How or why did you pick your avatar (now with request)

Postby Ed. » 30 May 2010, 03:54

I'm curious as this forum lacks the normal spread of adverts and objectification for the most part.

also secret I need an avatar topic and need ideas

My gf drew this, and I happen to enjoy her style.

Mine's a pic I drew of myself, with the simple addition of all-blue eyes, which I quite like so I set it as my avatar. ;)

My avatar is a cartoony self portrait I drew when I was learning to draw.

On other forums I use Konata from lucky star, mostly because I havnt gotten round to replacing her with this one.
It doesnt help does it?

I'm sorry, are you somehow implying that you are more awesome than Konata?

It's simple, clean, a somewhat obscure reference, and looks nothing like me; what more could I want? I was inspired after something during Desert Bus got me to watch the entire ReBoot archive.

Self portrait drawn by a friend of mine on the internet from a picture of me I had sent her.
Previous to that it was the Canadian hobo from a webcomic I read that several people told me (at the time) sort of looked like me (before my hair went wild).

I also use the logo of the Sheep Poo Paper company, because what is more awesome than paper made from animal poo?

I saw this somewhere else. Can't remember where. It was pretty much the only 300 parody I liked so I claimed it.

Just a photo of myself that I like. The previous avatar was drawn by Kathleen and is still used elsewhere.

I would never suggest something like that, I just felt myself was probably a better symbol of who I am than Konata, I can only dream to be one day as awesome as konata.


I just noticed my avatars eyes accidentally look at my post, but the face is clearly hesitant.. A completely unintentional accident which sums up everything I ever post..

Mine's from back when I was active on the xkcd forum. At some point one of the strips caused me to become obsessed with Zeppelins, so I mocked up a quick one and have being using it as my avatar since then. More recently I "upgraded" it with one that took slightly more than 5 minutes of work, and is now heavily armed, which is what you see to your left.

Well, If you want to get Historical, First I had the falling man from the cover of MYST, then this (The Stranger's Hand): Image and then I went for the Brain, which was first this: Image then I upgradded (with 2 Ds for a double dose of my pimping abilities)

I am a Runner. I am a (mid)West Coast Mother Lovin' G. If you don't know what either of those are you need to watch more of Loading Ready Run's CommodoreHUSTLE. I also like subtle animations.

My avatar may change soon so for archival purposes the one in question is below.
