I haven't posted here in forever but this time's special!
Look, LOOK AT MY AVATAR. IT'S FABULOUS. Now if you'll excuse me, I'll be slurping my udon.

EDIT: oh one thing I forgot, it's apng, so it may be the case that you are using an inferior browser and cannot see the animation... Unfortunately it's rather inconvenient to get a .gif version, so that's just too bad I guess.
Pleinair. Love her overall style, and she's one of my favorite team members in Disgaea (also love other designs her artist made.) And hey, I'm often compared to a bunny, so with her being a char that uses bunnies, we kinda go hand-in-hand.
My siggy is the same char. xD But my own quote I randomly requested.
Avatar : Kaworu Nagisa, from neon genesis evangelion. As a fan of the series, i have a special feeling for each character, but nagisa really impressed me. He was a source of happiness and a great companion to the protagonist, when he needed most. An amgel ( i mean,literally xD) for a few moments of his life. And i really appreciate his personality at all.
This is the original. What started as a complete blank slate where I had no idea what to do turned into this huge mess of glows and colour dodge filters. Gah. It's a damn pretty mess though (or at least I think so).
Maybe I'll list down some of the things that are going on in this one avatar to make myself feel better.
I didn't do any colour correction. The border is textured and uses colour dodge mode. (the texture took me way longer than it should've) I blurred the edges of the image like I typically do. There's a colour dodge overlay on top of the whole border of the avatar. Just when I thought I was done, I decided to painstakingly mask out Ranko and gave her this weird glow using some Fireworks blending mode called "Reflect".
That glow though. THAT GLOW.
I should stop putting so much effort into my avatars.
