As a complement to the "Why Did You Pick Your Name?" thread, let's talk about your avatar! I've actually had four avatars during my time at the Tower, but I've worn this face for at least a decade. I chose my avatar because I liked his vibrant red hair and just the general use of color in the piece overall. I don't really have any kind of response to the blindfold - I just thought it was a cool aspect of the piece? The artist is Christine M. Griffin, and it was done as a commission, but not for me. Here's the original and a blurb of the piece: I've brightened up the image a little bit, simply because it was a bit too depressingly colored. I also gave him a slight smile and changed the bandana from green to blue. I've attempted to reach out to the artist quite a few times, but they've never responded. They were last active on epilogue.net in 2009 and they didn't have a presence anywhere else, so I don't think I'll ever hear from them. So, why did you choose your avatar?
