Spookify your avatar

Postby Bruce N H » Sun Oct 23, 2005 6:11 pm

Hey all,

Taking a clue from Nate: Image the Ork: Image and Formendacil: Image I spookified my avatar: Image.

Here's a bigger pic, that includes a bit of a preview of something that's been sitting unphotographed in my closet for about six weeks now:

Anyway, has anyone else made a Halloween-themed avatar?

I like your new avatar a lot, very spooky indeed.
Mine doesn't really need spookifying, it's good enough already.

Hey my avatar got noticed 8)

I think I saw two other Halloween themed avatars out there, I know there was Graynar's and I think some had one with a jack o lantern/hockey player, I don't even know if that was on CC but it is on a LEGO forum.

I think by far, the scariest is Bruce's, that pumpkin dude looks really creepy in that dark hallway. I'd say the one that freaked me out the most was Nathan's. :wink:

Well, I'm not a huge Halloween fan myself, but the decorations (including avatars) are always fun, and after a year and a half of having the same avatar, I figured it was time to start having fun, while still keeping the original look for instant recognition.

I might, but I think ther best by far is that arched roof of yours, Bruce. Did you use arches underneath those plates?

There we go, spookified. It's a little rough around the edges as it was intended for another forum with a ligher background, but it works for a while.

I did notice this - very cool change-up.

I could change mine... maybe a pumkin will be in order... better do it quick though...! I do like your avatar Bruce - while the head looks really cool in the cowl, I also like the green hands... it's a little touch that really looks nice.

Oh... I like the arch too - that looks very slick. ;-)

I finally saw this thread and had to add orange [1] to my avatar ;)

Ben

1. Shouldn't LEGO make knights with orange in their colors?
