I was commissioned to make some avatars out of a very limited set of interests (yes, there were a lot of different bands, but 'bands' as a whole is quite restrictive) so I picked out ones that would interest me, one that I thought I could make visually striking with animation, and then let my mind wander and re-created Peter Criss' solo album with schpydurx as "Catman!" (My first three attempts to use Photoshop's 'Color Replacement Tool' made him look like The Joker's less successful, more simple-minded cousin. That tool does not work well on skin tone.)
So...back to the drawing board. My wife went from laughing at me to absolute amazement on my fourth attempt, as I took a different approach:
And just like those last three above, I never make an avatar for someone that I wouldn't make for myself. I'm quite jealous of that Grease avatar! A while back schpydurx had asked me to make him a 'writing' avatar, and it turned out so good, I've been pining for it ever since. So this evening I decided I was going to make an identical one for myself, but couldn't find the original source pic, so something altogether different developed! Looks good if anything further I author ends up in the paper too ;)
Which Numa Numa Avatar Should I Use?
And since work has officially blocked all animated gifs...well, suffice it to say this page is going look downright awkward by the time I get there.
