My avatar is just a picture of my Sim, Bronco. I picked it because he's my favorite Sim, and so far, he's the only Sim I've ever cared about when it comes to aging and dying. I try to keep him as young as possible, and make him breed with as many female Sims as he can find to pass on his genes. And while I already know he's not real, I still think he's smexy.

So, what's your avatar's history?

when you said breed, I automatically thought animal lol....

My avatar isn't a sim, idk when i make one i like as much as you like bronco, i might make it my avatar! Anyway, my avatar is a pic I drew for a friend, he really liked x-23 from marvel vs capcom 3, so he asked me to draw him a pic... i rather liked how it came out, but as i don't have a scanner the quality of the pic isn't awesome.... oh well!

so that's my avatar's story... :D

I really like Moss from IT Crowd. There's really no story behind it. I just needed an avatar and it appealed to me. Plus, it's friendly!

Edit: It is now the Silence from Doctor Who... just because. *shrug*

My avatar, a drawing of Chell, is the esoteric, silent protagonist of Portal and in the single-player campaign of Portal 2. Although Chell's origins are unknown, she was definitely among the people present during GLaDOS' activation in 200-, as GLaDOS locked down the facility immediately afterward; information revealed in Portal 2 implies that Chell was the child of an Aperture scientist and was touring the facility on Bring Your Daughter To Work Day when GLaDOS took over. According to the psychological profile in her personnel file, Chell is "abnormally stubborn" and refuses to ever give up, no matter how daunting the challenge.

My avatar is a picture of Barbara Gordon as Oracle. For those unfamiliar, she is a member of the Batman family. She is Jim Gordon's daughter and she used to be Batgirl until the Joker shot her, paralyzing her from the waist down. Now she feeds Batman and the rest of the Batman family their information, hacks into protected databases and sites to gather more information, and is generally an untouchable, nigh godlike figure in her ability to get things done with information and computers.

...She's awesome. :D

My avatar represents one of my personalities (Yes I have splits.) The "Freeman" As I called it, is the humorous yet sophisticated. Just like the sim made for this personality, Dr. S. Freeman, I have to change him up a bit, but. He works in the science career aswell as owns a local cafe down Terminal City.

I have a sudden feeling to clean my room.

Well, mine's probably pretty obvious. lol

Shockingly enough, I didn't even create it, but I have heavily edited it. The original one had lost a lot of quality to being uploaded to where it was or something like that.

I totally would have a Simself picture with a bassoon instead, but you know bassoons don't exist in The Sims world.

Mine fluctuates between pokemon gifs and random pictures from Bogleech .

It's a foongus OH DON'T GET ME STARTED ON FOONGUS. <3 I'm thinking of changing it though, I get bored so easily. Maybe something from this girl, she gives me an artboner.

actually, my avatar is completely unique, you cannot find it anywhere on the web except as my avatars.

The reason why is I made it myself. (by the way of gimp 2.0 and unfreez)

The reason it exists is because it was originally for a java applet, but I cut that project.

It is stored on my computer and I'll give it to anyone who wants it, just don't use it as your avatar.

PM me about it

It's my face. But I change it a bit with photo program. Then it makes my face shaped into a box.

My avatar is a .gif animation of Tulio from the 2000 Dreamworks movie called The Road to El Dorado. I chose it because I thought it conveys a sentiment of mild abhorrence -- something I feel adds to my general ethos in the Debate Room.

I had a summer job at a high quality bakery. This is a close up of the first batch of "biskvier" I made all on my own.

The "biskvi" is one of the standard treats you will find in pretty much every Swedish café. On a chewy base of baked almond paste, you put chocolate buttercream. Then you coat the buttercream with dark chocolate. They are delicious, and the ones I learned to make at the bakery are the best I ever had.

Excuse me, I have to go inte the kitchen now. (***goes to check if there are enough almonds to make a batch right now***)

I thought this over again and again... what can I chose for my Avie? It had to be simple, yet complex. It needed to express the sarcastic and chaotic nature of me, with still adding a touch of humor. So I compromised.

Simple - Check
Sarcastic - sure... yeah.
Chaotic - whatever
Humor - none whatsoever.


Anyway, my siggie addresses the somewhat problematic aspect of... oh I give up. It leaves you no question who you are typing to. ME!!!! *muses to self* I need to have a avatar that leaves no question of the GENDER of me. One of my fave things to do on the internet is telling people the guy you have been talking to is female...
And there goes the fire station down the street. Sigh.

I've been watching the show Psych a lot recently and love it. So I picked Shawn, the main character.
In every episode in the show there's a pineapple hidden somewhere, so I figured why not use a pic of that. :P

I love my avatar, it signifies the significance of the significant Other. With regard to the issue of content, the disjunctive perturbation of the spatial relationships visually and conceptually activates the essentially transitional quality, especially when conjoined within toxic pomposity of negative space. Ahhh... the iconicity of the Exploratory motifs visually and conceptually activates the essentially transitional quality, though I am troubled by how the internal dynamic of the biomorphic forms verges on codifying the accessibility of the work. I mean really, just try entering this work when the mechanical mark-making of the figurative-narrative line-space matrix spatially undermines the substructure of critical thinking and you'll see how difficult it is to conceptualize the inconceivable negativity of the Other.

Or possible, I just hate labels. Same thing really...

This is a joke right?

Mine's of the Ghostwriter from my favorite TV cartoon show as a kid, Danny Phantom. I feel like he represents me, because we both stay locked in a room filled with books and are on the computer/writing all day.

My avatar isn't actually an avatar but a logo. It represents me as a creator and hopefully one day people will see it and immediately think, "Oh, I know that logo. That's Morphead's work." I used to change it all the time as I got bored of it easily, but I was watermarking my creation uploads with it so decided to make something I could live with for a long time. After some time in Fw liked this one enough to keep it. I've been thinking about changing it, but I've still yet to research what consequences, if any, would arise from that.

My avatar is a picture of Aaliyah, an R&B singer who died in a plane crash at 22 years old. She was one of the first singers I actually idolized and I was very upset when I heard the news of her death. I chose to use her picture as my avatar because I think she was absolutely gorgeous, I still listen to her music frequently, and I always liked the fact that she played on her vocal strengths and understood her limits. Too many singers are eager to push their voices to the breaking point just so they can attempt to reach notes that are not possible for them, but Aaliyah accepted the fact that she had a very soft but smooth singing voice.
