Your avatar is cool, but your name is super cocky!

It is not cocky! It is just right. :lol:

Well I'm not exactly a master of the Japanese language and culture so I can't say for sure how referring to yourself with the -sama honorific actually is looked upon but I do know that the -sama honorific is used primarily in addressing persons much higher in rank than oneself, so it would seem by giving yourself the -sama honorific that your declaring that you are better then us. Or to put it another way, it would seem that your being cocky.

I know what the -sama honorific is used for. If I offended anyone, I apologize. I didn't mean anything by it, I just did it for fun.

Anyhoo, my avatar is almost always dragoon related, or more specifically, kain from final fantasy 2/4.

My avatar should be obvious. I made it for Pojo, and tweaked it for here. As you can see, there's no real noticeable difference in quality (Dan frequently questions just how I pulled this off), and it looks kinda stylistic fitting the border on there.

So, yeah.

Some years ago I ran out of money for college and had to quit after 2.5 years and get a "real job". A friend hooked me up with a glorified data entry thing at an egg factory... yup. So, I sat at a computer and did a job for ten hours a day that I was painfuly over qualified for. It only took me about 3 hours to do my daily work. The other 7? I brought in some roms from home to play, but that was tricky, and painful with a keyboard. The rest of the time... ms paint. When I used to spend all my time on the SPOnG.com forum I wanted to make an avatar that expressed my gaming taste. Master Chief dressed as Mario was perfect, as I'm not a playstation fan. I own a ps3... it's dustier than the wii. God help me if the xbox breaks. Thankfuly I've got Alteil to play. ;)

So anyway, made it. just painted on a pic of MC. Was all I could do to stay sane. You ever count eggs? Not fun... :shock:

With all the wonderful art already done for Alteil I wanted to use one of the cards for my avatar. I poked around through some of the directories and stumbled upon this Christmas version of an Alteil card which I really like. When I get some more free time I intend to prowl the Japanese card database for a more suitable Falkow card.

Actually, I just designed this avatar. It came from the Alpha testing, when we were all in the chat while trying to load the game. I began to address the others as the "Fellow Alpha Numbers". It just sort of stuck. I actually intend to make a guild for the members of the Alpha test. Hence, the Alpha Number avatar, with all four colors, the # sign, and the letter alpha.
