This is a continuation of my earlier post ‘Which anime blogger has the most awesome avatar?‘. But in fact, the real motive of making this post is the guilty feeling from overlooking Kluxorious’s avatar in that post. She clearly was hurt by such omission, so much that she went ‘hiding in the corner‘. So I decide to do some make up post and since I’m doing it, I will also present more fantastic avatars I ran into recently. Please be noted that these avatars are the ones that impress me personally and aesthetically. My choice has nothing to do with the quality of the blogs. Here we go!
Chikorita157: There are two great things about this avatar. Firstly, the girl(Mio) is doing something (in this case, reading) not just smiling or smirking at the viewers like most avatars. Secondly, this avatar cleverly utilizes the background to enhance the emotional effect of the whole picture. The bubbles adds dreamy and ecstatic feelings to the avatar; fantastic!
Funk: when in doubt, go with something cute. It always works, at least to me. Funk’s avatar is simple, clean and friendly. Plus, it’s not something too generic or too random.
Guy: Only a few of us use non-anime avatar (Author comes to mind). I think using anime avatar is more accessible in the aniblogsphere and I personally think that anime characters look lovelier than something real but Guy proves me wrong. His ‘melon cat’ is funny, lovely and accessible.
Halfadeckshort: The eye is the most sophisticated part of the face and it’s only natural that many of us choose the eye as their avatars. Some example include Executive Otaku, Steve of AUtaku and SilverWolf (is he a blogger?). Halfadeckshort’s avatar impresses me the most mainly because it made me look so hard into that eye trying to figure out what’s in it and in the end I had no idea what it was. I suspected that it was something burning.
Janette: Janette has just changed her avatar and I must say that she’s done the right thing. Her old avatar, the one which raised hand to the viewers, was somewhat…offensive, like she didn’t want to hear what I wanted to say(I am talking about the avatar, not Janette herself, of course). This new avatar is super cute thanks to the kitty. And I can’t take it out of my mind because I’m not sure if she is going to kill the kitten.
Kairu: I love this one because its expression caught my interest very well. It made me wonder if she was afraid, embarrassed or was in some kind of pain. What do you think?
Kluxorious: as I said earlier, klux is the queen of this post. I don’t think I have to say how unique this avatar is; it’s not some screencap, anime art, RL photo or any animal. It is a logo with her name on it and the posture of the woman, looking up, is also very interesting. I wonder where she got this avatar from?
Kyokai: The girl is sleeping and she seems to be having a good dream. This avatar does not stand out at first sight but shines upon closer inspection. I love the tranquility and peaceful feeling radiating from this avatar.
Sergio: another avatar with emotions and depth, this one actually makes me feel warm and fluffy. Another subtle details that makes this avatar all the more complex is the plastered wounds on her face. She must have been through a lot and yet, she is smiling warmly; wonderful!
Special mention: Scamp – I was going to include his old avatar because I thought it had quite unique facial expression but recently Scamp change his avatar which focuses on a girl’s antenna…so I am on the fence right now, not sure if I like it o_o
That’s it for now. There are many more great avatars out there. If you have any in your mind, please share here. Thanks!
