The story behind your custom avatar

Recommended Posts

You know...if you made a transparent square that matched the dimensions of the new forum's avatar dimensions and pasted your old bojack avatar on top of it, the forum would have no reason to stretch it, maintaining your desired appearance.  Give it a shot.

Yah, but didn't you read? I'm too lazy. :P

It's a cat that looks like it's cringing, which is pretty much me every morning when I wake up and remember I have to do things for the rest of the day.

I made my avatar from a Google Sketchup model by someone else.

Now I've remade it to match the new forum's preferred avatar size.

I finally used an image of the character my username is based on but it still seems to be a little too small due to the avatar size limit.

Mine is now the proper size again. 36x36 (which was the size limit way back when I first made this) looks a lot better, although that expanded version wasn't all that bad. It still didn't look natural. And it's been so long since I did anything with the avatar, I forgot that there were 32 frames that I had to convert over to 90x90.

Before the avatar updates, I thought it was just a smokey red square. Never saw the face before.

You should see it on the top right where the profile options are. It's so small, like a thumbnail of a thumbnail.

I had to make slight modifications to nidorina's left foot and left ear to make it fit within the canvas to allow the upscaling to fit within the restrictions.

I needed a new one and still need to familiarize myself with Gimp (with photoshop theme) since I have been using PhotoImpact for many years. The story behind my username however is  bit more interesting. I've had it since 2000. I needed a player name back in the day, when I was at a lan party, playing the counter strike mod and before that I was hooked on Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2. The secret character you could unlock was this guy : DREAMCAST--Tony%20Hawks%20Pro%20Skater%2

 

Since the word Dick is a bit inappropriate I shortened it (pun not intended) and have been using it ever since. :D

Heyyy, I remember playing as him on Pro Skater 3. I always had a good laugh at his special trick, the lazy ass manual when I was little. That was when I was 8 though, or somewhere around that age.

I had commissioned a Jaws In Space badge about a year ago from artist OhYouMLW that I wear to conventions & other geeky events. I just edited in a starry sky for my Doomworld avatar.

Mine is just the doomguy "I just found a new weapon and now this game is OVER" face -- appropriately chosen from the set of faces displayed when the player is at 42 percent health.

 

Actually, I did not have 42 HP when I took the screenie from which this avatar is clipped, but you can't tell from the picture.

It's Gaston LaGaffe, the supremely likable (and eponymous) protagonist of my favourite franco-belgian comic series. Drawn by the late and great André Franquin.

It's my avatar in author cameos and whatever in my never-to-be-seen cartoons and comics. Plus, it kinda reflects who I am. A big eater, pink most of the time, breathes like a vacuum, and I like guns. 'Nuff said.

"Hey Jim. How do you like my new mask?"

"It's nice, I gu-"

"See that guy over there? Watch this!"

Muffled vacuum cleaner sound...

"Ummm...shouldn't you..."

Vacuum cleaner sound continues, getting louder, yet still muffled. 'That guy over there' doesn't move and he doesn't seem to even be paying any attention.

Suddenly, the mask cracks on the back, and then breaks. Finally, it zips around and gets sucked up in his mouth, followed by a deafening roar of a sucking sound, which suddenly stops...

"Ummm...shouldn't you have taken off the mas-"

"Awww, crud. That's the third one this week."

Dorothy from VA-11 Hall-A: Cyberpunk Bartender Action. I love her facial expressions and lewd dialogue.

Mine is a detail from the 2003 album Train of Thought by progressive metal heros Dream Theater.

 

I always just rather liked the image! No real meaning behind it, other than I like the album and it seemed a funky choice for an avatar. I've used it on every forum I'm registered on for about 10 years now.

Mine is just a doomguy hud sprite that I edited, to make like he got burned by an imp or a mancubus, my last avatar was a satanic version of doomguy.
