    So it is time to have a face that looks more like me!!

    I created this one:
    [​IMG]
    not knowing if this was a forum that I would want to be part of long term. Also not knowing that there was quite a bit of "real life" interactions that I would want to be part of...

    so now I'll be changing to this one that I feel is more in line with my real life appearance (I may even dye my hair purple to match because I love it)

    Updating my avatar from [​IMG] to [​IMG] . The only change is not including glasses (or my readers) in the avatar. I wear them a lot for laptop work, gaming, and reading anyway. I should probably even use them more than that. However, it would be a lot less surprising if we ever meet at a live event to not show them in my avatar than to do so.

    I miss them, though. Makes my avatar look rather bland. Meh. All for the sake of accuracy, though.

    My avatar was only meant to be a placeholder that kind of stuck around, it served its purpose at the time but I was never able to contact the artist and I had to edit it too much to make it fit so it was time to choose something else.

    My new avatar is by an artist named Simon Goinard, please go here to see his website, he is a brilliant artist and has been kind to let me use one of his works as my face here :)

    I'm so happy to be able to use this as it fits me so much better and the hair at least fits me more physically irl ^^ :joy
