    That's actually pretty cool.
    I think it would look better without the grid thingy over the alien face though.

    Thanks.

    thanks man, and yeah i think i agree. maybe just a nice bevel and emboss to the alien, rather than the bar cut out.

    i was also thinking of possibly chucking some headphones on the alien, dont wanna lose simplicity though.

    As you also agree, get rid of the bars over the alien, then it will be a win avatar.

    Yea, I agree, get rid of the bars in front of the alien and it's for sure one of the best. (Besides me. Thanx Ryan)

    thats awesome man. i do agree get rid of the bars in the alien head. make the blue background like your drummer shilliout(w/e) one. where the blue is in the center then it fades to black. maybe even add a outer glow to the head too.
