This entry will cover my likes and dislikes on Gaia avatars.
Styles/items I dislike.
If this is your dream or current avatar, you suck.
For the record, I'm not mean enough to actually use people's real avatars, I just made all of these on tektek.
And similarities to others' avatars are coincidences. Sad, sad coincidences.
Styles/ items I enjoy
There's not much to say other then well-thought out avatars. Colour co-ordination and themes are a plus. If your theme is "lets show off how much gold I have" then chances are is that you can hire someone from the dressing room to make you a decent avatar.
-Visit Avatar Talk often
-Ask users for help on your avatar
-Check out the PAST winners in the original avatars area
-Play around in tektek.org
Most importantly, as long as you enjoy your avatar.
The avatars above usually accompany not-so-great attitudes, but hey if you're a nice person, with a rally-tard, then more power to you.
