<-- Because I popped on late last night and I was a little bit tipsy. It matched my mood - Festive and silly.

<--I changed it yesterday to this because I felt goofy still.
<-- Now I'm slowly getting back to normal but tonight might see that change. It's new year's eve!

Because right now, I'm craving...

...a new book to dive into, get lost in, and obsess over.

:D

It's has gray and was quite pretty... (Also oddly mirrors someone else's when you think about it..)

Something fitting for the new year and sort of where I am with my life at the moment. I'm utterly in love with this one, I had to be to change from the previous [which I will likely go back to] and I don't plan to change anytime soon.

This avatar is absolutely perfect for me.

This guy is my perfect ideal of beauty.
It's not a ridiculously exaggerated pose.
He's fully dressed (just can't get into naked avatars myself, I feel underdressed wearing them).
And the photo is kindof artsy.

He's sexy :D (I hope that wasn't creepy. It wasn't meant to be; more of an observation than anything else.)

Very nice choice, Caehlim. :-)

Well, I agree, so I guess if it's creepy at least we can both be creepy together.

It's the fault of the 'How often do you notice avatars' thread.

I admit it I'm a bit of a sucker for book cover artwork.  Specially fantasy art.  Luis Royo has always been my favorite in that aspect.  I've also always had this thing for romance novel covers.  Some can be pretty cheezy, but I do like Jon Paul's work.  So most of my avatars with the exception of two have been JP works so far.  I like the ongoing theme I have going on. 

With this one, I really liked the way their bodies seemed to fit together.  To me, the image is passionate and captivating.  That and I love her hair. *nod*

That's the problem with putting text into a frame-by-frame animation.  1/24 of a second is probably a little too short to read.

I was able to read it when I was actually watching and focusing on your avatar; not so much when I was simply glancing at it, or saw it while reading a post. Definitely hard to catch if you're not actually watching for the text.

My thought process...

My avatars represent me OOC to a lesser extent (they are always male) and me IC to a greater extent (they are usually one of my preferred character "types").  I rarely use photos of film/TV characters unless I'm trying to play that character in a game OR I'm in fanboy mode. I prefer photos to art.  I like "eye candy" images (attention whore? me?) but I want to see a face, a whole person.

For this guy in particular - I like the fact that he's older. And he has a sneaky smile. And he's doing a little homage to "A Clockwork Orange" with the hat and guyliner.

And I'll probably change it by the end of the day.

I picked my Avatar, because I painted it! Well, and because the redhead is one of my oldest and most-often used characters.

I've been into vampires in some form or another, and I really like anime.  To combine the best of both worlds, I Google searched for an appropriate image and stumbled upon this charming fellow.
