And I'm utterly blown away by your efforts there Horatio :)

This should really help out anyone who has no time, no graphics editor and/or little experience with avatars. Well done mate!

But where the hell did you get all the car badges?  They're a brilliant idea :D

No probs man, it was a lot of fun. The car badges came from all over the place. There are still a bunch I didn't have time to edit the other night. I just knocked them down to size and added transparency around the edges where appropriate.

I will keep adding to it as time permits.

I'd go the VB logo but I'd be lying to myself and all of you aswell. I don't drink VB anymore, had been drinking it since early teens but now I find I am allergic to something in it. Quite sad. It was my cheap piss of preference from the tap. Now it gives me a rash and severe hangovers.

It's more a sentimental loss, there are better beers out there, ofcourse.

Anything but, basically. New if I'm low on dollars. Don't make up a New logo just for me, I wouldn't use it.
I will make something up soon!

I find it kinda hard to see the point of pre-made avs... but then, I am a unique and beautiful snowflake :P

If you don't know how to use image editing software, it's a pretty good excuse to learn.

I had to figure out how to get the alpha channel in PNGs happening in order to do mine; like BC says, PNGs shit on GIFs :D

For the noobs, you can find shitloads of raw material here http://www.google.com.au/imghp , mess with em with this http://www.gimp.org/windows/ , and host your own pics at http://photobucket.com/

I would as well if this was a tech forum, but not everyone who frequents this place will be in that category.

It is a great excuse to learn, but not everyone has the inclination. Other blokes sometimes would rather do something else with their time than learn to use image editing software ;)

I have all the artistic ability of a corn cob that's been dipped in cow shit. My skill with PS, meagre as it is, far outweighs my ability to be creatively artistic.
