The Avatar Assistance & Discussion Thread

This is a revival of the 'Who has the Coolest Avatar' thread. Instead of the standard 'my avatar is the coolest!' bragging and subsequent 'I like so and so's the best!' voting, you may use the thread for the following things:

:arrow: Showing off newly made avatars.
:arrow: Complimenting someone else's avatar.
:arrow: Asking for Help with Avatars (design, not mechanics)
:arrow: Asking for Avatar Requests.

Please try to avoid posts such as 'mine is the best!!' and 'yours sucks'. Try to offer constructive feedback/criticism.

Just as a reminder, and before you ask for help with Avatars (check the links in the quote below), an excerpt from the Forum Rules:


:arrow: Avatar Size Limits
The maximum size for avatars in this forum is 64 pixels wide by 80 pixels tall. Please make sure your avatar falls within these dimensions. If you go outside of the dimensions we will help you get it fixed. Repeatedly going outside of the dimensions (after explanation) may result in having your avatar disabled. For more information please <a href="/viewtopic.php?t=6">click here</a>. Click here for an avatars tutorial.



Also, if you're looking for Avatar Links, check the Avatar Links thread.

Ok, so this is the avatar thread; I guess I can post something :)

This is the head of Kül Tigin's statue found near the Orkhun Monuments of the Orkhun Valley in Central Mongolia. Kül Tigin was the brother of Bilge Khaghan (716-734; ruler of the II. Eastern Tujüe Khaghanate) and the commander of Türküt (Tujüe) armies. Here's a better pic of Kül Tigin's head:

I know this may not be a "cool" avatar but I put it anyways; after all, my user name is Bilge Khaghan 8-)

My avatar is Xu Shu, from Romance of the Three Kingdoms VIII. I chose him for a variety of reasons. It was the coolest picture of him in any Rot3K game to date. One of the reasons I chose him is because I thought his character in the book was really fun. I also chose him because he is supposed to have been a Taoist, and I am interested in early Taoist philosophy. Finally, the weirdest reason I chose him is because his death was never mentioned in SGYY. There is even some mystery surrounding what happened to him in real life, so some people believe that he never actually died. I am writing a novel right now about immortals, and Xu Shu makes a brief appearance.

My avatar is a flowery Zhou Yu ^.^ (it wasn't originally him, let's just assume it is, okay?) 3 people have worked on it and I'm proud of him, I don't care what everyone else thinks. Move over, Zhang He! :lol:

The same with my username, Athrun Zala.
