Ok, I don't have photoshop, and when I had a trial version I wasn't really good with icons anyway. My friend did the one I have as my avatar, and I love it. Was wondering if anyone here has any of the band. I thought we could share. Very Happy

Thanks. Smile I'll let my friend know! He thinks he's horrible at making avatars, but he's not.

My one, I admid, is a bit cheesy, I did it with www.thedollpalace.com
But because the dolls are very skinny I had to edit my Guy-doll a bit with ms paint... Wink
I have all band members as "dolls" but at the moment not online (my site broke down)
I also have "Southpark"-Elbow on my harddisk What a Face

THis thread + looking through some old photos has prompted me to change mine (for a while at least). Smile

i was certainly tempted to use an elbow avatar, but i saw that as a bit like hero worship to be honest

OK, I know my avatar is a bit naff and I have been planning to change it.
However, I briefly said hello to Craig at the bar in Belfast and he recognised me from my Avatar !!!!
Weyhey! Thumbs Up!

I thought of that. Although I wanted to use an Elbow avatar since I rarely if ever use an Elbow avatar anywhere else. Though I do at lastfm now. And originally I had my Bruce Springsteen avatar and the other in the sig line. I thought instead I would put the Bruce avatar with his lyrics in the sig.
