Wink Are all of your avatars "human-shaped"?

Not all my avatars are human-shaped...far from it! I have a lot of non-humanshaped avatars:

Alien
Shapeshifter (transforms into many animals and other objects)
Dog
Pikachu and some other Pokemon
Parrot
Cat

Nope, unless you put the human in a blender first, or in a volcano, or toss them with a catapult across north dakota.

(Even my human ones are just barely human shaped. Just.)

I used to have a centaur character, long ago, years ago. The last time I logged him on, updates had broken his avatar

All my avatars are "human-shaped", and I even spent a lot of time to give them realistic proportions.

I have several human avatars and one non human avatar.

The non human avatar has been, a Servbot fromega man, a Dolphin, a giant spider robot mech, one of those adorable little cat avatars (dinkies maybe?), For a while it was a literal BBQ Grill, with the title "I'm a grill" like the meme, and its currently back to adorable cat.

I think y'all misread the thread title. The use of the winkie with that question clearly means the OP is asking what sort of bits y'all use and is asking for dick pics.

Oh.

I can't help then, I don't have that kind of bit.

Except possibly some old freebies stowed away in some hidden corner of my inventory.

The last years I only have been human like in SL.

But in the early years I've walked the imaginary world as a fox, a dinosaur, a tiny lion, a tiny dragon, Prince Charles a parrot and what not. I liked the parrot best.

I guess I had a different concept of human-shaped. I consider most furries human-shaped.

If by "human shaped" you mean bipedal upright stance, two arms and optionally wings then at the moment yes, although I've messed with other shapes in the past. For backstory purposes, though, all the others are just holofields projected by the borg

I would concur. Most of my avatars are anthropomorphic (though none is actually human), but a lot of them are just plain old animals, from spiders to ferrets, drones to bears, bunnies to giant robots.

Distinctly Elf-shaped, . Often with digitigrade legs, claw/talons on feet, and a marching tail.

Wait, how do I get that option? Drastic cosmetic surgery, right?

Wait... Are you trying to say the 9' tall creatures with 2:1 leg:torso ratio are being mistaken for humans? (O.o)
