I notice that I often apply a mental "voice" to posts based on the avatar.
So it got me to wondering if people actually looked like their little tiny representative picture...

...and I have work to do that I'm avoiding so I posted this instead!

Nope, can't say that I do. Actually, I look closer to Lord Inar's ... Just taller, and with a smaller beard.

And no Axe.

Nope.

It'd be cool (and creepy as Hell!) if I did:


Out of curiosity: What mental "voice" do I have?

I do! I am in fact over 7 feet tall and speak to people as if they are beneath my contempt.

Actually, no. That's a lie. But I am amused by the mental "voice" that my avatar might elicit from someone.

EDIT: Now I look like my avatar. Or my avatar looks like me, whichever way you wanna do it.

I look nothing like it. It does look like my Deadlands character though.

Well since that's the first time I really got to see what your avatar looked like, I didn't really have any preconceptions. You were "blue and copper blob guy" until I saw the larger picture!

No, I don't look like my Avatar at all; but in a way, you could say that he looks like me.

I don't have a mustache. Or a hat like that.

Yup. I have no avatar because I'm a non-existant figment of some else's imagination. Mr. Green

Or not.

Boldfist was my first Star Wars character for a WEG d6 campaign. Then it became my handle when playing Battletech and it's stuck ever since.

My fist's are not bold and never have been. I haven't used them since the fourth grade. Very Happy

Nah, But it's not that big really.

I often do wear a shield-shaped badge at work though.

Blue & Copper Blop Guy? Laughing
I like that.

Mine used to look like me. I had a small version of this picture.



From when they put a picture of me on the BBC, and also said a bad word.

Hmmm... a float blue Mesoamerican skull. I'm going to say, yes, I look exactly like my avatar.
