    Yet another avatar thread. I was just wondering how many of the users with avatars made their own avatar.

    ha, this is a good one - I think since I've been on mac rumors, there has been an explosion in avatars - I might have made more than anyone else, but there are some truly slick ones out there now.

    I can't wait to see what the next avatar contest give us.

    my first 3 avatars were OS 9 icons I made into avatars...

    my current is something I kinda borrowed from an OS X icon...stylized it...and it's actually part of my corporate logo...

    I wouldn't have made an option for you if you didn't make a lot of them.

    I like to think my new one is pretty slick. :D

    The Apple was meant to move like that. It adds some personality. I'm just amazed I was able to keep it that high quality and keep it 20k.

    A friend of mine made mine for me. I have one that anamates the eyes.. but it was too big of a file to upload.... so I use this one. He says that its me... he calls me "shady"... so this is the "shady evildead" icon.

    Some of mine are pics off the net I've edited, and some of them are made completely by me. I think I need a 'tar change...

    Mine is simple so far. A little work in Illustrator and I had something that resembled the logo I created for my "almost a company".

    I have no real motivation yet to animate it in any way. Perhaps, making the ring spin around the Saka character would be good.

    Duran, how many frames was it?

    I used Strata 3D Base, Photoshop, and GIF Builder to create my 3D avatar. It took about 4 hours of work, and 72 whole entire frames! The image is only 16K. :eek:

    And, in case you couldn't tell, it's original, because it's a tad shaky. :p

    It's 15 frames. My objective was to keep the colors intact, the quality of color is a lot more important to mine. How many colors did you use?

    I think I used either the "Best pallete (sp)" option or a 6^3 pal. option. I also used frame optimization, which usually is helpful for any animation with more than 70 frames or so. :p
