    I mean aren't we breaking some copyright rules making avatars and using them?

    I think they come under 'fair use'.

    We're not selling them, using them to promote our own businesses or mass-distributing them. Bascially, they end up as 'free advertising' for the company behind whatever image is being used.

    On that note... mine has no copyright. :)

    Clearly I'm no fan of them either, as I compared them to you.

    Let's all agree that rape isn't funny and end this ill fated conversation at once:up:

    In Fact, I'll go as far as saing that Morg is probably not a rapist, and most likely just creepy:up:

    Just for you, Morg.

    Morg's not a rapist, it's never the creepy ones, it's always the ones you least expect.









    ...or is that molesters. I'm sorry, I was thinking of molesters.

    I've seen them before too, so maybe you drew them with some sort of generator?

    I used a generator for the base (I suck at drawing the human body), but the hair/clothing/etc. I customized in Photoshop.

    Where have you seen it? I have several versions of it with different hairstyles (not all have Daisy in them) and have used them elsewhere.

    Those are like the barbie dolls of the internet. They come in like hundreds of different outfits and looks and are commonly posted by bloggers.
