I'd like to start off by saying that one of my favorite features that Whyville has to offer is Pick Your Nose, because there are so many different looks that you can create to make your own unique avatar. In the picture below, you can see a few of the looks that I've created in the past with themes like Space, Devil, Haunted Mansion, Halloween and my most favorite of all the avatars that I've put together over time, Underwater.
The time that I put together the Underwater avatar was a rough one, as I was going through many changes in my life that weighed me down and I sunk even deeper into depression, not accepting the help that I needed. I feel that this avatar represents those heavy feelings that I had at the time, so it serves as a reminder to me. A reminder that I've lived through one of the darkest times of my life and that I'm still here to talk about it.
I gradually fell in love with this avatar, so I just had to put in on paper as the way it appears to me in my mind, so I hope you like both the version on Whyville and the other as the way I see it.
Whether you're a professional or even a beginner, I would absolutely love to see others on Whyville submit a sketch/painting of their own avatars. I hope that you've enjoyed this article and thank you for seeing it all the way through! Always remember, "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder."
