Actually mine freaks me out a little....(a lot) but i was so excited about being approved and wanted something to go with the name.....I rushed into it and now have regrets....(gee, what else is new?)    Still tip-toeing around E and getting my uh....orientation.....So I've got to look for a new one, but don't want to keep changing.....might take a while......any url suggestions?  By the way,  I love using ellipses, i know they get on some nerves.....   do you think I should just change my name as well.......start fresh???

Actually, that avatar makes me laugh. The pose is totally classic cheesecake, and I had never seen a picture of a kangaroo laying down before.

So it's like "Hey, sexeh. Ever had a kangaroo before? ^_-" and makes me giggle. I really like it.

I'm thinking about changing my avatar. I tend to be kinda dark and broody, and unlike most, I don't play at being "the bad boy"; I am the bad boy. I rather try to hide the darkness within enough to function around "normal people". If it were economically viable for me to do so, I'd grow my long hair back in an instant. Also, I always have some face hair, and tend not to shave, so me running around with a couple of days worth of stubble is common. I also don't have the time to be bothered with shaving or trimming body hair, with the exception of the hair "down there" when it gets too wildly 70's. With all that said, does the following suit me?

I'm thinking of changing my avatar.. I really like the one I have now, but I think I need a bit of a change, possibly, if I find another one that suits me.. This is what I'm considering:


The first one is very sexy and the bright color of the skirt seems to match me, because I love to wear bright colors.. The second also works because I have socks like those and love to wear them, but i'm thinking maybe the picture isn't close enough.. maybe it's just the wrong pose.. so i'm starting to lean towards the first one.. Anyone care to help me decide?

Oh... my.

That's fantastic. I like it and I think it fits you quite well, actually.

Personally, I like that one (because there are heels in it. duh. *giggles*).  But you do lose a little because it's necessarily smaller to get the whole picture in.  It sorta gives me that Flashdance/Jennifer Beals feeling too.

My avatar is actually a Shambler.

There is a game called "Quake", in which there is a monster called The Shambler. This is where i took out my nickname for E and the avatar is a picture of a Shambler in a map where he comes up as a surprise.

We call him shammy, because he looks cute when it is not attacking us =X

Candy, Trieste and Bliss --
Thanks for your comments!   I guess if I'm gonna be weird, this is the place.  And yeah, it's kinda kang porn.....
*shoulders rise*      It embarrasses me, so maybe that's not a bad thing, either, eh?

Candy, love the thigh highs and heels .  A little small, but I'm leaning toward that one.

Uh, Stattick, I'd say yes yes, it suits you!!!  Where is my fan?

Shambler -- having trouble seeing yours....

I just think he's begrudgingly allowing the other man to do as he pleases. ;D

... the facial expression does not suit you, my dear. Too whiny. :/

Edit: I appear to have found the model, though, or someone similar. Totally Stattick:







... okay, maybe not so similar in colour? I'm really not sure, but there you have it.

I got it, but thatīs the idea. This gif is an improvisation from what happens in one map in Quake, where there is a dark room when you get in, and then the room lights up with the shambler jolting the player.

Edit: I appear to have found the model, though, or someone similar. Totally Stattick:

Hmm... it took me awhile to see "whiny" in the pic I chose, but I can see it now. His facial expression is vague, ephemeral, and seems to flit from one emotion to another. To me, he usually looks like he's on the verge of rage, like someone just insulted him, and given a few more seconds, he's going to hurt someone. Other times, he looks like he's full of dark carnal energy. There's almost an expression that says, "I'm going to rip your clothes off whether you like it or not." One way or the other, to me, he usually looks dangerous.

The model that you found does seem to have a similar physical look. But I do not think that it is the same person. The guy you found looks like a model. The photos look like beefcake. There's no menace, no danger in the gleam of his eye. He's smiling. He does look strong, like someone you would not want to fight if you could help it. Unfortuneatly, he's smiling sweetly. His expression seems to say, "Hi, I'm a pretty guy, and not dangerous at all. I'm a friendly and happy sort of guy." Your guy also looks too clean. That's not gonna work for me. The guy I proposed, looks like he probably wouldn't give you the choice as to whether or not there'd be violence - it would be his choice, and whether or not he decides to bring it.

The photographer that took the pic I'm thinking of using is a Turkish photographer by the name of Mehmet Turgut. Looking through his portpholio on DeviantART, I doubt that he used a professional model. None of his posted photos look like they are of professional models. The photos are too energetic, raw, and candid. Somehow, I imagine that the guy that was photographed truly can be a dangerous sort with just a bit of provocation. Here's some other pics by the same artist, probably his most famous btw. All pics are the same model:

He sorta reminds me of a younger, better looking Benicio Del Toro... who basically exudes all that you just mentioned.

Yeah. I could see that. 'Cept that I don't think Benicio Del Toro is attractive - but I'm a hetero guy, so I'm lousy at telling good looking guys apart from bad looking guys.  :P

Ok, thanks for explanation.  Alas, the way the light hits my screen makes a big difference, too!

It's as you say - I could see why the expression appealed to you, but to me it's just like he's ... whining. >.>

The first picture of the other model is what made me think of you. The smug "I gots a woman, and guess what she's doing?" thing seemed very Stattick-ey.

Maybe that's because I think Stattick is awesome with sexy writing. :P

I thought the third of Trieste's pictures of that guy looked more bad-boy.  I could see that shot pulling back to show the inside of a cave in the tropics, with the damsel tied up and not quite sure if he was there as a rescuer, or one of her captors. 

Or both.

And in an uncanny coincidence, the bobble inside a Magic Eight-Ball happens to have 20 sides.   ;D
