To my taste all avatars with DRAGONS are the best. [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img] I can't help saving them all! If my comp runs out of memory... [img]smilies/mad.gif[/img] well just let nobody feel guilty [img]smilies/evil.gif[/img]

I have to say that I love Saucepan Man's new one, that one is so great, it is one that I would actually consider stealing [img]smilies/evil.gif[/img] but of course I am a nice person and would never do that.

And I have another person to give a vote to...
But I sadly can't find where they posted. They have an avatar of what I think it an exploding Supernova, or some other picture taken out in space. I love pictures like that, I think they are very beautiful.

In space? Hmmm... Haven't seen it. Maybe a firwork? HerenIstarion has a exploding firework. And, for a matter of fact, so do I! But I haven't seen a supernova avatar. I'll have to look for one.

Well I actually found the person with the avatar that I like, it is Pukel-Man.
It is not a firework, It is some kind of outer space picture. But it is very colorful, with bright greens, reds and purples. I like it a lot.

I love all the animated ones, for example: Saucepan Man's and Airehiriel's. I think those are too cool! I also like LadyElbereth's, Brinniel's, and EressiŽ Ailin's. All those cool fairy tale-looking goddesses!

Thank you, Lady Iverin! And seeing your own avatar, I can see why, with the same artist and all.

There was this one pic by the same artist of my current avatar I really liked; I believed it was titled something like Lady Darkness, but it's not quite appropriate for this site. I could crop it to make it appropriate, but then I would have to host it somewhere to use it as an avatar. I hope to have my own website someday so I can do these sort of things, but I haven't found the time and I don't have the experience.

I'm thinking about changing my avatar in a few weeks. The picture I like is a slightly different picture than what I've had before; instead of the contrast of the colors black and blue, it is red and black. It's also a bit darker than what other avatars I have used. But then again, I might find another one I like even more.

I love everyone's avatar. Honestly, there are so many great avatars out there, I cannot choose a particular favorite. But I tend to like avatars with fairies and other sorts of people in it best.

EDIT: One neat avatar I would like to point out is Lyra Greenleaf's. I just noticed it and I really like it. I also like Vanima's, Ithaeliel's, burra's, and I could go on....

Mine is really unoriginal, but I'll find a good one someday [img]smilies/rolleyes.gif[/img] , so these are my favorites:
First Place: ElentariGreenleaf's twinkling star. I don't know why, but I just really like it.
Second Place: Saucepan Man's, errm, whatever that is. [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img] I really am not quite sure what that is, but anyway, I like it!
Third Place: Beren87's Mario turtle dude. I have always liked those- except when I'm actually being eaten by one on my gameboy. [img]smilies/frown.gif[/img] [img]smilies/rolleyes.gif[/img]
Fourth: Bethberry's ummm...ice dragon? Correct me if I'm wrong. [img]smilies/redface.gif[/img]

Isn't it so peaceful looking? And while it doesn't strictly follow the definition of an avatar I liked it better than the ship with eyes! [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]

Thank you, Iverin! Maikafanawen got her avatar from that place also. The picture itself (not just her avatar, but the real picture) is lovely, but the look on her face is a little freaky.

Just noticed: elven maiden Earwen got her avatar there, too.
