Hey gang, I see a LOT of cool avatars & sigs here in GBATemp & I often wonder why these graphics are chosen & maybe where these graphics came from. Tell us the story behind your avatar & sig! Mine is easy: I ALWAYS LOVED cartoons & Popeye was ALWAYS my favorite! I have him tattoed on my right arm/shoulder, flexing & snapping a drumstick in each hand (because I am & always will be a drummer). The Suckerpunch name & graphic is due to my NJ attitude that I grew up having (for those of you not in the US - I always had a trouble making bad ass punk attitude ...that was until I grew up ). mrthnight was kind enuff to show off his PhotoShop expetise & made me my 1st Popeye SIG. I happen to own a flash drive with U3 on it & downloaded a copy of GIMP (portable version) that I started messing with & what you see below is my very 1st attempt at a SIG & using GIMP. (WAY easier than PhotoShop & FREE!) I heisted the graphis from different sites thru Google images search, cut copy & pasted a bunch of different pictures & came up with what you see below. Not bad for my 1st attempt. It came out just as I envisioned it - very comic strip looking. My fave SIG on GBATemp (other than mine)?: The one that Hugecock was using for the last few months! GREAT play on the words & very funny & creative! Avatar/SIG I'm most curious about?: The avatar that Takeshi uses. I did a little research & read a little on the musician/alien person & find it creepy & weird. But that is why it intrigues me. I hope he will explain it in this thread - looking 4ward to it! Now it's your turn to tell your story!!!
