Well, I'm about as dark as you can get, but I don't think that's what you meant.  :D

I love Danielle's picture.

I want to put in a vote for Danielle's shot, too.  It has a coquettishness that might fit what you're looking for (not saying anything about Danielle, mind you, just the picture...).

I nominate Emmy.  That's her in my avatar pic.  She writes - I hear my keyboard going at all hours of the night, and I have come across several short stories about cats saving their humans from evil mice, heroic cats facing down maniacal dogs, etc.  And even though her pic doesn't portray her as sinister, I assure you, that's a ruse.  She's actually trying to lure you into a false state of complacency with that oh-so-relaxed pose.

I think I'm gonna go with Danielle's pic (If that's alright with her), but I think I've got a spot for Vianka and Sybil as well.   

Hmmm.. for that matter, I might throw in one or two more of you..

I think McAfee looks sinister and seductive...no?
Yeah, but he's a little on the masculine side....

What about McAfee in a wig?  ;)

Fun! It's too bad many of the authors don't use their real images, only avatars.   :D

What are you talking about?  I posed for three hours for that portrait!  :o

Did you have to keep the sword raised the whole time, or did you prop your elbow somewhere out of frame?

THREE HOURS?  Man, your guy was good.  I had to sit in that sideways bear look for four sittings, three hours EACH.  And the guy was only using caricature techniques.  In real life, I'm a slimmer bear and my ears are more pointed.

Oh yeah... the more I look at you, the more I could see your face as the model.

I think I'm starting to scare myself!

Yes ;)

I have to explain this: you have a face that is pretty, and yet at the same time has the potential of being very wicked. Your eyebrow, believe it or not, has a lot to do with this.  In the picture you have for your avatar, you have a "light" look.  If you were to keep that same look on your mouth, but lower your chin and eyebrow slightly, you'd have the "dark, sinister, seductive" smile that I'm looking for.  Your face can shift from innocent to not so innocent with just a little alteration.

Does that make sense?
