    I have chosen this portrait due to the mohican haircut. I have never had and I will never have a mohican haircut in real life, I don't even like punk music but this haircut gives me an illusion of freedom and brings to my mind the rebelious teenager I used to be.

    My avatar just beams out my attitude. Guess what mood I am usually in. :grin: Its bright, cheery, and has one kick a$$ beard.

    Though it kinda looks like a white Uncle Phil...

    [​IMG] There's a remarkable resemblance between my avataar and myself...

    /me rushes off to remove any contrary evidence to be found on SP photos.

    [​IMG] I just always loved goblins. I always try to trow a goblin or 2 in my campaings. Also Goblins are cunning but not really strong. That looks a bit like me!

    I think he just looks cool. And since I usually play assassin/thief chars, this was like love at first sight. Could have been a bit darker though...

    My avatar just seems to perfectly fit the stereotype of my profession - the second I saw it the old corny "what would you like it to be" joke instantly popped into my head so I figured why not use it ;) .

    I often play a divine character. The Halo intrigued me. I'm interested in the divine, in games as well as in real life.

    This is the portrait I used for IWD2 and NWN. It's perfect for a rogue-cleric of the Copybook Headings. But it doesn't really look like me (save the expression). I'm not grey-haired YET!

    Ever since I got the Monster Manual, Beholders just plain intrigued me, as intelligent and crafty supervillains. Naturally, I jumped at the chance to get the portrait of my favorite foe.

    It looks a bit like me, the hair and all. What really got me though was the face armour (don't know another way to describe it) and the colour. I like that green. It gives it something mysterious.

    Looks like me, except my hair is darker and ears not quite so pointy. ;)

    ArtE -- he looks so cuddly! (That's one of my favorite avatars!) :D

    @ Grey

    I still don't understand what the hell the whole "Copybook Headings" thing is supposed to be all about. Care for an explanation? Curious rabbits shouldn't be trifled with.

    Mine just seemed to match the name. The quote is from The Hobbit, naturally.

    @DR: Grey's Source. A "copybook" was a collection of proverbs & conventional wisdom.

    It was (you may say) satisfactory. (5 points to anyone who knows the quote source off-hand.)

    If memory serves, the book of Revelations has Jesus saying "...I am the Alpha and Omega, the first and the last, the beginning and the end." But you've never really struck me as terribly Jesus-ish fellah, Tal - so I'm guessing it came from a book or movie or something.

    For some reason, I'm thinking T.S. Elliot. Which is odd, since I'm not overly familiar with his works.
