Variations on an Avatar 3 by hitokirivader Variations on an Avatar 3 by hitokirivader
Since joining LiningUp.net in early 2005, I've used the image of Darth Vader pointing as my avatar everywhere I could, from other messageboards to AIM to right here at deviantART. I felt that the iconic image of old school Vader was the perfect way to represent my Star Wars fandom and my screenname.

But then as the DVD release of Revenge of the Sith neared and those of us at LiningUp.net started planning a line-up for the midnight release at the Hollywood Virgin Megastore, I thought it'd be a neat idea to turn my avatar into an ad promoting the event. Then Thanksgiving neared, and I made a Thanksgiving-themed avatar. Then Christmas. Then New Years... and so on. It sorta became my gimmick, that I'd always have a variation of the same avatar. And I still do.

In order of creation, the themes from left to right: the original avatar, Revenge of the Sith DVD release, Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years Day 2006, Valentine's Day, King Kong, Saint Patrick's Day, Battlestar Galactica, April Fool's Day, Easter, Superman Returns, Halloween, blank, Batman Begins, Independence Day, me, 300, Iron Man, Indiana Jones, Hellboy, Halo, Raptor Jesus, Don Hertzfeldt's "Rejected," James Bond, Hanukkah, Dearth Nadir of The Muppet Show, Spaceballs, Obama '08, The Shredder, Watchmen, the "PTKFGS" fad from YTMND.com, the "lol, internet" fad from YTMND.com, Star Trek, "Little Fatty," and Wolverine.

Star Wars and its characters are property of Lucasfilm Ltd. I'm not making prints of this; it's just up for free for all of you to enjoy.

I was about to say "Not me" but I remembered that I used the smile with the blood stain for two non-watchmen related things

Personally I'm most proud of my Iron Man and James Bond ones. :)

They may be the most awesome in terms of skills taken to make (cuz finding that pose = awesome), but Raptor Jesus is just pure awesomeness. ;)

(And sorry for the double post. Can't figure out how the hell to delete one...)
