    not sure i like the border but it does draw your eye to their faces more--which is exactly what i wanted.

    random:

    okay, so he's not really a god, nor does he profess to be one, but he is the savior of his world... and he's kinda supernatural anyways :P

    [​IMG]

    maybe i'll change it if i have time.

    ... i seem to be going through a phase with the white overlay borders :P

    Um...I think Cthulhu is gonna have to be resized...

    Oh, and is that guy from your Episode av the same one that plays Gowron? I just happened to notice his eyes..

    As for the other avs...I'm kinda undecided, myself.

    ^Great minds think alike, DeVario. Let me know if mine is too similar to yours. (I hadn't seen your entry when I made mine.) From what I can tell, it's the same frame, but we did different things with the lighting and cropped it in a different place.

    Ah man, great minds do think alike. I'm totally cool with it, but if others feel they are too similar then I'd be more than happy to enter another another of my Theme ideas. This is just the first one I thought of.

    Edit: I'm a nice guy, so you can have the Odo trashes his quarters avatar Vulcan Princess. I'd like to enter my other Theme entry. One of the first glimpses we get of Deep Space 9.

    This is possibly one of the most beautiful icons I have ever seen. This particular type of icon is known as Christos Pantokrator (Christ the Almighty). While I am not Orthodox myself, I find their iconography to be extremely beautiful and inspiring. (And one of my fanfic characters IS in fact Greek Orthodox, because of the respect I have for them.)

    I like the first one. :)
    Alright, "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn!" What did I just say? :alienblush:

    It needs to be resized to 140px, though.

    I checked him out on IMDb and apparently it is Gowron. Good call, I haven't noticed the resemblance before.

    Agreed, especially since Vic was openminded and didn't discriminate anyone. :)

    Okay I've tried to resize The Great Old One:
    [​IMG]
    Oh and WWW, what you just said was "In his house at R'lyeh dead Cthulhu waits dreaming"

    As for the Theme entry I'm going to go for the first one especially as my second one is too similar to NG's excellent entry.

    Dukat does have a rather creepy expression on his face there, doesn't he? Was that from "Sacrifice of Angels," or "Waltz"?

    ^ It was from Waltz. I cannot quite remember the scene that it's from but I think that it was one of the phantom Weyoun appearances
