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

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...

That I'm a fantasy artist who puts a lot of time into art things (as my avatar took some time to animate, then again I'm qualified in that)
That I am a dirty old man. :B
