Do you have a unique avatar? (Read topic)
Posted 10/4/11
I've been on Crunchyroll for some time (Even if I don't post much), and there's one thing I've noticed.

Almost every user has an avatar that's either an anime character or a person. This isn't exactly surprising, but I still do find it strange. Also, by "Unique" I mean something different, such as my avatar.

Any reason that you'd like to state why you have a unique/normal avatar? If it is "Unique", why do you think it is? What makes it so?

I couldn't find another topic with this kind of discussion, but if there is, please feel free to lock/delete this thread.

I'd say I have an unique avatar. Most of my avatars have been unique, though in my more foolish days I used avatars that I often see being used now.

Yeah, I personally made mine.

@Color: My god! What an exquisite, beautiful work of art! I can see you were inspired by some of the greatest artists in our time. Do I see some Picasso in there? Incredible! Absolutely amazing! Also: What the heck is the stick-man doing?

Ahaha, it is, right? I'm grateful and all but I just want to ask if there's any form of sarcasm there and I deeply apologize if I'm wrong.
Ah, the stick man? He just wants to get out of the box but he's just unable to do that yet.

No, it's honestly not sarcasm. I'm actually jealous, because I have -no- artistic talent whatsoever. I can't EVEN draw a stick figure...It drives me nuts sometimes.

I'm just so glad that there's SOMEBODY out there with a picture that's not taken directly out of Grandma Crunchyroll's Oven of Reposted Images...

Any back story on this stick-man? How did he get inside the box, and why is he trying to leave? Is there a villain behind the curtains, or is it a psychological trap, referring to the poor guy actually being trapped inside his mind, with the box just being a metaphor?

I should be careful, I'm delving in pretty deep...Any further and I might make it on someone's hit-list...

I think that mine is unique, but maybe I just think that way because I made it myself. It kinda describes my personality, being a bit partial to the retro stuff, classic video games, and the like.

Anyway, I've had this avatar since the day I signed up with CR. Not sure why I've never changed it. I kinda wanted to make a Gintama avatar in a similar 8-bit fashion; just haven't had the time to do it... heh... maybe one of these days I'll get around to it.

Dude, I totally agree. I've always been a fan of pixel-like games, mostly played online. Minigames like "Great dungeon in the sky" and stuff like that are just awesome! Too bad that this generation prefers "Ultra-realistic" graphics...I've had my avatar since I signed up as well. Oh, and yes, it's unique. Is it an anime character? No. Is it a badly-shopped picture of somebody? No.

I love Gintama, fyi.

I think so. You don't see to many food avatars.

Oh god...I'm so bloody STUPID! I thought your avatar was a turtle, not a cheeseburger.

*facedesk*

Nice to see another unique avatar although!

Heeeh...

This doesn't seem to be going anywhere. If any mods see this, feel free to delete it. This thread is pointless :P.

@ Dave1004
Yours looks like something from 4chan but yeah it differs from all the anime-based avis you normally see here

@ ColorCircle
Oh! That's what it's doing...! I thought it was just about to piss on something. :O

Only reason I think mine is slightly different is because I poorly edited it and it's actually supposed to be a dude, but some people must know that. >.> I'm not sure if I did at first....but that was a while ago. >.>

I just try to keep it simple and go with characters that I like and that aren't common.

I haven't seen many other people with avatars the same as mine either.

I would say yes since I am the only person I know of that currently has that particular picture as their avatar. But I would also say no because I have seen other avatars with those characters in it.
