The first one's lines are too dark
and the middle one is too transparent
but the last one is just right!

No problemo... save the image, go into your profile and click on Forum Profile Information... then upload it and bam... you've got a custom avatar.

I'm not sure which one's you're talking about hobbitboy...  you can already pick a custom one. 

If you avatars start to annoy me (dr.bender nye and Bear) and I happen to make a better version, would either of you mind reuploading?  I might look into it later... I'm kind of tired right now.

I think this is the only one I have that is bigger, but it ain't the right size so I am not sure what you can do with it. Let me know what else I should do and I will work on it...

You probably meant rhetorical.

Also... We can't use .pngs, although I might talk to mArc about that... 
I prefer slightly thicker lines Smarty...  The really really super thin ones don't mesh well with the background.

So I tried outlining your avatar... and I'm kind of iffy with how it turned out... but I've been pretty tired today.



Let me know how you feel about that one... You don't have to use that one, but hopefully we can work out something in the middle if you're not happy with it, and I can hook you up with setting it as your custom. :)

Consider yourself able to use custom avatars.  Save the image, and then go into your profile and upload it. :)

They work exactly like a transparent .gif, except you can have more colors, and alpha transparencies.... Ie, this whole line thing probably wouldn't even be close to an issue with .pngs.

Edit... btw, your signature could use some clean up.... I actually have a bigger version of your avatar if you'd like it to use it.

Well how did you get to that stage?

Essentially, you'll need to crop that down to 64x64 (right now it's 100x88) and make the background color transparent.  I'm finding now that it's best if you make the background color pretty similar to background grey of your post (my post is background white) before you save its transparency.... I can help out a little more if I know what you're used to and what programs you use.... but I'm probably going to end up suggesting irfanview again.  I use that program for all my cropping, resizing, and saving.

I used something called photostudio 5.5 and I dont know why its not transparent already, there's a box you check when you save it to supposedly make it transparent. The only problem is that I think photostudio came with another thing we got and I cant remember what it was.

Isn't the "9" facing the wrong way on your avatar?

No... it's facing this way: 9.... You can just barely make out the tip of the tail, but it's cut off right about there.

Here is an ok one.

It is hard because you are trying to fit alot of stuff into a small graphic.




Looks too much like pixel art.

but here is it just resized--see what you can do i guess.

I hope that works for anyone who wants to use this one I did. I think i'll have to redo the lines around it though.

yeah, maybe a tad bit... also, it's still not the right size.  Needs to be 64x64, right now it's 85x71... unfortunately, something is probably goint to have to be cut off...

Edit: It's also not transparent. :)

Edit: Alternatively, you could place it into a square canvas... say 85x85 and then resize down to 64x64.  This would make a lot of negative empty space in the top and/or bottom.... not sure how that would turn out, but it could be worth a try.

Also... because that attempt looks like it's supposed to replicate pixel art, and because the crop job is pretty decent, I'd probably allow it assuming the user wanted it.  I'd probably prefer that over a cropped image with the background still in tact.... allowing pixel art like avatars is kind of a grey area, and I'd probably be subjective about it, so be forewarned on similar attempts in the future.

Basically my aesthetic criteria are:
Does it look good?
Does it fit in with the general theme of PEEL?

I actually think a lot of my attempts come up short short on the first criteria, if anyone wants to agree with me on that, please by all means pm me. :)

My new siggy?

a) Needs some work
b) Needs a lot of work
c) It's fine
d) Try a whole different siggy

Of course I think it's good, but that's just because I drew it with my own left hand  :D

It's definitely neat.... you've got some jaggieness though.... Ummm... Did you work on it ms paint?  Because if that's the case, that's probably where the blurry edge is coming from....  I assume the cartoons and the signature itself are from a scanned image.... try importing it into another image program and adding the lines and text from there... then saving as a jpeg. 

It works the way it is right now... so I'm somewhere between a & c.... also, it's not like you're planning on posting your signature 50 times per page, right?  Just every once in awhile, which infers that it's cool as long as it isn't eye-cancer or page stretchingly huge.

Lastly, this is totally an avatar thread!  For avatars!  I suppose the best location for it would actually be the test thread, but meh. :p

I do kind of like the drawings a lot... and the message is neat though. :)
