How about a resized version of this for your avatar - it's the Silent Assassin (apparently) from the Hitman computer game (apparently). :lol:

I wouldn't call Mr Teh-ah-tim-eh an Assassin, more like a nutter with vision.

Anyway, my current avatar is of Raoul Duke, the fictional alter-ego of Hunter S Thompson, as played by Johnny Depp from the movie of Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. And the signature is a line he utters when Dr Gonzo, his friend on his trip to Vegas, stops a car in order to pick up a hitch-hiker. Earlier, he hallucinated bats coming at him, hence the line... :?

Wow, you hallucinate bats and you can either become a caped crusader or drive to Vegas. How the chips do fall.

I'd probably get a rabies shot.

With the amount of drugs taken by Raoul Duke in Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, he probably wouldn't need a rabies shot. All the drugs would kill the virus. :|

To whit, what he was carrying in the back of the car...

We had two bags of grass, 75 pellets of mescaline, five sheets of high-powered blotter acid, a saltshaker half-full of cocaine, a whole galaxy of multi-colored uppers, downers, screamers, laughers... Also, a quart of tequila, a quart of rum, a case of beer, a pint of raw ether, and two dozen amyls.

As in, that's an hour's worth of drugs for him?

Yeah, but look at Keith Richards now. He looks like 100 miles of Outback Australia road, on his good days. Whereas Hunter S Thompson...

Ooh, bad example. He put a gun in his mouth. :?

This new one is related to my others (for whats it worth :lol:). Its background art for a fan animation short film this husband and wife animation team are doing. I loved the design on it, very disney-esq. and ever since seeing an animatic for the film i've been enamored with the project.

here the full image (i tried to img tag it but when i did half the picture was cut, which was odd cause if i just view the link directly it doesn't look that big :? )

here's the animatic
