Title: New Avatar (my pic, not the ship)
Post by: guesst on January 22, 2004, 10:02:11 pm
okay, I did some photoshopping recently and at the same time (finally) got access to some web space, so I wanted to personalize my avatar pic. However, some of you may remember a work I did a while back of and ancient shofixti warrior, which has been my tag line for a long time now, and I can't decide. Should I have my ancient shofixti be my avatar pic, or should I go straight for super drew?

So I ask you all which you like better.

1), the SuperDrew:

or 2) Shofixti, the suicidal warrior:

I suspect that I know what everyone will think, so I might as well make the change now, however, if shofixti wins out, I'll change it.

For grins, here's links to the full sized pics:

Id say shofixti too.

I vote shofixti

I'd like to point out that the shofixti is very busy on the small scales, and if it is shrunk it will lose a lot of quality. SuperDrew does not seem to suffer from this problem.

Assuming that that is solved, I'd say Shofixti; if it isn't, SuperDrew.

Or crop the shofixti's head, no need to reduce everything.

Go for the rat, over the baby.

Rat??


Title: Re: New Avatar (my pic, not the ship)

Rat = Shofixti

I thought they said shofixiti's were more like marsupials.  :P


Title: Re: New Avatar (my pic, not the ship)
Post by: FalconMWC on January 27, 2004, 01:40:54 am
They are, but unfortuatly for them they have been given (some say earned) the occasional nickname rats. Word has it that if you call a shofixti a rat in his face .....  ;D ;D ;D

the pics dont work any more


Title: Re: New Avatar (my pic, not the ship)
Post by: FalconMWC on January 27, 2004, 05:35:53 pm
Anyway - I vote for the rat.

*Out of the closet comes a shofixti complete with sword and glory device.*

I mean Shofixti, yeah thats what I meant, uh - You see Mr. Shofixti that I uhmmmmmm......      ::)


Title: Re: New Avatar (my pic, not the ship)
Post by: guesst on January 27, 2004, 07:29:42 pm
And the Winner is Shofixti, then.

Man, what sort of wierdos choose a suicidal marsupial over a baby?

Ah well, you're getting what you want.


Title: Re: New Avatar (my pic, not the ship)

Our kind of weirdos.  ;)

What else can you expect from a Ur-quan Masters forum?!  ;)


Title: Age
Post by: Zeep-Eeep on February 12, 2004, 03:25:36 am
The title under the picture says "Ancient Warrior". Somehow I doubt that many of the little guys get to be very old. What with blowing themselves up and all.
So, I'm thinking:
Either this guy is really good....or a coward.


Title: Re: New Avatar (my pic, not the ship)
Post by: FalconMWC on February 12, 2004, 04:05:30 am
Well, with the way that he is holding the glory device, I would say he is very good or been captured and freed.

Did you make that Shofixti yourself? It's pretty good.

Bio: Auron's cool and Gundam Wing is a good show, but I really think DJ's avatar deserves some recognition. Har har har...

I think one too, since 3 will be shrunk so it will look redicilous.

Btw, don't expect me to reply on the first part of your messege.


Title: Re: New Avatar (my pic, not the ship)
Post by: FalconMWC on February 12, 2004, 05:25:46 pm
I will agree with DJ on this - I think that 1 and 3 are your best bet IF they stayed the same. However because you have to shrink it down means that 3 will not look good at all. (Though could you shrink 3 for us to be sure?). If 3 can't be shrunk without damaging it then I would say number 1.

Ya. It was an experiment in coloring line work that I did a while back. I also make a whole back story for him. He is the first shofixti to strap a glory device on his back. Hence the reason he's an Ancient Shofixti Warrior. He did live for a while tho because even with a load 2 1/2 times his weight on his back he was still unbeatable in hand to hand combat.

And DJ, where'd you get your new avatar? What's that from?

heres number 3 resized


Title: Re: New Avatar (my pic, not the ship)
Post by: FalconMWC on February 12, 2004, 08:47:21 pm
I vote 1 - the resized one is just to small to show the detail.


Title: Re: New Avatar (my pic, not the ship)

edit: SD = Super Deformed

I guess that's okay, but animated chicks can only be good to a point. I like mine live.


Title: Re: New Avatar (my pic, not the ship)
Post by: Zeep-Eeep on February 14, 2004, 05:16:39 pm
Amen to that. Live, warm, breathing. All requirements.
But, hey, nothing wrong with a little eye candy. Especially if it's half out of the wrapper.

Off MAMEWorld there's a bunch of animated GIFs, many of them animated jigglies (including tha chick from X-Men CoTA) that would make excelent avatars when resized.

I'm saying this because yes, live=good, animated=plentiful. It's a question of quantity over quality.

Hmm... I was trying to change my avatar to one of those I used on the sluggy forums, but apparently the forum here refuses to use it because the url doesn't end in an image extension. Or sluggypics isn't giving up the image upon request, as I was told it does. Hmm.

but here it is if you are curious, and you can get the link to go...

Not SC-related, no. But suitable for someone with my username nonetheless.

I clicked the link and it said "not authorised" maybe the server has the same problem.

NOTE: It is spelled that way on the page.
