    Well, I'd like to get more orange and less yellow. I know there's a lot of bee images with yellow, but that blurs the line between bee and wasp:

    Did some googling, here are some images which might help for inspiration, in terms of color:

    Also, I'd like to get away from the violet-colored eyelids. I like them, but just not for this avatar.

    The wings are colored in, I see. Can we try them white and see how it looks? Remember, if there's a colored background, even if pale, the wings will still stand out if they're uncolored.

    Does the graphic program allow you to adjust the hues? I'd like to get away from bright primary colors, like a traditional cartoon, and more of an adult graphic look, with deeper and more subtle colors. Warm colors. The dolphins aqua will probably not "match" with anything, but that's ok, it's the dolphin color.

    OK. So I will dull it down. Though I will use the brighter yellow for the crown. Maybe do Miami orange or aqua for the eyelids? And white it is for the wings.

    Might work for the lids, you'll have to try some different colors, there and see how it looks. The aqua might work. If all else fails just use a neutral color.

    Ok, how's this. Pay attention to the eyelids. I have them alternating between colors. See which one you like. The colors after the light blue are the aqua and blue used in the Dolphins logo.

    The medium aqua color for sure, because it matches the shirt. I'm wondering though, how the lids would look without colored eyeshadow at all, just body color, but one shade darker to look a little smokey.

    I'm also curious to see what the picture would look like if we cut back on one of the colors. There's 6 colors in here. What would it look like if we replaced the burnt orange with black? That would be the wand, and the base of the crown (leaving the jewels, and top yellow of the crown the alone). It may look terrible, or evil, but I'm just curious.

    I'm also wondering, if it's possible to try adding gloves. I'm thinking black.

    What type gloves? To the wrist, half the forearm, to the elbow? Let me know. One thing to keep in mind though, black gloves with the black staff might be too much.

    I like both lids, but maybe I'm leaning toward the neutral colored one.

    LOVE the addition of the black instead of the burnt orange...

    I know what you mean about the gloves, I thought black on black might be too much too. But can we see? Maybe we can try aqua gloves. Might look good. There's the problem of contrasting it with the shirt, but we'd just have to make it one shade difference than the shirt.

    Forgot to answer your glove question...about half the forearm. Not too high.

    Ok. The black will not work. So pick from one of these. It starts off with light to dark aquas and then ends with the Miami blue.
    Also, your PM box is full again. I would suggest emptying your send box as well as some of the inbox.

    Believe it or not, I like the first choice. I thought I would like dark, but it doesn't work at all. It's definitely between #1 and #2. Which do you prefer, yourself?
