The 3DR Forum User Avatar Thread Part 2
I've changed the topic, since this generally is more than the original title, which was "So why did you pick your avatar?" We'll make it about user avatars, but let's stick to the subject. I saw a bunch of crap removed from the back end of Part 1. AVATAR TOPICS RELATIVE TO THIS FORUM ONLY, PLEASE.

Having said that.. My current one (Wallace Duke) was picked because someone pointed out that I was still using my Christmas Wall-E one. I looked through my archive of forum avatar images, and chose this one, because it's funny.

It does make me wonder. Do any of the old timers from these forums remember who did that? Someone from the forums here did this MANY a moon ago, but I cannot remember who. I think it was from before RedSplat joined the forums (under the name IceT) - that's who usually does these goofy little pieces of art for me. But I can't remember who - honestly. Anyone know for sure?

The problem is that even if you told me the right answer, I wouldn't remember. That's why I was hoping someone would know for sure.

I'd shoot for Docded, Tony, maybe Kev_Hectic...
Of course you can't verify since you don't remember, but maybe someone else knows for sure if it was any of these guys, or someone else...

About my avatar, it's an Alien, i ALWAYS have an alien in my avatars, because it's an awesome movie... Phait was kind enough to edit it to blend into the forum background more, like bashing through it, and also giving it a slick improved reflections on it's body...

There's a girl, too, a robot girl from a comic series i like, i'm a huge fan of the artist and his style of humor, so i put her there... Looks like the Alien wants to capture her, so it's kinda cool i think

I rarely switch Avatars, if i do, it's usually variations of older ones, of course always with an Alien in it...

Did they play in the superbowl? No. Therefore your post is irrelevant. Nice try though.

NFL is an ORGANIZATION. As is the WRC and NBA. The TEAMS are franchises.

She's a major character from Black Lagoon. This vid basically sums up the entire series. Shooting, explosions, more shooting, a bit of fan service, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iDaJt...eature=related

and .. a lot of swearing. Don't watch this one unless your comfortable with swearing.

I figured it out. It was kev_hectic. I found the original file (which I'm attaching here), and in the filename it has his name.

As soon as I saw it, I remembered naming it that, so I'd remember down the line who originally made it.
