    How do you choose your avatars?

    Post by djgq42 on Wed Mar 07, 2012 12:09 pm

    been looking at members avatars recently and find them really interesting. just wondering at your reasons for choosing the pics that represent you on this forum. do they represent an aspect of your personality or are they just from some movie/ manga that you like? or maybe both?

    I just chose it because I had seen the picture before and found it funny, it's very apt for me too big grin

    Because I love Warhammer. And the Chosen look is part of the inspiration for my main guy in Dark Souls.

    I prefer 40k. Ave Imperator!

    On topic, my avatar is a portrait of the good Sir Winston Churchill of course. You've probably already figured that out before I wrote this though...

    Mine is from one of my best Dark Souls moments....the time I dropped 1,000 prism stones to see if I could find some sort of secret color. If you look real closely you can see my character behind all the shimmer.

    V for Vendetta is my favorite movie. So, that is my Avvy for everything. During Christmas, I add a Santa hat to the pic.

    Mine is a pic I took and doctored of the freaky Giant Koala in Victoria. We love making giant things over here - We've got massive versions of a sheep, a banana and a prawn (amongst other things) dotted around the country. The koala just happens to be one of the lamest and always makes me laugh.
