Great Artists of ATS,
I come here seeking some help please. I desperately need an avatar, ...or rather, a full size avatar background image.
I joined ATS in 2009, but I never bothered much about my avatar, because for a LONG time, I didn't post much. I was just reading all the stuff here
Anyway, last week I had my first successful thread, which actually made it all the way to the ATS front page (home page), and stayed there for two
whole days, ...which for me, was a great achievement. But one thing let me down: my avatar. I was embarrassed by my avatar. During this whole thread,
I had this ugly picture as my avatar, which is just something that I downloaded off the internet:
What I want:
I would like to have an avatar that matches my user name, which is "QMask". "Q" just stands for the letter "Q", which I think is a beautiful
character/symbol. I have the word "Mask" in my user name, because at the time when I joined ATS in 2009, the user "Q" (me) was "hiding behind a
mask". [Nowadays, the "hiding" bit is not so much true anymore.]
Anyway, as awkward as my user name is, I am stuck with it now.
So, I would like to have an avatar that mixes/contains three things/objects:
(1) The capital letter "Q". (...perhaps in 3D ?)
(2) A mask, preferably a small one. Like the ones that only cover your eyes, not the whole face.
(3) A friendly face and/or a big friendly smile.
I believe the ugly white mask (above) that I previously used as my avatar, subconsciously put people off. It's only natural, because the damn thing
is very unfriendly. That is the reason why I now want to go for something more friendly and inviting.
The problem is, I have no idea of how to mix/combine the above three elements into a single avatar image. And that is the reason why I am coming here
for help. I am coming here to tap into the ATS creativity. I need an artist to please combine these three elements, in a very creative manner, into a
single avatar image.
(Just by the way: The blue letter "Q" that I use now as my avatar, is just something that I quickly downloaded off the internet, in an attempt to
just quickly replace the ugly white mask that I had. I see this blue letter "Q" as a very temporary solution. Hopefully.)
If somebody on here chooses to help, then please understand: there is no rush. I have survived without an avatar since 2009, and another one or two
weeks will not make a big difference. Also, it is weekend now, so the avatar creators may be preoccupied with their weekend activities. Like I say, I
I will check on this thread from time to time, ...to see if anybody responds.
Like I said: there is no rush.
