They say the best gift to give is one you'd give yourself. (That's how celtmanx ended up with an expresso maker 3-years before I got my own.) Most of these avatars were from pictures I've been collecting for myself, for some future date. A couple are quite new, the majority I've been saving for awhile. One is a personalized version of an old favorite, and another is a brand new acquisition.

Thank you guys for a lot of fun yesterday!

You made me a matching icon for my Justin-Long-in-S&M-gear one! Thank you! I am especially honoured since I remember us talking about how you were going to make such an icon for yourself. :)

You're welcome! This avatar required the most work; all I had were two identical low-resolution images, one a magazine scan and the other a VHS screencap :/ I'm glad it paid off!

Thank you kind sir! There is so much I take from this image, all probably not intended. Still I imagine you put some time into each image -- Thanks.

As a side note. I believe my boys would call that "Dad's scary face" Yoda's hand out, eyes and head slanted, about to tell them, "I've had enough. Get ready for bed now!"

I created a non-nude version the spoof of Bouguereau's academic piece Adoration highlighting Yoda's presence through pseudo-sepia representation of the other subjects:

It is truly an awesome avatar but as Tomas and I do not converse often I'm not sure when I'll get to use it!!!

Thank you, you are a most kind and generous gentleman.

You hit the nail on the head. When I ran across that some time ago, I was going to use it in just that capacity, but never got around to it. When I perused my cache of images last night, I figured you for the one to able to use it most. I'm glad you like it.

Oh my God! That is soooo sweet! Wow! You're the first one to do this for me. I'm totally jazzed. I'm never on this side of the table. Feels pretty damn nice :)

You must forgive my excitement. Since I was a kid I always enjoyed giving personalized art or imagery to others. Watching them smile or laugh was such a delightful drug. Now I got my own! hehehe I'm giddy! :D

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

Somebody give this man a lap dance!!!!

...somebody hot that is! ;)

I'm so pleased you're thrilled! This is of course Summer Glau as River Tam in Serenity as she becomes mesmerized at the subliminal message embedded in the Fruity Oaty bar commercial. Her face alight with the glow from the plasma screen as all the background noise dulls to complete silence before she utters the single word, "Miranda."

Then she starts kicking some serious ass!



Fruity Oaty Bars make a man out of a mouse
Fruity Oaty Bars make you burst out of your blouse
Eat them all the time
Let them blow your mind - WOW!

I have struggled to find the words that encapsulate how well this avatar actually fits me. I have worn my online, live journal persona like a homeless man putting on the next available shirt he finds that doesn't smell as bad as the one currently on his back.
Sometimes my commenting moments have been positive and supportive, other times they have been cutting, others still have been glowing and filled with admiration, and my favorite moments are the times when Tomas is left intellectually splayed and exposed.
I guess to sum it up: "I'm the dude playing a dude disguised as another dude". Only Howton knows the REAL Danzigfried, and I believe that is why we are still friends.
Many thanks for the fine gift!

Your imagery is as poetic as you are sincere. Thank you sir. Out of the 260 screencaps I took during this scene, I enjoy this one the most, as it shows his brow furrowed in a complex expression of shocked disbelief while simultaneously conveying that though he may not understand what's happening around him, its obvious he disapproves. So subtle. I'm glad you like it.

I've always wanted one; much better than a teddy bear or doll.

:D

Thank you!

Dude had a camera affixed to his motorcycle doing something like 160mph. I added the blur effect so it would translate in avatar form. I'm glad you like it. It makes me laugh.

Those are great hon, my favorite is the Yoda one. You probably already know that.
