Welcome Steve, and you do some very nice work! I do indeed like the shot, but it is just a bit too busy for an avatar. Plus it is of the horizontal orientation, which usually doesn't work so good. You have a couple others that I think would work better. Thanks for stopping

I like the shot, but probably not enough to draw me in.

It is a good shot, and I think if he had a bit more muscle defenition he could be a sure thing. Thinking maybe 50/50

Thanks, I appreciate it! The one in my port with the white background was my background before.

I like the shot very much but IMO it doesn't work very well as an avatar. The subject is smaller in the shot and the colors are not real bright. You have a couple in your port that I believe would get much better attention as an avatar

Thankyou smile I change it quite often, but keep getting told to change it back to this one haha

I'd like to know your opinion, along with maybe which photo would be a better representation of myself as a llama.

Thank you.

Thank you.

would your current avatar get me to look at your port?

no

and that would be a shame, because I did look and I very much like your port. I even listed a couple. Impressive.

Your current avi is too dark and does nothing for you. IMO this would be a fabulous avatar for you:

Thank you. I've been struggling to pick out a flattering avatar.
Your portfolio is beautiful.

thank you so very much, and I feel the same about your port. Just wish you lived a bit closer, as a good model like you are few and far between!

Sky, I must be totally honest......you are by far one of the best, if not THE best art nude models on MM. I listed many of your works and your port is very inspirational.

Now, the problem with having a port such as your is that it leaves little room for an avatar. I have the same problem with my port. So in a nutshell, your avatar would not get my attention or want me to see more of your port. Which is a shame because it is simply sublime. So if you are looking for more traffic, I would suggest getting a avatar that will draw people to your port.

congrats on being open to making super art. I am doing an art nude shoot this weekend and your work has greatly inspired me!!

I'm so happy I've been able to inspire you! I'm definitely not the best, but I'll get better. smile

Yes, that's exactly my problem! Sometimes I censor a really good photo, but I hate doing that. And implieds with boobs this size are surprisingly difficult so I don't have nearly enough. Maybe I'll start doing some shoots specifically geared towards creating good avatar material. Thanks for your input!

Btw, sorry I posted twice. I completely forgot I did the first one--derp.

I always enjoy looking at your port. You have not only unique, but magnificent beauty. This avi is not bad......but the horizontal orientation I think will hurt you a bit. It is not bad, but IMO I think this is your best for an avi

WOW! Very pretty and love your smile. So if you were to get my attention initially I would say yes, I would look. however, the largest first challenge is to catch the eye. I am not sure that avi would catch my eye in a world of hundreds of avatars. I do believe this one may be a bit better at getting yourself noticed initially:

While I like the shot quite a bit, I think the business and lack of color will probably get me to not notice it

I like the shot, but don't think the pop involved would want me to see more. You do have a couple in your port that I do think would draw attention as an avatar. You do great work, perhaps you can choose those

Would your current avatar make me want to see your port?

no

What current artwork in your port would make me want to see your port?

this is the best one IMO

sorry Elle but no. the shot is too washed out and does not look professional.

You have some amazing eyes as well as a beautiful face and smile. Use them with a good photographer and I have no doubt at all that your port will be getting dozens of hits every day!

good luck!
