Anyone thats followed my posts since this forum went up has probably noticed I've been changing my avatar constantly, not really satisfied with any of them as the 6kb restriction has made it difficult to produce anything that doesn't look extremely fuzzy/garbled.
Recently one of my friends told me he was sick of seeing it continually changing so I needed to just pick one and stick with it. He also said he felt the female avatars represented me better (probably cause he's used to me using them on other forums) so I should choose a female one. And so I actually went back to my initial avatar I had made only I cleaned the background and reduced the size a little to allow me to save it in a slightly higher resolution. I chose it because it was from an Alteil card and I wanted it to be Alteil themed, she looks kind of quiet and wise which I think represents me well (though there are those who would argue that neither of those describes me), and she appears to be a half elf-angel warrior maid, how cool is that?
Long term I'd prefer to use fan art of an Ateil card, perhaps I'll ask my girl friend if she'll draw something for me since I'm not very artistically gifted, but for now since this is from the Japanese sets and won't be out for some time I think it works well enough.
So thats my story, whats yours, why did you choose the forum avatar that you did?
