Request Avatar Changes

Post by minhtam1638 » Wed Feb 18, 2009 10:48 pm

Don't Like an Avatar listed in the candidate's page? You can request for a change here, and someone will do that for you!

For example, if you don't like Marisa's avatar, post here, and we'll officially flag the avatar for a change! (And that's a real flag, not a psuedo-example, Qtip)

Although I'm not a big Anya fan, she looks like some sort of bizarre insect in her current avatar.
Ami's new avatar looks pretty bad too.
I'll take another look later, but I think that's all that really stood out, and after that it's just what I prefer (Ex: I think that a picture of Unison Hayate would look better than what's currently being used).

A single complaint will not automatically render an avatar flagged for change, but it will definitely get our attention in wanting to learn more about why.

The process can be sped up, too, if you have an image you want to suggest as a replacement. By default we always select the best one we're able to get our hands on, but sometimes our aesthetic views are not necessarily your own.

My opinion is Anya's new avatar > old avatar but Ami's old avatar > new avatar. The quality of source image for Ami's new avatar wasn't very high to begin with.

I think Evangeline avatar should be changed to the design from the Ala Alba OADs (they are better looking IMO). Like the one from this offical poster:

Please tell us why you don't like them, so it can help us search for a new one. ^^; Otherwise we might choose another one that we think is good .. but is still wrong-looking to you for the same reason as before.

Kallen's current avatar is not moe.

Though Kallen isn't moe, her avatar makes her even less moe.

Ahh! My bad. Should've included the reasons :oops:

Illyasviel - I noticed that Saber, Rin, and Shiki's avatars are from their original game illustrations. So I thought it would look better if Illya's avatar was also from the game illust.

Rika - I'd say personal taste... or.. Rika's head for current avatar is.. how should I say this. Mmm. Sort of different but not really. Sakura - Maybe because it's so different from the Sakura I used to see from TV long time ago.. the TV-anime-style-Sakura.

It would also be more helpful if people could also comment on others' requests for avatar changes to see whether or not it's just one person who happens to have a problem. :\

Ami's avatar will be reverted.
Kallen, Anya, Evangeline, and Sakura... why not.
Unison Hayate isn't the state where we see her most of the time.
I chose that particular Rika because it matched the picture I used for Hanyuu. ;d
Illya's Type-Moon art is pretty uninspiring compared to Rin's, Saber's, Shiki's, etc.

Sakura: I'll help you find pictures qtip if you're not satisfied with the ones above. I, like imbehindyou, also recommend calendar art, since i have all of them.

Heed the above, since qtipbrit is in charge of avatars and profile pictures. I will upload new images as they are completed and delivered to me and let everyone know here.

All Touhou Avatars, because I think they should have the same format of Avatars.
The best I recommend would be here, Alphes's illustration for the 10.5th Game.
It will also make them more charmy. Personally think Alphes's art is the best of Touhou.

Agreed, but I don't know exactly why though.

I love current Anya's, Eva's and Sakura's avatars, so do Hayate's.
Especially, Rika match with Hanyuu is perfect.
But Ilya's avatar really need change, the current one make her face so... big...

Maybe you can make pools with the current avatar and the posible new ones for the characters people request avatar changes? It doesn't seems that many look at this thread...

Omg. I had a picture of one of the Touhou girls without even knowing it!

Kallen's should be changed.

And where's a thread for the profile picture (240x300px) change? Cause that's what Anya needs changed. Not her avatar.

One that I had a problem with since the beginning was probably Patchouli's avatar. I mean, in the avatar she just looks like a really boring and plain character, and you won't realize how cute she is until you see the profile picture. And that kind of sucks because Patchy is an adorable kuudere if there ever was one.

I'm not trying to be rude at all but Patchy looks boring and plain because that's what Bookworms look like, she might be cute in fanart but as far as I can remember from last year all pictures are supposed to look "official" as possible, so that kinda rules out pictures that make girls look like what they are not.

of course if the staff doesn't care about all that anymore feel free to ignore me <_>'

Looking at the voting pictures. Minori's scares me, since she looks like she's going to go insane right after. Also, it's early, but I guess I'll post my votes, so I can go find them before I vote.

I was thinking the same thing as well ^^" I was thinking maybe something like:

might be better ^^

I didn't get that impression from Minori Avatar but I would agree with the change. The one Ichigo-Sora proposed looks better IMO.
