Double-posting to show Miz Lobelia the transparency against the other background color ...

Is it wrong that I'm muttering "Give her the spoon, give her the spooooon" under my breath now?

Here is a beautiful picure of Varda, by Maija Pietikäinen, which would make great avatars:

I'm not so sure about the white, scary eyes, they look like a Cyberman's!

Well, it looks great, Athè, but I know what I want for avatar. The only thing is I have to try and get it into avatar-format and see if it survives that.

If I can find a way/place to upload it, I might place it here, to see what can be done.

TinyPic works great too, if you aren't worried about being able to find the URL later.

I'd be happy too, but most of the image will have to be cropped out. Or have these weird color bars on either side.

What about this one? It's the right aspect ratio:

Here's one suggested cropping - it's using the full width of the picture, but the "window" can be moved further up or down.

 -

If more of the area above his face should show as well as what's there now, we need to have a square picture with colored or transparent panels on one or both sides.

Interested?

Very interested, thanks Varna. If it were square with transparent sides it may show from his chin to the bottom part of the horn. That's prob'ly the best I could hope for with a pic that shape.

Thanks for the link Sil , I like that pic too but I think I'd rather have a live avi [] []

I'd very much like to change my avatar to this one:

 -

Since it uses the same technique as the drawings on the cover of my edition of Tales of the Perilous Realm, and since my rpg character Bethberry was supposed to be the daughter of Tom and Goldberry, I think this is acceptably Tolkienish. I hope The Steward agrees!

I much prefer this to that purple tree thing I've had. That background is all wrong--for Bethberry, it should have been green and I don't know how to change the purple to green.

Madomir, what about one of these? They are cropped the same, only centered and left-aligned respectively.

Bethberry - I might be able to change the purple to green for you - not quite sure, though ... []
