thanks, made it from this oldie. the eye was a left-over scrap zoomed in from a portrait i never felt like finishing


Hmm.. I think I will stare for awhile..
Interesting..
But it does answer to me why your avatar cuts out perfectly with the profile info...
Nice work.


Shading is nice too

how did it answer that?
I had to go back in and white out that part so that you could see the profile info through it. i had to use a reference of it not being whited out on the profile pic to do it on mspaint..then, again when it wasn't centered..
i messed with it a few times. it's still not perfect.. i think the last time i was doing it i was looking at my profile, instead of how it looks in the forums.. and i whited out more than i needed to at the bottom and not enough at the top. so i had to go back and white out some more at the top, but just left some at the bottom.. it's unnoticeable anyways.

I have changed mine about 100 times. I change it often and it depends on my mood. I tend towards superheros but usually from comics that no one has ever heard of. Since I am in my 40's .... they are ones from like 30 years ago.... but again....depends on my mood.

I am glad you asked this question because I have wondered it myself. If it affects people like it does me.

Some are in your face and give you a definitive feeling toward the poster and some are more subtle and don't.

having said all that.....you gotta get one.....



I've asked my daughter to draw a simple one, I love her artwork as a mommy should; but ....


No...no...no "buts"....that is a great idea. I have thought about doing that as well.....my boys are always drawing robots....it would be very cool and an important part of who you are.

if you don't do it....I am stealing your idea

Hehe..because otherwise the words would lay over the art...
So I just assumed you put some work into it. To make it fit snug

ah ic
well i did draw the original too


was thinking about making this one into a background image for some play.. i've used it before as an avatar.. it ain't bad.. although, i ain't the girl in the pic. I did draw it for her tho. always been real proud of this one, it's my best piece i've come out of mspaint with. working with a mouse is frustrating, i bet i could do better if i had a tablet

Nice. I do like the 'chaotic pontillism' feel of the work. Very edgy but not harsh. I've always loved black and white.

This is good work.
I use to do something similar using some type of black paper and pick...that was high school...
What you are doing is reversed in color and on a computer...

Do I judge people by their avatars?

I do look at them, but that's because I happen to be interested in paintings, photography, etc.

I change my avatars on a regular basis. And no, it may let people know that I'm a woman, and also my avatars always show my current hair color, but besides that, nothing else.

No, I am not a goddess/fairy/warrior/angel.

I just happen to like the fantasy art work, and mysterious subjects.

I also enjoy creating avatars for people and finding out the story behind their avatar request.

Your avatar is one of my favourites. It represents you well. From what I can tell anyways. You seem to be a nice compassionate person.


Awwwww, thank you so much! I really appreciate your kind words.
