actually, a great deal of people on ATS actually work in highly technical fields, you would actually be surprised, though we seem to have less of those people now, professional and technical posts are lacking at present. I've seen some really tripped out Avatars in my time here, and I know many of them were original.
As for where they come from, theres quite a few of us (me included) that make avatars for others, all you have to do is ask.. its all free

So I noticed many ATS users try to make a big impression by googling and then uploading an Avatar to their profile. Humans are beings that are obsessed with image and what others think of them. Were are people getting these Avatars for their profiles?
Is there a psychology behind these people who really want to IMPRESS PEOPLE or look COOL only on the web?
