OK. Call me anal but all the gradient silhouettes are driving me nuts. So I decided to make a full set avatar from the Elemental resources we currently have. Please note that Luckmann has added many more avatars to the collection.You can get them below.

 

NOTE:  most of these were created/cropped/edited by folks other than myself, so please give credit where credit is due

Additional Note:  There are many more avatars scattered throughout the forum.  I just posted the majority of them here.  I have tried to include suggested pages to find more avatars by the various avatars if you want to look further.  You can also use the "view edits" button if you're very very brave to view all previous versions of this main thread and the images where-in. 

OFFICIAL ART AVATARS:
(made from the official art of Elemental)

These were formatted by  (me):

    

 

 

The following were formatted by Luckmann: (To provide karma; you can find his posts throughout the forum, especially on page 2 and 3)
                             

(Elemental sub-sets:  still by Luckmann)

Elemental Crystal Shards:
   

Elemental Symbols:
    

More art variants of 'official art' by Luckmann link: HERE

 

 

The following were formatted by landisaurus:  (to provide karma; go pretty much to any page after page 2.)

He has also volunteered to make custom edited avatars for people who ask in exchange for karma. just PM him.

                                                              

 

(these are kinda odd-ball ones created by Landisaurus using official art.)

       
More are scattered throughout the forums.  Pages 4-7 in particular.  They feature things like 'bear cavalry units' art and 'flying shark units'  and other in-forum jokes.

 

 

 

The following were formatted by Wintersong:  (to provide karma; Wintersong's submissions are mostly on page 8+.  Page 8 to spot the first main batch)

                 

 

*Coming soon*

This OP is under construction.  Due to some browsing issues it is being completely reformatted and built from scratch.  There are other user avatars and lots of additional avatars that are supposed to be here in the OP.  Jalicos (page: 15) and eplekogen (page: 5) come to mind right away.  They should have avatars in this OP soon.  Of course wintersong has tons of avatars scattered throughout the web.  its a work in progress tracking them down and sorting into 'official art' and 'unofficial art' especially since some of the old 'official' art did not match the current style as well as others.

We are busy people though, and editing this takes more time than one might think.  

Unofficial art Avatars:  (also coming soon... there are tons in the "view edits" below that should be resurrected up here soon)
(these were not made with Elemental Art, but were inspired by Elemental: War of Magic and/or similar works)

Yeah, I'm suprised by how well some of the Fallen and the Dragons in particular turned out. Especially the "Human Footman"-Fallen, the "Brass Flare"-Fallen and the more brightly colored dragons (White, Blue, Green, Yellow), with the sooty wings & back. It almost gives the yellow dragon a golden look.

I'd like to make some avatars for this, got a lot of experience with photoshop. I'll post them here as soon as I have time to do something, and Spartan can decide if he want's to put them in the main post

Cool. The more the merrier! That is the point of the thread after all. The real questions is if SD will put them in the download section on the official site.

Anyone making banners yet? I don't "need" an avatar, but I wouldn't mind throwing a banner on some forum accounts I have.

There is a thread for it and only two people have submitted something so far. I will make some after I see what assets Frogboy or his proxy is planning on sending me. I do not claim to be an artist however. In fact I claim zero artistic skill - please keep that in mind.

Perfect. Works for me. Gracias!

Hmm, I did a search (before my previous post) and nothing came up. I'll just do a manual lookthrough. *sigh* These forums are so broken. I have to do things myself. Sheesh. [/sarcasm]

Thanks for the heads up.

The search function is broken. It's been broken since forever.
Just a heads up - don't waste your time on it.

It's also the reason I don't go around biting the head of people for posting in the wrong threads.

 

And here's a new Footman, for all paladin junkies:

 

(that took a lot longer than one might expect)

 

Edit:
I couldn't help myself. I know it's not entirely based on Elemental artwork, but I saw the image, got an idea, and some cutting, some pasting and some coloring later..

Aaaaaaaand a whole new bunch of avatars, taken from the recent addition Frogboy made HERE.

 

     

     

     

     

     

     

 

Mostly a matter of resizing, but I had to add the ring manually around each. Enjoy, all.



Also, karma is nice.

Now I'm a newbie with a sub-million Stardock member number...

I see the image swap on My Account pages, but when I tried a couple of posts, I still see the Gangster Psilon I've been using since I started posting regularly at GC2.

Am I doing anything wrong other than being impatient?

THread updated. Thanks for thw work Luckmann - karma given  You should double check things. I think one or two are missing.

Quoting GW Swicord,

You are showing fine by me with your hand avatar. You do need to refresh your cache however.

Double-checked, none are missing. I didn't do the avatars of the medallions you resized the first time around, of course.

At first, I saw your old gangster, but I checked your profile and the hand showed, went back to the thread, reloaded it, and bam, now I see your hand everywhere.

So just reload, or clean your cache if that doesn't help.

Why do we need to empty our cache each time? It's really confusing. Allother boards I know don't need that. If you change your avatar then you immediatly see the new one ....

No idea. When I update my own avatar (and as the perceptive ones of you have seen, it can take some time for me to settle on a single avatar) it immediatly updates.

There's probably a variety of combinations and contributing factors. It's a rather common "problem", when it comes to avatars. It's possible (probable) that when you upload an avatar, it saves under a distinct name, filed under (for example) "vieuxchat"; when the browser then loads up the page, it doesn't differentiate between the old picture and the new one (since both have the same name (and place, to boot).

Manually reloading should fix it with most browsers, but others may have to empty their cache (or just wait until that image "falls out" and reloads). I'm just brainstorming here, by the way. I have no idea how they use avatars on this forum.

Thanks, lads. Cache dump was what I needed, and the Hand doesn't look that odd over at GC2.

Thanks PLUS karma is real love brothers & sisters!

[stands behind the pulpit]

Brother Luckmann is in need of some good ol' lovin' brothers and sisters! He is feeling cold and lonely and needs to be brought closer to the fire to warm his spirit and more importantly his hands which do the divine work we have all come to appreciate! So brothers and sisters take action and show your love and remember it is tax deductible! Can I get an AMEN & Some karma for Brother Luckmann! AMEN...

Alright, as promised!  (ok, so according to my clock its 5  min late, but *SHUSH*  I mad made an error and thought the 27th was friday, but then "rushed" home from my thanksgiving feast when I found out I was wrong )

Here it is, BEAR CAVALRY!

BEAR CALVARY

And, MORE BEAR CAVALRY

MORE BEAR CAVALRY

 

And here are a few cheap alternates

dark bear   Black bears are awesome 

 

And lastly, because I was watching Batman: Sub zero while making this

POLAR BEAR CAVALRY!

Polarbears!

 

Note: I only got permission to use the bear in the knight picture.  I have no idea who made the bear used in the polar bear cavalry picture (and others like it).  The one in the knight photo was created by Hillary (art site: hibbary.deviantart.com) who is a really awesome artist and anybody looking for a talanted artist should offer money so she can make art for you.

 

*** EDIT:   I'm adding two more.  I believe it was Luckmann who said "bears live in caves"  and he was certainly correct.   So many times in MoM did I run into those monster caves full of war bears.   As such, I'm adding it to the community avatar stockpile.   This is a monster lair with war bear inside from the game that EWoM is the spiritual sequal

look at those bears

 

And then my rendition of the EWoM version of the same scene

evil evil bears
