  1. I have seen a couple of avatars around the forum and all are unique

    for example someone has shaggy and someone has hitman poster ect

    and i started to wonder why does this person have that or this...

    anyways the question is What is the meaning behind your avatar?


    My avatar: V for Vendetta

    • I really liked the V for vendetta movie
    • i have a thing about masks
    • also i made it in Illustrator a long time ego and it brings me a couple of good memories too
    • It might seem simple but it took me a good amount of time

    your turn!

    Agent 47 is my favourite videogame character and I absolutely loved Blood Money, so that's the only reason I have this pic as my avatar. There hasn't been any game like it so far, except maybe Assassin's Creed, but even that doesn't come very close to Blood Money, gameplay-wise.

    I have alternated between a close up of disturbed (I like their music) 10,000 fist album cover, the guy in the crowed and the one I have now - which is just the T from the new Techspot main page - because I like Techspot and do most of my posting here

    Because Scooby Doo is my favorite cartoon and I like Shaggy. I did a bunch of web searching for a decent picture of Shaggy and it was suprisingly hard to find one I could crop his head off and shrink it down to avatar sizes without looking terrible.

    It's the grey cat from Azumanga Daioh. Excellent anime, though somewhat pointless, just like Lucky Star. I guess I'm quite Anime-centric.

    You can choose from the one's listed or upload one of your own...One that reflects your own idiosyncrasy.

    LOL. Lots of good/fun responses while remaining on topic...

    Mine uses the old TechSpot logo letters on a 'superman' alike theme. I will have to come up with something else to match the new design but I think for now I'm better off finishing other pending stuff than my own avatar :)
