Cool avatars to express yourself

Everyone eventually needs an avatar for somewhere they go to on the net–most frequently it’s for a gamesite, forum or somewhere like myspace. A lot of places offer their own avatars to pick from which is easy, but they are usually generic and you always run into someone else who is using that particular avatar on that site. Of course you want to be different (don’t you?!). Here are some sites that offer hundreds of avatars so you can choose something better than those generic ones. Find one, save it to your computer by right-clicking and choosing save or save as. If the site you are needing it for lets you browse for your avatar, you need only remember where you put it on your computer. If the site is asking for an url-make sure to save it somewhere on the web (image host site such as flickr, photobucket or my favorite right now thumbq) and then pick the appropriate url provided by that service. Bingo – a cool avatar to differentiate you from all them other lamers who just picked the easy generic way. Click one of the pics below.
