Yeah, well it looks unique. I say that only the REAL THING should be able to use KK's picture as an avatar. Besides, avatar should represent the person who uses it. That's why for example in CRPGs have so many to chooce from to make sure it fits you and your character. Plus, a well designed avatar may contain a message, perhaps it tells the others about the person behind the avatar. Ok, I shot myself in the leg... I am not really a 50's film noir gangster but that is still me in the picture (though rotoscoped for a school animation project). And it may tell somebody that I am interested in rotoscope animation and film noir themed stuff aswell.
Always dream and shoot higher than you know you can do. Don't bother just to be better than your contemporaries or predecessors. Try to be better than yourself.
