    My current fad for avatars and specially on this forum is a variation of the Linux penguins. There are avatars that I really admire, especially the ones of the admins and the mods of this forum. One's that I have tried to copy but am unable to emulate, my skills at gimp being very amateur at best... But I like the one that I have now...

    Currently, I have the free speech flag as my avvy (the hex codes for the colors plus the "C0" make the HD-DVD processing key). I previously had a green electric jellyfish thing I learned how to make in Photoshop ages ago. I can't make it in GIMP because I don't have a chrome filter. I also have a blue jelly as my flash drive's icon.

    I made my avatar on this forum and on Arch's forum. On Cafelinux's, though, I took a picture of a red panda and cropped it, since it was so cute. ^_^'

    I always make my own. Currently, my avatars on various forums are:

    I sometimes draw random, abstract things with Gimp and use those for an avatar, if I think the result represents my current state of the mind in some abstract way. Most of time, though, I use pictures I find from the Internet -- sometimes with my own modifications.

    I find a cool wallpaper and with my magical powers twist and form it into a shape recognizable in most places as my avatar. Oh, did I mention I add at times things to my avatars?
