Tell Me About Your Current Forum Avatar

Postby Maniah » Thu Jun 11, 2015 4:03 pm

I want to know more about your forum avatar.

What is it?
Why did you choose it?
How long have you had it?
If it's brand new, how long do you think you will keep it?
Anything else you wanna tell me about your avatar?

Mine is a custom My Little Pony that I made one year as a reward for someone's My Little Pony game. Her name is Peggles and she is a Pirate pony. I chose her because it was relevant to my interests and I was proud of her. I've had her for a few years now and I have just been too lazy and too inactive to change her to someone else.
I was here, but now I'm gone.
I left this note to turn you on.
Those who loved me, loved me well.
Those who don't can go to hell.

It's a t-shirt I bought years ago, wore until it was threadbare, and have since kept in storage.

Mine is a drawing of a Kroxigor from Blood Bowl I did a few years ago. I use it because I like having something I drew, and it's probably one of my favorite things I've drawn still.

Will probably change it when I actually get decent at drawing and draw something better.

My avatar is a Noble Bear original and I've had it for quite a while. I originally had Dr Evil as my avatar, but Bear did me a version that played up both my Britishness and the Foul/Fowl pun. What he came up with was just so perfect I've kept it ever since... and the legend was born.

:D

I'm a big fan of the Lyran Commonwealth in Battletech, and I'm Minion. So I mashed the two together.

My current avatar is a departure from my usual self portrait. This was from a promotional photo taken last year when I played Profesor Moriarty in a local production of "Sherlock Holmes: The Final Adventure". I antiqued it up when I started my PbP of the Venture Society.

Mine is Sailor Venus (in non-Sailor mode) making a sly comment. I've used it since 2000 with no plans to stop. I used to love Sailor Moon and on forums where I can change my title, I pair it with, "You know you watched it."

At one brief point in time, shopping a particular squirrel picture into various super-characters was a meme. I stumbled onto these pictures, and the course of my avatars for the next year and change was set. I decided to start with The (movie) Avengers, and I'm currently on Natasha Romanova, the last one.

Mine is from a Payday 2 fan comic and features the character Wolf frozen in paralyzing thought and worry as he tries to reconcile if an object whose name is described by its function (i.e. a drill) continues to bear that name if it cannot perform that function. Chains' question demands an answer.

"How can it be a drill if it ain't drilling?"

It's me from a few years ago via web cam. No, it's not a passport photo. :-)
