    I've always wondered the story behind your profile picture.

    I suddenly went from neutral to loving it. This thread did some good.

    OT: Mine's sheer laziness. when another somethingGate drama happens and avatars become stupid memes as protest I might change it again to be a furry with Steven Buscemi's face and a silly hat or whatever the community picks up on next.

    My avatar is a photoshop of Tokyo with a tiger on it. I made this because I was bored.

    The tiger came from an image by a DeviantART user Kiminukii. @Benjamin Tam liked the tiger and made a cropped image with it.

    Mine is Takumi from Initial D. It's not very original, but I chose this picture because it looks like my face that I have very often.
    Before this I had the "Machine Gun downshift" from InitialD again, I liked it because it was so cool (And trippy) that GIF!
    Here it is:

    I love Foxes, best animals ever. That's why I have this weird avatar. Also I don't like picturing my face, so it's another reason :p

    My story is that I wanted a avatar for my YT (link in sig), so my friend made this for me. It is me as Phineas from Phineas and Ferb.
    My old pic was me after I crashed the SRSP Sunburst

    I find that super ironic. A man who calls himself bible basher is taking about morals?
    I'd like to see that gif... for reasons...
    Initials, studios. Hopefully in CG or music, or something.

    Well, there was a need for a placeholder image for the forum avatars. Then someone decided that the picture should be an icon of a person.
