If you do not wish to request an avatar but still want a custom made one: The Adoption Center is Open!
OotS Avatar Artists: If your status has changed, please PM either Lilly or one of the other Arts and Crafts mods to change the list. Thank you.
To all others: It is considered bad form to use an avatar without asking permission of the artist. Unless, of course, you have it specifically made for you. Please ask before you use any of the avatars in the portfolios of the artists unless it states in their requisites or on their portfolio site that you may use the avatar without asking permission.
If after you've posted your request to the request thread twice and there is no response, please PM one of the active artists below. (Do not repost your request until at least 48 hours after your original request, please.)
If you are PMing a request please do not PM multiple artists. They don't want to waste their time doing a favour for you if you've already got someone else doing the exact same thing.
A slight suggestion: to save loading time to make a post, please make a link to your picture after 3 days to make it easier on dial-up.
This is simply a list of the posters who activley make and have made avatars in OotS style.

Gengy -- Portfolio: http://photobucket.com/albums/b400/w...otS%20Avatars/
Requisites: 50 post minimum (in places OTHER than all Silly Message Board Games), lots of patience (My avatars take time, because they are handled lovingly), and reference picture preffered, but not required. Yes, I animate.
Jannex: Portfolio --http://photobucket.com/albums/f47/tigerdreams/
Note 1: Any avatar not specifically labelled as available for common use, isn't.
Note 2: My avatar-making is... intermittent. Sometimes I'll be seized by a stick-figure-making fury, and sometimes I won't even open Paint for an extended period of time. If it isn't immediately apparent that I'm in one of my active phases, feel free to PM me and ask.
Prerequisites: If its from my portfolio, PM me to get permission. Anything from the Town or Personal subalbum is off-limits, anything from Requests must be cleared with its original user as well as myself. Warhammer 40K avatars can be tweaked to an army scheme of your choice if you provide example shots. GIF conversions on request.
Description: Haven't played D&D for many moons and even then it was 'Basic' D&D so don't know the races and/or monsters.
Requirements: Be as descriptive as possible, limited knowledge of AD&D kinda hinders my accomplishing the desired effect.
My current avatar has become a bit outdated, so I wonder if someone would be willing to make an avatar similar to the following for me:
Probably mid-twenties, though I'm not particular
Black Hair, mullet-like
Glasses/Goggles, whichever you wish
Some kind of magical armor (whatever kind you want, as long as it looks cool or something like that)
A magical sword (I imagine a flaming, shocking, icy weapon, but I'm free to whatever kind of awesome magical sword your heart desires)
A shield made from the skull of a dragon
Whatever else you'd like to put in.
Many thanks to anyone who does this for me, and many more thanks to Sneak, who's avatar I've been using for so long I can't even remember when it was made!
Ok, here's my first shot at it... let me know if you want any changes!
Still taking avatar requests! Visit my Portfolio!
Feel free to send me a request. I'll get to it as soon as I can.

Anyways, partially to celebrate coming back to these here forums after a while, I'm thinking a new avatar- much as I love my lantern-archon mephibotar, I'd enjoy having one of the same character's anthromorphed prettiness as well. ^^;;
Gender: Male appearence.
Equipment: Exceptionally large, floppy chevalier-style black hat with multiple buckles/clasps, tattered black cloak w/mantle (floor length), magical bracers w/moonstone buttons en suite, dark gray clothing and dashing, wind-flappy scarf. Large amulet resembling teeny-tiny human figure.
Sheathed at waist, split-bladed short sword w/clawlike crossguard and dark iron hilt, and quiver of arrows (of differing fletching/appearance).
In hand, ornate thick-bodied composite longbow, ornamented with two large magical gems.
Any other notable features (scars, tattoos, etc.): Particolored eyes, one gold, one blue, dashing 'dueling scar' across one cheek.
Skin color: Exceptionally pale.
Hair color: A fetching light silver-gray.
Race: Human appearence, actually anthromorphed lantern archon.
Class: Rogue/Order of the Bow Initiate/etc.; archer for short.
Pose you would like your avatar to be in: Winking cheekily whilst nocking an arrow to his bow, immediately prior, perhaps, to a display of archery calculated to impress any nearby tavern-girls.
Hope I didn't go overboard on the description- though I always do. ^^;
Anyways.....anybody feel free to take a crack at this, though if Ink's anywhere around, I did like the last one...*ninja*
My last request didn't go anywhere, so let's see if this new one interests someone enough.
His name is Mario. Mario Mario. But invert his color scheme (swap red and blue), give him a backwards "D" on his cap, and make him look like a lunatic with his tongue hanging out and his eyes all screwy, and you have...Super Dario! (Well, not really, you have Bizarro Mario, but I thought it fitting to give him his own personality and name.)
Hey! I did a Mario not so long ago for the Nintendo Iron Avatarist. I modified it so it now fits with your description:
Hope you like it. If not, it's ok! :)
Awesome! ;D Thanks!
However, do you think I could see how that would look with full sleeves and pant legs? I want it to be as faithful to the OotS style as that, but balancing it against Mario's comical chubbiness means I might have to forgo showing too much stick. ;D
Race: Half-orc half-ogre (basically just make him look like a really big orc)
Class: Fighter/Barbarian/War Hulk
Skin color: Green
Hair color and style: Black, long, and messy.
Equipment: Black pants, no shirt or shoes, giant (and I mean Gargantuan) Greatsword across his back, the point practically to the ground with the hilt above his head. He should be holding a large boulder in his right hand, or even tossing it up and down.
Pose: Standing straight on, a dumb grin on his face.
Well, I think that's it. Thanks a bunch for anyone who feels inclined.
Thanks to Trog & Simius for Jeder & Gric.
Here's the skinny:
* I have hazel/green eyes.
* I shave my head, but I'd like my avi to be wearing this crocheted beanie, except that it should be black and purple instead of whatever-color-that-is.
* I'd like him to be wearing this denim jacket, have it open (unbuttoned) in the front with...
* A black t-shirt with the orange cresents from this showing on the chest.
* Wearing faded black jeans (now dark gray) and black boots.
For pose, I'd like it friendly and smiling, maybe with the left hand in the jacket pocket and the right one waving.
I know that the jacket/t-shirt thing might be a bit complicated but if someone could please give a whack at it, I'd be very grateful.
I would like to request an avatar if you aren't too busy.
Hair & Beard: Brown, hair is short and the beard has some burnmarks (He is a smith)
Equipment: Dwarven waraxe, Towershield and Battleplate http://www.wizards.com/dnd/images/ros_gallery/83331.jpg the one on the right
Details: His equipment have runes on them
He is a wizard who casts spells in armour, through the runes carved on his equipment and he doesn't shy from closecombat. With all that armour I want him to look arcane/wizardlike
Current avatar made by Kpenguin , more cool avatars in my spoiler
I've been seeing all of the cool custom avatars, and have wanted one for a while... I just found this thread. (I need to use the search function more often) So, here is what I would like:
Equipment: I would like for the avatar to be wearing black pants, a white dress shirt (top button undone), and a black vest; the only real equipment he would have is a katana and a box of pocky
Any other notable features (scars, tattoos, etc.): Glasses (metal frame, semi-rectangular lenses)
Skin color: Asian (light tan)
Hair color: Black, short
Pose you would like your avatar to be in: Standing, with an open box of pocky in his left hand, a katana in his right (and maybe a version without the katana)
(this is pretty much me in my old con outfit, I can find reference pics if need be; or you can do a search for 'pockyman'... ^_^; )
I don't know what I can offer in thanks, other than my thanks, and maybe a bit of free Japanese to English translation (or Japanese to English, for that matter).
Thank you very much! ^_^

Awesome avatar by Ceika!
I don't suppose anyone would like to tackle the King?
A nice sticky Elvis would be greatly appreciated. If anyone cares to try, feel free to pose as you see fit, whatever famous outfit you see fit, guitar present or not, mic present or not. Your call. Just let's keep away from the fat, drugged-out version, please.
I'd rather be surprised, though I suppose if one is not inspired to a concept, the non-sticky avatar I have right now would be nice as a template.
The "velvet" aspect...? I dunno how to interpret that in stick-figure'ish. Then again, I'm not an artiste.
However, do you think I could see how that would look with full sleeves and pant legs? I want it to be as faithful to the OotS style as that, but balancing it against Mario's comical chubbiness means I might have to forgo showing too much stick. *;D
Ok, first avatar ever with long sleeves and pant legs! :P
I also did a crossover between the "complete" Mario and the "stick" one:
That way you have part of Mario's look and part of the OoTS look.
i'll repost this here since nothing got done with it on the last thread
hair: long dark brown
eyes: brown *
attire: bondage pants, black hoodie with a design on the front, black boots
actions: listening to music while reading a book or drawing.....
Reposting again. *If anyone could, i'd like a male lizardfolk druid, wearing only a loincloth out of leaves. *Dark red eyes, and dark green scales. *Glowing hands would be nice, and i'd like kind of a hunched over posture. *Oh, and if possible, i'd like a snake coiled around one of his limbs or torso. *
Edit: Also, i'd appreciate a hairless lizardfolk, with spikes maybe, but I couldn't care less if it had spikes or not. Thanks a bunch to anyone if they make this
I wish I had something to put here in this empty space....
Okay, now I got this baby up and running (resized it in Paint), but instead of a clear background, it's got a white one. Any suggestion on how to change that?
Hit Ctrl+F5 and you should have the new version of your avi where it is 117 X 117 and with a transparent background. I added very small dots on each side of the avi so it kept the format when I converted it to gif. Hope it solves your problem!
