What assumptions do you think strangers might make about you from your avatar?

:iconpseudolonewolf:
Pseudolonewolf Featured By Owner Jan 17, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I assume that many or most people would make subconscious judgements about a member - such as what kind of art they do, how old they are, their general attitude - from glancing at their avatar; someone with an 'awesomeface' avatar might appear very differently to someone with a painted, detailed dragon's head, or someone who chooses to represent themselves with a bouncing pair of breasts. Art is a form of communication, after all.

What kinds of things do you think people would assume about you from your avatar? Do you think it represents you well?

I picked my avatar cuz I like my cat... therefore I must be a crazy cat lady. lol

But seriously, this thread has made me consider that I should use one if my pics as an avatar instead... especially since I just decided to try and start selling prints...

Thanks :D

Despite my name, I am mistaken by a man. Even when the people goes to my page I am mistaken by a man, because of my works. Lol

It is kind of funny tho. Lol

I'm not sure if this relates to my icon, but I am often mistaken for a woman.

Of course that happens in real life too...

I assumed that you were a 13-to-15-year-old girl who likes drawing ultra-kawaii sparkly things and has a page full of stamps and lists of her friends and stuff, apparently.

They might think that I'm a pretty serious person that does popart, and that's not true haha! I am sometimes serious inded but I don't do pop-art.. I am just a total fan of drawing girls! (I also am one but I think people would guess that from my avatar and name anyways)

mmm they might think im a female

im guessing this because i commish alot of people, and when they complete my deviation and such *usually of my OC*, they will put my name and such in the description of the pic, saying that the character belong to me, however, sometimes they will refer to me as "her" or "she" in the description (ex: this is for xKESSx, she requested a picture of *insert OC*)

however, my name is kess and im a dude:thumbsup:, the woman in my avatar is one of my OCs Basuto, not me XD

I always thought people might assume that I belong to an icon family. Which is not true.
Also if you look closer, this little person is holding a Mot & Chandon bottle. I wonder what kind of an information this gives about me while the character in my icon is not me but a musician.

If someone has a person as their icon, do you directly assume that the character represents them?

when i see your avatar...i don't really think of it much
coz it's not anything with a face...it's a logo so it seems like you could be any type of person
but i guess i would think you're a guy, and you don't draw cutesy things or anime style

haha am i close? =P

what about me? what kind of person do you think am I when you see my avatar? =D

Guy - Correct
Does not draw cutesy things - Unless you count Fakemon, correct
Does not draw anime - Correct, I am self-taught

Overall score: 3/3
:iconyourewinnerplz:

You? Hm...

Based on your avatar, you look like you might be a person who reads a lot. Perhaps you write a lot as well? I don't know. The face in your avatar exudes a "sophisticated librarian" vibe.

Am I close? :?

reads a lot - wrong, I have never read any novels in my life so far XD
write a lot - wrong, my language sucks too much to write anything
"sophisticated librarian" vibe - in reality, i'm more kid-like than i am sophisticated really =D

hahaha it's pretty far off
it's interesting how first impressions can be so misleading :XD:
