View topic - How does your avatar express you?
I don't like using popular characters because it is unoriginal to do so, and there are few which I feel are similar to me. Generic pictures show no character, so I do not care for them either. Many pictures, such as harisenbon and keatonatron's avatar, I like quite a lot due to originality and portrayal of character, but again, I look at an avatar as a portrayal of one's self, so most interesting pictures do not fit my boring personality
This also portrays a bit of my perfectionism - I can never find or make anything which I truly like, so this is another reason that I do not have an avatar.

Anyway it's cool how we're analyzing all of those mysterious avators here. Signatures and passwords also have expressions in them. Maybe someone should make a topic on past passwords people have used?
I was planning on using the picture below for my avator, and the picture in my URL for my signature.

I drew this on MS paint in the morning at someone's house. I like drawing stuff with portals and meteors, because without action the picture is boring. But I'm not really big into drawing anymore...that was so....Junior Year. So most of the pictures I post nowadays is stuff I made back then.
As for the origin one in the signature, years ago I wrote a (fanfiction) story talking about a charizard standing behind a shadow-draped sillohete of the character Ash, used as the avator for the admin of a fictional web forum. This is a story I later edited and gave to my English teacher for a project on "My hero." So I ended up copy-pasting some images and doing some crude editing to create a sig that would go along with my avator name on a pokemon video game web site I was posting on.
Anyway, the reason that I still hold onto the signature and the avator is a tribute to my childhood and the days when I could play and play without a care to the future. Eden, in a word. (The other reason is because it makes me traceable to old aquaintances...and those two pictures are actually my own and not something I ripped from the internet...)
edit: to the poster before me, doesn't your username take a long time to type in? Seems like mine takes a lot of time already. Anything more longer than yours and I'd forget my username! Wait...from memory your username was tsuyuwoha....?
