Mine is a drawing my friend did for me. Kailana was like my alter-ego for years... Especially when I was with my ex because he did an online comic! Anyways, Kailana is the blue-haired one. I switched computers and when I was moving things around I found some old drawings so I thought I would circulate them around.

Generally I've used pictures from the Prisoner. But I think I'm going to go avatar-less for a while, or at least until I think of a cool one. I was thinking of using a picture of me. I don't know.

Mine is a picture of Queen Henrietta Maria, daughter of Henri IV of France and wife of Charles I of England. She's the namesake for the state of Maryland.

My avatar is Lady Guenevere taken from the movie "Arthur". I just thought she looked great in this picture, nothing like a medieval woman ready to kick butt! :D

Mine is Mark Smeaton from the Tudors. It was a toss up between him or Cromwell

Now that the old board came back up again, I was able to grab my old avatar from there. Much better :)
