Avatar creation (help making avatars)

I just wanted to start a thread where you can post a request to have an avatar made for you. That way those of us who have skills with graphics design software can help you create an avatar based on your desires.

If you want an avatar created, please post your request to this thread. Try to include as much information about the avatar you would like. If you have a photo, you can attach it to this thread and we can then edit it to make a nice avatar.

For members who know how to use graphics software and can help out, please help the members who are making requests.

Regards,

Andy R

Brat,

That image is has a lot of features in it (mountains, boat, water, houses, forest, etc). When shrinking it down it looses a lot. I tried to pull some stuff out but it did not look that good. Is there part of the photo you like most? I am going to guess you like the who "scene" but not necessarily the boat or the houses?

Attached are a couple of attempts but if you can point me in the direction of what you like, then I can try something else.

Andy

I've always wanted an outhouse rat (crazier than an out house rat).

Feel free to ignore.

I would like to see Want2Retire's avatar from the old board restored. I would even turn avatars back on if you did.

2Cor521, it looks like Want2Retire has already restored the avatar. If you turn avatars back on you will see...
