Avatar - I needz one. Answered

Picture of

I'm a bit undecided as to the avatar to go with this new name. Sandy was a bit too...cartoony somehow, and as you can see I'm desperate. T-shirts based on the second amendment are funny, but not funny enough to make a permanent avatar. Laird Howe made a lovely one, but it's spring and change is good. Lemonie was so kind as to crop sandy, but she's not quite right... I need help! Make me an avatar? Link me to one? I'm stuck. What will my face on here be? The people decide! Unless there's little interest on the topic (likelihood: likely). Then I decide, arbitrarily and all willy nilly. Can't have that.

As you can see, my avatar takes on a singular form, which varies, giving me an identity, but also creativity. Infact, im gonna go renew it again.

Both from my collection of over 300 desktop backgrounds. Originating mostly from customize.org, interface lift, and pixel girl presents.

Why not go with something linked to your username? Maybe a silver-metal raindrop hitting a pool of water, and bursting into flame at the point where the drop breaks the water's surface?

The picture is only in my head, and I don't have good drawing skills (sorry, skillz).

Gimp is probably your best bet.

I call unfair sterotyping! I hate clothes shopping. To me, clothes should keep me modest and at the proper temperature and be somewhat in keeping with this century's fashion - anything more is just a waste. :D
