Why Did You Choose Your Avatar?

Post  Guest on Mon Apr 27, 2009 1:18 pm

We've got a thread for Usernames, how about one for Avatars?

Do you prefer to remain image-less? Have you gone for one of the forums' avatars? Did you use a favourite image of yours? Does your Avatar 'mean' anything? Did you just Google for a cool image?

I googled for an image that suited my username. It has lots of colour, and the word Love. Perfect.

Forum one.. I had a different one, but it was similar to one I used before..and I fancied a change.
Or more accurately, I was bullied into changing it.. :cyclops: Mad Razz Embarassed cat 👽

Sorry.. trying out the emotes.. Fun! :afro: lol!

I haven't decided on one yet, but it will most likely be Josh Holloway.

I will have him because he's gorgeous!

Balls. He might be cute, but all that whining drives me up the wall so I couldn't fancy him if I tried.

Always thought he was yummy in Party of Five though!

It was the first avatar in my photobucket 'avatars' folder. I couldn't be arsed searching through my account for other appropriately sized images so I just grabbed the first one there.

I like it though. My hair looks nicer than in my BC wedding avatar (which was not actually taken on my wedding day, shock horror!)

I nabbed one from the forum choices. It seemed to fit - vaguely!

I had one a long time ago, when I met TP and he signed my Corgi copy of Guards! Guards! but then I leant it to my god-sister and I think she sold it for drugs...

...DH found it somewhere and sent it to me. It was and is one of my interchangeable avatars I use on RvB. You may, or may not, see some of the others as we go!

ETA TP had it made as a stamp which he stamped into all signed books way back then. THAT'S what was in the book!

In your profile, you're asked to upload a pic or provide a URL with a pic on it. That's your avatar.

Is TP Terry Pratchett? I have absolutely no idea, but I'm just guessing from looking at your avatar.

This avatar (the horse) was an image that came up when I googled Freedom. It is far more appropriate than I would ever explain on here!

Mine is my son James, with some stringy cheese.

However, my usual avatar is the .44 Magnum drawn by NeNe Thomas for Wizards of the Coast for the White Wolf Jyhad / Vampire:the Eternal Struggle card game. I've used it now for 10 years and it's one of my favourite of all her artwork, she's a stunning fantasy artist.
