As a blatant copy of Comfits post about the user names, I thought that I would start a "how'd ya pick that cool avatar?" thread.
So how 'bout we all " take a minute & share with all of the crafty folk how/why we selected our avatars??
I'll go first with my explanation. My brother started a writing forum: http://www.arcane-artistry.net/
which he designed everything by himself. I wanted to support his effort, so I decided to join. But since he is younger than me, I decided that I couldn't let him surpass me in the do-it-yourself-design quotient, I decided to design my own avatar.
I scoured the net searching for something that I liked. Finally deciding on 3 different pictures, I used paintshop to merge them together until they were what I wanted. So I got this
and then about a week ago, I decided to change that and using photoshop and a pair of dragon wings from an Amy Brown postcard, I got what I currently have;p
Allright grrrlies and a few boyzzz;p Now is your turn! I can't wait to read about some of the awesome avatars on this board!
