Hey guys. It's the thread that seems to find a way to weasel it's way into every community. biggrin This can be the place where you can talk about your avatar, maybe explain it a bit, or just say which avatar you think is the best. I think av11d's avatar is the best, got such a Bondish look to it cool

Alright, let's play that game Cyph plays on the scope forums. Find the connection between My Avatar ---> Me. Well , it'd be almost impossible for any of you to guess, so I'll just tell you. My avatar is a picture of Flip Wilson. Flip Wilson was a really popular guy. When he died, a skate team was created named "Flip". I'm a skateboarder (hence the 'transworld skateboarding' sweatshirt in crash landing) and I really like the logo of the team Flip. So i was searching the internet one day and found it. It said something about Flip Wilson, and it wasn't a skateboarding site. I was confused. Later that day, someone on the IGN.com forums asked if I was Flip Wilson. I typed the name in, and got the Flip logo , along with this funky picture of him. I saved it, and it's been my avatar ever since. cool

Yeah, id probably go with av11ds for most stylish. I also like the ones people have done with themselves and funky backgrounds (the twisted studios guys spring to mind). And Animaster's always makes me laugh.

Mine used to be the one cypher is using at the mo. I found this new one whilst browsing for cool caution symbols to use for the alamdv dvd case cover.

I'll prolly change mine every so often for a bit of variety

My personal favorite has to be the kid head icon tho smile We've known Kid for years and its become a bit of a cult icon, poping up in some very strange places. I should make a site dedicated to it one day

I made mine as a knee jerk reaction to have an avatar quick and now. It wont be what I will always use (I dont want to be typecast as a skullmask my whole life).
I would love a version of the VENGER character from Dungeons and Dragons cartoon. In the meantime. Cypher's is funny.

Mine is rather silly and done on a whim. I was orginally gonna do some stylee artsy B&W photo of my ugly mug. But that struck me as not so congruent with my nick/handle on the fourm. So I took a avatar from TFN of Han Solo in stromtrooper get up and pasted a candid photo of me head over his. IF you cant tell I am doing my "sling Blade" impression. Since I live in Alabama and I like star wars... DAMN this is taking to long... tard After all who really cares about my avatar besides me? What it gets down to is that I am a silly person and it was a great characterature(SP?) of my personality and interests. OR then again maybe that is me... a silly characterature of someone else confused Do-Do-Do-Dooo

Oh, yeah BTW I like av11d's alot, of course MEcha and Sidewinder's Rock too. cool

Well, my little avatar is just a picture of me that I've recoloured in photoshop, in an attempt to make myself look more interesting. smile

There is a mildly related history, I suppose, in that I once went to a fancy dress party entirely made up as The Joker from the first Batman film, and it was a damned good costume.

But hey.

Never rub another man's rhubarb.


Oh, and of everybody else's, I guess TMM's is my favourite. It reminds me of the Lizard or the Hobgoblin from the Todd McFarlane era of the Spider-Man comic.

I like Averagejoe's the best, probably. When I look at that icon, it makes me feel like i'm not the only stupid person in the world biggrin

I think sidewinder and mecha had the best idea. Its cool, since you can tell they work together and stuff.

Mine is actually not hard to figure out. I do Lego animation. That's where I get the name BrickMovies4U. Anyway, I used to use this for an icon, http://brickshelf.com/gallery/SeanCollins123/Pictures/icon_1.jpg and then I switched to this, http://brickshelf.com/gallery/SeanCollins123/Pictures/icon.jpg. Then, when I was on the forums at Brickfilms.com, a guy called "Titan Pictures" said he would make a logo for my website. I said I wanted a Lego minifig holding a lightsaber. He made one for me and now I use that as an avatar. Here's an enlarged version... http://brickshelf.com/gallery/SeanCollins123/Pictures/logo.jpg

If i could give you a +2 funny, Haiku, I'd do it. lol

In light of these recent happenings, I have put up a new avatar.

See? It's me in a movie I made for english. I'll upload it to the site soon. It features a cool opening with tons of tracer bullets on the screen, and then napalm is dropped.

'tis cool.
I'm glad people like the Twisted Studios background idea. It's cool that people caught the idea we were going for. Maybe csb-digital employees should do something like that... wink

It's like one of those scratch and sniffs. Haiku scratches his butt, then you sniff his finger. razz

Hopefully, I can send the movie to Cypher tomorrow, and then have him upload it to his site and submit it to csb.
