I have a big problem with SRK avatars because I don’t really like any of them. I guess I’m not pleased by sparkles and colored streaks covered by outlined character portraits/sprites, a groove bar, your team name made slightly opaque and glowing with stylized lines going everywhere. I’ve made avatars trying to parody this style and instead of being thought of as having a wicked sweet avatar. I posted something about this in a different thread on another forum, and another thread here but those aren’t really the place to talk about it, so I made my own.
i posted this on another forum:
I’m not trying to say my avatar or avatars I’ve previously made are better, but I’d just like to know why people think that sparkles, colored glowing streaks, random white lines that make right angles, scanlines, and then running your masterpiece through 10,000 photoshop filters somehow makes a good avatar~ I don’t get it :\
