Thanks for your entry! It's nice and simple, which could make for a good avatar that stands out. I think more could be done to buff up this character's pirate credentials. I see the eyepatch, but usually eye patches have a band attached to them that wraps around the head. Maybe making the hat more of a pirate hat would work as well, or adding a bandana. I think adding a special facial expression would also be good--something intimidating (pirate) or secretive (spy) would fit the character. Thanks again & good luck!
