So, I seem to be finding myself doing more and more of them as of late.

So AT, how do you feel about backwards avatars? Like doing them? Like them, but can't make them well? Also a question towards some of the regulars, are there any AT'ers that specialize in backwards avatars? (Can't think of anyone off the top of my head. Or rather I know I'm forgetting names.)

Also, I'll do rates, if you ask nicely. ;D Just suggestions, maybe a -/10 if a defined number comes to mind.

The backwards avatar you have right now is
so fluid and pretty looking! I love backwards
avatars because it gives you a challenge in
organizing the items/finding the right balance
of the avatar. I don't make them though, mostly
because they are trainwrecks lol. :B

Thanks, glad you think so. (I was surprised that I had never thought to combine these items this way before last night. Derp.)
Yeah, I seem to be finding myself enjoy doing them more as of late.
I doubt they're as bad as train wrecks judging by you're current. (Mm. Dat texture.) But, who knows, you might come up with one someday. biggrin

Haha become the backwards avatar ~specialist~! lol
That's the problem! Im too attached to texture so backwards
avatars usually are harder to achieve a textured look :c

I love backwards avatars, and am always impressed by anyone who can pull it off! I can pull them off, but it takes some effort, and I've been having fun with faces lately, so haven't been making any.

I remember Sher!ock used to specialize in backwards, along with one other whose name I can't quite remember.

I made a backwards rainbow avi blob once, wasn't too thrilled with the process and lack of detail vs a traditional avi.

I will say that there are a LOT of hidden poses though, so that's a fun bonus.

I'd like to know what you think of my avi, trying to get a general consensus.

Sher!ock used to make a ton of backwards avatars.
Whenever I make blob avatars, they tend to be backwards. However, I rarely make just normal backwards avatars {i.e., non-blob ones}.

I remember there used to be a time whenever a standard rule for rating avatar was: Must be facing forward and standing. xP

I like them. I think it's a nice twist on avi making.

Hahaha Oh the woes of loving texture. I wish I could do texture, but alas, I'm terri-bad at it.

Yeah, that face you have on now is awesome. (If I recall you've always done some really awesome faces.)
OH YEAH. Sher!ock did a ton of awesome ones.

Fair, I can see the the process being not as exciting.

I think I like the idea of the avatar, and the color matching must have been a b***h, But The only thing I think I would complain about is those teensy-weensy bits of copper-ish orange on the feet, buut as far as I can tell the color is probably a part of the boot and there isn't much you can do about that. :/

Oh, how the times have changed in the AT. XD

Right? It's a nice change every once in a while that's for sure.

The copper is also on the hand and shirt, it's like... spread and some junk, right? RIGHT?!

Yeah, I can't block it so I added some. Thanks for taking a look at it!

You're right! It's there, I missed it the first time, DON'T BEAT ME. XD No problem, always glad to give thoughts.

It takes a definite artistic eye to make a backwards avatar; that, or a really powerful style eye, where you know how to use regular items backwards to look just as stylish from the front as it does on the back. Yours is very artistic, all the swirls and pretty colors coming together. And all the close shades mesh well into one another, instead of just sitting on top.

If you rate me, just know I wanted to build up height somewhere that I don't normally do so (The shoulders in this case) and it just kind of... died from there XD
