Getting Silly with an Old Avatar

Post by Charles Haacker » Sat Dec 16, 2017 11:52 pm

I'm not sure why I did this. The original was a scale mockup of an Easter Island mo'ai that I found years ago at a museum (2010 according to the exif). I had long ago separated and replaced its background with the center graduation you see. I'm still using it on a couple of sites as an avatar because of course I think I am hilarious. Today I revisited it for reasons not well understood and decided to, well, take a look...

That is way cute. He makes me smile. Great job integrating the eyes in there beneath the glasses!

I absolutely see the resemblance! Fun, fun, fun.

I'm ROTFLMAO gasping for air and wiping the tears from my eyes, it's so funny. As for any resemblance... that frown needs to be upside down. :thumbup:

I am delighted that you are delighted, Duck! I went back this morning to (1) show that those are actually my eyes and glasses and (2) add a drop shadow because I thought it needed it.
