I noticed some issues with the image I made for Mr. Kou, as such, I fixed it and re-uploaded:

Hmmm...I don't know what to suggest though that wouldn't be really vague or complicated or look not-horrible.

I like the idea of maybe a pseudo-Mesoamerican styled donkey with vivid dreamy fluoro colours and texture.
Yeah.

So, instead of testing my drawing talent mightily, I decided to make due with what I could scrounge up... and I came up with this:

Edit: Unfortunately, all of the originals were too big in filesize to be valid avatars... so I had to mess with the colors a bit to drop the filesize.

When I say to people that I think the moon is waning, I get a "you crazy" look. So I just shut up these days. You fixed it, plus other points I may have missed, so thank you yet again!

Not to be mine avatar, of course, but I'd ditch the shadow.

The tail would have to go, of course, but I think that's the coolest "Pin the Tail on the Donkey" template!

I know, right? [:P]
Spoiler:
Yeah, in looking at it again... there still is a tiny flaw on the circle. There seems to be issues in Photoshop with shrinking circles. They always tend to end up with 2 sides being much flatter than the other 2 and that stands out like crazy sometimes. Now, however, I only notice because I am especially sensitive to the issue. Oh well, If I strive for that much perfection I will drive myself crazy.

As long as you are cool with it, that's the main thing, O'彄.

I added one with no shadow, but a gradient background with rounded corners. That way I could also ditch the border while maintaining the aesthetic.

I made a different version of that logo using a square rather than a circle. I think I prefer this one, but the circle one makes much better use of space.

Could I have two <í> (as in <íí>) like that but with no shading and a transparent background? [:)]

I think I could make that happen. With or without a border?

I’m not sure what border means in this context. [:S]

I’m somewhat tech-retarded...

I'm referring to the 1px line around several avatars. I'll likely make both anyway and post 'em.

Ah, that border!! I thought you meant a border around the letters, hence my confusion. [:)]

I’ve adopted the borderless image as my avatar! Thanks! [:D]
Edit: And it would seem you updated your avatar the second I posted this, Thrice!!! [:O]

Yay! Lemme know if you'd prefer them in a different typeface.

Indeed. I thought it was time for a change myself. Thoughts?

Also, can anyone spot the somewhat hidden meaning?

[O.O] Guys, I think Des has been abducted and replaced by a mimic. No way in hell real Des would say something like that.
