Over time, many of us have used multiple avatars while playing these games and others have stuck to just one. Others, still, don't use one at all...lame.
Some of you may still have your old avatars stored away somewhere on your pc. I have several of mine and I thought, why not share? Show us the avatars you've used in the past and give us some history on them. (Granted, you'd have to take time to upload them to a service like imgur.com to post them, but it doesn't take long. I'll kick it off. Of course, I've probably used some I can't recall and no longer have, but here's the bulk of them.
My original avatar from Cyber Nations circa 2007, a Hitman avatar with a drop shadow smaller than the typical 150x150 px dimensions most commonly used. I used this for the first year or so while I led GUN as "Zhaan".
Also in 2007, Kevin Marks started up Cyber Citizens and just after the release of Mafia 2, I began using an avatar of Vito Scaletta (around 2011). This is still the avatar I have in my profile over there to this day, a running total of 3 - 3 1/2 years.
Later, when Project Terra came out, I used the same pic to create a new avatar, modifying the background, size, and position, tying it in with the Blackstone Commission. You can see the BCOM shield in a faint transparency.
Then I came up with other iterations of BCOM background avatars that I swapped out while in PT and in Pixel Nations. The first one below was a rough cutout that didn't look very good.
Agent Coulson (SHIELD, Avengers):
At some point, I had a Star Trek themed alliance (briefly) over in CN, and went with this image from the Star Trek (2009) movie.
Also favored this Kirk avatar from the same film:
I used this one while over in PN as well, taken from a meme relating to the show How I Met Your Mother, featuring Barney Stinson's "Bro Code".
Early on in Politics & War, I ran with Heisenberg from the show Breaking Bad:
One of my most recent avatars, a generic mafia themed image:
And finally, I used this one briefly in P&W after joining SK. It's Tyrion Lannister of Game of Thrones, of course.
There are 3 or 4 I've left out because I'm not sure what the forum restriction is set at for images here. Anyone else care to share?
