Thrice - if you find some inspiration from this idea, I would be over the moon (or over two suns ;) ).
Hmmmm, I'm not that great at actual art... Could you maybe find a few images with sun(s) that you like and I can see what I can do.

I particlularly like this one:

You'd have to cut out a part of the image so the plane isn't visible, though (WoTS is a fantasy world).

This could be an alternative in a different style:

That second link isn't working...

Hmmmm... I have some thoughts.

Orange/blue border

Black border

No border, rounded corners (subtle difference to the previous one)

I changed the "second" sun to be a more faithful copy of the first one. Sorry if the image quality isn't good... it was too big of a file to use as an avie on this site so I switched to web colors which drops the size but also screws with the colors.

I have a new Avatar, just as a temporary solution. What do you think? Also, does anyone remember my old avatar. I really liked it, but it seems its gone.

I'm a fan. My only suggestion would be for his lower body to fade out.

Also, now that you mention it, I don't remember your old avatar.

Thanks Thrice!

I'll try one of these for size. They are a little pixelated but it's a forum limitation, right?

Somewhat. You are limited to like a 20kb image file. If you know a better way to drop file size, I'm open to it and I can try on the unaltered images, which I think I still have.

Huh. I was able to upload a PNG for my avatar. I just made it at the size it was needed, exported as a PNG, and it just did its thing - no complaining about file sizes.

There is a limit listed. It just so happens that your current avatar is well below the size limit at 5kb.

Does anyone have some ideas for a Solresol or Laadan avatar?

If you feel like a hidden message, Solresol can be represented with colors, so you could come up with some word or phrase and make a color representation of that your avatar.

I just wanted to come back here and say a big thank you to Thrice. I really like my avatar, and I would never have bothered to create one if it weren't for you. You rock!

Not sure precisely what this is... but it started life as a stylized wing and kinda spiraled out of control.

The above's color scheme was most certainly inspired by you... as was the original wing motif. Thoughts? (I also have the original full-size version of the wings if you like 'em. Though those ones aren't colored at all.)
