Hello,
I am new here. For now I only looked at a few threads, but I think they give me inspiration.
Pixel art is something new for me, but I think it's fun doing it.
I am currently working on a lineart.
I will post it, if I feel it's good.

Now to my questions.
What is a fad avatar?
What does fad stand for?
Is it an abbreviation or an acronym?
When does someone deserve to be in this fad gang? :)

Thanks for reading :)

It means 1 guy did 1 thing.....

And all these other guys took his "concept" and used their creative talents to assimilate that concept to produce something unique but staying within the boundries of what makes up the concept.

First of all "fad" is more or less the same as craze, something that is hot right now. Just try to picture fashion, when people start wearing similar clothes because they become popular. (btw the dictionary is your friend)
Now putting it in the fad avatar context, all the similar avatars here on this thread would be fad avatars.
And it's not like you have to meet any requirements for joining it, just pixel your own avatar :0

Maybe the main page shouldn't be updated. That might be too much awesome for one page!

Updated yet again, did an animation of my final:



For the older images:

OLD:   NEW: FINAL:


Made a bunch more modifications, so it looked more like me. The pic i took of my head was at a weird angle, so I had to use that and also a mirror as reference, but I think I have it pretty damn close. Let me know if you guys want to see the ref.

THanks GA,

unfortunately, I actually look like that. Except the open mouth part. Funny, the extra frames for the animation took me no more than 30 mins.
