the concept is solid, so I'm happy enough with it.

Ninja Gaiden (You may know it as Ninja Gaiden Black) was a game of my childhood (I still own it, but my xbox died so I can't play it anymore), I liked it a lot. So I decided to put a pfp of the protagonist Ryu Hayabusa. The image is from the "remastered" version called Ninja Gaiden Sigma released for one of the playstations (I think the Playstation 3, I'm not sure)

Stupid Bunny is a name I pulled straight out of my ass on a whim while making the title cards for a Commander Keen mod back in like 2004 or so.  I've been saddled with it ever since but it was only a couple years ago on an online drawing game that I decided to finally lean into it and draw an avatar that reflected my idiotic username.  And then I repurposed the bunny here at DW when I came back after being absent for like 6 years.  If you wanna read too much into it there's also a bunny in Doom, and TNT is an IWAD that exists.  The end

I started using the SCP Cheshire Smile in 2014 when I got Steam and used it along with the other one I subsequently found for a bit, then found the second spooky grinner the following year and kept him for a very long time and he became the face I was known by during my days in the YouTube Poop scene. Then more recently in April this year, since I've still very much been operating my new video editing business under my username and figured it'd be a good idea to keep the little guy around for branding purposes, I figured it was time to have a new version of him made. After all, the 2015 one is just a random image I found one day and I don't own it. Rather than risk having the original artist come hunting me down to accuse me of stealing, I commissioned an artist I like, YixxiePie, to make her own interpreted version of him that I can own and do whatever I please with. I couldn't be happier with the result as Yix nailed the cute/creepy aesthetic I've come to enjoy. :^)

I am a big fan of yandere things [im even a bit of [and by a bit of i mean i am] a yandere!]
so i found this picture on deviant art [its Ayano Aishi from yandere simulator]

Aishi-Ayano-full-2362434.jpg

 

well i thought the one on the right would be a great pfp [honestly both of them would be great pfps] so i cropped the image out..
 

I dont change my pfps very often, unless i find one that i really like afterwards... I found my Current one on a Discord Server... i really liked it so i changed to this one

Well, as for now I use Mima the evil spirit from pc-98 era Touhou, too bad she was scrapped in later entries.

Yep! Also the inspiration for 2011's 'The Artist', starring Jean Dujardin. This particular version is from a historical music ensemble called Hesperus, which accompanied showings of the film with live music representative of Spanish/Mexican California from the 19th century. It was amazing.

I used to play EvE online way back in 2006. The game has, or had, a feature where if you held a key, I forget which, your cursor turned into this little square magnifying glass. That's the border around my avatar. The subject? It's the version of the Minmatar Scythe from before the Trinity patch overhauled the graphics.

Spoiler

Before Trinity:

Now:

Why do I use it as a forum avatar, still? Well... it looks kinda like a face, don't it? It's funny.

Mine's got a bit of a backstory. It all stems from my (by far) most played game on Steam. Team Fortress 2. TF2 is known for having a wide array of unique hats, some of which having unusual effects. One of these effects is called Flaming Lantern, and it's a jack-o-lantern that orbits around your head. So I made a pfp, based on it. For a while, this was my main avatar for most social media platforms I was on.

 

(This is the picture, be carful it's big)

After I first created my Doomworld account, I made a sort've recreation of it, but it was based off of a random image I found on google. Then I made a gif of it. But then for a while I had what I thought to be the perfect pfp. A looping gif of the pumpkin from PvZ.

Spoiler

But eventually, I got into Banjo-Kazooie. So I edited a gif of Mumbo Jumbo from the game to make him look like a pumpkin. Unlike a lot of the profile pictures I've used, I don't see myself getting bored of this one. But only time will tell I guess.

I love SA1 and its sequel, so I decided to make my avatar as any character, and a few characters came into my head, one of them is Big the cat, I found a thumbnail of a playthrough video, he looks souless and the way the camera is zoomed at his face is funny, not that funny but the avatar made me bored, I'm gonna use another one.

Must admit, that character confused me for a good while.

 

I've been living under the impression it was a zoomed-in art of Mora (no, not specifically the spoilered art of course):

Don't think mine needs any introductions, Loona is stunning, 'nuff said.
