Re: ENTER! Misc Avatar Contest: Violet

^Yup, I agree.

I myself have after some consideration came to the following conclusion: number four as cool as it is, there's just not enough violet in it, number two, again same reason, the green is just too strong, number two is somehow just too generic, and five and six aren't violet enough, but purple a bit too much. And number one is just about right, and is actually well suited for an actual avatar (the reason I put it on place number one).

I just might go with one, but will think about it. Thanks for the input.

Right - found something real

A fluorescent scorpion shown under ultraviolet light. (Hope that's not stretching the contest theme too far!)

Re: ENTER! Misc Avatar Contest: Violet



I'm surprised nobody went with the obligatory "that's no moon" quote, so you're off the hook.

Anyway, I've been torn between my first and my last entry, and I've decided to go with my first entry, even though I'm certain the last one would have gotten more male votes.

But I'm not gonna be that shallow, the sex sells routine, and I'll go with the more artsy first entry. So, here's my entry:
