That's one of my favorite lines Tina. :D

My avatar is of the Eighth Doctor, as played by Paul McGann in The Night of the Doctor, and the signature is a darkly funny line from the same.
I've lived for over 2000 years, and not all of them were good ones. I've made many mistakes. And it's about time I did something about that.

My Avatar came from Kel I think it was on the Shop forum - she used to do a cartoon strip of the fans adventures - it was brilliant - my sig is a quote that I really relate to by Prince.

It was Zephyr that did the cartoon strips, Peri. ;)

Mine is a fanart of Lion & Mouse, a Pair of characters from the story I mentioned in the reading now topic.

Probably the strangest hero duo I've come across. A 200+ year old undead former member of the royal guard, and an ancient dragon that was changed into a mouse.

They aren't in the story that much, but they stole the show for me. :lol:

Do people make festive Discworld avatars?

It took an afternoon to get the shades on Slant. The dodge tool helped a lot.

Hipbone smacking skeleton. Whip it, baby!

Why do the knees have to stay together, did you horizontally flip one image over before animating it? Or is it made of lots of images? It's too fast to tell.

Must get myself a shiny new avatar soon. Love the dancing skeleton.

My signature is a shameless bit of plugging, as all the cool kids go to the Irish Discworld Convention. And the not so cool and not so kids too.
