I'm pleased to announce that I've just uploaded over 600 avatars for our members to use around the GameBanshee website. I personally cropped every single image from a variety of RPG sources - box artwork, wallpapers, high definition trailers, etc. I also made every effort I could to provide a vast assortment of races, themes, and years (both old school and modern game avatars are included), as well as a comparative selection of both male and female avatars.
If you have yet to choose an avatar, I highly recommend visiting this page and browsing the selection to see if any of the images suit you. Keep in mind that you can still upload a custom avatar (of a recommended dimension size of 75x75), but the enormous selection now available makes it easier to just pick one and jump into the community. Enjoy!
