    Term time's over, I don't have any employment until next week - this is what I'll subject you to in the meantime.

    I've no idea why I bothered making any avatars - the only one I got uploaded last time was the ugly one - but I suppose they're simple and easy to do. Well, you would think, wouldn't you? Some still manage to overcrowd or tarnish a simple 100x100 pixel block. It's something to do of a Monday evening.

    I don't think thin borders work - at least not on this site. In fact, I'm not even sure a 2 pixel thick border (which these are) is sufficient. Sorry about the rambling; have to make it not spam.

    As for signatures, here's that Christian one I was sporting recently:

    Went for a sort of faux-graffiti Banksy sort of thing. No idea if I got there.

    Some bonus stuff 'from the vault' - eat your heart out, Walt Disney:

    I used to post in the wrestling thread on a videogame forum, and posted the monthly threads for a while. Eventually, their cynicism and obsession with memes ate away at even my weary facade - and they seemed happy to make their own bargain basement banners. My special Christmas edition:

    One month later, around Royal Rumble time:

    [​IMG]

    My final one - on the Road to WrestleMania (this was after I reluctantly did Triple H Month for February):

    [​IMG]

    And some more avatars - also from the vault:

    I didn't use the gradient on the latest ones like I did on these, though I think it does make them 'pop' and feel less flat. You'll often find a similar effect on, you know, iOS icons and that. Again, rambling.

    ALl good work mate, really like the road to wrestlemania one. Think a 2 px border is fine, anymore and you'll just reduce the workspace for the avatar but 1 px, especially here, is defo too small!

    Hmm, let's see - what did I post in here? Here's four versions of the same avatar:

    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Borders, image placement, blood red or Impact blue - it all makes a difference. Apparently.

    These are all BRAND NEW (to this thread):

    Here's one which I forgot to post:

    Magical, isn't it?

    Absolutely beautiful Deapool there, i would almost pay money to use that. Almost.

    Infact... would you mind if i did use it for free??

    Have to say well done on making me laugh twice with the small triple H on the two early posters.

    Good stash!

    Did I never post a SummerSlam 2013 LD? I should have because I just found some stuff I did for it (it's a very slow Saturday, but I'm probably gonna have sex on Wednesday to make up for it, OK?) and thought it was pretty good:

    [​IMG]

    Evidently, I was going for an eighties VHS effect with that one. The one coming up was a bit more neon. Maybe I'd be playing some Hotline Miami?

    [​IMG]

    As for the content of the LD, it would have been the typical classy affair:

    I was worried for a minute that I didn't have a picture of The Bellas covered in semen on my hard drive. That's a relief.

    I found the original files I worked on! I assume I still have the font I used for the logo on here, somewhere, so I'll have to find that later. I managed to use all the pieces and slap together a poster:

    [​IMG]

    It also gave me the opportunity to use the watermark I've been working on (bottom left).
