Last week, one of the artists I watch on FA was having a quick and cheap commission sale, so I pounced and got this lovely picture of me sitting reading a book. I’ve also turned it into an avatar, which I’m using just about everywhere now. =^.^=

I have to say that such a well-drawn avatar is extremely refreshing. The book-on-pedestal picture I’ve been using for ages is something I’d created almost ten years ago, and since I didn’t have very good Blender skills at the time, it reminded me too much of those times. While I am better now, I’m still not as confident in my abilities as I am in others’, so having someone else’s artwork as my avatar, especially when it’s of my character, is easier for me to deal with than if it was my handiwork.

Plus, the art style used just about screams “Good for avatar!”, and it really works well! It’s almost soothing, actually. =^.^=

I now realize I've known quite a few people with book-reading icons, myself included. In each case, somebody other than the user did the drawing.

Rhari's work is outstanding, and yes that image is perfect as your avatar. :)
