IMHO, the best place to go avatar-fishing is here:
http://www.google.com/imghp?hl=en&tab=wi&q=

Google image search rocks. If you are good with some searching, you can usually turn up anything you want. If you need it sized down and don't know how, send me a PM and I'll take care of it. I love Photoshop and use it regularly.

My current avatar is me earlier this month going after some duck.

ok i dont mean to sound pushy but its cool that avatars can be 150x150 pixels in size cuz thats the best size if u ask me but the file size can only be 9 KB? it should be at least 20 KB
Do them in 8-bit color (256 color) rather than 16-bit (true color) and the files will be plenty small.... and on-screen, you'll never know the difference.

You must remember your dial-up friends. Some people are still creeping in at speeds under 56k. In a thread with 15 posts on a page, you're looking at a lot of loading just for avatars. :wink: Think of it as a challenge of skill to keep them at 9kb and still do what you want.

Just a sec, I'll upload one for you. Copy them to your computer and then upload them (they will not stay hosted by me).

Alright, scored on the google image search... total time: less than a minute. Really people, try there first, it's almost too easy.
