    Is it fan art? Perhaps something from a game? Anime? I can't seem to find out. Does anyone have any insight as to what my avatar pertains to? :D I've tried TinEye, but all I'm getting is reuploads.

    Probably should post this under the Art sub forum, but please move if needed.

    I think it's a picture someone drew- I don't think it has any relationship to anime or fanart.

    If you look at drawings of Sakura that somewhat match that art style, there is a similarity that's hard to ignore. I didn't feel it was close enough to bring up though.

    Looks like one of Takehito Harada's works. Could be a concept sketch or random illustration of his. Looks an awful lot like his Pleinair from Disgaea, minus bow, plus fur on the ears.

    This avatar pic I have shows that I like Windows operating systems. Also on my YouTube channel there are most PC videos with Windows OSs from 1990s.
    ou can check them out if you want to on "PC videos" playlists.

    Why would you set it as your avatar if you don't know the source?

    I never even noticed until I just now got Pleinair.

    I believe he assumed that this is the "Show your avatar and say something about it" thread, AKA, hasn't read the OP.
