Hey there! If you'd like an Avatar made, let me know!
Email me your fave pic, and I will resize and detail it in my "unique little style". If for any reason you don't like it, send it back with details on how you'd like it done.
Hope that helps!
(Oh, and add a little message - maybe your name, or the common name for the species, or your username!)
:gulp:

Ok..
1) - Sam, I had that problem too. I've had a word with Kat, see what's wrong. It should work, but it does sometimes play up.
Way round it: Open up the pic in Paint - Save As: Avatar(different num here), save as GIF. It may alter the colour, be warned. Try this in several diff settings, 284 etc. Name under diff nums, so you don't destroy orig. If you do, email and I'll send a fresh copy. (I hold for 3 months.) One of these should work - it just takes persistance.

2) - Bmm - easy - I take the original picture, multiply it, resize all the multiples to various mathmatical proportions (complicated bit), and begin the basics. Reshape base markings on 2-3 of the resizes, as well as a copy of the full size. (By doing that - I know I'm keeping in base proportion, and am able to refer to originals for true form), then go on to selecting the correct colour combinations. (This takes most of the time) - I go from there to finding which "patches" the colours need to be spread in (again for proportional reason and aesthetic) and work my behind off for the next hour or so getting it just right to my style, and hopefully your standards! Easy! :woot:
(Dark wanted our goldfish "Rex" to look dangerously funky, so I really screwed with the colours!)

Hope that helps you both. :D

Oh and by the way Saracen - the background and border are actually from the wood effect on your tank!
