Mine is 27. https://www.flickr.com/photos/gospeed_racer/17300244826


Mine is the same age I'm at in RL now. Quite good going seeing as it was taken 4 years ago so at the time, my avatar was actually older than I was :)

That seems about right to me, since she has a sort of "catalog model" look and they are often in the 25- 30 age range.

Using a picture with a Pink Fuel skin (which makes me look a bit younger)



I get 24 with those.

With this one it says 23, same pink fuel skin different lighting: https://www.flickr.com/photos/cronocloudcreeggan/15722755073/

With this one I'm "Trying" to look high school aged (for a Strawberry Singh meme), its the Pink Fuel skin again, it says 24:


I figured as much.

Lighting seems to affect it quite a bit; I get results varying from 18 to 30.
