I'm at a point now, where I'm considering making several to make a exclusive SMF avatar set. One default, where you can't tell the gender(no face). Then do a few males/females in various clothing. Like a t-shirt, suit, tux, etc. I'm just worried I'll spend all this time on it and no one will want it.

I've already did the suit, and tux. However, facial features on all of them(except default) are going to be a challenge for me an will require some time.

Realistically, the images I think we'd need to be adding are a generic genderless avatar (for those who don't specify a gender) and a generic male/generic female avatar which get pulled when there's no avatar set otherwise.

That said, having a full avatar set selectable as a gallery option could be neat.

I'm liking the direction you're going in :)
To assume is to hope that those who came before had the presence of mind and capacity to implement the dreams of those who would come after.

You either die a hero or live long enough to see yourself become the villain. It seems you have chosen which, and now I must do the same.

There are a few problems of course. I didn't realize it until an hour ago. Ethic background could be an issue for some. So I've created a caucasian, tan, and black bodies. You can see a screenie HERE. The problem is what color should the default avatar be? Not only does it seem that an avatar should be genderless, but also ethic-less? I'm open to suggestions.

At the moment, I'm thinking the default avatar should be SMF blue(skin tone)?

Hmm, ethnic colouring could indeed be a problem, and they usually go for silhouettes - but even that is, of course, a problem.

I don't know what to do for the best though :/

Bah, what as I thinking? I'll just do greyscale for the default. I'll need to test it against SMF backgrounds to make sure it's not too light or dark.

Make them purple. You can't claim racism if they're purple :P

Yeah but others will complain that it's an inappropriate colour >_<

That's why I said it ;) Related, we had a conversation on here the other day about including other genders and we concluded that we couldn't add other genders without causing problems. :(

Here is what I came up with for the default avatar. Pretty much final unless there are any objections. I tried the best I could to make it where you can't tell if it's male or female, and it's greyscale. I'll try to submit this tomorrow on Github if I can figure out how. What should I name the file?

Screenshot

I'll try to finish up the colored male & female icons by next week. I can do the clothes in a day, but facial items will take alot of tweaking and experimentation to get it right.

I like it a lot, too.   If you make it any better, members will want to keep that one and not select one of their own to replace it.

It really is excellent. 8)
