One of my favorites by Da Vinci: St. Jerome... You know, that sketch with him sitting on a rock next to a lion resting*. I found it and said, "What better picture to start on my 500th post path..."

I love Dante, maybe I should use him next as an avatar for my 550th or 600th post mark...

Thanks

Of course it still looks like an ewok, which adorable little bear would wear a hood over its fuzzy wuzzy head? Why can't ewoks wear pink?

Eomer's new Snoopy avatar is quite possibly the most stylish version I have seen of the little dog yet!

Imladris' is also very beautiful, even though I cannot figure out what it is exactly... (Is it feet?) But who said there's never beauty in abstraction?

It is, indeed, feet...her feet to be precise. You can find more of the artist's works here

I was looking through her paintings, I saw this one, and I looked at her feet, and I just knew they would make a beautiful avatar. So I cut it down to size, upped the contrast, and there you go...

I like Imladris's new one, the faerie feet, the colour is very enchanting as well.
Sharku's is funny, with the little green snake/worm guy "Smiling is for hypocrites", hahaha too true.

Oh and Shelob's is too cute, I love snakes!!
