Anyone know of one? I'm talking about the doll images people put in their sigs on forums that allow that sort of thing, not physical dolls. I'm actually looking for images for my NaNoWriMo character, but since she happens to look kind of hippie-ish and has a nursing toddler, a crunchy site is probably what I need! Most of the ones I've seen have all these cutesy fashionable teenager images, and I want earth-mama imagery instead. Any links for me?

Only ones I've every seen were the cutesie teen ones, I've got a few slinging, pregnant or bfing somewhere.

or they're "hand drawn" and aren't nearly as nice looking.

That doesn't look anything like me - it's my novel character. Also my own kid is a boy. Although I made both characters the same age as us - sneaky me. I intend on putting some toddler antics into my novel.
