    I like the lay me down one, because of your forum initials. Maybe just brighten up the eye like in #2. IMHO.

    I like parts of the following...

    #1 - cards
    #4 the lettering
    #5 the crown

    I think if you found a way to combine those, you would have something better than the current 5 choices. Good job though either way. You are having some great ideas.

    Hi Guys!

    Thanks so much to y'all for your valuable comments.

    I do like the font too in the 4th sample and this was done through TLC - i think i have 4 overlapping font images to come up with that effect.

    I tried to spell out my forum nic but it doesnt come out nice so i think its better that i just have my initials.

    Logomanica: i will play around with the crown and try to see how i can integrate it well with the image.

    So here it is - my new avatar/logo - weeeeeeee!

    Thanks a lot again to yall.

    About the crown.... as in any logo design, it is easy to get caught up trying to put everything that we need in a design but the basic rules is: less is more.; or simplify; I would say either the crown or the cards but you have an image of eyes on there and you don't want to be too crowded. I think because of the jack, king, queen in your name, that the cards are appropriate. Also, if the initials were in black or a darker color like a wine or burgandy that it would be a bit more classy; but... that is just my opinion.
    Other than that, your Avatar looks great!

    This is where am gonna need to shout for HeeeeeeLLLLppp!

    thanks Cybernetico!

    tyvm too Greg for the very nice comments. I agree to all the points you have raised - very well said! :thankyou:

    yes, i believe that a black font would make it look more classy/classic and am just about to upload it now but am wondering why there is still that gray background there. I have exported it to transparent png format and in transparent gif format but that gray box still continues to stalk me! rofl..

    i tried removing the white backing then exporting it again to both transparent png and gif formats and uploaded them but Grrrrrr - that gray box still appears. Unggghhh..

    :helpnow: ( blonde moments for me?) lol..

    For Thess

    Hi, here is something I thought would be appropriate for your Avatar. You shouldn't have any problem. One is a jpeg that probably won't do but the other is a trans png that should work. I added 2 more so between them all, something should work for you.

    Avatar area is square so the rest is filled in by the forum software program...try making the background the same color as the header where the avatar shows and it will disappear. Make the logo background RGB input 225,228,242.

    Sizing it 150X125 may solve that. What did you use to resize to make it avatar size?

    yes Greg, i typed in those values in the RGB input.

    Katie - i didnt specify any size... i just dragged the outsides of the canvass to resize the canvass such that the avatar is enclosed in a square box, lol.

    it is 11:17 pm here.. maybe am just too tired and my brain cells sleepy now, rofl.

    i will just check out this thread tomorrow.

    thanks a lot again katie and greg for your prompt reply!

    nite!!!!

    hey there Shelly... thanks for the help! however, i can't upload the image as it exceeded the allowed file size.

    anyway, following katie's advise, i resized the image and voila, the lines disappeared. Weeeeeeee!

    so ok.. i think this avatar project of mine can now be considered as completed! :announ:

    and a Huge THANK YOU!!! to all the Admin Staff for all the support, advise, comments they have given.
    :thankyou:
