Phinn's Amateur Avatar Hour

Recommended Posts

Hello all -

In light of my recent misadventures with the Avatar shop, I've decided to stretch my lacking art skills into an attempt at drawing my own...

And here's the result! The artwork is all mine. I'm not confident the concept is entirely original, however (I've got a niggling twitch at the back of my mind that I've seen something similar on MD).

Please comment on both aspects if you will.

(The .jpgs would show inline while editing, but I couldn't post for some reason, so I had to add them as attachments).

dragon.jpg is a larger version, avatar.jpg is at 100x160. I'm thinking too much may be lost at that size...

Thoughts, criticism, input all welcome!

Thanks in advance.

- Phinn

Next step up in artistry is shading the contours, rather than just being an outline.

I agree it would be better to scale it so that it fits in the avatar-size box, and is not chopped off.

Yeah, needs to fit entirely within the avatar box area, heard about other people's getting turned down cos of that before. Also MD needs to be more visible from wheat I've seen around.

The neck to head bit looks....odd, can't really describe why unfortunately.

Dragon is pretty hard to fit in an MD avatar unless drawn with good skill (like Lexier's avatar), but urs looks cool....little bit change to proportion, remove the linefrom the bottom of the right wing so that it looks that it came from the body, and his head seem to look like Cartoon N/W dragon a little more fierce look will improve its appearance
here is the [url="http://i148.photobucket.com/albums/s28/anoop4real/DRagon3.jpg"]one[/url] i tried sometime back, you can find a few other in my papers Edited by dragonrider7

      I currently have no knowledge how much it is or if it's even purchasable, but I would like to buy/acquire one for a project. Send me a forum message if you have an offer.

      So as the topic says, I'd like to buy or commission an avatar for Esmerelda. She is a shy bookworm who spends most of her time in the MDA Archives. If you have an avatar in the shop that you think might suit her, or if you are skilled enough to draw one for her, please send me a copy of the avatar in FORUM PM. I will pay in creds as Esme doesnt really have gold of that sorts.

      I'm in search of this avatar:



      Anyone with knowledge of their whereabouts, please post here or send me a Pocket Mosquitoe.


      I'm also in search of a gravedigger-like avatar. There is no specific avatar, so if someone would draw one for me, I'd probably buy it (depending on looks). If someone has an existing gravedigger avatar, I'd be willing to buy that as well.

      Details: Wielding shovel


      Selling Blackthorn's avatar: [url="http://storenow.net/my/?f=3893"]http://storenow.net/my/?f=3893[/url]

      I enjoy the avatar, but it does not relate to my role. Will not sell if I'm not happy with the offers.

      Selling for: Coins; Credits (combined offers are appreciated)

      1gc = 10 credits

      [b]C/O: Brulant - 1 gold + 8 silver + 10 credits[/b]

      The following avatars are up for grabs
      (click image for a larger size)

      I accept coins and credits as bid. Rate: 1 Credit >= 2 Silver (the value of 1 credit is 2 silvers but I'll choose over credits if the top offers have the same value). Minimum bid is 2 silver or 1 credit as I can return them to the Shop is no body is interested.

      To bid, use this format: avatar ID - offer, example:
      235 - 1 credit

      The bidding for each lot will close after exactly 24 hours after the last bidding of that lot.

      [s]235 - 5 sc (Anonymous) FORFEIT[/s]
      [s]312 - 5 sc (Anonymous) FORFEIT[/s]
      389 - 5 sc (Annonymous) SOLD
      417 - 5 sc (ZenTao) SOLD

      Avatar shop has always offered me a choice between 8 avatars.

      Recently I noticed it was showing only 7, although it says there are 668 available avatars in stock. I believe it's not normal (but please correct me if I'm wrong).

      I checked with a few people and Burns appear to have the same problem. I thought it could be because I recently bought one avatar from the shop, but Burns did not for 2 years +.

      I haven't tried shuffling the selection. If needed for some testing, please let me know.
