    Hey VB, I'd like to get your take on these avatars I've been working on. I used an image of a Captain Marvel bust, a flame background I found on the internet and photoshop text.

    Here are my concerns--it seems too small to really see it (it looks much cooler larger) and I can't make up my mind on whether or not to include the Cardinal as a chest emblem. It just doesn't look right to me for some reason...

    Let me know if you have any pointers...

    Now those are outstanding.

    One of the problems I alwats have is optimizing a larger image down to 85x85. And working the team logos into it for those that want it.

    Your rendition is top notch quality. Very excellent.

    The only issue is that they come in at 15k and the rules are 10K max at 85x85.

    Learning to get them down to under 10k and still look good is a trick

    Here's my first pass at taking your image and working it into an 85x85


    [​IMG]

    Sometimes you have to hide the imperfections with a frame thing or a blended background to make sure that the main image is clear...and under the 10k limit.

    Easy enough.

    Just tell me that you don't have a bunch of Al McCoy posters hanging up in your crib and you don't yell "Zing goes the String" when your lady friend disrobes for you in those moments of passion.

    How about this as the basis and I work in a cool Suns logo or player or both somehow? Kind of that ESPN font, but unique to you....

    Thanks, that's better--the border seems to ground it somehow. I'm sticking with the Miracle Man one you made until the Cards lose (it's never seen a loss so far).
