    Question Need ideas for forum avatar

    So, it's been about a year now and I should probably go ahead and make an avatar, but I'm drawing a blank on ideas. So, I could use some inspiration from anybody and everybody. No limits on genre or anything, just whatever you can think of.

    Thanks!

    Depends on what you want it to convey. Something personal, something hidden, something that you like, something funny...lots of ideas out there.

    I recommend two soybeans, three kernels of corn, a grain of rice, and eighteen planaria arranged so as to suggest world peace. Or maybe a cutout of a section of a satellite photo of Earth's day-night terminator showing high-relief clouds to suggest darkening.

    As Ascension said, it depends what you want to convey. My first thought from your handle was an eclipse, but equally you could use thunderclouds or a Ringwraith, or...

    ...and it doesn't even have to be about your name.

    I doubt if you'll get much of any use from us unless you give us a clue about your preferences - there are too many possibilities.

    You're the best person to devise something you like.

    That post is completely irrelevant. 0_o.... and besides are you a cereal designer? We all sure love cereal designers... as for the avi, a good old orc face is a sure solution for everyone

    This was always one of my favourite avatars on a different forum.., but i got told not to use it because the forum mods kept messaging me to tell me there was a problem with my avatar...

    Never use a big word when a diminutive one will suffice!

    In cases like this just use Google images and pick the first image you get back.
    A search for "Darken" netted me this:

    The cow is a ninja. They're masters of disguise, don't you know?
