    Someone with good art skills (cough mthrnite) needs to make me an avatar based on the holidays. I tried...

    No problem [​IMG]
    (Still not entirely happy with it, kind of a hack job, but close enough for rock-n-roll I guess..)

    I prefer the not-cleaned-up version. Not b/c ou didn't do a good job, but I just like it when it's not cleaned up. It fits his previous avatar more.

    I think it should become manditory for everyone to add a santa hat in some way to their avatars (well that is if you celebrate the commercial santa christmas).
