Let's be honest here. The current default newbie av is.... unfortunate. I know I'm not alone in worrying that it might give newcomers the wrong impression if they don't know that it's just a joke default av. I've already known several posters to mistakenly think it was genuine, and I've heard a secondhand story about a lurker / SA newcomer being scared off thinking that SA was super into... that guy.

ITT please brainstorm, discuss, and create/propose new default newbie av. I can't guarantee it'll get used but it's more likely to if I can offer an alternative!

Some thoughts:

It should be slightly diminuitive - it can't be too nice! Channel your inner a little. Like we want it to encourage people to buy a new av. But it doesn't have to be horribly mean or ugly either.
Who knows maybe we can strike the perfect balance between nice to look at, and still bad enough that people want to buy an av

It probably should not be animated or minimally animated

Yay! My vast library of stock photos might come in handy for something.

I like this one the most:

Also, you can't do a barnacle jim avatar with the face shrunk vertically like that one. Here's a mock up for a design much more loyal to the Source Material

There he goes. One of God's own prototypes. Some kind of high-powered mutant never even considered for mass production. Too weird to live, and too rare to die.
