What am I good at?
Playing games.

What am I alright at?
Reviewing games.

What am I not that great at?
Take a look to the left at my current avatar and you'll see, art.
After dozens of attempts, that was the best I could come up with.

And so I'm putting it out there for all of you. Can you do me a favor and make me a new avatar. (A favor worth 10GG to my favorite submission)

My current avatar is themed after me giving a game a thumbs up.

This is an early failed attempt. But I think I would like something along this theme most.

Also, my favorite color is yellow. And I like the idea of it being round like a seal of approval and being transparent around the circle.

Thank you! I look forward to seeing what others can do.

Is 10GG fair? let me know if it's not.

(Edit: One more clarification: I'm looking for an illustration, not just a photoshop. thank you.)

Good luck with your contest. I have no skillz, so I won't be entering.

Personally, I think your current avatar is just fine. It might help if you could point out some specific things about it that you don't like.

I might choose a slightly different shade of yellow, and I would probably flip it 180 degrees so the head is on the left. I would probably make the white background transparent. Other than that, I can't see anything that I would change.

It looks small to me, is it using all the space available?

I do like the original avatar better than the replacements suggested so far, but it seems like the avatar guy is contemplating his thumb rather than giving approval to something outside himself.

I was going to give it another few days but you're right, that's too long. I'm deciding to keep working with my current avatar. Thanks everyone for helping. I'll still share some geekgold.

You're selling yourself short on 16 pixels in Height and a transparent background.

Maybe these were a little more of what you were looking for.

After coming back with fresh eyes and a bit of photoshop, the illustrations by Runestone Lilliwinks really are what I needed. Thank you for the help!
