I thought I should have a proper FAD avatar as well... what a pity I'm no pixeller! :crazy:
My only hope to manage to create something vaguely resembling myself was taking a real picture and editing it. So, I took one of the few I had at hand, chose a limited number of colors, scaled down (both size and colors) my face (the one at the top) and then started pixelling... it took a lot of time (of course, I'm slow ;)), and eventually managed to get something acceptable (face at the bottom).

However, it looked way to realistic, whereas I wanted something cartoonish like most of your avatars... so, I spent again a lot of time trying lots of different palettes and pixel arrangements, but I'm afraid I failed miserably :(

Anyways, it's late now and I've already wasted too a long time... so, I guess I'm gonna have to be happy with this :-\

Well, as said, this is just lovely :)
Perhaps the last frame could have less square irises... but still eyes are a gem to look at! 
The only thing I really have a issue with is the background... maybe too many hues... is it still temporary perhaps? I noticed you did not do any AA against it...
Anyway, hard to notice given the cuteness of the rest ;)

Why, thank you! ^_^

Yeah, I know what you mean about the irises. I'll try to fix that.
And yeah, I personally think the background is too bland, so I plan on changing it soon.


Anyway, you did a great job with your avatar. No sense beating yourself up over little things. It looks really good to me.
Y'know, for someone who claims to be no pixeller, you sure are good!


Oh, and your avatars kick ass, Baccaman! I totally love the expressions and toning.

This one in particular is awesome.
It almost has a "TwoFace" look to it.

Looking forward to see the revised version...

*blush*
Oh... well... probably it did not turn out to be a complete disaster only because I feel comfortable with tiny stuff...
But, hey, thanks for the encouragement! You just convinced me to try to improve it* and remove the line below it.

*edited now... it looks a bit more like me... but there is still job to do :-\

Not that I know of. Just make a self-portrait, and make sure it's 64x64x2 (128x128 with double the pixel size).

Fully agreed!

Now, what about just a bit of AA, Ryona? Or are you still unsure about it?
