I kind of like the hiding of the face. 'People can't see me so they don't know what to really expect of me' And of course the colors...

I've had this image saved for a while. I love the lighting and the colors, and how delicate she seems. I finally chose it as my avatar because of some troubles I've been having in the "love" department lately, and I thought it was the perfect visual description of my mood and life at the moment.

And I changed mine a couple of weeks ago, after a long time disinterested in changing, because I love red..and I think the picture is romantic and pretty. No other reason.

I have had this one for almost a year, except for the occasional holiday or couple of days for a quick change. I am not sure why I do not like to change to often, perhaps the model I feel suits my personality. The tousled beach hair and soft lighting I think give her a distinctive look.

Because while the Beast is sort of my icon at this point, I was kinda feeling like I should change things up for a bit.  Saw this pic in a bunch posted elsewhere on the board, and thought it perfect for teasing the lovely ladies, gents who like gents, and those who's sexuality is more fluid.  *nods*

@Kazyth, consider me thoroughly teased... YUMMY!

Okay, I've switched my avatars several times since I last posted. Currently, this one just suited my mood more, t-shirt and casual clubbing.. can't see it but she's wearing some shredded black jeans too. That and I was listening to some Common Man Down (logo on black t-shirt shirt.)

My current avatar is the forth (or fifth) in a series over the past couple of years.  The original had a woman that had her hand on the belt.  That on I found in the E archives.  Since then it has been fun trying to find progressive avatars until I have reached the point that I am at now.  Not sure if there is much further I can go!  lol

My avatars always have big round bottoms...sometimes it's just the bottom (like now), sometimes the whole woman. Some pics are more playful than others, which reflects my mood. As for THIS particular avatar, this is usually the position I'm in while surfing E, so I thought it was fitting. :)

My current Avatar? I adore Pin up. Specifically the art from the forties and fifties. None of the new stuff, though I will admit some of it has me intrigued.

I chose this GIF because it immediately grabbed my attention, and I fell in love with it.

Now, it being rather close to Valentine's Day, I could think of no better time to spread the love. <3

Greenthorn liked a long time ago.  So why not?  It's not like I don't choose 'cool' or 'silly' avatars on a whim anyway.

I've been obsessed with ballet themes lately because of a writing project I'm working on... and Giselle is my favorite... and the dance of the wills is my favorite part of my favorite. :)

And there's only so many times I can select images that match my name before I feel like I should end up on some kind of watch list.

Because it drew me in. Just like every avatar I've had and will have. So, it will stay up until I find another image I just have to use. Which will probably (99.9%) be another piece of (digital) art again.

I try to make my avatars into physical interpretations of what I'm generally feeling during a period of time. That being said, my last avatar -- a girl walking through snow -- represented me trying to fight my way through my first heartbreak. The one I wear now is my default for other sites and applications and doesn't necessarily represent a mood because I couldn't really define one.. I just knew it wasn't fighting my way through an emotional storm anymore, even though it was one of my favorite avatars. The lyrics with this image are what define it, unlike my other avatars where the image defines the lyrics. Basically... it's a dedication of sorts to those who helped me along the way, through that storm.. and especially to one person particularly. It's for my friends, both in real life and on E. ;D :-*

All of my avatars are girly boys or models outside the gender binary, probably because I relate to them. By choosing their photos for my avatars, I'm conveying my personal aesthetic on my profile. :-)

In this case, I picked Edward Vigiletti because... he's gorgeous. I'll probably go back to Andrej Pejic for April.

I chose my avatar after reading a book about fallen angels. I love the fallen hero archetype in books, being twisted and manipulated into something far from what they originally were. I suppose I kind of saw that in this current avatar I am using.
