Bit new to the forums here but I thought that a set of icons I did recently on Forum personalities might work well as avatars. Some of them might be bending the rules slightly on the political front but I'll let you guys judge that.

The list is Bush Baby, Clueless, Guru, Hopelessly Addicted, The Joker, Lurker, Mac Zealot, Moderator, Newbie, PC Weenie, Pinko Commie, Statistician & Troll. Hopefully most of them should be self explanatory.

You can download the Icons from here (http://www.afterglow.ie/icons.html) if they float your boat.....

Done entirely through Photoshop vector shapes and a does of layer effects...
Think there's about 600 layers in the PSD at the mo

that's just not right ;)

how do you manage to keep track of them, or are all of the images in one psd?

It's one psd ...every character is made from a vector shape with some custom use of inner glows, shadows and gradient overlay. Lots of layer with obscure names like "lower left cheek wrinkle 2" :)

Layer sets are a godsend as well

Great job! And 600 layers? That's just disturbing. Get a grip! :p
