Somehow, doing girls in PS releases this tension. Just imagine you're a modern day Pygmalion.

(crude joke warning) If you think doing girls in PS releases tension, just wait 'til you try doing girls out of PS!

Agreed, though - you see your own signature and avatar more than anyone else's, it might as well be pleasing for you to look at.

Back when I first joined this forum I used the same Final Fantasy 7 avatar for at least 6 months; Then I started to fool around with Photoshop and changed my avie every two weeks or so.

Now, I always change my avie and sig whenever I make a new trace.

I sometimes go back to some of my old stuff, though.

In the end, you could say I like to advertise my own stuff!

During my 'travels' through the Internet, I've had a few avatars. They were always a representation of me, such as something I liked or a symbol that I follow. Once I set an avatar, I usually never change it at all. I've been using the same 2 avatars for years.



The first is a dragon from Warcraft II. I practically lived off that game. The second, the one I use more often, should be familiar to fans of the Zelda series. It's the symbol for Nayru, the Zora, water, wisdom, sapphire, ages, etc. All of those I like, prize, or uphold. As for AnimeSuki, I thought that a non-anime avatar seemed a little out of place. So... I started with a rather nice Kagami one. However, someone else later mentioned they wanted to use it, so I decided to give it to them and make the one I use now. I most likely will never change it.

Now, my sig is a completely different matter. That changes fairly frequently. In fact, I've got Photoshop running in the background--I was just about to make a new sig for myself when I happened upon this topic.

I've had 3-4 avatars in the 3/2 of year I've been a member here. I love the one I have now - especially how well it loops around - so it'll be hard for me to change it.

I try not to change, but my love for Kotomi made me try to change it to Tomoya (the current avatar is an intern while the avatar is being made.)

I'd say about once a week. And remind me again... what's a fortnight? Half-a-month?

I change my avatar when I get tired of starring at one for too long. Usually just depends how I feel.

I voted every 6 months but its usually longer then that, I actually dont like changing my avy that much. But when I do its usually to a series that Im in love with at the moment or finally got a good screen to make one from. I had Ghost Hunt related avys for about 10 straight months, not always the same one but all from GH. It was kinda hard to change it to Zetsubou Sensei after a while but I liked that anime so much I figured I was due for a change. Mononoke I wanted one for a while but never found a hands down end all screen of MS til the very last epi. Plus Mononoke needs more love on this forum so I changed it. Maybe one day Ill go back to a GH one just for nostaglic purposes

Thrasher, thanks man, I can't stop laughing at it, HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA!

Well yeah I like girls too, it's just that my idea of a female avie should be perfect, as in you capture her face with the features still visible. I get scared when I do so since I have issues regarding some anime girls. So I stick to my usual guys and mechs.

If there's an avy that I used the most, it was most certainly this one:



For the record, I'm a huge Celestine fan. Someone kindly made this for me WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY back when I first became a member. So far back, I can't even remember who it was....

I haven't voted.

Normally, I use a Kotaro from Love Hina with Cherry bloosoms, on a 150 X 150 setting, but given the forum standards, and Tomoya of Clannad, I've changed my avatar.

I'll probably keep my current for a long time.

I change mine often, whenever I see one I like or something that is avi material I make it and use it until I get bored of it or find something else that I like.

So it could mean I use it for a week or a month, month would usually be tops for me.

Personally I see it as decoration for my profile page.
98% of the time I have images/avatars/signatures turned off because they ruin objectivity.
(the 2% is when I'm in series searching mode )

I change it once every month (judging from my saves), I guess that's when I happen to check my profile.
