The reason why I chose this image for my avatar is that it's one of the few pics where I don't completely hate my face.
I know that feeling all too well - though I'm a little happier that I'm 50 lbs lighter than the pic I used and I can see more of my face, instead of my cheeks keeping it warm.

Your pic though reminds me a little of Matt Hardy - but thinner. Considering his female following it might not be a bad thing

I've got to say though, seeing myself is freaking me out!

Nice work!
Thank you very much!

Oh, and I love the aura around K'ehleyr, too.

Looks cool! You kind of remind me of my mother actually, only with darker hair.

Ha ha, Matt Hardy? If only ... But I can see the facial similarities. He's got the same neanderthal forehead as I do. My hair is washed, though.

But why? You three look great and perfectly normal to me. There's really nothing you should worry about. But as I said earlier, I don't want anyone to feel uncomfortable. If it isn't any fun to you anymore, please change it back to your normal avatar.

seriously, this is just about the only pic of me that I like . . .
I think I read on Cognitive Daily about how we're psychologically averse to images of ourselves
like if one were to see a picture of someone else who has the same physique, the reaction would be different than seeing the same sort of image of yourself

it's weird . . . I think I look best in the mirror, and any attempt at a self portrait I feel is awkward and not quite 'me'

Well, my avie isn't so much freaking me out as catching me unawares - I'll be skipping through a thread and all of a sudden I notice me from nearly twenty years ago looking straight at me....

That's it -- it's seeing oneself unexpectedly. It's disconcerting in a fun way.

And everyone here looks very good in their avatars. It was a great idea, Ncc1701.
