I'm gonna have to go with all the ones Dukestreet made and Hemingray's. I like that one a lot. Simple, elegant, and to the point.

I'd have to go with Beej's smoking pr0n 'tars as well. Those make me :) every time I see them.

Rower's is pretty damn cool too.

The hardcore corn one is my favorite... but bambi is a close second...

always kinda wondered what they were smoking ;)

I like eyelikeart's as well... and krossfyter's new one is nice, i love the colors...

It's a smoking fawn (Bambi) which rhymes with pr0n. I guess he's got some sort of theme going— corn, pr0n, and fawn. What's next, swan? I liked the animated smoke on the smoking corn.

God only knows. :rolleyes:

Thanks for the votes y'all.

I feel mine's getting kind of stale, since I've had it for a while now...

I'm going to try an update here soon, but I hope I don't ruin it!

Great thread.

First of all, I like to say that all 'tars are great, because it shows how creative us macusers are.
+ I guess that a lot of avatars are somewhat the owners favorite.

But if I have to give grades, here goes:
Ensign, Dukestreet, Jefhatfield, Rower.
4, 3, 2 and 1.

My favorite is Rower.

i never got to see the sam jackson eating the burger one...

too bad i missed it. that sounds the best to me though.


perhaps a dumb question but... what do people use to make theirs? they are just animated gifs or what? which program is best...

thanks for the wink..... ha

so that solves the still frame problem... and the animated ones would i guess just be animated gifs. what do you more animated people use for it...

Photoshop and ImageReady. Photoshop for the initial design, and ImageReady for the animation.

ahhh. now i see..

i had gotten the impression that it was animated.... man, that was a let down! haha.

i was surprised to see you'd animated your current one kross, as i think you'd said somewhere you weren't sure you'd be able to.

looks good.

Krossfyter's 'tar with Samuel Jackson was brilliant! Rower_cpu has a good on too.

They all add a bit of colour to the forums though. I'm looking forward to getting my own :)
