Re: August 2008 Contest Discussion

Well Doug, I like your present Avatar. It sort of represents the frustrations of life. However I will try to cook up something. I wonder what sort of mood you want to express in your new avatar.

Unless someone is holding onto their entry for the last minute, it looks like 100% of the entries will be in the top 5.

Re: August 2008 Contest Discussion

Is it just me or does everyone else have the same or similar problem? At 50 x 50 pixels, I can't truly see the submissions. Wouldn't it have been easier on the eyes to have them submitted a tad larger and scale them down later?

Just call me too old and blind...

Re: August 2008 Contest Discussion

I have acquired a new found respect for Icon makers!

BTW, Doug... I like your present Iconic Identity Bestest!

Janet, I agree they are small.. but they are life size and the way they would be seen on the www so I think it is appropriate for judging.. (Besides when I shrunk mine it helped hide all those mistakes)

Re: August 2008 Contest Discussion

I have found that I have a talent for making lousy avatars. I am waiting to submit until I come up with one I like or I run out of time.

It would help if Doug had more information in his profile.
