New avatar. I wasn't paying attention and the aspect ratio on FanFiction.net for avatars changed from square to tall, 3:4 or in display 150x200, so my current/previous one looked wrong. I've been focused on writing lately, so it took me a while to get around to making this even after I noticed, though it didn't take me long to make this.

I made the image myself, but didn't create the font or the background, I'm very sad to say. I can't draw.

The background is a small portion of a piece of "Fallout 3" concept art I'm almost sure is by Adam Adamowicz (see Flickr: www.flickr.com/photos/47857688…). I don't want to take the time right now to find the original posted version of the image I used—sorry—though I may later. Specifically, I found this through the crappy Fallout wiki (fallout.wikia.com). I hoped to source to the good Fallout wiki (fallout.gamepedia.com) but I had trouble navigating concept art there. It's "CapitalWastelandCA02" (link: fallout.wikia.com/wiki/File:Ca…) on the crap wiki. I scaled their large, nice image down to 1724x2000 for this.

This is my original/full resolution, 600x800 pixels. I thought I'd just try what they recommend at FanFiction.net in the Image Manager section and if I don't like how it looks I can re-make it bigger or something. As I said above, they don't display nearly this large on that site.

See my profile, the one I made this for, at www.fanfiction.net/u/3361133/ ( . . . where I'm back to HUNK/Tofu, my original pen name there; it was Grits 'n' Gravy for years. The website's format forces me to spell the pen name "HUNKxTofu"—can't have the slash in it, which I think is ironic considering modern fanfiction's history beginning with slashfic. Anyway, videogames reference.)

Font/typeface: Caslon Antique, size 90, smooth, no other effects. I looked at several other fonts then narrowed them down to a few, and this feels best, at least for the moment. I came close to the "Dwarf Fortress" font, Narkism, Gill Sans, Adobe Jenson Pro and Gulim.

Program: Adobe Photoshop CS5 Extended (v12.0) for Mac.

WTF? I didn't disable comments. I don't know what I'm doing on this site.
