My avatar is usually Bob Marley album covers. Last Christmas I made Bob look like Father Christmas for my avatar. Maybe I'll make a patriotic Bob Marley avatar for the 4th of July.

Hmmm... I'm trying to recall how I could have ever possibly opted for an avatar of a half-naked Jesus with classic washboard abdominals... innocent.gif

Another hearty thanks to Wertz for the avatar, a considerable upgrade from the previous savior! wink2.gif

Mine is a hieroglypgh (the feather of maat).

QUOTE
Represents truth, justice, morality and balance. It was pharaoh's job to uphold Maat. When a pharaoh died, Maat was lost and the world was flung into chaos, only the coronation of a new pharaoh could restore Maat.

Feather of Maat

A little pretentious, but I thought it looked nice. happy.gif

My avatar is Joan of Arc. Cyan found it for me.

My character in Advanced Dungeons & Dragons, the Balder's Gate series, is a paladin, a female knight in shining armor who battles demons, dragons, orcs, giants, mages, etc.

And the more it looks like the young Ingrid Bergman, the better. Thanks, Cyan!

And Bean, I love your walking bean avatar!

Well, I kind of diddled around with the avatars on the site but nothing really rocked my world.

I change my avatar as the mood strikes me, but I really liked Wesley Snipes in Blade 2 so this is my nod to the Daywalker.

I was invited here by a friend from a science fiction and fantasy forum, where I used this avatar (out of their choices.) It is Galadriel from the film version of The Lord of the Rings. I have not seen the films. I do not resemble her in the least, but I like the pensive look on her face. I just decided to stick with it, since I am used to it.

my current avatar is the police sketch theodore "unabomber" kaczynski, for obvious reasons. I also use a picture of myself in front of an inverted reversed american flag wearing a mask up to my nose, and a photo of a palestinian boy getting ready to throw a rock at a tank. the last one came from a poster with this on it:

QUOTE
MY HERO:
This is my hero, Nabil. He is eight years old. He goes into the streets alone, in his rubber shoes and t-shirt to fight with stones against Israeli tanks. Two years ago Nabil's father was killed by Israeli troops while six year old Nabil looked on helpless. Later the IDF blew up Nabil's school. Two weeks after this photo was taken an Israeli sniper shot nabil through the head, killing him instantly.

I change my avatar about every five minutes or so - just to keep people on their toes. cool.gif

If anyone wants help with an avatar - or wants one specially designed or whatever - cyan and I are quite willing to help out. There are others here who have also done a few for various participants, but I don't want to offer their services without their permission - sure, they can post for themselves if they like. wink2.gif Anyway, just drop us a PM and we'll do what we can to help.

I'll offer Mike's assistance.... w00t.gif whistling.gif

I'd offer mine but I don't know how to photoshop anything yet
(cyan?!? shifty.gif ).

And like Wertz, my avatar is always changing. I usually try and match it to my signature. If you can't tell, mine is currently a frame from the last scene of Planet of the Apes where the Statue of Liberty is poking out of the sand. I'm due to change it soon...probably tonight and this post will no longer make sense.

Mine is of our dearly departed chocolate lab, Madison. She was probably the greatest dog I have ever been around. I was in the process of working with her on Frisbee catching and "long Jump" at the pier at the lake by our house. If anyone has ever watched the Great Outdoor Games then you know what I am talking about. She was hit by a car last year by someone speeding through our nieghborhood when she was going over to say hi to our neighbor.

I miss her!! sad.gif
