So my current avatar is using a Smiley from the SmileyHouse Click MMORPG I was involved in. I tried to use the power of .png transparency to make it feel like the character was breaking out of the background. The background itself is from my previous avatar, which was based on the General from the Click example game Urban Attack Force that was the inspiration for TDC's mascot Mitch.
It is one of the characters from the games I made back in the early 2000's called Tops the pig,
But the actual picture was part of a redesign I started for the 4th game which didn't really get all that far.
A Pig's head with arms and legs shouldn't really work, should it? I was going for a 90's macsot look and it actually kind of worked.
My avatar is a slightly edited version of a character from a cancelled game. He was basically the narrator and told the story at the start of the game. It was a blob character based on caricature-ish thing I did of myself earlier.
Some say I'm a piece of slime pretending to be a human, some say I'm a human pretending to be a piece of slime.
