Something will happen sooooooon!

Morgengrauen (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 7/27/2009 01:28

Stickman (Level 7 Sheriff) @ 5/6/2009 15:27

Brilliant idea! :)

(Man.... why the hell didn't I think of something like that )

Morgengrauen (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 5/6/2009 14:16

a tree a tree! yay!
first i thought something horrible happened to the plant, but now it think it could develop into a big, mighty tree :3


Doppleganger (Level 6 Yonkyu) @ 5/5/2009 17:38

p.s. this is your notification that I responded.

Doppleganger (Level 6 Yonkyu) @ 5/5/2009 17:37


If you do decide to do it, let me know. I'd be quite interested to see the results.

Riva (Level 6 Commander) @ 5/5/2009 09:20

No way. The image is very nice, but the idea with avatar changing with seasons - marvelous !
I might try something like this aswell.

Morgengrauen (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 4/12/2009 05:35

the fall is gone, there were no winter for the little pot, but now it is already spring!

i still love the Bonsai and the idea ^^

Doppleganger (Level 6 Yonkyu) @ 10/10/2008 07:41
You're very welcome! Thanks for sticking with it, even when the updates are far and few between. :p

Morgengrauen (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 10/10/2008 05:32

I love ur idea :3

skeddles (Level 11 Psychopath) @ 12/16/2007 10:17
Wow, I loooooove the colors in this.

surt (Level 11 Godfather) @ 12/14/2007 14:51
What you could do if you want to show all previous versions is keep the current version for the small file/thumb, and have all previous versions displayed in the detail file in a grid.

Morgengrauen (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 12/14/2007 01:19
oh, how sweet! ^^ thank you a lot for this mornings surprise!

Morgengrauen (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 12/13/2007 11:36
yay! ^^ ;-)              

Doppleganger (Level 6 Yonkyu) @ 12/13/2007 07:53
Yes. Sorry it's been a while hasn't it? I've been really busy lately but, I promise an update soon.
It is your support and caring that will keep this plant alive. :)

Morgengrauen (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 12/13/2007 03:32
will it evolve more?

iLKke (Level 9 Nidan) @ 7/19/2007 10:07
It's a deal! :D                        

Doppleganger (Level 6 Yonkyu) @ 7/19/2007 08:12
I understand what you're saying, the whole point of this particular piece is to constantly evolve into something different. I suppose it's a bit unorthodox though.

I will put up a link to a gallery that houses all of the iterations of this particular avatar for those who missed them or would like to revisit them. How's that?

iLKke (Level 9 Nidan) @ 7/19/2007 01:59
Well if you take a look at my gallery you'll find out that you don't have to 'overwrite' an avatar when you want to join a fad :D Frankly I don't wanna see stuff being removed from your gallery.
Let monkeys and plants live side by side in piece, love and understanding!

Doppleganger (Level 6 Yonkyu) @ 7/18/2007 13:54
Oh it still exists. I haphazardly joined a fad is all. It's probably about time the monkey gets off the plant anyways. XD

iLKke (Level 9 Nidan) @ 7/18/2007 09:21
Erm, what happened to the old avatar? You replaced it with a monkey version?

Tremulant (Level 1 Gangster) @ 4/12/2007 09:57
Nicely simplistic, very pretty and charming. Love the colours, but I always love your colours so no news there. The frame is very nice, too, and the idea is great.

iLKke (Level 9 Nidan) @ 4/4/2007 03:08
One of the more lovely avatars around here.

Jason_c_o (Level 1 Depressed) @ 3/9/2007 13:32
Haha that's awesome. Sweet idea!

jalonso (Level 11 Godfather) @ 3/9/2007 04:15
You are so creative.                       

Liman (Level 3 Chief) @ 3/8/2007 18:22
You've got me interested.... avatar!

Christopher (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 3/8/2007 18:19
Good idea, yet so simple.
