Make sure your profile picture is as professional as your gig images. I see a lot of profile pics that do not scream professional in a global marketplace. Remember, people judge everything. Literally everything. 

100% Agreed

Yet I doubt Darth Smash will get many reviews. 

I have to disagree, Darth Smash sounds very cool, I mean galactically cool to me.

My hair is quite long right now (I'm gonna grow it out for another year so I can donate my monstrously thick hair to kids) and I've been using my
profile pic for over 10 years. I keep saying I'm gonna change it, I'm gonna change and I still haven't. Let's see if I can really change it before this year ends!

An artist with a self caricature or detailed illustration can convey far more about their service and individuality than through a regular headshot. Same with graphic designers, or other highly visual or "unconventional" services.

I was actually wondering about that. Would you think that my profile picture was okay, or is it too unprofessional-looking?

If I had to, I guess I could draw something more ‘professional-looking’ so people would think I’m authentic.

Your profile picture (the one you're using on Fiverr, not the forum) seems professional. Nothing wrong with it, I would say. If you want to look older you can wear some glasses. That puts a few years on your face right away, AND it makes you look smarter. I would have done it, but I'm getting to that point where I'm looking for ways to seem younger, not older - haha.

Although the generic perception of a "professional" seeming headshot (clean cut, solid neutral colors, suit jacket, button-up, tie, etc.) is suitable for many cases, I think that particular services, especially in the creative fields, have more leeway on what might be appropriate.

An artist with a self caricature or detailed illustration can convey far more about their service and individuality than through a regular headshot. Same with graphic designers, or other highly visual or "unconventional" services.

What is absolutely never appropriate is a picture stolen from the web, of a person who is not the seller, or one where the seller is blitzed out of their mind after a night of partying and is about to taste their dinner a second time around.

The sheer amount of fraudulent profile pictures might even outnumber those that are authentic but "unprofessional." A more dire issue, imo.

Lots of great suggestions
