Profile Pic, Reason?
« on: July 08, 2013, 11:35:43 am »
I see a lot of different pics and i would just love to know why you guys picked what you picked :)

Mine is of a little 3 week old kitten we found on the streets who was covered in fleas the size of coco pops and smelly, we cleaned him up, de-wormed him, fed the half-starved little wretch and potty trained him. After all this we were then told we were not allowed to keep him as we lived in a flat and that we were in breach of some animal rights. so a way of keeping him is through all the pictures we have :)  still miss it when he used to cuddle up to us at night :/  (sorry about any feels)

What about you guys?

Mine is from a book, Divergent.... I liked the Dauntless, so I went with their emblem.

Mine is from the artist of a now more or less defunct webcomic... it's basically a version of myself in the character style of his comic.

It is a picture of me at a steam punk convention. My wife is more into cosplay than I. Fortunately she can't have a scruffy mundane on her arm so she goes shopping for me, and I get to look cool without the effort.

Mine is some concept art I'm desinging for my clan NAF. I'm having quite a bit of fun doing it seeing as how this is the first time I'm attempting to do something like this.

Despite the name, I'm not really an role-playing account, so I didn't want to use an actual picture of the Shat.

The ship seemed like a better choice.

Uhh,

It's a dragon.

Why is this even a question? Dragons are cool. So my profile is a dragon. Simple. As. That. I may have to put Raft's logo on it somewhere.

Nah, you can keep your pic however you want it. Only throw the logo in if you really want to.

I've used this same Sonic avatar on every forum/message board dating back to 2006 or so. My internet moniker always used to be "Hedgehog" and I'm a big Sonic the Hedgehog fan, so it just made sense.

urm... it's a spoon... ... with a sergeants insignia.. it makes sense.. right?
...


Seriously though it started with me coming up with my brilliant nickname, and getting a random spoon-image as my steam avatar. Then my friends liked the idea and got similar names. One of 'em, Lt. Plate, then came up with the idea of putting an Lt insignia on top of the cuttlery. So I just swiped a Sgt insignia from Halo 3 and so I got this. 

Then after having that for quite a while my stalker actually found the old picture I'd used for it, and so I decided to make my own version of it. And so I got what I have now.

You have a stalker?
had.. hehe yeah kinda. t'was some random 13 year old kid who popped up on steam one day, said he had a friend who was in the same steam-group as me. I was like "aaalright... I guess?". Then he started messaging me, jumping into my games, playing with me and following me around everywhere in cyberland... was kinda wierd, and a bit funny so I just let it run. I just reffered to him as "my stalker" to my friends, hehe.

I think the last I saw of him was when I accidentally left him with my old regiments clan-mates, after he'd just joined that as well.
