I need an avatar

Postby nanooktheeskimo » 04 Apr 2015, 11:00

It's about time I find one. All the cool kids/old timers have one, and as a semi-retired hanger-on, I feel it's my duty to have one as well. Now I have a few things to consider before I rashly jump into anything though. By which I obviously mean, I don't know a site off the top of my head that'll nicely shrink an image to the appropriate pixel size, and I'm too lazy to do it myself or look one up! 8-) :roll:

So ya know, if you have suggestions, for an image or a site, I'm all ears/eyes. I'm thinking something related to the north at the moment, maybe a suitably ferocious (baby) polar bear or something of that ilk. Or maybe I'll go with something completely unrelated to my username? Who knows, I'm still very much in the "doing this on a whim" stage.

i'd also like to take this opportunity to remind everyone of the Chatty Kathy Series, and that it's a thing that's around and looking for eager new victims lucky winners!

Maybe you like one of my two proposals, nanook:

The second I could resize to 90x90 px, if you want.

Here's a few ideas. It was fun to think about. :) Feel free to ignore all of these or save them for later.

We start with "brotherhood" of the site. (and sisterhood, Kimber). :)
