Dont think the site allows something that large as an avatar.

Why not just put it in your signature like this?

Microsoft's official GamerCard isn't an image, so that will never work.
Browsing lets your browse your PC and upload an image that will remain static, but I think you want your avatar to be one that's always updated, hosted on another site.
(Actually the official GamerCard is hosted on another site too, not your Xbox 360.)
You should be able to use "Option 1" on this page for that.

I advise you to sign up for an account at MyGamerCard.net, or a similar service that gives you GamerCard clones that are images.
You can generate 80 x 80 px images, like mine below:

For some reason that gives me a "Invalid URL" error message though.
No idea why...

If you use the .png's like Reto suggested, from MyGamerCard.net it will update the .png with you game activity thus updating your avatar's image. Although it won't exactly fit the GamerDNA's recommended avatar size, it will scale it up or down slightly distorting it. Either way, it will work.

Did you get it to work?
I agree that it should, but gDNA gives me an "Invalid URL" message.
The site supports avatar PNG files, so I don't think that's the problem (if hosted elsewhere).

Why do you say that?

A dynamic image is basically not really an image, but a script with the file name of an image.
When your browser requests "someimage.png", the server instead runs that script, which generates an image, and instead shows that result.
Your browser never saw had access to the script, has no way of knowing this is not a static image, and neither has gamerDNA or anything/anyone else for that matter.
(As long as it's done right and nothing goes wrong with the script that is.)
So it really shouldn't matter if you try to use a regular or a dynamic image.

You could try what I did and (if you are a member of 360 voice) copy your avatar image from there and edit it

The easiest/best way to view your avatar is by visiting the official Web-based one:
http://avatar.xboxlive.com/avatar/Me...vatar-body.png
You can also see your GamerPic (Avatar version) in two sizes:
http://avatar.xboxlive.com/avatar/Me...vatarpic-l.png
http://avatar.xboxlive.com/avatar/Me...vatarpic-s.png
