Just post your avatar and describe what it is, why you picked it, etc.

EDIT: Cleaned up the post and took away the awful jokes.

Not to dismiss a potentially good idea for a thread but can't everyone see each others avatars when they post?

You are being monitored. This doesn't mean I am a moderator by the way.

Why do I have a feeling this thread will be 'iced'?

~Taa--Daah!!
My avatar picture, right now it's of Adam with the sunset behind him-- it's self explanatory.
I created it myself, used the official art and put the sunset background behind. No real reason for it being my avatar-- mainly for it's prettiness I guess. I like Adam so I can't wait to know more about his character.

I kind of assumed he meant more along the lines of actually explaining it, not just saying "yeah that's my avatar."

In which case, my avatar is a sprite from Knytt which I found to be kind of funny.

Well my avatar is from a picture i found on DeviantART, for some reason i was instantaly drawn to the Helmet. I really like how the artist drew the visor and samus's eye behind it, so i ended up using it as my avatar!

My avatar actually needs some explanation.
Well, most of you already know what it is: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hFu4OE3sE3k

For those of you who are unfamiliar with Mortal Kombat universe, Sub-Zero is a cryo-ninja (ice), which are actually two brothers with the older one being evil and younger being good.
Ironic enough, I've always had two voices in my head (nothing serious, it's just an expression), one's good the other's evil.
Good has always been my prime property, but with age it seems to fade more and more. Last night I even dreamed about choking an innocent man with my bare hands.

So yeah... Sub-Zero.

My avatar is my half my namesake: Zeruel, the 14th Angel. Although he was in the original Evangelion anime the bizzare, (more) overpowered version from 2.0 really blew me away. I've always liked his design, and the fact that he just casually tore everything apart without even being scratched.

That, and I like the sound and look of the name.

Mine is... well, pretty self-explanatory lol.
I found it on the web while looking for a Metroid avvy and it looked pretty col, so I went with it.

So, yeah.

I like it because the visor is in blast mode, much like the Other M trailer.

I don't really like the way my current one came out :roll:

I wanted it to be an abstract flower waking up. I guess it is OK?

My next one will be better, since I'm going to get a scanner soon.

My avatar I drew myself out of randomness. (It's supposed to look horrible by the way.)

Its representing a man getting hacked and his computer exploding. :awesome:

I was checking out the artwork for MOM and found the face of this enemy hilarious. Then I set it as my avatar.

Mine is just a cropped down version of one of the Nintendo E3 Press Kit Pictures, pretty much.
