I was just sitting there suddenly I got sweetie belle’s face.

I actually made mine in MS Paint. Originally it was for Pokemon Profile Picture Month back in December 2010, but I feel it works nicely here as well. When I become a mod, it’s going to be a shiny Charizard.
EDIT: Lord Sweetie Belle added the pony head, in honour of International Sweetie Belle Day. It’ll be restored tomorrow at noon.

Mine was created in Illustrator… its based on some 2D mmo.

Well, my main avatar:

I created myself with a picture of Yakov Smirnoff, a Fedora, and some tedious background-erasing for the Fedora picture (Which I eventually saved as a PNG so I could have it forever exploitable). I cleaned it up recently so it doesn’t look so messy.

The one I have now was created by Sweetie Belle for Sweetie Belle Day. I’m actually not entirely sure when I’m going to change it. IT’S JUST SO EPIC.

Wait, you mean we pick our own avatars? This was just on my account when I made it. Strange…

Mine changes everyday, but it’s always a derivative of the Awesome Smiley.

It started as an inside joke in my animation class, where I’d slip it into the scene somewhere. I later made an account here, and continued the joke.

I took a picture of my cat. The end.

Mine was originally from an old website i went to (it was the skeleton face.) but that was back when i didnt know about TTGL and then one day i found TTGL memebase so i made a profile and i put that picture on there, then i found KYM and here i am. I also asked a friend to shop on the glasses.

This is Negi Springfeild, the main character from the popular Japanese manga and anime Negima! Negi is a 10 year old mage who is, at one point halfway though the manga, forced into a foxgirl crossplay. Because of this, Negi is fetured on the first list of traps.

Here is a picture of what he really looks like without the dress.

The dance is the Pappara Dance.

Original image:

A couple of minutes in photoshop later, and viola! Avatar:

But this wasn’t good enough, so I made 17 more of the same image with the hue on her shirt changed by 20 in each successive image. My original plan was to change the avatar every day, as well as my username, when it hit me: why not COMBINE THEM ALL? So I made a .gif and it turned out beautifully.

I have to say that this is my favourite avatar that I have ever used.

Considering the fact I want to remain myself on this site, all of my avatars have been self portaits. Except for the first one I had which was this:

Just to give you an idea what he’s like:

I drew mine, based off of a sort of trilogy of games I’ve been making up.
I can explain it, if people really want an explanation of why I chose some crazy cat to represent me or whatnot.

Well, the whole red panda thing I’m pretty sure came from the forums here. My first post ever was in a Red Leader Standing By thread (Red desktop, standing by.). My second post ever was in a thread I made myself asking if the concept of Music Monday on Twitter was a meme because I was still a noob back then. And my third post was in the same Red Leader thread as my first post and I put “Red panda, standing by.” I can only assume that after Googling “red panda” and seeing all the pretty pictures of them in Google images, I decided to be one.

I just Googled “Silver Chariot”, the Stand of Jean Pierre Polnareff in JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure /p>

Then I found a picture of the Super Action Figure of the Stand.

This is the figure in another pose.

I just go on Danbooru and do a search for Ayumu Kasuga, aka Osaka.

Not much of a story is it.

I’ll be using this beautiful piece of art drawn for me by Captain Blubber more frequently from now on though.

But after a couple of weeks I changed it to what it is now; a picture of me without my head.

My first avatar was a mine craft creeper.

Then i decided to use a gif of my gameplay from Portal 2, in which Wheatley brags to Chel. I just felt identified.

Since it was SO big it made webpages load at the speed of snails, I decided to photoshop a top hat, a stache and a monocle in it. Recently I just added red swirl into Wheatley’s eye.

But since I posted on RF wall he has been messing with it.

Well, let’s just say midnight snacking, playing capcom games, watchin’ toons, reading comics and drawing at the same time caused what happened to become my avatar! That, plus for the reason that no one else drew it up before… yeeeeeah.

Felt bad because my old avatar looked like poop, so i watched some MLP and tried to make it look like me, clothes, hair ect.

Jul 12, 2011 at 11:17PM EDT

I first made a quick doodle with the msn pen tool, parodying ceiling cat, some time mid 2009.
Thought it was decent so I saved it.

Then I had coloured it about a month later (cuz im lazy) in OpenCanvas and then I started using it as a simple avatar everywhere.
Too lazy to make new ones.
