I figure since we have these brand new boards marking a new beginning, I'd put on the oldest clothes I have...

For those not in the know, this is the first av I ever wore. I got it about a week after I joined. I had no idea how to do anything back then, so I had to ask our ol' buddy Dirk to make it for me.

But Axel, I loved the flat cartoony look of original santa hat! It contrasted so nicely with the photo. Go back, go back!

Better?

(I think I did a better job of it this time, actually)

I've had two--no, three avatars. First was a "rip" looking thing (as in universal rip), which was quickly supplanted by a self-made picture featuring Bun-bun (w/switchblade) in a hand with dust swirling around it. That one was a representation of one of my favorite lines from one of my favorite poems: "I will show you fear in a handful of dust." From T.S. Elliot's The Waste Lands.

My third avatar, not counting the ugly-ass "X" that was there for about a freaking year, is the one you see before you. That's Malice, my first and most evil character and personifiction of my evil side, fighting Reth, my third and most good character and personification of my good side.
It was drawn for me several months ago by Ruan for a contest, but I wasn't able to display it--computer problems, I thought. Then I tried it, on a whim, for these new boards, and it worked! It's very cool.
Although Reth's hair should be blonde--not just because it is on the character, but because the picture would look better with the contrast. Oh well. Still looks cool.

Yeah, using a picture of oneself is pretty boring isn't it?

I imagine I'll change avatars on whim, but a great deal of them will be modified from pictures of Zoe, since I am probably most like her out of all the Sluggy characters. (Personality-wise, you understand.) Lord Blanc says the expression on the picture I'm using now is one I have given him many times. Add Bun-Bun's Holiday Wars hat, slightly enlarged, and you now have Christmas Lady Blanc.

I actually switched back to this a few days ago, but the TOAST thread wasn't up then.

Since I've been silent for so long, and the avatar I had was one I believe I only used in one post, in the TOAST thread of the time, I figured I switch back to something people would recognise. It was a choice between this one and Oasis' crotch, and I decided to go with the one that would be quicker to remake, since the originals were both on my old, dead, computer.

This one's writing isn't as close to my actual handwriting as the last, sadly, since I've lost my tablet pen and had to write with my mouse.

For some reason Person's avatar reminds me of the book Kushiel's Dart...

Heh.

Hey Ruan what is your avatar supposed to be?
It will probably be something really obvious and I was compleatly oblivious and overlooked it right? :torg:

Mine's of my Cat, Macavity. I wanted a christmasy avatar, but I don't have the time or the scanner.
(prefer to hand draw my avatars first and colorize them afterwards)
Maybe I'll change in a while.
