Hey,

I said earlier I was going to replace my Avatar and here it is, it combines my 3 favourite things: Apple, SciFi (and SitCom) and F1.

Some how I need to combine a Badminton shuttle cock, hockey stick (field), PA System and my Dog.

it looks pretty good, well done!

Just one query though: is that by any chance Schumi in the background?

Nice 'tar Ensign. Much better than the previous one.

Also as for limitations, if you do an animated avatar, you can only go up to 20k, so its pretty small. I'm maxed out and I managed to squeeze 24 frames of animation.:D

• Moloko (Spelt it right this time :))

I really need to put my Dog in there somewhere but there just isn't enough space (currently 19.5kb or something like that :))

Thanks duke, ur avatar is sweet, so are ur others! :)

I would love it if avatars were 128x128 pix but I suppose it would make the forums slower for dial up connections.

I hadn't realised it looked like the screen saver, thats kind of cool!

Image ready does simple animation. I was planning to put a tutorial up this past weekend, but it was just way too nice to be inside. So I'll do it this week when I get a chance. You have plenty of time anyway.

You might want to check out the other avatar thread and see some of the things posted in there, it might help a little.
