So here is what I did. The original picture is very good actually so all I did was spread the color some to smooth it out. Then I re-sized it to avatar size and Background size. Then I found some others along the same line and re-sized them to Background size.



This one really, really says something to me, somewhere deep in my soul. Thank you for finding it.

This one may be way off base for what you want. I used your image as a guideline then reproduced it in more of a "computer environment" I guess using the images I posted earlier. Anyway, this is what it looks like.

Ooh! I do like that! I like the style, it is beautiful. Can you darken the colors a bit? I prefer very rich, earthy tones if you can find them. That's mostly why I was unhappy with my own image, the RGB are all way too bright for the web - nothing like the actual drawing looks.

For the record, I am a web developer - I like to do web graphics, and I can do pretty cool stuff using people's faces as the medium. So, if any of you need something based on a face, I can come up with something a little kooky and maybe kind of creepy.

Here are a couple I've done of my own face:

This was my avatar for awhile, receive one comment that it looked evil and satanic.


One of my favorites:


I use this one for part of my musician persona:

I've noticed a lot of the artist-contributors have a great degree of "empathy" as well and are able to really read into what people want

Pretty amazing stuff!

Sublime's story with the pictures was awesome! I'm amazed they were just one sentence statements but said SO much more due to the pic being included!!

So, what do you want your signature to say?

Do you want it to say something about you, or do you want to speak to the person reading the signature?

I darkened/deepened the colors a little, how's this? I wanted to keep the "sketch quality" to it instead of making it "sci-fi" looking

Much better. I think, though, it is the green grass that is searing my eyes.
I will take it and see if I can do anything to it... Will be back in a few mins.

Well PS crapped out on me (I'm at work, ooooopsie). Anyway, I think the grass needs to be something darker, several different colors of dark gold and green - like a wheat field. This way, the tree stands out... What do you think?

I think it should do both...say something about me (freedom in truth) and speak to the person reading it too!

I like the idea of a graphics signature with some sort of caption...maybe "freedom in truth" is simple enough...the idea of my signature matching my avatar is pretty neat also!

I like my avatar orange (like it is) but would like the background and avatar to be "one" instead of being a separate background and avatar!

I don't know...might be a lot to ask for!

This is the avatar:


And this is the background:

I tried another approach, but my skills aren't quite up to that level yet... need more practice

....but it may give one of the more experienced folks an idea



I'm not good at cleaning up the white edges

I like the tree, just not the doxy.


(Sorry, doxy!)

I would prefer the woman to be unmade and not in a sexualized or "flirty" pose. I know that it is hard to find pictures of women who are just being themselves, so I'm not harshing on you, PurpleChiten, this is a really great idea.

Ideally, I will one day grow from a tree, so someone can just take a picture of me at that point.

Until then, I need this magic you all do so well.

I'll leave those details for some of the more talented folk or work on it some a bit later. I need a break after stretching my talent level


Ipsiss or Agarta or some of the others may be able to whip something up really easily!

Nice job!! My skills are limited too, but it's still fun for us to try and to learn as we go!

Hey again, I have another question, it has nothing to do with avatars, but i figured I'd ask anyway.

What is the appropriate size for using a picture in your signature?

Wow this thread is up to 42 pages already. Crazyness.

Thanks for trying...but that is kind of what I already have!

I am trying to blend the two!

Sort of like this:
