Mine was drawn for me by a very cool former forumite back when the GSF(Gamespy Forums) didn't suck, by the name of Snidely Pookums.

My current pic is heavily photomanipulated, with one of Christopher Shy's excellent works as a baseline. I wanted to show my appreciation for both the old mage and the new and I came up with this. It's not bad.

My usual one, I hand-crafted mine from the bones of my defiled victims, quenched with the blood of the innocent. a public domain image of tux, the Penguin. I was learning Linux at the time, so the Cthulhu-Linux connection seemed particularly apt. You can see it at full resolution at DeviantArt.

It was either here or Ex Libris Noctournis - somebody had these cool images of the Creed symbols. Had all of them, not just the Avenger one, but I didn't steal borrow any of the rest of them.

Being obsessed with Technocracy fun and games I love retro-futuristic stuff (a la "The City of Tomorrow!" etc). During my usual internet time wasting I found this pic of a "weed killer" and the ad just cracked me up, it really gave me a feel of man/technology vs mother nature (or Weaver vs. Wyld)...like the guy is literally burning the world with his fancy new burninating machine...so yeah, thus it was born

Old, OOOOLD photo of me - from the premiere of "The Two Towers", in Gothenburg! Someone, and I've NO idea who, shot it with one of the then very new and fancy mobile phone cameras, and I cropped that picture a wee bit.

Thinking of changing it to one that's only about three years old, though, taken after a lrp :)

Cool to hear everyone's stories!
