Title: Why your avatar?
Post by: Unicorn on June 10, 2015, 03:15:36 am
So, why your avatar everyone?

Mine because Harpo Marx is the best silent comedian in the world.

I also thought that is was time for a change from my awesome unicorn avatar. :P

Mine is Satsuki Kiryūin from Kill la Kill because, well, I'm your (benevolent) dictator, right? I need to inspire terror on your face!

(I've set it up on April's Fools and it stuck ever since, because why not? It used to be my character Yuki Kagayaki (http://yukikagayaki.me/) before.)

Its not thaaaat scary... O.O
Title: Re: Why your avatar?
Post by: Juju on June 10, 2015, 03:38:34 am
Did you watch Kill la Kill? She's definitely scary. Or not that much. Well, at least until episode 17, anyway.

This anime is bats*** insane, I tell you.

My avatar is just the avatar version of CW logo I guess, with of course Walrii in it.

Until December 2014, I used pictures of my music albums as avatars (usually the latest release or the one in the works). Before I started selling music for a few years, I used Omnimaga's 2001 logo as avatar (I used the same avatar for over 5 years)

Iron man because that is my skin in minecraft :) I want to change it to a iron walrii tho ;)

Post by: DarkestEx on June 10, 2015, 04:21:43 pm
Well, my Pacman sprite was actually made by me for a game I worked on.
It should have been a mix of Tron and Pacman and Curve fever, with a retro VFD look and glowing, but I never finished it.
So I just scaled the image up to 1024px and used it in many online forums.
It replaced my old South Park avatar.

Post by: Streetwalrus on June 10, 2015, 04:48:16 pm
People started using custom pixel art as their avatars. Wanted to get into the trend, so I rolled my own. Also I'm a Linux fan if that wasn't obvious. :P
Title: Re: Why your avatar?
Post by: DJ Omnimaga on June 10, 2015, 05:40:28 pm
So basically, judging from the resolution and colors, me and Cumred got SNES avatars, Street and DarkestEx NES and Alexgt Intellivision. :P
Title: Re: Why your avatar?
Post by: Streetwalrus on June 10, 2015, 05:51:53 pm
Needs more 2600. :P
Title: Re: Why your avatar?

What about me? :P If a groucho Marx wlrii gets made, it will become my profile picture.
Title: Re: Why your avatar?
Post by: DJ Omnimaga on June 10, 2015, 06:00:12 pm
@Streetwalrus your Tux avatar would need to have only 1 color per row of pixels (excluding transparent pixels) to be 2600 (like the Walrii in your large signature banner). :P
Title: Re: Why your avatar?
Post by: DarkestEx on June 10, 2015, 06:05:50 pm
You'r avatar looks great, @Streetwalrus.
Did you make it your own?
Title: Re: Why your avatar?
Post by: Streetwalrus on June 10, 2015, 06:10:30 pm
Yeah I scaled tux down and traced the sprite with lower color and simpler details. Then I added the monocle as a transparent layer (which probably breaks the NES style because it adds a few colors).
Title: Re: Why your avatar?
Post by: DJ Omnimaga on June 10, 2015, 06:30:25 pm
You should use the :walrii: Tux :P

I like how your avatar looks, though. :)
Title: Re: Why your avatar?

Title: Re: Why your avatar?

@Juju actually has some pixel art ponies, but I don't think he made them. You might want to ask him.

Or you could do a Walrii version of Fluttershy.

Everything started with the "Duck Tape" pun, which evolved into Duke Tape ( (-_(//)); ) and to end up as a Duke (Walrii) Tape as you can see.

Smoking courtesy of Cumred. Also I should fix it as it doesn't move. OCD things...

It actually loads the image I think, though. Someone had this happen before but I forgot if it happens in all browsers.
Title: Re: Why your avatar?
Post by: Unicorn on July 03, 2015, 02:34:52 am
I think I can clarify that. It does load images, with darkest ex's emoji, when he hid them in a spoiler, it still took forever to load on my kindle.
Title: Re: Why your avatar?
Post by: DJ Omnimaga on July 03, 2015, 05:58:19 am
And this is why spoiler tags can't be used to hide large GIFs in signatures. Many people do this to save people some bandwidth and don't realize the truth.
Title: Re: Why your avatar?
Post by: alexgt on July 03, 2015, 01:00:15 pm
So it does't play it but it loads the GIF/ image?
Title: Re: Why your avatar?
Post by: Snektron on July 03, 2015, 03:46:16 pm
Yeah, ofcourse. What happens is, the Javascript tells the browser the image isn't rendered yet, so why render it when it doesn't need to be rendered? :P
Title: Re: Why your avatar?
Post by: Unicorn on July 06, 2015, 09:15:40 pm
So you get instant image whenever at no internet cost after loading the page!
Title: Re: Why your avatar?
Post by: DJ Omnimaga on July 10, 2015, 04:16:42 pm
Not necessarily. As I said, I ran into instances where images hidden inside spoilers loaded before even expanding the spoiler. But I last tried on Omni, which had the mod setup with some box below the button and less graphical. Maybe it's different with our setup?

I suspect it's adult-only material. I hope it's not like those anime that one Omni member watched back in the days that were particularly gruesome, though. A lot of those seemed totally messed up, but that's the type of stuff that would be considered normal in Japan on TV. :P


Also I have 18 avatars O.O

Nah, you'll understand everything if you watch Madoka Magica. Still find him adorable, though.

Open if you watched it or you don't care about it: ShowHide
The girls are pretty much doomed once they become magical, and Kyubey feeds on that. At the same time, he doesn't know it's bad since his alien race don't have any concept of emotion or empathy. The anime revolves pretty much about a group of girls finding this out. It's pretty weird at times.

It's nice, but the issue is that it's not resized properly. When resizing pixel art, always resize it to a multiple of its original size. For example, a 24x24 sprite should only be resized to 48x48, 72x72, 96x96 and so on, not 50x50, 70x70, 110x110, and especially not with bicubic/bilinear interpolation. Otherwise, this results into some pixels being larger than others, like in the example above.

Title: Re: Why your avatar?

I personally would just make a standard icon (green?) but paste a 24x24 walrus on it.

Yeah, that would be a small mix up :P

It would have to be the gray walrus combined with Walrette or Walrianne. :P But again we never know, maybe one is trans? :P It's impossible to tell under such resolution. :P

Also I should change my avatar to a different walrus at some point. :P

Changed it again! Now it's one of the brothers from Osomatsu-san. Which one, you ask?

Code (PHP) Select
<?php
$matsuno
=["oso","kara","choro","ichi","jyushi","todo"];
header("Location: ".$matsuno[mt_rand(0,5)]."matsu.png");


They all look alike, anyway.

Title: Re: Why your avatar?
Post by: Juju on April 04, 2016, 03:12:18 pm
Yeah, Homestuck quite has a particular style. Well, the site is named MS Paint Adventures, so it's pretty much the style you get drawing things in MS Paint, except it's made in Photoshop. Then, with Homestuck, it evolved into a pretty particular style, which can vary wildly depending of the mood, even using guest artists once in a while.

South Park originally aired only on cable TV or paid channels, so no I don't know much about it. Not to mention when it got popular it was well after I stopped watching TV anyway.

I noticed his avatar looked similar to South Park, though, since I know the style they use, but it looked too detailed to be anything from South Park to me (the 3D, for instance).
Title: Re: Why your avatar?
Post by: Juju on April 05, 2016, 05:56:19 am
That doesn't look really 3D a lot. Well... Fun fact: South Park is actually made with 3D software.

If you know the story well I would assume that you might be able to follow just from the images, but it depends how much the story was altered over the original. The cartoon is not your typical kid cartoon that is oriented towards making kids laugh and is much more serious, but it's still a kid's cartoon watchable by adults as well, meaning they probably changed some stuff to appeal to kids.

Another thing is that the cartoon was made in Japan IIRC then translated to French, like most cartoons that aired in France from the 70's to the 90's.


EDIT: Nope actually the animation was not made in Japan, but rather North Korea O.O . It's from France but for some reasons they outsourced the animation work to North Korea (Studio SEK)
