    They're not made by Linkiboy, they're made by Orc, sheesh. Orc just said that for the lulz to piss off Linki, which proved effective [​IMG]

    Also, Orc has made them all already, and there's no more available.

    I always thought TF2 was more serious looking [​IMG]

    atleast TF 1 was "serious" xD

    TF2 is cool, the avatars are cute/kiddied up.

    you could always implement her theme into your own avatar

    Nope. Those are fairly accurate representations of what TF2 looks like.

    In case none of you have noticed, it's actually Kirby combined with TF2 characters.

    Come to think of it, I wonder if most of the people that have those avatars actually play TF2.

    I think they do. I know there is quite a few members that play TF2.

    If you are a member with a TF2 avatar and don't play TF2 then you are truly stupid.

    ;_; I hardly get any time to play, but I tend to play TF2 whenever I have a spare moment.

    And then 5 hours later it's 2 AM and I haven't done the Biology homework that's due in tomorrow morning.

    The avatars are yukkuri, a meme involving giant, disfigured Touhou heads. They were first discovered on 2chan when an Anon tried to make a Shift_JIS portrait of Reimu and Marisa and failed horribly, prompting the original fanart as a response (such as this image).

    Orc drew those from scratch?

    If so, I don't doubt it for a second. Serious skrizzlez.
