Images & Avatars
Here on MM, we are very open to the type of avatar/image you use for your character. Here are some guidelines and suggestions:
  • The use of actors, musicians, or models is fine, as long as the photos you use were taken professionally on a film set, photoshoot, or licensed under a talent/modelling agency. In other words, no candids.
  • We know it's not always easy to find the face you want in appropriate costume, so just make sure their appearance isn't drastically anachronistic.
  • You can also just use a symbol or other image if you'd prefer your character's appearance to remain textual only.
  • You are welcome to use art instead of a photo. Just bear in mind that anything taken from places such as deviantArt or other amateur/independent artists will be removed. The only exception to this is if you have proof that the art was specifically commissioned for your personal use.
  • If the art you chose is of a face, we ask that it be at least semi-realistic, and gently discourage stylized stuff like anime or cartoons.
