With all due respect for the frontman of the greatest band of their generation's aerobicising abilities...it may be a little late now. Rest in peace, Joe.

Would your choice of the cover of London Calling have anything to do with your impending repatriation, old chap? Nice avatar.

That and a small memorial for the recently departed. It seemed vastly appropriate. Thanks for the approval [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img] .

Perhaps it ties with Kate's own, Legolas. [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

They both rock! Kudos to Kate for her talent and originality. And to Legolas for being such a good model. [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

And thank you for the nod, Rimbaud. This fey also resembles slightly the drawing of Goldberry on the cover of my copy of Tales From The Perilous Realm. Thanks to Estelyn for picking up on that!

Hey, I got a new avatar. Can anyone tell me if they can see it? It only seems to work at certain times.

Oh, and Legolas, did you do that one yourself? Hmm...reminds me of some other picture I saw just recently...let's see...perhaps onewhitetree could help me out on this one? No, but really, it is cool. I'll vote for it.

Thank you, Cuthalion. It's good to see you back. I hope you will come and visit our new RPG forums. [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

Here's a bit of information about fey which accompanied that pic:

Quote:
The Fey are capricious, mischievous, arrogant, menacing, and sometimes downright evil and dangerous to humans. The Fey include elves, fairies, gnomes, trolls, goblins, and a host of other supernatural beings who are somewhere 'between men and angels'. Almost all of these beings have a very close connection to nature.
Not inappropriate for the Old Forest, eh.

The Mortal Elf's avatar is my personal favorite. It is that painting of a man kneeling before a woman and being knighted (I assume he is being knighted). i have yet to find out either title or artist of this painting.

Cúdae, I couldn't find a post to check for certain, but I think I know the painting you are referring to. It is called "The Accolade" by Edmund Blair Leighton.



Forgive me if this is not it, but I know I have seen it as someone's avatar. The painting itself is one of my absolute favorites.
